Question about PC Desktops
This began over the Thanksgiving holidays, 07. My computer would not boot to the BIOS. After stripping everything down to only the CPU and mobo, I assumed it was the mobo. I sent it back and it was found faulty. After I got a replacement board, it did the same thing. I sent back the CPU and it was found faulty as well. After I got a replacement CPU, it did the same thing. I went and bought a new PSU and it did the same thing.
I now have another RMA with the mobo supplier, but they swear they tested the replacement board before it went out. So, before I send this board back, I thought I'd get some advice here. Below are my specs.
Mobo: Nvidia 590 AM2, SLI, MCP, ATX, AMD
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ Windsor 3.0 Ghz, Socket AM2
PSU: Rosewill RP 550V2-S-SL, SLI ready
MEM: Corsair XMS2, DDR2 800, PC 6400, 1GB x4
Sounds like you have pretty much covered about everything. Are you saying that the system works OK, except when you try to get to BIOS, or is it not working at all?
If you are just having trouble getting into BIOS, there is the possibility that something is wrong with the F key that you use to access BIOS. Might try a different keyboard if this is the case.
I know that this is kind of a stretch, but haven't been able to think of anything else, yet.
