Hi, I have no beep on boot up, no visual either, thought it was the graphics card so got a new one of those, it worked for five minutes then problem came back. No lights on keyboard, but fan on motherboard etc works. Any help gladly received.

These types of problem can be very difficult to diagnose. The main culprits are faulty motherboard, processor, graphics card, or a loose component.

The first thing I would try is to make sure everything is seated correctly in it's sockets. Check the PCI, AGP cards etc; also check IDE cables, SATA cables and power cables to everything and the RAM. If this doesn't work then try removing all unnecessary components - just have the motherboard, processor, fan, memory, graphics card and connect up only the monitor externally. See if this makes any difference. If so then keep adding one thing at a time until the problem reoccurs and you will have identified what caused it.

If this still doesn't work, try the memory in different slots, also if you have more than one stick of memory try just one in different slots, and try different sticks in case one is faulty.

If this still doesn't work, let us know what motherboard you have and we'll see if there is anything more we can try.
