A hardrive was connected and powered in a PC without the old hardrive present. Issue now: There is no visual, as if the graphics card does not work. Note: The new hardrive was connected to the PC without properly being formated. How do I solve this problem? What are the odds of connecting a brand new non-formated hardrive to a PC without the previous (Master) hardrive present?
I power up the pc and nothing shows up and not even the bios screen shows up as if the monitor is not even connected. The monitor output is on the motherboard and always has been. (no graphics bus-card is installed) Note: The monitor used is in good condition.
All connected cables are correctly placed and are in good shape.
The owner was so fast to connect a new Hardrive without going through the proper protocol needed to change one out.
The Reason for changing the Old Hardrive: The data cable port is damaged.
