Still having a display challenge...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok, I've RAMed my mobo AND gpu so those are out of the question.

I turn the computer on and it flashes up the ASUS AI splash screen but then quickly removes it from the display, like its not up there as long as it normally is.

I can get into the BIOS screen but it does the same thing. I can see the main screen of the bios setup area, but it will disappear off the display and go black just like when its booting. I don't understand what this could be.

Bad PSU? Bad CPU? Bad RAM? (although I tested it with memtest not too long ago) Something with the case shorting something out (power/reset switch or HD activity light or something else)

I dont know what it is, but I would like to have a stable computer that works when I need it to.

BTW, nothing is overclocked so don't say its an unstable overclock. And this is definately a hardware issue of some sorts. It happens with XP and Linux.

try resetting the cmos jumper. if that dont work, check to make sure everything is securely connected. all i can think of for now.

if something shorted you might wanna check your wires. you might have some faulty wiring.

This is probably not even whats wrong with it, but if you have an extra monitor, you could give that a go. Maybe the monitor is just shutting off on you? It's worth a shot.

What kind of monitor is it? If it is an LCD monitor, it may be dying. Try either plugging another monitor to your setup or plugging your monitor to another setup to test it out.

Well I decided to try something easy. I disconnected the front panel HD light, power and reset switches, along with the speaker. Fired right up. So its one of those 4 items. I guess that gives me an excuse to go get that LianLi afterall
