I have 2 computers
an old gateway essential (intel celeron 2x or 3x, 666mhz, 256mb ram pc133, 15gb hd.....) and a compaq sff pc (intel p2, speed unknown, 256mb ram pc133, 10gb hd...)
and both of them were working fine,
but when i shut them off and opened the cases and and put in some parts, when i tried to turn them back on, BAM! no display...........
they both have mobos with interogated monitor ports (excuse me if i sound stupid) so i cant really replace the video cards, i could add some though...
i dont really care about that compaq thats past the hand-me-down stage, i just really would like to focus on getting the gateway working for my sister but if i could hit 2 birds with one stone an get them both working it would be great.
before when i turned them on and theres no display,
i would turn them off, and turn them on, and off, and on, and off, and on,
and then eventually the display would work,
but now, nothing.
With the gateway,
when i turn it on,
theres no beep.
so i dont really know at all what to do............
oh and if this helps,
my dads hp pavilion a320n has been having this same problem, and he revolted the capacators (i have no idea what this is), but he took some needle nosed pliers and it looked like he touched the end of the plug, and bam, it turned on,
im not sure if that helps anyone with helping me lol.
ANYWAY I REALLY NEED HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
