You need to be a little more specific.

1. are you using a notebook or a desktop?
2. do you see anything on the screen?

if your using a notebook and you see no display,
then it means your inverter is most likely bad, and the lcd screen will need to be replaced.

if its a monitor connected to your desktop, i would check the cables and also the contrast and brightness buttons on the screen. if that still does not work, most likely, you have a bad monitor.

thanks adi

My dell optiplex gx620 does not start and it shows no. 3 and 4 lights illuminated on its front . what could be the problem.?


One of your memory chips is bad.

Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Diagnostic Lights caution.gif CAUTION: Before you begin any of the procedures in this section, follow the safety instructions located in the Product Information Guide. To help you troubleshoot a problem, your computer has four lights labeled "1," "2," "3," and "4"on the front or back panel. The lights can be off or green. When the computer starts normally, the patterns or codes on the lights change as the boot process completes. When the computer starts normally, the patterns or codes on the lights change as the boot process completes. If the POST portion of system boot completes successfully, all four lights display solid green. If the computer malfunctions during the POST process, the pattern displayed on the LEDs may help identify where in the process the computer halted.
note.gif NOTE: The orientation of the diagnostic lights may vary depending on the system type. The diagnostic lights can appear either vertical or horizontal.

I turn on my Acer Aspire 3050 and get a power light but, nothing on the monitor. I have tried taking off the battery and unplugging the power source, holding down the power key for 20 seconds. When I try...


If you do have the devices displayed on screen when you start it ..before getting to windows screen ..and this blank screen only gets after ..It may be a windows error ...and reinstalling it or running the recovery partition will fix this ..It may be related with the updates for video card ..made auto ..and installed a wrong driver or setting ..(unsupported ) ..If this is the case try to turn it off by unplugging ..and will give you the boot mode screen ..where you should load safe mode..If you manage to load it in safe mode just reinstall the video driver for it and it may work ..
Another case it may be a damaged display screen or damaged wiring or the inverter for it ..(in this case you should check and see what s wrong and change the inverter if it is the case..Basically you will have just shadows on screen and miss the back light )..
anyway ..try to see if it starts to bios at least ..and if it does..it is just a corrupted windows and need to be reinstalled from scratch and will work ..
If it does not load windows either bios settings ..but still opens and looks blank ..(this I assume it does not mean it do not open ..but opens and shows an empty screen ) You may see the cause for not loading BIOS ...the cmos may be damaged or the battery for it empty ..and you will need to reinstall Bios ..
Usually if it is a damaged video card will not open at all and make some beeps noises ..so this may be excluded..So ..it is either the operating system ..or the wrong driver for video ..(and wrong ..unsupported setting ..and in this case will even load windows but you can not see it pass the windows logo ..and you should hear the log in ..
Or it may be something wrong with the ram memory and in this case is explainable if it does not load bios settings ..To see about this..just open the back lid for ram memory ..and remove them ..and place them back one by one ..and try to boot up each time ..If it shows devices and loads at least bios ..with one ..it means it works ..check them all and eliminate the faulty ones..Try several times to press them in the slot ..cause sometimes just do not make a good contact and nothing wrong with the modules physically .

''error loading operating system'' on Nec Versa laptop.


First if you haven't already unplug the power and take out the battery for a minute or so. Then reinstall the battery and connect power. Then try and start in Safe Mode, To do this start consistently pressing and releasing the F8 key while pc is powering on, continue until screen should display a similar screen as when turning on normally. From there ( hopefully it has started up ) you should be able to go to START MENU> click/open Control Panel> click/open ADD OR REMOVE PROGRAMS and start removing any programs, if not all, that look like they are using a lot of memory. Doing the SYSTEM RECOVERY is going to uninstall EVERYTHING and reinstall it anyway. Also remember you can only have one security program running other wise they will conflict with each other and cause numerous problems.

Clear temporary files and browsing history. Open IE, even if you don't ever use it, open TOOLS> open INTERNET OPTIONS> In the BROWSING HISTORY section click DELETE > Then click DELETE ALL
One other thing you may want to do is START MENU> RIght click MY COMPUTER> click PROPERTIES> click ADVANCED> click SETTINGS in the PERFORMANCE box and select 'LET WINDOWS CHOOSE WHAT'S BEST FOR MY COMPUTER'
Hope this helps.

I could not access BIOS or anything else on my computer.


Starting the PC without memory will result in a ?beep code? error, which is the beeping you are hearing. Replacing the memory should make the beeping go away. As far as accessing your BIOS if you PC won?t display anything they accessing your system BIOS won?t accomplish anything. -When you start your PC with the memory installed do you see anything displayed on the screen? -Was the PC operating correctly before your reinstall? -Why did you void the CMOS? -Why did you remove the PC memory?
