I have been reading similar problems to mine and have not been able to find a solution. Perhaps someone will remember a solution I was unable to find or perhaps shed light on a new solution.
Here is my Comp Specs:
1.5gb ddr ram (2chips: 1g, 512mb)
Asus P5P800 socket 775
Intel Pentium 4 3Ghz CPU
Soundblaster Audigy PCI Card (Most recent hardware install has never caused problems [That I know of])
Here is my problem:
I was playing World of Warcraft, I clicked "Exit Game" as I usually do to return to Windows when finished and powered off my monitor to leave for awhile. As I was leaving the room my computer powered off. (I do not know why). I returned to my computer and attempted to turn it on and nothing happened. I turned the power off at the switch on the rear of the case, waited for the charge to expire, then switched it back on and tried to power up. This time my case turned on, my harddisks spun, and my DVD drive is powered and can be opened/closed. All the lights on the case are on yet I get NO Signal to the Monitor
First I figured this was my video card so I took it and put it in another machine and it works Fine.
Secondly I figured it was the monitor so I took that and tried it on another machine. It also works fine.
Secondly I removed power to All my components excepting the Video card to attempt to get the POST screen at the very least from the Mobo. And nothing, no signal to the monitor.
I attempted to minimize the ram to a single chip, I tried both my chips and still no signal to the Monitor.
Can anybody shed light on this issue before I have to go out and spend hundreds of dollars on a new Mobo/CPU?
Thanks in advance.
