AMD Phenom 8450 Tri Core Processor
MSI K9NGM4-F V2 Motherboard
2 x 1GB DDR2 SDRAM
GeForce 9600GT Graphics Card
Just replaced the Raidmax ATX12V 450W Power Supply and the CR2032 Battery on the Motherboard
Problem: No video output on startup. Everything seems to run, but I get nothin as far as video.
Story: I believe the power supply has been going out for quite awhile. After startup, the system would shutdown about 10 seconds in. After repeated starts, I could finally get it into a startup diagnostic where it would shutdown a few more times then do a system restore and would work. It slowly got worse to where a system restore wouldn't fix it and it actually shutdown in the middle of a restore and corrupted the OS. I'm not worried about the harddrive. I want to get my files off and reformat LATER. But.. My problem right now is I can't get the sytem to run even without the harddrive. I have started from scratch from nothing but a Motherboard, PSU, & CPU and slowly adding RAM, Cards, etc and no success. I have tried clearing the CMOS on the motherboard, and the CR2032 battery. My guess is the motherboard is fried, or I simply need a replacement BIOS chip.. Any other ideas??
