No beeps, black screen on start up
Posted on 2006-04-12
I read some of the past threads on this, but my situation is a bit different I think as I can get it to boot via 'a trick'.
So the other week I installed my new slave HD and all was good.
Then the other day I get Kernal_Data_Inpage_Error blue screen of death
Not sure if that is related to my big problem now of, my PC won't boot up!
I turn on the power button, it whirs, the lights flash on the CD drives, but no beeps and nothing comes on the screen.
I figured out that if I put a CD in the CD drive and bang on the DEL key, I can get to the bios. Once I do that, I save and exit and Windows loads normally.
I did this first yesterday and it said I had an improper CPU setting. I haven't touched my bios ever so what the heck? BTW it was at 1150MHz.
I did the CD/DEL trick again today and I never got the the improper CPU setting message.
Once I get into Windows everything seems to work fine.
Any ideas guys? Motherboard? Processor?
