Hi there,

 

A few days ago when starting my desktop I got a 'no signal' message from my monitor part way through booting and it went to sleep. Ever since, I get no signal whatsoever, right from the get go, but it sounds like it's booting normally and I still hear the windows sound it plays at the log-on screen. 

 

I was in the market for a new GPU anyway, so I ordered one up and swapped out the old one (and the PSU) in case that was the problem. No joy. I've tested my monitor and cable on another machine and they're working fine and none of the power connections is loose either.

 

I therefore throw myself upon the mercy of the board and hope one of you kind strangers has a suggestion. Thanks in advance.

:welcome:      bigzepper,

 

Can you post the brand and model name or number for the MB, CPU, Ram (including the amount) the video card and the PSU.

 

Things to try atm include removing and reseating the Ram and pulling the CMOS battery on the MB to clear any possible bad MB settings.

Sorted. I'd tried the reset CMOS procedure in my mobo manual but hadn't actually removed the battery. I removed and replaced both the CMOS battery and the RAM and everything seems to be hunky dory now, much appreciated. Thanks for your help phillpower  :spoton: .
