What the BLEEP!

by SpareParts2 / January 10, 2010 1:25 PM PST

Recently I booted my computer and the monitor would not display. I cleaned the entire unit. I hooked the PC to a different monitor, and still nothing. I replaced the video card and still nothing. I replaced the CMOS battery and still nothing. The light on the motherboard is green, I am sure that all the cables and components works correctly. I am unable to use the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speakers connected to the monitor. What could be the problem? Is there a simple or any solution that does not involve buying a new computer?

Any hard drive activity?

When you turn it on, can you tell if it's actually trying to boot up? Is there evidence of hard drive activity either from an LED or audibly? How about all fans including the one in the PS. Do they come on? If not, it could be a power supply problem. If you're sure all power is there, you might want to try reseating cables, PCBs etc.

Green light indicate you have the 5V there.

Can the cdrom tray open and close (indicate 12V)? Sorry to say, but no display can indicate anything (except maybe the video card so far..in this case).

Also, have you tried different cables to connect your monitor to PC?
