Desktop turns on , doesnt beep, black screen, with orange light in front. instead of green


So if I understand you correctly when you turn it on you get the oraange light on the front, the sound of the fans turning but no beep and no video output?

If this is correct then you likely have a POST problem (Power On Self Test), the beep you normally hear is conformation that the computer has passed the POST correctly - if you no longer have the POST beep then I suggest you look up your motherboard manual for more info but the basic check is to confirm all the cables and drives are well connected, the RAM is fully and correctly inserted. If you have recently added any new devices to your computer (graphics card or RAM etc) then remove this and see if the POST problem goes away. You may also find in your motherboard manual something labeled CMOS Clear - this will be a jumper (little pins sticking out) of the motherboard which is essentially a reset for the BIOS which may help rule out an issue in the BIOS config.

Good luck!

Black screen at startup


It sounds like the graphics card or on board graphics is causing the issue, as the external monitor is not working either. Hopefully its a graphics card which can be replaced easily, or there is an expansion slot for a graphics card to be added.
One thing you could try is resetting the CMOS by removing the battery from the motherboard and leaving for ten minutes. Replace the battery and try booting.

Optiquest q20wb LCD has black screen & green power light flashing


Hi Rickyknows2,
If you are not hearing any beep I assume you are having problem with your video so, please ...
- open your PC and check whether your video card is well placed (sometimes it looks fine but you never know) remove it and put it back.
- If you used to remove often the cable from the PC, it might be that the pins from the monitor cable are even broke... please check.
- try to find another video card and replace it just to make sure its the video ...
- last... reset the bios (but I doubt that this is your problem)
chsers ..

Will not come on...green light blinks showing power, but screen remains black...have tried all resets, hooked up different computers to it etc...


It's possibly the cable/plug points. I leave the vga plug unscrewed so that the computer is easy to move around and I sometimes have problems with the screen not coming on. Try a different cable.

Blank screen upon startup


Try taking out the hard disk, plug in power and see if you have a display on your screen or external monitor. if same thing happen, try taking out the memory card. If you hear a beep sound it's a faulty mem. card, if no beep sound appears I suspected it's a motherboard faulty.

No video output from my computer.


Are you using an ON-board graphics adapter or a separate VIDEO CARD? Some motherboards lets you set the video output to "DISABLE ONBOARD GRAPHICS" if you have installed a video card (BIOS). You may have plugged the monitor cable to the onboard D-sub connection instead of using the Video Card D-sub connector.

Normally a flashing green power light means the input it receives from the video output is too much. You may have set the resolution too high or the bit depth too high. Consult the monitor manual on the rates it can handle. To be safe, try starting the computer on safe mode just to check if it is indeed the problem. If it boots properly and you can see your desktop, then there's a chance that the setting was too much for the monitor to handle.

Hope this gives you an idea.

Hang at startup (BIOS)


Hi,
Yes laptops can work without battery.
If the laptop is hanging on Dell logo and entering into BIOS then normally it is HDD issue but you have already checked without HDD so might be it is RAM or Board issue.
You can check with PC 133.
Please check your Laptop with minimal boot once (by removing all external hardwares like modem,tv tuner or graphics if any) and if you are geting the display one of the devices is causing the issue whch could be diagnosed by connecting one by one.

Try getting a new AV Option, well actually first startup your PS3, startup your controller, and hit the center PS3 button, because those 2 options are only in the Main PS3 Option, which is accesed and closed through hitting the middle button on your controller. Hope this helped.
