I had rebooted pc windows started and i had just got onto google when the pc turned itself off.

on turning back on cannot get past HDMI CHECK SIGNAL CABLE no bios screen, no bleeps.

opened up pc re set graphics card,checked hdd cables,RAM,checked hdmi cable and plugs, power lead.

all fans start the orange light on MSI X58 moterboard changes from amber to green when i turn the power on.

re booted with w7 disc, tried to boot to bios all no joy.

could a graphics card failure cause this? any other ideas please.

i know about smells and burnt capacitors and burnt cpu but i have a health problem where i get burning smells that are not there frequently so its hard to tell if a burning smell is genuine or not. but did try and did not get any smells, been over the m/b with a strong magnifying glass no visible damage there either.

tried both graphic sockets with a new graphics card neither worked yet the board light by the sockets was on showing they are working.

not checked the CPU awaiting for a friend to bring diagnostic cards round, but that may not be for a ages, all hardware eliminated bar cpu and m/b but would a duff cpu have this effect. thanks for continued offers of help.

If Novatec suspect the motherboard then it most probably is. The PC won't boot if the paste has dried up or not efficient, though, have a look here .

I know you've done most of the checks but scroll down a bit, after the beep codes, for more suggestions, click here.
