Having problems with your AOpen PC Desktops ?

Refusal to display

\015 Hello Aopen Motherboard: i915GMm-HFS DesktopCpu: Pentium M 740 1.73 Ghz (533 FSB)Memory: Crucial CT646AA53E-4FE DDR2 1GbPsu: Seasonic 250w ATX I wonder if you can help me with a problem I\342\200\231m having with the above system refusing to post and display any graphic output (though the M/b led lights and the fans run.I don't get any beep codes). All the parts are new with the exception of the psu. I\342\200\231ve tried it just on the bench without any other ancilliaries (eg hard drive or optical drive and dependant on the onboard graphics rather than using a separate graphics card) and I wonder if the psu (which is elderly) has enough power (even though a Pentium M system has low requirements anyway). I\342\200\231ve tried both VGA and DVI outputs on a CRT and a LCD monitor without any success. The CRT monitor has a solenoid start and this sounds quite feeble which is why I suspected insufficient power. I would be grateful for any advice.Paul [email protected]\015

My Viewsonic VG2230wm refuses to use its native resolution of 1680 x 1050. Whenever I select this resolution, it registers on the computer display settings, but when I check on the monitor display panel it shows that it's actually using 1600 x 1200. Supposedly the monitor is supposed to auto-adjust itself, but it's obviously auto-adjusting right to the wrong resolution. 1600x1200 makes me have to scroll the screen from side to side to be able to see everything.
