1 long beep is usually graphics card..
try booting to external monitor... connect your laptop using the serial port or by S-Video cable to a desktop monitor or similar..., then press FUNCTION and F5 to switch to the external monitor, if the laptops Screen is viewable on the external source.... then it is a bad video card...

Hi Powee,

It's definitly a memory issue. What you might wanna do, is open your CPU and take out the memory sticks from the memory slots. After this, try either blowing or vacumming (if you have one of em small PC vacumm cleaners) the slots whcih contained the memory sticks. Also, dont forget to blow off any dirt that might be on the memory stick(s) itself.

After this, just insert the memory stick(s) back into it's slot(s) and try to rebppt your computer again. Most of the time it should work. However, if you still face this issue, then it means that your memory itself is corrupt and you might need to buy a similar capacity memory altogether.

As a side note, if your computer comes from a manufacturer like dell or acer, you might wanna get them to look into the issue if it;s still under warranty (or even if it's not). Certain "branded" computers have their own way of functioning. Hope this helped.

A power outage cause dell server 1600sc to shut down & no display on the monitor


Hello here is the homepage.

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/ussoho1/Product/poweredge-1600sc

There should at least be a message on the monitor indicating there is no signal coming to the monitor. The first thought that comes to mind if all is connected would be that the power supply has failed.
And maybe the graphic card.

Call also the DELL support in your country they will be glad to help
and they probably know the fault.

Contact Us 1-877-671-3355

Good luck

Asus Monitor boes blank and comes back after power recycle


1. You can see images on the screen for a few minutes. That means there is nothing wrong with your computer.

2. When your screen goes blank, if you disconnect and then reconnect the monitor, it shows fine again for a few minutes before going blank (or dim) again. That means the problem is not with you video card.

3. It always shows the image after reconnection for exactly a few minutes before going blank again. yes? this means that there is nothing wrong with your cable.

Conclusion: Sorry, but you do not have many options. I bleieve that the problem is with your monitor that's going bad. Its far cheaper to get it replaced than to repair it.

LG LCD Monitor L1530S problems


Most screens will show nothing or go to power saving mode until the PC is turned on. The monitors need a signal in order to be 'active'.
From your description it could just as well be a problem with the PC rather than the monitor. The easiest way to find out is to connect another PC or laptop to the screen or connect another monitor to the PC unit.

Did you try pressing the Del key or F2 key when you turn on the unit to get into the Bios?
