Having Hardware Issues - Can not get the monitor to register
This desktop is not communicating with the LCD screen. Originally I thought the gfx card went and the VGA needed to be plugged into the on board video but I still have nothing. Ive pulled the battery on the board and thought that this might reset the bios settings so that it will recognize the on board ports (in case the owner of the computer had turned off the on-board completely). I still received no signal.
the owner has recently tried to install a new copy of win7 on a new hd, this is when he said he lost the video signal. i think he said he switched the sata port and that is why he lost the video signal..but shouldnt i still be able to see the bios?
I was going to try and just wipe the hard drive and reinstall again..but i cant even see the splash screen so i can boot to my flash drive. anyone have any ideas?
