    The power light start out green then after about a second gives one long orange flash followed by three short orange flashes. The problem occurred in a similar way to the post to which this question is attached in that the computer was moved several thousand miles. It sort of started up with something on the monitor but would not bot in the normal way. I thought is might be the small lithium battery and replaced it. No joy. I removed and replaced the RAM still not working other than the flashing power button. Suggestions please?

If the Monitor Power is flashing then there is no data signal reachign it from your CPU.If you are bale to, open the CPU, remove the memory chip RAM and re insert it. Be careful not to disturb anything els and ensure the memory is properly reinserted. If you are in doubt get someone qualified to do it for you

Take a look behind the computer. If there is more than one monitor port, try plugging the monitor into the other one. Also, certain monitor cards are notorious for not staying in the slot if you move the plug from the monitor around, or even unscrew it. My best bet is that if you open the case (turn off and pull the power plug first, then touch the frame to release static, you'll see that the back of the card is pulled up a little, exposing the connectors on the bottom. Pull the card all of the way out and reseat it into the slot. If the card was not connected before it should be now. Good luck.

My computer turns on, i can hear it, but the monitor displays "no signal"


Because you are getting no signal on monitor, The first check would be the VGA cable! Do you have a spare to test with?

I have an AOpen monitor with an Intel PC. I moved my computer and when I finished plugging everything back in, the monitor says "No Signal Detected" I checked the plug several times, unplugging...


check to see if you were using a separate video card, you may be plugging monitor cable in the motherboard socket instead of the video card socket.

The computer won't turn on


You could be having any of several problems.

First double check to make sure no cords came loose - you may even want to unplug and replug the power cable both out of the computer and the wall.

If you do not have a loose cord, listen closely when you attempt to turn the computer on - is it making any noise? Do any lights come on? If not, you likely have a bad power supply.

If the computer does come to life, just no reaction on the screen, make sure your monitor is plugged in and turned on, and try unplugging and replugging the cord connecting the computer and the monitor.

If this still does not get it, you may be dealing with either a graphics card or monitor problem. If you have an alternate plug for the monitor to go - try that, or if you have a different monitor to use, try that.

This should either greatly narrow down or fix the problem for you.

When i turn on it goes start to pc entering power saving mode


Are you sure it isn't the monitor entering powersave mode?
An unhooked monitor (especially flatscreen DELLs ) will go into powersave mode if it isn't getting a signal but is getting power.

First unplug and then replug your monitor. Both ends of the cord, the end in the back of the monitor (if it comes out at all) and the end that plugs into the computer.(unplug it from the wall first)

Reboot computer.

If that fails...(and you do have a video card)

Unplug everything from the computer, open the box, ground yourself by touching the metal frame of the computer case and reseat your video card....you may have to undo one screw to get it out.
DON'T drop the screw into the case!

Put it all back together and try again.

If that all fails Boot Windows (windows right?) into safe mode and change the power settings for the monitor...perhaps something got changed or broken by an update.

If that fails....

Get Linux.

Computer wont detect monitors


hi kathy, please
give some more details:
does the monitor switch on without the computer? (press the menu button to access the menu for contrast, colour etc... to find out)
if yes, good.else get another one with vga plug( 9 pins), not the new HDMI...
the machine is like 10 yrs old,
now replug, turn on machine and wait if it does give you a boot screen

if not the graphics card might be broke and must be replaced.

- try to get an older graphics card (AGP)
plus drivers suiting the operation system
(like win2000/ win xp home)
u want to install (you'll need an original installation cd of that windows version,
as well) at ebay or in computer store or ask some tech freaks u know
if they do have left over one.

then you'll have to remove the old one...

if you got it:

switch off the machine, unplug all cables,
unscrew the chassis, remove old card carefully from slot, put in the 'new' one
reassamble everything, replug and turn it on.

it could work now...
when facing the windows installation, even if ti is win 98, please post another request on fixya.
hope i was of a help

NO POWER AT ALL!


Does the power supply have its own power switch?

It is located next to where the power wire plugs into the back of the PC.

No power, power supply & motherboard green light blinking


I had the same exact problem for the same exact reason. Plug the power cable into the back. Open up the side of the case and unplug all the wires that the power supply plugs into. The motherboard, harddrive, cd & dvd drives, everything. wait about 10 minutes and plug them back in, plugging the BIG cable that connects to the motherboard back in LAST. This will make the light go from blinking to solid. I think it is a safety? to protect the motherboard from damage.
