Descktop computer turns on, but no video

Hi, I have a desktop computer that went dead recently. I will describe a series of events that lead to that. I had a video card that went bad. I had it replaced. But that did not resolve my problem. I narrowed it down to the power supply. I replaced it and now it looks/sounds like it turns on, the usual start up sounds, but the monitor remains black and it never goes further than that. Somebody told me that I need to reset the bios so that it uses the integrated video rather than the graphics card. I dont know where to begin. Does anybody have any idea what else it could be wrong ? Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Re: Descktop computer turns on, but no video

Hi, I'm assuming your motherboard has a built-in video card. Let's trying doing it by the numbers. 1. Remove all memories, cards, FDD, IDE or SATA cables from the motherboard. What should be left are only the power supply connector, the CPU + Heatsink & fan; 2. With the unit off & unplugged, pry/remove the 3V memory battery. Short the CMOS reset jumper. This is normally located very near the battery. If you can post brand/model of MB, we can probably point the exact location or you can go to the manufacturer's website and download the pdf file of the manual; 3. Leave it with no battery and the CMOS reset (not default) jumper in place. Give it a couple of minutes; 4. Re-insert the battery and remove the jumper from reset position and replace it back to default position (its original position); 5. Connect keyboard, power cord, monitor video cable (onboard video connector is below the printer port and beside the serial COM1 port) and; 6. Power up. Most cases you will have a series or combinations of beeps since there is no memory (and no video since the onboard video uses shared memory). Sometimes no beeps at all. Power off; 7. Install a single stick of memory. It would be a good idea to clean the edges/connector pins of the memory stick with the use of a pencil eraser. Further use a clean/new paintbruh to remove any other dirt. Use the same brush on the slot where the memory is to be placed. Seat the memory into one of the memory slots. Power up, there should now be a healthy pre-post beep (if you do not have an onboard video, a long beep will tell you that no video card present). If no beeps nor display in your monitor, power off, remove the memory and place it in the other memory slot and try again. If still a no go, try with another memory following the same sequence. 8. If still a no go, try with your videocard either in AGP or PCI-E slot as applicable; 9. If it works, you're set to re-install everything else; 10. If not, your motherboard and/or processor has to be replaced. Hope this works out for you. Good luck and pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.

This means that the condenser fan motor (outside unit) failed, this caused to build hi pressure and either activated a safety valve to release the extra pressure or blew a line and R22 Refrigerant escaped from system.

The fix is to replace motor fan and capacitor find the leak and refill system with R22 Refrigerant Gas. It is safe to turn on the Fan Only mode on the Thermostat until a HVAC Tech arrives.
To perform this job parts and labor included will cost: about $300 -.$400. Look on the Yellow Pages for a Tech in your neighborhood.

Four loads are connected in series across 110 volt dc. the load fail to operate.a voltmeter connected in succession across each device read 0 across the first three loads and 110 volt across the fourth...

If you have four loads connected in series and after the first load you have 0 volts, it is not possible to have 110 volts at the fourth load. If you have four switches in series, and have the problem you are describing it means that your fourth switch is open, and therefore will not pass power to the actual load.

Note- voltmeters measure the difference in voltage between the two leads, so with the power on, if your meter reads 0, the switch is closed, with the leads on either side of the switch, and 110 means the switch is open. On the other hand if you touched one probe to ground, and checked voltage on each side of the switch, you would have 110 up to the switch that is open.

Hope this helps

GE APH10AA - beeps once when plugged in but doesnt turn on

It could be just the start capacitor for the compressor that has gone out. Easy way of checking is to take a screwdriver and short across the leads after you have unhooked it from the wiring connectors (don't touch metal while doing this, it CAN shock you) and take an analog meter, put it on ohms for resistance, and touch it across the two connectors. The meter should jump, then switch leads and touch them again. It should jump consistently like this. If it's not that, then it's probably either faulty wiring, switch or if all else fails it could be the compressor went to ground. Take off the leads going to it, again set the meter to full resistance, and put one lead on copper tubing going into the compressor, and touch each pin of the connector on unit. If any of them read anything, then it is the compressor. Hope this helps.
