Question about Computers & Internet

Monitor communication This morning after I updated the RAM in my dx2200 I turned it on. It came on fine but the monitor was not receiving a signal. I tested the computer with a different monitor and it did not receive signal either. I tested both monitors with a different computer and they work fine. As far as I can tell without a monitor the computer is work OK. Is this an issue with the motherboard or something that can be repaired? These items were working fine yesterday and have been for at least 8 months.

Monitor usually work fine without too uch porblem. but when it goes, it goes.
in your case. I suspect the video card may have pop out of the socket.
I don't see any other things can go wrong. I assume you change the RAM only and didn't touch anything else in the box.

turn off the machine. and reseat all or the device card.

Hi, Remove all ram from the computer, try starting it up, it will beep. Turn the computer off. Add the original ram. and try to start up again. You should get picture. 
After this you can try adding the extra ram. If it doesn't work repeat what I told you and then possibly replace the ram you have bought if the problem doesn't go away after a few tries.

Upgrade BIOS to see if it will resolve hardware issue with new stick of RAM


Hi Szusza,

The new RAM module you purchased may be faulty, it is definitely possible that either due to a fault of the new RAM or on the slot you are trying to install it to cause the computer to not fully boot.

Have you tried to boot the computer with the new module only?
If not please try this:

Replace the original RAM module with the new one (make sure you insert the new RAM in the same slot you took the old one out)
If the PC boots you know the new RAM is fine.
If this does not work I would suggest getting your new RAM tested.

If it does work, put the original RAM back in the computer (in a new slot) if it does not boot after that then, there is possibly a problem with the RAM slot on the motherboard.

Worked fine last night, discovered it this morning still turned on but no signal to monitor. Rebooted and it began a consistent beeping with no signal to monitor. Unplugged several times to no avail....


the beeping is coming from the cpu.

1 unplug pc
2 pull out ram chips
3 use an eraser to clean the gold, yes thats gold

what happens is the gold on the ram oxidizes and does not connect properly and can go bad but cleaning it with an eraser sometimes works. take a cpu that is working unplu it pull the ram and you will see the same thing your other pc is doing.

4 reinstall ram (correctly)
5 boot up cpu
6 please vote.

Computer stopped communicating with the monitor & keyboard


I agree, if you did a combo of keystrokes (re: cntrl+F5 for monitor) thats only a shortcut keystroke and should be able to do and undo all changes in "control panel">"display">"settings">advanced
