Q: Help! Semi new build, No post, no power to keyboard, no display

Hey everyone!semi new build(upgraded mobo), after installing everything, the pc will not post, I am not getting any power to the keyboard/mouse and the psu fan as well as other fans seem to be running kind of sluggish. Previously I had an issue where the hdd light would stay constant however that was solved with reseating the cpu a few times and resetting the cmos.specs are found here:, previous motherboard fried after plugging in earphones to front header. Could the psu have gone as well? Tested the new mobo today with known working ram and graphics card to no avail, so I have ruled those out.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Nickdangelo6, This is not a direct answer to your problem with you new build. Instead, I am going to talk about how to approach your vendor and ask for help with doing return on an item the did not work ever.Just tell the vendor that you have worked with personal computers parts before and you have friends that advice you. Tell them you were very careful when putting things together and used only compatible things.Do not mention anything that might even suggest you did anything wrong. Because you did not do anything wrong.Be polite and talk in a manner that shows you are confident and want the vendor to arrange for a way to replace the bad board.I do hope that will help you.,155953.0.html

A:New computer build powers up/stays on, but no display/post/bios

Looks like you'll have a real nice system once you get it up and running!

Couple of questions:

1. Do you have both of the power connections to the motherboard? There should be two, the 24 pin and the 4pin.
2. Do you have the power connection going to your graphics card? Most newer cards (but not all) require a 4pin molex connection from the PSU directly to the card.
3. Did you hook up the case's speaker? It would have been one of those tiny annoying to connect wires (assuming your case has a speaker - they are very small and hard to find). If your case has a speaker, this is very useful. The beep codes may tell us what is wrong.
4. Did you use the riser pins into the case's screwholes (under your motherboard) before you installed the motherboard into your case? (some cases have the riser pins pre-installed for you, some don't).
5. What speed ram are you trying to use? Do you have a different make of ram you can test in there?

Also, take a look at the LED lights on the motherboard and see what color they are both before and after you hit the power button.

First off let me say Hi and let it be known that I ve searched the web far and wide for answers to my problem but to no avail About two weeks ago my fianc ordered some computer parts in attempt to construct a new PC to replace my piece of rubbish that was hanging on to its life by a piece of tape Literally He s put computers together for a living before and he s a game developer graduate with a love for computers so he knows what he s doing but I don t He did everything I touched nothing but watched Here are the parts which arrived last Monday and Tuesday respectively XCLIO A BK Black Case CORSAIR XMS GB x GB -Pin DDR SDRAM DDR AMD Athlon X GHz AM Processor Sunbeam PSU-HUSH -US-BL W Power Supply ASUS M A -EMH HDMI AM AM AMD G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard Rosewill RCX-Z CPU Cooler Arctic Silver Ceramique Thermal Compound I used my same ol Gb harddrive which worked fine just days before I received the parts so I know that works perfectly well Everything was smoothly put together PC POST/display/etc. Custom-built gets power but no and powered up like clockwork Eager to get started installing Windows XP we hooked it up to my monitor Powered up and everything seemed good to go fans worked mobo light worked dvd drive worked led lights came on harddrive spun up but absolutely no display Custom-built PC gets power but no POST/display/etc. hit that monitor nor did we hear any beeps To diagnose we tried the following - With and without RAM - With different RAM - With videocard plugged in and with the onboard video card just plugged in - Tried removing and reseating the videocard - Tried removing and reseating the mobo onto the antistatic wrapping as a last resort mostly - Shoved a windows XP disc in to see if it d boot from that No dice - Tried hooking it up to his working monitor - Reset the CMOS bios battery and such No dice there either There s probably more but I can t think of exactly what at Custom-built PC gets power but no POST/display/etc. the moment Feel free to toss ideas However we re sending the motherboard back tomorrow and ordering a new one either at the end of this week or on Monday most likely So my question is does anybody know if our assumption is correct We re pretty sure it s the motherboard but not positive There s no other compatible machines to work with for diagnostics apart from his Alienware which is no way in hell getting taken apart for me to mess with so Another thing to note is that when plugged directly into the back of the PC no keyboard lights came on either Thanks ahead of time I m trying to find some reassurance or redirection on the matter Hopefully this matter won t stump you as much as it s stumped he and I and a few tech-savvy friends even nbsp

The Asus Uk site says you need Bios version 0705 or later to use the FX-6100 Cpu.

