Question about AMD MB TUL | AX480A-GF XPRESS200P RT Motherboard
I bulit a pc with the Ax480a xpress200 motherboard, AMD 64 3200 1.8 processor, 2 256mb sticks of GeIL ultra series 184 pin DDR SDRAM DDR400(PC 3200). The pc ran fine for 3 months but now has an issue during boot up. Everything is fine in the cmos, all of the hardware, hd an cd drive and memory is recognized. I hear one beep after it starts to boot up, it goes through the wake up to where it should start loading windows but all I get is a blank screen with a flashing cursor. Please help as I have disconnected everything and reconnected to ensure nothing was loose or not seated properly. I then tried to boot from the cd with the windows xp cd and it started to boot. Windows displays that is checking my systems hardware settings and then goes to a blank screen. All of the voltages are within spec, the cpu temp is fine and the fan speed is 3200rpm. I am lost as to what to try next.
If u haven't overclocked it yet (goes easy to 2.4 to 2.6 some more, don;t go over 1.7V though) then you should single out the problem part by booting with: 1) try 1 memory stick only 2) safe mode 3) only necessary cards, possibly gr.card only now as we all know the quality of Microsofts products, try installing a fresh copy of your legal windows OS on any other disk or even the same with the separate installation option if you must. Simply, there is no better way to find the problem. Windows xp is rather funny lately with its updates... Good luck m8
