    Hi out there:
    My old /spare computer will not post. It was fine until I got another PIII computer and switched components back and forth between them to get the "new" one to work. There is power because the fans are on. It seems a bit strange because what happens is I power up the computer, I here no beeps at all and after a few seconds I hear the hard drive working then nothing else happens. I have tried different RAM and video card with no change in response. I have reset the CMOS (took jumper off, turned on and off computer) no effect. Any ideas?

    I am assuming you have taking the CPU out and re-seated it also? Make sure you only try and POST with the bare needs.

    CPU, Heat Sink on CPU, Memory, and Video Card.

    Do not connect any cables, do not install any other PCI cards etc....

    I had the same problem when I built my new comp. It turns out the manufacturer had sent me a bummed mobo. As soon as i replaced it everything worked fine. It sounds to me like your mobo is damaged. :(

    Hi out there:

    Thanks for the input because the advice was good and appreciated but did not correct the fault. The good thing is that I reapproached the situation and reviewed what I did and did not do. Because I am "relatively" new at this, I had omitted to do a basic thing and that was to make sure that I had the RAM in the right slot. Yes, I had the RAM in the last (wrong) slot :eek: which would have been the first (right) slot for my new computer. Everything was opposite with these computers. Anyway live and learn or live and learn over and over again. :D
