Operating System Version: N/A
Problem Application Name & Version: N/A
Problem Hardware Make & Model: Athlon XP 2500; MSI K7N2; GeForce 4 Ti 4600
Error Messages: The pc will not boot.  There are no beeps when starting the pc.  Have tried three other motherboards and one other cpu.  The lights on the keyboard light up every five seconds or so.  Like they do when the bios is initializing.  Even if the bios is bad on one motherboard, I know it is not bad on four of them.  I think it's very odd that there are no beeps.  I know the speaker is connected correctly.  I've tried both ways just to be sure.  I've also tried three different power supplies.  But it is not a power issue.  I've only reseated the cpu about 20 times.  All the fans turn on but nothing else happens.  I only have the vid card, and memory on the motherboard right now. Any help would be great.

Seems like your down to video card or memory.

Make sure the ribbon cable going to the hard drive is oriented properly, if one end is reversed, this would cause the system not to power up on some motherboard. To test, simply disconnect all ribbon cables at the motherboard end.

Also, if using metal stand-off (pegs under motherboard that supports it) make sure they are aligned with the holes in the motherboard properly so that nothing is shorted out.
