Hello,

Recently I transported my computer via UPS from Michigan to California. Long bumpy trip I'm sure. Once I finally got it here I noticed that when powered on the monitors would stay blank and there is no system beep. The Harddrives still power up and spin. I opened the case and found one HD unplugged and another actually loose from its fitting inside the case.

My question is, what could this possibly be. I havent had a chance to physically troubleshoot it yet, but is there another jumper or something somewhere that could be disconnected, what would you suggest I look for

If the cables for the disk drives vibrated loose then the video card may also be loose. The video card should be removed and reinserted into its slot (with the power cord disconnected).

Good Luck
