A little while ago I turned my computer on and got no response. I opened up the computer and found that everything appeared to be getting power and running properly, but the monitor got no signal (no beeps either). I tried disconnecting everything and booting with just ps, mb, cpu, and ram connected and got the same response (same after connecting video also). I then tried replacing the motherboard. With the new mobo, I get a single "OK" beep and garbage displayed on the screen (not text, but some kind of strange screen pattern). I've also tried swapping memory with same results. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

computer specs:
PS: 420w 12v (not sure brand)
MB: Intel D865 PERL
CPU: P4 2.4B
Mem: Generic 512MB and Generic 256MB (768 total)
Vid: ATI AIW 9800 Pro

If on the new mobo you do get text, but it is garbled up (right from the start), then your videocard is broken. See if you're still eligible for parole... err RMA.

If you leave me some information on your computer, I'll try. Check here for the guidelines on that. Smiley (i.e. that's easier than emailing me Wink)
