My proline notebook is not displaying even when plugged in to an external Monitor.


When you plug in an external monitor, try to hit the combination Ctrt + F10 (or F7..depends on what key is designed for it. The key usually has a box picture on it) to make sure that you toggle displays between the laptop and the external monitor.

But if you've already done this but still didnt get any display, you can now go ahead and reinsert the memory module/s (RAM) of your laptop. A faulty or dirty memory module usually causes the unit not to POST (Power on self test). If you have 2 memory modules, try to gently clean the contacts using a pencil eraser and insert them one by one.

However, if this step will not resolve the issue, you need to consult help from an experienced technician. The video card of your computer is surely dead in this case.

Hope this helps.

Hp g60t went into hibernation last friday it wouldn't come out of hibernation so i had to hold in the power button and shut down. laptop turns on but no video now the screen stays black. i tried a reset...

This issue could be due to presence of static charges or internal hardware malfunction of the notebook. To isolate the exact cause of the issue, perform the steps provided below.

Step 1: Hard Reset

To perform a hard reset, please follow the steps listed below:

1. Unplug the AC adapter from the notebook PC and remove from any port replicator or docking station.
2. Remove the battery from the notebook battery compartment.
3. Press and hold down the power button for about 20 seconds.
4. Insert the battery and plug the AC adapter back into the notebook PC.
5. Press the power button to turn the notebook PC back on.

This will discharge the static charges from the notebook. Now turn on the notebook and check for the issue. If the issue persists, then remove and reseat the memory modules of the notebook and check for the issue.

Step 2: Remove and Reseat the Memory Modules

You can refer the service manual provided below for information to remove and reseat the memory modules of the notebook.

Refer page no: 52 & 53
NOTE: PDF manuals require the Adobe Acrobat Reader for viewing and printing.
Further, if the issue persists after performing the above steps, then the issue could be due to hardware malfunction of the video card or defective LCD display screen of the notebook. Hence, I recommend you to connect an external monitor to the notebook and then check whether the display works fine on external monitor or not.

Step 3: External Monitor

You can follow the steps listed below to connect an external monitor to the notebook.

1. Turn off the notebook.
2. Connect the monitor cable from the external monitor to the monitor port on the rear of the computer.
3. Connect the monitor to a power source and turn it on.
4. Press the Power button to turn on the computer.

At this time, please follow the instructions mentioned below for switching the display to the external monitor:

The notebook's video card supports three modes. Built-in screen only; external video only; and both on simultaneously (mirrored). If you're not seeing the image on the desired device(s), the notebook's video card is probably in another mode. Press FN + F4 to cycle through the display options: Notebook display, External monitor, both.

If you press FN + F4 once, the external monitor will display & there will be no Notebook LCD display.
If you press FN + F4 twice, the external monitor will display & there will be some shading on the Notebook LCD.
If you press FN + F4 thrice, both Notebook LCD & external monitor will display.

If the issue persists on the external monitor, then this could be due to defective video card on the notebook. However, if the display on the external monitor is fine, then the issue is with the LCD display panel of the notebook. In either cases, the notebook requires a detailed onsite diagnosis by a service technician.

I believe the information provided would be helpful to isolate the issue with your notebook.

Pc boots but no display. tried a new video card, still wont work. ram or motherboard?

To start the troubleshooting,
Do one thing.
Clear the cmos.
To clear the cmos, remove the battery and the cmos jumper. You will see JCC on the mb and it is attached to pin 1&2
You can Short it to pin 2&3 or remove it completely.
Don't forget to remove the power-cord from the power supply while clearing the cmos. together with the cmos bat & jumper.
After that try a different ram and a different vga card.
At times dust get accumulated in the slot that prevent firm contact with the vga slot or the memory bank.
Use a clean paint-brush and blow away the dust on the card, the mem and also the slot in the mb.
Fix it firmly.
try this
If you need further assitance revert back
Good luck

Won't post, no beep. No display on monitor. Tried different AGP video card, different memory. I have unplugged everything but the AGP card and hard drive. The monitor works on a different computer so...

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

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!!

Descktop computer turns on, but no video

Hi, I'm assuming your motherboard has a built-in video card. Let's trying doing it by the numbers. 1. Remove all memories, cards, FDD, IDE or SATA cables from the motherboard. What should be left are only the power supply connector, the CPU + Heatsink & fan; 2. With the unit off & unplugged, pry/remove the 3V memory battery. Short the CMOS reset jumper. This is normally located very near the battery. If you can post brand/model of MB, we can probably point the exact location or you can go to the manufacturer's website and download the pdf file of the manual; 3. Leave it with no battery and the CMOS reset (not default) jumper in place. Give it a couple of minutes; 4. Re-insert the battery and remove the jumper from reset position and replace it back to default position (its original position); 5. Connect keyboard, power cord, monitor video cable (onboard video connector is below the printer port and beside the serial COM1 port) and; 6. Power up. Most cases you will have a series or combinations of beeps since there is no memory (and no video since the onboard video uses shared memory). Sometimes no beeps at all. Power off; 7. Install a single stick of memory. It would be a good idea to clean the edges/connector pins of the memory stick with the use of a pencil eraser. Further use a clean/new paintbruh to remove any other dirt. Use the same brush on the slot where the memory is to be placed. Seat the memory into one of the memory slots. Power up, there should now be a healthy pre-post beep (if you do not have an onboard video, a long beep will tell you that no video card present). If no beeps nor display in your monitor, power off, remove the memory and place it in the other memory slot and try again. If still a no go, try with another memory following the same sequence. 8. If still a no go, try with your videocard either in AGP or PCI-E slot as applicable; 9. If it works, you're set to re-install everything else; 10. If not, your motherboard and/or processor has to be replaced. Hope this works out for you. Good luck and pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
