My screen suddenly went blank. The little green light turned orange. Tried a different working monitor off aanother computer...still the same. Tried a new cable...still the same. Bought a new graphics card..Radeon 8500...still the same. What else could have failed please? Anyone any idea? Win xp. P4 with 4gig ballistix ddr500memory. Asus p5x motherboard. This system has been brilliant since built with no problems. Thanks Jane
Thanks for reply blink I will try that when I get home this evening. What does the system memory chips have to do with the graphic card output though? I presume you are on about the Ballistix 1 gig memory chips on the motherboard? That is the one thing I have not done. I pulled all the connectors off and reseated them though. Thanks again will post tonight after I have tried it. If that does not work what then? Does it mean my little puter has died?
ok I give up on this. I have tried seating the memory and even trying 1 piece at a time. Tried a new card, new hard drive, new cmos battery, new memory, 2 new graphics cards still don't work. I have found when i changed the graphic card it briefly showed the desktop but then froze. Then when I rebooted I lost the screen again. Time for the bin I think. Whats a decent spec new compter?
