I have an AsRock K7S41GX motherboard about 1 yr old. Recently, I turned the system on (XP - Pro w/AMD Athlon 333/266 768Mb RAM, 80Gb HD) and received no POST or anything else (well, the fan on the chip did run). I attempted to run the hard drive on another working computer but got nothing but a white line at the bottom of the screen. If I slave the drive I can read it. My question is do I need another motherboard AND hard drive or just one or the other?

I would determine if the MB is still under warranty, if so contact the manufacture for assistance for they will determine if the MB is bad and send you a new one.

If the MB is not covered under warranty, try to reset the CMOS and see if it will boot, after resetting the CMOS it will be necessary to enter the BIOS and reset your settings, resetting the CMOS will set the BIOS in fault safe mode.

Your MB Manual should explain how to reset the CMOS.

River Rat, Thanks for suggestions but have already tried them with no success. The makers of the board told me to get with the reseller since the board is now out of warranty and the reseller has quit the business to repair cars! (go figure) lol. Resetting the CMOS does nothing to help the board. It just sits there with the fan going on the processor. Anymore suggestions would be appreciated before I give up the cash for another board and hard drive.

Start with taking all the hardware loose, PCI cards, everything except the monitor.
Yep even the keyboard & mouse. If it will boot up then start plugging things in one at time till the problem occurs.
