I have had this problem in the past but it had usually fixed itself. I start up and everything seems to go fine but I get no video. I recently put a stick of RAM in a new build that was getting a RAM beep code error. It turned out to be system fan failure beep followed by successful startup beep. Anyways removing the RAM meant reseating my graphics card. After I put the parts back in my computer is when I have this problem. Since I have tried w/o the graphics card. It worked the first time but not any time after that.

I have tried a few things such as changing the slots that the memory was in, reseating the graphics card a few more times, and changing PCI-E connectors.

I'm going now to try a CMOS clear. Any suggestions if that doesn't work?

Specs:

Intel MOBO 945GZ chipset
Pentium 4 3.8ghz
BFG Nvidia 7800 GT OC
Antec 550w TruePower Trio
Maxtor 300gb HDD

Thank you Anthony. I didn't see this in time but you were correct. Somehow I managed to damage a stick. There was no sign of physical damage on the stick but thats what I get for going with the cheap stuff.


And, no you don't want my CPU.
