Slimline if on, but won't boot up and there is no signal being output to the monitor

Posted by on

  • Larry Shannon Oct 01, 2009

    There is no beep when trying to boot up. No signal goes to the monitor. Tried the monitor with another computer and the monitor works just fine. I don't know if the graphics card is attached to the motherboard or if it is mounted in a slot.

    When you turn the pc on do you hear a beep? Does it have a seperate graphics card or is it built into the motherboard?

HP had a lot of problems with these PCs, the video card is on-board and seems to be failing a lot. They even had a recall on these, but unless it is still under warranty you are out of luck. I am currently working on one right now that has the same problem. I installed a low profile ATI 4600XT video card and still nothing. I went into the BIOS and somehow navigate to the right spot to tell the PC not to use the on-board, but instead use the PCIe. It was a real pain when the screen is having a sync problem and everything looks funky. But even after that it still tries to boot using the defective on-board. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: hp pavilion slimline s3100n doesn't

Hi
First,try hooking it up to an external monitor if you have access to one.Unfortunately,we need video to start checking for what may be wrong.
Try the monitor and post back to let me know what happens,and if it shows on the external display we can start looking at potential problems and fixes.

SOURCE: hp pavilion slimline s3100n boots up - fan on - monitor reads no video signal

The most common causes are:

  1. Loose video cable on either monitor or back of desktop
  2. Bad monitor (only way to test monitor is hook it up to another machine or hook up a known working monitor to your existing machine.
  3. Bad video card - this is less likely since most video cards are on board but if you have a different card, check to ensure it's seated properly on the motherboard.

Monitor won't stay on


how is the monitor connected to the computer? what connection type is the monitor is it VGA or HDMI . What format is the computer video output is it VGA or HDMI. Also you may have two video outputs on the computer. Sometimes the motherboard vga output is disabled so that a much better video plug in card can be used which has its own video output port.

Pavilion s3620f has no video and won't boot


There could be many reasons for this. Open the case and make sure the components are plugged in tightly. Make sure the CPU Fan is spinning and is dust free.Reseat the RAM modules, make sure to clean the RAM slots before reseating the modules. If all this fails to give results, but a new power supply and try that, you do not have to install the power supply but can keep it outside and test it. If the MB is gone, then, look to see if she still has warranty, if not ebay may be a cheap answer for the same MB.

I have a HP Pavilion Slimline s3700y that doesn't always boot. Power is getting to the computer; the light on the back lights up as well as the lights on the front. However, power doesn't seem to...


If you saying "doesn't always boot", most common would be motherboard...
If your motherboard still beeps, then probably some other components has the problem like RAM, GPU card etc., depends on your motherboard.

Hope that give an idea...

I have a HP Pavillion Slimline S3500t; a few days ago the computer turned ff completely. Every time I have tried to reset it, or start it, the monitor give me an error message ''monitor going to sleep''...


When you boot the system, do you get any life at all in the monitor? Splash screen, perhaps?

You could try to boot it to safemode (tapping the F8 key on boot) to see if you get any image. Other than that, it looks as though your video bit the dirt. A replacement video card may be in order.

Hope this helps - do let us know how you make out.

Cheers,

Computer wont boot up


I take it that you are seeing the message "no signal" on the monitor. If this is true, then I would disconnect all the devices inside of the computer case except the CPU and memory. See if you get any video. If you do, then reconnect the devices (hard drive, CD, etc) until you find the one giving you a problem.
If you have done all this and still no video, I would suspect one of two things: Either the power supply or the motherboard.

No analog signal


Sounds like the graphics card is gone belly up. Try the monitor with another pc or just replace the graphics card.
