    I've removed them and tried one at a time and it didn't work. I'm going to see if my uncles granphic card will work in it cause I plan on buying the same one. If the card works I don't have to worry about my motherboard cause everyting else works just fine.

If you are only getting a flashing line in the left corner of your monitor you may have a damaged cmos chip, because you should be able to atleast get into the bios, unless you have faulty memory, so if you have two sticks fitted remove one and try again, ensuring you use the correct memory slot.

Dell inspiron 530 desktop won't boot, fan is running, no signal on monitor


It sounds like either your monitor or video card inside the computer is bad.

If the monitor is showing the "No Input Signal" message then the video card inside the computer is bad. The monitor is ok otherwise it would not be able to display the No Input Signal message.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the computer is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.



Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory 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 on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Acer aspire l100 will not boot but fans run


Try removing/disconnecting the hard drive and see if the BIOS boots up, if it does the HDD is causing the problem. Are you getting any beeping codes on start up, if so how many and hoe long in between?

Just installed a new Gigabyte 880GM-D2H motherboard, 4 GB RAM (Corsair DDR3 1333), AMD Phenom II multi-core processor (X6 1055T), 750 W power supply, Maxtor 500 GB hard drive and a Blu Ray DVD Drive. ...


motherboard to hard drive leads

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
one bad lead will end with a computer error a computer needs its connections continue its cycle and have an end to function properly

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

hope this helps

Screen not responding


can you hear any boot sounds?
(fan noise, harddisk rattling)
do the LEDs work (battery and charger , Hdd, CD/DVD-ROM-drive,WLAN)?
this would indicate it still boots up, but screen might be broke.

u lucky?
- remove battery pack! retry booting

if not, hook it up to another external monitor
(use vga-jack in the back of it)
reboot, wait for signal

- check if the the fan is jammed
(due to sand???)
this might cause overheat problem -
use compressed air to blow/clean the fan inlet

still no luck? it simply may be broke...

Dell Dimension XPS PC Desktop won't boot


Hi,

Vista is available in 32 and 64 bit os.
if your system ran xp which was most likely 32 bit. And you have installed a 64 bit version os.
this will be your problem, also Vista requires more system RAM/Memory to run it.
If you get 1 beep at startup, it states the system is ok.
Alternatives are device drivers incompatability.
Check M$ website, regarding vistas minimum system requirements.

My Pc wont boot no signal in my monitor Help!


May be your in second HDD, you didn't set the jumper up. There are some more settings you will have to configure in the BIOS menu. in the BIOS, you should set the primary HDD as the master and the second(newer HDD) as the secondary. Then it should boot without any problem but if the problem persists I don't know what to do next.
