Hello fine peoples! I have a bit of a problem right now.
I have a HTPC, which I use basically as a media server. Today it up and died on me. I usually leave it on, and during the day today it disappeared from the network. I checked it out and couldn't get any screen input.
Upon restarting it, still no screen input. But also no post beeping. No activity of any kind, other than powering on and kind of staying idle. Not visibly working at all.
So my question is, what are some of the things that could cause this? Bad cmos battery? Dead GPU? Dead HDD? I would die if it's the hard drives.
Basically, what are the things I should be looking for that could be causing the computer's blank state.
I appreciate any help I can get on the issue. If I can't solve it myself I'll have to take it to be troubleshooted.
No post beep.
No screen input.
Already tested: powering on with one of the two sticks of ram at a time. Still same problem.
