i took it to its spot and plugged all cables in again and it started yelling at me again but it won't tell me what's wrong :((
it still doesn't output any display signal but after just reseating the 2x2 and 2x4 ram sticks it doesn't yell at my anymore so maybe that was the issue?
i was planning to install headless anyways so if display out is all that's broken its all good lol
it won't post and it doesn't output anything over display port
the only other display connector it has is vga
let's see if this random vga to display port adapter i have works lol
i assume the speaker broke after sitting between the metal spring for a few days, which is unfortunate
sooo sad update
i got it back together and working but it's still very quiet
i tried resoldering a few connections because they looked shoddy but nothing changed
i tried screwing it back together but the speaker fell out again, so i glued it in and now i'm waiting for the glue to dry
i'll post an update when it's back alive
the inside of the button has guides so you can't put it in the wrong way and it can't rotate, neat
i was trying to figure out why it wasn't making a sound when i pressed the button but then i realised it was turned off
just a bit quiet...
i dunno if the resonance in the button added so much volume or if something else is wrong
got it open, looks like the speaker fell off
it's an 8 ohm 0.5 watt speaker, for those who are curious lol
taking off the feet at the bottom reveals a few screws, looks like a good place to start
