My wife went to use her pc and found the screensaver frozen. After rebooting, the video ouput apparently just stopped working. The monitor doesn't even recognize that it is hooked up.
I hooked the pc up to multiple monitors with the same result. I put both master and slave hard drives in another pc and both booted up fine.
My assumption is something strange has happened with the video, since everything else seems to be working. But I put in a new video card and it made no difference. (This pc has the video ad audio built into the mother board.)
I'm somewhat at a loss because nothing even shows up on a monitor for me to try and figure out what's going on. It must be a physical problem other than the hard drives.
If it is the video, why isn't the new card fixing the problem?
If it is not the video, what else could it be?
Any advice or solutions?
(Another small thing we noticed is that the computer no longer beeps shortly after being turned on.)
