Hey guys. This morning I went to go turn on my PC and to my dismay, it did not boot. The computer powers on, but the monitor stays in power saving mode. No bios, no windows xp loading screen, nothing. What I have tried is to hook a working monitor up to my PC, but it still did not work(stayed in power save mode). I also have cleaned out the inside of my PC to make sure it was not over heating in any way. I also triple checked to make sure everything was hooked up correctly and securely. I am really lost as of what to do next. The specs for my PC are:
Gigabyte S-Series MA78G-DS3HP Mother Board
AMD Athlon X2 64 6000
Power Supply ATI Coolmax CXI Series 500W
WD 160 GB HD
(Gigabyte) ATI Radeon HD 4650
4 GB RAM
Windows XP Pro
The monitor which I was using was just an out-of-the-box monitor I recieved with an older IBM computer.
IBM E74 monitor
I did start a windows update last night and I had fallen asleep before it finished. Could this may have cause some sort of hard drive corruption? Or is this some sort of video driver problem? Totally stumped.. Any help is appreciated!
