Computer display will not stay on, Power will ?.

helping a friend out, he has a Tiny with a MSI 6340 M/baord AMD Athlon 1.2GHz 100 FSB, WinME, GF2 32 MB AGP x1/x2x/x4 card.

You can boot the computer into WinMe, after about 2 mis from a cold boot the display goes off putting the Monitor into standby. The Computer is still on, but no control can be gained by using the Reset switch on the case. Also the HDD, and other DVD & CDwtr drives seems to be dormant.

I have tried my HDD and it does the same so its not the HDD, i unplugged the CDwtr and the problem still continues but this time I mangaged to get into the Device manager and found a Yellow exclamtation mark against "Programmable interupt controller"

1 thing tells me the Motherbaord is faulty another the 32MB GeForce 2 AGP card.

Has anyone seen or have any ideas on this probelm. I am on holiday and was hoping to sort it out quick, but its bugging me now.

I have illuminated the HDD, DVD, CDwtr, Monitor, PSU & BIOS Settings all ok, cleared CMOS.

Just to try a compatible Graphics Card out when he can get one. could take weeks or days. Eh up my mobile's ringing and its him.

Hopefully it the GF 2 MX 32MB AGP card. Will let you know more and thinks for the call guys.
