K, I've got another good one, lol
I had a guy bring me a very old machine. He said he couldnt get a picture. When i took a look at it, the tower would come on and get power, there were no other sounds, and the monitor wasn't waking up.
So, i took it and tried it at my location on a different monitor. Same problem. I then decided to unplug everything that wasn't needed from the motherboard. (ide cables, exp cards, etc). After leaving just mobo, video, ram, I turned the system back on. Same result.
I walked away from the machine for awhile, came back, turned it on, and I got a picture. I shut down. Started reconnecting things. After everything was plugged in, power on. Got Picture, computer came on just fine. Memory count, Post, hard drive spins, etc.
A few hours later, Same situation all over again, computer gets power, no picture, no sounds, no beeps, nothing. hmmm...
I tried another video card out of curiousity. The computer worked fine for a few hours, then, right back to square one.
The memory in the computer was updated about a year ago, brand new. Has a pci video card (no agp slots on board) edo memory. (64mb), AT power supply.
If you need further system specs, let me know.
