Nothing shows on monitor when turning on - Page 2

post #11 of 14
try with the ram in each slot

if your using the hdmi, make sure the tv is on the correct input

also, hook up a pc speaker, makes troubleshooting much easier


looks like the board has 3+1power phase, i wouldnt use a 125w cpu in it
check for blown up parts

unplug the 4pin power plug near the cpu and see if it will power on

I don't want to steal your thread but I'm actually having the exact same problem with my main computer!

blank screen on bootup. everything powers. I was told it was the PSU most likely, going to replace it soon.

Correct, I've seen this with a MB battery that is 2-3 years old.

Another oddity that many miss. The CMOS (BIOS) chip creeps out of the socket enough to cause opens in some of the pins and the data needed to BOOT is not transferred properly.
Press the CMOS chip back into the socket. I've seen this issue with earlier video cards too!

Thanks for explaining exactly how that causes the problem, All I know is that i was told to replace it or refit it and it worked again.
