Have you updated the BIOS for the motherboard? AM3 processors don't usually work correctly in an AM2 board without a BIOS upgrade. Also, did you remember to check the BIOS to see that it was set to use the onboard VGA? Likewise when you tried the graphics card (set to PCIe)? Another thing to do is plug the monitor in a known to be good computer to make sure it's working OK, perhaps a monitor setting is misconfigured.
Has the motherboard got a new BIOS battery?
Check the voltage of the battery, if it is a lithium battery CR2032 then the voltage should be 3 volts, if it is less than 2.98 volts then replace the battery.
reinstall the window xp open my computer from the start manue go to view and open folder options show the hidden files and also deselect the protecting window files below it and apply then click on the folder on the top in the my computer and remove all the suspected hidden files from all the drives and restart your system
WAS THE POWER SUPPLY WORKING? IS THE 4PIN BLACK AND YELLOW CONNECTOR FROM POWER SUPPLY IN PLACE? DID YOU TRY BIOS CLEAR? IF IT IS NOT A NEW BOARD - CHECK FOR BLOWN CAPS AROUND CPU (UPRIGHT CYLINDER TYPE THINGIES. RESEAT RAM. CHECK IF MAYBE ONE OF 24 PIN ATX CONNECTOR DIDN'T PUSH OUT OF SLEEVE.
try taking 1 stick of ram off the motherboard, and boot up with 1 stick in slot 1 or 2.
You should get some beeps, 1 is system Ok.
3 is usually RAM/Graphics problems.
Also try booting with the motherboard setup disk in the CD Drive, it may be looking for files to initialise the Board.
And the obvious, check that all cabling is correct from mainboard to front panel. Power on/off Reset et,c.
View the user manual to see if the board has any jumper/dip switch settings for different configurations.
Kaiwah, You never said how old the MB is, but it looks like the onboard
video is bad. If it is still under warranty have them fix it. If not go
out and get a new board. I have seen yours for about less than $100.00
Your pc is not for gaming right now because you are using Intel Pentuim 4 Mother board and CPU. Amd Athlon is best for gaming. I have a AMD Athlon 4200+ X2 with 4gb Ram and Nvidia 6800 256mb OC. to upgrade your computer to a gaming pc. you will need to switch your motherboard and cpu for best performance on games. in order to do that, you might need a different case for your new motherboard. because the one you have might not be right for the AMD Athlon motherboard unless you have a custom made computer. other than that everything is set for you. if you have less than 1gb ram you might want to add more. because the games they are coming with right now is 1gb minimum or required.
