I have a Packard Bell tower with a MCP73VT-PM motherboard. It is about 4 years old
I turned it on this morning as normal. The fans started and I heard the HD click as normal for about 2 seconds, however, there is nothing showing on the monitor and the computer does not boot. There are no beeps.
I tried another monitor - still blank
Swapped the memory around - still nothing
Took the memory out altogether - Got a long beep (so I assume motherboard is ok)
Reseated connections - still nothing
I am suspecting the graphics side of the computer which is integrated. My question is this, if the graphics chip packed up, would the computer not boot? or would it still boot?
I'm trying to borrow a PCI card to test if the video has gone.
