|I recently acquired a Dell Precision 530 desktop, and I have a problem. I don't get any video on the monitor. No Dell Logo, no BIOS, nothing. I've tried all 3 monitors, all that I know work, and no difference. I've tried multiple AGP video cards that I know work, still no difference. I don't have any PCI cards to test. The system was functioning a few hours ago, but then I got no display after I shut down the computer. I was using SpeedFan to monitor temps while the computer still worked, and the peak was 132 Degress F. But, even though there is no video to the monitor, the system boots up fine, I can press F2 and the computer will respond, but with no video. The CD Drives wake up, all fans power on, and the hard drive spins up. The num lock and caps lock keys respond. All diagnostic lights are green except for light D, which is orange. The specs are:|
2 Intel Xeon Processors at 1.7 GHz each
2 GB RAM
230 GB Hard Drive
Windows XP Professional SP3
Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 (one of the cards I have used)
The video cards did work before, I could boot to Windows, but now none of them work. I have reseated the RAM. Any help is appreciated,
