Computer will not turn light on but screen not lighting up.

Hello jaysmith362,
Your computer problem has 3 different cause:
1. VGA cable is not plug-in properly into the computer
2. Your System memory is not properly inserted.
3. BIOS problem

To solve your problem it.
1. Please ensure that your VGA is properly inserted into your VGA port of the computer. Or if you got an Videocard see to it that it is plug-in to your videocard.
2. You have to remove your system memory then return it properly into your memory slot.
3. Or by BIOS resetting, in your motherboard you will see an CMOS reset in it, try to remove the jumper then insert it in the other portion of it (it always has an 3 pins or 4 pins in the BIOS reset, if the BIOS jumper is located in the 1 and 2 pins try to insert it in the 3 and 4 pins). then restart your computer then turn it off after 3 seconds. Then bring it back the BIOS jumper into normal that is 1 and 2 pins.

I hope it will solve your problem
Thanks for using FIXYA...;-)

All the lights come on when I switch on my HP Pavillion dv9600 but the screen is blank.

DO THIS FIRST - Perform a hard reset If a PC suddenly fails to boot properly, you should perform a hard reset as the first procedure.
  1. Disconnect all peripheral devices and remove all USB devices and media cards. You want to test the computer not the accessories!
  2. Disconnect the AC power adapter, remove the battery, and then press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds .
  3. Reconnect the AC power adapter (but do not connect the battery), Press the Power button, Look for glowing LEDs near caps lock and num lock keys, and Listen for sounds of a disk drive and fan turning.
Actions to take after performing hard reset If no error message is displayed:

If a text error message is displayed, see Troubleshooting Error Messages on a Black Screen During Startup or Boot c02076104.jpg

Black Screen with No Error Messages Connect an external monitor c02076105.gif If there is a problem with the LCD display's back light or a corrupted graphics driver, the display may appear blank but the notebook may be displaying information. Attach an external monitor to test the display. If the image displays on the external monitor, there may be a graphics driver conflict. To resolve this, turn on the computer and press f8 key, then select Enable low-resolution video . If the image displays on the LCD display in low resolution, you can download and install the latest drivers for your specific graphics driver. If there is an image on the external monitor but the notebook display remains black, contact HP for technical assistance. Disconnect all peripherals and repeat the hard reset Even though users are instructed to disconnect all peripheral devices from the notebook when doing a hard reset , some devices are often overlooked. c02069237.gif Double-check that all devices are disconnected including: external keyboard and mouse (wired or wireless), USB connected external drives and devices, thumb drives and flash drives, network storage devices, PC card, SD memory cards, express card, eSata connections, firewire or similar devices, printer, scanner, camera, port replicator, or docking station, any CD/DVD from the optical disc drive, and any media from the multi-card reader.B

It sounds like you need to change a BIOS setting. I don't have this MoBo, but on others there is a toggle to make the integrated graphics primary or secondary. You would need to change it to secondary. On this card this should happen automatically - so check BIOS settings and that your new card is properly seated in the slot.

Installing External Graphics Cards
If you want to install a 3rd party external graphics card instead of using the onboard graphics, follow these steps:
  1. Install the 3rd party external graphics card, following the installation instructions that come with the card.
  2. Integrated graphics is automatically turned off.

Basically, display card, RAM and processor are the ones affecting the display. IF trying different memory and video card doesnot help. Try changing the different processor. Thanx with regards Sajan

2. Remove the memory stick from the DIMM slots.
3. Remove also the graphic card if you have it in your motherboard.
4. Find the bios jumper settings in your motherboard, refer it to your motherboard manual to do this.
5. Reset the bios and turn it back again to normal.
6. Plug in all the remove hardware.(video-card and memory stick)
7. Close the computer case.
8. Power on the computer. Take note: Be sure you that all the cords you have remove is properly inserted back like the computer power cords,mouse,keyboard,vga and etc.

I have a p4 computer with u8668-d mother moard, it has no dislay.what am i supposed to do? cpu fans are running,,i cheched the RAM and its functining i solve it?

First try re-seating the memory boards. Try removing all memory boards except for dimm1 to test for bad memory chip, then replace dimm1 with other one(s) just to be sure. If problem persists, try reseating the video card and if still no go, remove all other add-in cards (except video card) and try to boot. If ok, add the cards back one at a time to determine the problem device. I had similar problem and cleared up with a new video card and another time it was a poorly seated modem card. Sometimes you also need to reset the BIOS by unplugging the power, and placing the jumper cap for your BIOS Reset or CMOS Clear (usually marked on motherboard) from 1-2 pins to 2-3 for a few seconds then return to pins 1-2 before pc restart. (pin nos. could be reversed depending on the model).

No video at all. Soyo dragon 2 SY-P4I865PE Plus

It may be your RAM. Try using only one RAM card at a time and keep switching them until you figure out which one it is. Otherwise, you could try a PCI graphics card, but you would have to change the settings in the BIOS so it knows to use the PCI card instead of the AGP.

You can also check to make sure the processor is in it's socket correctly.

Finally, if you can, try the components with another motherboard to see if it is the motherboard.

I hope this helps :)

No monitor display

Hi, first verify motherboard BIOS jumpers if it's on right position, if the board has an integrated video card, remove the pci e video carnd and test with the inside one.
If you have more than one DDR memory, use them one by one.
Do this with all components desconected, like hard disk, dvd-cd rom...
If no video display, try with another power supply and all components desconected.
If you got no video the motherboard could be damaged.

P4m800-m7 problem

Hi there
Remove the video card from the machine and connect the monitor to the on-board video, then reset the CMOS 3d40258.jpg, you will see a plastic jumper like the one in the picture near the battery, move it to the other position and power up the PC (nothing should happen which is good) then put the jumper back in the original position and power the PC up again. Hopefully the problem will be sorted and the problem was the video card.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

No Video (Intel D945gnt) from boot

I'm having the same problem with my ECS K7S5A ver 3.1. The problem is that that I reset my FSB to an unsupported frequency using a 3rd party BIOS.

Unfortunately this is not the solution you're after, yet probably the only option. To fix the problem you're going to have to contact the manufacturer of the motherboard and let them know that you need a new BIOS ROM chip. You'll have to send the board to them and they will replace the chip for you. Depending on if you're still under warranty or not there may be a fee involved.

Sorry to see it happen to someone else, it is quite devastating.
