Hi i have a computer i use as a server (ubuntu 14.04).
Recently it stopped working, but i don't know how to diagnose what hardware might be damaged?
i have plugged in a monitor and when i turn the computer one, lights on the mobo flash as normal but i don't see anything on the screen for booting (bios menu etc).
there is no display port on the mobo so maybe it was the graphics card? to check this i know the server asks for a password at login, so i entered the details without using a monitor. ssh should be working straight away, but i couldn't get a response.
could this be the processor? how could i diagnose that?, would the mobo not have it own micro controller? (if it helps... my mobo is a asus p5n32-e sli).
unfortunately i dont have another computer i could try the hardware on.
