Hello I just put together a new system with all new components from the ground up.
mach speed motherboard,AMD 64 X2 3800+ socket 939 cpu.one stick 1024MB pc3200 [email protected],Geforce 7300LE video card,1 80G sata hard drive.
Well here is my problem. all the fans spin up the lights all come on but i get no boot screen just a looped beep. the sceen shows nothing i cant set the bios or anything. any help would be great TIA
Re: No boot on start up all fans start but no video
I had same problem!
I figured there was something wrong with my memory because that is what the manual says the constant beeps mean.
I bought a new PNY memory stick 1 gb DDR and got the same beeps when i put it in.
So being totally disappointed I tried putting the Stick in the #3 DIMM. I booted up and IT WORKED!
I have not called tech support or tried both 1 & 3 DIMM together but I will try after I set up the rest of my computer.

Re: No boot on start up all fans start but no video
First Of All AMD CPUs Are Junk! Replace It With An Intel Pentium CPU, Second If The Video Card Is Built Into The System Then Eather It Is Defective Or Settings In The BIOS AND/OR Jumpers For THE Video Card Are Set Incorrectley.
IF The Video Card Is Added To The PC Eather Same As Above Or It Is Not Compatable Unless It Is Not Seated Properley Or It Is Conflicting With Another Device On The System!

I FOUND THE SOLUTION! Hi. If you're like me you just bought one of Mach Speed's mp3/media players (I have the Trio/Eclipse Model G2, it looks like the Ipod Nano). I bought it at Big Lots for about $30. Everything works except i can't get video to play on it! Here's what i found after hours of trial and error: Seems mine (hopefully this will work for yours) will ONLY play either FLV or RM files. If you have AVI or other kinds of video files you can use this great software to convert to FLV: http://download.cnet.com/Koyote-Free-FLV-Converter/3000-2194_4-10832044.html?tag=mncol It's free and it won't put a watermark on the video...which is great 'cause all the other free ones out there will. Anyway i hope this helps.
Could be 3 things Memory or CPU or Powersupply. are you getting any beeps if so how many, how long. try taking all the memory out and powering up see if it beeps if so try to put one stick of memory in at a time and see if it will boot. if you get no beeps with memory out check powersupply some PS's have a red switch on back for current input. switch back and fourth about 20 times uning a pen and set it to the right current for you location. put ram back in see if it will boot if not its trial and error of the PS and the CPU replacement and it still could be the RAM giving false readings. yea i know sounds like a ball of fun.
Is this a brand new system? If so, maybe components not correctly seated inside, ie CPU or memory not seated correctly.
If this isn't a new system then in my experience it is most likely a power supply or motherboard issue. Hopefully power supply as this is normally the cheaper component of the two!
Hope this helps.
You are drawing too much current from the power supply with the current hungry fan.Try using a different fan that draws less power on start up. Or use a limiter to lower the input voltage draw on start up. These are usually found in fan speed controls You could also use a voltage dropping adaptor like the one use to quite fans down . They drop the 12 volt voltage to 7 volts by connecting the two voltages usually found on the power connector 12v and 5v and and adding them together getting a 7 volt output. You can also try connecting the fan directly to the power supply and avoid using the motherboard connector.The problem with this is you will not get use of the speed controling sensors used in the motherboard connections. Hope this helps you with your problem.
This is only a stab in the dark but are all your M/board fixing connected correctly Hard drive etc. One other way is to disconnect everything from M/board except for Video and memory and try to boot up if it does then connect hard drive etc one at a time rebooting each time until it will not boot that is the wrongly connected one
Remove side of case and check ALL fans are clean and free of fluff Check CPU heatsink vanes are clean ( usually fluff and dirt Build up in them ) Check power supply fan is working and is clean Vacuum out care cleaning all vent holes etc especially behind power supply when this works give us a fixya
Unplug the the dsl & any other device except the keyboard & mouse. Double check the video cable at both ends monitor & PC. Boot up system. If the system starts shut down & connect 1 device. Boot the system. OK? continue to do this. On the dsl there is a reset button. With it unpluged from power use a pen & hold in the reset for about ten seconds. Reconnect the power & reconnect the Rj45 to the PC. Boot system.
