Like what? PC-72187A (not sure it that is the serial number or what). OP is XP pro. I can’t get onto the computer to get specs. It turns on, fan is going but nothing comes up on screen. We tried several types of mouse’s, including a USB (I know it is not the prob just a symptom), and tried different monitors as well as cables for them. Nothing.
Another tech stated it sounded like the motherboard.
Can a dead GPU cause prob. with the mouse? I figured at least a conponet of the graphics system went out just didn't seem to be possible the mouse would be affected by that. It was my bros computer and he mainly used it for gaming.
Is it an easy fix to replace the graphics card?
I am obv. not a tech so please anything you say can you state in an "idiots guide to" context. would be great.
