Computer won't display anything on screen

July 20, 2013 2:45:22 PM

Hi everyone my friend gave me his old computer and I was going to see if I could fix it up. It's a AMD athlon xp and the problem is nothing will show up on the screen. He has an ATI graphics card so I tried it that output, then I plugged it straight to the motherboard with no luck. The weird thing is I think it pasts post because when you try to turn it back off you have to hold the power button (wouldn't it normally turn off instantly if it hadn't past post). I have also cleared the cmos.

Is it just the motherboard or is there anyway to tell? Also is it really worth it to fix up?
