Question about Biostar G31-M7 TE Motherboard
I don't know who recommended a CMOS battery to fix your graphics, but this = no.
1) You have checked the monitor cable, correct? If the monitor cable is removable, replace it with a known to be good one, for a test.
If the monitor cable is not removable, use a known to be good monitor, and cable for a test.
2) If you are using the Integrated Graphics of the motherboard, (OnBoard graphics), then the next test is to install a graphics card. If you have graphics now, your OnBoard (Integrated) graphics chipset is bad.
3) I find most of the time, (Like around 80% or more) that the Power Supply is bad.
Enough power to light LED lights, spin fans, (Or spin a few times, and stop), but NOT enough power to turn the Processor on.
A bad Power Supply is one of the leading causes of computer failure, right next to computer is dirty inside.
A) ALL of the LED lights being on at once, will use less than 1 Watt of power.
B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.
C) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power. Depends on what Processor it is.
Here you can see a CPU Support list for the Biostar G31-M7-TE motherboard, and the wattage of the different CPU's,
Again, you may have a bad Power Supply.
Enough power to light LED lights, and spin fans, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.
No Processor operating, No computer.
No computer operating, No video signal.
Do you have a KNOWN to be good, compatible power supply to use for a test unit?
