I recently relocated. I have not run my computer since I moved. It has been about 3 months. When I turn my computer on the display is not working. The monitor says it is working fine, but it is not connected to the computer. I change monitors and still the same thing. Also, I have had to hard boot it in order to shut it down approximately 7 times. I try to open the CD Rom drive and it will not open. What could be the problem.
You could try reconnecting the source to the hard drive, cd-rom.... Use your ear to check if the hard drive is working (if you know what sound is your hdd making when it's working)
The videocard could also generate some problems. Make sure it is well in place.
Hope it helps.
Sounds like you might need a new power supply. Does the computer even power on?
i was just wondering what has the CD-ROM have to do with the monitor display. Ah you mean your CD-ROM cover does not open when you press eject... I can think of a few reasons to why your monitor is not displaying.
1.) When disconnectng your monitor to relocate... you may have dislodge part of the display card thus it will not display on screen when u plug in the cable. Open the casing to check on your display card position
2.) You plugged the monitor cable to the wrong display port if you are using an independent card. You may have plugged it to the integrated graphics port.
3.) Your graphics card is damaged.
4.) Your PSU is nearing its lifecycle and is no longer giving enough juice to run your computer.
5.) You used to plug your monitor power supply independently from the CPU power supply (as in the monitor power supply cable is not plugged into the CPU PSU but directly to the wall socket. Thus, now that you plugged it to the PSU, there is not enough power to run your hardware
Just to add something to what Kevin Suggested....Remove the Ram from the slot and rub the contacts using a rubber and place it back, its a very likely problem. If it still doesn't works tell if the CPU fan is working when u switch on the pc.
Is it plugged in to the power socket?
