Monitor was in safe mode turned computor off and removed and replace ram. Monitor now flashing RV370 P N 113 A62801 106 BIOS not sure what to do now. to get computor booted back up


Hi...sounds like your video card has died on you. Do you have another video card lying around to swap out with the old and try?

When the video card is sending power to the monitor, the light will be green - if the light never turns from amber to green when the computer is booting, this means that the video card is not sending a signal to the monitor, probably because its toast.

I have a Lenovo Thinkcentre m57 6072-CTO. Every time I start a video from google news my computer beeps, my display freezes then goes black saying no connection check signal cable. The computer is still...


Your computer system is getting too hot.

When you don't run videos your computer is running in 2D mode, very little rendering is taking place therefore less heat output.

Then when you want to watch a video the graphics unit has to work hard and therefore produces heat. That heat needs to be effectively removed from the chassis in order for the computer system perform well.
Your computer may need a clean, remove all dust blocking air intake/exhaust areas.

Also go through my guide entitled How to install Graphics Drivers, Nvidia and AMD Radeon!!! as you may need better more efficient drivers for your graphics card.
Consult the manual in this regard for the graphics card model number or name!

The beeping either indicates overheating or low/unstable power to the computer system from the power supply!

Thanking you

My ibm thinkcentre desktop shut off will i was working and now will not boot up,i checked the back of the computer i have a steady green light and an steady orange light what can i do?


I think you may need to replace the power supply. According to lenovo, who have taken over the thinkcentre brand, if the normal power light and both the green and orange lights at the back are on then it means the power supply needs replacing. It seems that this the only time the orange light comes on.

Here's a link to a troubleshooting page, I suggest running through it first in case it's something simple which has been overlooked, and you can also see what the lights mean for yourself.

I hope this helps you out.

Hp pavillion 533w wont boot up green light on front comes on but thats it no fans coming on either


Hi ,

If the green light comes on on the front panel then it means the fan is spinning so what u can do is a self test for the monitor.Disconnect the vga cable from the back panel of the computer tower and then check if there is a message displayed on the monitor that should say check video signal or no inoput signal ,if there is no such message displayed then it means the monitor is a fault .If not then reset the memory card and then check .U can also run a test for the motherboard to do this u will have to remove the memory card and then turn the computer on if u hear long beeping noise it means the motherboard is fine .If u dont hear any sound then the mother board needs to be repaired or replaced...

all the best

Won't boot. Power light on, No Video Signal message


It's also possible that your operating system has become corrupted. See if there is enough time to boot into safe mode, or choose a boot option to go into the recovery partition.

Have you made any recent hardware or software modifications?

Pc wont read monitor


If you look at the monitor there will be an led light on the front that is always orange or yellow when the computer is off but still connected to the monitor. This led will turn green when the computer boots up, sometimes even showing a "no signal" display before boot. If you see the 'command line'  text during the boot process (video info, BIOS version, POST text, etc) then the monitor is being recognized by the computer. If that text goes away and the led goes back to orange then it is a driver or operating system problem. Pressing whatever key is prompted at the lower left of the display, if you have a display, like F1, F2, F10, Delete or whatever will get you to the setup program and all is good with the display/computer connection and a green light will stay on. If you never get that green led light then either the video card is bad or not seated properly

Powering up problems.


Try using another monitor that you know works. Then try another video card. The fans are running because the computer is running ---but the monitor is not. Green to Amber means monitor is not on.
A lot can go wrong with loose wires that shouldn't be loose.
But I would try this first.
