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.

I have a samsung syncmaster 204T monitor. Everything was fine until last night when i kept my system on standby for approx 5-6 hrs. Now whenever i start my system there is only a green led on front panel...


I just started having the same problem! The green light flashes, but the monitor is blank. None of the button work (menu, source, etc...) and nothing changes when I disconnect it from the computer. I was suspecting a bad graphics card at first, but now I'm thinking the monitor itself is bad?!

My monitor doesn't display anything, though it's receiving input from the CPU. I know that input is being received because the monitor status light is green, and times out (turns orange).


Same thing happened to me! Went to bed last night, everything was fine. Woke up today, orange light came on, no display, slight flickering seen, but that's it. Cables and cords are fine, tried unplugging and plugging it back in, NOTHING. Totally dead. I'm guess off to buy a new one today. Typical made-in-China JUNK.

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
