Hi, lets make sure you're hard drive is ok first.
The hard drive LED light staying on means the drive has some issues.
Enter you're bios by pressing the Delete every two seconds until the main bios menu loads. (Hope fully you'll have display on you're monitor while in the bios screen). (Instruction on how to move about in the bios is listed at the bottom of the menu.
Highlight Standard CMOS Features & press enter to open. Check if you're IDE Primary Master hard drive is listed. If yes & windows is not loading there may be a problem with the File Allocation Table, known as the FAT. Load you're windows CD into you're CD-ROM drive. Exit the bios. The system will auto restart. As the system begins to start up, begin pressing the F8 key every two seconds. This should bring up the, "Please select boot device" window. Highlight the CD-ROM by using the up/down arrow keys to the drive that has the windows CD in it & press enter. If windows does not see you're hard disk drive than there is something wrong with the drive. The drive just may have reached its end. To be 100% sure this is the case you'll need to download & create a bootable manufactures floppy disk that will check you're primary master drive. Look on the large white sticker on the drive & find its maker. Example: Seagate, Western Digital, Maxtor. ECT. Go to their web site & download their setup or tools & utilities software for creating a bootable floppy disk. Once created insert it into you're floppy drive & restart or start up the PC. The manufactures floppy software will load. (This software works out side of windows in a Dos-like mode). Instructions for testing/using will be listed on the manufactures web site. It’s very possible the floppy software can breath new life to you're drive. The bad news it will also erase you're drive. If there is a major issue that can not be repaired by the floppy disk than you will have done what good PC repair shop would have tried. Buy a new IDE drive. Let’s just hope the software can repair/fix the hard drive.

Good luck dintoe!
If you run into trouble just let me know & I'll help you through it.

Mike

No power through mb. CPU and case fans start then stop. Monitor does not come on, HD does not kick. HD access light is constant. green light in back stays on, but computer does nothing else.


make sure this hard drive is getting power

Test or replace your PSU power supply unit

one bad/faulty lead can cause a computer with lots of problems continually rebooting or failing to detect your drive

replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

hope this helps?

Sounds pretty much like a motherboard problem. The problem you describe sounds like a RAM problem, probably they are loose in the slot or not snuggled properly. However, since you seem sure its not the RAM, I would consider replacing the motherboard.

My Pc wont boot no signal in my monitor Help!


May be your in second HDD, you didn't set the jumper up. There are some more settings you will have to configure in the BIOS menu. in the BIOS, you should set the primary HDD as the master and the second(newer HDD) as the secondary. Then it should boot without any problem but if the problem persists I don't know what to do next.

A7N8X-E Deluxe Nforce2 will not POST


I had the same issue a while back. You need to reinstall windows on the new PC. Your motherboard is expecting to see a certain hard drive that has the windows boot sector on it. If it doesn't see that exact hard drive the computer will never boot... so quick fix, just reinstall windows and everything should work fine.

Boot problem


Was the operating system installed on another computer? Or a computer with different hardware? If so the drivers for the hardware are not configured properly on the HD or in the BIOS. If this is the case you should format the HD and re-install the OS.
