A week ago I had a problem, XP just didn't see my SATA raid harddisks.
Fixed that problem by installing the drivers on reinstalling XP.
However, some days later, in the morning the PC was fine, but when I got home from work, it did not boot.
The symptoms are:
Everything seems to work, all fans are going, the cd-rom drives work too.
No display what soever and no beeps either.
Here's what I've done in the meantime:
I did read the top topic in here, on what to do with new builds.
I did check the memory, put new memory in, same thing.
I checked all cables, same thing. Unplugged them, put them back, same thing
Got the processor out, put it back, same thing.
Checked the monitor , same thing.
Finally I bought a new case and new motherboard:
ASUS P4p800E deluxe
put everything in there: same thing.
The last action was: take everything out, and put a piece of cardboard underneath the motherboard. Plugged a drive back, the vga card, and the keyboard, nothing else, still same thing.
I can hear everything working, I just don't seem to get any display whatsoever.
(Or bleeps for that matter...I mean, even bleeps would tell me something)
Anyone has any ideas? Only thing I can't check is the processor.
Don't have any other system the thing fits in, and I don't want to go out and buy a new processor, just because I think it's faulty.
Rest of the config:
2x512 Mb memory
2x160 Gb harddisks, Seagate, SATA
Pentium 4 processor
Help please! Am getting pretty desperate.
