Hi memo tnt,

   Nothing is coming while connecting the console and rebooting.
- turn it off, , try unplug the flash disk , and plug it again,,
I have tried remoiving the RAM , is this what u mean?
yes, and same thing ??
- does its Fan working ok??

- Is the console cable the correct one? To make sure it is the correct one, check whether or not the console cable and the PC serial port work on another device, such as a Cisco IOS® router. If another device is not available, compare the ends of the cable side by side. The cable should be rolled, with the wire colors exactly reversed. If necessary, also check whether or not the console port works with a different PC.  
the fans are working fine and the console is working fine with other cisco routers
I think its something with the boot process,what do you think?
did you try to hit CTRL + BREAK after rebooting ??
No , I did not
I tried but the same thing
