As the title says, my monitor, keyboard, and mouse won't connect on my desktop. I have tried unplugging them all, turning off the computer, removing a powersupply within the computer and readding it, and dusting off everything inside. it appears to be the computer, and not the peripherals, because i have tested and know that the keyboard and mouse work on another computer. Any help will be greatly appreciated, fore this is frustrating me greatly.

Is there any indication that the PSU and fans are working?

 

System manufacturer and model?

I note that you don't indicate that you tried a different monitor.

 

It's pretty hard to tell what is working or what might be wrong...without video.

 

I'd try a different monitor..as a first step..

 Okay, thanks, I'll report back with more info. I have tried a different keyboard and mouse though, would the monitor provide more info than those?

I understand what you mean, but it has come to my attention that the computer may be having a problem booting up, not with those things. in that, should i still test it?

Well...I don't know how anyone can troubleshoot...a computer problem...when they cannot see anything onscreen.

 

I don't understand the basis for your speculation...until you can see something onscreen...whether it's the system screen changing color, the POST screen, or something of that nature...well, I suppose one bad idea is as good as another.  But...logic would seem to dictate starting with whether the fans or anything else show any sign of life...then moving on to whatever is displayed onscreen.  If nothing is displayed onscreen...then you just wind up guessing as to what it might be and guesswork without investigation...doesn't resolve anything, IMO.

 

You tell me...without any visual display...just what would you suggest as the next item that could be faulty? How will you check that out...if your monitor is not working, you have no visual clues?

I tried another monitor, it did not work as well. I tried both monitors on a seperate computer, and they worked, so it doesnt seem to be the monitor
