Dell inspiron 530 desktop won't boot, fan is running, no signal on monitor


It sounds like either your monitor or video card inside the computer is bad.

If the monitor is showing the "No Input Signal" message then the video card inside the computer is bad. The monitor is ok otherwise it would not be able to display the No Input Signal message.

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.

Hooked up a monitor and im not getting any picture. i just purchased the computer second hand today. i tried a second working monitor and still no pic. any ideas?..


Assuming that your monitors are good, if nothing is shown on the monitor, that means it does not receive any signal from the computer (or CPU). When you bought it, did they show you the computer and monitor are in good working condition (that means Windows desk top screen comes up on the monitor if it is a PC). If everything was OK when they showed you, but when you took it home, it does not any more, then maybe something became loose while transportation.

Make sure that when you turn the computer on, you hear the fan on the power supply and inside the computer running, and there should be some lights in front of the computer . If you do not hear anything nor see any lights in front of the computer then that is the reason nothing comes up on monitor. If it is the case, you may want to remove the cover of the computer and physically inspect inside the computer to see if anything becomes loose while transportation.

Just some ideas for you to work on. Good luck!

Dell monitor blank. nothing appears on screen. light is blinking by minitor power button, but nothing at all on screen. I hooked up to my laptop, still nothing. Checked power/ tried new power cable. No...


Make sure you set up your laptop to display to a second screen. Depending on your Operating system, go to your display properties and go to the settings tab. Then click on the second monitor and enable it.

I CANT GET MY MONITOR TO TURN ON


It could be the Monitor, the VGA adapter, or the PC itself. If you power on the monitor without anything connected to it, do you ever see anything on the display?

If not, it is probably the Monitor. If yes, it is likely the vga adapter and/or PC.

Blank screen


Hi,
Disconnect the monitor , from the computer, switch the monitor on , if you have some kind of Dell self test box running on the screen. The monitor is OK . The problem can be with the video card or resolution settings.

Also, try connectin the old monitor you had hooked up with the system to check ,if you see anything

Thanks

Presario SR1810NX

what monitor.? name and model... vast exist... no all work.
test the monitor first on known good PC that is 1st 1st.
does the Monitor (its button) OSD screens work,, if not monitor is toasted (good power in) if monitor is 2001 relic, some have hidden inside, power saver clock (turn it off , using OSD screens)

no it's not your bios, like the www, myth loves to repeat, ad nausum
here is the correct mess order.
But BIOS screens are the 1st GOAL always,,,, your not there yet.

1: test the monitor first, on other PCs when sure its good move it to
the Presario SR1810NX (and a good known monitor)
2: turn the Presario SR1810NX , on, then see if all fans run
that means SKINS off, omg, the fans are packed in lint , omg2, the CPU fins on its heat sink are packed, bad. (a yearly event)
A CPU can overheat fast, if not able to stay cool.....
CPUs go slower or even halt if the they see massive heat rise.
(built in self preservation mode)

all fans must run and flow air, as the designer wanted. for sure.
then make sure the fan in the PSU runs, if yes, good. if not you lost 12vdc to the fan, bad PSU.

PC sounds to be working, yes?? what do you hear now? a key fact?
3:
push the CD/DVD eject button if it can not eject the PSU is dead.
there are more steps. lots more.
Even the HP service manual tells you how to test the PSU, read that?

I have just set up new desktop Acer. Error message: No input signal.


check the website for drivers. But it seems to me that there is another problem most computer boot up no matter what screen is hook up. have you tried any other monitors ? If you have and the work im not sure what your issue is but i would say that most likely if another monitor works that it is the monitor but if none of them work it is a graphic card issue. If you could let me know what you are running and i can help more i.e what window's and what type of graphics card you are using
