Hey guys help me with your opinions on this is...
I came into my room because it smelled of an electronic fire...
my monitor was on but not getting a signal and i turned everything off
then thinking my monitor was toast i plugged it in to my other family computer and it worked fine, so the monitor is OK.
I opened up the case and it was VERY dusty, probably the problem. The following info pertains to what is broken in my computer...
It seemed to boot up normally though I cannot see whats going on, it gave 1 beep which I dont think is normal, cant remember
The hard drive spins and clicks just like normal so I think its fine.
Also the keyboard responds to the different 'lock' modes
So seeing that it probably boots up normally the CPU, RAM, mobo and harddrive are OK... am I correct in assuming it is the video card that is toast?? any other ways to figure this out??
