Do you mean "no splash screen during post?'
Seems odd that it's crashing during post, but not beeping. I assume the fans spin up when you try to turn it on?
With some of those motherboards the speaker used for POST codes was removable or could get loose. Start it up purposely with no RAM in the motherboard, does it beep? It should beep if the motherboard is working properly. If it does not beep when you remove all the ram then,...something is mess up with the speaker, or your chipset is completely dead.
Okay, put the RAM back in and put everything back to "normal". Reset the CMOS/BIOS.
That is a OLD motherboard. Just curious, what graphics card are you using with it? Can your verify the graphics card in another system?
BFG 9800GT. Yeah, it's an old motherboard. It's been sitting in my buddies work since 2005. I have booted it with the RAM partially in and it beeps continuously. The light on the motherboard lights up. I'm actually going to try different RAM because I've tested the PSU, CPU, and GPU this month but haven't tested the RAM in over a year.

This thing is 7 years old. But I don't want to ditch it right away. It'd make a great HTPC, it has SPDIF built onto the motherboard, and it'd be fun to experiment with an OC'd Pentium D and some old CF 3000 series cards. Maybe even grab an Extreme Edition Edited by Pentium-David - 3/30/12 at 2:35pm
