Nothing on screen
Posted on 2003-03-05
I've got 2 PCs here which both refuse to give any screen, not even the BIOS startup screen.
I have one pc which I put a second hand motherboard and CPU in. Both have worked perfectly before so I doubt they are broke as well.
When I turn the power on, everything sound good, hard discs start to spin, as do the CD players (the "busy" lichts on them keep burning though)
but it just refuses to give any sign of life on the monitor.
booting with nothing but the graphic card and memory on it
a new power supply
other graphic card
I am kinda running out of options here so if anyone knows something I could try, let me know.
I also have a other pc just like it, which just had a new power supply cause the old one was broken (according to the costumer) when I tried to put it on, it seemed like the new supply was broken to, so I put a new one on it..wouldnt give anything on the monitor when I put it on without HDs etc. and it wouldnt work at all when I connected the HD.
These problems are out of my league as I am still learning so I hope you can teach me something for the future and give me any ideas of solutions!
