C90 thinking about buying new video card

Power is fine laptop runs can hear it powering up, but screen does not turn on? I think its the video card that blew, would replacing it fix this? Does not display, not even hooked to a secondary moniter.

Most video cards are integrated into the motherboard of the laptop.

You would have to replace that whole motherboard.

    Thats a good idea to be able to upgrade them. The only problem is some of these video cards are drawing a lot of heat and the battery right along with it. I wonder if they stop supporting them because there were a few too many computers getting cooked.



    It shouldn't be hard to get a motherboard from Asus. You might have to contact support to get one because support on their website for notebook computers is pretty sparse.

Dell inspiron 630m laptop. turned it on, programmes started up then died. turn it on now nothing on screen but there is power. no fan running all the time or overheating. think it might be the video card...


> no power
> no fan running

Remove the battery.

Disconnect the AC power adapter.
Use a "multimeter" to test the voltage/amperage output from the adapter.

Connect the AC power-adapter, and try to turn the computer on.
If nothing happens, then the computer's motherboard has "died".

Take the computer to a qualified technician, for professional trouble-shooting.

Dell Laptops (Has power no display issues)

1. Immediately run PSA. (Make sure laptop is connected to AC Adapter. Leave laptop off. Press and hold on the Fn key then press power button once).

2. Just wait for about 3 to 5 minutes then you might will hear beeping sounds (no display with beeping sounds) this means that laptop is working fine but no display. This might cause by either the video card or LCD.

3. After hearing beeps turn off laptop. (Press and hold on the power button for about 3 seconds)

4. Leave laptop off. Press and hold on the D key then press power button once. If full screen colors appears this means LCD is working fine and the problem is the video card. If no display from the LCD no colors were displayed try the test again just to make sure. If still the same no full screen colors then the problem is the LCD.

I would say your laptop is fine it is a display you require.
If you browse ebay there are lots to choose from at different prices. It is a straightforward job to replace the screen.
Hope this helps.

When I try to turn the laptop on, it comes on for approx 1 second and turns off. The indicator lights flash and you hear a noise from the cdrom. No display on the screen, no beeps. It does this when...


It looks like it's one of the following: a) fan not running and CPU overheating; b) video card fried; c) CPU fried
Possible solutions:
a) Check to see if you can hear the fan running when you turn it on. It should run all the time, sometimes fast, sometimes slow, but ALWAYS on. Check if the laptop has too much dust inside it and clean it up (remove the bottom cover and blow air using a compressed air can). If the fan runs ok and is always running, then go to the next point
b) if the video card is fried, there is nothing you can do. Video cards in laptops are usually part of the motherboard and is not something that can be replaced or repaired. You'll need a new montherboard... and it is more convenient to replace the whole laptop. Sell your old one for parts.
c) Same as above. If the CPU is fried, it can't be replaced or repaired. Get a new laptop.

Nothing but multi colered lines verticly on the screen


Try this:
Turn it off.
Disconnect power cord and any other device attached to it.
Take battery out.
Without anything attached. Hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds.
Connect the power cord only.
Hold down F2 (while it's off)
Turn it on while holding down F2.
Let go of F2 when something comes out of the screen.
If multi colored lines still appears.
You have either defective LCD(screen) or video card.

Blank screen upon startup


Try taking out the hard disk, plug in power and see if you have a display on your screen or external monitor. if same thing happen, try taking out the memory card. If you hear a beep sound it's a faulty mem. card, if no beep sound appears I suspected it's a motherboard faulty.

The screen automatically turns off even though the laptop is on..


First i need to know if the screen comes back on if you move your mouse. Because if it does the update changed your settings for power saving. To change this, either check the screen saver setting to make sure that is not on blank screen and if that is not the case go to Start Menu>Control Panel>Power Options and see what the settings under power schemes is. It will have two options, Plugged in and batteries. For plugged in Set the time To never and it won't turn your display off on you again.
If this doesn't work let me know so i can update and solve your problem

Hope This Helps
