my comp wont start all of sudden...
seen alot around on this but nothing very definitive
basically you turn the power on, fans run but the monitor shows no signal and the comp does not boot, there are no system beeps
tried several things including resetting the CMOS, and swapping components with another comp.
tried starting the machine with just fans and mobo connected, no CPU, RAM or graphics, no system beeps no-nothin, just the fans running.
from this i would conclude that the problem is the motherboard, but then i transfered the components from it to a working computer with a similar motherboard ie: i transfered CPU,RAM,and graphics. it ran fine which would also indicate motherboard failure of the first machine.
BUT>>> then i transfered all the components back into the second working machine, which now of course does not work... same problem as the first machine now, and i ran all the same tests as above with all the same results.
I'm unsure what to do as im positive the motherboards got somethin wrong with it (so probably both motherboards) but how did the second computer get damaged? it must have been a component from the first comp, the only different thing is the speed of the processor, the brand of RAM and the graphics card.
ummm dont think there were any surges or anything, dont think problem is related to the PSU (but it could be...)
