mother "bloody" board issues update

  peaceful-warrior 23:06 07 Feb 2010

hey guys,

I have a Packard Bell IX9600, couple of days ago, after booting up, my tft says "no signal", so with my limited experience i tested all my components on my friends PC, hard drive, graphics card, ram, all work fine. ( my friends PC works fine with my cables and monitor, so not an issue) Came to the conclusion that it must be the motherboard looked at the sticker, and it says MCP73M04, looking around on the internet seems like and old one, not terribly sure what one to buy as an alternative, if anyone can help, please, please do, as after 4 hrs looking, im none the wiser. :-(

Someone kindly responded early and suggested trying my friends PSU, unfortunately it still doesnt work. (same PSU).

So definitely the motherboard if anyone could point me in the right direction, it would help a great bunch :-)

cheers PW

Presume you're plugging your monitor into your graphics card, so may be an AGP/PCIE slot problem. Is there not another monitor connector direct to the motherboard that will give you basic graphics meantime?

No mention on PB's website click here of an IX9600. They have good information on what's inside your pc if you know what model it is.

Get your serial number (S/N) and type it in to their website.

Presume from your other thread click here that you found which mobo you had and got recommendations. If so, you should mark this resolved.
