Asus p5lp-le no display


If it seems like the computer completed the boot process but the screen is blank, try the steps below.

The problem will either be the monitor or the video card inside the computer. Connect another monitor to the computer to isolate the problem. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays and works ok, then your original monitor is bad and the video card is good. If the Borrowed monitor does not work then the video card inside the computer is bad.

If the computer did not complete the boot process then try the steps below.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the computer is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.

Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Acer ax3400g does not boot and light blinks twice


Either your memory, lcd monitor or the video card is bad.

Check the Memory by steps below:

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.
I'm thinking that it might be your monitor because if the monitor was working and the video card was bad, you would get a No Signal message appearing on your screen.
Try another monitor on the computer. Borrow a monitor from a friend, family member, neighbor or co-worker and see if it works. If it does then your monitor needs to be replaced. If it does not work, then you've got a video card issue.

Check Video Card below:
If nothing ever posts to the screen then more than likely your video card is bad. Go purchase a Video Card that will fit into one of your open PCI Slots.

My monitor doesnt come on i have model x163 what driver do i need


You don't need a driver for a monitor. It displays the signal that the Video Card sends to it. Check the power cable and monitor video cable at the monitor and at the computer. Disconnect these cables and then reconnect them and tighten the thumbscrews to secure the connection. If you have an onboard video card, you may have a problem with your motherboard, RAM, Processor, Harddrive or Video Card that is preventing the computer from turning on. If you use a PCI, PCI-Express, AGP, etc. video card, check to make sure is it securely seated in it's slot. Also check the power cables going to the video card (if any) and the monitor cable connected to the video card. Else you may have a failed video card, or a problem with your motherboard, RAM, Processor, Harddrive or Video Card that is preventing the computer from turning on.

Plug in monitor and light on monitor turns yellow unplug it says no signal so basically nothing coming from computer or something


Please read entire solution before beginning:

If your computer sounds like it's booting fine but you receive no video it's most likely one of two things.
-First, if at all possible, check another monitor hooked to your computer to be sure it is the computer and not the monitor. If it is the monitor, do not attempt to fix it, simply get a new. Attempting to fix a monitor or a power supply can kill you.
-Secondly, if the monitor is confirmed to be a good unit, then you will need to replace your video card.
-Depending on the model of your computer you may have built in video from *********** board or a video card. If you have a built in video card, simply buying and inserting a new video card (Be sure to open up your machine first and find out what slots you have open for cards to make your decision on what is best to buy within the limits of your technology.) Inserting the new card will supersede the old video card at which point you may get a crappy looking screen until you install the drivers that are specific to your model.
-If you have a card already, try moving the card to another open slot (or make one by temporarily removing your dial up modem or sound card, ect.) and test to see if it's the card or the slot. If it's the slot you'll have to prioritize what you want in your machine unless you want to buy a whole new motherboard. If the it's the card and not the slot then remove the card and replace it with a new one of your choice again according to the open slots and what you want to spend and then install the drivers for your new video card. Thank you and I hope this helps.

Monitors won't work with Gateway Desktop


Do you see anything on the monitor at all when you boot up? If not, then the graphics card or onboard video is bad. If you have onboard video, then you just need to purchase a graphics card that will go into an available graphics slot inside your PC. If you have a graphics card already in there, then it will need to be replaced. If you can see the boot up screen but stops displaying video when you go into windows, then the resolution is set outside of your monitors capabilities; you will need to boot into safe mode, then reset the resolution to 800 x 600 and reboot; then you can set it to perform within your monitor's capability.

It sounds like Windows might be loading a bad driver for your main PCI (assuming it's PCI) slot. Try plugging your monitor into the motherboard instead of the video card. Try re-installing your graphics card driver to the latest version, you can download these drivers through the company's website and looking for your video card's model. After re-installing the drivers, shut down your computer. Put your videocard in it's main slot and plug the monitor to it. This should do the trick.

Gateway E-4200, Pentium III, Win XP, Nothing Showing On Monitor


The beeps are usually an error code meaning either the RAM or video card has went bad or are not properly seated. Leaving it out as you did could have caused the parts to come unseated when you moved the unit. Try reseating the RAM & video card and then retry booting. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

This can be caused by:

1.The monitor is not connected properly.
2. Bad hardware

Verify that the monitor is properly connected in the back of the monitor as well as to the back of the computer.

If the connections are OK it means that monitor or the video card is probably damaged. To test which component is dameged connect a different monitor to your computer or connect your monitor to a different computer.

If the other monitor works on your computer it means that your monitor is bad and if your monitor works on another computer it means that you probably have a damaged video card.

or

The solution to your problem is probably not the monitor, follow these steps:
1. Connect and boot your computer with 2 different monitors.
2. If it does'nt work with either of them the problem is from another computer component.
Posible Problems:
1. Your video card may be damaged or moved from it's slot.
2. Your proccessor may be damaged.
Posible solutions:
1. If you have computer hardware knowledge open the case
2. Remove the Video card.
3. Insert it back or insert another video card from a friend.(if it works with your friends card, obviously the video card is the problem)
4. Restart your computer and see if it works.
Now if it does'nt work after that you will have to replace your proccessor with one that works, from a friend, because you say your computer boots but if your monitor doesn't work you don't know for sure if it boots corectly.
The steps above are only for people with hardware knowledge, if that is not your case you should contact a computer service.

Computer boots up but no video display.


If it has onboard video and you've added a video card, sometimes you need to disable the onboard video in the BIOS as it won't send output to both when they are there. I would try a different monitor and eliminate that as a possibility also.
