Recently travelled to a foreing Country??? Shipped the above desktop computer to my location. when it arrived
I connect it up as normal, power goes to the processor fan and HDD , and to all appearences it seems normal, except the the monitor is dead blank, just as if the computer is not turned on, I have two graphics cards installed. One is a chip built into the motherboard and the other is a banshee graphics card Voodoo, i have tested both cards, got the same result, even removed the Voodoo card, still got the same result, power is going to the monitor , and so i guessed its either the HDD or the MB. I looked at the board ,but do not see any cracks, checked the seating of ram , CDRW, DVD Ronm drive, even the chip looks like it is in place, so really do not know what to do, Any ideas??? will recheck this site in 12 hours  time, Billeng

ditto on Sorgie... sounds like a voltage issue.  Does the computer "sound" normal?  In other words, does the system sound like it's going through all the normal steps for booting, or does it stop after a few seconds??

Is the power supply voltage switch on the back of the case set properly (120 vs. 220)?

Pull the video card and reseat it. It may look correct, but may have shifted enough to cause the problem. Also reseat (pull and re-install the memory.

Are you getting any beeps at boot-up?
