    Is it the motherboard or?


    Hello,

    I have a computer which until a week ago used to work without a problem. However the other day I switched on and although I can hear the fun work, the monitor shows me the message "No Signal".

    At first I thought it could be the video card or the RAM. However I can not hear any beeps when I start the computer.

    Does this mean that the motherboard is gone?

    I can give any extra information if need be.

    Regards,
    Sim085

    There is a possibility that the PSU has failed, at least in part...

    It could still be outputting the right voltage to the fans etc. but the part that supplies power to the main board and CPU has failed...if you don't have access to a spare power supply...you can have them tested at most computer repair shops...

    good luck
