Ive got an Asus Mobo with a Radeon 3850P Visiontek Graphics card.  The computer took a crap about 2 months ago- It stoppoed posting, beeping, etc on startup.  I shelved the computer and began using another.  Tonight, I pulled it out, unplugged everything, reseated all the Ram, video card, checked cables, power supply cords, etc, plugged it in and it posted, started up, I browsed the files-- everyting seemed to be working fine- keyboard, mouse, everything-- it was a normal computer.


I turned the computer off by shutting it down to move it and set it back on another desk.  I tried turning it on again 15 mintues later. and it's back to its old tricks-- Nothing at startup, no beeps, no video signal, nada- The fans turn on and run, but nothing else.  Any ideas what is going on here?

First thing I'd check for is a weak failing power supply. What do you currently have installed?

Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

It could be the power supply, or a bad stick of ram. If you have more than 1 stick of ram, pull all but 1 and try it in all slots, try a different stick in all slots if the first fails to work. 1 bad stick or 1 bad slot can cause this problem.


Do you receive any post fault beep code with no ram installed?

If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.
