Computer boots but no display on monitor why?

Hello there,
my computer boots up the lights are showing and the motherboard says FF on it Meaning Fully Functional but when the computer is booting the keyboard lights dont come on and i cant hear the beep that it makes i have already checked the cpu, ram ,power supply and graphics card but i dont know what it is that doesnt let the monitor start.
when it doesnt start i have to turn it off then open the case and take 1 stick of ram out and put it back in then it turns on or sometimes i have too take the sound cable out of the sound card (Built into the motherboard) so now i am running out of ideas. some people are saying on the internet that it is my graphics card and some are saying the whole motherboard is dead but if the whole motherboard was dead then the computer wouldnt even start up or boot or anything.
what could it be

SOURCE: Problem with starting the computer

remove the ram and check for any dust deposits in the ram slot, if you replaced the same ram stick, it should be alright. If you need to you may need to reset the bios, by way of the JBAT 1 terminal CLRCLK, or CLRCMOS terminals or similair, so refer to your manual. Also remove all peripherals apart from the ram processor and hard drive and try again, if you have 2 ram sticks try one at a time

Obviously, this sounds like a video problem. Is this a new build? Any previous problems?

SOURCE: Bios reports incorrect memory speed

try to update the BIOS ! ... it may correct the problem ...

when using only one module at a time, doest it work on the correct speed 800Mhz ?!

the system will be working on the BIOS declared parameters, at 677 !

Also read all the indications in the motherboard user manual, regarding memory (supported brands, speed, slot allocation .... )

thought i hope the BIOS update will do the trick ...tell me if it worked ...

Most probably yes, if it started happening after you installed new RAM modules. There are to possibilities:

  • one or more of RAM modules is faulty and will need to be replaced or removed
  • the motherboard does not support this layout of the modules which means that you will have to remove 512 MB module
I suggest you remove one of 1 GB memory modules and see if it works. If it does, than put it back and remove the other 1 GB module. If it works again, than motherboard does not support having one 512 MB module and two 1 GB modules at the same time.

When my computer was power on then cpu was run but the monitor doesn't display ...

If the monitor did not display the CMOS messages as computer was booting then there is an issue either with the monitor or the video card/motherboard.
Is there a light on the monitor to show it has power to it?
Is the video cable connected securely at both ends?
If all above is true then suggest looking at video card.

I have HCL Ezeebee desktop computer when we boot the system monitor, keyboard, mouse blink for a while and monitor (HCL) show 'no signal' message, and keyboard num lock led not display mouse i

No signal at the monitor indicates (if you know the monitor is working ok) a failure of the graphics chip or graphics card, The lack of indicator light on the num lock LED and the lack of power to the mouse would indicate that there is a major issue with the motherboard.
you can try using another monitor to confirm the problem lies with the graphics, and in the case of the keyboard and mouse, swap them for a usb version, if they work, the Ps2 ports are probably damaged.
I'd be thinking of replacing the motherboard

I have this pc HP Presario uWave2 Socket462 Motherboard compaq presario 4000. The problem is that is doens't on, the cpu has the light in green but the monitor doesn't show anything, something if they...

alot of motherboards use shared memory for display meaning that if the memory cards lose connection no video.
take memory cards out of the computer and clean the gold contacts with pencil eraser and try rebooting the computer to see if you get video if not try 1 memory card at a time to see if there is a bad stick of ram causing it not to show video.

On my motherboard the counter shows FF what does it mean, and how can I fix the problem(my monitor doesn't switch on)

The FF on the board just means that the motherboard completed an attempt to boot. That's it. Very vague i know...but in every instance of the ff code the board had to be replaced. Error code 2D may indicate a video problem...ultimately we could never know what to expect with generic codes like that...As an engineer I I would go a step further and try disconnecting the hard drive to see if you get the computer to get to the BIOS which would indicate a failed drive or corrupt OS Otherwise you are probably correct in thinking you might have a video problem which is onboard and would still require a board replacement. But save yourself the trouble and get another computer which doesn't have motherboards in it from shut down companies. I'd be glad to explore your options with you.

Computer will not turn on. it is just "sparking" ie fans/lights/come on for split second and then everything goes off. on my evga motherboard there is a FF display. i have been troubleshooting easy things...

Not sure about the FF. If everything comes on and then powers off after only a split second, there is not time for the display to show anything. I'm suspecting it is indicating there is no signal.
The very first thing I would try on this computer is the power supply (assuming it's a desktop system).
A faulty power supply can act like this.
