Having problems with your HP Pavilion MX70 17" CRT Monitor ?

Is video card/motherboard dead?

\015 Hi, i have a HP pavillion m8247c. When i power up the PC the monitor immediately says there is no input and then switched to sleep mode. The blue power light blinks and stays lit and the computer appears to operate normally, but I cannot tell because I cannot see anything. Tried using another monitor and same result. NO there is no issue with monitor. Is the video card (Nvidia Geforce 6150SE) part of the motherboard? Had a thunderstorm yesterday right before noticing issue. Could power surge killed video/motherboard? How can I tell if it is an issue with video card and/or motherboard? What can I try to localize the issue?Thanks1\015

Answers :

Do you normally "logon" to the computer or does it load completely by itself.
\015\012If you wait for the system to "settle" you can test the computer w/o the monitor:
\015\0121. Press the "windows logo" key on the lower left of your keyboard
\015\0122. Press the letter R
\015\0123 Type WRITE
\015\0124. Type a few random letters ~ran~dom~
\015\0125. Press this three key sequence:
\015\012[Alt]F [P]
\015\012
\015\012(Alt & F) together then the P key
\015\012
\015\012Your random document will print if the computer is actually running.
\015\012
\015\012ok, I suggest you reset your BIOS by removing the mobo battery or by shorting the "reset" pins next to the nattery or BIOS chip.
\015\012Go from there...
