No monitor signal, please help

by Stevinium / February 8, 2005 11:57 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.

You didn't say if your pc has onboard video! Did you have to remove a video card to install a new one? If everthing
is OK you should hear 1 beep! John
