About time to hurt ...
« on: October 19, 2017, 07:28:33 PM »
Something,


       I had a couple of problems with the back up not completing, so took it into work so my "smarter then I" person could see what the problem was and well, it took a couple of days but ta-da it got back to normal.


Couple of weird things such as I had found a virus previously, removed it but it still would not back up.


Ran a virus scan at work and it found nothing that time.


Was able to do updates at the shop but not at home :ummm: Not understanding that nonsense one little bit, however the Windows updates are up to date and so is Window Defender.


Still did not back up so on a random whim, I ran another deep scan on the specific folder that all of my content is located in,


         and well, well why is it finding another virus and this time in the folder I told it to search. Didn't find it before but no it found one.

How very odd, well removed it and tried again and still no back up. Last random attempt said to heck with using the Windows 7 recovery and back up tool, and went with the pure Window 10 back up utility. Ta-da it completed :thud:


No understanding


Now for the reason I want to :rat-atat:  , brought it home and plugged everything back in and went to turn it on and .... sorry about your luck, we don't want to start up at all.


In other words, no signal at the monitors, just like before, and nothing I have tried works to get them to fire up. It even looks like the indicator light showing the hard drives being accessed by the motherboard does not light up. Worse still I push the reset button and nothing occurs.


 :thud:


 :rat-atat:

Is your line voltage correct?
it acts like either the voltage is wrong or maybe the cycle rate is wrong?


did your area have a lot of power line damage?


Also check your batteries of your backups maybe one popped.


First rule of electronics.
start from the plug and work your way back one wire at a time till you find the problem.
Second Rule of Electronics.
Never assume something is good till it is been tested.


Hope this helps.

It does,


    I am not going to mess with it further tonight though

A few extra details

I have two power supplies on this system one for the graphics card and the other (primary) for everything else.

It worked before I took it to the shop, it worked just fine while at the shop, brought it home and now no image on the monitors.

You can hear everything start up, I hear all the fans, the hard drive are running as I can feel them slightly humming, the graphics card is on and running.

No start up screen on monitor though

USB keyboard and mouse worked before I took it in to the shop and test the batteries in it all good

Opened case and checked all connections were firmly plugged in and nothing had shifted for any reason all good

Configuration error in bios might give something like that if something changed like where to send signals for video? O.o can you see the startup screen at all or even get to safe mode to see if default video settings comes up?


Worse case might try pulling one of the video cards and checking if mother board recognizes there has been a change?


But that does not explain the whole sound of the problem as you hear everything working but the monitors do not get the signal.


tried using a different monitor  / card to see if you are getting a signal going to the wrong port? o.O

Can you hear the beep codes? Listen carefully when the machine is turned on. There should be a series of faint "beep" sounds coming from your main board. There should be 2 short beeps a slight pause and then one more slightly longer beep. If this is not the sequence you hear, what is the sequence? Those beep codes are the main board error codes telling you what is and is not fireing as the BIOS runs.

I've had a few with lights over the years, but never one without POST beeps.

I love those beeps. Very useful when building headless systems.