There have been 4 Bios versions, 0404, 0506, 0705 and the latest 0813.

So I think you are probably correct and your Bios is too old for that Cpu.
Unfortunately I don't know of any way you can find out what Bios you have now if the PC won't POST.
So I think your plan of buying a cheap compatible Cpu and then flashing the Bios is your best bet.

well i am new to this lark, but i decided to build a pc without knowing really what i was getting myself into

okay, so i haven't got it working as of yet, no power to keyboard or mouse, both usb, and no output to monitor. lights and fans all come on though? so that means there must be some power?

i have removed everything but the mobo, psu, cpu and screen/mouse.
also, have 2 processors and it doesn't work with either
the motherboard was sent back to the supplier to check for faults but it works fine apparently.
No video cards or anything like that.

I'm at a bit of a loss really

like i said i haven't even got it working yet!

help much appreciated

complete specs would be nice; it would give us an idea of what hardware you're using. it could be something as simple as an underpowered PSU or faulty RAM. make sure the processor is seated correctly and that the memory sticks are properly clipped into place.

I'm upgrading everything in my current system except for the video card, power supply and hard drive, so it's relatively a new build. I've researched and looked at countless amounts of info on the following parts, but I just need a second opinion on my selected parts. Is there something I could change that might give me more performance for the same value? Or am I buying incompatible parts? Oh, and I should mention that this is a really budget system for gaming.

NEW parts:
Bitfenix Shinobi white window
AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE
4GB Kingston HyperX Genesis
LGGH24LS70 24X SATA Lightscribe DVDRW

Old, going to be installed parts:

ASUS Radeon 5670 1gb
Coolermaster 700w eXtreme Power Plus
313GB Western Digital WDC HDD

Thanks in advance


A:Solved: Semi New Build looking okay?

I don't see any compatiblility issues there.
The memory runs at 1.65 volts,so you may need to set
that manually in the bios when you first boot it up.
The motherboard has a 275 watt voltage regulator
which should handle that processor or any compatible
Processor easily.

So after 4 years my build keeled over. I bought a HP 4-5 years ago while in college for school work. Came with a dual core athlon, 4 gb ram, and onboard graphics.

About a year after, upgraded the CPU to a phenom II x4 850 quad. Added SSD as boot drive, 16 gb g skill ripsaw ram, and a geforce 650 ti. Only thing left stock was mobo and case. Win 10 ran beautifully.

Stock mobo finally gave out. I'm assuming mobo because it started sounding funny. Them one morning I powered up and it just beeped. Reboot got to hp bios screen, froze. It was just a cycle, but could never get past bios.

So I guess I'll salvage everything and throw them into a new mobo. What's nice is this new one will support fx 8 core when I'm tired of this phenom quad.

A:Latitude E5570 - Black display, no resons to keyboard/touchpad - External display/keyboard/mouse do work

I have been spending a lot of hours in troubleshooting this week.
Diagnostics are 100% ok.
Reinstalled Windows 10 about 15 times.Installing drivers by hands, installing drives trhough the dell update management application.The issues keeps existing.
To sum the them up:- Cold boot (laptop is off) to Windows. Keyboard/Touchpad do not work. (Reboot and they work again)- Resume from sleep. Keyboard/Touchpad do not work. (Reboot and the work again)
After I got the laptop I installed 32Gb of RAM and an 512Gb Samsung 950Pro PCIE M.2 NVME drive.The drive should be support as Dell states on the product page and in the manual that PCIE with NVME is supported.
"Advanced features, like industry-leading M.2 SATA and M.2 PCIe/NVME solid state drives, provide data transfer speeds up to 4x faster over traditional hard drivers. "
In order to get the drive visible and running on PCIe I had to disable the sata controller in the BIOS.This way the drive is detected in Windows as an PCIe NVME capable drive.
Just to verify if the issues I went back to default with the delivered 256Gb M.2 sata drive and 8Gb RAM.To install Windows I had to turn the Sata controller back on.
Installed the drivers manually updated WIndows and tested.The issues do NOT occur.
Retested by installing the drivers using the Dell Update Application.The issues do NOT occur.
So I figured out that the SATA controller somehow is the guilty part for all the issues.I mean when enabled to ACHI or RAID the sleep and non working keyboard/touchpad issues do not occur.
When disable the issues DO occur.

