I removed the cards off the motherboard, i then inserted the power chord into the power supply and the computer booted up as it has booted before but only this time... The fans stood on! so i held onto the power button and the machine still would not turn off... the fans however still where spinning.
I then unplugged the power chord from the power supply and the computer turned off. I then removed both sticks of RAM off the board and a LONG BEEP! occurs as well as my previous experience. (computer fans staying on)
Regardless. the computer is not turning off by holding down the power button... still no video display.
I don't think the computer had a video card that came with it. I do see the blanking plate missing but i don't remember there being a video card there... i do not have a video card that can fit that slot but i have one for the other slots. I just disconnected every card from the motherboard... including the HDD and RAM. the computer beeps and does the same thing.
Plug in the power chord to the back of the PSU
Fans turn on
no video output
hold down power button but the PC doesn't turn off
