IF THE COMMUNICATION PORT FOR YOUR DEVICE IS NOT UNBOARD THAT IS IF THE KEYBOARD, MOUSE AND YOUR VGA CARD ARE THE REPLACEABLE ONE, TRY TO CHANGE THOSE CARDS THEY MIGHT NOT OK ANY MORE. IF YOU STILL HAVE SAME PROBLEM THEN THE MAINBOARD IS NOT OK, ALSO, YOU CAN CHECK YOU MEMMORY CARD THAT IS RAM IF YOU DON'T ATTACH IT PROPERLY IS CAN CAUSE THE PC NOT TO BOOT. IF IS RAM FAULT YOU WILL BE HEARING SOUND FROM YOUR BOARD, ATTACH IT PROPERLY.

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electical extensions


even something as small as an electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs all electrical power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free

restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard

motherboard to hard drive leads

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
one bad lead will end with a computer error a computer needs its connections continue its cycle and have an end to function properly

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

hope this helps

Keeps telling me no signal


The motherboard is not telling you there is no signal, the monitor is..
In this order:

  1. Test the connection from graphics card to monitor, try a different monitor to eliminate this from the issues.
  2. If other monitor works, the old one is causing the problems
  3. If new monitor does not work:
  • Check the graphics card is seated properly, if possible, test with another graphics card, if this works, the issue is with the graphics card
  • If this does not work, check the fan on the cpu, is it spinning? If not, make sure the fan is connected to the motherboard
  • If the fan is spinning, remove all the ram, reboot, you should get a series of beeps, make note of these and repost them (computer will not boot)
  • If you get NO beeps with ram removed, the CPU or motherboard are possibly dead, if possible, replace CPU with known working one and retest with and without ram in, make sure you have thermal grease on the CPU>heatsink. Replace the Ram (or one module)
  • If you get a single beep and the motherboard powers the monitor, the CPU was your issue
  • If you get no beeps, confirmed death of motherboard.
Possible other solutions: Remove CMOS battery, leave for 1 minute and then replace, see if it boots
Check the power switch from the computer front panel is not sticking

No Signal


No signal on screen means that there is no input for your monitor from the PC.

1. There might be problem in your PC or in the cable connected to PC from monitor.
2. Your PC might damage that it could not send signal to the monitor.
2.1 In your Motherboard might be faulty in the VGA chips.
2.2 In your Motherboard's SMPS mean power supply.

I think you can got my point. If you are tech person it will help you, otherwise you should take a tour to any service centre.

Thanks & Goodluck

I've seen situations similar to yours several times and they've always been a bad CPU.  Since you tried a new video card it's not that, I would suggest a new CPU.  Check on ebay, you can usually find used one's on there.
