System will not POST

Recommended Posts

I turn on my pc this morning... no boot.

The audio advisor tells me its due to my VGA card failing. I pull it out, I put it back in.. nothing. I reset the BIOS, nothing. I switch slots, WHAM it works... I switch back, WHAM it works. OK, something is goofy now. I hook up my monitors, no boot. OK? Never knew a monitor could stop a computer from booting, but I will give. I switch the monitors around, no boot. I pull the DVI-VGA converters off, and move things around. It boots... ok, now I am behooved.

!?!??!?!?!?!??!?

Pictured below is the culprit.

Hehe I bet that one took longer to fix thatn normal. It is hard to believe that some of the simple parts like that one there could ever fail but oncew in a while they do.

I would like to get a few LCD monitors to replace my ancient monitors, but i can't justify the cost right now. I will never buy an lCD with analog connections though... DVI all the way.
