    No all I did was put in a sata hardrive before that is was working fine since then I've taken that hardrive out thinking it could be the cause of it but so far same problem

  • Moopin607 Sep 18, 2008

    been playing with it for a few hours forgot to remove the sata cable from the motherboard from the hardrive I removed no more strange black screen with random numbers and symbols now but my monitor doesnt seem to want to click on anymore still, everything else seems to come on though, this has happend once before I took everything out of the pc and left it alone for a few hours came back and everything worked fine again but anything else that could help would be nice.

You need to install the sata driver for the hard drive. watch closely at the beginning of the install and you will see it ask you to hit one of the f keys (i can't recall which one at the moment) to install the driver.
so go to the website of the hard drive manufacturer and download the driver.... put that on a floppy disk and install the driver... you should be good to go after that.

Asus p5n-e sli will no longer stay on for more then a few seconds


You go to AVIRA dot com and download the boot tool, or go to BITDEFENDER and run an online scan, you don't put in a new HDD just because you had a virus, it sounds like you had a problem and thought it was a virus.

Read you manual, plug in the Sata drive into Sata 1.

Do you mean BIOS post, if you don't even see the BIOS post, check your monitor with another PC.

There is only one correct power switch pin, a , + and - pin, how can you switch, there is no such thing as switching.

Mabee the hard drive has failed . try entering bios and see if the hard drive is recognised .If not try turning the computer off unplug it then reconnect the drive data cable and power cable
then re- start the computer and see if it is recognised. some models of older hard drives needed a driver installed during set up -- you usually have to put the driver on a floppy disc and hit the f6 button when prompted by windows set up to install third party drivers . I hope this helps

Monitor stays black until boot up to Desktop


you use a graphics card as your main output?
and you have onboard graphics output too that you dont use?
if so then you will have to plug your monitor lead into the onboard output socket to see bios. i think you need to go into bios and change which device starts from boot.
it sounds like you have the onboard graphics as your boot device and windows using the graphics card.

Screen stays black


Try using a different monitor if you have one available, or disconnect the monitor from the computer and then turn it on. If you see a logo or color bar or message saying no signal, then your monitor is OK and you should take a look at your video card.

If you suspect your video card, there is very little you can do with a no video situation. but one thing you can do is to remove the video card completely and wait for a few minutes. then put it back in and try to start your computer. This is just in case you have corrupted video memory keeping it from functioning. otherwise, replace the card.

In the case that your video is built into you computer, buy a new card and disable the onboard video in the BIOS. That will take some browsing in the BIOS setup, but it shold be fairly easy to find. once it is disabled, the new card will be able to function and you should be ok from there. Otherwise, it's motherboard replacement time.

Black Screen


try hooking up an external video source. Check to see if the computer is actually booting up. if the computer boots up, then the LCD invertor or Backlight of the screen is bad, need to be replaced.

If the computer does not boot up after hooking up an external video source, then most likely your motherboard is bad!


need to be replaced.

On Pwr up logo appears then LCD returns to stanby Black screen


I will assume the monitor is staying on during the boot process all the way until Windows loads.
If that is the case, then...
  • Start the computer
  • wait until the initial bios/logo screens for your motherboard go away.
  • Press F8 to get the Windows recovery boot menu
  • If you see the Windows Logo you would normally see then press rest and try again.
  • In the recovery screen, select SAFE MODE
  • Boot into Windows and uninstall your video card.
  • Reboot the computer the normal way through the start menu.
  • When your PC starts back up it should then reinstall the video card, and set itself automatically back to 60khz as default.
Let me know how you go =)
