Sorry for making a new thread guys but I had to in order to avoid confusion. I have this old PC which comprises of P4 2.0 Ghz, 768 MB RAM, 512 MB 7300GT AGP graphic card on a MSI PM8M-V motherboard. Being nearly five year old the computer had some display problem mentioned here. I checked my system but everything was fine & even the technician was confused. As my monitor was already showing signs of ageing, I decided to go in for a new monitor - Dell 24" LCD. I bought the LCD & connected it to my CPU but then I failed to get any display. Upon opening the cabinet I noticed a rodent had shitted on the graphic card. I cleaned up the mess with the help of a technician & the computer worked fine at his place where he has a 17" CRT monitor. Today I bought back the system & connected it to my Dell 24" LCD but it again failed to show any display. I took the system to my friend's place who own a 20" Samsung LCD but there too I got no display. Both the displays switch back to Standby mode once I start the computer. The HDD is blank with no OS installed but still the PC not even displays the POST messages. Is this any kind of magic spell? Does this mean I have to dump this machine? What to do guys? I'm now really frustrated. Even the technician has no clue.
