PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Win98
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:AMD Duron 1.1G precessor & MSI MS-6378 Micro ATX Skt A Athlon/Duron/ XP 2000+MHz Video/Sound Motherboard


Problem began (friends PC) when they tryed booting up & nothing worked.  No On light, power, etc.  After checking powerpack was fine thought BIOS currupt.  Was going to upgrade anyway (It was a celeron 450). So bought new motherboard & processor (above).  Installed fine with new fan & heatsink.  Turned on power & it worked.  Began the first bootup screen then it all died & wouldnt turn on again.  Thought was dead processor so got replaced.  Same thing happened.
HELP!!!  Is is a dead motherboard or could it be something completely different?Smiley

Thanks for reply.

Could faulty power pack blow processor but leave motherboard working?

Sounds as if you have a power supply that can't cope with your system. It must be a minimum of 400 watts and has to be set to the correct voltage for your area.

Usually a failure to boot is a corrupt BIOS.

But something is definitely with your power supply!

Did you build the system yourself or did you get it all from a store?

Your monitor could be out of date for your video card.

Any beeps at startup?

unplug drives from mother board and restart, does it start/turn on?

Really spell it out for me as I can't play GOD MODE here.

Ps:  Answers to questions:

The friend got a small shop to build it- 3/4 years ago.  Graphics, RAM & hard drive upgraded recently (all fine).

Mainly tryed boot up without any other cards plugged in, graphics, modem etc.

There was the initisl beeb when turned on.

Sounds as if you have not setup the HD in the BIOS?

will it boot to BIOS; just hold down F2 key while booting.
