I gather on a Sceptre flashing blue indicates no input signal. Are you able to try another monitor to see if the computer is supplying a video output?

I don't quite understand that, are you saying you bought a new motherboard for the system?

So the problem is you have installed the new motherboard, and neither monitor nor TV receive any video signal?

I've moved the topic to the internal hardware forum.

You can have problems with Windows when a mainboard is replaced, but if the basic function of the board is OK you should get a POST screen at least.

I guess you've double-checked that everything is connected up properly, are there normal indications of startup activity, if the board has an internal beeper, do you get any beep indication?

Occasionally (rarely these days) a board is shipped with the CMOS jumper set to CLR, it's one thing to check. If it's not set to the CLR position, you can try doing the clear procedure in case a static zap during assembly has scrambled the CMOS data and set an unbootable state.

Beyond that, if the board never showed video output since installation, you'd really need to start from basics as if building the system from scratch - disconnect everything unnecessary and try to boot with just the CPU fitted and using on-board video if the board has it. If still no output, diagnosis is pretty much limited then to assembly error, PSU, CPU or DOA mainboard. If it fires up and complains about no RAM (beeps), power down & fit RAM, see if POST screen shows, go from there.

What is the make and model of the new motherboard?

 

What was the problem with the other motherboard?

 

When you start the computer do the fans spin and stay on?

Don't hear any beeps? Unless the board has no transducer to create a beep, that suggests things are "running" but the POST is not progressing.

What memory are you using - reading suggests that board was found to be picky about the RAM it would work with. I think at this point I'd be trying to get a POST error by removing the RAM, and see if the board is actually starting up.

 

Although looking at a picture of the board, it doesn't look like it has a beeper - which is a nuisance if so. Do you have a case speaker connected?
