Self Test Check Your PC & Signal Cable Monitor Is Working''

I get this message when I boot up my PC Its a emachine w2646 and has a new power supply in this. I am told it needs a new graphics card? This machine is maybe 7 years old but has no more than 25 hours on it as it belonged to my mother who rarely used it. I have a few pictures stored on this but thats all. A friend of mine installed the new power supply along with a USB port for me about 3 months ago. I started using this around the first of November with the idea of storing pictures on it. I have maybe 50 slides on it but thats all. Seems like this PC always has something wrong with it. If it is a graphics card I need could you steer me in the right direction as to what I need? I am planning on using this PC for picture storage only.
Thank you

    No this is what is does until I turn it off. You can hear the windows sound, but no pictures load. It will show this for a few minutes then tell you its going into power saving mode and then you get a blank screen

    Thank you for your input. Where I have no idea what I am doing I think I will take the later advice and go to a repair shop .

Ok the only 2 ways to verify is first hook up your monitor up to another pc and verify that the monitor works and the 2nd method is to get a video card and try it and order for the other card to work the onboard video card must be disabled in the bios by hittinf f1,del,f10 or if you are uncomfortable with this take your pc to a repair shop and let them check it out
Pls take time to rate this solution

Monitor turns off after a while. before it does it signal cable problem. i did install a new monitor and it still the same. do i need to change out video card if so where do i get one. thank


is it just the monotor that turns off or does the computer turn off to

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

I turn on my pc all fine screen says no signal help please


Verify that the VGA cable is fully seated and connected. If you can test the computer on another monitor or test another computer on that monitor. Are you getting any video display on the monitor? Does it display the start-up screen then goes away when windows starts? If so start the computer and press F5. A menu will come up and select to start computer in VGA mode. This should bring up windows so you can change the screen resoloution to something the monitor can handle. If the computer does not display anything and the monitor is testing good then the on-board video or video card might be faulty. You could change the video card if it has one or add one to the system if it has on-board video. You could also try re-setting the BIOS jumper to clear the cmos or pull out the watch battery for 20 seconds. Another thing to try is to disconnect all hardware...cd-rom, hard drive, floppy drive, and memory dimms and see if it boots up with display. If that works the you will need to re-install each piece of hardware one at a time and re-boot until the problem happens again. Once it does that is your problem device. You could also try swapping out the power supply and see if that is the cause of the problem.

Ati radeon grafix card 9550/x1050 monitor signal out of range


Hi,

Try to check the screen resolution and the screen refresh rate. Try to set it first to 60hz for the screen refresh rate and try to set the screen resolution to 1024 x 768.

Monitor stays black. Says no video.


I'd try running windows in safe mode by holding down f8 at startup. If that ends up working it's probably a setting that is wrong. If all still remains black i'd look at testing another video card and monitor. Either one could be it.

Check the power supply on the PC. Make sure it working. When you first plug in the power to the power supply unit, the fan should "Jump" alittle.

Defect ASUS V8420 ?


I don't understand, please explain more:

0) What kind of a monitor is it ?

1) If the monitor is NOT plugged into a working video card,
it should blank out or display some sort of a
"NO SYNC" or "NO SIGNAL" or "UNPLUGGED" warning.

The power light may also flash or show a different color.

2) If the monitor is plugged into a working video card,
it should wake up from the inactive power-saving mode
and display the desktop.

3) If the video card is malfunctioning, or if the windows
video settings are set outside of the monitor's sync limits,
the monitor may turn off or display a warning message,
such as:

No sync, Out of range ... etc.

4) The repair situation (3), reboot windows into
safe mode:

a) Press Hardware Reset

b) After the power-on self-test (POST) and memory check
press and hold the F8 Key

c) Select Safe mode

d) Login to windows at low resolution

e) Right-click on the desktop, chose:

Properties -> Settings -> Set the correct resolution, apply
Click advanced -> monitor -> set the correct refresh rate.

Reboot normally

Hope this helps

Martin

PS, some monitors have dual inputs: VGA or DVI
make sure the correct input is selected, depending
on your cable (VGA is a 15 pin "D" connector,
DVI is a larger connector with many more FLAT pins)


Also some video cards have multiple outputs, which are
activated only if a correct monitor is attached BEFORE
reset.

No signal to monitor


  1. Verify card is seated properly.
  2. Check bios settings. ie. disable onboard video, enable PNP OS installed, enable "assign IRQ to vga", disable shadowing and caching, enable passive release, enable delayed transaction, vga boot sequence: AGP, set graphics aperture size to 128MB, disable turbo modes.
  3. Verify power supply is at least 350 watts.
  4. Reboot into safe mode (press F8 right after the BIOS POST screen and before the windows loading screen) and use the program, Driver Cleaner Pro to remove Nvidia video driver remnants. Don't select all of the options, just the Nvidia driver and the plain ATI selection.
  5. Verify the monitor cable is securely connected to both the monitor and the computer.
  6. Verify that you have connected the cable to the vga port on the card and not the onboard vga port. (I'm not implying that you are dumb or anything like that, but sometimes even the best of us, overlooks the simple things... especially me! LOL)
  7. Verify the monitor cable is good.
  8. (Last but not least), try using another monitor to test. (Could be an incompatibility with the monitor.)

No signal on first boot


This would usually indicate that there is a problem that is causing your computer to not boot correctly all of the time. What you have described could be many different problems and without more information I cannot say which one it is.

1. Hard drive. I have ran into Hard Drives that for some reason do not start up correctly right away when you put power to them. This can cause the initial startup to hang possibly indefinitely.
2. Video Card. Something probably firmware is causing your video card to not start up properly when power is first applied.
3. PSU. The power supply could cause similar problems if it cannot supply enough power because the highest power draw is when you first turn on the computer. When you push the reset button the power is already being supplied to most of the components and the ones that did not have enough power to start properly before can do so now.
4. CPU. If the CPU has some minor problems it can cause similar problems. In any case to fix it you can try clocking down the CPU but you are better off replacing it.
5. RAM. I have had similar problems with RAM. Clocking down the RAM fixed the issue.
6. Settings in BIOS. I would check to make sure the setting for init display on boot is set for PCI-e.

No any video signal from the video card


When you power on your computer do you hear any system beeps from the PC speaker? When the computer is turned on it will run through a system check and one of the things it checks for is the presence of a working video card. One beep typically means everything checked out ok and your graphics card is working and it will continue to boot. If you are getting past that initial test I would next look at the monitor and see if it can handle the signal that is being sent to it. Are you not getting any of the boot up text display?
