Motherboard problem?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,


My newer computer isn't putting out any video signal. At first I thought it was the video cards, but at one point I turned the computer back on to test it and one of the case fans didn't start spinning or light up so I think it might be a motherboard issue.


Here's how the problem started. I was running a game on it when it froze. I restarted it and it froze up again, but this time it wouldn't let me shut it down. I switched the power supply off and waited a minute to turn it back on. When I did, no signal was going out to the monitor. I changed the cable and switched the cable position but nothing changed. I checked for overheating but couldn't find anything. Anyone got any ideas as to what's going on?

Could you please post your full system specs? It would help us a lot mate


Are any of your video cards overclocked? What game were you playing when it froze?
