Please help me! I'm out of ideas! I've looked around and done some searches and can't find anything that helps me... So here goes. Last week I purchased a 2nd hand computer (just the tower, no monitor etc) on e-bay, the seller claims it was working fine before he wiped it and sent it via courier... But when it arrived, I plugged it in, plugged in a monitor, keyboard... fired it up and.... The monitor remains blank. As far as I can tell, the monitor is behaving as if there is no signal going to it. It doesn't come off standby. I have tried 2 monitors and I know both are working normally. The fans are spinning, I've made sure everything is secure and plugged in inside, in case something was jolted loose in transport, but other that there being only one screw loosely holding the harddrive in (which I corrected) everything seems fine. I tried removing the graphics card that came with it and using integrated, removing and re-installing the RAM.... Basically everything I could think of. The seller suggested that the fan my have moved a bit and be preventing the cpu from booting the machine properly.... Its one of those big chunky fans, I was going to try removing it and re-installing it, but I can't figure out how to detach it. The PC was sent without any documentation. It was packed well, so it would have to have had some pretty rough treatment to be damaged... Oh, and the case speaker isn't plugged into the motherboard so i have no idea if it is trying to beep at me... I can't figure out where to plug it in on the motherboard. I have also just tried resetting the cmos. No luck. I am still communicating with the seller, hoping he knows whats wrong but he doesn't seem to have any ideas other than what I have already said. Any advice would be very much appreciated I can't at this time afford to take it into a shop to have it looked at... So I really hope I can sort it out! All I know about it is this... (information as provided in the e-bay description) Friends 2nd and final system, hes moved up north and couldnt fit systems into luggage so asked me to sell for him. System has been burning in with 3Dmark for 2 days straight now and is still going strong, Previous to that it was running other burn in utilities to ensure all parts are in working order before sale. 40G HDD 52x CDROM 2.4GHz Celeron CPU Floppy drive 1 x 512Mb Stick of RAM (1 of 2 bays empty) 256MB VGA card with both analogue S-Video and DVI out (plus on board video) MSI Mainboard Sound card Working and tested PSU All parts tested and working (before it was sent) Case of system is dirty and there was a flap of plastic that used to cover the bottom 3 CDROM slots but is missing now also the I/O panel on the back of the system (piece of metal around K/B ports ect is missing but is quite standard i beleive and easy to replace. because of these little things system is sold as is.
