|I built this computer over 5 years ago and did not have problems with it once I finally got it running as it was my first built computer. I stopped using it after getting a laptop, but I remember having problems with it a long time ago. I do not remember specifically what was wrong but when I tried booting it up recently there is no post and no signal to the monitor. There is no post with or without ram in the motherboard.|
I know the lcd monitor is in working condition.
I have a KM400-M2 motherboard which i have read has a small speaker on the motherboard which explains why I could not find a place to put the Speaker cable from the case. However, I have never had this motherboard post since I built it, even when it was working stable.
My videocard is an ATI x1950 GT. I have tried plugging the monitor into the videocard and motherboard both receive no signal.
The power supply is 550w, lights up fine. All fans and LEDs work perfectly, hard drive and cd drive run. cd drive can open and close when pressing the button.
What other steps should can I take in isolating the problem, or any suggestion on getting this motherboard to post?
dead or fried motherboard?
