No Display

I'm helping a friend get his PC working.

His PC is has an ASUS P5RD1-V Deluxe which has an on board ATI Radeon

The PC powers up but there is no display at all.

Ive tried taking out the RAM chips and reseating them - just trying one on
its own but still no display.

The board also has SVHS/component/composite outputs and I got nothing out of
these either.

I then fitted a PCI graphics card and got no display on that either.

I took out the hard drive to recover files from it and found that some files
had been written to the last date/time I powered up his PC.  So something in
there must be working OK.

I just wondered if the CPU has failed in some way would it still power up?
and exhibit this fault?

I dont have another LGA775 board handy to try out the CPU.

I suspect its most likely a problem with the system board.

I'd appreciate your thoughts on this.

Thanks for your time.

Hacking stuff like this is kinda sorta a hobby of mine.  Now if I only
could figure out how to add my Sirius Sportster to the mix ;/

First if the mainboard has a bios switches for video make sure they are set
properly. I would reset cmos to bootable defaults.

Re: No Display

It does sound like a problem with the motherboard.
