There are beep codes that tell you problems.

No video with beeps means that there is no memory or bad memory on the motherboard, also -
No video with beeps means that there is no working video adapter on the motherboard.
No video with beeps means that there is no working processor on the motherboard.

I recommend re-seated the ram and the video card, if there is one.
Hope this helps
G'luck

Beeping sound when starting


Usually when you first turn the power on ... it's usual to hear a couple of beeping sounds . And then, you may hear whirling/clicking sounds when your disk starts up (rotating) and your CD/DVD drive starts up, etc.. Then the monitor/screen lights up and starts to show the operating system (e.g. Windows) panel ... as it starts up.

If your system just beeps ... and beeps ... and beeps... and nothing else happens, the screen doesn't light up and show anything (for a few minutes), it likely the system is not starting up properly.

If you can clarify what actually happens, maybe I can offer more suggestions/information to help.

Blank screen when Gateway GM5664 turned on


How do you know your mouse and keyboard work if you have a blank screen?

What motherboard did you put in it? Did you install a video card or using a built in video card? How many beeps? Do you have a spare video card to put in the system and try that?

Hp pavilion a1220n comptur will not start unplugged unit and when i plugged to back in it would not start


Do you see anything on the monitor screen? Does the tower make any beeping noise or clicking noise, or does the fan tries to start up when you power the computer on? Are the cables connected properly?
If you see anything on the monitor screen, or if you hear a beeping sound, let us know so we can diagnose further.

The computer does not fully boot when turned on, and the tower makes a continuous beeping sound. The monitor works fine, the problem is the tower. The tower just keeps on beeping without turning on or...


Hello

That beep could mean alot of things, but probably a VIDEO CARD or RAM has become unseated.

If you feel comfortable with this, UNPLUG THE COMPUTER take off the case, remove and reinsert the ram chips, and the cards. You might need a screwdriver or two, and a LIGHT. The ram tabs are small.

Good Luck

I can turn my laptop on but the screen is black


Hi,


Do you hear a beeping sound when turning it on? Try connecting an external monitor (Desktop monitor) then press FN+F8 (Dell laptop only) and FN+F4 (HP laptop only). If it works on an external monitor, you may need to contact your computer manufacturer. check the warranty and request for an LCD monitor replacement.

If you hear a beeping sound when turning on your laptop or no power (no light). you may need to reseat the memory (RAM) or check the AC adapter (power adapter).

Let me also know the system model and computer manufacturer.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.

Monitor did not responding


When you first power on a computer it checks itself out for proper operation even before you see anything on the screen. This process is called Power On Self Test, as no video is yet displayed and moreover there may even be a video problem the computer sends out beeps over its internal speaker to indicate its status. Usually you will just hear one beep then the computer will "come to life", if however there are any problems you hear a series of beeps. For a description of these beeps and what they mean please click here. Hope this helps !!
