Another blue screen victim

I too have had a blue screen occurence. I think (although I'm not sure) it mentioned something about bios. I had added some memory a few weeks ago after a recommendation from here and it had worked perfectly well.

My problem is that after the initial blue screen, I cannot bring anything up at all on the screen when I reboot so I cannot try any F keys, system restore, booting from a floppy or anything. The fan seems to be working okay. The monitor works using my very first PC which I've kept. The hard drive can also be viewed in Dos in first PC (First PC is FAT 16, Second is FAT 32)

If anyone can give any suggestions or help, I would be grateful.

Thanks

Lets both keep an eye on each others posts, lol.

I still don't know what caused the failure, and I'm still annoyed my backups were no good, in fact, I've just deleted the discs.

Good idea Steve. I didn't want to hijack your thread so posted a fresh one.

A thought I have just had is could my problem be a motherboard or processor failure? In which case, should I have heard some beeps? (which I haven't btw)

REboot keep tapping F8 as it boots, can you get to safe mode?

I've not had any more replies to my thread, but it was suggested that the cpu fan could be a fault, but I only dusted it a few weeks ago, with compressed air, as for what Fruit Bat /\0/\ has suggested, I don't get that option whichever "f" key I press.

RE Fruitbat suggestion - I still cannot get anything to appear on the screen.

If no beeps and fans are running ok and HDD led is flickering then

1. remove refit graphics card

2. remover refit memory or try with just one stick of memory at a time.
