New Graphics card wont work

With the PSU on, there's one red LED lit on the mobo, powering on the machine adds a blue one to the mix is this correct? Graphics card gives green light on back, indicating proper power. I know the monitor works, I took it from another machine I have, and I've tried switching memory configs and just one stick (2G). I've also cleared the CMOS several times. Have also tried a PCI graphics card, still nothing on the screen.

What is wrong with my computer?


Is the monitor new? Because some monitors need to warm-up a little bit. Have you tried to remove video card and/or mother board and reinsert? If that doesn't work, try the video card in another PC, If it works there, then the video card itself is probably not the problem. (recommended). And those beeps (3-3-3-1) mean "Erase F2 prompt", but I don't know exactly what that means. This is all I know for now.

Keeps telling me no signal


The motherboard is not telling you there is no signal, the monitor is..
In this order:

  1. Test the connection from graphics card to monitor, try a different monitor to eliminate this from the issues.
  2. If other monitor works, the old one is causing the problems
  3. If new monitor does not work:
  • Check the graphics card is seated properly, if possible, test with another graphics card, if this works, the issue is with the graphics card
  • If this does not work, check the fan on the cpu, is it spinning? If not, make sure the fan is connected to the motherboard
  • If the fan is spinning, remove all the ram, reboot, you should get a series of beeps, make note of these and repost them (computer will not boot)
  • If you get NO beeps with ram removed, the CPU or motherboard are possibly dead, if possible, replace CPU with known working one and retest with and without ram in, make sure you have thermal grease on the CPU>heatsink. Replace the Ram (or one module)
  • If you get a single beep and the motherboard powers the monitor, the CPU was your issue
  • If you get no beeps, confirmed death of motherboard.
Possible other solutions: Remove CMOS battery, leave for 1 minute and then replace, see if it boots
Check the power switch from the computer front panel is not sticking

Hello I have a problem, my motherboard g31-m7 no video, i picked up the battery, but the problem still there, how to solve this problem?


I don't know who recommended a CMOS battery to fix your graphics, but this = no.

1) You have checked the monitor cable, correct? If the monitor cable is removable, replace it with a known to be good one, for a test.
If the monitor cable is not removable, use a known to be good monitor, and cable for a test.

2) If you are using the Integrated Graphics of the motherboard, (OnBoard graphics), then the next test is to install a graphics card. If you have graphics now, your OnBoard (Integrated) graphics chipset is bad.

3) I find most of the time, (Like around 80% or more) that the Power Supply is bad.
Enough power to light LED lights, spin fans, (Or spin a few times, and stop), but NOT enough power to turn the Processor on.

A bad Power Supply is one of the leading causes of computer failure, right next to computer is dirty inside.

A) ALL of the LED lights being on at once, will use less than 1 Watt of power.

B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

C) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power. Depends on what Processor it is.

Here you can see a CPU Support list for the Biostar G31-M7-TE motherboard, and the wattage of the different CPU's,

http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/cpu_support.php?S_ID=363

Again, you may have a bad Power Supply.
Enough power to light LED lights, and spin fans, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

No Processor operating, No computer.
No computer operating, No video signal.
(No Signal)

Do you have a KNOWN to be good, compatible power supply to use for a test unit?

Components aren't powering up


Sounds like the board is not receiving power. Check that the power connectors from the psu to the motherboard are securely in place, or else try another psu

Working fine until psu packed in, replaced psu, begins power up


The PSU dying may have destroyed the motherboard also. Try removing all interface cards and disconnecting all drives to make sure.

No video input signal No power to disk drives


If you mean the PSU, have you checked the cables from the PSU are actually plugged in correctly to the drives? (it's been known for folk to plug them in the wrong way). With regard to the monitor, check your graphics card (if not onboard) is still correctly plugged into the board (remove and re-seat it), and that the monitors cable is correctly and securely plugged into the VGA port.

K8NGM2 Mother Wont Power Up


I've seen situations similar to yours several times and they've always been a bad CPU.  Since you tried a new video card it's not that, I would suggest a new CPU.  Check on ebay, you can usually find used one's on there.
