Hi, at the moment I have a problem with my main PC. A message on the monitor said ‘no connection’ or words to that effect. I checked the cable and display port connection which seemed to be OK. I tried an HDM connection but same result. I presumed it was either the monitor or the graphics card.
As I had this, my fallback PC at hand, I installed the graphics card from the main PC, connected the monitor, and of course, it works.
I now have the issue of deciding whether or not it is the main board on my main PC which has failed or the processor; though if there is the slightest chance it is something else I would be happy to hear it.
I have seen there are several used main boards for sale which are the same as mine but no new ones. I am willing to buy one if anyone can encourage me in that direction rather than me thinking the processor could be at fault. If a new board could fix it, I would be happy, but don’t really want to buy a processor too unless I have no choice. Help.
