Computer turns on but can't get anything to display on monitor

When I power on the computer it starts up, the fans turn on, the lights turn on but I can't get anything onto the monitor. I have tried different monitors so I know it's not the monitor. Could it be the video card? If so how do I change it out? Any help would be appreciated.

Good day sir/ma'am, it looks like the problem is in the Memory, not your video card. open your pc access lid usually on the side. and locate your RAM. its usually a long flat module mounted on the motherboard. on its side press the lock to release the module, then reinsert it again. test. if still doesnt work remove it and clean the contact by an eraser. yes eraser, just like you are erasing the foil contact. do it on both side. replace it again then test. if still does not work do it several times. you may try to reseat the video card if its an expansion card. if it is built-in. just leave it. hope this may solve it. if you have any more questions feel free to ask. thanks.

Trying to remove the video card adapter (if your using one) and plug the vga cord to the built-in video card if it works then try resetting the expansion card and transfer the vga connection. you can also try to reset the memory modules.

When i switch on the monitor the on/off button blinks and i don't get a picture. johanalvemalm@people.net.au


Most monitors will behave that way if they don't get a signal from the computer so there's nothing to display. A quick check of the monitor itself is to disconnect the signal cable from the computer and then turn the monitor on. Most monitors will display some kind of a message that there's no input and to check your cable connection. Then the power indicator changes color as the monitor blanks out.

You will probably find that your computer isn't starting up when you turn on the power. A common computer problem is that it will turn on when you press the power button, showing a power light and you'll hear the fans inside start running, but it never actually starts running. Then there's no video to the monitor and you see the trouble you described.

The monitor may still be bad. If everything seems to be starting normally and you hear the Windows startup sound through your speakers, but the display stays blank, try another monitor. If that one works, you'll need to have the bad one serviced or replace it. If the test monitor is also blank, the video circuitry in your computer has failed. If the video is built into the motherboard, you can install a plug-in video card as a replacement.

If the computer is turning on but never starts running, that can be a pain to figure out because several things can cause the trouble. The most frequent causes are a bad power supply or motherboard. Bad RAM or a defective drive or other device connected to the motherboard can also keep the board from starting up. The processor itself can fail, but that's not common. I start by removing everything except for the power supply, processor and fan to see if the motherboard is starting. If the motherboard doesn't give a "no memory" error (usually a long beep), you need a power supply or motherboard. Otherwise, the basic hardware is fine, and you can start replacing parts until the trouble comes back, and then you'll know what caused it.

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

My dryer is model res7648eq2..i have power to it and the light on the inside comes on just wont start when i push the button..it worked earlier today


Do not fear because all may not be lost! Follow these steps to determine why your computer won't turn on.
Difficulty: Average Time Required: Anywhere from 10 minutes to a few hours or more depending on why the computer won't turn on Here's How:
  1. Try to relax! There's a good chance you can figure out exactly why your computer won't start and then get it back up and running.
    I don't usually start a troubleshooting guide with the same advice a therapist might give her client, but when faced with a computer that won't start most people tend to panic, worried that all the data on their PC is gone forever.
    It's true that the most common reason a computer won't start is because a piece of hardware has failed or is causing a problem but that hardware isn't usually a hard drive. Your data is probably safe - just not accessible.
  2. . Try these steps if your computer will not turn on and is showing no sign at all of receiving power - no fans running and no lights on the computer case.
    Important: You may or may not see a light on the back of your PC depending on the kind of power supply you have and the exact cause of the problem.
    Note: Don't worry about the monitor yet. If the computer is not turning on because of a power issue then the monitor certainly can't display anything from the computer. Your monitor light will likely be amber/yellow if your computer has stopped sending information to it.
  3. Follow these steps if, when you turn your computer on, it promptly powers back off.
    You'll probably hear the fans inside your computer turn on, see the lights on the front of your computer turn on or flash, and then it will all stop - always before the boot process is complete. You may or may not also hear beeping coming from inside your PC
  • If your desktop computer does nothing at all when you try to start it, first check that the power cable is securely plugged in at the back of the computer as well as into a working power outlet. It's amazing how often this is the case.
  • If you're starting from a button on the keyboard, make sure the keyboard is connected to the computer.
  • If the computer is plugged into a surge protector, see if the surge protector has a reset switch that you can push. (If it doesn't have a reset switch and the problem is with the surge protector, it will need to be replaced.) Try plugging a lamp or other device into one of the surge protector's outlets to make sure it's working.
  • If you can hear the computer's fan or hard-disk drive, or if you can see indicator lights on the main unit but the monitor stays dark, make sure that the monitor is connected to a working power source, that it's turned on and that it's securely connected to the computer via the video cable.
  • If the monitor and computer have power but the computer displays a "Non-system disk or disk error" message, check to make sure you didn't leave a disk in the A: drive. If you did, eject it and restart the computer.
  • If the operating system still won't start even though the computer and monitor have power, try restarting with a Windows CD-ROM in the CD-ROM drive or, if you've got a Macintosh, with a Mac OS disc in the CD-ROM drive. (You can start a Mac from the CDROM drive by holding down the C key while starting up.)
  • If the operating system then starts, your problem is probably with the startup hard drive or with the operating system installed on it. If you can't fix the drive, you'll have to replace it

    My computer wont boot up the fan and light turn on for a second then goes right off....


    With the little bit of information presented, it appears that this is possible a power supply problem. One thing you can try is to unplug the power adapter from the laptop, remove the battery, then plug the power adapter back into the laptop. Then try to turn it on. If everything comes up normally, then the problem points, potentially, to the battery.
    Hope this helps!

    Mother board no display


    Looks like the lights are on? Fans spin? Sounds like the harddrives spinning? The power supply is bad. has just enough power to light lights, and spin fans, but not enough for the processor. (No beep sounds, because BIOS hasn't done a memory count. It's not going to)

    ALL the lights use less than 1 Watt.
    EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
    The harddrive just sitting there spinning, uses about 5 watts.

    Processors use 55 Watts to 125 Watts. Depends on the processor.
    Not enough power to turn the processor on, the computer won't work. Computer isn't working there isn't anything to turn the monitor on. No Signal.

    After turning off the monitor, can not be turned on?


    We need a little more information. After you turn it off, is the computer off, also? If you turn on the monitor (does it have a yellow or green light), and then turn on the computer, do you see anything on the monitor.
    Is the monitor plugged into the wall and is the power cord tightly plugged into the back of the monitor (sometimes comes loose).
    If the monitor will not turn on at all after you've checked the above things, then it has gone bad on you.
    If you get a light on it and you have turned on the computer but there is no display, it is very possibly the video card.
    Of course, this all assumes that the computer is actually starting up.
