Actually, when the pc boots up, the screen freezes at the BIOS image, which says to press DEL to run setup and Tab to view the BIOS POST screen.
When I press the Delete key, I get the following screen:

AMIBIOS(c)2007
ASUS P5GC-MX/GBL ACPI BIOS Revision 0404
CPU: Intel (R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU [email protected]
Speed: 2.20 GHz Count:2

Entering Setup......
Press F8 for BBS POPUP
Press ALT+F2 TO execute ASUS EZ Flash 2
PC2-5300 Single Channel Mode
Initializing USB controllers.. Done.
1016MB OK

Auto-detecting Pri Master...IDE Hard Disk
Auto-Detecting Pri Slave...ATAPI CD-ROM
Pri Master: HDS728080PLAT20 PF20A2AA
Ultra DMA Mode-5, S.M.A.R.T CApable and Status Ok

***************************************************
After that the screen freezes and stays up like this. Can someone help me of what is the main reason behind getting these display messages. Also I had tried to re-install Windows XP from the installation CD. But the CD was not being read and the screen remained as upwards.

Use the Hitachi Drive Fitness Test to check the hard drive for errors > SimpleTech Legacy Downloads | Index files
Down load the CD image (2,578 K) from the above link burn to a CD, boot from the CD and run the test.

The sticker inside my CPU is D865GSA.
The motherboard is same as in the previous thread:ASUS P5GC-MX/GBL

@Wrench97: I will try the one you mentioned. But I dont think it's going to read that bootable cd now, because I tried to make a bootable CD to install some other software, it was not reading it. I''ll still try it.
Thanks,

This seems to be before the hard drive so I would try resetting the bios to optimized defaults. If you press "DEL" repeatedly after presing the power button until you see "entering setup", there should appear an easy way to reset to optimized default settings then press "F10" key to change and try to restart.

Ok,

@Wrench97: I have tried to load the DVD into the DVD drive, but the CPU does not read it at all and cannot access contents from the DVd.
@Rich-M: I have tried what you suggested but cannot find anything to reset to default settings. The screen remains as it is.

As from my part, I checked the following:
(1)Removed and replaced back the RAM chip into a second slot. The screen appeared same on boot up.
(2)Removed battery and cleaned it and replaced it back. Nothing happened on boot up.
(3) Checked all the capacitors on the motherboard; well every thing is ok; none blown up nor broken.

Still nothing happens. I guess the last thing to do is check the hard drives if ever, Could I know how to do it?

Thanks a lot!

Find someone who knows how to access the bios, that should be on any screen in the bios as an option.

Thanks everyone for all of your brilliant tips
