I am building a shuttle pc using the Biostar iDEQ C1 barebone system.
From the box:
Socket LGA 775 for Intel Pentium 4 / Celeron D with 800MHz FSB
VIA P4M800 + VT8237R
DDR400 Memory up to 2GB
Integrated VIA Unichrome
Also, the user manual for this system states 'Supports 133/166/200MHz DDR Devices. I thought the 400 in DDR400 represtented MHz?
Hardware I have installed on the motherboard:
Celeron D processor 331+ - 2.66 GHz 533 MHz FSB 256KB L2 Cache
pqi DDR 1GB (2x512) pc 3200 Turbo
2x500GB Seagate SATA.
The problem I have when when powering on is that once I press the power button the fans on the cooling fans (one on the heatsink, one on the case start spinning up but almost immediatly stop. Sometimes the case fan continues to spin, the heatsink fan always stops. The power LED continues to stay green and the Powersupply fan continues to spin. Also, the monitor does not display anything.
I have tried booting with no hdd's, no ram, no hdd or ram, and always get the same problem. I am not 100% sure if I tried booting with no CPU installed, but I think I tried that too, although not sure if that is even a reasonable troubleshooting step.
It's been about 2 or 3 years since I built my last pc where I really did my research in hardware because I wanted a top-notch pc. But this time I am just building a little media center file server so wasnt concerened about getting the best hardware configuration. But in doing so, I think I have over looked something probably pretty obvious which is causing this problem. Or Maybe I just have some faulty hardware, I was thinking maybe my power supply is bad but this barebone system has QC stickers all over it.
My next guess is that I either the memory or processor are not compatible with this motherboard.
