| My hard drive failed (Seagate Barracuda), but computer was still able to get to a bios screen. I installed a new HD (Western Digital CaviarBlue), the computer turns on and stays on, all fans/leds are working, but my monitor (Element 32 in. flat TV screen) shows no signal and the optical drive doesn't seem to have power and won't open. |
I have checked all connections that I think are relevent and even reinstalled old HD to at least try to get the bios to come up. Same thing happened, no signal to monitor and no optical drive. I read that when you turn computer on, beeps should indicate certain things, no beeps at all are heard.
* The only other thing I messed with is I changed the thermal paste on the CPU/heatsink while I had the case opened.
I am not sure whats specs are needed to help diagnose my problem.
