Question about Gigabyte GA-M61P-S3 Motherboard
I turn on my computer and I get no beeps or anything but my fans, HDD, dvd drives and LEDs come on but no signal to my monitor? I can't set up BIOS or anything cause I"m not getting any signal to the monitor... what should I do?
It was a bad 12V rail connector for my cpu from my PSU. I replaced the PSU and now it works.

I have this mobo and i got it to work and install windows xp pro, but i opened my case one time and then i had the same problem, try check your ram to make sure they are really set in there,
my solution was puttting using my 3rd and 4th slots for ram, and voila

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.

Tips for a great answer:
you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where
the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?
When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the computer is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.
Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).
Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.
your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.
the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the
chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know
the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen.
If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try
rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the
other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to
verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open
memory chip slot and try booting.
Test all leads that attach to
your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your
((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and
are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
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 could be faulty ?
one bad lead will end with a computer error a computer needs its connections continue its cycle and have an end to function properly
even something as small as an electrical extension or a
faulty fan lead can cause this problem
computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every
device and to have an end to be able work properly
a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will
fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin
type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical
extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives
need to have current go through make sure these drives are working
