    First off, this computer was given to me, so its old.

    Asus a7pro mobo.

    Powers up (PLED is lit) but doesnt send an output signal to monitor. (GeForce2 mx400 64mb) Also there is a CD drive, and DVD drive. both will not open. It also seems that the keyboard isnt getting power (none of the "lock" buttons light up) on any keyboard. the mouse gets power (the laser is on)

    the CPU fan is running.

    it wasnt wired when it was handed over and im no expert but i read the mobo manual and i thnk ive got it hooked up correctly.

    OT wat should i do?



    ....im about to pull an office space....

    i would disconnect the hard drive, DVD drive and cd drive and unplug any cards other than the video card. then reseat the video card and the memory and try to boot it.

    do you get any beep codes? does it just keep beeping? does it give a single beep?

    if you can't be sure you connected it properly, then we can't reliably help you.

    That being said, assuming everything is connected properly, it sounds like a bad mobo.

    did you try disconnecting everything other than the video card and memory? disconnect all drives from power and from the motherboard. then, you can pretty much narrow it down to just the memory, video card and motherboard. with nothing attached, you should be able to boot to the bios screen at a minimum.
