My comp starts up and runs fine but it does not show anything on the moniter. it is not the video card i already checked that. i checked the cpu chip and it does not look bad or burnt. but im not sure if the cpu chip or the mother board is bad and i do not know how to check it. can anyone tell me how or give me any ideas on what else it might be?

Re: My comp does not show anything on the moniter??
If you have another monitor try it, if it works then you have a bad monitor. If a different monitor doesn't work in it then it could be the motherboard or CPU. If they are bad there is not test for that, the only real way to test them is to buy one piece at a time and see which one works. Also if your monitor has a power adapter check it. Sometimes those do die and not the monitor.

Actually, Yes. It seems like you have answered your own question... Especially considering the monitor works on another computer.
Do you have another monitor to test on this computer?
Although another consideration could be if you recently installed or downloaded a program which may have changed your video output range to a setting your video monitor wont handle. If this is the case and you can start the computer in safe mode, this will allow you to go into your properties settings and change it back. This way, a new vid card is not req.
1. Check the video cable (the one going from the monitor to the video card)
2. Check if the video card is properly connected to the motherboard (must be tightly plugged into the port)3.This could also mean that the drivers for the video card are not correctly installed
try to check with the monitor selftest if the monitor self test passes, the issue is with the video card.
to check your video card: try to connect the monitor to integrated port and check out so that we could find if the problem is with the video card.
Not a clearcut answer unless you are experienced at bench testing. I will say that nine times out of ten it is the motherboard and not the cpu. If you had another system that would accepts your cpu, you could install that and check but you absolutely should not try this if you are not experienced and know how to do this properly. You also should check the motherboard for burnt areas as well.
There is a slight chance it is the power supply. A bad power supply can sometimes give enough power for the fan and lights but still be bad.
I have been fixing one for a customer. At first I thought that it was the typical burned out powersupply. Delta Electronics has created a replacement. The old REV 00 is 185 watts peak. The new REV01 is 185 nominal. Was the shaggy067 did not take the time to look up is that the 610 is an "All in one" modular monitor/case. This customers is the first one that I have replace the power supply and it still does not work. I believe the flourescent backer of the LCD is shot. I will not know for sure until I find another one. The S-video works fine, so I am testing it using my projector. Everything works except the lcd panel.
check out http://www.32oz.com/mirror/Gateway_610/ for how to disassemble and replace the power supple. By the power supply from http://www.skyline-eng.com/ and not from the crooks on ebay. They are the only authorized rebuilders of the power supplies.
