NO DISPLAY on screen but processor fan is work


If it seems like the computer booted up all the way except the screen is blank.

If so try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok and works, then the video card inside the computer is good, but the original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does not work, then the video card inside the computer is bad.

If it does not seem like the computer booted up all the way try the steps below.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the computer?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the computer and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoever when you press the power button.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.

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.

Maybe your power supply is bad. Sometimes there is enough power to make the power light or some other lights come on but not enough power to make the fan turn on or hard drive spin.

HP Pavilion a1230n had bad power supply I changed it out for a better one of the same make and model. Now when it turns on I can hear the hard drive spinning and the fans running but it beeps every few...


If the beeping is coming from the power supply, that typically means that you are pulling too much wattage. I would recommend trying a higher wattage power supply. The video card is one of the lowest things on the computer's list of things to keep running at all costs, because even if your video card flickers off, you won't lose data. Before getting another new power supply though, I would ensure that your video cables are properly plugged into your video card and your monitor. To be sure that they are snug simply screw them in so that they don't wiggle at all when you pull on them.

Most laptops use beep codes to isolate startup problems . You may hear something like beep beep-beep or a combination
The beeps tell you why it's not starting ... if you hear the sounds then the manufacturers web site will tell you what the code you are getting means

Monitor does not light up. Computer has power.


Did you hear a sound beeping. If you can hear a sound beeping it is a RAM problem. But if there is no sound beeping that is a processor problem. Remove the processor and clean make sure that the processor fan is spinning so that it will control the temperature of the CPU to avoid overheating.

Alienware Aurora Desktop does not boot, has no HD activity


If the activity light on the front of the tower is not glowing than it can be an issue with the power supply of the PC. Try to open the tower and try to reseat the Power supply cables and check.
You can also try to Reseat the RAM (memory) sticks. If you have 2 Memory stick you can just try to boot the pc with the help of one stick and vice versa. If still the issue persist you can try to do a test on the Motherboard. Simply take out the Memory cards and power on the pc . if you hear a beeping noise than the Motherboard is fine and if you dont hear a beeping noise that it is a faulty Motherboard.

No video after replacing chip fan


Try a different video-card -- a "no-spin" fan and "no-video" implies a dead video-card (or at least a video-card that is not "seated' properly).

Check that the PC-speaker leads are connected to the motherboard, so that you could hear any "beep" codes. There should be one "beep" to indicate 'OK', or multiple "beeps" (bad RAM, no video-card detected).

The desktop won't reboot. The power light stays yellow. I hear a fan running, but the monitor says no signal.


If your fan runs and the hard drive spins up, then you have a video card problem.
I'd do this: Disconnect everything inside the case but the CPU, memory, and video. Now try to boot. Also observe the fan on the CPU--does it spin?
If this fails, then your video has probably gone bad. Also--does your computer usually give you a "beep" when it starts up? If so, is it giving you a beep now? If not, you're failing the hardware startup test (POST).
So, your problem may be the video card. If your video is part of the motherboard, then you need to replace the motherboard.
