No monitor signal from Blaster PC

by Stevinium / February 8, 2005 11:44 PM PST

I have a Blaster Pc by empac and all of a sudden I have no monitor signal. I tried a known good monitor and still nothing. Next I bought a new agp video card and still nothing.
I swapped it out for a pci video card and still nada.
Is this a motherboard problem.
The computer seems to boot up ok with no error beeps but I'm not sure what to do next.
TIA for any help.

Does it give a single beep

Did it always give a single beep when working properly??

Your substitutions sure make it sound like an unusual problem. Bad CPU, memory should give beeps, also bad video [which you eliminated well]. Only other guess is Power Supply, with no good reason.

Could be bad BIOS or battery, but your "seems to boot OK" kills that idea.

This problem is a lulu. Be sure to let us know what the problem was when you solve it.

After changing the mb everything is fine. I found an old mb in my basement from an old comp. I hooked everything up and it works.
Thanks All

Ray I only posted it twice because I thought maybe I posted in the wrong forum
