  1. Hi guys, hope y'all doing good, just a minor problem i got

    I have a built system from about two years now that was always starting/operating/shutting-down fine. Soyo Mobo, AMD clocking 1.8, 512 ram, onboard videocard.

    on Sunday, suddenly it completely froze while i was using it (a very faint purple overlay came on the monitor display). after powering off the system, it refuse to power back on.

    i know there is power on the mobo because, it lights up when the system is plugged in, all fans start spinning when i push power button, the cd drive lights up and i can eject and close it. the problem is that nothing comes on the monitor (monitor power light is green), there is no beep, no sounds at all (not even hard-drive-reading sound), no display from bios.

    i reset the bios, still nothing, i bought a NEW battery(same type) for bios, still nothing..... PLEASE, I WOULD BE MOST GRACIOUS FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE.

    Possible a failed monitor or failed video graphics card. Replace with another to test.
