It's more likely to be a motherboard issue than monitor or cable. But since monitor and cable are so easy to replace, why not convince yourself?
When sure of the problem, replace the motherboard. if the new motherboard supports your current CPU and RAM, it's not so very expensive, but if it's not exactly the same type you'll hve to reinstall Windows.
I've been pretty worried about my computer's health lately since it Blue Screened that it had a missing/corrupt kernel and it's been acting up even before that. Everytime I try to turn it on, the monitor just shows a "no signal" sign and a black screen afterwards. It usually turns on after 2 or 3 resets. I'm not quite sure if it's a monitor, VGA cable, or a motherboard (since I don't have a dedicated GPU) issue. What should I do?
Here are the specs of my PC:
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 2.8 GHz
MB: ASUS P5KPL-AM
3GB of RAM
Thanks in advance, guys!
