Hello, I'm having some trouble with my computer. I have Intel DH55TC Motherboard and i3 processor.
When I power on my computer, the LED glows on my motherboard and I get one beep (normal; probably indicates successful POST). But after that I do not get any display. Sometimes it restarts after about 10-15 seconds. The fans and heatsink keep running. I have tried removing all components including swapping RAM Module positions, and cleaning processor, heatsink, harddisk, checked all cables and power connections. The computer used to work fine and worked well for over four years!
Any help would be appreciated.
That is a good question,
I would need more information in order to provide some more troubleshooting.
Please give me the complete system integration, include everything like the processor model, memory and graphics card.
Thanks for the reply.
PSU- iBall SMPS LPS 223 - 400 ATX
Motherboard: Intel DH55TC
Processor: i3 (Unfortunately cannot recollect the exact model number. I had purchased this several years ago;)
RAM: Transcend 4GB x 2 | ZION 2 GB x 2 (Tried using (0+1)* combinations of these RAMs).
HDD- Seagate SATA 500GB
Graphics card- None; onboard Intel graphics.
I could have just used dxdiag to find the model number of my processor, but since it refuses to boot, I'm unable to do so.
System worked well for over ~3-4 years.
Please keep in mind that the only sure way to test a faulty motherboard or processor is by swapping them with known working components. At this point it is too soon to consider a faulty processor and before considering the processor we would assume a motherboard problem.
These are the steps I recommend you do to test your board:
