    The beeps are the motherboard telling you what's wrong.



    Can you count out the beeps and tell us what they are?

My hpw1907 monitor says no input and wont display anything. The cpu also makes 1 beeping noise that last 1 second nd doesnt come back


A one second beep from the computer is standard for a proper boot.
Do you have a TV that you can plug your computer into to see if it is posting video? That would be the easiest way to test if it is a computer or monitor thing.

My acer veriton desk top is not booting up and giving a beep continues beep also moniter is not displyaing omething


This is likely a result of the computer not recognizing the monitor. During the POST test during startup,the computer will check for a video output. It can range from the video card failing to just not having the monitor plugged in. I would check you connections, perhaps try a different monitor, even a television that has either HDMI, DVI, or VGA input. If that does not fix it, it is likely your graphics card or on board graphics from the motherboard. Is there anything new since the last time the computer worked? How old is your PC?

I have recently built a new PC with an Asus P8H61-M and upon turning the PC on I am recieving no Visual on either of my monitors


Hello

If this is the first time to turn you on your computer check first the power supply of your computer if connected to their proper connector. Check your memory if clip properly in there memory slot. If you are using Video Card check it if it is properly connected to the connector. Then connect your VGA connector at the back of your computer when you have video card connect the VGA Cable of you monitor to the video card VGA output if does not have connect it with the onboard VGA output. Then press the power switch if the unit is still no visual in monitor try to search or hear a beeping sound in your computer by its on board buzzer. Find which beep you hear from your computer.

No Beep- No Power, Loose Card, or Short.
One Short Beep- Normal Post,, Computer is OK.
2 Short Beep- POST error, review screen for error code
Continues Beep- No power, Loose Card, or Short
Repeating Short Beep- No Power Loose Card or Short
One Long And Short Beep- Motherboard Issue
One Long and Two Short Beep- Video (mono/CGA Display Circuitry) Issue.
One long and three short beep- Video (EGA) Display Circuitry
Three Long Beep- Keyboard/ Keyboard Card Error
One Beep, Blank or Incorrect Display -Video Display Circuitry

Hope this help with your problem. Keep on touch in fixya

Asus led monitor model vh197 shows no signal on screen and no display ,screen became dark


Good Day Dasarathi!

Please check the VGA cable if its properly connected and make sure two screws are fixed to both end connecting the monitor and the video card.

No signal comes out when there is no signal from the video card to the monitor. That is why you need to check if the VGA cable is fix to both end.

If that did not fix it, you will need to open the casing of your computer. Disconnect the video card from the motherboard. Gently clean by wiping a clean clothe over the contact surface of the video card. Then, reseat the video card properly to the slot in the motherboard. Return the casing cover and connect the VGA cable again.

Just remember doing the above procedure is only when the computer is turn off.

Turn on your PC and see if that fix it.

You will need to replace the video card if by booting the PC you will hear a series of beep codes. If no beeps then you are lucky VGA cable is the faulty one.

1st you separate you monitor from you Computer.
  • Now On your Monitor and check there is Faint beeping noise.
  • If there is no noise and after sometime the monitor light will change in orange colour.
  • It means there is no fault in monitor.

  • You Check the VGA Card.
  • I think there is problem with your VGA Card.

I turned on my hp dx 2450 pc and the screen said ''no signal input'' why?


Well, make sure the screen is connected to your graphics card (via VGA, HDMI, etc). If it is and there is still no signal, check to see if your computer is making the usual boot noises, beeping, fans turning on, etc. If it turns on normally, it is most likely your graphics card (if you have a separate one) or your motherboard if it has built in graphics.

Good luck, contact me if you need more help.

Blank display, machine seems to boot ok but display is blank.


If you hear your computer beep once then your system has no problem. If it does'nt show a display, try to check the power of your monitor, if it has power. Check the power cords and also the vga connection.
