Specs: Windows 7
Hey guys, I've got a problem with my monitor/display and I hope it's not a sign of the mobo going bad. My computer all of a sudden decided to freeze up, and upon restart, the monitor won't get a signal, the light stays yellow. All the other components appear to be running fine, all fans spin, and the HDD appears to be running, there's just no display going to the monitor. I've tried two monitors on it and two different vid cards, I've unplugged and rearranged the RAM, and still nothing. Also, for some reason, when it starts up, the DVD drive keeps acting like it wants to spin, and just keeps clicking away. I'm completely stumped, and hopefully this isn't a sign of the mobo going bad. Any help would be great appreciated!

Please leave the specs for your computer.

Do you have on board video? Because you could remove the video card and try that. Also you are going to want to check the capacitors on your mainboard. Is your computer really dusty? You may want to clean the video card slot with some compressed air, then go over it with a cotton swab and some alcohol.

If there's no beeps and you went through the checklist procedure then it's likely the power supply, motherboard or both. Often a power supply will go bad and ruin the motherboard as well.

It's best to swap in a known-working compatible power supply first and see if it works. If you do it the other way and try a known-good motherboard with the old power supply you may ruin that motherboard too.

I suppose it could be the cpu but these things usually work out with it being the PSU and/or motherboard.
