    Had no video signal (power switch remains amber not green) , no POST or lights on the USB keyboard or mouse

    Lights on front panel and HDD spins up ok.

    Replaced the MOBO (Dell MOBO E210882) - and powersupply.

    Tried to boot with no RAM, no USB connections.

    I have checked all connections.

    Still have the same problem of no video.

    I would appreciate anyones thoughts.

    I haven´t signal to the video device.

    The LED from Hardisk, CD, Floppy, Keyboard and Mouse there´s work.

    But haven´t video. I tried to takeoff the video card and make it work with the integrated, but didn´t work. I even tried to reset the bios, but I´m not sure how to doit correctly, and I´ve read in this forum that this didn´t work.

    Thanks a lot.

    Please send me a reply to

    Sorry my bad English.

    I powered down my system before going on holidays. When I returned and powered up my video. Fans and HDD lights are working but no video. I tried both the VGA/DVI on card and VGA on MOBO. Still nothing. It did power up once to desktop and then just rebooted.

    I've tried another PS but to no avail.

    System suddenly doesn't post. No beep codes. Bios does a memory check, but that's all. Screen goes black.

Thanks a lot... I've find a solution.

Get a Win98 System diskette (command)
Get a BIOS diskette (get from the Intel site)

1. On the PC with the System diskette, wait until you can hear six beeps (I'm not sure about how many 'cause I don't count, but, you have to wait until there's no beeps)
2. Take off the System diskette and replace with the BIOS diskette
3. Reset
5. Wait until you can hear four beeps (same as 1)

And "Voilá" This works
I have to make a recommendation... Reinstall the Windows, 'cause my Windows run very, very, very slowly until I reinstall.

My motherboard is D865GBF Intel... I'm not sure that works for other MB

Looks like no one has a solution.

fgrocker: you cant reset the BIOS cause you cant get anything from the PC!

Unplug the ram for 30 minutes ( It can hold info for some time) just before you go to put it back in, clear the bios using the jumper or battery.
Then plug in the POWER chord and if it doesnt boot then, hit the ON button.
(this has worked for me before)

Laptop wont boot up, black screen, has power

You didn't post the Make, Model of Laptop or the OS you are using. I'll use a Win 7 solution. Boot the Laptop, open the Control Panel, select Power Options, set to High Performance, select Change Plan Settings, set SLEEP to Never, select Change Advanced Power settings, go through the settings , set SLEEP and Hibernate to Never, Power buttons and Lid to shut down. Always shut down and unplug your laptop when not in use to prevent damage from power surges and possible Fire hazard IF the battery malfunctions. A reboot every day will reset the computer.

EMachines eMD620 suddenly shutdown and not boot anymore

When this happened was the laptop overly hot? If the laptop's head got too high it could have shutdown to protect itself. It wouldn't boot until the heat had disparate. Sit you laptop aside for about 30 minutes and see if it will boot then. If it does you might want to check out a cool mat.

Acer aspire one power button comes on but screen doesn't come on.

1/ Take a close look at the display in bright light; can you see anything there? (If so then the CCFL (or its power supply) needs replacing on the display
2/ hook up an external monitor and see if that works (or at least if the light stays green on the monitor)
3/ Any boot beep? any "Windows sound"?
4/ try removing the battery and (using only external power) see if it starts.
4/ remove the battery AND the external supply, hold the power switch in at least 30 seconds. Hoojk it up again, try it.

Screens stay black, power lite is solid green

does it make the boot up sound? if so its a fault with your screen..can replace screens for £7.50 off ebay. try re- inserting ribbon cable for screen b4 buying new screen tho (could be that). if you can't hear bootup sound when powering up then something else wrong. maybe F1 or F2 fuse blown (test with a multi meter) look on youtube for tutorial

MX 6124 Gateway notebook screen stays black when powering up

Repaired! This sounde like a fuelty screen or screen inverter. To check this, connect to an external monitor, if the external works properly, then it's the screen or inverter. If the external doesn't work, let me know and we'll run the problem down to a more indepth (internal) trouble shoot.
