Hi Everyone,

I have two problems and might relate to each other. I have a Radeon 9000 on a ABIT BX on a KT7A Raid with 256 meg of RAM using W98.

Every time I start my computer it boots but nothing in on the monitor. Solutions to get this working, I have to reset. As soon as I know its booting up again. I power off the pc and wait 15 sec (I can wait hours or days). I turn the pc back on and it is fine. I can reboot with no video problems. I just cannot do a shut down or the same problem. I can get in the BIOS when I turn on the PC and see the screen.

I think its something to do with the motherboard. When I do the steps to get my PC to work I hear a single beep. If I do not hear it I know I will not see anything.

My pc works fine most of the time. I have one other problem when the pc finally is booted and running. My keyboard will lock up. Mine mouse works and I can shut down or open anything. I cannot use the keyboard. I try to type in notepad, MS Word, Internet or rename a file. Nothing will work.

Welcome cerpher <_<

Sounds like it could be a bad motherboard, but a bad, or under-powered power supply may also cause these errors.
