How to trouble shoot no display problem in PC


Mostly the prolem comes with PCs is no display. When such situation comes we can try following DIY and 90% the faulty part could be diagnosed:
1.Unplug the VGA cable of the monutor and if monitor shows some message (check signal cable) monitor is ok
2.First check for the power whether LEDs are blinking?If yes power unit is fine.
3.Check for the responses of the kwyboard LEDs, if after switching on LEDs are blinking processor is ok otherwise there is some issue with Processor.(Note it might not blink if the mainboard is burned)
4.Try to press num lock key if the LED is responding most probably this is the issue with RAM otherwise with Mainboard.

Thanks

Dell backlight indicators


A computer monitor has a front-mounted LED that displays its current status and flashes in the event of an error. When an error occurs, the flashing may be accompanied by an error message on the screen. If the screen does not display an error message, the problem most likely falls into one of four common categories.

Unsupported Display Mode A video card has the ability to send output to the monitor at many display resolutions and refresh rates. However, no single monitor is capable of supporting every possible display mode. When the video card sends an unsupported display mode to the monitor, the monitor shuts off to prevent damage and blinks, or displays an error message. Standby Mode b> When a monitor detects no video signal from the computer, it assumes that you have turned the computer off and enters standby mode to reduce power consumption. Dell and HP monitors display an amber light when in standby mode. The status light on an Apple monitor blinks slowly. Incorrect Power Supply Some monitors such as certain Apple Cinema and Studio displays use external power adapters. Because different power adapters may have similar connectors, these monitors are designed to detect when an incorrect power supply is connected and blink the status LED rather than attempting to turn on. In the case of an Apple display, the LED blinks in an alternating short and long pattern. b> Backlight Failure b> A flat panel LCD display has an LED or fluorescent backlight that illuminates the pixels and makes it possible to see the contents of the screen. If the backlight fails and requires replacement, the monitor is unable to display any information. In some cases, you may be able to resolve this issue by turning the monitor and computer off, disconnecting and reseating all cables. If the monitor still has a backlight issue, it requires professional service.

I have HCL Ezeebee desktop computer when we boot the system monitor, keyboard, mouse blink for a while and monitor (HCL) show 'no signal' message, and keyboard num lock led not display mouse i


No signal at the monitor indicates (if you know the monitor is working ok) a failure of the graphics chip or graphics card, The lack of indicator light on the num lock LED and the lack of power to the mouse would indicate that there is a major issue with the motherboard.
you can try using another monitor to confirm the problem lies with the graphics, and in the case of the keyboard and mouse, swap them for a usb version, if they work, the Ps2 ports are probably damaged.
I'd be thinking of replacing the motherboard

Hi,
1.Remove the power cable.
2.Push the start button several times.
3.Plug in the power cable
4.Try to start the computer.

If this doesn't help then you have a failed hardware.
Explain where this tick sound comes from.

LCD monitor is not showing display eventhough power led is on. Also Power led is blinking.


If you have another computer to hook it up to I would try that first to rule out that the monitor is defective...it sound like the monitor is in sleep mode and is not receiving any signal so check the cable too. If another computer makes it work then the problem would be in the computer you have it hooked to now...if this is the case, then the problem may be the video card is bad, or the computer is having boot up issues

Blank sreen.Fan is working. LED indicator is lighted but blinking rapidly.


Try a different monitor. If the second monitor doesn't work disconnect the power and then re-seat the video card. Also, check the RAMs - make sure they're seated as well. Start-up the computer and verify that the hard drive LED is blinking randomly - if it is, more than likely the computer is working properly. Your monitor could be bad as well as the video card. If the VGA port is on the motherboard, then you have an on board graphics card instead of a video card. In that case, the motherboard is bad.

The power LED of my compaq monitor blinks when powered. Sometimes it works well but after 20 minutes display disappears and it blinks the power LED.


Hi,
if the light blinks orange after a few minutes after use. The monitor would either require repair or replacement since the power board has gone bad.


Thanks

My dell 4600c monitor will only show a picture when i start or restart it with the monitor power button. it is only on for about 1.5 seconds each time.


If the tower power LED is a Steady Green and the Diagnostic LEDs on the Back are all Green then the monitor itself appears to be the failure point. See if issue occurs with a different monitor. If the tower LEDs are not all green, then reply with the indications

TURNED ON, HEARD A CRACK SOUND, NOW JUST A BLNKING RED LIGHT? PRIOR TO THIS THE COMPUTER WORKED FINE!---MONITOR WORKS ON ANOTHER COMPUTER....I GET NOTHING ON THE SCREEN & THE DISK UNIT DOESN'T...


If the power LED is blinking red, that's usually the PC telling you there is an error. Is it an HP/Compaq? The number of blinks can tell you what the problem is. If you heard a crack sound when you turned it on, I'm willing to bet the power supply went. You can go to the manufacturer's website and look through their Support Information and see what the red LED tells you.
