Hi
First,try hooking it up to an external monitor if you have access to one.Unfortunately,we need video to start checking for what may be wrong.
Try the monitor and post back to let me know what happens,and if it shows on the external display we can start looking at potential problems and fixes.

Hp pavilion slimline s3100n boots up - fan on - monitor reads no video signal


The most common causes are:
  1. Loose video cable on either monitor or back of desktop
  2. Bad monitor (only way to test monitor is hook it up to another machine or hook up a known working monitor to your existing machine.
  3. Bad video card - this is less likely since most video cards are on board but if you have a different card, check to ensure it's seated properly on the motherboard.

I have no display even at start it doesn't turn on my monitor


Hi Anthony,
Does the PC actually start up? In other words do the front panel lights come on and can you see the power supply fan turn at the rear where you plug in your power cable?

If so, try removing the RAM memory from the motherboard, clean the connectors with some surgical spirits or anti-static spray, then replace the RAM firmly back in their slots and try turning on your PC again.

Let me know if you still have a problem after following this procedure.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

If you don't see power indicator turned on or neither listen to CPU fans working, maybe the power supply is failing now, you could claim your warranty again if it's into the valid period, you could also check that all cables of your computer are securely connected.

Without additonal information, it is difficult to offer specific suggestions, but:

Are the video connections to the computer/computer card and the monitor tight?

Is the monitor turned on? Sorry - I had to ask.

Do you have access to another monitor? Does it work on your computer?

Do you have a video card on a computer which has its own, built-in video card? If so try switching where you attach the video cable. Once I had to physically remove the seperate card, attach to the built in output and all worked well.

If you have access to a working computer, you can go to:

Verify your fans are for the CPU and case are moving. You can remove the Pc cover and turn on the Pc. Watch the cooling fan on top of your CPU heat sink, it should begin spinning when you turn on your PC. If it doesn't then with the PC unplugged, make sure the connector for the fan is seated properly. From behind the PC you should be able to feel the Power Supply cooling fan moving air. Either of these could cause your PC to over heat and shut down.

My HP Slimline s3100n pc crashed and will power on but nothing shows up on the screen. How do i fix this?


Are you able to enter the BIOS ? If no then it's a major hardware failure, most likely the motherboard. If yes then check that the hard disk is still recognized; if it is then reinstall (or Repair, if you are bold) Windows and try to identify the cause of the crash - start by testing the hard disk using HDTune.
