Hi all,

Something strange has happened with my machine. I was one day inputing information onto a spreadsheet, and BAM! Screen goes, no signal. Since this has happened I have tried changing my RAM, video card, and resetting my CMOS, all with no avail. Spec wise, I do not know much, as im unable to see anything... I know i have a Geforce 6600 video card, and a pentium 4 processor. Sorry i cant give any more details...

Thanks in advance!

Hi Squiddeh :D
First thing I recommend is try connecting the pc to another screen, a laptop with a vga port will do.
If you still get no display I suggest swapping the psu for a known working one if you can, if you can`t
you would need to remove your psu and get it tested by a Tech who has the appropriate equipment.
You have obviously opened your case up to swap cards and Ram around so can you open the case and get the
MB details, make, model and rev number if it has one, do the same for the psu please.

PSU is an Eagle DR-B350ATX

I suggest you follow the psu recommendations from post #2 see the link below and you will understand why;
http://www.techimo.c...wer-supply.html
Have you got a spare CMOS battery for the MB, if it is the original battery it may have died and this could also cause you issues.

Edit: Below are the system requirements for the Geforce 6600, you will notice that the card requires 350W alone;

Minimum Requirements:

Intel Pentium 4 Prescott class processor or higher (LGA775 processor package) or AMD Sempron/Athlon
Microsoft Windows 2000, XP
A PCI Express compliant Motherboard with a x16 lane bus compliant slot
128MB System RAM (256MB recommended)
350W power supply
50MB of available hard disk space for full installation
CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive
VGA or DVI-I compatible monitor
