help please. nothing showing when i turn on pc

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Nothing shows when I turn on desktop (sign rig). Is that video card problem?
My rear exhaust fan and video card fan aren't spinning anymore
Can I swap out my video card with a radeon HD 4650? Will my mobo support it?

UPDATE: i brought the tower over to an old friend's house to test my comp and then individual parts

tested individually:
PSU
hdd
vid card
ram
spare vid card
motherboard + CPU

PSU and motherboard are fried

everything else is ok - vid cards, ram, hdd

if motherboard fries, does that mean the CPU is dead too?

Yes you can swap out the card.First do the paper clip test on the power supply (connect the green wire to any black ground wire).For better instructions google paper clip test.
