This is my first post so please forgive me if this message is an incorrect forum. Here is my situation I have a custom built computer that is about 6 years old. It had been running fine until one morning I noticed my computer had turned off overnight. Upon trying to start the computer the fans would start for a second and then stop. I naturally thought it was the power supply and upon changing it all the fans (processor fan, video fan) started functioning, my motherboard states "FF" but I get no display on my monitor. I have taken out the RAM and just tired running the computer within a single stick but that doesn't help either. I have taken the parts out (video card, ram, dvd rom, etc) and reconnected with no luck.
Does anyone have any suggestion on how I can get my computer functioning again?
Have you tried clearing the CMOS? If that does not work a failing power supply could have fried your mobo. This would not happen to be an Ibuypwer PC would it? I have seen this happen with their stuff before. They tend to leave a cheap power supply that comes with the case in their builds unless you spec something better.
Interesting, I have the same problem with my Elite GF7100PVT-M3 Motherboard, E8400 Dual Core CPU. Removed Mem modules and hard drive. Beeps continuously but no display. Tried clearing CMOS, removing the battery, and putting all of them together.
