Yesterday my friend came to my house with his old PC consist of COre2duo, Intel DG45GCNL, 1GB 667bus ram, ATI GPU(sth like 240/2400) etc etc. The problem is, it is not making to the monitor. The CPU and case fans spin properly after pressing the power button. I tried with the GPU and the IGP(built-in) both, but no sign of connection with the monitor. Not even the BIOS splash screen. I unplugged the VGA cable while the system running and the monitor shows "not plugged" sign. If the cable is plugged in this meantime, then the monitor goes to blackout again.
The GPU and the Ram were tested in another system and they were OK. I think the mobo is probably busted.
Any suggestion from dear friends? Thanks in advance
