|Motherboard = Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H|
4 gB OCZ ddr2 ram
I've had this motherboard for a little over a year and everything has been working great until now. I have made no hardware changes nor installed any new software. The only thing I did was take it out of my apartment for my school winter break and brought it back home. Hooked it up on Friday and everything was working fine.
This is what happened: I left it on overnight because I was listening to music, which I have done many times before. When I woke up this morning (Sunday) and tried to get a little WoW action going on, there were a bunch of lines on the screen, almost like what I see when I start the computer up when it is detecting the hardware, but not quite. At the bottom I saw something about the boot file missing. I didn't pay much attention to it so I can't tell you exactly what it said. Restarted it and then I got nothing, only the no signal message on the monitor.
I shut if off, tried switching cables around, made sure the cables were securely attached and nothing. Took the battery out to reset the CMOS and nothing still. I've read about the power supply unit being a possible culprit, and mine is quite old, but have not tried a new one yet.
Anyone have any suggestions before I try the psu?
Regarding the boot file missing, why would it show that after it was working fine the night before and I didn't do anything to it? If it is the power unit, could it have just given out sometime throught the night?
