    Mobo = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813138026

    Graphics Card = http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814130052

    These are brand new and were working fine for about 2 weeks. All of a sudden, everytime I boot up the screen stays blank, monitor says it's on and computer will up and run, but no picture (no windows loading or bios option, etc.. all blank).

    It's not the monitor, and it's not the monitor chord I am certain... I've come to a conclusion it's either one of those two; however, I have no other card or mobo to test it out on. Are there ways I can eliminate what is not the issue?

    Note: I do not hear any kind of post-beep, but I am not sure if this mobo actually does anything like that as I don't remember hearing them before.

    Thanks in advance,

    Rrruff~

    When you "think" the PC has booted, try the simple test first.

    Press the Caps Lock key and observe the keyboard Caps Lock light. It should go on and off with each successive press. If it does, then the PC has at least posted to BIOS, if not then its dead as.

    Tried that. It's pretty dead. Tried a different power-supply, graphics card and it still didn't bootup. Also took the memory sticks out and it should beep at me but it didn't.

    Now I am concerned as it could either be the mobo or the processor. I can get a new mobo, but the processor will have to be bought if it's the problem. Going to have to try the trial and error and hope it's the mobo.

    Does that sound about accurate?
