Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

No video Hi this is ken again, I tried everything the board seems to be booting up I tried a different video board out of my computer that I knew was working with my screen just to make sure and this video card went in the PCI slots and I tried it in all three or four slots and nothing on the screen. The monitor actually knows that the cable is connected it just goes into sleep mode while the rest of the computer is running I can see all the lights come on the keyboard the dvd and cd drives and the 3 1/2 drive also lights up I just cant seem to find the bios. it just won't come up on the screen. I jump the bios pin and I even took out the battery for 5 minutes and checked it with a meter. If you have any other suggestions I sure could use the help I hate to buy a new board and cpu chip without knowing for sure thank you for all your help still trying

Ok fine i think there exists some problem in the cable connecting from the CPU to the monitor just try removing that & inserting it again ....

if the same problem persists then there may be some problem in the port of the video card just take tester & test is there power supply or not ....

if there is no power supply then some of the capacitor on the video card might have burned out due to this ports will not be working ....

if there is power supply then there will be one IC(integrated circuit ) on the motherboard just near by the AGP or PCI express slot (i think in your motherboard there are 3 IC s near there)
in those 3 IC s if some IC goes means also you will not get the display ...

(the video must be inserted to the PCI express slot or AGP slot only) you must not insert it on PCI slots ...
you make a difference of PCI or AGP slot as this will be only 1 or 2 on every motherboard & it will be smaller in size than the PCI slots & there will be colour difference(may be the PCI slots will be white colour & AGP or PCI express slot in black or brown colour it depends on the motherboard)
check on which slot you have inserted it & insert it correctly if you inserted in some other slots ...

remove the video & insert it again & try check the cables the cable may be loose contact ...

any doubts you can reply me

thank you

Since you have tried everything and seems you know your way around the hard ware, I would not write any precautions. That said, the only thing you missed in your question is the CPU. You can try taking it out, look for the buildup dust + cpu glue (this could look like mud). Try to clean off these with tissue paper. Apply new CPU glue (this you can find from IT hardware store/ radio shack) between the CPU and the heatsink (not too much). Put the CPU back in the socket, Plug everything back on and switch on. See what happen. If it does not work you are about to buy another CPU. Worse, mother board + CPU. Sorry mate. Baseball bat option is not recommended. :)

Hi there,

If your computer works fine with an onboard video, it is possible that your motherboard is not getting much power. The agp video card gets power from the motherboard. I suggest using a different power supply.

Hey, i have a gateway gm 5472. when i try to boot the computer up, firstly, i have no video or sound, the led power light does not come on, but the fams run. what could it be


unfortunately, this sounds like you may have some dead hardware, try unplugging everything from the motherboard, and only leave the cpu, one stick of ram, and plug the monitor into the on board port (remove the video card).
Now try to boot the pc.
If you have no luck, try the ram in a different slot, or try a different stick of ram.
If you still have no luck, try the cpu in another motherboard to find out if it is faulty.

If you can get your motherboard to boot with one stick of ram and the cpu in place, turn it off and start adding components one by one, booting up each time to find out which piece of hardware is causing the failure.

I think you really need to boot from a boot disk (windows xp - vista - 7) for your operating system - and attempt a repair from there. Your computers have different motherboards and parts.. windows installed drivers for them are not close enough.

I have had success in xp by doing this: before removing drive from old computer - you go into device manager and remove everything - drives, video card, mother board last and leave keyboard and mouse .. so you can shut it down .. then install into new machine and it finds most everything and then you install your drivers there.

Good luck,
Bill

T2682 emachine running fine video lite went yellow & HD also


The first thing you should do is remove the video card and try to boot the PC using the onboard video (video on the Motherboard) and see if that solves the problem. If it does, try putting the video card back in in a DIFFERENT PCI slot and try it again. Sometimes Windows loses its marbles about cards inserted into PCI slots. My nieces eMachine loses its marbles over the Wireless LAN card about once a year, so I just move it to a different slot (swap it with the phone modem card). If that makes it flaky again, try updating the video card drivers. If it doesn't help, your video card is shot.

If it isn't the video card, try taking out one memory chip at a time and booting with the first one in. If that doesn't do it, swap the memory chip with the other one and try booting it again. If needed, replace bad chips....

After that, it is probably the power supply or the MB itself. Swap out the power supply first. If it is not the power supply, then it is probably the MB, and you are SOL.

Computer boots up but no video display.


If it has onboard video and you've added a video card, sometimes you need to disable the onboard video in the BIOS as it won't send output to both when they are there. I would try a different monitor and eliminate that as a possibility also.
