No display but the computer turns on.


could be an issue with the graphics controller or with the monitor. first, verify if the monitor is actually working. try it on another computer or video source. if it works, make sure that you have a working video cable and check to make sure the video input source (dvi, vga, rgb, hdmi.. etc) selected on your monitor is the correct one that you are using. if you have ruled out the monitor, video source and cables, you can then test if another monitor will work with the computer. if same thing happens, meaning nothing on display even the manufacturer or BIOS screen does not show up when you turn on the computer, it is most likely the video controller. you may either get the motherboard replaced or install an add-in video card if the integrated video controller only has one video connector.

This model Gateway desktop computer has a built-in video card.
Connect the monitor to the Gateway motherboard video port and the boot up and go into the BIOS and select disable the built-in video.
Shut down then connect the monitor to the 8800GTX video card and boot up the Gateway computer. The video should then appear in the monitor.

My compaq fs7600 monitor wont turn on


Hook a spare monitor to the computer, if no change! the Video Graphics Card is suspect usually built into the motherboard. But if spare shows picture, the problem lies in the HP monitor, as a last resort change the video cord from the computer to the monitor "if possible" to rule out something simple.

I updated my BIOS on an HP Pavilion a430n now it wont boot up, the computer starts with the fans running on high. There isn't a boot screen or anything just blank. Help!


Sorry for some bad news, but unless you know someone who would know how to unbrick your motherboard from a bad bios flash.. its gone. They recently came out with new boards that have protected firmware, if anything like this were to happen it would auto reflash the original bios to the board. Hope this helps :-S

Dell computer monitor wont come on when I turn


When you turn on most dell monitors they come on with a yellow light, then turn green when the monitor and video source synch. If your light is not turning from yellow to green, your monitor is either dead or not getting a signal from the video source it's plugged into. Verify in your BIOS settings that you have selected to output video through an installed card and not from the motherboard source. If the BIOS settings are correct, your monitor has died. If the light is turning green after you turn the computer on, press the menu button on the monitor and adjust the brightness/contrast until you have a picture. If you don't see anything when the menu button is pressed, then again your monitor is likely dead.

Monitor comes on only at the welcome screen


Sounds like a video card issue. But just to rule it out, try plugging the computer into a different monitor.

If it shows video, then it has something to do with your current monitor.

If it gives you the same problem, I would reseat the video card (if it's not embedded).

As a last ditch option, you could reset the bios on the motherboard via a reset button or pins.

My tower wont turn off and monitor says no input signal and keyboard doesnt work


Do you have two video outputs on your PC ie. one on the motherboard adn a separately installed card maybe? If you do you need to set the BIOS so that it uses the AGP/PCIE video card and not the 'onboard'. Try the onbopard vodeo card first to see if you get a signal there.

If you do NOT have two video outputs, and you can not see a signal then you may have a prblem wiht your monitor itself. Is this a known working monitor to start with?

Black screen


Ensure that the power button is pressed and the monitor is plugged in correctly. If ok, then the installation was stopped while installing your video drivers. If possible use another monitor to re-load the xp operating system until completed. Once the video monitor drivers are loaded the monitor will work again. Let me know if you have any questions.

Computer turns on, but there is no display on monitor.


The builtin video card is probably bad. Yes, you can get a PCI video card.
