Re: Montior does not come on when computer boots
Hi. If there is no display activity at all (i.e., no boot screen logo, etc.) then it could be a bad video card. If you do get the afore mentioned items, boot into Safe-mode by pressing the F8 key at startup. If Safe-mode shows Windows, then it could be a driver related problem with the operating system. This unit has the Integrated Intel GMA 3000 video card, which means its built into the motherboard and with this computer being a space-saving design, you would have to find a half-height video card as a replacement should the internal video card be bad. I am not sure which replacement card you can get because I do not know if there is a PCI slot of AGP slot open on that motherboard. If I am assuming correctly, I would say that you get a "welcome" screen initially, but when the computer boot into the operating system, you don't see that. Please let me know if this is incorrect.

Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact. Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.
There are several reason why a computer won't boot up. First you need to figure out if your Power Supply is working, if your not a computer expert, you can try another PSU to test. Or you can use a PSU tester to test if your PSU is still working. If not, clean and reseat your RAM, if you have 2 RAMs, remove each RAM then try 1 RAM at a time, and try to seat the RAM to different slot. If not luck, clean and reseat your graphics card. If you have a built-in video port, remove your graphics card. Still won't boot? try resetting the CMOS. This might fix the problem.

Do you mean that there is no display on the monitor? Do you hear a beeping sound during boot up ? If you can open you computer try to remove the RAM and try to clean it using a common eraser clean the part that has contact to the board. Try to reseat it again to the motherboard , your problem might be on your memory.
Try this step first and post again if problem is still there. Thank you.
If you heard a beep sounds it means there is a trouble with your memory (RAM) to fix this open your CPU cover, release your ram and try to clean up your RAM (golden color which will connect to the motherboard) using a pencil eraser, and try to remove the dust from the motherboard. After it cleans put again your RAM to the slots and please be careful to put it on right like it was before. Hope it helps Thank you for visiting FixYa
1. Find your windows recovery disc! not the windows installation disc. however you can use the installation disc to do a system repair...
2. turn on computer and insert the recovery disc/windows installation disc.
3. press depending on the computer F-10 or F-2 to enter the computer bios screen
4. Change boot options to boot from cd-rom...
5. Follow onscreen instructions :)
thats only applicable if you are able to access the Setup (bios screen) if not then i would suggest changing the jumper inside the computer.... and also check your ram slots to make sure there aint no looseness or dust. if there is looseness then just reseat them... if there is dust make sure your not wearing rubber soled shoes and remove the ram cards and use a pencil eraser to clean the gold teeth on the ram cards and then reinsert them into the computer... there are multiple reasons why your computer is doing this and this is just an educated guess so give it a try... you cant damage anything :)
3 beeps means you have a faulty or very dusty memory module.
You will need to open up the case and clean the interior out of dust. Remove the memory modules and clean the brass contacts and the slots the memory clips into. Then reseat the memory and try to boot the machine again. If you still have the same 3 beeps you will need new memory for the machine.
Check your harddrive connection again. If its ide check if you properly connect the interface cable to its pin1 maybe you reverse its connection. Then reseat your memory card. Or you should clean its edge connector(old ram) with soft eraser if ever you still use that.
If ever it still not boot up, try to boot up the unit with the old ram module only. If it boots up, try the new ram. If in the new ram module it doesn't boot up, it seems your new ram is incompatible.
Beeps generally point to RAM, this would also be why the monitor has no signal as the computer wouldn't be POSTing. I'd suggest reslotting the RAM and if this doesn't work then swap out the stick with a new one :)
