I have a computer, and it will not boot. Last night when i rebooted it and just didn't come on again. It powers on, and the cdlight blinks but no output to the monitor, nor does it sound like the hard drive is spinning. Its a fairly new workstation box, http://usa.asus.com/products/mb/socketa/a7n266-vm/overview.htm .
i am not sure exactly what to do, any help would be greatly appreciated.

First, I'd reseat RAM and make sure IDE connectors are correct and tight.

Next, I'd try setup with only PSU, MOBO, RAM, CPU, see if you get post beep. Then add components one by one.

I did the ram, and all looked good, will check the IDE connectors now. What if there is no beep? what could it be?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
