    Hello users,

    I have a problem. My computer won't show anything even when I open it. It stop working after I was testing things. I change one of the options in Power Options in control panel. I change the Power Schemes from Always On to Minimal Power Management. And before this I also underclock from 2.6GHZ to 1.9GHZ from the bios menu. Now when I open my computer it won't open. Does any one know how I can fix this?

    Help is appreciated,
    mk24

    Do you have on board video or a video card ? If card try reconnecting from the back outside the case. Maybe plug got bumped or something. Try taking card out and reseating. Hopefully one of those easy fixes. Fill in your specs and maybe you'll get more help.

    Does computer start up ? Fans everything and just not a display ?

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have a MSI K9N2G Neo motherboard.
    GeForce 8800 GT video card.
    2 Gigs of RAM.

    I tried replugging everything, rebuild the computer, clean out the dust.
    When I open the computer, the system fan, psu fan, cpu fan, video card fan, are all blowing.
    A weird thing is that I don't remember the computer making a funny noise when I open it, but now it does. And yes nothing display when I open it, my monitor gets the no signal sign but the computer is on.

    Reset the CMOS?

    A 'funny noise' (what does it rattle, squeel? further info helps) usually means a bad fan.

    Will resetting my CMOS change anything besides the bios? and the funny noise only happen once at start up, its hard to describe.

    Thanks for the reply.

    It will just clean out the BIOS settings.

    Do you have another video card you can put in to test ?

    Looks like that board has on board video take out card and see if it comes up without video card.

    I try removing the video card, but it still won't start. and... no i do not have an extra video card.
    By the way, my computer CMOS battery jumper has 5 pins. How do I reset it?

    Edit: I took a picture if you want to look at it.
