My monitor won't start please help


Hi,
If a PC switches off the moment you plug in a screen its normally a indication of faulty VGA Card or damaged addon slot which is causing a short. Hard to say which of the 2 might be the cause only way to test is by installing other vga card and see if it still does the same.

There is no power in my PC. i change the power supply but still there is no power coming out. It looks like its all dead. I thought it is the power supply but it wasn't. Now my thinking maybe it is...


Disconnect everything from the mother board except the power supply. ie no ram, drives and any front panel cables including any sound/headphone jack sockets. All you should now have is the processor and vga to a monitor. If when shorting the power on terminals nothing still happens, remove the battery and wait 5 mins. Short the rtc jumper and see if it will start now. If nothing then motherboard is scrap.

I have a D946GZIS motherboard. It does not boot whenever i switch it on and press the power button. Also the power led is not glowing. What must be the problem..? pls help ..


Starting at the begining. The wall socket, the plug, the cable, the power socket on the SMPS at the back of your PC, the SMPS, the Output connectors from the SMPS to the motherboard. The power LED not glowing means that the power is not reaching the motherboard. Disconnect and reconnect the power connector on the motherboard. start. No start. Does the fan on the SMPS work? If yes then all components before the SMPS are doing fine. If no then most likely connection socket power cable to the SMPS may be the culprit. This has a lot of load on it. The PC and the monitor both take power from this socket. the answer to your problem lies in the answer to my question whether the fan starts in the SMPS or not. If yes then there is no output from the SMPS and the SMPS need to be given the due attention and if no then there is no power input to the SMPS and various cables and socketc need that attention. In case you need to and can remove and open the SMPS look for bulged or burst capacitors. If found, replace them. Those round cylindrical components.

Whenever i start my pc fan's start's even monitor start's imediately but 'no signle' massage appears on screen & monitor screen got off


Do you get any "Beep" sound coming from the internal speaker, if so is it just one straight beep or numerous beeps.

If it's one straight beep then this indicates the PC has passed it's POST (Power On Self Test), if it's a series of beeps, some long, some short, it means there is some problem inside the computer, like loose graphics card, RAM, CPU, cable, etc. The beep sequence should be in your motherboard manual under beep codes. That will give you a hint as to what to look for next.

If it is one straight beep and PC passes POST then check your monitor connections, and monitor, it could be that the power saving/signal detection pin is either not connected properly, or damaged.

If you don't have the internal speaker connected (normally in the bottom or front of the case), you need to connect this to find out what is going on.

If you need to connect it you should look at your motherboard manual for where to connect it, normally if you look at the motherboard you will see a load of thin cables coming from the front of the case going onto the motherboard at a point, the 4 pins on the bank of pins at the end are normally the PC speaker (you also get a blank pin between them and the Power Switch pin), although check your manual first, or see if you can see the SPK connection on the motherboard (normally Gigabyte boards are very well marked for this, and colour coded.)

My PC is connected to UPS.Whenever I switch on my UPSthe PC start


On the mother board at the front are 2 rows of pins to which wires are attached, going to switch(power) and the manual reset and the LED's. Usually the first 2 sets of wires--pairs of Green&White and red/black&white are for power and reset. Once u pull out the jumper-like attachments u will be able to see whats written on them. Isolate the power & reset wires. Remove them fron the pins on the motherboard. Switch on ur UPS and by simply shorting 2 pins, starts the PC. Now that u have identified the power pins, put them back after cleaning the dust,etc. If the PC behaves as before but works perfectly when the power switch connections are opened & PC works normally after just touching the 2 oins, then the switch need to be replaced......sodeep

Can't turn my compuer on


Check on *********** board that your CMOS jumper is in normal mode otherwise change it - also check any beep sound aswell as you remove all the cables ie.. IDE cables, front panel cables I mean only the 2 power cables to the motherboard and try to start the pc by shorting the power switch pin with a screwdriver see the display coming or not ????

IF it is a branded pc - you have to buy the same companies motherboard, normal motherboard will not work with branded pcs.

My PC Won't Start


Short beeps are usually a ram error. Try reseatting the ram stick(s) and if more than one then try one at a time and in different slot combinations.

Failing that try resetting the bios via the cmos jumper on the motherboard.

Do all of above with power off at plug off course :)

Board does not start!!!


Hello,
Try to reset cmos. You might have caused a short in the motherboard circuit and the cmos might just need to reset.

Thanks,
