Question about ASUS P4P800 SE (890552603657) Motherboard
i have recently re-built my pc, but it won't boot up?
It seems to power up ok, the hard drive light is on all the time and i am getting no picture on the screen, i have triple checked the graphic card connections and made sure everything else is plugged in properly. why am i getting nothing on screen?
Thankyou , frustrated novice
Yes i have monitor light.
The monitor was tried on other pc the other day to check it is ok, and it works fine.
i haven't checked the ram but i have some other memory sticks i can put in this week, i don't know how to check the processor but i am sure it is ok as it has been used recently in another pc.
Basically my gigabyte motherboard went down a month ago, so i replaced it with an Asus one that i had in another tower which worked fine, i plugged all the parts back into it after making sure that it was all compatible and now when i fire it up the hard drive runs full pelt ( red activity light on all the time even if i let it run for over an hour) and i get nothing on screen, it looks like it hasn't booted up. don't get it? thanks for any help you give.

Tips for a great answer:
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be
even something as small as a faulty power lead or fan lead can cause you problems
computers need all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly
make sure ram modules and cmos batteries have dust free secure seatings and cmos battery has charge some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail
check all power an data leads make sure they have dust free secure connections
cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working
check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease
hope this helps
