Re: Post issue

I can't get Foxconn's website to pull up ATM, but I had this sort of issue once before, and felt completely stupid once I figured it out, and this is going to sound strange, but, remove your CPU fan and try to power up. If it does power up, then your CPU Fan is shorting out the system. If that doesn't fix it, then it is possible that your processor is not supported by the motherboard.

Hope this helps!

Either a MoBo or CPU problem. Do you not have a post analyser that plugs into a spare PCI slot? You could then start from bare bones and progress through or at least know it was the CPU or MoBo quicker.

New build, everything powers up but no display

Does the system beep when you first power it on? It sounds like the on-board viedo may have failed you. Do you have any other PC's around that you can test the monitor with? If it is the on-board video, you can use one of the expansion slots available on your mobo. There's a PCI-E x16 and a PCI-E x1 available on this board.

Fail to boot

When you say boot do you mean POST?

Is it turning on at all?

What happens exactly when you press the power button?

Any beeps?

Open the case and remove everything except 1 RAM chip, the cpu, the cpu cooler. Hook up the monitor to the onboard graphics and try to boot again.

If it POSTs then you know that you have a problem with one of the pieces of hardware you removed, replace them 1 at a time until it fails to POST then you know which piece is defective.

If it still doesn't POST with everything removed, try a different RAM chip, if it still fails POST then you need to replace the motherboard.

No beep,No Display on my monitor,only CPU heatsink fan is moving

You motherboard has onboard video. It's possible it needs to be disabled and the option changed to use the pci or pci-express slot for the Ati card you installed. Since you have no post error beeps this is the best place to start. Also I had built a system not to long ago and had a similar problem. Resetting the cmos on the motherboard (usually a pin combo) solved the issue.

Start by hooking up your vga cable to the onboard video.

Hope this helps.

I can't get this thing to POST

Hi just to double check are you using the correct processor and ram supported by your mobo . These mobos are designed to support only a few types of memory . Since you do not hear any audible beeps of POST progress check the processor and also have you plugged all the power connectors properly to the mobo from the PS.

The power on my pc keeps recycling

remove all hardware except RAM n CPU and then try it if the system gives you a disply then add all hardware 1 by 1 and keep checkin this way you can find the problem with the harware compatibility if the system wont disply then check the mobo for RAMs and CPU respectively if the problem presists then you have the BAD BOARD.-

Got power, but no booting activity

Assuming you have compatable memory fitted to the mobo; if you cannot get as far as the power on self test (P.O.S.T) or into the bios to set it up, remove all components you have fitted apart from the memory and the hard drive and a graphics card if not on board graphics and see if you can get as far as the post screen. If nothing appears and you just get a flashing cursor, then either the bios chip is faulty, or you have possibly stressed the board when fitting components and accidently broke a soldered contact. If you do get the post try putting back one peice of hardware at a time until you come across the problem part.
