My brother has important (unbacked) up data on his pc but somethings packed up, the symptoms are...
The monitor shows no signal when the pc is running, so far I've...
Tried the monitor on another P.C and the monitor works
Tried the cable from monitor to P.C and this works
Tried in an old nvidia Ti4200 card that I know worked
The keyboard does'nt appear to be working when the pc is running because the lights don't come on when I press scroll lock or caps lock, the mouse lights up but now sure if its working and another thing I've noticed is that when I move about clicking even though I'd expect to hit some shortcut to a program making it start(if windows is running) I dont seem to get your usuall hard drive rumbling noise so I'm suspecting that windows is'nt booting up at all maybe a HD fault or that the VGA port on the board is'nt working.
Anything else I could try before a shop visit?
