Hi guys wonder if anyone out there can help me out, my pc is setup with a standard monitor and my tv as a secondary monitor. just over a week ago i was watching Kevin & Perry before a trip to ibiza (must do) as i left for the airport quickly shut down the pc and did 1.

when i got back i turned the pc back on, totally forgetting it was set as my tv as the monitor and thought it wasnt working as i could see bios booting up but then nothing, so i forced it to shut down and since then it wont show up at all.

I've switched monitors, video cards, looked on the web and saw a forum saying if you take the power out and hold for the bpower button in for 60 seconds and then plug it back in .... that didnt work (but did work for a few by the forum reviews).

i'm starting to worry its the motherboard!

Anyone else come across this or be able to help?

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks

Kenny

Like Morpheus mentioned try the CMOS battery.

Failing which strip the PC down to its bare components i.e. one stick of ram, the motherboard hard drive with the os, cpu, psu etc and test the components from there. that way you can more easily identify the problematic component that's not booting the PC.

with a bit of luck the CMOS reset will do the job.