So DELL can you please tell me how I can fix this as you state PCIe NVME drives are supported??

My wife has a Dell D420 laptop and ever since we've owned it (used purchase) the keyboard (or more specifically the mouse cursor) will occasionally jump to different locations along a line, when typing text. More recently, my wife reports that the Ctrl-___ key combination functions no longer seem to be working - although the rest of the keys on the keyboard all seem to be working fine.

Although I can purchase a replacement keyboard, and install it myself for around $15 - I wondered whether there was some other simpler initial diagnostic to explore with the keyboard, since it seems unlikely that just the Ctrl key has somehow failed. Stranger things I'm sure have happened, but this one seems a little unliklely. Any suggestions before I spend $15? Thanks

I've been driving for about 3 years, and I've always had a PC in my truck. Due to how the inverter is, my power supply always buzzes, but I have a power strip that kind of makes it buzz less? Either way. I've burnt out a power supply before, and now my new one is making crackling sounds, even when off. Am I forever doomed to buy power supplies yearly, or is there some kind of fix?

i had recently built a new computer after installing windows everything was fine except for during start-up keyboard detected no @ post screen, post/bios odd plus it'd say 'no keyboard deteced' which it wasn't detecting it because i couldnt acess bios during this once i came to the windows log in screen it was then reading the keyboard a few days ago i had a power outage during a thunderstorm and now a screen appears when turning on my computer giving me options somehwat like 'continue start up' and 'enter a set up' these are extremely general ideas odd post/bios screen, plus no keyboard detected @ post of what it says but its not the usual 'start windows normally' screen i would look but i'm currently at work since i cannot access the internet at home due to these problems lol the problem with this screen appearing is that since it is not detecting my keyboard at post i have no where else to go i've tried every usb port as well as a ps keyboard i either a need to figure out how to get past this screen or not have it appear at all or b figure out how to get it to detect my keyboard if you have any suggestions or info i'd really appreciate the help thanks

A:odd post/bios screen, plus no keyboard detected @ post

you could try removing the CMOS battery on the motherboard and using the jumper to reset the BIOS to factory defaults.

Always us a known good PS/2 keyboard. USB is OK after you have everything setup but unless you enable Legacy USB support in the BIOS the USB keyboard may not be seen by the BIOS (I've had this exact problem).

If the PS/2 keyboard is not seen when plugged into the keyboard PS/2 port move it to the PS/2 mouse port.

Hi, since the power of my Y3P with display at max birghtness does not hold very long it would like to build a powerbank for it. Since the Power Adapter is 20V 2A I wonder if I could put 4 x 5V (2A) Power Banks in serial and have 20V and enough amps to fuel the Y3P. I also ordered a cable with the right plug to connect to the Y3P. However it has 3 wires inside. When mesuaring with a meter one is ground and two deliver about 5V. How could that be? How would you wire it to power the Y3P. Does anyone has any idea?PS: I know this is gonna wipe warranty.

I recently got a new motherboard and CPU, and installed it along with everything else. When I turn on the computer, I don't get any beeps, or post. I have video though. What shows up is a screen that shows the motherboard name, but nothing else happens.
I took out the RAM and it does beep, so I doubt the motherboard is dead.
The fans and DVD Drive seem to be working fine.
Also, I changed the psu, and the cpu to see if that would fix the problem, but it didnt.
Any help on how I can make it POST?

