Hi, I'm after some help with my pc which encountered a power surge yesterday and even though was connected to a power surge protection cable I'm now having problems (Not as much as my next doot neigbour who was hit by the lightening that caused the surge).

There is still power to the PC.
The hard drives and dvd drives start.
The fans on the motherboard work and there is also a green light on the MB.
Bootup then stops. There are no beeps. Nothing appears to start the monitor. (The monitor is ok as its attached to a switchbox and still works with my other pc).

Could I have a problem with the graphics card (Matrox G550)? Is there a way to discover where the fault is?

Thanks in advance

Kevin

You could try to borrow a card and try that.Also do the same with your power supply as that to may be damaged.There is also a chance that the modem has also been hit.

Hi P1,
It's possible that from the surge,the mobo,cpu,or memory is blown.
Take care.
