I haven't encounter this one, but you may want to check whether your CPU extra power is plugged in. Also, seclude the problem by checking if it is the power supply or the video card that is causing the problem. Remove the videocard and use the old one and check if it passes through. How much power can your power supply give and what model is your videocard?

Power comes on no video, monitor works

Try hitting the F8 key or what ever is the key for safe mode, or try F11 for boot menu, if boot menu shows boot to hard drive.

If these don't work, unplug the PC, then hold the power button until the lights flash or hit again and make sure lights don't flash on.

remove the side cover, touch metal, then remove the little round battery for 5mins, replace, plug in, hit power, not hit the delete key and try to boot into the BIOS, you will need to set the date and time. then move to exit and save changes and exit.

The monitor to my dell optiplex GX520 is displaying an "Input not supported" error. I suspect i need a new video card but want to try all options before going to the store. Is there anyway i can...


Yes there is. You will need to boot your pc into safe mode or VGA mode depending on the operating system. To do this when the computer boots up after the initial bios screen hit f8 and you will be prompted to boot into windows normally or safemode and some other options. Boot into safemode and place your video card at the lowest setings. Also you can update your drivers from here.

If you have windows 7 you have more options to play with on the f8 boot menu, they are pretty self explanatory but you may need to enter advanced options.

If still nothing please write me back and we can go from there.

If my answer helped you today please give four thumbs up as thanks!

Video stopped working... pc starts to boot ok, then monitor shuts off as there is no signal to it. This is a refurb pc that I've had for only 6 months. How do I know if its the board or the video...

see if you can boot to the Safe mode (F8 at boot, or F12 boot menu, selected HDD, press enter then F8 immediately) see if you get video. If you do, reboot again, on the F8 menu, select Low Resolution or VGA mode (Depending on Windows Version) and see if you have video, if you do then see if you can increase the resolution to the optimal of the monitor (It may be the display settings are too high for the monitor)
If you can boot to the Safe mode but not the VGA mode, the issue is the video driver.
If you have no video in the Safe mode, then the graphics adapter is likely bad

Shuts down on boot up

hi sir,

Does it just shuts down or it reboots?
If it shuts down this type of problems can be resolved by scanning the computer for a virus or
using the Windows Repair Disks. During boot if you can hit F8 and use safemode with command and prompt.

1 Type CHKDSK/F then hit enter
2 Press Y then hit Enter then reboot to see if this works.

If it reboots while booting up then.

Other things that might be preventing the computer to boot up most likely is the memory.
Take out the memory put it on a different slot or try a new memory.
Also make sure that the power supply fans are not dirty this prevents the computer to bootup.

My computer is stuck in safemode. it load in asfe mode even if i put normal mode on?

Ok at boot up press F8, when the Menu comes up, choose Safe Mode, but this time instead of going to the desktop, choose System Restore, follow instructions, and when the Calender type window comes up, simply choose a time BEFORE, the time it went faulty. This should completely restore you to working again. As long as there are NO other problems. -

Only load up to windows prompt

Try boot the computer to the safe mode..

  1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.
  2. Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.
  3. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER
Let me know if that worked.

I have just install a new video card on my Dell 1100 desk top

Try booting the PC in safe mode.
Before Windows starts loading during startup, keep pressing F8, a menu should pop up. Select Safe Mode, then, when the PC has booted, you install the graphics cards drivers. Then set the resolution back to its minimal value in the control panel and restart it normally.

I hope this helps,

Installed new graphics card and Windows won't start

If your new video card has a power connector, make sure it is connected to a power plug. If you already did that, it's possible your PC's power supply doesn't have enough power to run all your connected equipment.

To get your old card running, hit F8 repeatedly during boot-up until you get the boot options. Select VGA mode. It should boot up properly then.

Once booted into VGA mode, set your screen resolution to something simple like 1024x768 or 800x600, then reboot.

If that doesn't work, try hitting F5 repeatedly during boot-up to boot into Safe mode. You can then adjust your settings again there.
