    before this happened ive noticed a few weird things when turnign on my computer.
    when i push the buttons i can hear the fans and everything go on, for a second, then it turns off, than turns back on
    than when its loading(before going on xp)
    its said something about overclocking failed
    do i want to go back to settings
    or continue with default

    i chose default, than after that everything went normal, turned off my computer...and i couldnt start it up again

    wheni push the buttons theres nothing on the sceen, i can hear the fans,
    but there isnt that BEEP sound that i usually hear when i start it up.
    the screen is all black, i cant even go into bios.

    so i gave it in to repair, they fixed it, said somehting "ROM" n "flash" :confused: cant remember

    the computer worked for a few times, than the samething happened, no display... im pretty sure its not the monitor.

    anyone know whats wrong,how do i fix it?
    i think i have the same problem with this guy..

    try to take away your memory and or processor <do it one by one>, if still no long BEEP sound <for the memory> and or the BEEP....BEEP....BEEP sound <for the processor>, it means that your mobo is dead.

    Look on the motherboard and you will see a small watch battery. Carefully pull it out and leave it out for 5 minutes, now try booting again after putting it back.

    Do what Rich said, remove the little silver battery (CMOS BATTERY). This will reset your BIOS settings to factory, you need to go into your bios and check to make sure that everything is set to factory and not overclocked. This kind of thing can happen if a CPU is overclocked too far, causing your computer to not boot.

    i never over clocked it before

    alright i found a short term fix for this....
    i havnt tried takin the battery out yet

    but each time theres no display. i turn off the power, pull the plug , than press power switch a couple times, wait, than plugit back in, than it works fine! :s

    but than same thing happens again next time i start the comp
    so i hav to do the exact same thign again

    does anyone know what wrong now?
    other people wiht teh same motherboard with me seems to have the same problem, "asus p5k delux"

    i have a feeling it got to do with something with the bios and a recent windows update? maybe i wrong

    should i update my bios?
