I just built my first system and for about 2 months, it ran just fine.
Then, once day after shutdown, I started it back up and after showing
the Ai Lifestyle logo and the Windows loading logo, my TV showed "No
I have tried scanning for viruses, as well as a general systems
diagnostic with the Advanced SystemCare program. I reinstalled drivers
from both Nvidia's website and the software that came with the
graphic's card. I have tried to reinstall and repair Windows both. I
have also pulled a regular PCI video card (Nvidia 6-series) and
replaced the current video card, but after that I didn't even get the
logos so I put the original one back in.
I'm really not sure what else to try, so any help would be greatly greatly appreciated.

Re: No video signal on boot
First, if possible, try to connect another monitor then check. othewise it is likely your Video has gone (Which is possibly on the motherboard) alternatively you can try installing a new external video card in the PCI slot and run the machine if it works fine. If everything has failed then possible their is a chance of your video card failure.--------its better first you try it with external Display card install it in the PCI slot and test your display again, ------maybe you have your onboard video card disabled or your AGP or PCI video card is disabled in the bios.. try pressing del.. den F5, den enter, den F10 den enter. -------If you have integrated video and you do NOT have BIOS hardware fail beeps, then you have either turned something off OR your PSU has failed. -----------------.or possibly the power supply isn't correctly connected. If you constantly need to reseat the card, then the shifting of the card is wiggling something on the board which causes a "good" connection to take place.. So, you might start by completely reseating the motherboard so all setoffs are right.. Make sure all power connections and cables are reseated.. Things like that.. If the computer still doesn't work, try replacing the powers supply.. And if still no joy, I'd replace the motherboard.

Re: No video signal on boot
Hi there Sounds like the display drivers have become corrupt, boot into safe mode by hitting F8 on start up, once in the system go to "device manger" and un-install the display drivers. reboot the computer and the display drivers should reinstall themselves

How many years do you own that desktop computer? You have a problem with your Ram: Transcend: 2GB 1333 Mhz
Ram is always responsible to boot and run all system required by your computer A defect ram cannot boot or not properly run application e.g. Power-On-Self-Test (start up of your computer) Booting your Operating System Running your Application like Microsoft office , Photoshop and so on
First to be able to see the error messages of the BSOD you need to disable the automatic restart to do this make sure that the computer is shut down, turn it on and hit F8 once you see Dell logo, then choose the disable automatic restart (you wont see this option if the computer is restarting). For this you wil be able to see the error.
For your issue right now since its not posting anymore the better solution is to isolate external or added peripherals,you can try to remove the video card ], sound card or any card expansion to your computer make sure its only memory are attached, if you wont hear any beeping codes, then the memory card is ok, if you have 2 video card, try to use one video card, if the problem exist try the card to another pcie slot, if the beeping occurs then its stated that the video card is the problem and try the other one. If you only have one video card the atleast you can try it to different pcie. However if only memory card is attachd and you still hear beeping codes then try one memory at a time to each slot sometimes it might be the memory is causing an issue. For the beeping codes that you provided mostly its a memory based error and memory and video card are the ones with the memory chip.
I hope it can give you an idea how to resolve the issue.
3 beeps means that it's a RAM fault. If your memory worked just fine in another pc then it's the fault of the memory controller of the chipset on the motherboard - either the memory slot is loose (move the stick in the slot and try again) or the chipset itself is failing. That can't be fixed, the mobo is dead, replace it.
if the monitor works fine on your laptop, the problem definitely is at the computer, possibly with the video card (if it is using one). it could have loose connection, or parts might have damages. it seems the problem is intermittent so electronic component of the video card could have parts partially damages or leaky components. if your still using the motherboards built in video out put, try installing a new video card.
have you tried to uninstall the vedio driver and reinstall it then let me know.go to my computer icon right click it > go to properties >hardware tab > device manager and check if there is any yellow mark showing.kindly do this in starting your computer in safe mode.
