Place your finger on the heatsink for the chipset. Feel around for any extremely hot chips. If you find this, your Bios is shot. If you cannot locate the bios chip, just feel all the chips. The Bios chip should be mildly warm but never HOT!

    Yes, if a programmed IC (bios chip) is fryed, then that is the end of the road for that motherboard. Everything else should be ok though (HDD, CD-ROM, Processor, etc).

No display


This issue can be caused by any of the below possibilities.

  1. Monitor is not on
  2. Computer is asleep
  3. Connections not connected properly.
  4. Monitor settings are not correct.
  5. No Post.
  6. Hardware issue.
Solution: The following is monitor troubleshooting. If your monitor receives a proper display until it gets into Windows 3.x, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows ME, or Windows XP please refer to document CH000192.

Monitor is not on

Make sure the monitor is on. If no power light (green or orange light) is seen on the monitor display try pressing the power button until it comes on. If no light comes on after several attempts continue to below connections not connected properly.

Computer is asleep

If your computer monitor was on and you stepped away from the computer and upon returning it was black it's likely that the computer is asleep. Try moving your mouse, clicking the mouse buttons, and/or pressing any key (space bar) on the keyboard to wake it up.

Connections not connected properly

vga.jpgMake sure that you are connecting the monitor to the back of the computer in the 15-pin connector as shown to the right or older computer 9-pin connection.

If the computer is properly plugged in, make sure it's getting getting power.

If you are not receiving power from a known working wall outlet and if the power cord is removable, replace it with the one connected to the computer and attempt to power on the monitor again. If the monitor still does not get power or it is not removable, it is recommended that the monitor be replaced or serviced at a local TV / Computer repair shop.

If the monitor is receiving power, check the status light.

If the light is orange or flashing ensure that the monitor is not in a suspend mode by moving the mouse or pressing a key on the keyboard. If the computer does not get a display by moving the mouse or touching the keyboard, turn off the computer and monitor and reconnect the data cable from the back of the computer, and if removable, the back of the monitor. Turn the computer back on; if you still encounter the same issue, continue reading through the other possibilities.

Monitor settings are not correct

Ensure that the brightness and contrast is turned up or attempt to adjust the brightness and contrast. If adjusting the brightness or contrast has no affect on the monitor continue reading through the other possibilities.

No Post

Does the computer beep when it is powered on and/or does it appear that the computer has activity? If the computer does not beep or beeps abnormally it is possible that the computer itself is experiencing a hardware issue or is exhibiting a No Post.

Steps on troubleshooting an irregular POST or no beeps can be found on document CH000607.

Hardware Issue

If you have followed the above recommendations and are still encountering the same issue, it is likely that the computer may have either a bad video card or monitor. The best method of determining this is to do one or both of the following

  • Disconnect your monitor and attempt to connect it to another computer. This can be a friend or family's computer and/or it can be taken to a service center.
  • Borrow a computer monitor and connect it to your computer. This will not harm the other computer monitor in any way.

If your monitor works on another computer it is safe to assume that the video card or potentially the motherboard within the computer is bad. Steps in troubleshooting a video card can be found on document CH001028.

My bios speaker will beep on startup but nothing more. What avenue should I approach to get past this part of startup?


First you need to know which BIOS you have and how many beeps it is producing... these beeps are the POST - Power On Self Test. They tell us if there are problems such as missing keyboard, video card not working, memory faults etc...

Then you need to go to the appropriate BIOS site and see what the number of beeps mean.

If it is a single beep - it means all is well...
As you are not getting anything more you should check to see if the Hard Drive (HD) light flashes - if so - the HD is probably operating ok and loading your system but there is either a problem with your monitor or video card... borrow another monitor and see if that helps...

But it all depends on the number of beeps you get and what kind - long and short beeps (like morse code).

If this helped you at all please vote!

No beep sound, no display but all fan are functioning


no error beep code means, everything is good as far as the computer goes.
check the monitor, make sure the power cord is pushed in tight, there is power to the monitor,and the data connector is on correctly. if it still doen't comeup, try another monitor.

Pc Seems to be dead wont load bios post moust doesnt work or keyboard or monitor


I have the same problem, the CPU fan spins, keyboard lights blink, no start up screen, or bios.
But, when I push a few times on the pc reset button, then the CPU fan is becoming still, the keyboard light are out and I can start the computer again in a normal way.
Can this one be a temporally solution for you too? Do you have any suggestion about?
I guess it can be an electricity dysfunction of a wrong fixed cable.

Continuous Beeping, new PC


Hi.
Continues short beeps... means a short OR no power OR loose card OR system board.
Test it without the keyboard and mouse too. Just the Processor with heatsink, motherboard, memory and Video card.
Now add the keyboard, no mouse yet.
Check also the voltage of the CMOS Battery it should be 3V.

keep me posted for the result... count also the beeps.
