I’ve apparently borked my computer to the point where it won’t POST just by replacing the DVI cable - and I don’t understand how that is at all possible.
I have a new monitor coming tomorrow, and wanted to see if the very short DVI cable I bought for it is even long enough to use with my current monitor, so I switched the cables round. Before I did that it was a fully working system. No problems whatsoever. Now though, I don’t think the the computer POSTs, I can’t get anything to appear on my monitor, and I don’t know what to do!
I have a P8P67 motherboard which has a DRAM LED light which flashes intermittently red. It comes on about every 5 seconds, and stays on for a second. I don’t know if this is bad, I can’t find anywhere on the internet that explains what the intermittent flashing means, only a continuous red and a flashing red. I’ve tried every combo of RAM stick/RAM slot and none of them helped anyway. The intermittent red flashing might be fine for all I know. I cannot get any beep’s out of it - now I did have to extract the speaker from a computer that hasn’t been touched in about 10 years so it’s possible the speaker itself doesn’t work, but I would imagine it’s just the computer that’s not working. I’ve tried removing the GPU to get beeps out of it but no luck there.
All the fans come on, and I *think* I can hear the HDD starting up. Just no beeps, and no visual.
HELP! What should I do? I have absolutely no idea how to go about fixing this!
Thanks for any help at all!
