Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I was on my computer browsing the internet as usual and without warning my screen just went blank. First I thought my video card went out so I shut down the computer and restarted it and now I dont even get a boot screen. I replaced the video card and even used the onboard video and still nothing. The computer turns on but i get nothing on the screen. Switched the monitor and still get nothing.
I've done research and found out that eMachines does this to alot of other people, and that the motherboard may have some bad capacitors. I checked all of them on the board and see no physical signs of them being bad. So I was wondering is it possible that if my bios chip went bad, will it cause my computer to blank out like that while im on it? Or I have some bad capacitors that isn't showing any physical damage?
Let me add that the power supply was replaced also with no luck.
Is there a post beep when the pc is switched on. check the memory if it is a beep beep beep sound , also disconect the hard drive, dvd drive, floppy, and any usb devices and see if it boots up. if that fails it does seem like the mother board, also check the cpu fan has it stoped. also find out the power switch conector on the mother board, from the base unit switch to the mother board. also chech the power connector from the power supply to the mother board , on newer boards there are two that go to the mother board its self , a big one and a very small one .
