Monitor and USB port problems
Hey guys looking for some advice...
We have this old Tiny computer, I think it is nearing the end of its life but we would like to keep it going for as long as possible.
Just recently it has started showing a problem where the monitor does not recognise the computer i.e. if the monitor is on (standby) and you boot the computer up, the power light on the monitor remains on amber. If you disconnect the monitor lead the power light turns green and the screen displays some 'can't find signal' message.
Additionally, none of the (2) USB ports will power up the devices off them, leading me to suspect a problem with power to the I/O ports.
The computer itself boots up ok (I think.... it is difficult to tell without the monitor) and the lights come on. I have also had the side off and both fans function correctly as do both CD drives (power available)
Having had a look inside the computer I can see no trailing leads or signs of short/open circuits (no broken components or blackening)
Would appreciate your advice as to what the problem may be, or any other checks to carry out. Also do you think it is terminal as would like to repair the computer as cheaply as possible.
Thanks in advance.
