    Start with only to Gbs Corsair RAM, see if the system goes, if it works then problem is with RAM, If you get problems even with one RAM module check viodeo adapter , test with a replacement adapter and see if you keep getting troubles.
    Some trouble to video adapter may be fixed with a driver update.

I have a mobo C51PVGM-GB that I would like to upgrade the video card and not use the one built into the Mobo.


You are upgrading the graphics.
Instead of using Integrated Graphics, you will be using a dedicated graphics card.

Integrated Graphics is also referred to as OnBoard Graphics.
On the motherBoard.

The GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is soldered to the motherboard.

It is not a video (Graphics) card.

A dedicated graphics adapter card has it's own GPU, and graphics ram memory.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

Information on the Gateway 4006136R - Nvidia GeForce 6150 AM2 uBTX 1394 motherboard,

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/Shared/4006136R/4006136Rnv.shtml

Viewing this small photo of the motherboard, the Orange long slot you see is a PCI Express x16 slot.

1) The Northbridge chip is a C51PVG
2) The Southbridge chip is an MCP51

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_6_Series#GeForce_6100_and_6150_series

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

(CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another name is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short)

3) Made by ECS
4) Has an AM2 processor socket on the motherboard, for AMD processors.

Your existing CPU will not work with that motherboard. The AM2+/AM2 processor slot is for AMD processors only. For this motherboard, you will need one of the following processors: Phenom FX / Phenom / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2

Can i use AMD phenom 9850 in m2n-sli deluxe mother board


According to all of my available resource's the processor needs an AM2+ socket but your board has an AM2 socket. So I would contact the manufacturer and ask them just to be safe, but I am sure that the board you have has an AM2 socket for the CPU.

Hope this Helps,

No Beep, No LED Read-out just - -


Sounds like you have pretty much covered about everything. Are you saying that the system works OK, except when you try to get to BIOS, or is it not working at all?

If you are just having trouble getting into BIOS, there is the possibility that something is wrong with the F key that you use to access BIOS. Might try a different keyboard if this is the case.

I know that this is kind of a stretch, but haven't been able to think of anything else, yet.
