There is a lot of cause of problem why there is no display. First you need to connect the speaker to the board to hear some beeping error. If you hear some beeping 3 times when you open the computer sometime s the problem is memory not inserted well or the memory slot need to clean for the dust. Also the video card slot or the video card connector need to clean. Try to clean the video card to rub the eraser to the connector to remove the corroded that cause of the poor connection of the memory and video card. If there is no sound beeping maybe your video card or memory is defected.

Pc won't boot


Can you get into the BIOS at all? Not sure what your motherboard is, but usually F1, ESC, DEL, or F10 get you to BIOS.

Without a diagnostics card, or built in diagnostics like some gaming or server boards have, the beeps may tell you what is wrong if you go to the manufacturer web site and look in your product manual.

If you can get to BIOS, some have a restore function to get you back to a different state, but even if that is not the case, you may be able to see something like a bad drive or memory chip being unrecognized that will identify the problem. If no to the BIOS or the BIOS was no help continue on:

At each step, if the same beeps happen, reconnect the device and move to next and reboot. Power off completely between steps and unplug the PSU.
1) Disconnect cd and hard drives, try to boot.
2) Remove memory and try to boot.
3) If motherboard has built in graphics, remove video card.
4) Lastly, remove everything one at a time till you get to the BIOS with no beeps. If nothing but your monitor is connected, and you still get the same beeps, the motherboard or CPU may be faulty.

If removing one item, ie the CD drive, allowed the PC to boot, then try a different cable, or IDE/SATA port. If memory removal allowed boot, then try one at a time in your main memory slot until you identify the bad module and replace it. If the motherboard boots with no VGA card, then that is a likely culprit, but switch to a higher power PSU and see if that allows you to boot. (some cards like the 6790 give messages to say you don't have enough juice, while the 4870 just makes the motherboard beep because no video device is attached technically)

Motherboards aren't the easiest to debug, but if you have patience, you will be able to eliminate all possibilities and identify the root cause of the problem.

I recently purchased the Palit GeForce 9800GT 1GB Green from Novatech. After trying to boot up my computer I realised that I needed a PSU with a 400W+, as mine is only 300W. I will be buying a new PSU...


Hi Nirvana,
According to the specs on the GeForce 9800GT specs it - Requires a NVIDIA HybridPower™- enabled motherboard

The specs on *********** board under graphics say: º Integrated Chrome9™ HC IGP
º Share Memory: Maximum up to 256MB

Nothing is said about it being a NVIDIA HybridPower enabled motherboard
So I would venture to say that it isn't compatible. But, before I gave up on it I would call NVIDIA and ask tech support to be sure. Their phone number is 408-486-2000
Hope that helps...

Is my mobo toast, or can I salvage it?


I've come across this quite often, and yes - the mobo is probably dead.
Just to make sure though,
Try another PSU,
If you have any cards in eg modem take those out and try booting.
Also try a different memory strip
If the board is faulty then I'm afraid the easiest option is new mobo.

IS the memory seated firmly?

New vid card? does it need power internally.

Most new high power vid cards need a power source usually a 4 prong plug in the back of the card. square shape plug.

Monitor (no signal) after replacing mother board and CPU


try only connect Monitor and keyboard, and check for booting (disconnect all the rest (HDD, CD DRIVE, Sound Card, Network Card, ....) then try connect one by one and always off to change hardware config.

If dont work with monitor and keyboard, try reset bios(jumper),check again, then replace memory modules (must be compatible to new motherboard), evan dont work, send back the motherboard for defective motherboard.

Ecs p4m800 m7 no display


On board video will likely be disabled if you plug in another video card.

Newer video cards require a connection from the power supply to provide additional power not available on the PCI bus to drive the GPU. It is possible that your 350W power supply does not have enough juice, or the rail is bad.

First guess, check the video card for a power connector. Second, check the power supply. Lastly, if you remove the PCI video card, onboard video will likely work again.

Good luck.

Having problems trying to get a Tyan i5000xt MB to allow the vid card to come up with a display


  1. If the MB has jumpers, you must make sure they match you CPU.
  2. Make sure you have the right memory modules and that they are installed correctly.
  3. Unplug all drive cables from the mother board (HD, CD, DVD, Etc) and then try to boot. If you see video, plug them back in one at a time.
Hope that helps...

I'm not getting a picture when I turn on the computer.


Ok. This may not have anything to do with your video card at all, as people keep suggesting.

There are two RAM slots on this board. How many sticks of memory are you using, what are the specs on them? And if you are using two, are they dual channel?

This board, I BELIEVE, requires dual channel memory. If you are using two different make in chips, or two different sizes, it may not boot. Also, since it requires dual channel memory, if you're only using one stick, you may have it in the wrong one (some ECS boards are like this). If that's the case, try switching the single stick to the other slot and see if it boots up then.
