my cousins rig is this. p41.7 , jetway p4mfm mobo, 128 mb pc2100, onboard video, onboard sound and an internal modem. she got a generic psu, a cdrom drive and cdwriter. the problem is when she is booting her pc, the monitor will shut down but the power led on the case is still yellow. the power led on the monitor is red at this time. i tried replacing the ram and switching between the two dimm slots but still the same thing happens. i tried also installing winxp pro but still the same problem. now i am suspeting that it is the mobo or the processor that is malfunctioning. i will try tomorrow
using her processor on my pc and check if the same problem will occur. also my other cousin will try to use her mobo on his pc to check it also. now the question is, am i on the right way on finding out what the real problem is? additional info is sometimes i can boot to windows and use the pc but when i shut it down then after 30 min when i open it, the problem is there again.
