I have inherited a HP Evo mini tower. The systems have been wiped clean, which is OK with me. When I tried to reboot to clean install, the moniter does not recognise the tower and remains balnk. I have haave tried to reset CMOS, have disconnected all drives to reduce conflict, yet i expected to see some indiocation that the CMOS has kicked in...nothing. Power is getting through to the MoBO, fans etc are working, LEDs are lighting up but that is a far as I am able to get.
I can go no further until I can get the monitor to work. I have tried three different monitors and the results for all three is the same.

I don't know if you have done anything lately,ie; updates to board, cahnge of cables, etc. but first, try shutting down system, unplug your cable for video, unplug tour tower, plug tower back in and restart. If this doesn't work. You may want to try a system restore back to when you had a picture. Try this and let me know if this worked by adding comment or reply at the end of solution. Dave
From what you are descrbing it sounds like a PSU issue
Please try the following
1) Remove all the wires from the PC
2) Press and hold the power button in for about 10 seconds (yes i know there is no power :) )
3) Plug everything back in and retry, if it still fails the Power supply will need to be changed
The Power supply can be swapped out at any decent PC repair shop and is quite cheap to do
Hello, Firstly, remove the RAM and turn on the system, if you hear the beep sound continuously that means everything is perfect expect RAM. Clean the track of RAM at both sides by pencil eraser completely. Also clean the port of RAM.
Secondly reinstall the CPU with CPU FAN and also clean the FAN.
Third one is that remove all the add-on's card and than turn on the system.
no, its working as you said. try to uninstall your video if you installed to expansion slot (agp) then use the on board. that is one of the most common problems of pc specially when you're moving this from one place to another. if it boots from your onboard vga clean your uninstalled video card then reinstall to your agp. i hope that this helps you
no video and no post beep suggest a serious fault, most likely in CPU or mainbard, but occasionaly ive seen that really bad ram can prevent a system from booting, start with changing the ram, and CPU if needed, if either of those dont work, mainboard sounds shot
Depends on what CPU you have stuck in it. Any micro atx AM2 mb will work as long as you know what power rating the cpu is 65w,85w95w. With HP and the rest of the crappy inti-graded mb using companies they like to use there own board connector which will not work with an after market. All you need is an old chasis tower pull the single pins off the wires and place them on the HP chasis wires getting rid of the 6 in 1 connector pin they use. After that you can use any after market like mother board in that tower.
