Hi peoples,

Well I'm stumped and need extra thoughts on this please.

I have a Desk Top here which wont boot or even show mobo details on monitor. At first I thought it was the PSU, thats fine. I tried different ram still nothing. I removed all perphiles and disconnected HD rom etc still nothing. There are no beep sounds either. As we speak I'm resetting CMOS but thats all I can think of as of late. I tried another PSU.

Any thoughts?

Is there any activity when you start the computer, fans spinning, LEDs turning on?

If you have the XP installation CD see if the computer will boot from it, if it does hit the Esc key to stop it. If this starts then you either have a problem with the operating system or the hdd. You may need to change the boot order in the BIOS so that the CD-ROM will be the first device.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Do you have a spare monitor that you could test? Also what graphics hardware are you using?
Regards,

Alan.

On board graphics. And have tried another monitor.

I did some more testing last night and I'm convinced its the Mobo. I Believe the system is still under warranty the client was telling me after all that.

Thanks for the input

If you've got a spare video card laying around, you can try that. That'll let you "test" the onboard video by substitution.

If the add-on video card works, then the onboard video is dead. Depending on the cause, it could just be the video that's dead, or there could be other damage to the mobo. In general I recommend to customers that they try it out for a while to see if it does anything funny before investing in another motherboard.
