What indication do you have that the system is on?
Do you have any LEDs active on the front of the system box?

Also, your monitor should indicate whether you are receiving video sync signals from the system by changing LEDs or the color of one and possibly give you an on-screen notice that it is or isn't getting input.

If you disconnect the video cable from the back of the system box, most monitors will post a small notice on the screen that it is working but not getting any input.

Tip

Computer beeps


If you try to power on your computer and nothing happens but a bunch of beeps there is something you can do. The beeps actually mean something. To make sure you can hear the beeps check in the bios options. If there is an option for a silent boot you won't hear any beeps. If you hear one beep every time your computer starts then you don't have to worry about this.

If you want to check this setting refer to my other tip on how to enter bios and change boot settings.

If you try to boot your computer and nothing shows up on your monitor do these steps first.
1-Check all your cables in the back of the computer.
2-check your power source and power cord to the monitor
3-try another monitor if possible
4-If on a power bar try to turn off the power bar and reset the breaker

If you try to boot your computer and nothing happens and you hear beeps look at this website. The beeps you hear are actually telling you what is wrong. Look at the website by clocking on the link below and click on the computer beep codes link. If you want to scroll down past the link it will show you bios codes to enter the bios in your computer

My Acer M5640 desktop lately when start up, after the beep nothing appear on the screen, hv to turn off the power and try again, somtimes it will be ok, what's the problem?


As the computer gives the beep it shows it is working, it has pass the Power On Self Test.

Your problem is a loose connection, either at the Graphics card slot or on the monitor VGA ports.

Check the VGA ports at both the Graphics card and at the monitor. Also clean the RAM modules of dust and reinstall.

Take care!

Desktop: Gateway LX6810-01 PC will not power on. When I hit the Power button on the tower, a long continuous BEEP comes on and nothing appears on the monitor. After the BEEP, the On light (on tower)...


Thank you for using FixYa

I would try shutting down the computer in the normal way, and turning off the monitor.
Boot up and turn the monitor back on.
If it still doesn't work, then I would check the cables and power plugs and wall plugs.
Check the mouse and keyboard cable and any other cables plugged into the computer.
The next step requires a seperate monitor or laptop.
Try unplugging the monitor and pluging in another monitor. Most laptops have a common
VGA adaptor jack or even an Svideo jack.
If the other monitor does not work, Then take to a qualified technician for repair.
It could be your power supply in the computer or video controller.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.