A:First build, no POST

Check all the power supply connections to the drives and motherboard, including a 4 or 6-pin power cable to the motherboard near the CPU socket. If you see no memory count, you have real problems a corrupted bios. Reset the bios to their default settings if you can

Good evening,

Just finished building a new system and it doesn't seem to post. It starts up and runs for about 3-5 seconds and shuts down. System includes the following:

Case - Rosewill Challenger U3
PSU - Thermaltake TR2 700w
CPU - AMD Phenom II x4 965
Mobo - ASUS M5A97 EVO
RAM - G. Skill Ripjaw 16gb 4 x 4gb
HDD - Wd Caviar Black 1TB
VGA - Sapphire hd7850 2 gb ddr5
Optical drives - Lite-on 24x dvd, LG 24x dvd

To begin all green mobo lights are on. Push power button and system power up. All fans are running for about 3-5 seconds. Then red cpu led flashes and system immediately shuts down. Installed cpu correctly and used artic silver thermal paste before installing heatsink. It can't be overheating in that short a time. Could it be a DOA cpu?

A:New build won't post

Do you have the 8-pin cpu power hooked up?

I checked if it is a cpu / bios version compatibility issue, and you should be fine there. That cpu was compatible with the board's very first bios version.

i am preparing to make my first build but i am sure of what to do after i put everything together. Some sites say you install the OS and thats it, some say that you have to install drivers. My question is, after you install your OS will it automatically detect your mobo drivers or do i have to install them after the OS? If so, where do i download the drivers from.

What does your motherboard manual say in troubleshooting regarding one long beep?
Relevancy 50.74%

System comprises:

Gigabyte K8VT800
Sempron 3100
1 gig RAM
250 Seagate

ok, briefly, built system, went to fire it up, it powers up throughout, but nothing. It does not boot, and there are no beep sounds.

I put in a pc analyzer card, which, with nothing external plugged in shows 00 (award bios), but when I plug in anything such as mouse, keyboard, screen etc shows 04, which translates as "Test Memory Refresh Toggle". I have tried removing the graphics card, resetting the bios, removing batt etc.

Can anyone please shed any light on this please?

Many thanks chaps!

A:new build will not post.

possible causes:

1. motherboard short circuit -->make sure that you used standoffs and that myou only used them where there is a corresponding mounting hole on the mobo. if the mounting hole doesn't have a metal ring around it, either don't use it or use a plastic standoff instead.

2. bad or insufficient power supply unit -->what brand and model is your PSU? how many amps can it provide on the +12v rail? Cheap/generic PSUs often cannot provide stable voltages or enough power (total wattage doesn't matter, on modern systems the +12v amperage is the major factor) also, make sure that you have both the 20/24 pin ATX power connector and the 4 pin 12v ATX power connector plugged into the mobo

3. damaged, incompatible, or improperly installed RAM -->remove and re-seat with only 1 RAM stick, test each stick separate and test in each slot

3. damaged, incompatible, or improperly installed video card -->remove and re-seat video card. also you did not list your video card in your specs, what do you have?

4. damaged or defective motherboard -->unlikely cause, assume only if above components proper working order and compatibility have been verified

5. damaged or defective CPU -->unlikely cause, assume only if above components proper working order and compatibility have been verified

A:New Build no power-up: case's power supply or MB?

Well, I figured out the problem.
I am planning to re-do the older mini-itx system I have; it has gotten riddled with Trojan software for kids downloading games; it basically has been de-commissioned already.

So, I took the pico-psu power supply from that older computer, and hooked it up to the one I am making. Everything went perfectly.

So, I un-did that, removed the MB from case, disconnected the barrel-power connection from the case, unscrewed and removed the power supply that had been mounted in the case, put the pico-psu power supply back in place (I had to drill the hole for the barrel-connection out to be a little bigger since the pico-psu internal/external connection is threaded and held in place by nut with lock washer), and routed wires to be clear of cpu fan, screwed MB to stand-offs, and closed it all up.

now, everything is great. I like this linkworld case, but the power supply is worthless. I may try to get a few dollars back from the ebay vendor, to make me happy with a case that is less than what I should have gotten, but is working for me; I don't want to wait on returns, etc.

I've just built an AMD64 system using two 5400rpm hard disks from an old system. One of the hard disks makes a strange clicking noise when the PC is turned on which I hadn't noticed before, then the PC hangs during POST after it has listed the IDE devices on the screen. A Ctrl+Alt+Del is needed to get the PC to boot properly and then the PC runs normally.

Would the slow hard drive spin up times (8.5 seconds) cause the hanging at POST or is it something else?

Hi there, thanks in advance for any help.....

