There is no way it's the video card because if it was, your bios wouldn't be showing up.

Try resetting your SEMOS by doing this, it'll put your bios at stock settings. To do this, unplug your computer then take out the battery on your motherboard for 10 mins, plug your computer back in. With computer on, re-insert battery.

You should also try removing any USB devices that may be causing your computer to re-boot.

It COULD be an issue with the video card or the memory. Try to remove and hook it up again. But make sure it will not loose.

Thank you for using FixYa

I would try shutting down the computer in the normal way, and turning off the monitor.
Boot up and turn the monitor back on.
If it still doesn't work, then I would check the cables and power plugs and wall plugs.
Check the mouse and keyboard cable and any other cables plugged into the computer.
The next step requires a seperate monitor or laptop.
Try unplugging the monitor and pluging in another monitor. Most laptops have a common
VGA adaptor jack or even an Svideo jack.
If the other monitor does not work, Then take to a qualified technician for repair.
It could be your power supply in the computer or video controller.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

My Foxconn motherboard M61PMV suddenly stopped booting up. No beeps, no monitor but computer powers up. Before this everything was working fine and the computer was shut down normally. Please help me solve...


Will your system come up in safe mode? Try a shutdown and unplug the tower. Plug the tower back in and see if it will come up in safe mode. If it does, go to "control panel", find "device manager" and right click on it. Find "display adaptors" and click on box at right(has a little + inside), it should drop down your device. right click o it and you sjhould see 'enable" or "disable". If it says enable click on that ad you should be good to go. Make sure your connections between tower and monitor are good.

Try this for starters. Shut down the computer like you normally do. Next turn it on and while its booting up press the F8 key(keep tapping it). You should get a menu and on that menu, one of the choices is Safe mode. Select it and press enter. This will boot your computer into a Diagnostic mode where you can troubleshoot hardware software and windows problem in general. If you successfully get into safe mode answer yes to the question it asks and then goto your Device manager..you can get there by rightclicking the mycomputer icon and select properties from the drop down menu then select the Hardware tab on top.and click DEVICE MANAGER. In this screen look for your display adapter..higlight your graphics adapter and right click...then select uninstall...now reboot your computer normally this time dont press the f8 key..gointo WIndows normally. This should reinstall your graphics card and possibly fix the problem.

Hi, my Dell Vostro 200 monitor isn't working; when I boot up the light is blue and everything else seems to work but the monitor says 'Entering power save mode' or something and it shuts off. I can't get...


Your monitor is most likely fine. That message is the monitor telling you it's not getting any video signal from the computer.

If you're hearing all the sounds that go with a normal startup (usually a beep from the motherboard, then hard drive activity, finally the normal Windows startup sound through the speakers), and seeing that message, then you may have a monitor problem. You can try another monitor as a test.

The trouble is probably that the computer is turning on, but not actually starting up. This may be due to power supply, memory, processor or motherboard problems. Or one of the drives or expansion cards connected to the motherboard may be keeping the system from starting.

Make sure the memory modules are firmly seated in their sockets, and disconnect everything else but the power supply. If the motherboard, processor and memory are working, the system will start and you'll see something on the monitor. Then you can start reconnecting parts and see when the problem returns.

My computer doesn't load on the screen as I turn it in


A solid amber power LED on a Dell System is indicative of a no post. There are 4 diagnostics LEDs on most Dell Towers (Either on the back marked ABCD, or on the front marked 1234) they can give more details of what the POST problem is.
Troubleshooting: Disconnect all external connections to tower except power, turn it on, see if the LED indications changed. If they change, then connect disconnected items one at a time till the failed item is found. If no change, the open tower, remove all PCI expansion cards, see if system will boot. If still no change, then most likely a motherboard failure. Take RAM out, see if you get a Beep error code when powered on, if no beeps, replace motherboard. If it does beep, try RAM modules one at a time, if it boots with 1 but not the other, replace the effected module. If no boot, with either replace MB

Intellistation e pro acts as if booting, but doesn't


Its nothing but the port of your display cable in computer tower and the display card. If its inbuilt (on board) display card then the slot where the extention is linked. If you can then just open the tower and change the slot of the display card. 100% gurantee it would work.

Sounds like to me that either you're missing a bootable OS or its the harddrive. If it beeps, chances are the OS. You can buy a copy of Vista and have someone install that for you or you can do it yourself. But if you are nervous about such or dont know about computers, have someone else do it for you.

My computer crashed and now the monitor goes into power save mode


You said that you hear a series of beeps, if you hear this kind of sounds maybe there is a loose connection from the CPU. Try to remove the Memory and put it back again.

Temperature Error?


The lcd display, must have a temperature sensor connected to the board, remove and re boot pc , as the beeps are indicating a overheated processor. See if pc boots without beeps, and check the pc temperature in the bios screen is normal. If so board fault on sensor.
