Help me…all solutions are welcome. Please read explanation carefully…
Yesterday, my computer system was working as normal and very good. It was raining, so
I turned my system off – regular shutdown. Then proceeded to turn off my surge protector, now the system is off. I return home after 3 hours of rain (not sure if thunder & lightning), attempt to turn on my system but all I get is a black screen - monitor say’s “NO SIGNAL, my CPU fan is running, but I notice that the LCD light on the front of my computer which normally is blinking to indicate activity is a static yellow color – no blinking whatsoever, just a constant solid color. But, it doesn’t appear anything is being accessed…although, I cannot tell since the there is no picture on the monitor.
My system is password protected, but with no video I cannot tell if I am at the screen prompt or not…I have since started and shut down system on numerous occasions, so who knows what screen if any is showing up.
I am running 768MB of RAM (256 & 512 stick), I removed each and booted to the same problems. CD Rom & DVD lights light up as normal.
P.S., the monitor does work because I hooked it up to my laptop for verification.
I also removed my independent Geforce video card and attempted to use my onboard video card and if I recall correctly I still did not get a picture of sorts. Up until yesterday, the computer has worked flawlessly – HDD is fairly new, etc. Any suggestions…
160GB (C) drive with operating system & programs
200GB (F) drive for storage, data, video, etc.
CD-RW drive (D)
DVD Burner (E)
Emachine w2247 --- 1.8GHZ AMD, solid system.
SORRY FOR THE LONG POST…
