I have a problem with my desktop PC, it started by taking 1 or 2 attempts at turning it on to get a bios beep and the PC to boot. Once booted however the PC was fine and stable.
But the other day it just wouldnt boot, I got no bios beeps and no video output. I dismantled it and put it back together and now I have found that the pc will boot with no GFX card installed but wont with one. I have tried 2 different GFX cards and get the same problem.
Does anyone know what this could be? Could it be the PSU?
But the LED display shows the booting progress, and I get a bios beep with no gfx card installed. With no monitor I obviously cant tell if its booting properly but I get no beep codes and no error codes on the LED. Which means it should be booting properly.
But with a gfx card installed I get no beep and no LED progression display.
Its not the monitor, as I said the mobo has an LED display on it which tells you when it boots successfully (it loads to 100%). I also get no error beep codes when no gfx card is installed which would indicate an unsuccessful boot.
With a gfx card installed the LED display shows nothing and I get no initial beep.
