Well, almost a month ago i was just photoshopping and my PC restarted itself, but wouldnt boot. It just showed a black screen. After messing with it for a while i decided it was the motherboard that was messed up, since the monitor worked (tested) and the GFX Card is new plus i havent touched it since it was last working (when comp worked
). I got a new motherboard and put it in, hooked it all up and it still wont work...I'm thinking its the CPU. Also when i looked at the CPU chip, on the golden dots that you put on the pins in the mobo, 1-2 of them were a greyish black but i think that was just the Arctic Silver 5 thermal Paste..Could that be the problem? I turn on the PC and it sounds like its all coming on, eveyrthing spins up, the monitor turns on it just shows a black screen. Sounds like a CPU problem IMO but i dont know much about that.. Can anyone please help?
Also please note i dont have the speaker that beeps on errors when u turn PC on..I decided to trash it since it was hooked into the PC by magnets...Magnets = bad
...Although when i turn it on it does make 1 small beep thats very quiet, almost sounding like it comes from the HD but im not sure.. If you can please help, reply here.Mod Edit ~ e-mail addy removed to protect the member from evil spam bots.
