My computer recently kicked the bucket and I've been googling, searching, asking friends about what could be the root of the problem but I'm still clueless.
One day I was surfing the web, just checking my email and surfing around my usual sites when out of nowhere my monitor started repeating itself with no response. Like the top 1/8 of the screen was distorted and repeated for the rest of the screen. When I rebooted I got a weird looking POST screen (still scrambled) then I saw what must have been the windows logo, again scrambled, then it stopped right there and froze. I rebooted once more and my PC fan (controlled by the mobo) was at full speed with no response on the monitor, from the keyboard, nothing.
I've tried all sorts of things already. Removing all PCI cards, replacing ram, replacing PSU, unplugging everything but the power connector and power switch to the board and turning it on and still nothing. I have tried taking out the cmos battery, fiddling with jumpers, even removing and reconnecting the CPU and now I don't know what the hell to do.
It would make a lovely paperweight but its way more spunky than my current POS.
