Question about Compaq (388746-001) ( 388746-001) Motherboard
The initial problem when I tried to shut it down it appeared to go in Sleep mode but when I tried to wake it up, the lights would blink and it sounded like it was booting up but the monitor stayed blank. I wondered if it was the monitor so I hooked another one up to make sure and it did the same thing. After many attempts I finally disconnected it and used another tower. Later someone told me that maybe I just needed to unplug it to get it to reset. So I plugged it back in and now I get nothing. It's as if it's not even plugged in.
Any suggestions on what could be wrong and how costly it could be to fix?
If you're now getting absolutely no power (you don't hear any fans kick on or see any lights on the board) that almost always indicates your power supply is dead. the good thing however, is that you can get a cheap one for around $60-80 and if you know how to install it, you don't have to pay any extra.
hopefully this is the only thing wrong with it, your initial problem that you had power but no video makes me think you might also have a video card or motherboard problem, but power supply should be what you start with.
hope this helps!
