    Check All Connections



    Remove CMOS Battery To Reset BIOS



    Try A Different Power Supply



    Remove And Refit Graphics Card



    Try Another Graphics Card



    If Using Graphics Card Try Onboard Video and vice versa



    Does anything power up at all? You might need a new power supply if nothing comes on



    Also check the wall socket , plug something else like a lmap in and see if that works.



    Ive also repaired problems like this where the RAM socket itself was actually burnt. Check for any burns on both the RAM and the RAM scoket aswell and if there is a burn on the socket , dont use that socket.

    Is it onboard video or video card? Try reseating the card if there is one. Also clear the bios either by jumper or remove the battery for a second. Make sure the power is disconnected.

Swap your other ram card into the other slot to assure the ram slot has not died do this by leaving your new card out and swapping your current one into the other slot examine if it boots as normal.

In no way do I aim to insult your intelligence but have you ensured that the new RAM is the right type? e.g. DDR2

Hi my pc boots and fans are spinning like normal


You need to check the monitor also. The LED monitors do not last as long as the old CRT's. Also try a different cable. The LED monitors I have had usually stop working without warning. They will turn on but cannot display a picture.

HP w2207 no vga input signal, no dvi input signal monitor goes to sleep


There is no signal coming from your PC.
excuse some of the solutions as sounding dumb, but we have to explore all possibilities.

Check the power cable going into the computer
Check the power input disconnect switch on the back of the power supply and make sure it is on
If the pc is plugged into a power bar, make sure it is turned on and the breaker isn't tripped
press power on the PC and make sure the lights are coming on.

now for the solutions that may actually help.

disconnect the power from the PC
if the video is on a card, remove and re-seat the video card
hook the power back up, connect the monitor and try again.

the CMOS on the computer may need to be reset.
I hate totally clearing the CMOS, so what I usually do is remove 1 stick of ram and power up. If the system is alive again, power down, put the RAM back in and power back up.
If that doesn't work, turn the system off, put the CMOS jumper to the CLEAR position for 15 seconds, put it back to the Normal position and then power back up.

Basically, if the monitor works on your friends system but not on yours, the the problem is your system, not the monitor (assuming it isn't working fine til it gets into windows...if that's the problem, you have a driver or configuration problem)

After doing above steps now you can connect the power cable, VGA cable, keyboard,mouse etc... and switch on the computer and see if you are able to get display. If still you find the same problem you can try removing RAM from RAM bank and clean it with a brush or a cloth ,both RAM and RAM Bank. Now Put back the RAM and switch on the computer.

I have an Emachines W3609 desktop with windows vista. One day i powered it on and the fan ran hard and i got three beeps and no display in the monitor. I went into the case removed the ram and found 1 ram...


i seem the power supply gone bad, it is hard to say what is the problem actually, you need to check all of your devices(processor, ram, video card, motherboard and power supply) to some other system one by one for confirmation.

I have an IBM thinkpad T20 running windows 2000. The computer is on and booted up but the monitor is not lighting up. It is running on 256mb ram and I was getting a lot of virtual memory is low warnings...


To determine if the laptop has a problem with the inverter of low virtual memory issues, plug an external monitor in to the laptop and you can change the virtual memory by following these instructions, right click on my computer, select properties, then select advanced, click on virtual memory and change the settings to system detemined, save settings and reboot the laptop without the external monitor to see if it is virtual memory or inverter.
Please keep me informed

Emachines 1900+ gets power to the monitor and computer but wont boot


Buy a dianostics card, and find out if its the RAM, CPU, OR Motherboard. (sounds like a ram or CPU problem though) if you have more than one stick of ram in the system, take one out, and power it up, if still not response, to the other stick out, and put the stick you took out the first time, and put it back in.
