No Video Output - New RAM - Tried Most Things


I recently changed the RAM in my machine. The computer boots but does not have any output or any beeps. Just a black screen. I have removed the RAM sticks individually and still no luck. I have tried putting in a video card to and that hasn't solved the problems. I dont know what else to do.

Also when holding the power button the system will not shut down.

Are you able to help please?

    I have indeed tried the original RAM that the machine was running fine with beforehand with no luck.

    I have tried taking out the CMOS battery each time trying the RAM.


  • ShauneyB Feb 15, 2008

    I have reset the BIOS and the CMOS each time I made a change. I have changed the apropriate BIOS settings to display out of the right adapter each time.

    I have tried the new RAM, the old RAM and some other RAM.

    I don't know what else to try!


  • ShauneyB Feb 20, 2008

    Right it seems there is some confusion to the problem when reading it.


    Added some new RAM to my computer. It is withing the motherboard specifications.

    On booting the machine after the swap it would not POST.

    Since then I have tried the original RAM in every combination, different RAM in different combinations and with single sticks.

    Each time I have tried to change some hardware since the problem I have reset the CMOS and taken out the BIOS battery.

    I have also tried a VGA video card and changed the apropriate BIOS settings to the right output.

    Each time the hard drive and processor and all other hardware is sounding as normal.

    Still no luck!!!

    Any other ideas?

    I stupidly switched the RAM while the laptop was hibernating. I did not take out the battery and thought the thing was totally off. Afterward, no video. Replaced the original RAM without luck.

Without sounding silly. Have you tried replacing your new memory with your old memory? Just to see if your Pc boots normally. This will narrow down the root cause. This board only will only handel this type of memory.
Single channel, unbuffered, 2.5V DDR266/333/400, (2)184-pin DIMM sockets, max 2GB

    Should have come back sooner. Sorry. Ok, you mentioned you installed a video card. I ask that because your board has a intergrated video card. You need to make the correct changes in the bios. Taking out the battery to reset the bios settings is a good idea but you also need to move the cmos jumper position from pins 2&3 to pins 1&2, (pg. 4 in your manual) as well as removing the battery. Than return the battery & set the jumper back to pins 2&3. If your newer memory is within the spec's I listed above & your bios is set to AGP your system should boot & run.

    Ok, dwn to the basic's. Are you saying the Pc just lost display one day (no changes to system)? Than you tried other things like new memory ect? When you lost display was the rest of the system still running, like hard drive seemed to be running, floppy disk flashed at startup, cdrom light lit & keyboard lights still lit at boot up? Did you try putting memory into different slots & only use 1 dimm?

  • Mike Peluso

    It is still the basic's, you may not get a beep error code because your video is on board but you do have a spare AGP slot. So add a AGP video card & set your bios to goto AGP first. Also try another monitor just to cover all base's.

Hello. I recently bought a new motherboard, fmb-0703; and windows will not load. It starts, but does not fully load. I'm running windows 7 pro 32 bit. Bios boots, every works except windows

I could be a couple of things. If it is not loading correctly More than likely something to do with memory either motherboard ram or video ram. try a live boot cd and see if it loads like hirams boot cd with live windows. it is free. also you can the motherboard and ram and hard drive the the live cd to pinpoint hardware problems. just a thought. good luck.

Before booting 3 long beeps 10 sec silent then 3 long beeps and so on

This is an issue that one of the devices is not properly seated on the board or it is not detecting them correctly.

To fix:

1. Remove all devices from the board. All cables coming from Hard drive/CD-rom. Remove the RAM and processor. LEAVE TH E POWER SUPPLY CABLES CONNECTED TO THE BOARD.

2. Re-seat the processor on the board.

3. Re seat the memory on the board.

4. Now re-seat the video card making sure that you push it firmly in place. Connect a monitor to the video output.

Try and boot the computer. If it boots and you see output on the screen then the issue is fixed.
If if does not boot you have a problem with one of the following: RAM, Processor, Video Card, or motherboard.

No video output. bleeping every 7 seconds

This beeping is usually caused by a bad Memory or Ram chip. The memory is the chip that is inserted in the purple slots in your display picture. Remove them if there is more than one and replace one by one. Make sure they are firmly reseated or it could damage the motherboard. Make sure both clips on either side are fastened properly.

Try booting computer again. If it continues beeping the memory module may be bad. Replace it with a new one.

Thanks and good luck!

Asus mb wl300 amd 64 4000+ won't boot to bios.

To make sure it isn't anything else, pull all cards, and drive cables from the board so the only thing left connected is the power connectors to the motherboard, the speaker, and the power button. Pull all the ram cards.

Now power up the computer. If you hear a series of beeps then the computer recognizes there is no ram on the board. At this point I would take the power supply out and have it tested. If you do not hear a series of beeps I would still have the power supply tested as it could be the 12v is fine but the 5 and 3.3 volt side is bad.

If power supply tests good then I would replace both the motherboard and processor. You take a risk of burning a new processor if it's the motherboard causing the problems.

Computer on, but no video output

sounds more like your motherboard,

unplug everything so all you have is ram (1 piece), cpu + harddrive(essential parts) no sound card, use on board graphics if you have it and if no luck then more likely the motherboard. Ihad a works machine go down before christmas with the same symptons and the problem was the motherboard

hope this helps

No video output

try this -remove the card then restart the pc (if this is xp) start/right click my computer/properties/device manger-look for "display adapters" find the onboard type you have and uninstall it power off then install the new card you might have to look in device manager for something referred to as graphics controller
