Ok your PC is not POSTing there are a number of test that you can do. Start by removing the BIOS/CMOS battery for about one minute and then reinstall in the correct orientation. This will set the BIOS/CMOS to defaults, thereby giving you a freash stating point. Clean the RAM fingers with tissue paper and install them alternately and one by one. Your PC should have a speaker connected to the output header, this is next to the LEDs for power and HDD. It should Beep once when all is ok, it should beep in a constant fashion if you power up your PC without any RAM installed. Keep the number of components down to a minimum, meaning disconnect all the hard drives and DVD drives. If you know for sure that the graphic card is working then leave it in, but if you don't know then take it out and plug the screen into onboard VGA. Clean the PC of dust, pay special attention of the CPU cooler and graphics card. Dust absorbs moisture and can there cause electrical shorts and cause components to fail, it also prevents sufficient airflow through the CPU cooler and therefore your CPU runs under very hot conditions, reducing it's life span.

In my experience it's often the mainboard that dies, however you must know which component or components are faulty, even if you ask a friend if you can test your components in his/her computer. Or you could take it in to a computer shop and they will be able to inform you of the problem and replace the component that has failed.

All the best, hoping you get up and running soon.
Thumbs up!

Got Certified Award Letter in mail stating I won above amt. Need to send $12.99


Sounds like a scam, smells like a scam. Regular mail or email? If email definitely a scam. Did you have to sign for the letter? What was the amount you supposedly won? If it runs to millions of dollars definitely a scam. Can you give me a name of the company or the full name of the person who signed the letter please. Post as a COMMENT to this post.

My plymouth breeze won't start, won't make a sound, but my lights and horn still works , help me.


any real answer yet? did the problem ever get resolved? i have the same problem with my sister's car. too cold to diagnose tonight, but will post the solution probably tomorrow. since the lights and heater works, but ignition and radio arent getting power, my first guess is there's probably a fried fusible link which controls the 2nd accessory power to the ignition switch. will post a solution soon.
