Empty screen ?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey need some help with fixing a old PC around the house. It has an AMD 3200+ Some old Asus motherboard with the old SLI built in connector 1gig of generic PC-3200 (I think?). Anyway the problem is that when it boots nothing comes up on the screen, the fans do start up. It also repeats a almost rhythmic beep beep beep beep beep beep. I have tried taking the battery out and that stuff. Also different memory, different power supplies. I've also noticed that the fan on the 2600xt doesn't start up. Could it be that there is not enough power going to the 2600xt. I have tried it with a TT 430watt which used to power my sig rig but with the 2600xt as the graphics.

I will inspect closer tmorrow I suppose but any suggestions.

O and btw the card is in the primary slot.

The beeping has an interval and eventually stops after about 2 or 3 rounds of beeping. It has about 6 or so beeps per thing then stops for about 4-8 seconds. It does not boot to Bios or anything it has nothing come up. I'm really beginning to think its my graphics card.

could be a memory error as well. Pretty much if anything is mis-seated the bios won't boot to protect the device thats mis-seated. I had a ram stick come loose on me once during transport and bios wouldn't even give me a display as it went off like a siren.
