My new system (sig) which had been running fine since Friday with no problems, has just died and will not even power on - all I get is one orange HDD light flash when the power line is plugged in, and one blue light flash when I press the power on button - nothing else. I was playing HL2 when it just died. Anything I can do? or is it RMA time?

I'd try pulling everything out, and replacing parts one at a time, starting with the Processor, then ram, graphics card, etc and testing to see if it powers up at all.

also, pull out the ram and CPU, thrun your pc on. if your mobo beeps at you, you are doing well.

System powers w/out RAM & GPU, but no beeping...

good, now try ram, then gpu, see if we can find the problem here.

...nothing happens when I put the graphics card in.

I guess the next step would be to try and find a spare graphics card to see if yours is causing the problem, in my opinion.

I guess, unfortunately this is my first PCI-E system and the SN25P hasn't got onboard video and I dont have another PCI-E card. The SN25P doesnt even have a regular PCI slot so I could check it with my old TNT2.

Usually my old mobos beeped when they were booted w/out a graphics card... but the SN25P doesnt?

I don't have experience with that system, so I can't help you with that specifically, I'm sure there is a shuttle specific forum you can find, maybe on www.amdmb.com. Good luck, I don't know what else I can do to help.

Thanks for the help anyway fastguy.

The fact that your system is powering without ram and not beeping isn't good. I would bet your motherboard is the problem. Try the GPU in a different machine.

Don't have another PCI-E system unfortuantely

What kind of power supply are you using?

It's a shuttle- They come with their own proprietary psu.

350W supply on the SN25P, should be enough for a 6600 Gt alright
