    Hello all,

    I am having the CMOS error report to the screen and as I press DELETE to enter setup, it freezes every time and does not allow me to continue any further. I have tried unplugging all unnecessary hardware (floppy, HDD, CD-DVD, sound card).

    After unplugging the video card and cable to dust off any major amount of dust, I reinstalled the card and when plugging the cable from the monitor into the card, I noticed a very small but noticeable spark from the connector part. After powering on the computer, the only thing I get is a blank black screen. There is no response in the keyboard and no MOBO beeps. :( I have tried only one stick of memory with this test as I am trying to limit the problem areas.

    I have built a few computers and never had this sort of problem. I am considering taking apart the computer to its base pieces and reinstalling them after dusting for an assured connection.

    Please help, this is very confusing and frustrating and i would hate to pay someone at CC or BB to do something I can do. Thanks very much,

    Even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread when you have a new issue. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread.

    I've created a new thread for your issue here.

    Thanks for your cooperation.
