This is infact your video card and it can be the power supply if the burnt cable is connected to ur video card
the monitor is fine but about the burnt cable on your power supply
make sure you buy electrical tape and tape that up as soon as possible because if that burnt cable touches any part of your motherboard or anything else it will instantly fry everything which means damage everything which means ...
on the worst case scenario that has already happened

I have a problem getting a signal to the monitor. So I took the side panel off and I see this large ribbon wire thats hooked up to the motherboard on one end and nothing on the other. It's labeled FDD. So...

Yes. It's a flat ribbon cable with 34 wires in it. Goes to a Floppy Disk Drive.
Shouldn't be connected to the motherboard without a Floppy Drive attached, but in reality will do no harm.

What is the computer manufacturers name and Model Number? Back of the computer next to the Windows product key, or up on the side of the tower.
Tell me about the problem of getting a signal to the monitor.

Monitor shows No Signal?
Good. This indicates the monitor is okay.

Have you tried to replace the monitor cable, IF it detaches?
Have you tried a KNOWN to be working monitor, AND it's monitor cable?
Same symptom?

Computer is bad. No Video Signal is being produced by the computer.

Three things to check before you concern yourself with the graphics on the motherboard.
Suggest when you perform number 1 below, that you also perform number 2.

1) Clean out the inside of the computer with a can of compressed air for computers.
pay special attention to the Processor Fan, and Heatsink sitting on the Processor.
(Or front computer case fan, and Heatsink sitting on the Processor)

[Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.
Observe Anti-Static Precautions ]

2) Ram Memory:
Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open.
Observe Anti-Static Precautions, remove all Ram Memory module/s. ('Stick/s')

Clean the gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the Ram Memory module/s, with a pencil eraser.
Rub the eraser up and down on EACH contact pin.
If you are not using a solid eraser, and one on the end of a pencil, refrain from letting the metal band touch the contact pins.

Use air to remove the eraser dust.
You can use a can of compressed air for computers if available, or air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.
Reinstall the Ram Memory module/s.
Plug the computer into power.


3) Bad Power Supply. Weak voltage power rail.
One of the leading causes of computer failure.

Sometimes brought on by the fact the computer is dirty inside, (As well as inside the Power Supply's case), and sometimes brought on by the fact the computer manufacturer used a low quality Power Supply.

Enough power to light LED lights, and maybe spin fans, but Not enough power to turn the Processor on.

A) ALL of the LED lights on at once use less than 1 Watt of power.

B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power

C) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power. Depends on what Processor it is.

Hi. i have no signal to monitor, keyboard flashes lights then nothing, mouse stays lit, can hear drive attempt to start..! Motherboard ?

make sure this hard drive is getting power

Test or replace your PSU power supply unit

one bad/faulty lead can cause a computer with lots of problems continually rebooting or failing to detect your drive

replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

hope this helps?

My computer was built piece by piece worked just fine Some problem occurred that made taking apart my Computer necessary When I reassembled it it no longer worked. It turns on the fan goes for a sec or 2...


This could be anything from a faulty graphics card, bad power supply or even the motherboard.

What you need to do is disconnect all of the hardware except the motherboard, power supply and memory. Then try turning the machine on.

If it turns on start putting things back one at a time to see which item is causing the machine not to start.

If it won't turn on with just the memory and power supply installed then you either have a faulty motherboard or power supply, but to test these you have to check the voltage on the power supply which isn't easy.

Your best bet would be to get a compatible working power supply and hook that up.
If it still won't fire up then you know the motherboard has come to the end of its life and needs replacing.

Let me know if there is anything else.

Good luck and regards.

Do you have an separate VGA card to try and then hook your monitor up to this card.
Actually does the rest of the PC work. Powers up fine and and keyboard and mouse seem to work?

Power on intermittant

I've ran into this before with computers turning on sometimes and other times not turning on. Sometimes even totally dead computers.

Her is what I would suggest.

Get a known good working power supply and try that and see if that takes care of the problem. It can possibly be that there might be some bad capacitors in the power supply that are faulty enough to cause intermittent problems.

If that doesn't take care of the problem then go ahead and reseat the CPU and memory as this can cause problems like this as well.

Also if this doesn't work, only hook up the power to the motherboard, meaning the main connector and the p4 connector. Try turning it on and do this a number of times and see if you can get the machine to turn on and off the way you want.

If you can then you know its another component that is causing problems, and at that point it could be the hard drive, dvd drive or any other pieces of hardware thats in there.

If you can't get the computer to turn on the way you want even just hooking up the bare minimums then the motherboard is going bad on you.

Asus A7V8X MX SE loooong beeps

It is either a memory issue or the power supply issue....

Try to reset memory modules.....If the machine still beeps after this and there is different memory modules installed try to remove each and boot(switch on) verify if any memory module is faulty.....if this doesnt work try replacing the memory.

If the problem persists try to verify if the power supply is ok.....
