Hi,

If the fans power on there could be a post you are just not seeing it.

Try a different monitor
Try another video card.

List the system specs
Do the keyboard lights come on?
Do the drive lights come on ?
Are there any beeps?

hello thanks for a response I gotta wait and go back to the house and crack open the system again, but a sligh response there were no beep codes occuring, lights occured that the system was powering on, the fan begings to spin. nothing occurs like the cd drive or floppy drive don't initialize I took everything right out video, nic, ram, cpu. still no beep code what so ever just power and no post occured that's what leads me to think that it's the mobo that is fried

Yea you could be right because of the lack of beeps

Look the mobo over carefully look for bulging or leaking capacitors
Could alco be the cpu you may want to pull the hs and look it over

Sounds like your mobo went to Mobo Heaven.

Just had an ECS KS57A Pro (V5.0) die on me (second ECS I have had).

The symptoms were the same, power up, but mobo would not post and
no video.

Replaced video card, no go.

So I narrowed it down to removing the video card to see if the mobo beeps
about not having a video card. Mobos always beep due to no video card or
RAM.

I removed the RAM, and then the CPU, and same thing. Everything powers
up (CDROM, Hdisks, etc), but it just sits there, no beeps at all.


Out with the old in with the new.
