Ok to start off 4 weeks ago my computer was working fine until that night when I came home I turned on my computer and the blue screen of death showed up. I tried fixing it. Now my computer won't post. My hard drive is working fine. My RAM is brand new. My processor which I bought is also brand new. Also my motherboard is also brand new. I tried everything from resetting the CMOS and removing everything to barebone with no beeps whats so ever. All my parts are perfectly fine but no post. help!

ATI Radeon 9600 128mb

Did you try another Power Supply Unit on your mobo.

Couple of questions:
When you got your BSOD did you have time to note the error code and what did you do when you say you tried to fix it. I am assuming it was booting with the BSOD but then stop booting after you tried to fix it.

Did you put your cmos jumper back to on, a mobo will not boot or beep if jumper still on reset cmos.

When you say you babrebone do you mean you only left Video card and one stick of ram in.

Is your internal speaker connection set in right and in the right place.

You say you have all new parts where they working before you had your BSOD or did you buy then after.

I know stupid questions but it helps us who do not have your PC in front of us.

Hi Ian Serrano :)

The hard drive has nothing to do with POST so we can ignore that for now.

For POST you need main board, processor, PSU, and ram.

"new" doesn't always mean it is good.

Try swapping ram. Use only 1 ram stick and then try the other.

When you say the parts are new, when were they new? Are they new due to trying to resolve the problem?
Make sure the processor is attached properly and no bent pins and heat sink (with thermopaste) attached.
