just got an ECS P4M800PRO-M motherboard and an intel celeron 3.06ghz, after fitting the processor and board in properly and connecting everything back up including graphics and sound card, dvd writer and my 2 hdd's i booted it up and i get the fans running and a few small hdd sounds yet my monitor switches off and the system wont boot, i can't even get into bios.
can anyone help
the jumper for the bios is set to normal and noe clr
First try removing the CMOS battery for about 30 minutes or so, this should ensure that the CMOS is thoroughly reset. If that doesn't help, disconnect EVERYTHING from the motherboard except the power connector, the processor with heatsink the case speaker and the power switch. Also unscrew the motherboard from the case and rest it on an insulating surface such as a sheet of card. When you switch on, you should then get a POST error beep because of the absence of memory or graphics. If you don't, then you have a faulty motherboard, power supply or processor. You can only tell which by substitution.
ok it booted into bios with just the 512 stick in, and now it won't detect the hdd's...after taking both drives out the system still boots but only to the first screen for a couple of seconds then shuts down completely, also re-added both hdd's and it still just shuts down after initially booting not giving me time to enter bios.
