I have just recently purchased a mobo from a friend of mine who had issues with one of his RAM sticks and bought a whole new computer because he thought this mobo was fried. I have had it tested and it worked fine. I decided to go ahead and buy a case and some ram to get it up and running. (CPU came with it). After installing all the wires to the case, the RAM and a video card (There are no on-board graphics) I keep getting an 8 beep Beep code saying something about the display being messed up. Since I am getting this code I have not been able to do anything with the computer because there is no display on the monitor. I have swapped out 3 different cards to no avail... I know the RAM works because it is currently in a different PC so that I at least get some use out of it and I know the video cards, at least 2 of them, are in full working order. HELP?! (I have also removed to CMOS in hopes to reset the BIOS if there was any issues from when my friend owned the board. And yes I used a static wrist band when installing)

My friend who I bought the MOBO from brought it to a shop near him and hooked it up to a monitor and PSU hooked up new RAM to it and it booted fine to their test HD. It is an AMD ASROCK motherboard I don't have exact board name with me.

They used one that they had on hand to test it and it came up with the message to boot from disk (I don't believe a HD was attached) I did however today get the video card that he had in it before but won't be able to test that until tomorrow when I am at my mothers house where I have all the cables and monitor (It is a build for her so she quits nagging me to make her PC go faster and whatnot) Basically I tried two different cards in the video slot (tried both slots) and neither card worked in either slot. Hoping third times the charm tomorrow. Any other tips if the swap doesn't seem to work?

OKAY! SO...I got the old GPU and it works! It reads the monitor and I get all 4G of RAM recognized at start-up. HOWEVER...if it's not one thing it's another. Every time I boot the PC I get the option to choose the partition on the HD (Windows xp Pro, or another xp pro partition that has never worked) This is normal, however as soon as I select the normal OS that has always worked, it shows the XP logo and the loading bar but for a brief second and before the loading bar even starts to show up to move back and forth, the computer goes to a BSOD mentioning to check all the HD connections and make sure it is configured properly etc...The HD works fine in another PC (I swapped it many times to test, I currently don't have another HD to test it with)...Doesn't make sense. I switched which SATA port on the mobo it was plugged into and after trying each one, kept it back in slot 1 where I initially had it. I wasn't able to bring up the BIOS menu at start-up even though I did hit F1, F2, and F11 many times as it told me. The only menu I can open is the HD menu asking how to boot (safe mode, normal, enable boot logging, etc). Help?! Thanks...



BUT HEY! I CAN SEE THE SCREEN! I really am not an idiot with computers so it's very stressful :)

I would dare say if you cant enter the CMOS and it blue screens on bootup the mobo is indeed bad. I would reset the CMOS to make sure, and try a different hard drive that isnt corrupted (it sounds like the windows installation has problems) to make sure, but that would be my guess.

The windows has always been partitioned in that fashion since we bought it from a small shop near where we live (the HD from the old PC) We currently have the said HD in another computer (basically if my mother didn't have a computer all holy hell would break loose so I have to keep assembling her old unit every time I take a break haha) I will try my luck with another HD and reseating the CMOS in just a little bit and let you know!

No luck, same issue is arising. I did manage to find my way into the BIOS settings and fiddled with every different setting and even went as far as putting in a CD drive for the sake of using the IDE portion of the MOBO in case it was conflicting. Still no luck and still as soon as it gets to the logo it goes to the BSOD if you want I can post the exact error code here. Thanks again.
