My monitor is displaying a test pattern. When I press the power button the light turns on, my HDs spin up, my case fan spins up, but my GPU and CPU fans do not spin up. The test pattern does not go away. If I leave it, nothing happens, no startup sound, nothing. Once I've turned it on, I have to hold down the power button to turn it off, like if it was already started up, unlike starting it up regularly where you can just hit the power button and it turns off.

Hi,

A few details please. Age of the system? Fans not spinning could be connections or lost voltages. Can you connect those fans to any other correct voltage source?

The failure of the monitor to change images might indicate that it is not receiving a signal from the graphics card - no fan, no signal, no change in picture.

If you have another power supply you might connect it for test purposes. If there's no change then you could be looking at a bad motherboard.

Keep us posted

Alright, thank you for your input. I managed to fix the problem. Took it apart, put it back together. Something might have wiggled its way loose.
