Question about HP Pavilion a305w (DM181AR) PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have a hp a305w. Last night it worked fine, today nothing.

The cpu comes on but the monitor will not. I tried hooking it up to a second monitor, still nothing. So I went and bought a video card because I figured the integrated chip craped out. Problem is, I can't access the bios because the monitor won't come on. Is there a way to disable the integrated chip and enable the card?

Most propably it is the RAM that is making troubles. Before doing anything - first change the RAM.

My computer will power on but there are no lights on the keyboard nothing on the monitor and no beeps or noises. What's going on?


Either:
* the power-supply is not supplying all the voltages that it should;
* the motherboard has failed;
* the CPU on the motherboard has failed.

Try a different power-supply, or take the computer to a qualified technician for thorough trouble-shooting.

Have an hp a305w pavillion powers up but nothing on the screen, tried f10 an nothing happened. Its as if the monitor isn't receiving a signal.


Disconnect all cables, remove all cards and memory. Reinstall one stick of ram, power cord, video cable and keyboard. If that works reinstall other components one at a time. I found a hp a1600n at the dump. Brought it home, had same problem, tried this. A memory stick was loose. Resetting it fixed it. I am typing on it now. You might try the memory first. A chip could have gone bad.Are you using the board video or a video card?

As soon as i turn on my computer my monitor says no input signal and then goes to sleep i have an hp


either your video card has stopped working or your cable to your monitor or the monitor is bad. Try to hook another monitor up to it see if it turns off if it doesn't then the video card needs to be replaced. If it does its the monitor.

HP desktop monitor problems


Motherboard is detecting an error. 1st and most likely to test is power supply to see if it is weak. I did work on one last month of about this model and the bracket for one of the bridge chips broke. You might look inside to see if it's still securely attached. It will be the heat sink below the processor. Keep me posted - Scotty

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.
