Dead PC. Hopes of ressurecting
3 months ago, my pc died.
the story was: I was trying to install a 250GB Hard drive but the system wont recognize this. A Few reboots later.. the bios wont show up at all. I think i fried my pc with a static finger. BLANK SCREEN, NO BEEPS, NO DISPLAY
3 months later, i have a brand new pc
i want to ressurect my old pc so i can turn it into a server.
i was advised to try resetting my CMOS, so i did. when i did that.. i heared 2 beeps from the cpu when i try starting it (better than 3 months ago, i had nothing). so i think that my motherboard or cpu is not fried at all. i tried removing the two ram, switching both rams to test if there is something wrong with the two. nothing happened. i tried it with my hard drive (old harddrive) nothing happened. i havent tested my video card though.. but what do you guys think about it?
im thinking of getting a POST diagnostic card to find out whats wrong.
any advise? do you think getting a post diagnostic card is worth the time/money/effort? or do i have a chance to ressurect this junk at all?
