Windows XP SP2
ASUS M2NPV-VM mobo
2 GB Ram
AMD 64 Athlon X2
A few months ago, when we would power it on, it would run for a few minutes - up to 10 min at a time - then kick off. We'd restart a few times, but it would eventually stay on and run good. After another month, though, it wouldn't stay on. So I unplugged everything but the psu, mobo, and ram and it still wouldn't turn on.
I figured it might be the psu. I took it in to a shop and they tested it, saying that the +4 pin that connects to the motherboard was giving a weird reading. Okay, I bought a new psu, plugged it in, now it's doing the 1 long beep, 2 short beeps.
The bios is an Award Bios. I look it up and it says it's a video error. But my mobo has onboard video. Just in case, I also reseated the RAM, took out the ram - testing them one by one.
Did my mobo fry and take my old psu with it?
Is there a way I can test that to make sure?
Could it just be the onboard video card? We've had 2 monitors go out since I built it, however those monitors were used.
Need anymore detail or specs?
FYI: The video worked fine before today. Also, I inspected the capacitors on the mb and they are all flat, no bulging, no leaking.
