Well even with all the support I have been getting from a friend over the phone involving issues I am having with my new PC build that was finished at the end of December I still would like more viewpoints on just what the heck might be the issue. so here goes first the specs of this PC build. Motherboard: Asus Extreme Design Mobo model M4A77TD CPU: AMM Athlon II X2 250, 3.0 Ghz True Dual-Core Design, 2.0 Mb total cache, socket AM3 with heat sink fan Ram: 1333MHz 4GB (2x2GB) Corsair XMS3 Video card: EVGA Nividia Geforce Gt 240, 1GB DDR5 PCI-E 2.0 HDD: 1 320 gig Sata Primary HD parttioned to two drives and 1 500Gb Sata secondary drive for storage, games and programs, PSU: LSP Ultra 550w ATX PSU Ok now with that aside here has what has been going on and stuff I have done.. When i finally got the last pieces of the build being the hard drives i started to hook one up and put the Os being in this case for me sadly Win XP home 32 bit version(yeah i know not getting the whole 4 gigs used out of it ), and it took a while for the bios to see that there was a HD there before and after i was able to install the Os on the hard drive. Well after i got the first one in and it seemed to be reading it fine, I went and put the 2nd in and i had to move it from different Sata ports till finally the bios saw both as well as the Dvd-R, but still i was also getting issues with it not recognizing a keyboard or mouse I thought well it has been well over 10 years since i had a brand new PC so things change and never know.. Well after talking with my friend and getting everything sorted out I was doing fine, able to play games i could not, and things loaded quickly, no issues. Well one night i fell asleep with my PC on and for me I'm not the type of person who likes to leave a PC on long and go back to doing stuff. So i restarted it through the Windows restart system. That is when the problems first started... it did not boot up at all, after some trial and error i manged to get it so it saw as far as reading the Ram be it one stick or both, I eventually ended up sending in my mobo and when it got back still no change, I could not even get anything to come up as far as i can tell.. Well i was like ok maybe by chance it was the CPU, So i sent that out, got a new one with a note said they did test the one i sent in and it did work, which got me thinking about the mobo. So i called up Asus and found out they sent the same board i sent in back to me but repaired it.. So i was like ok it must still be broke, So i requested a replacement and recently just got the new one and guess what. no change. Now i am able to easily test the hard drives, and the video card on my old Pc , but i have no way to test the Ram. The cpu was pretty much ruled out and chances of getting a mobo dying on me that is new one first install is rare , and they did sent paper work saying they even tested the thing before sending it to me. Now that based on my father who is not well versed in the current PC hardware and software as well as my friend who has helped me a ton over the phone. it comes down two the following things they.. more so my friend thinks it could be. 1: Keyboard.. his solution to rule this out is try a USB one, which is easy enough since i planned to get a USB one to sue with my laptop since the keys are not clicking so good these days. 2: two bad sticks of ram, this he doesn;t think is the case since i've made sure to kepe it in teh cases they came with when the Pc was out of action like now as well as how it read both sticks by themselves at that point. 3: Bad mobo, simple enough but with what i said he thinks its unlikely, 4: The PSU.. this is what my dad and him as well as myself are leaning towards. I mean my tech knowledge might not be like some but i know one bad cable can make it seem worse than it is. I plan on sending it on for a test and replacement depending on what they say over the phone as well as info you all might provide. Now Aside from the Case and PSU, all parts are just under 6 months old if you don't include the replacements sent. I have tried all methods i can think of from having 1 stick of ram and no hard drives in to nothing.. but from what i gathered this mobo doesn't have a Pc speaker so as far as the warning beeps i cannot hear them until i either grab the one form my working system and test it or just get one which is pretty cheap if not free for me because of where my dad works. Lastly I still have one thing i was suggested to try, which is press the key that gets me into Bios whether i can see anything on a monitor or not it might do something. but with how most monitors use that power saving mode I have no idea. Well there you have it as much info as i can think of. Now hopefully some out there can read and give feedback on your viewpoints and thoughts with your knowledge. Thanks in advance.
