Try takingnthe small battery out of it and put it back in after about 5 seconds.
There is a setting in BIOS which allows the computer to go back to whats it was like before incase of a power cut.

Have you tried reseating the memory stick on the computer? Open the case and move the memory around to see if that helps.

* check com cable all thru the video card socket,also check you video graphic card pci if its inserted properly,try to clean it first.

* might your pc is in Hibernate or Sleep mode

A power management mode that conserves power by powering down the system. In hibernate mode the current state of the system is saved to the hard drive, and the system will power down. When a user turns the system power back on, the saved information is read from the hard disk, restoring the last used settings. Hibernate mode is similar to sleep mode, however in sleep mode the power cannot be shut off.

go to control panel > power management and change or default the settings you wish.

Black Screen after installing new NVidia 9400GT


Put the old card back in, remove the old drivers and restart it in VGA mode.
You don't say what operating system you use, but XP & Vista you should be able to hit F8 before the windows splash screen to select VGA mode or Safe Mode.
Once you do that you should be able to put the new card in and start it in standard VGA mode then load the new drivers.

replug your cables and wirings inside your CPU, if your using a Video card and it goes power saving mode, use the on-board video card if you have, if you dont have try using another video card to isolate the problem.

Got BSOD on my XP computer and have traced it, I think, to the video card - getting "no input signal - going to power save". Would this prevent to computer from loading or going into safe mode?


Yes, a bad video card could prevent the computer from starting at all. Your monitor is going into power save mode because the computer isn't sending a video signal. This could be due to many things, power supply, memory, video card, processor. Try blowing all the dust from it and reseating all the components.
