Did it used to work properly (POST) and now it doesn't...or is this a fresh build and it won't POST?

Let me get my crystal ball and try to sense what hardware you have, then maybe I can help you. LOOOL. Get a clue buddy.

Are you like one of those pretty evil ladies like in the movies?

Are you sure you have all the power connectors connected to the motherboard, including 4/8-pin power?
June 13, 2008 2:54:55 AM

Yes all connections are connected on this board if not it wont even try to start i was looking at other forum`s and other peouple have had the same
proublem but havent found a Fix yet. took it to a computer repair shop but they wount even look at it for less than 150.00 and that is not even a guarentee that they can fix it i am sure ther should be some simple thing that i can do ( I HOPE ) Thanks again

Okay, post your full specs so we can get to business of helping you.
June 13, 2008 1:09:43 PM

ok i hope this is what you are asking it is a ASUS P5K Deluxe
intel LGA775 Platform
intel P35 chipset
intal Pentium 4 processor
Dual-channel DDR2 800 MHz ram
Heat Pipe & Stack Cool 2
with ( e-GeForce 7300 GS PCI-E ) Video Card
is that what you need?
June 13, 2008 5:58:50 PM

Well, we really need the:

CPU (exact type, if possible)
Cooling type (not necessarily, but just for grins)
RAM (manufacturer, model & speed (ie PC6400)
video card
hard drives
and anything else you've got plugged in or hanging off your system
June 13, 2008 9:41:52 PM

OK the cpu is intel M C 04
Pentium 4
630 SL729
300 GHZ/2m/800/04A
1GB PC2-6400 CL5
video card is e-GeForce 7300 GS PCI-E
no hard drive pluged in at the moment That is all i have now
i am still trying to just trying to get it up to the bios.
it is sitting on a card board box.
June 13, 2008 9:44:11 PM

oh also the cooling fan is intel That came with the CPU
June 13, 2008 10:27:10 PM

Might be a stupid question but did you by chance overlook plugging in the power supply to the video card? Did you try posting with only one stick of ram?
June 13, 2008 11:52:04 PM

No the video card has a fan on it and the moniter is pluged into the card
and yes i did try one stick ram even switched them one at a time
but thanks it still just keeps cycleing on for about 3 sec then stops
then back on and so forth.

Are you absolutely sure you have the reset switch connected the right way?
June 14, 2008 10:39:39 AM

Try removing the CPU, place it in a pot of boiling lead and say goodbye...
Im relatively sure (as and stake my life savings on it) That that Pentium 4 isn't 300GHz :p 

Anyway... Check the back of your mobo for any shorts. Is the Mobo on Cardboard or some other non-conductor/ organic based compound or is it just sitting on the kitchen bench?
June 14, 2008 1:10:39 PM

first of all the reset switch is not even connected the motherboard is setting
on a BOX MADE OF REGULAR CARDBOARD and my cpu is a
Pentium 4 3.00Hz SORRY i Missed the . my mistake
June 14, 2008 2:31:19 PM

3 GHz, jk, I knew it wasn't.
The boiling lead was reference to a movie... I couldnt think of its title and I really liked it, so I was hoping someone would go. "Ah thats from ..."
But nevermind

Have you checked your CPUs fan connector (around the right way etc.)?
If you have a second PSU use that and see if it works.

Try disconnecting as many components as possible (i.e. secondary GPU (I think mobo has onboard), leave only 1 stick of RAM etc.)
June 14, 2008 6:28:48 PM

CPU fan connector is on right if it wasent it would not even start at all
dont have a second PSU to use
i dont have any thing as stated above except power supply video card
and one stick of ram any MORE HELP WOULD BE NICE
June 17, 2008 10:48:01 PM

If there is any one else out there that would have any ideas on this
proublem would be Happy to here from you
June 19, 2008 11:08:05 AM


Try to boot without the cpu, ram and video card.
The board should now beep reporting the missing components. If not the problem is in psu or mb, try another mb with that psu/ try another psu with that mb.
