Pooter won't start up? [Bitsa; Multipart; win98SE]
Hi again, I've got all these used parts left over from upgrades etc and, I thought I'd screw them all together.
The trouble is that, when I switch the pc on, it goes through the start up proceedure but stops after the memory test and then it goes no further. All the parts are from different pcs' but, they should all be in working order.

This is the motherboard; ***********

Any ideas anybody?

May I suggest you not use 'slang words' like pooter/bitsa, you will find many members here are genuine IT personnels and do not like answering to the use of these words.

You may also try posting more information about the parts you have, posting just the motherboard model does nothing to help to find the cause of your problem, even though from your information that all the parts worked before, but with the information posted, you are the only one who know what you have.

Duffy, thanks for your advice, unfortunately it doesn't seem possible to edit the header, I could edit the rest but, I don't know what's in it anyway. I know there's a graphics card in, don't know what type but, I don't think that's the problem. There's no modem or sound card in there so, it can't be that either.
As far as I know, there's only a hard drive, floppy drive & cd rom. I've tried disconnecting all of them except hard drive but, still get the same thing when I power it up.
I hope this additional information is useful.

Try remove all except for the video card, if this fail, then try different memory, then CPU, chances are one of them.
