My computer was working fine. I walked away and when I came back my computer would not wake up. I re- started my computer and it would not do anything. The only thing that I can see that is working is the fan. I have a medion PC MT6 that runs windows xp. Is there anything that I can do or is there a way for me to get my info of the hard drive on to another computer?
If it is indeed the fan on the MOBO please check to see if it is plugged directly to the MOBO or is it connected to the PSU? If it is directly to the PSU then you have a MOBO problem. Is your video On Board or is it a Add-on card?
Do you have another system to test the monitor with?
Can you find another video card to test your system and the monitor?
It sounds like the system is booting but no video. We need to test the two items i just mentioned to see if one of them is the culprit.
Ok I took a old video card out of one of my other computers and it is not the same but it did work. The only thing is that I can not open any files or anything. Is this because my old video card had a fan and a cable attached to the Mother board? I don't want to buy a new video card if this is not the problem.
If the old video card is working then I'm afraid your video card may be part of the problem. Opening files is a different issue.
Will the video card you took out of problem machine work in the other system?
