Beep code and nothing on monitor

When power is turned on all I get is a long beep repeated every few seconds and nothing on the screen.  I hooked the screen up to another computer and it works fine. I unplugged from the motherboard what I think it the power supply (wires in a bundle go to the power supply and also to all the drives.  Any ideas?  If I could only get info on the screen I may be able to fix it, lol.  Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

    The only thing I see stamped on the motherboard that looks like it may be a model # is this...

    A7V8X-LA.  Could this be the model #? Thanks for your help, much appreciated.

You may be correct about it being a power supply but you need to know the manufacturer of the mother board and check out their website for error codes. Please list your motherboard name and model. A power supply is cheap enough to test your system and you can return it if it does not work. They are real easy to replace too. Unplug your system and leave unplugged for half hour before opening your system. There are 2- 4 screws on the back upper part of your computer and a harness connector that the power to the motherboard goes. It's a good idea to bring in your old power supply to match it with a new one.

    The name and type are stamped on your motherboard itself.

My hp touchsmart310 PC will switch on but there is nothing on the screen ?


You can perform these steps even though the screen is blank.
  1. Turn off the computer, and then remove the power cord.
  2. With the power cord disconnected, press and hold the power button for five seconds.
  3. Reconnect the power cord, and then turn on the computer.
  4. Repeatedly press the F10 key about once every second for five seconds after turning the computer on.
  5. Wait five seconds.
  6. Press the F5 key. This restores the default settings of the BIOS.
  7. Press the Enter key. This accepts the changes.
  8. Press the F10 key. This opens the Save and Exit window.
  9. Press the Enter key. This saves the changes, exits the BIOS, and then the computer restarts.
  10. After the computer restarts, the screen should display the HP logo.
Hope it helps!

Consecutive beeps last 10 seconds, silence for 5 seconds, the long beep for 10 seconds...pattern repeats. Nothing comes on screen. I removed single RAM card, tried other slot, same problem. I powered it on...


how many beeps any breaks between beeps and then how many like 3 beeps then stops for 1 sec then beep beep beep stop beep beep beep check to make sure that your installing your memory sticks right and they are seated all the way make sure all cards are seated right all wires are not shorting out and a worst case your cpu is good

I have power to my ps3 but no pictu on the tv.


Also, if it was previously plugged in to HD, it might need to be switched back to SD cable. To do this switch your ps3 off, then press and hold the power button when you turn it on. It will beep once when you turn it on, then beep again after a few seconds. Once it's beeped the second time the display settings will be reset and hopefully it will show up on the screen.

I hook everything up and turn it on but i get nothing


if you just built a new pc, and hooked up your power button and reset button and mixed up the possitive and negitive wires you may have fried your motherboard. If you hold the power button for five seconds and your pc does not power down, it's fried.

Turns on and off repeatedly


My AIPTEK 1080p was powering on but the screen was turning off within one second of turning the unit on. I verified that the camera was still working and just the output onto the screen failed. I was able to resolve this by hooking the camcorder up to the TV and viewing the menus on the TV and then turning the camcorder off with the power button. I think this problem happened because I didn't do a "clean" shutdown the last time I had my aiptek hooked up to the TV. It is now working perfectly!
