Gateway zx6971 all in one monitor not working

1st : do you have any kind of warranty !? check from your dealer, and also from the manufacturer : because you know 'sometimes' they offer more than the retailer. Or maybe you have some other form of insurance... ? Don't even try to open it up until you're sure you have no warranty !!!

2nd : some element of hardware died ! That's obvious, because you mention you hear hard drive spinning, as usual when computer is booting, until the point there is no more noise, which means the desktop is loaded and ready... that's possibly the onboard graphics chip (which involves the mainboard 'probably' has to be changed), but it could be an inexpansive part of the monitor itself...

3rd : BTW check if your PC has an external PLUG (vga, hdmi, usb) to connect another monitor, projector, multimedia device...

4th : you have to find 'someone' that knows how to deal with, and fix, an all-in-one computer... :-(

good luck

Ati 9600se problems

I suspect that you are using too small a power supply. The display card uses a lot of power, to achieve the display rates. Try a heavier duty power supply

I turn on my pc all fine screen says no signal help please

Verify that the VGA cable is fully seated and connected. If you can test the computer on another monitor or test another computer on that monitor. Are you getting any video display on the monitor? Does it display the start-up screen then goes away when windows starts? If so start the computer and press F5. A menu will come up and select to start computer in VGA mode. This should bring up windows so you can change the screen resoloution to something the monitor can handle. If the computer does not display anything and the monitor is testing good then the on-board video or video card might be faulty. You could change the video card if it has one or add one to the system if it has on-board video. You could also try re-setting the BIOS jumper to clear the cmos or pull out the watch battery for 20 seconds. Another thing to try is to disconnect all, hard drive, floppy drive, and memory dimms and see if it boots up with display. If that works the you will need to re-install each piece of hardware one at a time and re-boot until the problem happens again. Once it does that is your problem device. You could also try swapping out the power supply and see if that is the cause of the problem.

No display

you need to boot to safemode and reset your resolution it sounds like someone has set the resolution higher than the monitor can support, just press F8 right after the post screen goes away when you turn it on, then select safe mode, once in safe mode go to your display settings and set the res and color depth to a low settings ie. 800x600 or 1024x768 then reboot and it should work

Here is a link to download a file to flash your BIOS that will make the password go away.

You will need an external USB Floppy Drive since im assuming you cannot get into windows from your laptop.

Out of Range is frequency is not matching

To solve this, wwhile booting Press F8 to get advanced boot menu from that select "Enable VGA mode"

change the display properties

right click on desktop - Select properties - Settings - Advanced (from bottom) - goto monitor tab - change the frequecny to default. and restart the system normal mode

Adaptor settings

Take out the video adaptor that you have installed and see if you can boot up with only the on-board video, first in standard mode and then if it won't work, try the safe mode..

Did you change any other settings?

Also, when you had the video card installed, did you disable the onboard video?

Hp pavilion zd8000 ati mobility radeon x600 128 mb

A bit late over a year has passed.........

I have a smilar problem, with the ATI enabled the laptop black screens on startup.
If you disable the ATI x600 in Device Manager (using safe mode) the laptop works fine as the ATI is not being used.

Solution is to replace the ATI x600, which unfortunately is a specialist job as this is soldered directly onto the motherboard. Or replace the motherboard.

I have located a company in Manchester (called CRM) that repairs HP computers, and they can repair/replace the ATI for around £175, or replace the motherboard for about £250. Replacing the board gives you a 12months warranty. add VAT to those figures. There phone number is 01618881232, I have found them to be very helpful.

Stripy Boot Up

is it a new graphic card? Sometimes that happens when the graphic card gets overheated and fries up some chips. and sometimes those lines appear when the graphic card has fault in Direct Draw. Try setting your BIOS settings to default. if it doesn't work, i recommend you to take the graphic card to the nearest hardware tech ;)
