Re: Freshly built pc, it will POWER ON, but SCREEN WILL REMAIN off? Can someone please help me?
I have not tried with a single ram, I will try that.
But I find that hard to associate with the graphics card, but Its worth a try!
I know the monitor works because another computer was plugged there before this one, but again I will try it....
Any more suggestions?
I was reading that removing the motherboard battery for 30 mins might fix it?
I am starting to lean a lot on the defective mobo. I bought it brand new, and I noticed that when I received it, the plastic wrap that they are usually surrounded by was gone
Booting with a single ram, I tried with both
removed the power from the graphics card and tried to boot
changed monitors cable...
yes, the monitor is turned on
Is this looking like its the power supply or MOBO?
The power supply is brand new, so I really doubt its that.
I don't even know what happened...... (however I did switch the ram sticks from slots 2 and 4 to 1 and 3
I started pressing all the buttons in my monitor and nothing worked, but I kept on pressing randomly, and it booted!!
This saved me a TON of work!
Thanks for all your help!
