ASUS A7V266-C motherboard hanging - why?
Posted on 2002-05-31
New motherboard with AMD 1800+, 256 pc2100, 40 gig diamondmax, TNT agp that runs fine once computer gets going, windows 98SE; when power button hit, the POST does NOT complete (i.e. no RAM 'beep'), and the screen stays black; at this point I hit the soft reset button and the pc gets going. From within windows, if I select "restart computer" it tries to re-boot, but again hangs before the POST is done - screen stays black. I turn the pc off, wait a few minutes, restart it, it once again hangs, I hit the reset button, off we go!! Once going, the pc has no problems. ALL BIOS settings are in default position. ASUS hasn't responded yet. Could this be a power supply problem?
HELP!!!!! It's a brand spankin' new clone!!!
