    i have connected all the hardware together (graphics card hard drive etc)but when i flick the power on from the socket, the fans run but nothing comes on the screen. the monitor light does not even switch from orange to green. it stays green. i've tried all the "F" keys. i'vetried taking it appart and putting it back together again.

  • sahaibs Jun 16, 2008

    i've tried this

  • sahaibs Jun 16, 2008

    yeah it's showing signal cable disconnected

  • sahaibs Jun 16, 2008

    i've checked if everthing is tightly fixed including the ram what you said, but i don't think it's the cable because it works on my dell pc

  • sahaibs Jun 16, 2008

    OK. thank you very much for your help. i will get a new graphics card and see if it works.

  • sahaibs Jun 17, 2008

    i've tried adding a new graphics card but it's till the same (no screen picture). i don't think it's the processor because i've tried it in another computer and it works and boots up to windows xp like normal.

This occurs mostly due to the the RAM which might not be plugged in properly.. remove the RAM, clean the base and plug it again.. mostly this causes this no display prob

    Another check here:
    remove the monitor's cable from cpu... i mean remove the monitor output from CPU and see if you get the "NO signal " display in monitor and let me know you get it or not


  • Viv Vek
    Viv Vek Jun 16, 2008

    hmmm. then its surely CPU connection prob...
    it may be the faulty cable that connects CPU and monitor...

    or surely mother board video output thats faulty...

    THese are the other two possibilities and i hope you checked RAM slot plug in properly..


  • Viv Vek
    Viv Vek Jun 16, 2008

    then its mostly the output from mother board that is faulty.. smoetimes there is capacitor or some stuff that may be faulty in the mother board circuit... that may cause that output socket to monitor to become ineefective...

    but this is the final step in the fault order..

    i suggest you add some other graphics card attach to *********** board and try taking output from that instead of the normal CPU socket you are now using to connect monitor.


  • Viv Vek
    Viv Vek Jun 17, 2008

    /.. this is the final thing to do..

    check if your monitor displays when connected to another computer...

    and if it is ok then, you have problem in mother board ... probably near ram slot circuit or near the video output circuitry

Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.


Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty


If its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail.


Even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error.


Make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free.


Restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard


Check the VGA cable connection running from the computer to the monitor.

This cable must be completely inserted into both VGA connection ports, otherwise the video signal is not going to reach the display.


Disconnect the VGA cable from the computer and monitor, then look at the metal connectors on both ends.

If you are missing connection pins, the video signal is not going to transfer between hardware correctly.


To fix this problem, you must obtain a new VGA cable (at any computer or electronics store) to send the video signal.


Examine the power connection on the monitor.

If the monitor is not receiving power, it is not going to turn on.


Turn off the monitor for a few minutes, then power it back on.

Like other computer hardware, the monitor may not initially turn on correctly.


Move the mouse and press the "Enter" key on the computer keyboard.

If the computer is in sleep mode, the monitor is going to appear as if it does not have any display.



Hope this helps.

Hello, i have a dell inspiron 530 and when i turn it on, all you hear is the fan spinning and it doesnt stop. Nothing comes up on the screen and i've checked all the parts and everything seems fine....


Hello-

Welcome to FixYa, the world's largest product support community.

Most of the time if a Desktop computer turns on but you see nothing on the screen,
It may be an issue w/ the monitor or it's cable connection.

Please verify that the monitor cable is connected to the correct port. By default the Dell™ Inspiron™ 530 only comes w/ a VGA monitor port (built-in graphics adapter) at the back unless you installed a discrete graphics adapter on the computer.

If the monitor is connected to the correct port then you might consider running a monitor Power-on Self Test (P.O.S.T).

How to do a Monitor Power-on Self Test (P.O.S.T)
1. Unplug the monitor's data cable, this is the cable that goes to the back of your computer tower.
If you are using an old monitor most likely you have a VGA monitor. Unplug the VGA cable.
2. Make sure the monitor's power cable is plugged in.
3. Turn the computer on.

Acer desktop mouse,keyboard not functioning, monitor also not wor


If there is no display on the monitor, then your computer is not sending a video signal to the monitor.
This could be caused by a bad video card or some other hardware problem. I would open the case and disconnect all the devices (hard drive, CD, etc. Leave only the CPU, memory, and video connected. You could leave the keyboard and mouse connected too.
If your computer then starts, you can start to add devices (after turning the computer off) one at a time.
If this doesn't work, then you are looking at replacing the motherboard or just the video card if that is possible.

Without tools or other spare components/computers, how to troubleshoot ''dead'' Dell Dimension 4500? No beeps/fan, etc. Have taken off front cover and switch seems okay mechanically. Small green light on...


With case open, and power ON...
locate the two "power" pins that were connected to the power button cable that is on the front cover.
Find them and tempoarily "short" them with a metal thingy, like a paperclip, taking care not to touch any other components. If it starts or produces a beeping code, then put it all back together and make sure the power pins are properly connected.

If it doesn't work, then perhaps the 12 volt side of the power supply is out. The mobo LED is powered by the 5 volt side of the PS.

The 12 Volt side powers heavy things, like the hard drive motor, fans, cd drives, etc.
the 5 volt side if for the data bus or circuits.

The power supply may have several "legs" of cables. If so, use only one set to see if the system works; then the other.

I hope this helps and it works!

When I press the power button to turn the computer on, nothing is displayed on the LCD screen. Power light, Hard Drive light, and Battery Light all appear normally. I hear the fan blowing internally and...


Check the resolution of the screen by right clicking on an empty part of the screen and choosing properties. Go to settings and make the resolution 1078 x 768 and hit apply and ok. There are instances when the resolution will change from a software update etc. that is not supported by the monitor or graphics card.

Computer turns on but does not boot windows, no bios screen


As you seem to not be a total novice with electronics, I would suggest you try unplugging everything with in the computer apart from the big plastic (Molex) connector from the power supply.

So unplug hard drive, cd/dvd drive, all pci cards, monitor and any memory.

PLEASE MAKE SURE THE PC IS OFF WHEN DOING THIS AND TURN OFF AT THE MAINS>

Turn your pc back on, you will hear a beep, nothing to worry about, its because you have nothing connected yet.

One by one start to connect the components back in the unit.

All this is doing is fault finding to see if its hardware related.

might be worth connecting your hard drive 1 at a time if you have more than 1 but the one with your operating system needs to go in first.

Add the ram 1 stick at a time aswell incase it the memory thats gone faulty.

Just remember to be careful with static if you can..


Check your graphics card aswell if you have added one:

Everything that I have read so far points to a graphics card failure..

My computer does not boot


No bios no post and no power lights on disk drives means hardware problem.

Either call a technician or try the following if you feel you can do it yourself, beware , there is always risk of damaging your PC on DIY.

unplug the computer, open PC and remove all plugs and internal and external devices, leaving only a minimal set of devices.

Start the motherboard with only Power adapter , one RAM module, and video card and screen connected. Unplug all disks and external devices, remove all pci cards.

If it still does not start take it to a repair shop, you may need to replace power supply, motherboard or ram.
