Monitor Won't Turn On? (With other problems)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I guess today was kinda unlucky. Here are my computer specs and the problem.

Current Specs:

Windows 7 Ultimate
3GB Ram
200GB Western Digital
nVidia 9500GT 1GB [Added one. Originally the mobo had an internal GPU]
Intel Pentium Dual-Core Processor E2200
Foxconn MCP73M02H1 Motherboard

Problem:

Today, my computer had a BSOD, something that looked like a BSOD. The screen turned blue, dumped physical memory, than froze at the screen.

I rebooted and a couple minutes later, it had the BSOD again.

I booted from my Memtest USB (Latest version) and on the first test, it failed every single test (For a couple seconds) so I turned it off.

I took out the 1GB stock ram chip and ran a memtest for the 2GB ram stick and it passed for a couple minutes. I got impatient and turned the computer off, put in the 1GB ram chip and pulled out the 2GB. I booted my computer again and the monitor did not receive the signal from the computer, it remained it its own "sleep mode". I cleaned out the dust in my computer and everything but it's still stuck like that. The computer turns on and the monitor remains sleeping.

Can you guys help me find out which parts I need to replace or whether I should just get/build a new computer?

Also, if you need more info, just tell me what you need and I'll gladly put it up.

Thanks in advance!

eliminate the problem by only leaving in the essentials.

Also if the 1 GB chip failed mem test it is probably at fault. so remove it and try to run the pc with only the 2GB stick.

Also if the pc is overclocked, clear the cmos -> return it to stock and try again.
