I’m having problems with the video out on my computer. I can't figure out why when i turn the computer on it does not display anything; the LCD light remains amber and never goes green. I've tried disconnecting everything from the mother board and i also purchased a PCI video card and still nothing... any suggestions?

the monitor is working... the monitor works with another pc... when i boot up the pc, there are no beeps or any other indication there's a problem.

 

What i've done is remove the ram, disconnect the hard drive, tried a pci video card as the one it's using on the motherboard... i'm starting to think it's a motherboard problem... do you all know where to get quality parts?

 

i thought it could a boot up problem but i'm starting to second guess that idea.

Don't give up on the board yet. Is there a Radio Shack or Best Buy nearby? Pull the motherboard battery and get a new one. Check that the fans on the power supply are spinning. Could be a bad PSU. HPs are noted for having the bare minimum power to run what's there. Adding more components could push it over the limit.

Try a new battery. Only a couple $$. Cheaper than a board. :)

 

Your specs show it to be a MSI motherboard, and they are a good brand.

Have you disabled the onboard video controller in your BIOS? If not, you will effectively running a dual monitor machine, and the onboard controller will try to be the primary - you won't see anything unless you plug into the onboard jack.

 

If not that, try what dickster says - it's most likely just a power issue.

Have you at least tried pulling the battery for a few minutes. That would reset the cmos which might allow it to boot. Too lazy to look back and see if you did that. :)