I am building a new system:

Gigabyte GA-7000-L
AMD Athlon 2700+
512 M Crucial DDR (2 x 256)
Antec Case

I have assembled the above components, along with a (very) old VGA card and a floppy (no HDD), to test the configuration. When I boot, POST seems to be OK (only 1 beep), and I get a correct readout on the screen (Award BIOS / AMD 2700+ / 526..... OK), but then the computer hangs. I am unable to enter BIOS.

As far as I can tell, the board is set correctly. The clock multiplier is set for Auto (necessary for this high of a CPU), I have nothing extra (except for fans) added in yet. I have reset the BIOS (both via removing the battery and shorting the "CLR_CMOS" jumber), no change.

Can anyone help me with this issue? FYI, I have no other hardware at my disposal to test individual components.

When the GPU fan spins up really loud in many cases its because the power cable(s) are not plugged into the back of the graphics card.

Make sure you have both the 20+4 pin main, and 4+4 pin CPU powers from the power supply connected to the board. I'd doubt a 750TX would be completely bricked on arrival, and you have tested pretty much everything else. So yeah, faulty mobo.

Hi, I just recently completed my first computer build. The specs are listed in my profile. I have everything hooked up (hdd, cd, vid card, etc) everything powers on when I turn on the computer (all fans operate, cd will spin, hard drive whirs), but I get nothing on my display. If I disconnect the monitor cable the display tells me to check the cable. After reconnecting the cable the screen reverts to power saving mode.

I have a connector on the mobo that says speaker (it' hooked up) but I have not heard any beeps or other sounds

According to other posts here, it could be a misconnected power conection, a ram chip issue, a bad mobo, or a cpu fan hooked to the wrong location.

My mobo has about 5 fan connections - I have 3 fans (intake, rear exhaust, cpu)

I have tried disconnecting all extraneous peripherals but cannot get the computer to post.

Do you have a floppy drive installed? The tracking down of the problem is easier (for me) with a floppy disk drive to which you can boot a Windows 98, Window ME, or DOS MS DOS disc.
If no floppy, disconnect your hard drive, and attempt a boot to a simple CD such as a Windows 98 CD.
Think of ways to get down to the most basic, fundamental setup... floppy disc or CD drive, one memory module, video graphics card, power supply connected.
Then attempt a cold boot using SAFE MODE. If you get nothing on the screen in SAFE MODE, the problem has been narrowed down to power supply, memory module, or video graphics error.
You eliminate everything you can, to start... then when you get something on the screen, diddle with it, then add a component until you make it fail again.

New build: gigabyte ga-p35-ds3l rev2, evga 8800gts 512, e8400, corsair hx620w, gskill 2-2gb ddr-800, wdigital caviar se16 640gb, ac freezer 7 pro

I am hearing that this motherboard does not support the e8400, except with the newest bios update (rev 8a). I understand it is shipping with rev 7. I have also read from reviews at newegg that the board is recognizing the chip right out of the box.

Question: will the board refuse to post if the chip is not recognized, or would it post and say "chip not recognized" or some such?

Also: I do not have another, older lga 775 chip sitting around. Is it possible to update the bios some other way? Possibly contact gigabyte and have a new bios chip sent?

And: does anybody have a good suggestion as to what to do to troubleshoot short of completely disassembling the system?

Any advice is welcome

This is the first time I've built a computer and it doesn't seem to be POSTing.

The mother board is ASUS P8Z680-V and the CPU is an i5 2500k. All cables are plugged in, including the ATX/CpU 8 pin power cable.

What happens is the motherboard powers up for a good 10 seconds, I get no beeping from the speaker, then it powers down, then it powers back up again and stays powered on until I turn it off, I get no display on the monitor or no beeps on the mobo speaker.

When it powers off after 10 seconds the CPU led lights up for a split second. The DRAM light is on though. I've tried different combinations of RAM and nothing seems to work. I've tried taking the RAM out just to test if the speaker is working and it was, I was getting 1 long beep followed by 2 short which indicates memory problems.

Ok I have my new build put together and ready to see if it will post. I am going to do that tomorrow but I had a couple questions about it first.

