This thing was broken from the start when it was brought to me. The motherboard, video card, and CPU are brand new. The only thing that isn't new is the hard drive and PSU, but they both work.

Here's the problem. I had to switch out the video card. So I did, and it was working fine. then Microsoft outlook express wanted to update so I let it update and restarted the computer. However when it restarted there was no video coming up at all..NONE.

The monitor does work because when I turn it on the logo of the monitor flashes. What can this be? I've switched out the video card with several others and still no video.

I can't get into the bios at all so post nothing about it please. Also the POST code says everything is fine, as if it were at the desktop.

It's PCI-e but no more worries, I got it working. All I did was unplug the hard drive and it turned on, I have no idea how that has anything to do with video but it works now.

Thanks for replying simba7.

the original was 350 but was dead and switched it with a older 250 watt. Again, it's solved. For whatever the hard drive was.

it will not be working for long running pcie with such low wattage psu's

the min i recommend for pcie is 80+ quality 550w or better

what are you running
video card brand and model
cpu
m/board
ram
power supply
brand
model
wattage

check the listings in the bios for 12v line voltages and cpu temperatures and post them
