Pc wont boot

By cjr9 ·
i have a vega 3080 with a amdk6 proceesor. I am runnning Win 98. When I power up my system I dont get any beeps and the hd drive processor light(the red one) comes on then goes off, then there are no indicater lights on. Through this whole process it looks like the montior never received a signal. What could the problem be?

Numerous things could be the cause.

Check that all plug in cards and memory modules are firmly seated into the motherboard.

Does the fan on the CPU spin when you turn on the power?
If not, it is possible that the CPU is fried.

If the CPU fan spins, shut down, and remove all plug-in cards except the video card.
If you now boot, one of the cards is bad (most likely the modem).
Shut down, and plug cards in one at a time until you determine which is bad.

If none of the cards are bad,the simplest thing to do at this point, is to start swapping hardware from a known good system.

1. Make sure that all of your cards and memory modules are seated correctly. Make sure that the connectors on the cards are in the slots.

2. Also, is your power supply fan working? If your power supply has stopped working properly, you are not receiving enough power. I've experienced this problem and have resolved it by swapping the power supply. Make sure you swap it out with one of equal power.

Seriously look at your power supply.

you have a power problem. Either your power lead to the main unit is faulty, or you are not getting power to the mobo. Since the monitor is not receiving power either, I would suspect a burnt out processor.
