    The mobo LED are on, fan is running but getting no signal to monitor. I've tested the video card in another pc and confirmed working. The only time the mobo beeps is when There's only one ram installed.

    Mobo is: Intel D850MD atx socket 478
    Cpu : P4 SL6GQ northwood
    Ram : Samsung Rambus 256mb (four installed)
    Power : Zumax 115v/230v 10A/5A 60/50Hz
    Video : Sapphire RADEON 9250 128mb 64-bit, AGP 4X (1.5v) universal


    The CPU was salvage from a Dell mobo that no longer show video, just as it is now, simply power up then nothing.
    Shouldn't there be beep codes if it's a failed cpu?

    Unfortunately, I don't have another 478 CPU.

    I tried doing a minimum start-up with only the CPU, fan and memory without the video card and got no beeps. Normally if there's no graphics present mobos would beep. This one just starts then nothing, with or without video card.

    I have four 256 Rambus installed. The mobo has an Intel/AMI bios and gives three beeps if the amount of ram sticks are uneven.
