After installing new ATI HD4670 video card I boot system hear no beeps computer powers on but screen is black


Hello,
I assume you have the driver for the new video card if not you can download it from ATI website.
Try booting the computer in the safe mode and remove the driver of the old card, restart the computer and install the driver for your new video card.
You can also put the old video card back and remove its driver then install the new video card and driver.
Best of luck to you.

Hi,

I would venture that "shows winfast on monitor" indicates the type of Video Card that your PC is using. Thereafter it should go to POST showing the motherboard, BIOS, memory count and others.

Since as you posted, after Winfast nothing follows, I can only suspect that you have a motherboard problem or at least a BIOS corruption.

Please post back the brand and model of your computer or at least what motherboard.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My computer has a RAMDDR2 but would not start up,can u help me diagnose and troubleshoot?


First make sure you haven't installed too much memory. The computer uses DDR 2 memory but what is the maximum amount it can use. If it can only support 2mb and you have 4 installed the computer will read that as an error during boot up. Second, disconnect the Keyboard and as the computer is booting access the BIOS. disable the stop on all errors setting so it can get past not sensing the keyboard and see if that boots. If the computer boots after that the problem is a fault in your keyboard like a stuck key which will give you the constant beep. If you see the spalsh or BIOS screens then the problem is not the Video Card. If you don't get those screens double check and make sure the Video card is properly installed with nothing installed in a slot directly below it as this sometimes causes conflicts.

I have recently built a new PC with an Asus P8H61-M and upon turning the PC on I am recieving no Visual on either of my monitors


Hello

If this is the first time to turn you on your computer check first the power supply of your computer if connected to their proper connector. Check your memory if clip properly in there memory slot. If you are using Video Card check it if it is properly connected to the connector. Then connect your VGA connector at the back of your computer when you have video card connect the VGA Cable of you monitor to the video card VGA output if does not have connect it with the onboard VGA output. Then press the power switch if the unit is still no visual in monitor try to search or hear a beeping sound in your computer by its on board buzzer. Find which beep you hear from your computer.

No Beep- No Power, Loose Card, or Short.
One Short Beep- Normal Post,, Computer is OK.
2 Short Beep- POST error, review screen for error code
Continues Beep- No power, Loose Card, or Short
Repeating Short Beep- No Power Loose Card or Short
One Long And Short Beep- Motherboard Issue
One Long and Two Short Beep- Video (mono/CGA Display Circuitry) Issue.
One long and three short beep- Video (EGA) Display Circuitry
Three Long Beep- Keyboard/ Keyboard Card Error
One Beep, Blank or Incorrect Display -Video Display Circuitry

Hope this help with your problem. Keep on touch in fixya

I have mb-msi2000-815e pro ver1, it is constantly beeping. change the memories,agp,, but it still continues.what could be wrong/


1.Your first step is to look at the information about the meaning of the beeping codes. Beep codes are important and useful tools when troubleshooting booting issues. When you turn on your computer system, it is called POST (Power On Self Test).

2.No beep is usually a power problem that can be related to the power supply, motherboard or both. Always check your battery power before thinking there is a bigger problem.

3.One beep is a normal POST. That means everything is fine.

Two, Three, or Four short beeps are normally about the memory of the machine. If there is a problem with one of your memory chips you should get beeps of different combinations in this area. If you get two or three short beeps, one or both of your memory chips could be in trouble.

4.Five beeps point toward motherboard or CPU problems. Make sure your memory and video card are seated properly. Try removing them and putting them back in, only if you are comfortable with computers.

Six, seven and eight beeps.


Eight beeps indicate problems with your video card. Six or Seven are CPU, or a bad chip on the motherboard.


Nine beeps mean the BIOS is bad. Replace the motherboard.

Ten beeps means the problem is in the CMOS. All chips need to be replaced.

5.Eleven beeps are related in the cache of the mother board and this means that the motherboard needs replaced.

One long and three short beeps mean that it is related to a loose memory chip. Try reseating it.

One long and eight short beeps means that the video cards needs reseated.

6.I hope that this list of beep codes will help settle the panic you feel when your computer is sick. If all fails, Then you inform me

I have a Compaq Cq60-104TU laptop with 2GB RAM and a 250GB hard disk. Windows XP service pack 3 is installed in it. Off late, whenever I turn on the laptop, I get this loud constant beeps. There are around...


Computers beeps are caused by the power supply, system board, graphics/video card or keyboard.
Reboot your system with out the keyboard if it no longer beeps your problem is a couple of stuck keys on the keyboard.
If the beeping continues remove your graphics card and reboot your system.
If your pc still beeps the it is either your power supply or the system board.

Constant beep and wont boot up


that means you have a hardware failure, if it continuously beeps that means the gfx card ( video card) is not being recognized by the motherboard, but also it could be your ram. And Did you overclock your pc? If so, you failed at the over clock and you need to reset bios to defaults by taking out the lithium battery while its disconected from power. Let pc site for 20 min with no power and battery, once 20 min pass put battery back in and power up pc. Still no boot and constant beep make sure all cards are fully seated ( video card, sound card ect. ) and make sure the power cables are fully inserted as well. hopefully no hardware has to be replaced
