Okay if your keyboard doesnt come on, then you shouldnt be able to get past the BIOS screen. Second does the motherboard come with on board VGA??? If so the try sticking a external VGA card in and see if that wont get your screen to work. I know it will cost you, but theres not much you can troubleshoot with a monitor if it wont come on.
Oh you can also try booting into safe mode, if you are able to get that far.
If you can get into safemode, my bet would be that you have a driver problem.

And how are you able to see that everything else is working if the monitor wont come up???

Anyway give it a bash and see any of this helps.
Good luck.

Is there supposed to be a caps lock indicator on HPw2207 keyboard,? If there is, I must be missing something I can never tell if I am in upper or lower case letters ( not too good when entering a password)

That model goes to a LCD monitor, not keyboard. Windows can make a tone when you hit the cap locks, so you can use that as indicator or you can use the on-screen keyboard which should visually show the cap locks being pressed.

How to tell when you hit the cap locks key

Need to replace f key.

Hi friend, As you have mentioned that the "F" key form the keyboard is not working. So, I would firstly like to tell you to please try and connect any other USB keyboard to check if the "F" key is also not working from the other keyboard. If it does not work through the external keyboard, then you need to replace the motherboard and if it works with the external keyboard then you have to replace the keyboard of the system.

No display

Do you have an separate VGA card to try and then hook your monitor up to this card.
Actually does the rest of the PC work. Powers up fine and and keyboard and mouse seem to work?

My computer is not working shows keyboard erro and stop


When you monitor saying which is no signal this is a monitor port problem. Check your monitor connector if it is properly connceted to the motherboard. That is the only way of monitor saying no signal.

Have emachines W2060. Can't get screen to show

Hi Joe,

Could be one of several things:

1) Monitor cable connection loose.
2) Video card (if you have one) not seated, or bad.
3) RAM module not seated, bad, or wrong kind. (If you have not messed with the RAM, probably not one of these.)
4) If your video is integrated into the motherboard (no video card) your motherboard may be bad. Installing a separate card could correct this.
5) Bad monitor.

Have you made any changes to your system when this happened?

Try to connect another monitor/cable to your computer and try your monitor on a friend's computer to see if it works.

Comment back with any updates.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Pc Seems to be dead wont load bios post moust doesnt work or keyboard or monitor

I have the same problem, the CPU fan spins, keyboard lights blink, no start up screen, or bios.
But, when I push a few times on the pc reset button, then the CPU fan is becoming still, the keyboard light are out and I can start the computer again in a normal way.
Can this one be a temporally solution for you too? Do you have any suggestion about?
I guess it can be an electricity dysfunction of a wrong fixed cable.
