Your pc has just died and since you don't get any error beeps it means that it's a critical failure: it's either the power source or the motherboard.
Simple test to determine which: take out the power source completely off the case, plug it in the power cord, locate in the ATX power connector (the big, 20 pins one) the green wire then join it (a paper clip will do) to the black one(the ground) next to it: if the fan starts the the power source is basically on - test the rest of the voltages , the code for them is on the label.
If the power source is ok then the motherboard has failed, you will have to replace it.

It sounds like the card is bad. If it came with the computer, I suggest getting in contact with Dell.

The two beeps are a post error, most linked with a bad Video card. If it is still within the warranty period, it's best to get the part changed.

Thanks, Please Rate. :-)

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

Ibm xseries 235 eserver....all of a sudden stopped booting...it was set up through a kvm swtich, the kvm detects a signal and lights up the apprpriate port, yet nothing is displayed on the monitor....


Please expalin how you know "drives are good" (sic) As it would appear to me that this is indeed your problem? Unless as you say the video card has turned up it's toes. As you said the best way to check that is to enable the onboard Video and check, exactly what happens when you do that? Yes it will automatically use the video, it would install a generic video driver,and show video, are you sure the monitor is OK,have you swapped it out? Simply removing the Video card will automatically enable the onboard video, so you won't need to get inro BIOS. Check the RAM too, and remove any other cards in it.

Hp vs17 has white screen at boot. I have eliminated the chord from the tower and the tower works fine. I have audio, no video. Only a white blank screen. It does not blink or flicker. It just stays white....


There are three choices here...bad screen, bad connection, or bad video card, if the card is integrated onto the motherboard, then that part of the motherboard could be bad. If you have access to another monitor or a TV with a vga input, try the computer with another monitor. If you get a signal on that other monitor then you know you either had a bad connection with the other monitor or you lost the screen on the old one. Go back and reseat your video connections with the computer off. Don't ever remove or move cables to the monitor and video with the computer running...the screen can suffer permanent damage. If there is no signal on any monitor, then either you have a bad vga cord or your video graphics card had died.

No analog signal


Sounds like the graphics card is gone belly up. Try the monitor with another pc or just replace the graphics card.
Hope this helps

try this,
1.) unplug the system

3.) remove the mainboard battery(cmos battery)
4.) press the power button 5 times
5.) replace the battery
6.) replace the rams
7.) boot it up
8.) enter setup
9.) load defaults then save and exit

if that works then try putting back in the graphics cardm you may need to repeat steps 1 - 9 after installing the graphics card. and pls insure the monitor is connected to the graphics card.
