    Try to hook a different monitor up instead of trying different cards. Who said your motherboard went bad? Also, what cards did you replace? Do you have two video cards?

It is possible that there isn't any hardware problem at all - Where are you plugging your monitor into on the computer? From the sounds of it, your saying you have two video cards. There is a onboard one and a primary(you can see the card). If you have a primary ensure your plugging your monitor into the primary because otherwise its trying to use the disabled onboard if your plugging it in there. If this is not the problem, please leave a comment and I'll get back to you =)

Gateway dx 4320 wont turn on


It could be a few things:

a faulty power switch - you say that you've changed the PSU, but did that include the switch?

it could also be a Faulty Motherboard or CPU. If either of them are fried, you won't see anything come on either.

I'd suggest checking the switch first because that's the cheapest and easiest to replace

Hello
That is a video device problem.First you need to check you monitor cable,it runs from the monitor into the back of the pc into your video device.
Hopefully you have a video card,but check that the cable is secure and tight.You may want to remove it and put it back on just to be sure.

If this doesnt help try restarting the pc and hold the f8 key down and select safe mode.If you get a picture on your monitor you may need to reinstalll the video drivers.If not then you have a bad video card or a bad video chip depending on what is in your pc.

try these steps - in this order:
  1. Download the latest drivers for your video card but do not install it yet.
  2. Uninstall any video card software installed (ati catalyst/control center - nvidia etc)
  3. go to device manager, expand video adapters, and right click to uninstall them both.
  4. Reboot your pc. Windows will install a generic driver when it boots up. From there, install the new video drivers you downloaded in step 1.
  5. Get the monitor driver here: http://www.zdnetasia.com/downloads/pc/swinfo/0,39043052,50002410r-39518824s,00.htm and install it
  6. That should fix it. Let me know what happens.

My Moniter Is Blank


First make sure that you have the P4 connector (the square one at the top of the board connected to your P4 power from the power supply.
From here I would disconnect the data cables from the hdd, optical drives, and remove all video/peripheral cards. You should have only the RAM, CPU, and power connected, then try to boot again.
If this works, then add 1 device at a time until it fails to start. This will isolate the component that is giving you problems.
With a single stick of RAM, try to get the computer to POST. (if possible, test the ram in another machine first to ensure that RAM is good)

Maybe video adapter


(I'd like to stress that this is mostly speculative. Please don't read this as gospel or a guaranteed fix; it's just an idea or two.)

True, it may be the video adapter. But there are a number of different things that can cause a computer to not display anything during its boot, even though you can tell it's booting. The best thing to try first is (and only if you're comfortable digging in a computer) unplug all the peripherals in the machine (e.g. HDD, CD, etc.) and RAM and (if it's an add-on card) the video card and turn on the computer. Obviously, it won't boot properly, but as you slowly add components back in (one at a time) you might find the culprit.
Basically, a problem like this can be traced back to either a short/static build-up in some component or a failing/dead video adapter. If you're getting absolutely no display (which your description indicates) it's definitely a hardware issue of some sort.

Of course, it really helps to have a P.O.S.T. card handy to determine exactly what's going on and most computer shops you take a machine to will have one. Often, local shops will diagnose a problem for free or a nominal fee.

HP pavillion a800n pc wont' boot up..I get nothing...


After much trial-and-error, I finally figured out the solution for this common issue with certain HP Pavillion models. It turns out to be a design flaw with the front-panel memory card reader. Somehow the card reader's firmware gets scrambled, and it prevents the computer from booting. You can test this on your machine by temporarily disconnecting the card reader cable at the motherboard header. Voila - I'll bet you $1 that your computer will now boot!

The solution is buried deep inside this HP tech support document. The card reader firmware needs to be reset.

Here\'s how to fix it once and for all:

1) With the computer power unplugged (duh), open up the case & disconnect the card reader cable at the card reader itself - NOT the end that connects to the motherboard header. Make sure the cable end is not touching any metal components before proceeding to step 2 (another duh).

2) With the cable still disconnected, fire up the computer. The tech support doc says to let it boot into Windows and stay there for about 5 minutes.

3) Shut the computer down and reconnect the cable to the card reader.

4) Turn your computer back on - your memory card reader will work and, most importantly, the computer will no longer hang at POST!

I suspect that when you fire up the computer without the cable connected, the card reader is designed to reset its firmware by grounding out through the case - sort of like a CMOS Reset jumper on a motherboard.

I hope this solution is helpful to others.

best,
JohnB
