The problem is very serious. When there is a problem with hardware at boot, it is generally indicated by a error message on the screen. When the problem is more complicated, it is indicated by a beep error code sequence. Check if there is a beep sound emmited by PC Speaker. The manual of your motherboard indicates what is the cause of the problem, according the number of beeps.

For the beeps to be emmited, is necessary that the processor can work, have some memory functional, and data must flow between processor or memory. If none beep is emmited, you can have some of the following problems:

- The CPU is programmed with the wrong clock
- The memory is defective
- The memory access is too fast
- The power supply is defective
- The Motherboard is defective

Remove the SIMM modules and clean its contacts with a eraser. Enter CMOS Setup and use the option "Auto Configuration with Power on defaults". If the boot is ok, the problem can be related to a wrong parameter on Setup, related to memory access. Use the option "Autoconfiguration with BIOS defaults", and check if the system works. You will have to check all the CMOS Setup parameters, to discover what is the cause of the problem.

After these tests, tell me the results, and I will try to direct you to the solution.
