The other day I was mid-game on my pc and the system failed. By failed I mean the screen wend black and ceased to function. There was no stuttering of sound or video. Upon re-boot attempt I can see the mobo splash screen for about 5-10 sec and even enter bios set-up but the the screen goes black. Ordinarily I would chalk this up to a video card faliure but upon letting the computer run its normal boot course I do not hear any sound that would indicate that it is booting normally. (i.e. windows start-up) I am currently going through hardware in the process of elimination. So far I have:
-Checked cmos battery voltage (good 3.2v)
next I am going to swap video card for an older one then finally swap the psu and cycle memory.
The mobo in question is an ASUS M3A32-MVP deluxe
video ATI 58xx
cpu AMD phenom quad core 9xxx
I am posting here in hopes there may be other things I have not tought of, any heap is greatly appreciated.
Thank you all!
