I have the mother board of compaq p4d5oo its has the power and running on also but shows no display reasons


Hi- Sorry to hear your having a problem.

Try this
1 - make sure the monitor cable is in and tight and plugged into the power with no wobble.
2 - check the monitor on another pc
3- if on board video make sure the video is 'on' - if a used board sometimes the on board is shut off to allow better communication with an add on card.
4- if an add on card - pull and put it in another slot
5- try another add on video card
6 - try your video card in another machine
7 - take it to staples for a 'tune up' and see what they say - they offer free tune ups and they would soon discover the problem for you and if it is a card they will gladly sell you a replacement,

There is also the ram - please remove all but one stick of ram and try booting the pc - if it works and the monitor works you will need to adjust your ram to something that works.

I hope this works for you and gets you going in the right direction.
Please rate me and let us know if this works.
Thanks

Monitor shows VGA no input signal DVI no input signal then monito going to sleep


This sounds like a video card driver issue or the card it self. Make sure all cables are plugged in snug. Once done try to boot in to safe mode by restarting the computer and while it is starting keep on tapping key F8 and choose safe mode. If this works it is driver issue. If nothing happens it is the card it self. Might have to take it to a authorized repair shop. Hope this helps.

Compaq presario sr1115cl wont power up


Remove the power supply after everything is unplugged and take it to your nearest electronics store. They should have a tester there. This is probably the problem.
