I formerly had a box with:
1. ASUS P5K SE 2 motherboard.
2. 4G of OZC PC2 8500 memory.
3. Intel Q9500.
4 1 NIC card + 1 NIC on MB.
5. Nvidia GeForce 9500GT video card.
6. Plus 5 Seagate 7200.11 HDDs of various sizes.
When I turn the computer on, I get a blank screen as if the box were still turned off. No boot message or beeps.
Last night I was able to install ASUS Express Gate and had web access until this morning. See below regarding issues with the "C:\" drive (related???).
I put a new HDD in SATA1 an booted again with same results.
Question: With no boot messages is it safe to conclude the mother board is broken or should I test each component (memory, CPU, graphics card) in another computer before I replace the MB?
I have had very serious KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR problems the last 10 days. I removed the "C:\" drive and put it on a VISTA box and I can see all the files on it. I ran S.M.A.R.T test on the drive and it came back with too many errors. I downloaded SeaTools and the generic short test came back with immanent drive failure. I also moved the page file from the "C" drive to another drive.
