pc hardware problem

  nifermac 13:59 24 Nov 2005

Hi I have developed a fault with my pc today was working fine last night after a reformat. Switched it on this morning lights on, fans going etc but no signal to monitor . Tried 2 other monitors another graphics card. Unplugged and replugged everything leads memeory etc. Also no sound when pc boots. From reading some previous posts looks like it might be the motherboard it is a few years old. Is there anything else i can check beofre i go out and get another one. Cheers for any help.

If you do not see anything on Screen at boot at all. check for dead PSU. Lights and Fans do not mean anything you could run them from a AA battery

Agree with woodchip lights and fans but no signal after Monitor and vido card changed then

2 Mobo

Try unplug All HDD and CD / DVD (take some load off PSU) and see if anything appears on screen.
