My HP xw4300 workstation (Win XP Pro) was working but the nic apparently was fried. I got a new nic and installed it in an emply expansion slot without realizing that the computer was still on.
Now, the computer comes on (apparently)... there are lights on the Mobo, the fans come on, the HD spins, the cd rom light powers on but no video.
Do you think I fried the mobo?
What I have done so far:
Removed Ram (left only one stick in)
Changed video card
Reset Cmos (it comes with a rest button on mobo
Removed and replaced battery briefly
