I have pc that I sold to my next-door neighbour to cut it short it
annoyingly keeps breaking down. The most recent and annoying thing its doing
now is not displaying anything on screen at all but apparently running fine
behind the blank screen (no post beeps). I tested the graphics card and its
fine, swapped in another, still no display. I've swapped the mobo and it
started working so I replaced it and sent it back a job well done. Until it
came back with the same problem! I instantly thought psu knocking out mobo
(agp socket). So I changed the mobo and psu and still no display?!!!!!
Anyone else had similar experiences? Am I missing some thing?
