    count how many beeps there are and if they are long or short, then post back

    sounds like you might need to open up the case and clear the cmos. unplug first from wall. then open up side panel and remove the watch battery noticing the position and wait 5 minutes and then put it back in. there are jumper pins you can move around as well if you are familiar with your board to do the same thing. i just think it is easier for me to tell you to do it this way. now after you installed the battery again. plug in cord now hit the power button and keep hitting delete button or f8 whichever gets you into bios. choose an option that says setup defaults and then save and exit. see if this helps.

  • Did this problem just start ? Have you changed any parts in the computer ? When you turn it on does the computer just go to black screen ?

  • Chuck May 11, 2010

    do you see anything at all especially right after you hit the power button?

Hi again.
The beep codes you describe are memory issues or failure, take the system memory out, clean the contacts and the slots with a clean, soft, dry paintbrush. Re-seat the memory firmly and try boot the PC again.
please post back with the results

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

I have little squares of different colors on my monitor it also seems like my cpu isn't fully booting up. I changed wires and nothing changes I can't see anything so I can't download any virus protection...


try to boot in safe mode by pressing F8 when you turn on the computer use the up/down arrow key to highlight safemode and press enter press enter to select your OS then wait until it loads. during boot up if it still shows the little squares try a known good monitor if it has the little square the video card is busted and needs to be replaced however if ever the known good monitor doesnt have the little square then its the monitor that needs to be replaced.
hope this help

I just got a used syncmaster 203b monitor. I hooked it up and all I get is a black screen. I downloaded Driver whiz and hooked it up again. Still a black screen. Still get a black screen the blue light is...


Make sure that your computer unit is working. Sometimes we suspect that it is a monitor problem but usually, it is a frozen CPU set.

When you turn on the monitor, it should light the blue led and after a while, when it does not receive signal from the CPU, it will turn orange. If that is the case, the monitor is functioning well.

So what could be the problem?

Make sure that you hooked the monitor to the right VGA port. If you have an internal VGA port (built in with the motherboard) and you also have an external Video Card, you should hook it to the external VGA port and not the internal one since it is overridden by default.

Do you hear the "short beep" sound when you boot your PC? That signals a good video system. If you don't hear that beep sound (provided your PC's speakers are okay), you should open your CPU case and try to remove your memory modules (RAM). Clean the pins with an eraser and put it on.

Now, your computer should work fine and so with your monitor.

I would suggest to first determine that your monitor is OK. If you are using a notebook try connecting an external monitor as well and see if the same random (monitor switching off problem) happens with this monitor. If you have a desktop try connecting a different monitor.

If the same condition happens with a different monitor try updating the drivers for your video card.

Sounds like your PC is diplaying out of your monitors range. Try pressing f8 while booting up to get safe mode. then turn down the video resolution to display what your monitor can handle. Good Luck.

My monitor is not responding to anything. what can i do aside from rebooting?


do you see the light blinking in the monitor? I mean the POWER led light up? If so, then the monitor is ok and is working good. It is your CPU which has a problem and not sending digital signal for the monitor to display.
Try to turn off your computer. After 3 minutes turn it back on. then notice if you will hear a short beep from the CPU. That signals a successful video initialization. If you went through that process, then your computer will get back to life.
However, if you dont hear a short beep from the CPU, then definitely your CPU is frozen therefore there is nothing to display to the monitor.
You need to open the CPU case, pull out memory modules then plug them back in. Then try booting.
If not successful, try to open case and pull out the processor. Put it back in after 30 seconds. Try booting again.
Do ALL THESE while your PC is UNPLUGGED.
Good luck.

When I turn on my computer it begins the boot then goes black


Try booting into safe mode. That will disable all drivers and use generic windows drivers to send commands to the devices. If that still doesnt work, id say that there is a problem with your OS installation. Backup your files using an external harddrive enclosure and reinstall the OS.

Cpu problem.


Let's start troubleshooting. First your monitor has the power thats for sure. Tka your monitor and hook it up to another computer, just to see if the monitor is gonna work. If it doesn't it could be your monitor. If it does then it could be your video card. Don't forget to try a new cable as well, it might be it, too.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.
