Comp doesn't power anything

\015 When I turn on my computer I get the hum that the computor is on and by cd and dvd player will open, but my screen does not turn on. nor do any of my usb ports\015

Answers :

It's likely to be these four main culprits:

Video Card / GPU

Memory

Motherboard

CPU

Start by opening up the case (with the power removed of course) and try removing and reseating your video card and memory sticks.

Then restart the computer.

If nothing changes, try removing the bios battery with the computer unplugged for about five minutes then put it back.

If those don't work then it's probably a motherboard problem, but if you get any beeps messages or anything else changes, let me know and I'll throw some ideas your way.
