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.

Continuous beeping sound


Do you get video? If so then it could be a stuck key on the keyboard.

Do you get no video? If so then reseat the RAM.

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
