Default new parts = problem

Ok got my new parts in...

ECS A780GM-A AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI ATX AMD

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800

Using same case and PSU and Vid card as in my sig

Turn the PC on and it stays on, but no signal to the monitor. Light is orange - typical blue if there is a "connection". BIOS doesn't appear either. WinXP Pro...

I CAN turn the PC off with the power button which I couldn't before - the cause for the new parts.

I see the board isn't take my sig...so:

Antec P160
Antec TruePower 550W PSU
Abit AN8 SLi
AMD 64 3500+
CORSAIR (2 x 512MB) DDR 400 (PC 3200)
eVGA 7800GT
Maxtor 16MB 250GB HDD SATA150
Seagate 8MB 250GB HDD SATA150

Do you get any beeps at start-up?

Since that board has onboard video, you may want to connect your monitor the the onboard VGA port and disable the onboard video in the BIOS.

Good news...bad news...

The "no screen" problem was the memory needing to be in DIMMS 3, 4.
I was able to boot to windows...inserted the cdrom that came with the mobo to get the audio/ethernet drivers. It asked to reboot...which I did...got the bios, then winXP splash screen for about 3-5sec...then BAM screen goes blank/black and NOTHING...it just sits there. Won't boot into windows now.

Inserted the winXP disc to try a repair...waiting for the past 10mins on the part that says; Examining 76294 MB Disk 0 at Id 1 on bus - on\wid atapi...
It finally went thru, gave me a DOS looking window (I never did a REPAIR). it asked which windows I wanted to log into - chose the option and entered my PW. Then it went to a e:\windows

I just typed exit and let the PC reboot - back to it just sitting at a blank screen after about 2secs of seeing the WinXP splash screen.

I booted to the XP cd for the repair yes, but on reboot I took the cd out. Got the same thing as I did when it asked for a reboot after installing the drivers for the mobo. I get the winXP splash screen and then blank/black screen nothing else.

You put new parts in, windows will not boot because of it. You shouldve backed up your info before upgrading your PC

Just boot into safe mode and remove the drivers.

I couldn't because the old mobo died...

I'll try the safe mode part, thanks!

well the repair and safe mode options didn't work, so I decided to take the leap/dive and do a format and re-install of windows.

Noticed with the last few reboots that before it got to windows splash screen it was saying...

Secondary Slave Hard Disk Error

Guessing that's one of my IDE drives...at least I'm guessing at this point. I should know more once i get into windows. I disconnected and reconnected all the drives - IDE and SATA, but same error. I didn't try and disconnecting the IDE slave yet and see if the error still occurs or not.

UGH the problems continue. Successfully installed windows, but now after a fresh install it just sits at the windows log/splash screen. Been sitting there for 15+mins now.

Default Re: new parts = problem

try booting with only your master drive and see if that works you may have a bad hard drive

or the jumper on the slave drive might not be set properly, is it set as slave, CS, or master...? a wrong jumper setting will definitely cause problems...

Default Re: new parts = problem

the whole no video thing you first stated...I have had this problem many times with different computers, usually I just take out what I put in and redo it carefully. I doubt its a harddrive problem, but sometimes you need to reinstall the OS if you add a lot of new parts,which you have done. Put back your old stuff if you still have it, then backup your stuff and reinstall windows on the new hardware. This may help. Although in some cases i seriously have just shut my computer off for a few hours and when I restarted it, it worked.. idk though. Give it a shot

well I disconnected the slave IDE drive and didn't get the error so I guess the slave drive is bad.
The jumper settings I never changed from before...I believe it's set on CS.

plugged the secondary HDD back in and I can hear a slight "ping"/"click" from it on boot up at bios, then it takes forever to boot into windows. Unplugging the drive and it fires into windows very quickly. Guessing that drive is toast.

Other then that I love the new parts ;-) shame I lost a drive in the process.

Now on to pricing out the core i7!
