    Whenever I turn on my computer the display goes hazy or at times it fails to even come up. I tried the machine with other monitor but there too it failed to give any display.

    The PC Specs are :
    MSI PM8M V Motherboard
    Intel Pentium 4 2.0GHZ (Socket 478 )
    768MB DDR RAM (512+256)
    Zebronics 7300GT 512MB DDR2 AGP 8X Graphic Card

    To demonstrate the problem, I have shot a video. Please have a look at it.




    I called a PC technician. He tried changing the ram sticks & the CMOS battery failing to get any success. Once the PC booted giving clear display but Fedora 11 hunged up & then I had to reset the PC. After re-booting it again came to square one, showing up no display at all. The technician concluded that motherboard has developed fault & is intermittently accepting RAM. He added no other option but to dump the full rig since finding a Socket 478 motherboard is not possible. Repairing is futile. I doubt on him. Is it true that the motherboard is the culprit?

    I have already tried with the onboard display but it failed to show up anything. My current motherboard is the second one, earlier I used Gigabyte GA8VD667 motherboard. So upgrading to a new motherboard is futile since the P4 socket 478 platform is already ancient. The PC technician added most of manufacturers have stopped production of pin processor based motherboards. I think I will now have to dump the entire rig. :(
