    When you start your pc do you hear a beep or a series of beeps?



    How are you sure it is not the video card/driver?

    Try removing all cards and devices but the video card and the ram and see if it has any video output. If so then add devices one at a time until you loose it again. That should help you find the bad device/card

I just got an old HP Pavillion a335w, and it seems to work fine, but even with a new video card I can't get any thing to display on the screen. I have seen it for a few seconds, but then it goes blank on...


I have a Compaq that came with this board and a celeron 1.8 or 2.0 I believe. The fastest P4 that will run is a Intel Northwood 2.8 Ghtz 400 FSB nothing ELSE! Northwood 2.8 is the fastest 400 FSB, the boards chipset won't run anything faster than 400 FSB. Mine is running, Win 7 the Northwood P4 2.8 with 2 gigs ram, 160 gig HD and a 256 video card for over 5 years (minus win 7, had XP before with no issues. Good for light gaming, web surfing and MS office! Add a Zotac 512 MB PCI or Sparkle Video card and you can handle most more medium gaiming out today! My cards have HDMI and DVI output. I highly recommend it!

Computer comes on. desktop flashes as in startup but then displays "no signal". red light flashing in front of computer before pressing power button


this problem is always caused most times when the following things happens to the system:
1. The VGA (Visual Display Adapter) is bad
2. RAM (Random Access Memory is BAD or needs to be cleaned ) i.e Memory
3. Finally Processor is Bad.
if any of the above things are bad please get a substitute, i mean another to replace them with so as to know what exactly is wrong with the system.

Please Rae me as soon as you get this message.

My HP Pavillion Elite m9150f desktop (Vista Home


Hi,

You have nothing to worry about as this is normal operations. All the computer is doing is checking drives and reading any disks that maybe in the drive.
If there is no disk in the drive the LED indicator light will still come on but should resume Windows quicker.


Regards.
