Going to give info then say step by step what happened.
PC is super old and it has a Geforce 7100GS and windows XP home.
First, it got this blue screen
So I replaced the nv4_disp.dll file, then downloaded new drivers. After this the PC was working 100% fine, until I restarted it. It then had weird pixellation issues popping up here and there, other than that. It ran fine. I then restarted it then selected it to run on "IGP" i believe to see if it was the GPU failing. IGP is on board graphics from my understanding. After this, I tried turning on the computer then it immediately just had a blank white screen, no cursor, nothing. Literally just a blank white screen. This was before bios and everything, nothing happened after either. Then later after restarting it a few times, now it just turns on for a few seconds, I hear the fans, then the fans slow down to a stop then I just hear a tiny fan(which I assume is the PSU fan, no CPU, or GPU fan is running I think) but the monitor or anything doesn't turn on, no BIOS appear or anything, just black screen. Although the mouse laser is on so the mouse has power. Wondering what the issue is here, anyone have any experience with this issue?
Also, I want to set it back to using the GPU in the PCIE slot, but I cant since the PC won't even boot after what I explained above. (Turns on, lights and fans, but fans slowly go to a stop after over a few seconds.)
All help is appreciated! Person who helps me solve this will not regret it If you have any questions I check this every 10-30 minutes. Thank you all, once again.
EDIT: The case is very weird/old, and can only take the top off, to just see the PSu and cables, so can't really see anything on the inside. I assume I can un screw everything to get the side panel off though.
Also, i build computers here and there, but seriously have never seen a case like this.
