Re: Monitor not Running(shows only orange light)

Unplug everything from the motherboard leaving only processor, fan and memory and try to boot up. It will take you to bios screen halt after looking for boot device. If it uses a video card, make sure video card is properly inserted. Then start plugging in hard drive and other devices if system comes up.

HD3870x2 dont run on my P5kpl-AM

Are you sure your monitor is OK ? I had similar issue, but monitor was fault. It showed picture then went black.

Try in dark, when it goes off, with the LAMP (LED or something) and point it to your monitor, if you see picture, I believe your monitor lights are out ..

I would suggest to try with another monitor to rule out monitor, after that you should check graphic card, try runing some benchmark tests, .. usually issues are connected with temperatures or bad memory.

L no display

If it seems like it booted up, you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights, (except the display is black) then try the steps below.

For a laptop:

Shine a flashlight on the dark screen to see if you barely see the icons on the desktop. If so, then the LCD Inverter is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

If you see no icons by shinning a flash light and the external monitor works, then your screen is bad. If you see no icons by shinning the flash light and nothing shows on the external monitor, then most likely your video card is bad.

For a Desktop:

Try using another monitor on the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor shows the display then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does not show on the display then you Video Card is bad.

Hello there,

OK this problem could be many things or could just be the input on the monitor so lets start at the beginning and go from there one step at a time making sure we check it all .

also i could use more information do you hear the hard drives going i know you said you can hear the Fans so we know the power supply is working on the Fans but is it working for the Hard drive's? System make and model if you have one, if you did a home build give me the system Specs.

Step: 1 Check the connections all the wires/Cables the Power cord make sure both ends are plugged in correctly, check the Monitor Cable Making sure the VGA is also plugged in correctly both Ends.
Step: 2 Check the input on the Monitor if you are using VGA make sure you are on the correct input and so on .
Step: 3 if you have another monitor to another PC or maybe an older one connect it and Test to see if you have a bad monitor .

if all these Steps Fail let me know and we keep going . i hope we can get this problem Fixed

Cpu lead lights on but no display in monitor

check the RAM condition, For that remove the RAM from mother board and clean the two side of RAM contact terminals wiping with the eraser and insert it again into the mother board.

if you have using more than one ram just remove both the RAMs reinsert one by one after cleaning the RAMs one by one .

Have emachines W2060. Can't get screen to show

Hi Joe,

Could be one of several things:

1) Monitor cable connection loose.
2) Video card (if you have one) not seated, or bad.
3) RAM module not seated, bad, or wrong kind. (If you have not messed with the RAM, probably not one of these.)
4) If your video is integrated into the motherboard (no video card) your motherboard may be bad. Installing a separate card could correct this.
5) Bad monitor.

Have you made any changes to your system when this happened?

Try to connect another monitor/cable to your computer and try your monitor on a friend's computer to see if it works.

Comment back with any updates.

Thanks for using Fixya.

This type of problem is so common nowadays. What I did is open up the casing, pulled out the RAM and by using pencil eraser, rubbed the contact pattern. Put it back and turn on your computer. Always work for me and hope it might work for you too.
