Need some help testing
Posted on 2004-11-01
I have a computer that has been used for about two years now. Just a couple of weeks ago, I went to turn it on and found that there is no video output to the monitor. I have since then replaced the video card twice, once with an agp slot video card and once with a pci slot video card. I get power to the motherboard (all fans are on including cpu fan) but nothing out to the video. There are no error beeps from the bios and I can hear the floppy test, hard drives and all. At this point I have also replaced the cpu and ram just to be safe. At this point, I suspect that the motherboard is no good. I just dont want to jump to any conclusions, speaking that this particular motherboard is hard to find. It is a Soyo SY-7VCA 2. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it. Also, if anyone knows where I can find this model board let me know. Finally, is it possible to upgrade mobo and cpu without having to reboot with windows XP?
