Hello, I have recently received my friends old desktop as an early Christmas present. The only problem is that I get no display when I turn it on, the monitor simply gives me the error saying that it is not receiving a signal and turns off. In an attempt to pin point the problem I striped the computer down to a processor, mobo, the case and processor fan, a single RAM chip, and the Power supply. When I started it up there was still no display, I then re installed everything back into it. There is no smoke, beeping, whining, visible burn marks on the mobo or anything of that nature, it has 2x 1gb ddr2 ram installed, an amd processor, 1 WD HDD, 1 Samsung HDD, a DVD-RW drive, a wireless PCI card and then the ATX power supple and mobo. From what I have deducted, I believe the on board VGA port has died. I would greatly apprecaite any ones advice on the matter, I also have no video card to give me an extra VGA output to test my theory.
