GUEST, Richard Bridge Tech: Monitor stops computer? (18) Tech: Monitor stops computer? 19 Apr 08


This may interest some of you. While I was playing musical chairs with my computers, I thought for a glorious moment or two that I was going to ahve to go out and buy new motherboards.

I put this computer (Richard, I call it) onto the work desk where I usually use the TFT screens to save desk space, and the computer would not boot and made nasty despairing motherboard beeps (one, then two, not sure where my motherboard manual is).

Shit, I thought. I must ahve static-ed something while taking it to bits and swapping PCI cards about.

Popped another computer (the one I call Jeff) in same space. Similar problem different beeps.

Don't ask me why it occurred to me, but I then took the TFT monitor off and put a CRT one on. All AOK.

It can ONLY have been the TFT monitor causing the trouble.

DId you ever hear teh like?
