hi all,

i recently brought my computer into apple to sync the contacts off my old iphone so that i could transfer then to my new one (spilt beer on the old one hahh) anyway when i got to apple my computer would not work with any of their displays. we tried both dvi and vga monitors but nothing worked. i figured many it was a driver issue and that nothing was wrong. i got home and plugged my pc back in and i had the same problem. all the lights turn on, the hd's spin, and so do the fans. i tried reseating all of the components but nothing. tried using only one stick of ram...nothing. unplugged all the components that were not nessacary to run the pc but nothing. took out the mobo and checked it out and made sure nothing was shorting and it was fine. i have no onboard video so i cant even try that. what puzzles me is that the pc was working perfectly before i ewent to apple. i thought maybe something moved when i drove to apple so thats why i reseated everything but that didnt work. i even tried using a differnt video card but still the same problem. i dont even think that post is running and there are no system beeps what so ever.



please help......thanks


btw my specs are in my profile thing

Hi there,

Welcome to Geeks to Go!

What is an Aspire PSU? How many watts is it? My initial thoughts are that the PSU is had it, and just happened to go when you turned it off last before moving it to the shop and back.

Cheers

Troy