1. If it posts, and I pray that it will. Do I need to go into the BIOS and set that up or are the defaults good enough?

2. After that do I install the software that came with the motherboard, the video card, and then install windows xp?

3. It has a LAN Connection on the motherboard, do I still need to buy an ethernet card? I have one in this one and the LAN Connection on the motherboard. But I want to network this one too. I guess my question is do I need both the LAN Connection and ethernet card for both of them?

Thanks in advance!

Last night, I took apart and rebuilt my desktop to replace the MoBo. I went from an MSI 785GTM-E45 to an ASUS M4A88T-M.

Now, after everything is back together, it won't post. The rig turns on. LEDs turn on. Fans turn on. The board even has a green light going. There are no beeps and the 'Mem OK!' light turns on for a bit and then turns off altogether.

Now, I'm using 8GB (2x4GB) Patriot 1600 RAM, which isn't on the 'approved RAM' list in the manual. I'm not sure if my problem is that the RAM is not compatible with my board... or if it's something else.

A:Solved: New PC build, no POST, no beeps, nothing on the monitor

My initial thought would be possibly a dead power supply. If you are getting nothing with a minimal build the the likely culprits are PSU or motherboard in my opinion.

There is a guide to problem builds here, if you run through that in its entirety that should point you at the culprit. But I would certanily consider an RMA on the motherboard and/or PSU at least.

Maybe a setting in the bios?

Concidering you know PS, Mobo, hdd and others work, all I can think of is CPU. It could also be the RAM, although I find it unlikely that both sticks are faulty. What brand etc is your ram? Make sure its compatible with your motherboard (ie: Voltage).

AMD Phenom II F4 Quad core 3.0 MHZ
G-Skill 4GB DDR2
LITEON DVD RW (Redeployed from an older non-64 bit machine)

When I save and exit BIOS, it goes into a loop of restarting with the startup beep, then reads "Verifying DMI data..." then restarts.

I am unable to get to a prompt for booting the Vista disk. I did get to a prompt by disconnecting the harddrive, but when Windows came up it when to a blank blue cloud screen.

I reconnected the harddrive and get the same loop restart result.

I have my Windows 8.1 setup so the display turns off in 1 minute.

I have the power options setup so that the power switch shuts the system down.

But it doesn't. If the screen is off and I press the power switch on my PC the screen comes back on. I then need to press the power switch a second time for the computer to power down.

Is there anyway to configure Windows 8.1 so that the power switch does not turn the display back on, but just immediately shuts the system down?

You don't have to do that.
When the display is turned off and when you press any key on the laptop, it will bring the display back on.

When I plug in my graphics card my ram and my CPU and power the whole thing with my PSU I get nothing on my Display POST/No No monitor but I do get the CPU fan to spin and the graphics card fan to spin and the power LED comes on the board No POST/No Display Here s my hardware ASUS M A TDX No POST/No Display Evo Athlon II X XFX Radeon HD GSKILL DDR Ripjaws PC and Antec TP- W Here s what I did to troubleshoot I took the motherboard out of the case and placed it on the motherboard box so there would be no short circuiting I unplugged my Hardrive and my Optical drive for simplification I had my friend bring his computer and I tested my RAM and my graphics card and my power-supply on his computer and his computer booted up fine So I think that means that I ve narrowed it down to the motherboard or the CPU I tried clearing the CMOS on the mother board and moving the RAM around to different ports to see if one of the ports is not working I guess I still don t know if the BIOS is updated for my CPU but I was insured that it was when I called ASUS It puzzles me as to why the CPU fan would still spin if the motherboard is broken but I guess it could I m posting on this forum because from the research I did online I haven t heard any problems about the CPU being bad but many about this motherboard being bad So is there any other tests I can try on my mobo before I RMA it PS I already went over the steps for beginners to do if the computer does not POST nbsp

A:No POST/No Display

You seem to have narrowed it down fairly well to the CPU or Motherboard. The only tests I would even bother with would be a visual check of the board to see if it is in any way damaged or if any capacitors have blown (they will look bulged or discoloured).

The only other thing would be to test your CPU in a known good board or a known good CPU in your board to see if it makes any difference.

Other than that, if they are new and still under guarantee I would contact the supplier and RMA the board and CPU if you can not confirm which is at fault.

