Hi, I've recently acquired an Octane and have been playing with it for some weeks.
Today I powered it up to fans spinning, a solid lightbar yet no video output.
I have reseated the graphics board and the mainboard, cleaned out dust from the air intakes.
Also, it seems to power on by itself, without pressing the power button. The lightbar switches off while the power button is pressed, but the fans still spin.

Thanks

attaching a serial console to com1 (38400) might show some information about what's going on and why there is no video output
