Graphics fault or Bad Memory

BIOS is a Phoenix not an Awar

  woodchip 20:35 14 Aug 10

BIOS is the same

  skitzer 20:36 14 Aug 10

BIOS is a Phoenix not Award does that make a difference and why is my CPU info not displayed anymore?

  woodchip 20:41 14 Aug 10

Yes both Bios are the same only different name. Award makes them. cpu will not show if you get a blank screen. that will be a graphics fault

I have tried removing/replacing all the ram and rebooting after each one replaced each one removed/replaced was acknowledged on the info page. I have also refitted hard drive and all other hardware with no change.
