Question about ATI Asus P4R800-V Deluxe Radeon FSB800 Prescott Ready Motherboard (MOTAS30)
I hear the fans go when i turn it on.....that's it...nothing else.
And im sure the screen appers to be blank and the key board lights flash once and no feed back other than the fans spinning right? . this is a common problem with asus motherboards and AMD cpu's which indicates a bad motherboard or cpu if you have acces to anouther cpu try changing to that one if that doesnt work you're motherboard is gone

Tips for a great answer:
Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely
see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.
Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.
If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.
If it is a desktop try the steps below.
Try connecting another monitor to the computer.
Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and
connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor shows the display,
then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does and
same as your original monitor and does not show a display then your
video card has an issue.
