Monitor, Mouse, Keyboard not working... Help!
Hey guys, I was lanning at a friends house today, and was having trouble with my computer (After I shut it down, all it would do was spin the fans for a second when I tried to turn it back on). I fixed that problem by clearing the BIOS, but then had another problem a bit later.
I moved the ram from slot 1&2 to 1&3 (I was trying to run dual memory, because the startup screen was saying single channle - it was working fine with 1&2), tried to turn the system on. It sounded like it powered up normally, but there was no mouse response or monitor response (monitor said check signal). I figured it was the ram, so I moved it back to slot 1&2, and tried it again. Same problem. So I reset the BIOS again, and tried to start her up - same problem. Then I pulled out the video card (BFG 6600GT), and put it back in, same problem. Checked the processor seating, and yet again, same problem.
One thing that might be helpful is that when I turn it on, the lights on the wireless signal sender for the keyboard blink twice, and the optical light on my mouse also blinks twice (albeit faintly), then they do not have any response at all.
Finally, I tried putting in an old stick of ram (known to work in that machine), and had the same problem. I'm at a loss here guys, and I really would appreciate some guidance! Thanks!
