[P] Fails to boot up

Postby Isabella07 » Mon Mar 31, 2008 20:52

My Scaleo P fails to boot up, the monitor remains completely blank and the PC usually shuts its self down - sometimes after a few seconds, sometimes after a few minutes.

Ok a little short on detail but are there any beeps from the machine whilst trying to boot ?
Have you tried using another graphics card to eliminate GPU failure ?
Is the CPU fan running ?
Did you change anything prior to this issue ?
Learning all the time.

Yes - the beeps would help - http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.cfm?articleID=1223

Last time a similar thing happened to me, it was a RAM failure. I fixed it by removing one DIMM at a time, until the problem went away (and then replaced it).

You may be able to boot off a diagnosis disk - in which case you could try some memory diagnostics.
