Hi there

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.

I recently upgraded my ram (2 days back) to 1gb on my intel d915gav motherboard, first it seemed to work fine, but now the Pc won't boot, with it connected?


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

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

Hi...

The problem that you have are same in common, if your cd room will not boot you need to first boot your cd room, you just go to the BIOS to first boot your cd room,, when you turn on the computer you need to press the delete key (or F2) after that, use the arrow key to select, chose the boot priorities, then you need to first boot your cd room, after the cd room first boot, press F10 to save, the ok

Good luck !!!

Hard drive shuts off?? I think.


replace your power supply, you need to upgrade this to at least 500watts to avoid problem like this, there is no problem with your hard drive its your power supply

Update on Boot up problem with Versa P600


I have had this problem many many times at the Lab over the years, in fact I have even owned a PC that did exactly as you describe! ... What I found out was... SOME hard Drives seem to work OK, others??? It seems to be a "Timing" issue with the Hard Disk Controller.. There is NO FIX as such.. that I have ever found, Sometimes ya can find a brand of Drive that will work with.. ALWAYS.. but for the most part.. it's either put up with it.. OR get a new motherboard/PC. I have torn my hair out more than once as I said.. But essentially it is a Motherboard fault, specifically, the Hard Drive Controller, thats is at fault..
