So last night iTunes needed to update drivers for my wife's old iPhone. That seemed to fail and windows said it must restart to resolve the issue. When attempting to reboot, the blue screen appeared saying we're sorry, windows encountered an error and must restart....etc,etc.". When it rebooted, the display did not come on and the screen just said "monitor going to sleep". I found this odd so I let it sit there for 5 minutes, nothing. I powered down the pc and unplugged the power and let it sit for about 3-4 minutes. I plugged it back in, booted it up, same issue. The pc seemed to restart maybe 45seconds -1 min after, but no display. I turned it off again, and replaced the video card with another... same problem, no display.
I then removed the case and re-seated all of the devices inside (hdd, ram, video card, cmos to reset BIOS). The result was the same upon plugging it back in. After that I figured somehow it was the motherboard and HDD, so I ended up ordering a new one which will be here shortly. But I'm curious as to what others think it could be?
Thanks for your input!
