It could be the video card or the monitor.
If the video card, then sometimes checking everything in the system settings can identify the problem. Otherwise, update the drivers for it.
It could also be time to get a new monitor.

What would cause a DELL Inspiron 580 that powers on fail to display anything on the monitor?

You were right that 4 beeps was RAM. Now though, if you're getting no display .. I'm wondering if something may have been bumped etc when you were having to get in the machine. You might want to reseat the video card (if not mainboard video). Note :: Before attaching or detaching monitor cables, be sure the monitor is off as well as the computer. Only usb is safe to manipulate with power on.

First step before doing anything is to make sure all power is off and disconnected from the computer .. and anything connected to it is off too. (not just in standby) .. ok, now that's done, continue..

I'd advise checking any other cables that could have been affected during opening / closing etc .. you may wish to pull & reseat any sata cables going to drives, remove and reseat the video card and generally make sure nothing is on crooked. Sometimes, even connections in a new computer can look fine but until reseated (disconnected & reconnected) they won't work quite right or intermittently.

Hope that helps get you up and going. If not, update here with any other info you may think of. Thanks.!

Asus crosshair socket am2 motherboard not booting

Sounds like your monitor is bad. Try another monitor because if the video card was bad and the monitor is working you would get a No Signal message on the screen. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does the same as your original monitor and does not display anything, then there is an issue with your video card.

My laptop not showing anything after switchng on

So, is it powering on and sounds like it's booting up but there is nothing on the display screen? Or is it just not powering on at all?

I will assume it is powering on and booting up, but you don't see anything on the lcd screen.

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barelysee the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can beany kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vgacable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves yourvideo card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you rebootwithout you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN(Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correctkey for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key willnormally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works,then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash lightand nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card isbad.

No display

did you install anything new or update your OS prior to this?, if so try to restore it using the rescue disc. But first try to enter BIOS while boot up to ensure you are getting a display & when you do so enter all default settings(F5).
Hope this helps.

Dell PowerEdge 1600sc server won't boot.

Damaged boot-record on the disk-drive???

Was it configured to try to boot from 'A:' ?
Disconnect the hard-drive & CD/DVD drives.
Put a diskette into the drive, and see if it tries to find a boot-record on the diskette.
If it tries, then it has P.O.S.T.'d correctly.

> no beep codes

When it worked, did it beep _once_ when P.O.S.T. completed?

Taking out the RAM _should_ cause some beep codes, i.e., "no RAM".

> anyone?

Replace the monitor?

Replace a dead video-card?
Or, add-in a video-card, and connect a monitor to it, leaving the original monitor connected to the original video-card. One of the two displays should show the P.O.S.T.

Out of frquancy range monitor problem how to solve the problem & the 50% of the monitor screen are plack

Sounds like you have the resolution to high.
Boot in safe mode to see if that works fine, if yes, then try default settings for the display driver. Continued use like this could damamge the display. If that does not fix it then return it where you purchased the unit.

Cannot display anything at all,sounds it is working but, cannot dispaly boot screen and rest???

Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Latitude D820. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor has no display, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.

Envision EN7410e monitor

Just fixed mine. Maybe it's a few years late. Hope you guys still have the display. It's the power supply board. I've just replaced 4 bulge capacitors near one edge of the PS. They are 2x1000uF 10V, 1x470uF 25V & 1x470 10V. I salvaged my parts from an old CRT monitor. Hey you can go green with your repairs too!
