No monitor display/floppy on powerup
Posted on 1998-03-17
I just assembled an all new component PC. Upon start-up , I can see the system checking all the drives
(EXCEPT the floppy ), but there is NEVER anything on the monitor . I get the single "okay" beep after it has went through it's little start thing , but that's it . I can't tell if it is going into BIOS or anything because the screen is black . I have taken all the parts that I can interchange , and swapped them in the old PC ... but there are a few that can't interchangen. I would give all the points in the world to have this system up and running ...... lifes savings are invested in it , and I thought that I could do it at first , don't have the cash to bring it into a shop in MT.
Here is a list of all the components that are involved here ; Abit LX6 motherboard rev 1.01 */* (1)SDRAM DIMM 128 MB W?SPD 16x64 168 pin 3.3v 100 MH */*Western Digital Caviar HDrive 6.4 GB */*Evercase ECE3134 case w/powersupply (ATX) */* TEAC floppy disk */* Pentium II 266 */* Matrox Millenium II Video card w/8MB WRAM */* Syquest EZFler (internal) */* Sony 32X CDRom ... oh .. and thats an AWARD BIOS PnP on the LX6 .
I have swapped all the drives onto another PC , but can't swap the vidcard , mem , or CPU cause they can't exchange . The evercase wiring is funky though .... and came w/no directions . The PN1 plug was hard to figure out This is my first entire build ... but I know a little about computers ... I rate this question as really hard ... and you can have all my points if you can help me get it together .
