The problem I'm having is my computer will power on, but not boot up. I get no picture on my monitor whatsoever.

I've checked the monitor and it works fine. I've also tried a different monitor and that didn't work either. For the last couple of months, my boot screen hasn't been coming up at all. The computer would still turn on, but the monitor wouldn't receive a signal until Windows was done booting up.

I have tried to boot up with only 1 videocard, thinking maybe 1 of them was dead, but that didn't work.

What steps should I take to isolate the problem?


My hardware:

Windows x64
AMD Athlon 64 FX-60
Asus A8N-SLI SE Motherboard
EVGA GeForce 7950 GT x2 running in SLi
WD Raptor 74 gb
Hiper Type 880w power supply

If u are certain it's not the graphics card, it could be your power supply. Try powering it from a different PSU.

Yup, it was the power supply, thanks for the advice. Power supply was only 5 months old too. :thumbsup:
