Computer Issues
« on: May 13, 2014, 06:08:28 pm »
I went to use my game computer (to start setting up IL2 HSFX) and had to reboot it - it doesn't make any 'beep' sound and no video shows up - the fans spin, that seems to be it.

I tried an older video card, no difference... so I'm guessing right now it's CPU/Mobo ?

If your MB is pretty old, you might need to just replace the on-board CMOS battery. They're like a watch battery. pretty inexpensive, but very problematic if it runs dead.

good news - took it to the shop, they tested and found out it was the power supply - much cheaper than the other options :)
