Hey Krick, thanks for the info!

This is primarily a MAME cab. I have left as much of the cabinet intact as possible. I am using an arcade VGA with a smart strip. So I flip the cabinet switch on and the PC and monitor power up. As-of now, the Monitor isn't powering up. I would not be surprised if the monitor was dead. I just don't know how to verify that.

Here is the kicker, the last time I used this machine with a jamma board, it made a loud cracking sound and blew up IC's on the boards. I've lost two boards this way after double checking and everything seeming to be ok. Something must have changed when I replaced the monitor chassis, jammas did work at one point.

After hearing that, someone said it war the power supply for sure, so I do want to replace it regardless.

Any ideas?
