    Just need some opinions on my problem.

    My duaghter found the powerstrip under my desk one too many times and now my monitor says there is no signal. The box powers up and seems to work fine, but just no signal.

    Tested the video card and HDD work fine.

    This is making me think it is my mobo, but I don't have a way to swap that without a huge pain in the arse.

    SO - should I order a new mobo? nForce2 of course....

    Thanks

    :cheers:

    There ould possibly be a short in your monitor cable, the connector might be missing a pin (I beleive all of them are missing one or two tho, all mine have been) Try testing a different monitor and see if that works

    Dang, your mobo might be gone. Try clearing CMOS, or pushing the reset buttn after its powered on

    Just thought I'd throw in this good article from right here at TT. It does say you shouldn't hook your monitor to a power strip. When I switched mine. It got rid of all most all the ghost lines on this 1994 21" Comcrap Qvision.:D
