take it you have an additional PCI graphics card as well as integrated graphic on your mother board? and that you plugged your monitor into the intergrated port - have u taken your pci graphics card out???
what makes u say your pci graphics card wasn't sending messages to your monitor other than the monitor wasn't coming on??
are u able to enter the bios?
and does the system boot up?
and have u taken out all addition pci cards and disconnected all external cables and devices?
Hello, I think I have an idea of what is wrong, but I'd like to know what other people think the problem with my computer not booting is. Today my mom told me she was playing around with the wires in the back because the LAN cable was out, but it was only the cable modem restarting. Then the computer suddenly turned off. When I got home, I tried to turn it on, but the monitor wouldn't turn on (it turns on automatically along with the comp), and there would be no beeps. So, I though at first I could atleast see if there was a message telling me what was wrong. But my video card (PCI) wasn't sending any signals to the monitor to turn on. So i switched it to the integrated video port, and that worked, but then the computer screen has these green and purple lines across the screen in certain spots all the time. So suspecting the RAM chips, i took one off, then the other, then both. Again, no beeps.
So, I'm assuming the motherboard is fried, but from hearing this, is there any other opinion that anyone may have? Thanks for any suggestions!
