PC won't display on monitor

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This is probably a motherboard problem but I don't know where else to post this.

When I turn on my PC I hear a beep and all the fans run just fine; however nothing displays on screen and my monitor thinks nothing is connected. At first I thought is was a video card problem because its fan wasn't spinning; so I removed the video card and connected the DVI cable to my motherboard, however I still got the same problem.

I also don't see an LED from my motherboard; I don't remember if it had an LED in the first place though (it probably did)

Things I tried so far:

1. Changing monitors and monitor cables
2. Resetting CMOS by removing battery and jumper
3. Powercycling (unplug power cable from PSU, turn off PSU switch, and hold power button on case for 60 seconds
4. Checking if stand offs under motherboard are still there
5. Unplugging all PSU cables and re plugging them in
6. and of course removing the video card and connecting DVI cable to motherboard

You might want to check and see if your model motherboard has an LED or not as that could be crucial in this type of situation.

Maybe even a dead cable on the monitors part?
