Does your moniter click as though it had recieved signal?

Make sure that your video card is installed correctly.
Check all of the moniter's cables, and make sure they are plugged in (in the CPU, the wall, and the back of the monitor)

Does your computer beep at all?

Can you hear the drives spinning?

Well, it appears to be a problem with your monitor, or the video card.

There is no hardware failure though, outherwise your computer would beep on startup.

Because the drives spin, tells me that everything else is in working order.


Make sure the video card is seated right, and that all cables are connected as they should be.

Could be that your motherboard isn't compatible with the processor or maybe you haven't got enough power to start the computer with it.

Well, it is most likely something with your motherboard. There a few things you can do. First, find out if it actually support the Intel Celeron series. Sometimes, matching sockets will not work without a BIOS update, try this. Now, this may be a problem because being it is a socket 370 system the company has discontinued making it and possibly the support too, there goes your hope of a BIOS update. You should still try, though.

The 6AIV supports Socket 370 Intel® -Pentium 3 100/133MHz FSB, u-ATX, VIA PLE133 + VT8231


(2) PC100/133 SDRAM DIMMs (1GB)
(3) PCI (1) ACR (1) PCNR
Video: Embedded graphics
Audio: AC'97 CODEC
Features: ATA100, USB1.1

The video is onboard - make sure it is enabled in the bios and the aperature for its shared ram is set correctly.

If you're running XP or Win2k get drivers here:

Not sure if it supports celeron though - it specifies pentium 3

Of course - make sure everything is connected to the motherboard in the proper places.

Also only supports USB 1.1, not USB2
