Ok! Jackbomb & aegis1
Here is the deal, I have been working on this problem for
some time now. I'll try to give the short story.
Yes I did perform a Bench test first. Never got the MoBo in
PSU = Raid max 500w
MoBo = ESC Elitegroup Nforce-570slit-A
Graphics = GeForce 9400GT (PCIE)
Processor = Intel core2 duo E4300
Monitor = Compaq V700
Mem = 1 Gig (Crucial) DDR2 PC2 5300
Done the Bench test with these items and as Jackbomb
mentioned the turning on of the system gives the CRT
enough jolt to trick the monitor for a couple or seconds
then powers down.
Thouhgt it was the graphics card:
I have a Gateway PC(503GR) Intel Pent 4. Used the one
PCIE slot in this unit to test the Graphics card. It worked
fine with he GateWay.
Maybe it's the Processor:
Took the "working" pent 4 Processor out of the GateWay &
into the ECS MoBo(which does support Pent 4), Same thing
Happen, CRT monitor powers up-3 secs- powers down.
Gotta be the MoBo:
Now have an Asus P5QL MoBo, Supports Intel Core2, and
DDR2 Mem. Tried the bench test and guess what?, same
thing. CRT monitor powers up, then powers down.
Hope this clarifies my dilemma. If in any of this you guys
see where I went wrong...do tell.
