    I was playing Burnout when the computer crashed and the blue screen error came up. Since then when I turn the computer on all the fans turn on, HDD activity light flashes but nothing appears on the monitor.I can't boot in to safe-mode or enter the bios settings. I've tried using the 8800gt and the onboard gfx (950 gma) but nothing appears. I read that taking the ram out and then turning it on the mobo should beep..but it didn't however it did beep when I didn't plug the cable in to the 8800gt.

    I have a Asrock 1333-D667 mobo
    Windows 7 RC
    2gb Ram
    8800gt 512mb
    E2180 @2.00GHz

    No beep without ram installed does not look good. Here is some basic troubleshooting you can do.

    1 Open the case and pull the pw connectors from ALL drives; both hd and optical.
    2 Remove all add-in cards except the video card
    3 Disconnect any usb type device; ie hub, printer, scanner, etc.
    4 Clear cmos with the clear jumper for a min of 20~30seconds. Replace jumper to keep position.
    5 Now attempt a pw ON of the system and see if it will post.

    If it does post in the above config, then shutdown and add devices one at a time until you find the problem. If it does not post, then start replacing parts with known good units.

    FWIW I would start with the pw supply as the first part replaced.

    I've cleared the CMOS and I've tried using a different PSU (600w) but the same thing still happens..=[

    k, so I got it to boot in to windows 7, i used it for about 3 hours and then I restarted it for updates but now it won't boot up again...

    When I got it to boot up it displayed "Keyboard interface error, F1 to continue"
    also when i got it to boot up the clock was 2 years behind..=/

    could it be the CMOS Battery?
