Computer not Posting, just a bit of help

Recommended Posts

Wow, I havnt been on this site in a while!

 

So anyways, I got back from deployment about 5 months ago, when I got back I brought the computer out of storage and the computer would not post. I already had a working laptop so I just threw it back in storage and moved back to California. Well now I want the desktop to work and I just started troubleshooting it. I disconnected all the non requirements (HD, CD ROM, took out 3 sticks of ram, and switched them out to make sure it isnt the RAM and still left 1 stick in).

 

It will not post, nothing to the monitor, I have clearted the CMOS. So is there any way to test what is wrong?

 

Thinking its the motherboard or the graphics card, just don't have any spares to test it out.

 

Thanks for any help guys!

have you tried this?

 

1.remove all the rams....if the mb works, it will give you no memory beeps....

2.put 1 ram and remove the graphic card, see did the mb got beeps

3. try pull out your mb from the case, and test it on your mb box....on point 1 and 2...see what happen

 

Also have you google this? MSI p35 NEO wont post It seems like these motherboards have quite the issue with posting.

Pulled out memory, no beep

Pulled out graphics card, no beep

 

 

 

Oh and unplugged the graphic card power (but still had card in mobo) and it had a solid beeping noise.

 

MB for sure toast.

 

Think my graphics card is still good?
