However, just today my monitor went black and I turned the power button off then back on and it would show my screen where I was. Then as soon as I moved the mouse it would go black again. I thought I unplugged the monitor only to find out I accidentally unplugged the tower.
I have unplugged everything and tried to restart several time but my computer will not even act like it has any power to it at all. Printer will work, and mouse lights up, and the monitor power button has a light, but the light on the power button on the Pc just is green(amber? cant' tell for sure but is solid) but does nothing.
I have double checked the power cords, and I'm fairly certain it is not the monitor. I tried another monitor and it won't work either when plugged into this PC and works otherwise. Also, the monitor test check works when just plugged into power and not PC.
Also, I have 2 (512 mb) memory sticks.I removed each one separately and no help there.
I noticed the green light on the MB (at least I'm assuming it's the MB LOL:)is on.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! THANK YOU!!!!!
Also, my husband told me (just now:)) that the monitor went red on him a couple days ago. But haven't had any problems since.
