Hey guys! This is my first time to post so excuse any mistakes i make. I turned on my PC one day, it is an IQon pc, and the light will not flash! Im guessing it's to show the hard drive activity, and i must have none! The power light is on and sometimes it makes a really loud fan sounding noise. But the screen is getting no signal, even when plugged in! I just don't get it! I hope this can be solved without having to replace a hard drive or something because im having some financial difficulties and it's very hard to buy a new one. It used to say OC failure when it was booting up, but i just ignored it because it worked when i continued, but how foolish was that? Now it's not working at all!

Do you have a graphics card installed? It sounds like a possible motherboard issue. If you aren't getting any notification lights (i.e hard drive activity light) but here the fans running loud typically it calls for a motherboard replacement. Depending on the age of the computer the price can vary.

Hello and welcome to the forum!

I am thinking power supply.
I dont have time to research it right now but I have never heard of IQon.
Is the system in the US or overseas?

"It used to say OC failure when it was booting up"
Can you explain that a little more?
In the beginning there was the command line.
