I'm trying to revive my old PC having the following specs. incl. some spare parts.
Mobo: ASUS P4V8X-X
PSU: Sum-Vision 500W or I-CHIA 300W
Proc: Intel P4 2.8GHz
RAM: 512MB x1 & 1024MB x1, both PC3200
HDD: Samsung 120GB
GPU: Gainward GF 7600GT or ATI Radeon 9250
OS: Win XP Home and Vista Buisness (dual boot)
Actually the mobo has a problem reading the DIMM sticks. ie form 3 slots it only reads from one of them and if and only if there is a stick inserted in the other otherwise it will fail at POST. Having said that, the actual problem is related to the video out. When I boot in either OS after some time eg 15mins (and this is not constant) the monitor shows no signal but the PC still respond (eg num lock works, shut down works, ...). I've tried to change the PSU and GPU but still no luck. Now while it was booting in XP it showed the fatal error which I've attached. I rebooted and the fatal error didn't show up but the no signal problem is still there.
I think that the mobo is out of business The last step which I'm considering is to update the BIOS.
Thanks in advance
