  1. Hi there hope someone can help

    I have an AMD ATHLON 2600+ (333MHX) Instaled on an Asrock K7S8X motherboard with 256 mb 233mhz ddr and a Geforce fx 128mb (AGP) graphics card.
    When i turn it on the fans spin theres no beeps and theres no video output from the graphics card.
    O.K i thought change the ram instaled 512mb (333mhz) still nothing
    O.K Change the graphics card tried another nvidea 128mb and a 32mb pci,again nothing.
    O.k maybe the motherboard is shorting on a brass connector on the case,removed everthing to a non metallic surface, Guess what !!!!!!!!

    Please someone help me i,ve ran out of ideas

    If there was a short, the system wouldn't power up, becasue all the power would end up goign to ground, which automatically turns off the PSU per ATX standards, but, it could be the PSU not putting out enough power, or its flaking on you. If you can, please elaborate the last time the system was in useable condition, and what was done, this is where many problems are solved, but with this info, I'm betting the PSU.
