Once I had that happening, but at least mine did a beep... it was the RAM was not properly placed. In the POST screen does it detect everything? As HDD etc? or it doesn't give you a chance to take a look at it?

My boss fixed it after I left, though. Turns out it was a bad IDE cable to the hard drive, works almost perfectly now. Every now and then it gives me an error during POST saying "Hyper Transport sync flood error occurred on last boot. Press F1 to continue." It'll keep doing that on every boot - warm or cold - until I reset the CMOS. Then it'll be fine, and eventually come back after a while. I've read things about this on the Internet, and they all seem to be with the MSI K9N series motherboards. Some guy said that he called MSI, and they don't even know.

Hyper Transport sync is a feature of Athalon. The couple of times this has happened to me, I just set the timeouts higher. Look in your bios settings under advanced and you should find the settings.
Oh, as a FYI, if you can see anything at all other then a blinking cursor on the screen, POST is already done. POST finishes its tests before the CPU becomes available to the BIOS.
