The computer does nothing its stuck in test mode

Its stuck in test mode. it says monitor is ok but thats it. I tried to shut it down but the power button does nothing so i unplugged it. when i plugged it back in it should have stayed off but as soon as i plugged it in the tower came back on. also the cd and dvd drives dont even open at all. so as stated before the comp is stuck in test mode which is a black screen.

When i turn on my pc i hear a noise but in my screen i don't see nothing


Do you see any activity from the hard drive lights or do you hear a single beep from the computer speaker? If yes do you have an flat screen or a CRT monitor and do you have a power on LED illuminated on the monitor? Can you see any output accessing the menu mode of the monitor? If yes check your cable from the monitor to video card to make sure it is plugged in. If no it could be your monitor or video card and you will need to test the monitor on another system. If you press the power key once for a second will the computer immediately shut off? if yes the problem could be the mother board or power supply. You need to test the power supply if it is good suspect mother board or CPU. If the system shuts down within a minute then test the video card.

Computer will turn on but wont stay on


Most likely your power supply is faulty. You can test it with a voltmeter to determine if this is the cause or if it's the motherboard.

My tower has power but won't come on


first guess is the motherboard is bad

a few things you can try:

unhook the monitor from the computer and test it on another computer. If the monitor works then its most likely the motherboard.

leave the computer unplugged for a few hours then plug it back up and give it another try just in case it overheated.

have the computers power supply tested as a bad power supply can cause all sorts of issues.

other than that you are down to a new motherboard and or a new computer.

Hmm... is still not working


Start your computer and tap the F8 key as soon as the computer begins to power-up. Keep tapping until you come to the Safe Mode screen. When the screen alerts you to the fact that you have chosen Safe Mode, click OK.

When you get to the desktop go to the control panel and launch System Properties. Go to Hardware and Device manager. Click the arrow next to the Display Adapter. Point at the adapter, right click and chooser Properties. Click the Driver Tab. Roll back the video driver to previous driver.

If indeed you have installed a new driver that is not compatible with your video card, then rolling it back to the original may very well take care of this problem.

Good luck!
