My desktop tower crashed a few weeks back. It is a system I built from various parts and it worked quite well for a number of years. It crashed when we were having a number of issues with wifi and ISP service; however, I doubt that resolving those problems had anything to do with the crash.
The symptom is that the system will not boot and display. The LED monitor works, I think, because it will display logo and other info when turned on.
The PSU has been tested and retested in situ and after being removed. I tested it with a PSU test unit and with a multimeter without failure.
I don’t know whether the problem is the graphics card or the mobo or both, or even the SSHD.
How should I go about determining the problem?
Here are the specs:
No-name ATX full tower case with no bells or whistles
Large exhaust fan; 4" intake fan; 1 internal fan
Intel Core i5 3.40GHz CPU with Alpine Arctic Fan
GeForce 9500 GT graphics card (2 DVI ports) with fan
ECS Z77H2-A3 mobo populated with 8 sticks of RAM (16GB)
256 GB Cdrucial SSHD
2 Western Digital 500 GB HDDs mounted in Antec fan cooled racks
Corsair TX 759 i PSU
Thanks for any help you can give a not-as-geeky-as-he-thought 76 yo.
