Finish installing the motherboard correctly.  Use the Health Monitor screen in the BIOS to get clues and see what it's unhappy about.

If that doesn't fix it; please file a problem in a category specifically for the motherboard you installed.

I have a dell insiron 5100 and when i turn it on the lights on the pc and the fan and all com4es on the laptop but the screen doesnt come on at all ?


Hook a spare monitor to the video output at the back of the laptop, if okay! the cause could be a defective inverter board, or the back light behind the screen has failed, the final possibility is a loose video cord from the motherboard to the screen. But if both displays show the same symptoms it is the video graphics card that is part of the motherboard.

Hp pavilion dv2000 laptop screen doesnt light up, but keyboard lights all work?


Hook a external monitor to the video output on the back of your laptop, if it works then you have a lcd issue with the laptop screen. Now if you have no change, the motherboard would be suspect. I recommend a professional look at it with an estimate.

I have a dell Inspirion 9400 and it won't start. When I press the power button, all that happens is the power light and the dvd player light comes on and about 3 seconds it turns off. Does it with and...


It shows no power on your laptop but it shows you the dvd player led comes on then off. I would suggest try the following:
1. Remove laptop battery, optical drive, hard drive and ram. Remove external peripherals as well. 2. Make sure AC Adapter is not yet connected to the laptop. Press and hold on the laptop's power button for 10 seconds to drain the power flea. 3. Connect the AC Adapter to a known good power outlet, check AC Adapter power LED if it is on. Try to sense if AC Adapter is not making a bit of noise when it is plugin to the wall power outlet. 4. Connect now the AC Adapter to the laptop. Check if AC Adapter LED stays on when it is connected to the laptop. If the LED stays on means the AC Adapter is fine. If the AC Adapter LED turned off check the AC Adapter pin that goes to the laptop AC socket if it is loose. 5. If AC Adapter stays on after connecting to the laptop try to power on laptop. If no power LED comes on then this is motherboard problem. 6. Before replacing the motherboard there is one checking needs to do. If you can open your laptop bottom part then good, do this when laptop is not connected to any power source. Try to reseat the laptop CMOS battery then try to power on laptop after, if still fails then replace motherboard. I hope this helps.

Laptop turns on for a couple seconds but then shuts down, screen doesnt show anything during that ttime


Remove the battery and plug the laptop. If there is no activity when you push on the power button (not even for a second) your motherboard is defective: it could be only the power jack, but it could be a bigger problem also.
There is a very small chance to be a memory problem; check the memory as it follows;
- if you have 2 memory modules use only one at a time, the other one could be defective or
- check your memory with another laptop or
- use some known good memory etc.

If there is no activity or no video signal with good memory that means the motherboard is defective. Could be expensive to be repaired or replaced. Verify if the laptop is in warranty and have it checked by a professional.

Tecra M2 doesn't boot is it a processor problem?


given the symptoms, it points to motherboard.. if it was processor, video or ram. it wouldnt boot at all and you'd just get error beeps from your laptop. i'd first try resetting the bios, by removing the bios battery for 30 min, then putting it back in. if that doesnt work try changing it out, usually costs under 8 bucks. if that doesnt work then I would change out the motherboard, if its cost effective.

My dv2000 boots but screen is split into like 8 parts (each part showing same thing) there are some wavy lines..sometimes its ok ...i try to load windows vista recovery (from partition) - it crashes on...


I have the same problem that my screen splits into 6 but occasionally screen comes normally. I gave to HP service center and they told me to change my mother board. I was worrying about the cost of Mother Board bcoz it costs 1/3 of my purchased rate and also my warranty was expired just 2 months before.

So, I tried some way to fix this temporarily, while screen comes normally, I went to Safe Mode, it works fine. So, I got an idea, it works in less hardware access, I think, how it works when removing NVIDIA display driver. So, I removed it. Now, it works fine but there is a difference in display but that doesnt matter while comparing previous.

I'm still searching permanent solution. I'm planning to change the Hardware of NVIDIA card. Lets see,

Cannot get the option to enable VGA through using F8 at windows S


Sometimes after changing BIOS settings the computer will not start or will possibly give error messages similar to yours. I have at times had to remove the power source, remove the motherboard battery, and set the motherboard back to factory default settings. You also stated that you installed a new motherboard. That could also be a potential problem. If the computer has never started with the new motherboard, the new board may be defective.
