    Exclamation Thanks,
    Thanks, but i did try that already im kinda guessing from previous experiance that its the logic board, but im hoping its not because i love having this computer but its such a waste to have when it doesn't work. I do get video up but it doesn't do anything.

    Yeah, if you've done the resets, switch HD's, disc then the most likely culprit is the MLB.
