    I have a S2895 which does not boot (no video, no beeps), and gives code
    4Ch on my POST card. (Manual says "Shadow video BIOS ROM" - which isn't
    very helpful)
    Does this imply a faulty graphics card, or a faulty motherboard?

    : Does this imply a faulty graphics card, or a faulty motherboard?
    Neither, in my experience, although I did not have a
    POST card (whatever that is?)

    My no beeps/no POST experience was due to the memory. I
    had Infineon 512MB PC3200's, and the board was silent. I went
    through a board RMA, a PS RMA, three video cards and finally,
    I bought a working, populated, MSI board on ebay. Using the
    MSI board, I was able to verify that everything worked on the
    MSI board, but the memory was a no-go on the Tyan board.

    I finally purchased from Samsung memory from the Tyan
    "approved memory list", and all was well (well, except for
    my temper, and bank account...)

    Hardware reset?
    Button on motherboard, somewhere, about a chipset.
