After powering on monitor says no sync


I've almost the same problem. When the system turns on the monitor doesn't sync. After a variable trials with down/up the sync is enabled and the computer starts.A very clear event occurs : when the monitor can''t sync ( and system doesn't boot)you can hear very clear a high fan rotation. When I look/hear in the system the Isuspect the cpu fan. The system boots ( monitor syncs) when the fan rotationgoes from high to low. So the system hangs on an internal check on the rotation speed of the cpu fan.I've googled a lot , but until now doesn't find an answer . Possibilties which I think about : replace cpu fan , clean cpu fun ( but it looks clean).I cannot measure the fan rotation speed when the system is hanging. At normal rotation all info can retrieved witth the program cpu-z.Did you already have a solution ?

My averatec will not turn on


Open it again and make sure you connect all the devices and such ..It seam to be like a clear case of a disconnected cable ..If the system boot up ..and seam to run ..try to see if the vga secondary monitor brings anything to a screen ..if it does it means you messed up with the monitor connections ..cause you changed the hard disk ..you don't have a operation system to boot into and try to make an idea..but its a start ..
Other things to check is the fan connections and cables ..
If the screen is totally blank I think is like I said just a bad connection to the monitor or a damaged cable in the process of opening it .In any other case you would have at least a warning on screen even without hard disk it should boot to BIOS ..

My monitor samsung 2330 keeps saying check digital signal cable and I've put the cords all in the same way I had them before and now this screen keeps popping up


If you already check your connections and still no answer from what you're doing, do these steps:
  1. check for any beep codes
  2. remove and reinsert your RAM to another memory slot, if it works you have a problem with your RAM, you'll need to buy a new RAM that is compatible with your motherboard
  3. if you here a 1 short beep, that means it already start the booting sequence of your computer but you don't see any boot screen and still the out of range error. You have a defective graphic card.
  4. Is your monitor is a LCD type? if your answer is yes that means your monitor is not compatible with your old graphic card, buy a new graphic card that is compatible with your motherboard and to your LCD monitor. Because old graphic cards or onboard vga cannot hold much more pixels than newer ones that's why you have an out of range error

My friend karen press the power button, thre is no power... there blinking lights on the back of the computer near the fan power ...


Do you hear the harddrive start up? When you push the power button (or switch on the back) do the lights go out? If you hear fan running and hard drive start up then the computer itself might be on but the monitor isn't. Check the power to the monitor, the connection between monitor and computer to make sure they are all on and connected.

If you don' t hear the fan running then you have other problems. Any blinking lights would indicate something is getting power. I'm assuming the computer was working before the power button was pushed... If the monitor is actually working, you could hook up another monitor to check too then you have other problems but need more info to know what that could be.

would need to know the answer to the above questions as well as if it was working before, what was done, what changed between it working and this problem. Also what age the machine etc.

When i start the system the fan runs in high speed and the system not booting, i have tried with replacing RAM, SMPS still then the problem persist


The fan you hear when the the computer start, is the power supply fan, the system not booting up mean you should check the cable which connect the monitor to the computer If the connection it proper then you should check the video card you can do this by try using another monitor or replace the video card because if its faulty the computer will never boot.

Signal has gone


If the monitor comes on and displays a message like "no input signal" or something similar, it's working properly but there is nothing coming from the computer. People often think that the computer is working and the monitor is at fault, when in fact the computer isn't starting up.

When you turn on the computer, do you hear the normal sounds of the power supply fan running and the hard drive spinning? Most computers will give a beep when they turn on and the motherboard finishes some startup checks. Do you hear that? Do you ever hear the normal startup sounds that mean Windows is actually running?

If you are convinced the computer is starting and booting into Windows, I would suggest you borrow a known good monitor to use as a test. If it works, that obviously means yours is bad. In most cases there's nothing you can do to repair a monitor yourself beyond checking for loose connections, bent pins in the signal cable plug, or a damaged cable.

If a known good monitor still has no image, the computer is at fault. Either the video card or integrated video isn't working, or the computer isn't actually starting up. In any case, that's where you would need to start looking for the cause.

Hope this helps you along the way to solving the problem. Thanks fo using Fixya!

Problem with powering the monitor up. It just flicks off.


The operating system would not stop it from powering on.
It should power on even if disconnected from a computer.
You are probably in need of having the powerboard redone. Possibly a failing inverter.
If you know how to take it apart and can get some pictures to me at bammbamm@ptd.net , I may be able to see the problem.

Gateway GT5228 booting problem


"Also after I try to turn it on after a couple of unsuccessful tries, it actually boots and the machine works fine". This maybe cause by the hardware problem. And it usually caused by the motherboard. Changing the motherboard unit may solve the problem. But make sure you've already done the basic test on all of your hardware before changing it with a new one.

Computer not recognizing moniter


Resolution set too high for display.

Attach TUBE monitor, Start Windows, change resolution to 1024x768 (MAX) and then hit APPLY/OK.

Also check refresh rate, it is listed in hertz (hz) in advanced settings. Should be 70-72khz not faster than either.

Shut down PC, Connect LCD, you should have a decent picture.
