Hi,
My PC suddenly wont boot any more - worked for about 10 minutes this morning
Homebuilt
ASUS A8N-SLI SE Mobo
AMD Athlon 4200 CPU (Socket 939)
ASUS GE-Force 7000 GPU
2 x 1gb PC2700 ECC memory
Use XP and more recently windows 7 (Use both)
I switch on and the CPU, PSU and Case fans work
The screen light goes green as if about to display BIOS. then flashes again.
Nothing else happens, no beeps. and I have to hold the power down for 4 seconds to switch off. The fan on the SLI NVIDIA chips failed about 8 months ago (I suspect this is the cause) System running fine for about 3 years apart from this - various XP rebuilds of course!!!

What I've done so far
I have tried reseating my memory using 1 stick only in every combination then exactly the same with the 2nd stick

Removed all non essentials e.g. additional PCI's HDD's etc - same
Reseated GPU - same
Emptied the case of everything CPU, heatsink, mobo. hdd's PSU everything. cleaned the dust off and reassembled. - same

As mentioned earlier, I suspect that my SLI Chip-set is fried, but before buying a new mobo, is there anything else I could try. (Unfortunately I don't have spare GPU, PSU or memory to try!!!)

Any help would be much appreciated
Thanks
Carl

Hi Carl_E :) sorry to hear you are having these issues.
Have you tried clearing the CMOS? In case you havn`t got a MB manual
here is a link to it & you will find the "how to" on page 27, this will
restore the default settings so you will need to set the time & date
again & save the new settings & exit.
Good luck & please let us know how it goes.
