Well first my monitor knda lost it's power then when I got it Fixed I plugged it to my CPU...the display screen appeared for a while then all of the sudden "POOF" the screen went black.....I tried running my monitor on other CPU's and it ran normally I tried running my CPU on other monitors it does'nt show a thing....I tried to isolate the case by trying out the hardwares....My processor is working with other boards just fine but my mother board isn't...how can I trouble shoot my board...is there any possible solution? Coz i'm not that rich to actually buy another coz I have my belt tied right now.....
Just buy another power supply with a higher power for the problem is not on your computer but on the power supply,then try to plug it in a 220v voltage regulator,but i surely recommend that you'll buy a new power supply ok

Bad video card, bad hard drive, bios battery. If you have a screen but only a blinking cursor on it, likely a bad hard disk drive, meaning all your data and files are now gone, also your os is likely inaccessible. If you can heart it boot up like normal through speakers then video card or monitor, more likely the monitor's power supply is bad, find another monitor (size not important, just the display connector) and connect it to your PC with the power off. If it works then it's the monitor that is bad, purchase a new monitor, if another known working monitor doesn't solve the screen issue, it's probably your video card. A new card is cheap and you should be able to install a new one and have basic display until you install the drivers.
The choices are limited, as the series of processors that can be inserted in a mother board is limited. The motherboard will have a socket specification that determines the CPU series that can be used.
How old is your monitor? If it's an LCD type with 5 to 9 years of age then it may have burned out lighting inside of it. You would just replace the monitor. Check the back of the monitor for the date. If 2004 or earlier then you need a new monitor. You did say the video comes up to desktop, so it's not the video card, and the pc booted up so it's not the cpu either. I've had this problem too.
Make sure you go into the bios settings of your motherboard and shut off the on board VGA. You will need to plug the monitor into the onboard VGA adaptor before proceeding to use the secondary adaptor.
I'm sorry to tell you but your cpu has probably fried. Your pc hanging a lot probably meant something was overheating and the fact that you say your cpu is not hot when you have the cooling fan off of it means it is probably the cpu.
When you first turn your system on without a cpu cooling fan, the cpu should be slightly warm, although I do not recommended running a cpu at all without a cooling fan or even touching it when it has power.
Hi, sounds like a problem with your base unit, might be a lose graphics card, a stick of memory might need taken out and put back in.
shouldnt be expensive to fix.
as that will give you the fault that you describe with the monitor.
as the base unit aint posting, and the signal aint being recieved,
if you have basic knowledge you should try taking out the graphics card and refitting it, usually does the job :-)
All the best,
