MOBO: ASUS M2N MX
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 Dual core processor
RAM: 1 GB

Problem: When I start my system the display won’t come up, even though I am able to see the fan running and the power supply is intact and the green light on the motherboard also lights up the display won’t come up. Initially I thought there might be problem with Monitor but the monitor worked fine when I used with other system. I removed CMOS to remove any settings which I may have done but no luck either.

Please help.

If I require changing my MOBO which would be the best choice with reasonable price and compatible with AMD, Can I use Intel Mother Boards?

Welcome to GeekstoGo

Is the hard drive led lit

Does the monitor show any display eg the post screen.

Does the system have a motherboard speaker/sounder, not the speakers connected at the rear and if so are any bios beeps

Where does the monitor connect, on the I/O plate - onboard graphics or further down below the I/O - separate graphics card

Hi Chetan Kurvatti

If I may pitch in while colleague Macboatmaster is unable to get back to you!

No,the hard drive led is not lit (hard disk is fine)

At some point while the computer is attempting to boot up - complete the POST http://www.poweronselftest.com/ the HDD activity LED should blink, if it does not and you cannot hear it operating then there may be a problem with it, that said a failed HDD would not stop you getting a BIOS/splash screen, when you next attempt to boot up try tapping the Tab key in case the splash screen facility has been disabled.

Motherboard beeps are like 1 long beep and 2 short beeps

Depending on your brand of BIOS chip this may suggest a bad MB integrated video chip or add on card, which are you using?

Display connected to I/O board

Suggests you are using the MBs integrated video chip is that correct!

Very Likely a memory issue or at least that is the place to start

Memory issue: Beep (1 long 2 short)

A Clean the contacts of the memory stick - DO not use spirit cleaner , a SOFT eraser rubber is ideal.

B Clean the memory slots - Not likely to be the cause.

C If two memory sticks test with ONE.

D If convenient, change memory to test again

YOU may prefer to run this. - if indeed it will run


I think I would check the ram first.
Use memtest as here
The most common option is the memory so I would suggest checking it first.

If you have more than one RAM module installed, try starting computer with one RAM stick at a time.

NOTE Keep in mind, the manual check listed above is always superior to the software check, listed below. DO NOT proceed with memtest, if you can go with option A

B. If you have only one RAM stick installed...
...run memtest...

1. Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
2. Unzip downloaded memtest86+-2.11.iso.zip file.
3. Inside, you'll find memtest86+-2.11.iso file.
4. Download, and install ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/
5. Insert blank CD into your CD drive.
6. Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc
7. Click on Browse for a file... icon:

8. Locate memtest86+-2.11.iso file, and click Open button.
9. Click on ImgBurn green arrow to start burning bootable memtest86 CD:

10. Once the CD is created, boot from it, and memtest will automatically start to run. You may have to change the boot sequence in your BIOS to make it work right.

To change Boot Sequence in your BIOS


Reboot the system and at the first post screen (where it is counting up memory) start tapping the DEL button
This will enter you into the Bios\Cmos area.
Find the Advanced area and click Enter
Look for Boot Sequence or Boot Options and highlight that click Enter
Now highlight the first drive and follow the directions on the bottom of the screen on how to modify it and change it to CDrom.
Change the second drive to the C or Main Drive
Once that is done then click F10 to Save and Exit
You will prompted to enter Y to verify Save and Exit. Click Y and the system will now reboot with the new settings.

The running program will look something like this depending on the size and number of ram modules installed:

It's recommended to run 5-6 passes. Each pass contains very same 8 tests.

This will show the progress of the test. It can take a while. Be patient, or leave it running overnight.

The following image is the test results area:

The most important item here is the "errors" line. If you see ANY errors, even one, most likely, you have bad RAM.
