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.

Gateway GT5040 Graphics Card


This model Gateway desktop computer has a built-in video card.
Connect the monitor to the Gateway motherboard video port and the boot up and go into the BIOS and select disable the built-in video.
Shut down then connect the monitor to the 8800GTX video card and boot up the Gateway computer. The video should then appear in the monitor.

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.

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.

Computer "turns on" i hear four to five beeps, but the monitor gets no signal. a friend gave me the computer, only once did i see it boot up fully but it froze up so i had to restart it and it wont work....


Without knowing the exact frequency/length of the beeps my first guess would be a bad stick of ram or a bad video card. If there is more than one stick of ram in the computer try it with one of the sticks pulled, pulling each stick until it does boot. if it doesnt, try pulling the video card. If you have on board video as well as a card, you can try it with just the on board and no video card. If not, borrow a vid card from someone. Doesnt have to be anything special, it can even be one of the old 4 MB PCI cards... just for diag. If that doesn't fix it, try pulling out any other cards that may be in it. Modem, sound, etc. etc.

and finally, here is a link to all the bios error codes for Gateway computers to help with further trouble shooting.

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.
