Change the battery on the mobo, maybe it's gone.

The checklist linked to is not just for new systems. It's for troubleshooting "no post" problems regardless of how new or old the system is. In my experience this type of problem is usually caused by a dead/dying stick of RAM. Step #6 in the checklist addresses that. You should try booting the system with each stick of RAM by itself.

Hi Mate,

First of all is there any power coming in to the mobo, led etc? I assume yes

1)My first suggestion would before anything trying a different graphics card in there or testing your card on someone else system, this will determine if its your card. If its not your card then.....

2) Clear C Mos, as far as im aware on a P5 this is done via a jumper, check the mobos manual to confirm which jumper.

£) The only thing you want connected to your mobo is cpu+fan, 1 stick of ram in slot A1, and your card, nothing else. This always helps.

If after you have checked the card, cleared the cmos(sometimes this needs to be done a couple of times) your basically down to the board or the cpu

Let me know what happens Scamp
