i've got a prbblem with my desktop.Turning it on i hear the cpu fan,the green lights flickering on the 2 rom drives and the yellow hard drive light permenantly on, but nothing else no beeps, no monitor display, no boot up,nothing. it worked fine the previous night powered off as normal, but this morning zilch.Ive checked the wirings,taken out the cards,changed ram, checked the cpu,hard drive seems to have power coming in to it, changed the power supply,nothing.It's a gigabyte board and thay say it's unusual but to try clearing cmos? Any ideas anyone?The board is appx. 2 years old.The only thing is that on a couple of times it stopped at bios on start up and said cmos was bad, checked and corrected dates as they had gone back to year 2001 for some reason . HELP PLSE
That would not stop it booting up. To at least see the screen. It is still possible that it could be a PSU problem With the 5volts test it does when it powers up that's when you get the one beep, power good signal. If you have a spare PSU try it
Cham, Sorry to hi-jack your problem, but this sounds very like the problem I posted about back in June re an Olivetti laptop, for which incidentally I got no solution that worked. This acted exactly as you have described, but at least the screen powers up to show the Bios along the top ,but no action, no beep, no nothing. I replaced the CMOS battery but still no joy.
Could someone please advise what is a CSU! which a number of you seem to agree could be the problem? xocal
