Here's my system:


Asus Sabertooth z87 motherboard


Gigabyte GTX 970 SLI

Samsung EVO 840 SSD (main drive)

SuperNova G2 750W power supply


Now, my computer was running fine ever since I built it about 4 years ago until now...


Before I begin let me say that it's been raining hard these couple of days here in Dallas and i don't know if there was a power surge that messed the computer up. I was not here during the 5 day period in which the PC 'died', I was out of town so I can't tell you much info regarding that


Issue: No display on monitor


Things I've tried:


Use different monitors

Use different cables. Even went from using DVI to HDMI and vice versa

Removed all components from the PC except for the essentials and tried booting it

Tried booting PC from the on board gpu slot

I've removed the CMOS battery for minutes and nothing

Tried booting with only 1 stick of ram

Removed the CPU and reinstalled it


So when I boot the PC, everything seems to be booting as normal; the fans spin, my GTX 970 cards all light up, my external devices power on (mouse), except for the keyboard?? and yet I still get not signal on my monitor(s).


Any ideas?

I can imagine that your system could not do away with static charge from the power outage, unplug from the wall and hold the power button of the computer in for a period of time - this will empty the power supply unit which in turn eliminates the static charge. It is possible that you have other problems, this should be tried before all else.

What's a good time to keep on holding the power off button? I've tried for about 2 minutes and nothing.
