It is probably the video card, if you have checked the monitor, that is about all that would cause this.
How did you check the monitor? Did you connect it to another PC and it worked with not problems? If so, change the video card and you will have your display back again. Your son on MSN is probably not connected to the problem. Everything works just perfect, right up until it fails!!! And everything will fail at some time or another, your son had the bad luck of being the one on the computer last.

Let me know if I can be of more help,

Dave

If you replaced the CMOS battery, you need to go into the BIOS settings and make sure that the date and time are correct and all the settings are ok. There should be an option to restore default settings. Save and exit. Then try again. Make sure that the boot order is set correctly too.

Changed cpu on packard bell imedia d3318, still getting no signal on monitor and no beeps. When I remove the cpu and power on, there are no beeps


Have you check with different RAM, Did you try to reset BIOS by removing the CMOS battery and shorting CMOS jumper? Your Processor may be ok but you are plying with it. When there use to be no display then first thing you should doubt with the CMOS battery and the RAM and Motherboard, rather then CPU, CPU hardly gives problem.

How can i reset the cmos in my ms200 all in one computer?? it shows that my hasrd drive is not working, and it is really working in other computer


Hi,

To reset the CMOS the easiest way is, remove the motherboard battery for ten minute then install it again. It will clear the CMOS. Then reset the CMOS/BIOS setup, date/ time etc. Another way to clear CMOS is, reset the CMOS Jumper in motherboard.

To detect your hard drive you can try to check by change the hard drive cables. Change the port in motherboard. Check the BIOS setup and reset it if need.

There is no display in the monitor when power is on. how to repam


1. Check with the Power supply:

2. Check with the Hard Disk:
Most probably, your hard disk doesn't work. First check the IDE or SATA cable connecting your motherboard and the HDD. Detach first cable wires and then reconnect it. Try to put it on. IF still it doesn't try to replace a cable (IDE or SATA). If it still don't work with that. Have another computer and slave the HDD from the PC not displayed and check disk by running a DOS Command prompt by typing "cmd" then type "chkdsk" to see if the HDD works.

3. If the hard disk is ok, try to use another computer replace it with the Power Supply from the computer that doesn't display. When it is connected, switch on press "del" or "F1" or "F2" to log to CMOS. Try to look for "Health PC" section and try to see if the battery is ok. One way to determine the power is ok is looking at power input to 12 v to 12.6v. If it's lower than 12v your power supply must be replaced.

Try one of these steps.
