The mainboard is PTGD1-LA.
Now when the entire computer boots up, it seems the fan is going on and off. The speed is like, at minimal speed, then it maxes at extreme speed, (the noise) intermidtley every 1/2 seconds. When I had my Geforce 8600GTS in, I thought my video card screwd up.
I took my card out, now I could see my screen, but I can't even get pass the boot up screen.
When I tried to access F1 (BIOS) I couldn't do it either.
The low-high-low fan is always like that and it cannot go past the boot screen, windows not even close to loading, I can't even access BIOS and I am using my integrated video card now.
Knowing its not my Videocard, I had a suspicion for my PSU. Unfortunately, I only bought this new one in November 2007. Enermax 485W Noise Taker II. I didn't think it was the issue.
I took it to the computer store for a quick (free) analysis. The tech. popped in the AC cord and VGA cord. The computer worked fine. I was stunned. He said maybe the AC cord had problems. So I just bought an AC cord
Went home, same bleep happened again. Disbelief and knowing that the computer store already closed, I reluctantly swapped the PSU. My somewhat new Enermax for my old 300W no name brand - Pegasus. The problem is still the same.
I tried plugging in different plugs around the house. Same thing happen.
Is this motherboard problem? I took out the motherboard battery and inserted it hoping to reset it for about 5 minutes. But its still not working
I can't even access BIOS
