I am building a new PC. It's an Asus A7N8X-E deluxe, AMD 3200+, 1gig PC2700 ram, 80gig IDE HDD, DVD/RW, FX 5200.
Now onto the problem. When I boot up the machine the monitor stays blank and the green LED light is flashing on and off. I tried a different monitor and the same thing happens. I tried a differnet video card (mx440 se), same thing. I read somewhere that it means the monitor is recieving no signal, is this true? I wonder if restting the CMOS would help?
As wodchip says above, if you have tried it with just one memory stick and a graphics card and it still won't boot, try another graphics card and try another memory stick - if that fails to fix it then you are left with either a faulty mobo or dead cpu. I had the same problem a while ago went through the same process as you are doing and eventually was left with the mobo as the source of the problem. Had no choice but to bin it and get a new one
