I am trying to troubleshoot a computer for my customer. When I turn on the computer, I do not get any video or any beeps. The only thing that seems to work is the cpu fan. I have tried changing the motherboard and processor. I have also tried changing the video card, using both AGP and PCI. I have also taken out every component not needed to at least POST. It is an AMD Thunderbird 1200 cpu and an ECS K7S5A Pro motherboard. I need this answer right away!

Have you tried booting from a Floppy? What OS?
I am going to assume that you have tried a different Hard Drive, if not, you should.
It may also be a BIOS issue,do you have the latest (and correct) BIOS?

I can't even get video to see the BIOS or boot to a floppy.

How about the power supply?

Sounds like you have ruled out everything else.

If you have a volt meter, you can check that all the voltages are correct.
Or, just swap it out.
