Computer will not boot up. Press power button to turn on, fans whirl up to full speed, no power/hd lights, no screen display.

This sounds like a motherboard issue, but first swap out the ram one at a time, next remove the hard drive, if no change remove the video graphics card, "if detachable" disconnect any hardware that may load down the motherboard including the dvd driver, if after everything still no change the motherboard will need to be replaced.

Sir i have msi n1996 no display in this mb what to do

The monitor could be faulty, try connecting a different monitor to see if you get a Windows image.
Next check the BIOS setting, if the video card is built-in on the motherboard, check the video settings.
Next the on-board video may have a video RAM problem, re-seat the RAM modules, the video card used part of the RAM memory (ie. shared memory).
Next if the video card is faulty, get or borrow a AGP video card and insert it into the AGP slot on the motherboard and connect your monitor to this video card then boot up the computer.
Each of these steps should identify and fix your video problem.
If you need further assistance, please leave me a comment together with any error messages.

You have to install all the mobo drivers first.

Ensure the CMOS is set to boot off HDD first.

If still a problem will most likely be faulty mobo.

Check your connection again. Its seating should be good or did you happen to touch its edge connector (Ram, video, PCI card)? Most likely its Ram card is making it not to boot.

Memory Issues with P5GL - MX

Some motherboards require that you install the memory in matched pairs. That could explain why they won't work together.

When you put the 1 GB in alone, what slot did you put it in?
I would suggest the blue A1 slot (closest to the CPU).

It may be that you have a bad memory module.
You could try the Windows Memory Diagnostic:

No display at post

There are a few things that can cause no display on the monitor.
That single beep means POST = Power On Self Test. Post has tested everything on you're board to be good.
The cable between video card & monitor may be bad or not connected correctly (Swap out the cable as last resort).
2. You're monitor is defective, try swapping it with known working monitor.
3. You're video card is not functioning.
Lastly, when you reset the system cmos/bios everything went back to default. This means you're bios is now using the onboard PCI video graphics. Remove you're radeon 9600 video card. Try booting the system. You should see display again. The only way to test you're radeon would be to boot to the bios & set bios to boot using the AGP radeon. You need to change Init Display First to AGP & not PCI. If you loose video than you know you're AGP card is bad. Reset the cmos/bios before adding another AGP card or you will not get display. This setting is on pg 3-5. Integrated Peripherals. If you need you're manual you can download it from this link:

Good Luck!
