PC fails to boot - a new box
CPU - AMD Athlon64 dual core 512Kx2 3800
Motherboard - ASUS M2N-E
Video Card - Gigabyte GeForce 6600 DDR2 256M
RAM - Corsair DDR2 PC-6400(800) dual channel 1Gx2 (2G)
Just build the capationed PC. It failed to boot. The problem is as follows;
Remark: all new components except the video card which was removed from another PC. The said card is working without problem. I put it back to its PC.
- turned on the PC and pressed [DEL] at boot
- if started the BIOS page. But I can't save the settings selected. It only hung on scree after hitting [OK]
- pressed [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[Del] The PC rebooted. Same problem reoccured unable to save BIOS. Pressed [F5] - default setting, with the same result, unable to save only hanging on screen
- pressed [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[Del] again. PC failed to boot with a dark screen resulted.
I have to turn off the power, allowing the PC standing a while (about 20 min). The PC can be booted again. However the same problem reoccured.
I suspect the problem coming from the floppy drive. I put a working floppy drive from another PC on this new box. Problem remained the same.
Please advise what will be the possible cause. Reset button on PC has no function. TIA
