Turn off all the power from your pc en did a cold restart? if that doesn't work, your videocard is broken or if its an slot card, you can try disconnecting the power plug from the motherboard wait about a minute then replug en start up your pc , now it should reconize your pluged in card again.

No signal to monitor


Check all conections between the tower and the screen, make sure all are secure, if no joy, unplug the tower and remove the side panel to see if the graphics card is in securely, maybe take the graphics card out and put it back in again to be sure. If you have another monitor or monitor cable try replacing to see if the situation improves.

I have an X2Gen MW22U monitor. While using, I heard a heavy static sound, then the monitor went black. I can't get it to work now. I disconnected the wires and then reconnected. Restarted the computer....


You should powercycle the Monitor.
Unplug the printer from the power and press and hold the power button on the monitor for 30 seconds. (It wont show anything)
Try the same again than.

Worked fine last night, discovered it this morning still turned on but no signal to monitor. Rebooted and it began a consistent beeping with no signal to monitor. Unplugged several times to no avail....


the beeping is coming from the cpu.

1 unplug pc
2 pull out ram chips
3 use an eraser to clean the gold, yes thats gold

what happens is the gold on the ram oxidizes and does not connect properly and can go bad but cleaning it with an eraser sometimes works. take a cpu that is working unplu it pull the ram and you will see the same thing your other pc is doing.

4 reinstall ram (correctly)
5 boot up cpu
6 please vote.

Wont start up


Check physical connections first, check monitor cable if securely plugged in and then check power light of monitor. If power light on monitor is amber or yellow it means that monitor is not getting a signal from cpu/ tower. Try to do a power drain on the computer, remove power cable at the back of the computer and then press and hold the power button for 10 secs, after that plug in power cable again and restart the computer.Check if there is any connection if not then try to use another monitor, a known good one. If you get a video from another monitor it means monitor is already defective.

No signal to monitor , checked with another source to monitor it is working fine , not sure what to do next


Hello,

Have you checked if the cable is well connected to the CPU and Monitor?

Also loose the CPU case and check the VGA card if it well fixed to the board.

If a CPU ram is not well fixed to the mother board, there would never be a display on the monitor.

Lastly, check if electric current is interring the CPU. You can know through the power pack fan at the back of the CPU. And check power cables and socket.

Best wishes.

Cpu doesnt work


Dear Zalrashdi20,
When you say that the CPU doesn't work, what happens exactly? Does it not power on OR There are beep sounds heard OR there is an error on screen that you would like to share? OR ...

Assuming that the machine is not powering on at all .. here are few checks that you would like to perform...
  1. There is a toggle switch (Voltage selector) at the back of the computer on the power supply unit, just besides where you connect the power cable .. make sure that appropriate voltage is selected.
  2. Try connecting the computer to a different wall socket.
  3. If computer is connected through the Surge protector or UPS then try connecting it directly to the wall socket.
  4. Try using a spare power cable if available.
  5. Remove all other connections apart from Power supply, keyboard, mouse and monitor and see if that makes any difference.
  6. Remove the power supply cord from the back of the computer and press and hold the power button for few seconds .. this would drain the accumulated power from the CPU components .. now reconnect the power supply and see if that makes any difference..
  7. Open the chassis and see that couple of wires run from behind the power button on the CPU to the big circuit board (Motherboard) .. make sure that the wires are properly secured.
Perform these basic checks and let me know and I would glad to assist you further.

Regards,
Srinivas

Won't turn on


Seems that your CPU-Cabinet is not giving the video output for your monitor. Please check the powercord and other internal assembly (if possible) that runs in and around the cabinet and restart the machine.

is this an lcd flat panel monitor or a crt? if it is a flat panel then you may be dealing with blown capacitors on the vga board inside. they can be replaced therby repairing the monitor. if it is a crt then just recycle it and buy a newer lcd monitor to replace this old one.

Stuck on logo screen


I hate to tell you, but that is bad news. But before we jump to any conclusions, first open up the computer and look for the BIOS reset jumper on the motherboard, if you find it switch it to clear CMOS for around 20-30 seconds and then put it back on normal and see if it boots. If it doesn't, there isn't much more we can do, as your motherboard most likely decided to keel over and die.
