Computer Wont Boot after Removing Display Chip

Hi all! Hope you can help me.

I am quite tech oriented, and usually figure the problems out myself. But this one is messing me up.

I have a desktop computer that was working, but I had to take the hard drive out to look @ its serial number. I put everything back the exact way it was, and now the screen wont boot up or nothing will display. Everything is on, all the cables firmly attached.

I even tried 3 different display adapter chips and it doesnt work still. I also tried it on a different motherboard, and still no change.

It happened before, but I did something to get it working, but I forget what I did.

Can anybody help me?

Greatly Appreciated!

    Thank you both very much for a quick response and a detailed one at that.

    For Lolita, I have tried removing and re-inserting the memory module, but that has not fixed it.

    For Sublimation, I will try removing the battery for 24hrs and see if that makes a difference. If not, I will reply back for CMOS help (most likely).

    Thank you both!

    That thing that you tried, was it a CMOS reset? To reset the CMOS you can either set a certain jumper on your motherboard to reset the CMOS or you can pull out the BIOS battery from your motherboard leaving it out about 24 hours to ensure the power runs out.

Look on the chip for a small square or circle mark at one end only. This MUST match up with the mark on the board. This indicates the polarity of the chip. Hopefully, if it was in wrong, it didn;t blow the chip.

Hello,
Sometimes when this happens to me there are several things that I try. Remove the memory module and reseat it firmly and then try to boot again. Most of the time, this is the problem. If not, then try resetting the bios.

Thanks,
Lolita

Soyo Tech aid response 2A: "different BUSes" on 1999 AMI Bios on ECS P4800 Pro-M VI.0A pc motherboard.Won't boot but stops. How to fix?


Visit http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=574&LanID=9
and compare that is your BIOS updated ? If not, I suggest first update your BIOS to the latest version and see if error is removed ? Try Load Optimal Settings of BIOS. If fail, then try resetting the BIOS. If you have install anything new, try to boot by removing the new device. I suggest from the above URL, you can download the manual of the mother board. I hope trying these steps will remove your problem.

No Display on boot up


When a motherboard does not beep that isnt good news and its either the Motherboard or CPU. Have you fot the FSB settings correct on the board? Is your power Supply Good? Does your graphics card need power and is it plugged in? Unfortunately the only way to findout exactly is at fault is through a process of elimination. Can you try a different power supply first? Also try removing the CPU and re-seating it. If not, then you need to try and get hold of another motherboard and see if everything works in that. If not then it could be the CPU. Diagnosing CPU or MOTHERBOARD is always tricky without spares. Good luck

Motherboard beeps 2 long beeps upon start up ?


More then likely it's your memory or video card.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Bios password wont let windows boot up


When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there also The most common way that we know on how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing a battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased. Hope this helps

You are not looking for a chip on the motherboard, you can reset your motherboards CMOS password by removing the circular silver battery (which should come out very easily) and then replacing it. Many motherboards also have a series of pins with covers on them that can be orientated to reset the CMOS, try checking your computers manual for those. Its not recommended that you remove any chips from your motherboard. Hope this helps.

No Screen display on tecra m3 laptop


if you go into safe mode (F8) on boot-up, does the graphics show up?? If so, it's the graphics board/chip on the MB. I have one and have the same problem - no amount of loading drivers, re-install BIOS, etc. would help. sometimes it works, but most times when you start up, shows the Toshiba logo, and once windows starts, goes to a black screen.

Won't boot; now no video


Hi rwbta, from your description it sounds like a bios issue.
The bios only displays: (Press the Delete key for setup) when there is a problem with a device.
(Hard disk drive, video device, over clocking settings, ECT). After resetting the bios (As you have done), display should resume. Since it did not suggest you plug the monitor into the second VGA or DVI port on the graphics card & check for display. Try another monitor, (Just to be sure). If you are running in SLI, disconnect the primary PCI express card (Blue slot) & replace it with the second PCI express card. Boot the system & check for display. No display? Move to the second port on the card & check for display. Still no display? Than it is possible your bios may be corrupt.
You can buy a new updated bios directly from Asus estore online, click this link;
http://estore.asus.com/shop/ There are currently 217 pages to search through in order to find the bios chip for the M2N-E SLI board. (Your board is still under warranty).
You can save time by calling Asus tech at; 1-812-282-2787 & talk with a tech. If you choose to do so please write down the S/N found on the parallel port. The tech will want this & check to see if the board is still in warranty. After a short talk with the tech he or she may include another suggestion or you can just ask for an updated bios chip. In either case be sure to get a case number. The average cost for a bios chip is $5.00 not including shipping. Since this board is still in warranty this item should be free for you. Asus store hours: Monday - Friday 8:00 AM. To 6:00 PM PST, excluding weekends and / or holidays.

Good luck rwbta!

Power won't turn off and computer will not boot. I've removed the battery and cleared the CMOS with the jumper. lt happened after a couple of power failures at home however pwer supply has a surge...


Hi,

The Green LED on the power board is a warning light to techs to let us know the board is energized and to wait for it to go fully off before changing RAM or anything else on the motherboard. So, ignore that light.

What surprises me is that there are no error beep codes.

Try this out, pull the plug and wait for the light on the motherboard to go off. check that all connectors to the motherboard are tight and all plugs from the power supply are tight, remove and re-seat the graphics display adapter.

At the bottom right of your motherboard is a set of wire connections that are of mixed colors, green and white, red and while, etc. See if the green and white connector and all of them are seated correctly. It could be that the wires from the power on button are not seated properly or have come loose. The power on connector is usually three pins wide but has wires at either side of the connector. Also, some PC have a Case Open Switch, it is usually noticeable by examining the case opening. If you see one, put the case cover back on and try again.

Frankly, it appears your machine is stuck in sleep mode where even removing the power plug does not fix the problem.

The confusion on this problem is that there are no beep codes, and the board is energized which won't happen if the Power Good signal from the Power Supply is absent and thus preventing a bootup. Since, it is energizing the problem may be any of the above I suggested you look at and possibly your motherboard's CMOS chip. This chip instructs the board on how to boot up to the point where the BIOS chip can take over.

Hopefully, you are under warranty and can get service from the maker if nothing can be resolved by our help here at fix ya. Or, if you don't consider yourself a computer tech I'd further suggest you have one get their hands on your machine where diagnostic can be more thorough than we can give you via text messages.

Still, try the above suggestions and let us know.

Thanks,
Worldvet

Motherboard problem


if you have tried resetting the bios by putting the jumper across pins 2-3, then back to pins 1-2 and it still wont boot into the bios and you know the memory is ok, then the bios chip on the motherboard is damaged and may not be easy to replace as the board is quite old.
