This could be a hard drive problem. The hard drive is looking for the boot sector on it, but the boot sector is broken. Computer shuts down and tries again but your hard drive can't find the boot sector so it shuts down tries again etc.

Hi, you can download a manual here:

Here is some more info:

I think one of the ram modules is defect.
Set the bios setting to auto for the ram and let it handle it itself.
It has to work together with the cpu. Maybe the cpu does not
supports 800 mhz.
Read all about that in the manual.

The ECS C51GM-M Motherboard problem is that the fans turn but no video, no post, no bios.

This could be due to many things. One is a bad power supply. Any peripheral that is bad could cause it. Your memory could be bad. I would unhook every peripheral/hardware but the video cable, memory, CPU and keyboard/mouse. If you get video then one of the other things are bad. For instance, I have found that a bad CD will prevent a system from booting.
If you have no luck, then the problem lies in the motherboard, memory, or CPU. To eliminate the memory possibility, take one stick of memory out and try it.

Its not a bios problem but on insertion of video card your ram got some tampered. Just reinsert the video card and your ram properly and now start your system. It might solve your problem.

Windows will not start up

Have you tried pressing F8 as the computer is booting? Press it repeatidly as the computer starts. If the computer is not that far gone you should get a Multi-options menu-choose safe mode, then post back after you get into safemode. Post back if you cannot get onto safe modeand let me know the results

Windows won't load

Try booting to "Safe Mode" (tapping the "F8" key on boot), or however you can get to your Desktop, click start, right click "My Computer", select "Properties", then "Advanced" tab, then click the "Settings" button under "Startup and Recovery", then uncheck "Automatically restart" under "System Failure", click "OK" then "OK" again and restart your PC.

That should allow you to run without the instant restarting on BSOD, so you can repair/remove Mcafee.

Video controller drivers not found

That is the nvidia driver you need. 

However to get it to work right boot into safe mode, uninstall the Windows generic drivers, cancel the auto install and then run this driver's install program.

I had this problem. It was a continuous series of slow beeps. It was a memory problem. I swapped the memory and the system booted.
