Hey guys,

Been having trouble with an Abit A17 motherboard, am getting no video response,
have tried removing / booting, and then reseating heatsink, CPU, RAM,
Video card, and all power and jumpers.
Am getting m/b error codes 83 and 06.
Lights are on on the motherboard,
still no video response.
Any help provided would be great!

Thanks!

Yes, everything is correct. It's a few years old, so it has been working previously. It was turning off on its own, and it would sometimes have issues turning on; It would restart again before windows would even start loading. So then i tried all the above and now there is no video.

try a different card - the one you have may be dead. or the pci-e slot could be broken, or the southbridge clock. its hard to tell but for now you will have to try a different graphics card. I know that the first thing i see on my computer is a "dos-like" screen for about a second with my graphic cards' information - then the post screen etc afterwards.

I would, it's a bit difficult when you have 3 different graphics cards, and none of them fit into the PCI slot!!

I also decided to get the hard drive and test it in another computer, and it was bsoding before Windows would start to load, so i think the hdd might have something to do with it, but it does explain why nothing comes up on the screen.

Anyway, i bought a bundle of hardware online for heaps cheap, m/b, cpu and ram. Might do some more testing once i get those, but they will probably be taking over the computer lol.

Thanks for your help guys.

Im still open for suggestions if you have any.

Thanks again =)

Hrmm.. Ok, so im not that technical... Is that trying to say that the CPU is not "starting up"?

Im just thinking it's a bit odd, because when i reseated the CPU, i also cleaned it up and added some fresh thermal paste.

And since then there has been nothing come up on the screen. That was the last thing done before it screwed up completely.

*sigh*

I am really stumped with this one.

Did this start after you reseated the CPU ?

Is there a CPU fan power slot on the board, if so are you sure the CPU fan power cord is attached firmly ?

Did you put too much thermal paste on the CPU ?; If I remember right having too much thermal paste is just as bad as not enough. It should look like a sticky film, not a paste, when it's applied in the right amount.

No no, everything is connected correctly, and i didnt put too much thermal paste. I've done it all before.

I think there is no power going throughout the whole motherboard. As the mouse light doe not come on, and its USB, and the PS2 keyboard doesnt have lights either. I think that maybe one of the power thingies on the board might have been broken off but i havent noticed.

Probably just need a new m/b.

or a new power supply?
Also, does your motherboard have 2 different power supply connections? - you may have overlooked one
