Need some help with a pentium machine.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hey guys,

i have an old p4 system that won't display any video. i confirmed that it worked fully, but then i brought it home and i don't know if something happened during the car ride, but it wont display anythin, and i have to hold the power button for about 1-2 seconds to get it to start. Please givve me advice! pi have tested the pc with my known good monitor and cables.
i'm suspecting that the graphics or the mobo is fried. i know that the other components are in working order. please reply.

Does it have Integrated Graphics? If display will work though them then your GPU died.

I have lots of experience with old P4 rigs and all i can say that no matter whats the problem, replacing the mobo always work =/

it could be just dirt preventing the gpu to have good contact with pci/agp slot.

Remove it and clean the slot with a brush.
Clean the gpu with an eraser like this:


You could also clean the ram while you're at it
