I was reinstalling windows on the C partition, and when setup rebooted right after the formatting was done, it died.

The screen (LED) lit up, off, back on. The screen remained black.
No BIOS, nothing.
I reset cmos, still nothing on screen.
Then I unplugged the hd and rebooted, still nothing.

After the cmos was cleared is would go back into booting in the default order (floppy, hd, dvdrom then dvdrewriter - i watched the leds on everything lite up in that order..
But nothing on screen.. Everything was fine before..

Even if something would have suddenly died, the system should still boot up and let me into bios right?

Anyways I need help !!

I'm out of ideas..

Try switching your ram around and if you have 2 sticks test each one separately in different slots.
Also, make sure your GFX is seated correctly and eveything is plugged in. Strange it happened straight after a reformat, could just be coincidence though.

If you have diagnostic LEDs on your mb, read this to find out the exact POST test that is failing...

My suspicion was correct: The monitor died.
very odd though..

The led would light up and all, but the screen remained black, so I tested the screen on a diff comp.. same thing.
Wierd that it happened at one of the worst moments it could have though


And to think it's not even 6 months old.. anyways they're going to give me a new one from rma on wednesday.. right now i'm using a 15yr old 13" (or something like it)
Lmao this thing blows
