PC grief

Postby vpro on Sat Aug 13, 2016 3:38 pm

My lad has done 'something' to his desktop.
Switches on - everything fires up - but doesn't get to the first bleep
Blank screen
Tested all connections
Tried different power supply/video card.

Just spent 40 quid on new RAM........nuffink


Help please!

Is there a reset button on it?

If there is, open up the box and follow the wires from the reset switch to the motherboard, they'll connect to it via a small connector. Unplug the connector and try again.

He's not tried to faff about with over-clocking or bios/UEFI updating has he?
