Default Probelm with new assembled PC

I assembled a Pc with Pentium D 2.66, asrocks motherboard. Every thing
is connected in right way. Front pannel LEDs are working but when i
turn on system nothing display nor even POST screen. there is no
current in keyboard. Pls help me. I am thinking might be Processor not
fitted properly. Also tell me If processor is not fitted properly than
POST screen should display or not. I am going to change the RAM.
Suggestions welcome. Thanx in advance

It sounds like you are out of your depth.

First thing is to identify the motherboard, download the manual from the
manufacturers web site and read it.

The CPU runs the POST code out of the motherboard BIOS ROM. When the POST
runs it usually 'checks' the RAM by default. If the POST doesn't run
changing the RAM won't make any difference.

Have you installed the CPU correctly in its socket? Have you locked the
clamp lever on the socket into its correct position?

Have you set the motherboard jumpers and/or configured the CMOS correctly
for the CPU?

The quickest way would be to get someone to look at it who has a bit more
experience.

If you read your manual for the MB, you will find there is a BIOS jumper
that has to be moved.
Did you do that?

Check the power supply, do you need 110v and it is set for 220v?

Take a flashlight (and maybe a magnifying glass) and look real closely at
how your RAM, CPU, and other cards sit. Make sure the fit is even all
the way, not higher on one side. (I've added RAM or cards many times and
still have to check to make sure.)

You may still need to take the system down to bare bones to make sure
something else is not at fault. (CPU, Video card, RAM)

Oh yeah, one more thing. I have one system that refuses to start and
work properly after hardware changes until I unplug it and plug it back
in.

First thing to check is that the M/B isn't shorting on chassis or standoffs.

check to make sure you have plugged in the CPU power
cable. most of them these days have a small receptical
on the board near the CPU.. its normally not near the other
master MB power connections.

Make sure head sink with compound is squarely on processor. If you have
an air pocket between processor and sink, processor will stop and/or
burn up.

Attention Please:
All those who have 2, turn one in.
All those who are without, draw 1.
Thank you very much.

Heat sink?

Is this the HCF instruction (Halt and Catch Fire)?

It is not a heat sink problem if the computer will not start up at all.

Unless a heat sink problem caused the CPU to overheat and become toast.

Start with the basics only in the system - Graphics, CPU, memory. dont
connect anything else (such as hard disks, cd roms, extra cards etc.)
Check there are no additional connectors on the motherboard for power -
a lot of them nowdays have extra 4 pin connector on the board for cpu
power and will not boot without this. If you get nothing at this stage,
remove all the RAM, it should start beeping (assuming you have a speaker
connected). if it doesnt then the motherboard may be faulty. If you do
get something appear on screen, switch off, add one more piece of
equipment (such as hard disk) and repeat.

Not before POST. This is something more basic.

But didn't he say it *never* started up?

Always a possibility.

Yup. In addition, the simplest configuration
gives you the fewest sources of problems.
