My first question is whether or not the BIOS screen appears on boot. That would help narrow down the possible causes of the problem.
If nothing ever appears, including the BIOS screen, I'd start by looking at the graphics card. Try removing the Nvidia GeForce 5200 and plugging the monitor into the integrated graphics off the motherboard. That will tell you if the card went south or not.
If BIOS does appear, I'd first try a repair installation of Windows and see what comes of it. Note that a repair installation should leave your files and programs in tact.
Let us know.
Hello, i'm hoping fo some help...
I woke up this morning to find my moniter appeared not to be receiving any information from my computer. It was blank. I tried it on another compuetr and it worked. I tried another moniter on my computer, it didn't work. I have tried going in in safe mode but nothing.
Computer is making all the right noises with all the right lights.
The previous night i changed a few things around:
- Moved my Virtual Memory to another physical drive and bumped it up to 2560MB.
- I turned off some Services such as indexing and non essential stuff like that.
Award mother board with a 2600MHZ Processor
NVidia Ge Force 5200 vid card
MAudio Delta sound card
Im afraid that is all the info i can give - i can't ask my computer anything else because it won't look at me!
If anyone can help id be eternally grateful.
