What's The Matter?
I'm fixing a computer for a friend with the following problems:
1) When I first hooked it up and powered on, I got the "Compaq" logo. Nothing I could do would make it go away or enter the BIOS set-up. If I pressed F10, it should say "Entering BIOS setup..." but it never actually opened.
2) Thinking that it was a hareware issue, I decided to unhook each device one-by-one. The first device I unhooked has the hard drive. After unhooking the hard drive, when turned on, the computer will not display anything on the screen.
3) I noticed that the monitor (VGA) connector, was bent to one side (from a monitor cable tugging on it). I installed a PCI video card, but there is still no monitor output.
How should I procceed?
