When you post...make sure you tell us the make & model of what you need help with. In general, that code is a critical failure, cpu comes to mind. Make sure the cpu fan is working. Pull one ram stick out at a time, seeing if it boots as you go. Then if you have onboard video, pull the video card out & try the onboard out. If there are any add-on cards take them out one at a time & see if it boots. If it's a socket 775 intel, the cpu socket might have fried, replace the motherboard is the option there. Finally, if the manual is a necessary item, go to the maker's site & download it or search google for it.

Motherboard power is on but cannot display screen, the monitor is black or no screen.


your problem could be almost any of your hardware components
the best way to detirmine wich one/how to fix it is with a process of illimination. You should do this by switching your hardware components with known good ones.
being a display problem the order i would test with is this.
  1. disconect everything but the screen
  2. swap screen for a known good one
  3. disconect graphics card and try the onboard (if no onboard try another gc)
  4. test psu (power supply unit) this can be done with either a psu tester, multimitre or try with another psu
  5. try removing all your RAM, when you boot if your system beeps a couple of times you know that your motherboardand cpu are good. if it doesnt beep it is probably your motherboard or cpu.

Processor overheating


Hi have you cleaned the heatsink? Also replace the paste on the CPU, also you could try installing an extra fan on the case to increase air flow. Also check that your RAM is seated properly and any other chip and card on your board is firmly plugged in. If all this fails replace your CPU. Regards mistyman

Can I hold DHHS accountable for the burden they put upon me? If not, is there someone that can be held accountable? What can I logically and honestly do to remedy this prob. I explained my prob below! I was getting QMB part of Mainecare and my spouse at the time we were dating but living together was getting the QI part of Mainecare. We are both disabled and only get SSDI. However being honest and do our best to always do the right thing we go to DHHS office on Griffin RD in Bangor, ME within a month of us getting married where the worker we saw tells us we don't qualify for anything but the min of FS and both Q1 part of Mainecare and serious voice tells us to divorce. I have made a few trips within last months to same DHHS. One sends us to Eastern Area of Aging to see if there were secondaries we can get. This past Monday hubby and I went to our appt with Eastern Area of Aging & was told they strongly believe I could get spousal exclusion also warning it could mean my hubby loses help but because it was a volunteer a newer one at that she couldn't tell me definitely cause she didn't know the formula as she still learning; tells us to go back to DHHS to ask about spousal exclusion. So I go back to DHHS this past Thurs and got a worker with more smarts, heart with approx 10 yrs working for DHHS tells me I qualify for spousal exclusion and took the time to answer all my questions. I told her I had QMB till hubby and I married June 2016 & shared with her what the DHHS worker told us when hubby and I went in to show marriage certificate to update the change. She looked at me with shocked eyes and dropped jaw in bewilderment. Then says I would of never lost it as I would of qualified for spousal exclusion from the day we married. And had it been her that we got when we were being honest wouldn't have only told me about spousal exclusion but would of applied me as she could see I have major medical problems that is too much a financial burden for my hubby and I. She also told me I was to submit all unpaid bills even if monthly making payments were being made. I thought I was only to submit bills I paid in full or on a payment plan. So started Thurs night on a Medical Bills Tracker to go through all the medical bills and sort things out. I haven't even put a dent in the pile and see I'm responsible for just over 6K I'm predicting once done I could be closer, if not over, 10K. In collections is currently 1K but once done with pile amount in collections could be closer to 2K or more. So the mess has impacted my credit and if things were done by professionals I wouldn't be losing my hair stressing over my medical bills and how it declines my credit. I know I'm in a small group that actually pay their medical bills any and all bills to be honest! I am disabled and get SSDI. Worked 1992-2013 a lot of times working 2 jobs! Dr in 2013 practically dragged me out of work as was just diagnosed with Hep C, CKD Stage 3 & liver disease! I also have depression disorder, panic attacks, anxiety disorder! So even this incompetent DHHS worker putting extra financial burden on me unnecessarily affects those things. I am trying to do the right thing but get kicked down by the very people that are paid to help me. What are my rights and can I fix this at a faster pace then not even fixed it by the day I die?
