    No beeps in the beginning. Starts up fine. All fans and lights come on but will not show anything on the screen. It is not the video card because I replaced it with a brand new one. I also put a operating disk in and it still would not come up. So I am not sure what it is.

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.

    I would guess the processor is dead. If it were the motherboard then you probably won't get the lights and fans. But with the processor being out that would give you lights and fans. Since there is no beeps I would definitely check the CPU(processor).

Computer starts but moniter stays in sleep mode .. moniter works on different comp .. will adding a vid card to my comp fix this problem ??

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.

Good Luck

That is a video device problem.First you need to check you monitor cable,it runs from the monitor into the back of the pc into your video device.
Hopefully you have a video card,but check that the cable is secure and tight.You may want to remove it and put it back on just to be sure.

If this doesnt help try restarting the pc and hold the f8 key down and select safe mode.If you get a picture on your monitor you may need to reinstalll the video drivers.If not then you have a bad video card or a bad video chip depending on what is in your pc.

My comp starts up but does nothing more apart fromfans running dont hear any beaps like it used to and nothing boots up can u help could u hazzard a guess many thanks greg

hard drive has fatal error or motherbaord is gone.
Have you recently had any viruses?
If you have the recovery discs this is going to be your only hope.
Turn off comp. turn on and insert dic.
continuously pressF11 to enter bios.
choose to boot form cd/dvd rom
this will start the repair process.
This will reinstall the original operating system, and all drivers that were originally on your system.
CAUTION!!! This will also erase all programs and file you have installed/ downloaded onto your system so be sure to back up anything you dont want to be gone forever.
Good Luck

I have an Acer AL2017 20inch. As of recent the

try these steps - in this order:
  1. Download the latest drivers for your video card but do not install it yet.
  2. Uninstall any video card software installed (ati catalyst/control center - nvidia etc)
  3. go to device manager, expand video adapters, and right click to uninstall them both.
  4. Reboot your pc. Windows will install a generic driver when it boots up. From there, install the new video drivers you downloaded in step 1.
  5. Get the monitor driver here:,39043052,50002410r-39518824s,00.htm and install it
  6. That should fix it. Let me know what happens.

Pc keeps beeping 3 times and nothing on the moniter

remove the RAM(MEMORY CHIPS) from *********** board and reinsert.if the problem is same replace the chips,get new chips.mostly cleaning the golden lines on the chip with pencil/school rubber solves the problem.
No beep is usually a power problem that can be related to the power supply, motherboard or both. Always check your battery power before thinking there is a bigger problem.
One beep is a normal POST. That means everything is fine. Two, Three, or Four short beeps are normally about the memory of the machine. If there is a problem with one of your memory chips you should get beeps of different combinations in this area. If you get two or three short beeps, one or both of your memory chips could be in trouble.
Five beeps point toward motherboard or CPU problems. Make sure your memory and video card are seated properly. Try removing them and putting them back in, only if you are comfortable with computers. Six, seven and eight beeps. Eight beeps indicate problems with your video card. Six or Seven are CPU, or a bad chip on the motherboard. Nine beeps mean the BIOS is bad. Replace the motherboard. Ten beeps means the problem is in the CMOS. All chips need to be replaced.

Most of these kinds of problems are created by using the different version than the current version of your video card driver.

Check your video card company's website and download the specific video card driver for your devide's ID and It should resolve the proble,

My computer won't boot up or something; no power led lit.

Seems to me your Ram module connector is dirty. Clean its edge connector with a soft eraser. Or if it can, transfer it to the next ram bank. Or your memory module is already dead.
