I'm working on an EMachines T2080 here. L7VMM board, AMD Athlon XP 2000 1.67GHz, 512MB PC2100, dual HDs, DVD, CD-RW...
On startup, nothing goes to the screen, the monitor doesn't even go from orange light to green light. (Monitor tested and works on other machines). I've added a video card, nothing happens. Switched out power supplys and nothing. Everything seems to be working, all fans are spinning, all cd drives open on command. No recent changes were made to this machine.
Am I correct in assuming it is either the processor or motherboard?
I don't have any spare compatible boards or processors. I figured that a bad hard drive, cd drive, or ram would not cause a blank display.
Any help is appreciated.
