  1. Plz i dunno what to do.. Ive installed an new motherboard an Abit An-7.. But my display shows nothing when i start up the computer everything runs but no picture.. Ive got an 400w power supply and only 1 hard drive connected an 160Gb Westrern Digital 8Mb cache, xp3000+ and 2x256Mb ram installed.. Both Atx pins is installed correctly (1x20pin+1x4pin) Ive checked the backside and nothing is shortcirkuting the motherboard.. Also tried to installed a new battery but that doesnt work either.. Also tried to reset CMOS but that didnt help either...My graphic card is a Ati radeon 9600pro 256Mb if that is at any help.. And also my motherboard shows the numbers 90..

    Did you try pulling some plugs from the power strip?
    Or just pulling PSU and/or monitor out and back again?
    There might be more load on your PSU because of the new mobo.

    if you havn't got much experience, you probably made a simple error during installation. either that or you got bad hardware to begin with (not likely). i advise taking it into a local pc repar shop, should you be unable to fix it.
