Help somebody please. My Emachine T2640 took a hit the other night in a storm, my son failed to disconnect the phone line when he unplugged it. The problem is that I have taken everything and tried to reboot by reseating everything one component at a time. I can not get the computer to even post. I have done some research and have figured out that my motherboard is an AM37, it's an AMD Athlon XP 2400+. I did test the harddrive by slaving it into another PC, I ended up having to reformat it to get it going, but I know it works. The fans are working, and everything is getting power in the tower, I do not have video. I am by no means a computer expert, but I am pretty sure that it is my motherboard. My question is can someone please tell me another thing to try before I purchase a new one, or since I'm going to have to get a new one anyway, can someone tell me what type to buy to upgrade. Might as well do that now.
