Powers on but no video.

Brand new elitegroup NFORCE3-A with a new Sempron 64 3000+processor, brand new hard drive with no operating system on it yet, brand new video card and brand new power supply. This powers on but has no video and has a single beep that keeps beeping. Any ideas on how I can fix this?

Your motherboards RAM is not working properly. First you try getting it out and installing again. If that not work you can change with other one.

E MACHINE W3118 KEEPS RESTARTING. TRIED TO ORDER A RESTORE DISK FROM EMACHINE, BUT THEY SAID IT IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE FOR THIS MODEL.


My advice is to not spend one penny on this computer. Unless you have upgraded it then it has only 256 MB of Ram, a slow Sempron processor, a small 300 watt power supply, small 80 GB hard drive, and it is running Windows XP which is an out of date operating system. Spend your money on a brand new Windows 7 computer and sell this one for scrap. You can get a computer that is 10 times better than this one for around $500.

Verify that SATA is enabled in the motherboard bios. If the drive is new, you will need to go into disk management and set it up for use.

Looking for a compatible processor for this mobo


It is impossible to fry a motherboard by using the wrong processor, the board simply won't post. You can use a chart at the ECS website, your motherboard is a Socket A type. Looks like the fastest processor that they have tested is a Athlon XP 3000+.

NFORCE3-A CPU fan & LED come on, nothing else, no beep or video


If the RAM is incompatible with your board then yes it would not allow a boot. Make sure your front panel power wire is plugged into the proper spot on the motherboard and retry. If it's the RAM then you will still have the problem. If it was the wire loose or in wrong spot then it should work. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
