G-Stress Posted February 12, 2007 Share Posted February 12, 2007 Hey guys just figured I would ask to make sure I didn't leave out or forget any step. 1 of my machines today I went to get on it to do whatever. Anyway it's been in a room for along time a cold room at that maybe about 20 degrees on average. It's been on and I haven't touched it for over a week until tonight I go down and reboot it and it first gives me a floppy drive error I forget the exact error and says system halted... all on a black screen. I'm like okay that's weird when I disabled the floppy in the cmos. So I reboot again and now I don't get video at all... doesn't make sense to me. I tried to other video cards with no luck. I removed/reseated the cpu, with no luck and it still looks like it's okay. It's a p4 2.4 ghz. After taking the case lid off I notice theres no jumper on the cmos pins at all, so I try to reset it with no luck. Removed the battery for awhile with no luck. Also I figured I would get the series of beeps when removing the ram and powering on, but I didn't... :? Another thing that's weird is when inside the case I touch certain areas of the motherboard with my bare hands it will power on. Or when I goto insert my flash drive in the front panel usb ports it will shut the system down as if I had unplugged it from the wall. The power supply is a 480w Demon Silver Chrome. The board I can't remember exactly I got it from a friend with no documentation. It's very small with only 2 pci buses and uses the VIA 8237 chipset I believe. Ram 256mb DDR 3200 I just wanted to make sure I didn't leave out any step in troubleshooting... it's been awhile since I've had video problems :oops: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
