Precision T3610 no signal, no boot.
After having done all suggestions, I still have no signal, no boot. Last thing I did was try to load an OS(Dell factory image based on Service Tag). from a usb and it did not work. Got a message that it was unsuccessful I then switched to safeboot and rebooted and have been without signal/boot ever since. last time I got a signal. Have done the thorough reset- removing cmos battery and holding buttons while unplugged. Nothing. nv295 video card. Have yet to pull and wash down ram and video card contacts. This was a barebones system, no hdd but 16 gb ram, no os. It all happened after changing to safe boot in the bios. I was warned. . , Yesterday, before any problems occurred, the computer passed its own thorough internal testing. It was then I tried to load the os
I think with some of these older workhorses, everything needs to be jiggled around, connections check etc and they sometimes just magically work after the fifth attempt or some such nonsense. I got myself into this mess and don't want to overthink the solution. Any feedback. I know the list of all the things that could be at issue causing this but , looking for any reference. Thanks
