What is the monitor plugged into? Just the motherboard? Can you get any visuals at all on the screen? If not have you tried a new monitor?

well peeps ive cracked it i left it alone for a while but nothing to do so i thought would have another go at it it wouldnt do the post test so i thought it was the bios battery changed that no luck so i had an extra stick of ram put that in and it booted staright away when i checked the specs it said there was only 256 of ram but there was actually 512 in so its the dimm slot the ram wqas in is faulty so i took the other ram out booted it with the 256 in the other dimm slot and voila it works

thanx for some of the replies
