I was doing something a few weeks ago, not quite sure what it was, and i was constantly having to restart my computer. I cold booted it quite a few times in a short period, and it stopped working. My problem is, I dont know what the problem is. All the LED's and fans run and everything appears normal. I plugged the hard drive into another computer, it detects it.. My idea is that it would be a shot motherboard or video card, so I put in another AGP video card, and it still has no video output. The monitor works fine. Only thing I think it could be is the motherboard, but I dont know how to test that. Any tips or ideas on what to try out? thanks.

do you hear any beeps when you turn your computer on? This could mean that your video card is broken.

try moving your RAM into different slots and then try turning your PC back on, see if you get any beeps then or if your computer starts working.

Also check the connections on your RAM when moving them and make sure none of the connections are black (Meaning they have been fried by your motherboard)

I had the same problem a few weekends ago and it ended up being one of my RAM was fried.
