  1. Hi my computer won't POST, it powers up and all fans spin (inc cpu fan) but there is no vga output and no power to the keyboard. Definiately NO beeps.

    mobo Gigabyte GA-740 Pro2
    Geforce fx graphics
    AMD XP 3000+
    2 x 512mb pc3200 ram stick (dual channel)
    465w Enermax psu
    XP home

    heres the story, my primary SCSI hdd started to produce errors so i got a vaidation code and returned it as it was in warrenty, replacement came, I ghosted everything across... worked just fine.
    next day i overclock my ram by setting it to "turbo" in the bios, which worked just fine for about a year before hand though i set it to "normal" as part of my troubleshooting the errors the the hdd caused.
    anyway save and exit bios... thats it, bam no POST.

    Any ideas? I've tried resetting the cmos but no change.
    I'm going to strip everything out of the case and try booting with just mobo, ram, cpu, vga but somehow i dont see it working? Have I fried something? and votes what?

    Never mind, I removed the cmos battery for 10 mins and that seems to of done the trick.
