    Hi I am having a problem with my PC, I removed all of the PCI cards, RAM and IDE devices, and turn on the PC but it doesn't beep at all. When everything is plugged in it just black screens, I got it to start up once and it just sat on the WINDOWS blue screen and wont go any further, I have moved the HDD to an other PC and it starts up fine, I have tried different monitors and the same thing. I haved check the PSU It is reading 5.42 and I even tried a different PSU just incase but it didn't make a difference. I am thinking that it is the mothboard, the PC is about 5-6 years of the motherboard is ASUS A7V8X-MX. Any help or ideas would be great. Thanks

    I hate to say it but your instincts are probably correct - the mobo has finally decided to go the way of all great mobos. The PSU would be the only idea I would have for you but it sounds as if you've tested that out as well. Luck...Let us know...Jazz

    I agree it sounds like your board has failed. Those boards were not bad for a via chipset board. I still have one running here as a network storage box.
