I have a Gateway GT5692 desktop computer. With these Specs
It was given to me by my mother I really want to see what is on it...Pics, Vids, etc...
I'ts still in factory condition. I think she only used it for a few months before something happened, possibly a surge?
I'm not sure & can't ask her now.
The pc turns on, but has no display on the monitor, just a black screen. (yellow power light on monitor) When I unplug the vga cord, the red,blue,etc, thing moves across the screen until I plug it back in. I've checked it on 2 other good monitors. I've tried re-seating & relocating the RAM & I know the RAM is good b/c it's in this PC as I type. I've also tried removing the CMOS battery for 20-30 min to reset it & still...no joy.
I have a Compaq Presario SR5350F that I may be able to use to check some parts if possible. I'm not sure if the video card is removable from either machine. Specs for the Compaq are here...
btw...I've also checked the CD ROM by putting an Ubuntu 10.10 live cd in it & you can hear it spinning, but still no output on the monitor.
