My son stoopped playing a game and started moving his mouse. The mouse started moving slow then shut down. I started the pc back up, fan came on, hard drive started and kept on running, but no video from graphics card or on-board video. I belive the motherboard is bad. It is an e-machine T2260, 2200+ AMD Anthalon with an FIC AM37 motherboard. Help

Monitor is plugged in, so I am thinking that it is my motherboard.

I do not even get a start up screen, so I am having problems even being able to see to troubleshoot.

i dont know what kind of monitor you have, but
by bklynrickel / July 25, 2006 9:53 AM PDT

i have an lcd flat screen.

in some instances i have not had an image because my cable was not appropriately connected to the back of the monitor. forgive me, but i just wanted to make sure you checked that connection as well as to the computer.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
