POST Problems
Hey Guys,
My computer won't POST. It's a relatively new build. Had it for about 4-5 weeks. It was working up until the point where I moved. I thought I had packed it safely enough ( I used the same packaging my case came in) but apparently I didn't. Anybody have any ideas about how to diagnose what's wrong? The hardware specs are in my sig.
Thanks!

RE: POST Problems
Try unplugging/re-plugging everything. Most likely a loose video card, power connection or cable somewhere.

Edit: Otherwise check out this article: Help me: Why won’t my newly assembled PC start or boot? http://www.hardware-revolution.com/help-...t-or-boot/

Thanks so much Mathieu. I don't know why it didn't occur to me to reseat my video card but that helped. You are a gentleman and a saint. The website and forums have proved to be invaluable.
Thanks again!

RE: POST Problems
Glad to hear that it was an easy fix and that I could help Smile

Just one thing though, I simply ask you to keep your signature under 4 lines, as per the rules here: http://forums.hardware-revolution.com/sh....php?tid=5

See my signature for an example of how to fit everything within 4 lines.

Thanks!
