|i have an E machines W5243, I've had it for almost a year.|
Last night, the modem went dead, so I replaced the modem today.
Now the machine won't boot.
The modem wasn't OEM, it was an aftermarket card I put in when I got the machine, since it didn't come with one.
I took the new modem out, and tried again, but still, nothing. The power button lights up, and I can hear the HDD spin up, but nothing shows on the monitor. I have the monitor running on my laptop right now, so I know it's not the monitor.
Last year, it did the same thing when I tried to install a pci sound card. But that time, when I removed the new card, it booted up fine.
anyone have the foggiest idea what's going on with this piece of feces?
