System will not boot - No BIOS screen
Posted on 2006-06-14
Hello, first time post... Here's my system basics:
Pentium 4 1.9 GHz on Intel D850EMV2 mobo.
768 MB RDRAM
350W Antec ATX12V v2.0 PSU
GeForce 4 4x AGP
When I turn on computer I get black screen, curser at top left. After a few seconds: "Boot Failure: System Halted"
I guessed MOBO was screwed up and replaced with same model. Still the same thing.
I admit I realize I'm probably more stupid at computers than I'd like to admit. All this started when fan on my old psu in old case stopped working. I found a cheap new case with psu and transferred everything over. That's the first time I got the black screen/boot failure screen. Turns out PSU was ATX, not ATV12V like mobo lit required. I then got ATX12V psu listed above and new mobo, assuming I fried old mobo. Same problem with the new psu and mobo.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
