my friends computer broke down a little while ago and he brought it to me to take a look at it but i have no freakin idea... its around a 2003, Dell Demension 3000 the board lights up and it powers up but it wont boot up everything turns on but nothing will come up to the screen. before that it wouldnt even power up i took the CPU out and discoverd that it had a few bent prongs so it wasnt sitting flush on the board ... i straighten them and put it back and now like i said its got power but wont boot...... any thoughts would be most helpful thanks for your time

it might...due to the bending,something might've ruptered inside.
but if they're not broken,it should be pretty much oke.

are the memory modules in place?are all connectors propely connected?
can you measure if a current is present in a wire(if wires are alive)?
i mean,it could be lots of things...
i would take it all apart,and try to boot with a diskdrive,a HD
and a cdrom device or something,without any cards...
to pinpoint the problem more efficiently...
other cards my cause this problem.

my nvidia once was f'd...it overheated,and i couldn't boot anything,
i couldn't even access my bios,so....try anything you can think of.

your processor doesn't have a huge black spot on it does it?
do you smell anything burned in there?
are there any sounds in that box,that you should be hearing,
but you don't?or:you shouldn't be hearing but you do?

i've no clue dude,what exactly the cause of this is....

If you can, try inserting a different graphic card.

I wasn't dissing his equipment, I was reccomending on getting a new computer because his computer broke and it might just be a problem because it's "old" - jackass. :happy:

too bad...I have so many suggestions, lol...but since you're gone I'll give one for the people who may care.

Since you fondled the pins of the CPU (I'm assuming with your bare hands) use a piece of syrafoam (spelling?) and press the pins in and out of the foam. This will clean off any oils you may have gotten on the pins from your hands.

Too bad I couldn't ask the question...Are you hearing any of the beeps from the POST cycle or can you hear the hard drive reading at all?

I am the machine that reveals the truth to you as only I can see it.

Memories are nice, but that\'s all they are....memories.

You can\'t ever find a place that\'s nice and peaceful, because there isn\'t any. You may think there is, but once you get there, when you\'re not looking, somebody\'ll sneak up and write \'Fuck you\' right under your nose.
