Question about Computers & Internet

No video output

I am putting together a new computer...nothing fancy. When everything is assembled (whether in or out of the case) I get no video display at all. The fans spin up, the leds on the motherboard power on, and the leds in the RAM come on.

It is:
ASUS M3A motherboard
AMD 5400+ processor
2 GB Crucial DDR2 PC6400
ASUS EAH3650 512MB Radeon PCI Express 2.0 x16 video card
WD 500GB hard drive

    Since it didn't work as advertised, I followed ASUS technical instructions and moved it from the chassis to a smooth non-conductive desktop. I setup the basic computer there (without a speaker) and got the same results.

    I talked to an ASUS representative this morning and he told me either the motherboard or processor is defective. I have requested an RMA from

    Thanks for your help.

Do you get a single beep from the POST at start-up? That signifies that the internal check is OK.

I have new Dyson dc65. The handle keeps falling apart. I have tried putting it together several times. What am I missing?

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty with your new DC65's handle assembly. In case you haven't already followed each of the steps shown in our Getting Started guide, you might like to do so just to ensure everything has been correctly assembled:

Make sure that when you attach the handle to the main body, you push it firmly into place until you hear an audible click from the catch which secures it.

If you're confident you've followed the video correctly and continue to have issues with the handle, our experts will be happy to provide further assistance and help you resolve this. You can reach us directly by calling 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Installed the motherboard in a new case, it worked fine in the previous case but now i can't get any video output from either the motherboard or the video card. Its almost all brand new hardware, I've...

remove the video card, then see if you can get video from the mainboard video output. You did get a processor that supports that hopefully, If that works you need to boot into the bios and set the PCIe video to have priority over the onboard video. Turn off the PC and install your card. See if that works and good luck.

I have no sound I install the driver but there is no sound.

Try to install the driver in the case where the card effected gently.So keep it up on that case where it can continue to work.

Replaced C18 and C36, but problem persists

It sounds like power supply failure. Can you measure the output voltage of the power supply? It should have +5v and +/-12v. Measure with black lead of multimeter on the metal case, and red lead on the power supply output connector.

Clutch will not disengage

Chances are the clutch lever assembly (where the cable attaches to the gearbox) has gotten out of position on the Axle push lever (the shaft that goes into the side cover and the lever is attached to). The shaft is splined for the lever to attach. Re-fit the lever on the shaft and try it now. If the splines are stripped then you may need to drill a 1/8" hole through the lever and shaft then insert a 1/8" cold roll split pin to anchor the two together.

The bottom of the axle shaft fits in the side cover and actuates a lever to separate the clutch plates. This mechanism could be bad.
If that is the case then get the entire COVER ASSEMBLY part number 5NY-15490-00. The assembly comes with a new shaft.

The clutch cover mount bolts should be 8 to 10 ft. lbs. This is not a factor in your problem.

Please rate this answer. Thanks Geoffgiggy!

Connecting DVD Player to TV

If the TV doesn't have video/audio input jacks (I don't think this model does) and the DVD player has only video/audio outputs and no RF (channel 3 or 4) output, then you will need an RF converter. They're only about $15 or so. They need to be plugged into an electric outlet, so you may want to get a surge protected outlet strip (if you don't already have one) to plug everything into. Then just hook up the DVD's A/V outputs to the converter and tell Mom to put the TV on channel 3 and make some popcorn.

DS Lite repair worked, but only until I put it back together

You may have some pressure somewhere that it shouldn't be. The electrical tape takes up space, and could be taking space that is not there when the console is assembled. Or you keep knocking a connection loose when you put it together.

Try it while it's on. If the console crashes or dies at any point, whatever step you were in the middle of is probably causing that problem. Just make sure not to get anything in it while you were, and don't touch any electrical parts, in case you accidentally short something.

Bios problem

Are you using the ON BOARD video output? or are you using an external video card?
Was the computer working and you installed SOFTWARE to enhance something?

I will assume the you know how to get into the BIOS setup to tell your cpu the diffenrnt configurations?!!
1st)Replace the VGA video card with anything...does not have to be FANCY, FANCE. and reboot...same problem? not the same problem?
2nd) take everything out of the desktop except memory and boot up.
continue adding hardware (one at a time) and reboot. If the message comes up..AFTER you've installed a hardware....that is the problem.
