  1. Hi

    I've got a problem with my CPU

    Whenever I switch on my computer,
    I push the POWER ON button,
    the CPU powers up,
    the harddisk and cd drives all power up,
    then everything comes to a standstill (all lights still on)
    There's nothing on my monitor.
    Monitor still in standby mode.

    then i will have to press the RESET button,
    then my bootup can continue.

    anyone can help me with this problem??

    Hmm can you tell us more specific?

    I mean this could happen if your monitor jacks are plugged out,
    Graphics card damaged, heatsink installed wrongly, Some other components are plugged out. Even the mainboard battery is exhausted. btw the problem should not be the switch, otherwise nothing will happen if switch is spoilt...

    try to write more about your system such as system specs and when is this thing started?

    Everything is all fine.
    After I press the reset button,
    my computer works fine as normal.
    so i don't know where the problem might be.
    this problem happened suddenly so i really dont know what might have caused it.

    my system specs.
    P4 2.6c
    MSI 865PE Neo2-S (MS-6728)
    NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200
    Monitor Philips 107T (107T2)
    USB Sound Blaster Audigy 2 NX
    Maxtor 120GB SATA
    Kingston K 256MB x2 (PC3200 DDR SDRAM)
