ok so i have enough parts to build 3.5 comps in my room alone. but besides the point

the comp im having problems with isnt anything special im just trying to get 1 up and running

ok specs:

mobo:
Intel® LGA775 Platform
- Intel® Core™2 Extreme / Core™2 Duo Ready
- Intel® Pentium® D / Pentium® 4 / Celeron® D Ready
- Dual-channel DDR2 667/533
- NVIDIA® SLI™ Technology
- ASUS Q-Connector
- ASUS O.C. Profile

Processor: pentium 4

ram- 256 ddr2 (brand new)

hard drive: 40gb SATA

power supply: 600w

vid card: ATI radeon 9200 pci



now everything starts up.. lights glow and all but i dont get a bios screen.
- i have tried 3 dif mother boards, 2 dif hardrives, 2 dif processors.
also what happens, say my CD drives if the IDD cables are plugged into my mobo then they wont open they act completly dead, but if i disconnect them from my mobo they work fine.

(and yes all these parts are compatable ive already checked)

memory? have you tried different memory? my computer won't post as my memory is dead. so it could be that.

yeah, do the clear cmos with the jumper then the bat if it didn't work.
that has happened with me and a floppy drive before.


by the way, welcome to the forum :)

Yes, of course; Welcome to TPU Forums.

Also download the mobo manual, check to ensure memory is in proper slot for your mobo.
