Hey peeps. This one will keep you guessing for while... Before I brief you, here is my hardware:
mobo: asus a7v8x
cpu: amd athlon xp 2000
psu: antec 400W
gpu: geforce4 mx 400
ram: pc2700 512mb
HD: WD WD400
Here is the rundown: I assemble this pc and successfully install xp pro on it. Installation goes flawless. No probs whatsoever. I shut down the pc and move it to another location in the house where there's an internet connection. I get on the internet with the new pc to continue with updates, drivers, etc. At one point, it prompted for a reboot. The pc shuts down and never comes back up. Upon hitting the power button to turn it back on, it gives every appearance of being "on" except no image on the monitor. The hard drive light flashes a few times then goes out. The cpu fan is on, the psu fan is on, the mobo light is on, except nothing on the monitor. The monitor light alternates between green and amber.
Here is the troubleshooting i've done thus far, all of which has resulted in not resolving the problem: Swapped out psu for a new one (antec) and no result. Tried different video card with no result. Disconnected the cr-rom, removed nic, and rebooted and no result. I've tried almost every combination and then rebooted and still nothing.
Not sure if a bios jumper reset will work or not.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Hope all had an awesome Christmas.
