...badly, thats how it turned out.
Badly In the sense that theres still no improvement
Just to re-iterate my problem: Computer powers up with working fans, DVD-ROM, Keyboard and Mouse, but screen stays blank (my tv actually states "no signal"). Makes a solitary "beep" as soon as powerd on. I know TV and VGA cable work because of testing with my laptop, and used to work before with this computer until i cleared out some dust.So I changed the motherboad (Intel 845GV to a IBM branded intel 845G)- no video, as well as:
new cpu ( P4 2.4Ghz) - no video,
added a graphics card (Geforce Ti4600) - no video,
new RAM module (Kingston DDR 333) - no video
all in addition to the new PSU I fitted. So despite the only original parts remaining being the HDD and DVDROM, I still have the same issue....am I cursed?
EDIT: checked out the Ti4600's S-video output. Using the supplied adapter, connected it via composite video, which produced a black flickering image. Tried it on an old CRT tv, and it produced a black, flickery image with two horizontal white lines in the middle in a 2.35 ratio - like a widescreen movie on a fullscreen set, only without the actual movie :P Is this indicative of anything?
