Im having a look at a friends computer and the problem is,I switch on, every thing seems to be running but no POST beep.I get the name Compaq with memory check,it then hangs for a while,nothing on monitor,then up comes Compaq again etc etc.I'm leaning towards a motherboard problem,as another friend had a similar problem with the same model,but got it sorted under warranty.Any suggestions folks.

My PC makes no POST beep! Think it is becuase the option is not on....


But PC health is ok in the BIOS.

thanks mate but that is not the answer,the motherboard is old...... there is nothing in bios relating to pc health.
