    Thank you soo much :-)

    Here is comp info for you (to the best of my knowledge)!

    'HIPER' Power supply (220-240V) : HPU-4S425-PK 425 watts (NEW)

    'GIGABYTE' Motherboard : GA-K8NS Pro (AMD Athlon 64 processor - socket 754)

    'SEAGATE' Hard Drive : BARRACUDA 7200.10 250 Gbytes (only put into the machine 6 monts ago)


    'NVIDIA' Graphics - FX5500 - TD256

    Sorry, i couldn't see much on the Graphics card, so i hope the info is ok!?

    I have disconnected all of the power supply leads again and tried just connecting the main power cable on the motherboard and also the lead for the led's on the front of the machine. For a couple of seconds, the fan on the CPU started spinning, but then just as quickly stopped again! I have tried again a few times and nothing is happening again, only the flashing lights on the keyboard!! Don't know if this will help at all? I have taken off some of the leads to the Motherboard (extra USB ports), so the only things connected to the motherboard now are: the Hard Drive(connected by the Red 'SATA' cable), 2 DVD's and 1 Floppy Drive and the Power switch and LED's for the front of the tower. PCI Slots: Modem (HP156A3) and the Graphics card.

    I hope this information helps and Thank You again for helping me :-)

Yes but there is a error then somewhere, because the keyboard is displaying it as being a error I would assume.

now is it possible for you to take a picture inside you computer for me? just would like a nice picture to help you out a bit and if possible what you have in it,

power supply name ect
motherboard name ect
hard drive name ect
Ram installed
video card name and model

and maybe we can get the thing going quicker by cutting out a few steps.

I will help ya till it works.

    ok lets try this.

    1. Make sure all your wire connections inside you computer are tight and non of the wires are frayed or bent really bad.

    2. remove the video card, make sure that there is the 4 and 8x notches on the card if its a 2x card then its not supported by this motherboard.

    3. Refer to page 96 of you manual to make sure that your Fpanel is properly installed correctly. (you can remove all the wires from this for testing. and only have the pwr cable plugged into the board to make sure you have it in the right pins.) if you need the manual please go the following link. Click Here

    4. There is a ram LED on the right hand side of the motherboard this should be on while the computer is on if there is no power on that the the motherboard needs to be getting power. And currently is not receiveing power.

    5. There is also a small LED beside the video card as well when the video card is installed go 1/3 of the width of the card and look on the motherboard and it should be right there.

    • Turn off the power and unplug the AC power cable, then remove allof the add-on cards and cables from motherboard.

    • Please make sure all jumper settings (such as CPU system bus

      speed, frequency ratio, voltage and etc) are set properly.

    • Check if the CPU cooling fan attached to CPU properly. ls

      CPU cooling fan power connected to CPU_FAN


    • Check if the memory install properly into the DIMM slot.

    • Insert the VGA card. Then plug in ATX power cable and

      turn on the system.

    1. Is memory LED on and CPU fan running? if you said no then

      The problem could be caused by power s u p p l y , C P U ,

      memory or CPU/memory socket itself.

    2. Check if there is display. if nothing there then Perhaps your VGA card / VGA slot or monitor is defective.

    3. Turn off the system and re-connect the IDE cable. Check

      if the system can reboot successfully.

    I hopeing to see inside your computer cause maybe just out of a shot in the dark I might be able to notice something out of the norm.

    Lets start with these steps and we will from there.

    let me know how the progress goes, nice power supply but ya if you can take the video card and shoot me the model ect on it then I can further find out more for you.

It does not complete post

Its probably caused by the RAM, have it checked. If you can do it yourself, clean the RAM as shown in the image below:
Install it back to the computer and turn it on. If problems persist try another RAM, it may already need replacement.

In case your computer has 2 RAMS installed, clean them both. To test if there is a busted one, install the one then turn on the PC, if it works shut down the PC. Then try the other one, if it works too then it just needs some cleaning. But if not, one of them needs replacement. You can still use your computer with 1 RAM, just don't expect the same performance as having two RAM.

Please reply if this has helped you. Thanks.

CPU not boot up

First of all what exactly do you mean by "changed the CPU"? If its the processor? Is only the display not working, since you have said that the fan runs, it means the PC is starting. Check the Keyboard & mouse PS2 jacks. If there is any bent pins in the jacks? If so gently straighten with a pair of tweezers. Also try using a working Keyboard & Mouse from any other PC. If that still does not work, do you see the led lighting up on the MB? Does the MB make beeping sounds? How many? ALso mention the processor you have so that we may be able to help...............sodeep

i would check the connector from the psu to the motherboard where it plugs in and check that there isnt any plastic melted socket on the terminals as it may be shorting on the motherboard and the fan is drawing the fumes out making look as if its the power supply
