Hi all,

 

I just updated a computer and I'm having an issue with no video.  It's just a black screen, my monitor doesn't say "So signal found", etc,.

 

Specs:

 

CPU: Q8200 2.833GHz

RAM: 4GB 1333mhz

Mobo: G41M-VS3 R2.0

Hard drive: WD 1TB

PSU: Thermaltake 500 watt

Graphics card: Ati Radeon HD5570

 

So far I've tried:

 

Taking out all components except the necessary ones.  It beeps until I put the RAM in.  I've tested the PSU.  It works fine.  I've tested the RAM in another computer, and it works.  I took the graphics card out and attached the cord to a different monitor.  I've tried different monitors, and different cords - to no avail.  CPU pins aren't bent.  I've tried a CMOS reset and it doesn't help.

 

I'm honestly out of ideas.  It may be the motherboard, but I'm hoping someone has some other suggestions.

Maybe 10 minutes isn't long enough but the diags you did point to the MOBO.

I didn't take the time to search stats on your mainboard, and I'm not sure from your post if you did this already, but IF you have integrated video, remove the card and try to boot. If no video in that case, probably your mainboard is dead.

[EDIT AFTERTHOUGHT]:
Your post: " It beeps until I put the RAM in."
Make sure that the type of RAM you are using will work in that (older) mainboard. I have seen boards get fussy and will not respond to certain makes of RAM. The manufacturer should post that information somewhere.

Thank you for replying.  I've looked it up and the RAM is compatible.
