Stumped! PC will not recognize any monitor- Help!!

by DSHTE5 / April 23, 2013 2:37 PM PDT

I have an HP Pavilion p6320y that will not recognize any monitor. I have tried HDMI, VGA and DVI connections. I've added a new graphics card and still nothing. It powers up, fans spin, HD light comes on. I've tried reseating basically everything, checking all connections, etc. Nothing looks abnormal on the MB.

Here are my specs:

MB- Pegatron MZN7B-LA
I have integrated Nvida g-force 9100
AMD Phenom 2 X 4 820 quad core processor
8 GB DDR3 memory
Win 7 64 bit OS

Please let me know if you need anymore information. I am at a total loss! Is it my MB??Please HELP!!!

So the monitors work on other PCs?

If so that points to a machine failure and not much more. It looks fairly new so call it in for warranty?

Unfortunately the computer is about 2 years old so it's out of warranty Sad

Now you have choices to make. The symptom as it stands tells use this PC is dead, but little else. Did you try it without anything but the monitor? Some PC's don't boot if certain USB things are plugged in. Some don't boot if the CMOS battery is low or the reset button is shorted. There are a few hundred things it can be but your PC repair skills may be tested when you hit a dead one.
