Having problems getting a friends computer working. It boots up, no bios beeps, the monitor is getting a signal but the power light gives the standby blink. I'm thinking it's the on board video but before I order a pci vid card to install I want to make sure it's the problem. Also the cr9f1 or cr9f4(can't tell if it's a 1 or 4) light is blinking but I can't find what this means because I don't have the original manual and the online ones don't have any info on it.
Try resetting your bios.. reset it to system defaults.. check all connections properly.. pc to monitor..etc etc.. if you mean no error code by "no bios beeps" then it's okay.. if you mean even the regular single beep after post is not heard than chances are high that your video card has some problem.

add a external (slot) card for video temp, and see if signal comes up, and boots to Bios, it might have the onboard video disabled if so you should be able to enable it and then pull video card and check the MOBO
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.
If all you have done is upgrade the memory, take out one stick of memory and see if the computer will start up. If it acts the same way it has been acting, take out the other stick of memory and put the first stick of memory back in. You could have a bad stick of memory. Does the computer make any beeping noises when you try to start it? Those beeps are the BIOS way of telling you there is a problem. One BIOS beep means the system is starting if you have more than one beep, there could be a problem, the number of beeps along with the brand of BIOS will give you a clue as to what the problem is. Once you know the number of beeps and the brand of BIOS you can search the Internet for what the problem might be. Your monitor showing "NO SIGNAL INPUT" is its way of saying "I'm ok but something else is wrong".
Before trying anything, try another monitor. Or try you're monitor on another system. Swap the video cable with another. (This is a must try). The reason it’s a must try is because you hear the drive run, the fan's are running & the LED's are flashing. Once you are sure both are good than reset the bios. (You typed, D845SVR as you're board). There is no such Intel MB. I think you meant to type, D845GVSR. Unplug the power cord from the PC, open you’re case & touch any bare metal on the inside of the case surface before touching the mother board. Please go to page 10 in you're manual. Make sure letter "D", the 12 V power connector is secure. Remove & re-seat it. Go to page 37 for instructions if you need a little help resetting the bios jumper. Move the jumper to pins 2 & 3 for 15 seconds. Than move back to default, pins 1 & 2. The link listed below is Intel's main web site for the MB D845SVR. http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D845GVSR/ If you no longer have you're manual, you can download it at the link above. By resetting the bios, you are manually changing the bios to its default settings. Plug the power cord back in. Try booting the system. You should get display. If you do not, than you're onboard (Integrated graphics), is most likely bad. A work around would be to add a PCI video card. The only other option left that I can think of is, it is possible that the CPU thermal grease between the CPU & heat-sink has dried. This will & can cause you're CPU to heat up. It may have overheated the CPU. PC repair is trial & error. Cleaning & replacing the thermal grease may allow you're system to function. Here are a few PCI graphics cards you could try if you wish to buy. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=319&name=PCI-Video-Cards Once a PCI video card has been added, the bios will use the PCI card without you needing to make a change in the bios.
Does the computer beep, to tell of booting progress?
Is the new MoBo really new? What about the video card?
Try different RAM. Bad RAM will not let a computer boot.
Try booting the MoBo out of the case: lay it out on wooden surface and plug in power supply and monitor, then turn on. Listen for beeps, HDD cranks. Also watch the screen.
Come back after doing these checks so we can isolate the problem.
if you are only getting a flashing line in the left corner of your monitor you may have a damaged cmos chip, because you should be able to atleast get into the bios, unless you have faulty memory, so if you have two sticks fitted remove one and try again, ensuring you use the correct memory slot.
