Computer 'Won't boot

Hi all. Not sure where I went wrong, I have an ASUS p4pe Black Pearl Motherboard with 2.0 GHZ processor. Up until a week ago it was working fine for 2+ years. Now, The motherboard shows green light when power supply is plugged in, the cpu fan spins immediiately when the power to the supply is turned on, but the computer will not attempt to boot whatsover. I have tried running with known working components and have run barebone but it will not attempt to boot up--- no hard drive spin, no warning beeps or anything. I'm not sure where to start. I even took all components out of case and ran like that with same results. I am using ATI AIW 7500 AGP card for the vid card. I'm not sure when the computer last worked as it is not one I use all the time. BEFORE all this happened i tried downgrading the vid card (I was having capture errors but that's a whole nother story) to a ATI 128 pro. The computer worked fine with that card, I updated drivers restarted and left the computer for a day or so (again not a computer i use a lot)When I came back to it is when this non booting problem began. I tried going back to the AIW vid card and even tried another card but to no avail? Where should I start? Any help is appreciated! Thank you!!!

I realized I need an AGP to connect a monitor to my Asus P4PE-BP. Will AGP 8X work. Specs call for AGP 4X.

The 8x AGP cards will work in the 4x slot. But the 8x AGP card will lose about 1% to 2% of its performance.

Looking sound driver installer to my computer asus p4pe acpi bios revision 1005

Go to and enter your info there. You will be shown a page with all the pertinent drivers for your computer. Download your audio driver and then install it. If you still don't have any audio after that then your integrated sound card may be burned out. You can easily fix that by getting a PCI sound card.

The only Thing To Do, is view both Motherboards, user Manuals.
To see The boards CPU Support List.
It could be to do with, certain Motherboards Supporting, certain CPUs.
I.e a 533mhz cpu, would not run on a Motherboard that supports 400mhz. The Systems Bios, May cause Other Problems.
If your getting a Black Screen, is it a possible Graphics/Ram Problem, Rather Than The CPU ??
