i picked up an emachines t2482 from my uncle to take a look at while he was on vacation. he kept getting errors on start up. when i got the computer to my house it would not start at all. i tired 2 different moniteos but the screen just stayed black. i even tried putting in an ati card i had in another computer in but that didn't work. it worked so i could at least see the start up at his house with the monitor that came with it. he is gone until the end on the week so i can't get his monitor to try it out. is there anything i can do to get another monitor to work
the cpu fan spins. i can hear the hard drive spin. the hdd light comes on. the cdrom lights flash like normal bootup. i hear one beep when i first start it. i think the power button has a backlight to it but i don't see it light. i am thinking something wrong with the motherboard
