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:
- You already tested the board with just the processor and got 3 beeps, this is a good sign that at least the system is not detecting any memory installed.
- The next step is to test the system with just one memory stick, if it does not post, then test each memory slot 1 by 1 and with different memory sticks, if it posts, you should be able to press F2 and get to the BIOS.
- At this point the system should be able to boot and you would need to test the hard drives and possibly
- If you can’t get the system to post or boot and if you have no other motherboard or processor to test, I recommend that you contact support for further suggestions.
