Check for dust between the PCIe pins, as this might be causing the computer to stop the boot process in order to "protect" your computer from damage.

Biostar P4800 Pro-M7 appears to bootup, but I see no Video Presentation

That motherboard should have onboard graphics, did you try booting from that and maybe going into bios and changing the priority of the video cards if it has that option ? And then reinserting the discrete card. Also I imagine your monitor is known to be good.

No noise, no beeps whatsoever?
If no beeps, MBoard may be defective, or RAM might be bad, maybe one of the drives.
You need to d differential diagnosis.
Try removing everything but the CPU and see if it will POST.
If so, add 1 stick RAM, then 2nd stick, then Drive, then ,,,,,, until you find culprit.
If nothing works, would try another "known good" power supply
If that is no go, Mboard bad.

I have a Powergistic NB4960 laptop, the monitor will not stay on. After sitting 2 weeks, I powered up, screen come on and I watch it bootup, then it goes blank, nothing I can do will make it come back on....

HI there,

Your information is most helpful. Unfortunately the fact that the system will not display on an external monitor is almost surely the sign that your video card has failed. If the card is soldered to the motherboard, the motherboard will have to be replaced. If the card is removable from a socket, another may be purchased and installed. I wish I could have given you better news.

Best Regards,

My pc blank when bootup

If the laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes then you have a backlight problem.
You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight. It could be a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out; usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Model No: PP41L has a blank screen when turned on.

Does the laptop bootup and the hard disk spin up?
To determine if the video card is faulty or the LCD screen is faulty, connect an external monitor to the external video port on the laptop. Power up the external monitor first and then the laptop, the video information should automatically switch to the monitor
If you get a normal Windows image on the monitor then the video card is OK and the fault is the :CD screen provided the laptops boots up properly.

Computer start but wont Boot up.

Here are a couple steps you can do to verify something didn't come on correctly.
- Verify the monitor cable is connected tightly to the monitor and PC.
- Verify the power cable is plugged in.

If both of these check out is there a little LED light on your monitor that is on?
If not swap it out with another monitor and see if a different one works. If so we have a bad monitor.
If both do not work you may have a video card issue. Most EMachines come with a onboard video card which is bad news. If you have a onboard video card you will have to verify the warrantly though Emachine and get it fixed. Good luck and I hope things go well.

Screens works for 5 mins then goes blank!!!!!

It could also be that the video card is not compatible with this monitor. After the pc boots up, can you get into windows? Does the monitor always go out at a specific time on boot? Say for example; you boot the pc, windows startup splash screen comes on; screen does a quick flash and goes blank. Then it maybe the BIOS setting for the video. Try changing the IRQ setting. You could also try putting the video card in another slot. Do you have the manual for the motherboard? Ray

Do you see anything at all after boot up or does it stay dead Check all the connectors. Check the driver situation. Check graphics card seating if this is a card aopposed of integrated graphics for this machine. Run the recovery disk Go to Dell Tech support.
