Clear the cmos.


take the little battery out on the motherboard for 30 seconds. then see if it posts.



future notice: when doing anything inside the computer... TURN IT OFF

Your post is confusing. I take it you plugged in a molex to your video card, then unplugged the molex while the computer was still running? Did I get this right?

Well chances are you killed your video card. Try to borrow one from someone or buy a cheap $7 one off ebay. Since your fans spin, I'd say you're probably ok other than the video card. Only thing I'd worry about is if you happened to kill the PCI-E slot (read a few people who have done that).

yes but it was:

1. had original working Video Card in AGP Slot

2. just wanted to make sure the Fan was spinning on new Video Card so just plugged in the molex? and my speakers made a noise like when i turn the system on and off like a mini power surge?

3. i have four video cards
1 i know is dead and replaced
2 the one in the system RZ44G
3 new one with a molex?...never seen this on a Video Card
4 the Video Card on the Machine i'm typing on RZ22G that was upgraded when 1 went down

*sighs*

nope, tried leaving battery out, plugging in 4th Video Card, taking out all Ram except one stick 512MB, unplug everything but 1 Hard Drive, don't get any sound of Windows loading

well at least i know the 2 of 4 Video Cards work...1 was already dead and the one i want to install is the one with the 4 pin molex and what i read in the FAQ, its not recommended to connect it?

Motherboard might have bit the dust. Got another one, or another PSU to test?

lol yeah master chief, I love halo. Halo 1 and 2 mostly.
