Hi. I've got old IBM motherboard (about 2002 year or early). I've uninstalled HDD, scanned it with antivirus on the other pc and then installed it back. Monitor don't work. PC is working correctly, but ANY monitor doesn't work.There was a complicated method of uninstalling and i remember i plugged off some wire (there is a button inside the case and it's getting pressed, when the case is closed) and i can't find correct inputs for that pair of wires.
Those wires .. are the intrusion detect switch .. they are not your issue .. but if they are connected somewhere and your not 100% confident .. I'd disconnect it ..
on the system they is a lable w/ a "Type" number and "Model" number .. what are those ..
Do you have a PCI Video Adapter .. or is in on the MB .. or both ?
Are there 2 HD15 connectors ..
does the system beep at you when you power on?
if you have both a PCI card and an Embedded graphics controller .. remove the PCI .. connect your monitor to the embedded and try it

Any decent computer store or Radio Shack should have them. Look at the power port to determine the shape and see if it resembles a rectangle with 2 notched corners (almost like a D) or more like a three leaf clover. If it's from 2002, it's probably the former one.
Hello You've said that there is no start up with your hdd even you hdd is defective your CPU will turn on and have display in your monitor try to turn your computer on then push the button delete or a f1 button it depends on your bios that you have using. If your PC tun and display the bios it means your motherboard is good. Then in the bios set up put it in the main section you will see if your HDD is detected by your PC if not then you HDD is defective o have a lose contact on its connectors. If you don't have a display try to check if your CPU have a video card. Turn off your PC then pull out VGA connector that are connected to your computer then pull out the Video card in your motherboard which connected to a PCI slot then tun on your pc using the on board VGA connector which is located at the back of your CPU which is beside the parallel port and on the lower of the mouse and key board connectors. If the problem is still there try to clean your Memory cards which is located inside your CPU unit and located at the left side your motherboard and beside your processor. Clean it with a pencil eraser. Then put it again in your motherboard. If problem is still there. Try to check your power supply may it dropping voltage where the did not full fill the requirements of your computer. Hope this will help.
Try to check in the SAFE MODE with NETWORK by pressing F8 on windows startup. After booting the sytem in safe mode with network, goto RUN -> msconfig-> Select the startup tab-> Disable all applications except antivirus. Then scan the full system if you have any antivirus otherwise install the antivirus and scan total system

Hello suresh_7chan, This can be either a software problem or a hardware proble.
Most likely hardware problem is the primary hdd. (Hard disk drive). To check the hardware end of things. Re-check all data & power connections within the system, paying close attention to your primary hard disk drive. Most blue screens leave a message. If you can write down the message from a blue screen it can be helpful. (Some blue screens go by very fast & it may be too hard to write down the message generated by windows). Another suggestion. If your hdd is large enough, 80GB or more. You can load your windows CD into your CD-Rom drive & boot to the windows CD. In the few screens that windows will display during setup. You'll have the option to create a second partition within the free space of your hdd. Create a new partition & allow windows to do a quick format.
Once completed, install windows into that new partition. Up date windows to SP2, at least. If windows runs correctly without blue screens or sudden restarts, than your old windows is either infected with a virus/worm or just messed up. install antivirus software & run a full system scan. You can use windows disk manager software to change the old C:\ to something like G:\. To run windows disk manager software, click the start button & open run. Type, diskmgmt.msc into the run window & click ok.
Again, if your new install of windows functions correctly & no virus has been found you can copy your old data to your new install of windows. (This is so you do not loose your data).
assuming you have done a recent spyware and antivirus scan incase of any trojans or worms running in the background taking up processor usage, you may have a driver problem, especially if you have recently fitted another graphics card and left the old card driver installed, you should uninstall the old driver before fitting the card and installing the new driver.
take the side off your pc and make sure also that the heatsink fan on your processor is not clogged with dust and ensure there is plenty of air ventillation allowed by checking ide cables arent restricting the flow especially near the graphics card incase the card is overheating.
to give a clue to the problem if it is software driver related go to control panel>administrative tools>event viewer, then in the left hand column look on the applications line and system line and see if there are any red crosses or exclamatiomn marks relating to what you wer doing or running at the time.
