Ok, i've gotten about 3 or 4 broken PC's from friends this year that have the same problem. They are have no video-It's like an epidemic. Turn them on and you get lights, you get fans, you can open the CD/dvd tray, the hard drives work ok in another pc, but no video. The screen just says "Self test...check your cable and PC" flashing every 3 seconds. Two of the PC's were HP's, and now I have an IBM ThinkCenter MT-M 9215-A1U. All had graphics cards built into the Mobo, so I put a PCI video card in there and still nothing. Then I put an AGP in there and nothing agian. I never hear it post, but then maybe the beep was shutoff and I can't get to the cmos settings anyway. I've tried to swap out the memory sticks. I've unplugged the HDD, the CD/DVD drives, the PCI devices. Any Ideas?
