    My 2.4 ghz P4 and Intel Motherboard ( D845GEBV2) seem to be having issues. They power on, but I get no video. I get no beeps either. Even when ram is not installed, I still get no beeps. Anyone know what could be wrong? I have 1 stick of 256mb ddr in it right now...all was working fine a few weeks ago, and now nothing...

    nope, its the stock processor and ram...


    also wanted to know if PC 3200 ram is backwards compatable with this motherboard... the motherboard says it can take PC 2100- PC 2700....

    I have some space PC 3200 ram to test with if it works with it...

    If you are not getting the "bleep" P.O.S.T. (Power On Self Test) you sure have a problem. Make sure the ram is seated properly.

    but the motherboard should still beep if there is no ram... like 3 beeps or something... if there is faulty ram, it should beep 1-3 times.