Hello,I ordered the P50 about 10 days ago, but I can't stop feeling a little uneasy because a lot of people seem unhappy with the FHD display. Most people complain that the color space is atrocious, some say the screen is not bright enough while others say the screen brightness is uneven distributed creating visible vignettes. I am coming from a Lenovo v570 which was released in 2011/2012 and has a 720p TN display. I am hoping that the display of the P50 is as good if not better than that of the v570. So, I am wondering if it is possible for owners of the P50 to post images of the display of the P50 and it'll be even better if there's another laptop by its side for comparison.Thanks.

clearly you are very experienced so can only suggest the mobo has shorted out or you fried it with static ( unlikely)

only other things are faulty psu

could try a total rebuild just remove all connectors from mobo and recheck it that way, only fit 1 HDD noi graphics no cd/rom keep trying to boot

Hey, I looked up the Intel Bios Beep Codes, located here, nothing seems to show for 1short, pause, 1 long... So it is very confusing as to what your problem may be.

The 3 beeps seem to be a RAM issue, take out both sticks, make sure all the contacts on the modules are good (not bent, scratched) try each stick seperately in each and every slot on the board. You might be best off to do a bench test. Take the board out of the tower, hopefully you still have the static bag from the Motherboard box, place the board on a static bag and something semi soft(usually foam comes with the boards too) and test the board with Just the Video Card, RAM, Processor. If it posts, add components. if it all works together outside of the case, but it back in, see if it works.

If it doesnt seem to work when in the case but works outside, then its being shorted, you will probably need some rubber stoppers or something to stop the screws from touching the board.

If you can't seems to get it to work problem, I suggest calling Intel and doing an RMA on the board...

I saw this same question was posted before but expired unanswered......trying again. Yahoo IM messages won't show in post box. I can see what I type but when I hit disappears. Can see my contact is typing but those messages don't post either. Have reinstalled twice, checked font color and all settings within IM r/t "viewing, showing etc." It has worked fine for a couple of years then one day...nothing. In the latest version that I just downloaded......I can see a portion of the message in the little screen that pops up at the bottom of the screen to let you know someone is sending a message.....but nothing in the main post box. Any ideas welcome.

Oh, my... Did I finally get burned with my latest E-bay item? Got a "slightly" used MSI board (850 Pro5) with a P4 but when I power it up I hear four second long continuous beeps with no display. This happens with or without any memory. Have I gotten some bad parts or is there something else I might be doing wrong? Not a clue.

Have you read and followed the guide at the top of the forum?

Next I highly doubt ocz is approved ram for an intel board. Did you check to see that you were using memory on the approved list?

"Hi I have a Gateway PIII running Windows XP Pro. Last weekend I was setting up a home network and now when I turn it on the display goes black just after the windows splash screen disappears. Does anyone has any suggestions on how to fix this?"

I got a response asking me if I could get into safe mode. I answered yes but I was wrong. Just after the splash screen my display goes black and I can get anything to respond.

When the computer boots up, my monitor isn't receiving any sort of signal. The graphics card I am using works on another computer. I've also tried on the onboard graphics card and it doesn't seem to work either. The monitor is working fine. I don't believe windows is booting up either. And I don't think it's performing a POST either.

The computer was running fine, until I started to experience a couple of crashes, now I can't get it to boot into windows or have any sot of output to the monitor.

What I've concluded\done:
The processor is working.
The graphics card is working
I've tried resetting the CMOS.
Tried onboard graphics device
removed harddrive(same results)
Tried several RAM stick.
Fans run, CD Drive opens\closes on request.

I came home today to find my computer frozen, dont know why, but i restarted the comp. When i booted it up nothing showed on the screen, it was blank, and there were 2 post beeps. I checked to see if it was the agp slot that was broken by puttin a different card in, but it wasnt, the card worked. So i put my original card back in Geforce 2 MX400 AGP, and it didnt work, i fooled around with it for 30 minutes or so, and nothing seems to be working, did i ruin this card? i sure hope not

A:No Display, 2 post beeps...

you didn't ruin the card.

components die. its happens..... you are lucky it was not your CPU or mobo....

I am actually happy for you it was not your mobo.....

remove it like a cancerous cell and replace it!
