My cpu has power but i cant see anything on my monitor

Check that the Monitor power cable is firmly connected to the mains and the back of the monitor. Do u have the Power light on in front of the monitor?
Check the Signal cable running from the Computer to the Monitor. Is it firmly fixed at both ends?
If still no joy, plug a known working monitor to your computer. If u get a display, then your monitor might have gone bad or it might have been set to the lowest brightness (check the setting knob).
If swap monitor does not also work, then your Display (VGA) card is suspect, faulty. You may want to replace your VGA card.

My son bought an HP a705w 3 weeks ago. The thing worked fine at the home where he got it, I was there with him. He got it home and removed the cooling fan from the video card(which I told him NOT to do!)He...

Locate the VGA connector (encircled in red) at the back of the PC:


Plug the monitor cable in it and start the system. If its functional the display should come.

Remove and re-install the RAM. It helps sometimes. Remember to un-plug the system from the mains before carrying out this procedure.

I checked the mother board specs (HP A705W) and it has no external video card slot nor any fan except on the processor. Did your son put a PCI video card?

By the way, it isn't wise to remove the fan if there is any on any device. Not only the device will be damaged but can result in a fire hazard as these components get VERY hot during working.

If the after reinstalling the RAM, PC does not boot, its likely a hardware fault. You have to get it checked by a tech. If its not repairable a new board is required and make sure that other components are working before making a purchase. Mother board model is MS-6577.

Hp pavilion a705w. no peripheral response

The fact is *********** board is very likely the matter. See all devices that do not need the motherboard to respond are all working (cd/dvd tray opens and closes, fans are on etc). On the other hand all devices that need the motherboard to respond are not working (keyboard, optical mouse, etc). It is more or less conclusive.

Motherboard Will not turn moniter on Hp pavilion a705w intel inside celeron

Monitor and USB problems are usually down to damaged RAM where the monitor is plugged into the motherboards monitor port. I would recommend having the RAM replaced as a solution.

Connect projector to HP desktop

If you are attempting to connect an LCD projector to a laptop,you connect a monitor cable to your video card and the other end to the monitor input connector. You may have to use an adapter, I know on my LCD projector I had to use a DVI to VGA connector.
Can't say much more not knowing if you are having a problem with a particular brand of projector

No output to monitor, light turns yellow

check to make sure the Video cable is still firmly seated on both computer and monitor. Next the case may need to be opened up to assure the graphics card has not been unseated from the main board.

Also make sure no pins have been bent or disturbed on each Item.

Hp pavilion a705w Light flashed in front and back on and off

Try a different monitor with your PC. If it does the same thing then you know the problem is with your PC. Also connect your PC to a different monitor. If it works OK then your monitor is bad. Does it beep at startup? Describe beep codes and someone on this website will decipher them for you. This might help to diagnose the problem.
