Screen is blank and computer won't boot

By erryutkill ·
Hello,
I have an Atlas Microsystem computer with a Biostar (M7MIA) motherboard running Windows 2000. I did not install anything (software or hardware) and I didn't change any configurations. For some reason, out of the blue, my computer would not reboot. It just sits there beeping over and over and there is no signal getting to my monitor either. The system will not go past the POST. Does this sound like my Mobo is fried or is it my CPU...or could it be both? Also, how could I narrow down the exact point of failure? Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot,
Stu

I reseated my RAM and still no luck. Also, the monitor isn't getting a signal. Wouldn't the BIOS flash up on the monitor even if the RAM is bad? You were right about the the signal not changing though. It still has the same beep even without theRAM installed.

The beeps are a post code when screen is black it is usually memory or the video card. Your MB manufacture should be able to provide the exact audible error code (just an example) 3 beeps is a video fault. Try reseating memory and video cards. Make sure you unplug the power cord before attempting to remove any hardware.
