|OK, I took a PS out of my computer that was working perfectly and put it in this one. Tried to boot. No video.|
Put a PCIE video card in the PCIE slot, tried to boot. No video. made sure it was seated and plugged into PS. Also tried both video-outs on card. The fan on the card turned on, but no signal to the monitor. Also tried with additional monitor with same results.
Unplugged everything from the MB and PS except 12V MB plug, 24 pin connector, one stick of RAM, Processor fan, case fan, Keyboard, mouse and monitor. Tried to boot. No video. I know keyboard, mouse and monitor work because I plugged them into a different PC and they are fine.
Switched RAM out with other stick and tried to boot. No video.
I am thinking that the only thing left is the processor, but wouldn't it usually still have video, and just throw up some error? guess maybe not if it is not processing at all. I have never dealt with a dead processor, has anyone else?
