Re: no signal on monitor
The beeps you heard, 1 long two short is the bios telling you that there is a problem with your video card. Normally you would remove & reseat it. Not the case with the intergrated video. When you added an AGP card you should have been able to get video. All video is controlled by the intergrated video controller. If your sure the radeon works than all that is left is the mb controller which can't be fixed. There is a slim chance you might get a PCI video card to work.

Did you check your monitor with other system or individually. If it works fine in these conditions then the issue belongs to your pc. First of all, you have to confirm that is it the problem of VGA itself or the motherboard. For this, you have to see that does system beep when you start it because system with beeps having the error and the beep sound with continuous or 2-3 beeps relate with different issues. I am going to write down the beep conditions.
1 short beep
Normal POST - system is ok
2 short beeps
POST Error - error code shown on
Power supply or system board problem
Power supply, system board, or
Repeating short beeps
Power supply or system board problem
1 long, 1 short beep
System board problem
1 long, 2 short beeps
Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA)
1 long, 3 short beeps
Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA)
3 long beeps
3270 keyboard card
If this is the first time to turn you on your computer check first the power supply of your computer if connected to their proper connector. Check your memory if clip properly in there memory slot. If you are using Video Card check it if it is properly connected to the connector. Then connect your VGA connector at the back of your computer when you have video card connect the VGA Cable of you monitor to the video card VGA output if does not have connect it with the onboard VGA output. Then press the power switch if the unit is still no visual in monitor try to search or hear a beeping sound in your computer by its on board buzzer. Find which beep you hear from your computer.
No Beep- No Power, Loose Card, or Short. One Short Beep- Normal Post,, Computer is OK. 2 Short Beep- POST error, review screen for error code Continues Beep- No power, Loose Card, or Short Repeating Short Beep- No Power Loose Card or Short One Long And Short Beep- Motherboard Issue One Long and Two Short Beep- Video (mono/CGA Display Circuitry) Issue. One long and three short beep- Video (EGA) Display Circuitry Three Long Beep- Keyboard/ Keyboard Card Error One Beep, Blank or Incorrect Display -Video Display Circuitry
Hope this help with your problem. Keep on touch in fixya
the beeps codes means there is a problem with a piece of hardware (RAM, or graphics card ,etc)
I need to know the BIOS manufacturer to interpret the code (phoenix or award or AMI)
for COMPAQ it means BIOS error --and will have to reload it from a recovery cd.
for IBM it means system board failure-- need new mobo--for a beep code of 1 long and 2 short most all mean graphics card problem.
If this was helpful, please indicate so, if not , comment back so we can resolve this issue
Make sure that your computer unit is working. Sometimes we suspect that it is a monitor problem but usually, it is a frozen CPU set.
When you turn on the monitor, it should light the blue led and after a while, when it does not receive signal from the CPU, it will turn orange. If that is the case, the monitor is functioning well.
So what could be the problem?
Make sure that you hooked the monitor to the right VGA port. If you have an internal VGA port (built in with the motherboard) and you also have an external Video Card, you should hook it to the external VGA port and not the internal one since it is overridden by default.
Do you hear the "short beep" sound when you boot your PC? That signals a good video system. If you don't hear that beep sound (provided your PC's speakers are okay), you should open your CPU case and try to remove your memory modules (RAM). Clean the pins with an eraser and put it on.
Now, your computer should work fine and so with your monitor.
If you hear your computer beep once then your system has no problem. If it does'nt show a display, try to check the power of your monitor, if it has power. Check the power cords and also the vga connection.
This beeps occur when some parts inside the CPU are not connected properly. 11 Beeps is VGA Card not properly connected or bad. Try to use another VGA Card. And remove any PCI Cards that are connected inside and see to it only VGA Card is in to make sure the beeps or the Computer is going to run normally. Good luck! Please rate me.
As I can see the problem is not monitor but your PC if computer chasis beeping, depends on number of beeps the problem can be VGA card one long beep and 3 short or RAM if it beeping one by one short beep and finaly CPU if it continuosly beeps like police sirene. If beeps are pointing to VGA or RAM you must open computer chasis and plug out VGA and RAM and clean dust out of slots and of VGA card and RAM as well with painbrush and vacum cleaner and plug them back. Good luck!
