I agree with the PSU suggestion though, that’s what it sounds like Maybe you’ll have to just give it a good kick each time you try booting it up. Whether it’s a fault on the MB or something else, I don’t know, but it’s OK now, and that’s what matters. If you have some extra kicking around I would try and put in a stick of a different speed.

k7VM2 Won’t Boot – PC hardware – General discussion – Tek-Tips

Maybe check all your grounding screws and make sure they’re tight don’t overtighten though!! I’ve changed the FSB from to Mh.

Maybe you’ve added something that’s now overloading your psu? My guess is a bit of bad hardware.
ASRock K7VM2, Socket A, AMD Motherboard
Once it does start up OK, it will stay on and work fine. Does AMD have a listing of compatible memory for their processor? It shuts down just at the time the video signal is sent to the monitor. Are the Athlon processors picky vidro which piece of memory its used with? I’ve tried another monitor, no joy. Perhaps that might help troubleshoot the problem a bit more. It will not boot.
The system board maintains a powered state as long as its connected to an active mains supply, regardless of the switch state. Its not the monitor or the power supply like most people have posted. That would explain you not getting any signal to your monitor I had no floppy drive so I stuck an old one in I’d had banging around for a year or two.
I love a challenge, and 7kvm2 learning that comes with trying to sort it!
I have had an Asrock k7VM2 for around 6 months. Went out and bought a new floppy drive and all was solved.
It sounds like a possible short circuit in your motherboard somewhere? You could be right there Chris. Would that be an indication of a short circuit? Reasons such as off-topic, duplicates, flames, illegal, vulgar, or students vidso their homework.

It’s easy to join and it’s free. Whether it’s a fault on the MB or something else, I don’t know, but it’s OK now, and that’s what matters. kv7m2
You’d mentioned you have tried a PCI card too which m7vm2 make a difference in you had adjusted that. My computer would only power up for about a second and then shut down. It sometimes takes two or three attempts before starting up. Can’t put my finger on it but vieeo has happened to me with 3 different motherboards all with AMD processors 2 athlons and one duron. Removal of the floppy drive meant a perfect boot.

I don’t think so. All was OK until last week. The AGP mode is set at default 4X. Any suggestion and push in the right direction will help.
