Ok, the problems started with my brothers computer the commputer would randomly blue screen with a 00000050 stop signal this would even happen when i tried to reinstall windows onto the harddrive and after looking at similar probs on the web seemed to point to a faulty cache on his ASUS A7N8X deluxe motherboard. To resolve this we purchased a new motherboard an ASUS A7N8X-E deluxe, however after installing this a new problem arose. when trying to turn on the computer no signal was reaching the monitor, I know the monitor is working fine as ive tested it on another computer and tried another monitor on the faulty computer. Secondly, i know that the video card is not faulty as ive tried another AGP card inthe computer.(it has a Radeon 9700 pro installed).
after looking on the web it seemed to point to a power supply problem, so i bought a new 400w power supply, this made no difference and suffered from the same problem for a couple of boots, but then the problem grew and now when you press the power button nothing happens. I know power is running to the motherboard as the led on the board is lit to let me know this.
Can any one help or has any one suffered similar problems??
the other specs are 256 mb ram, amd athlon 2500, sata seagate 80GB hd
