Black screen green dots


What was the last thing you did on your computer before this happened?
Did you change any system settings in the BIOS?
Did you add new software? or update any software or drivers?
Did you add any new hardware?
Is your system BIOS infected with a virus?
Because it appears that your PC is hanging up during the Power-On-Self-Test [POST]

Here's what happens; when the power is turned on, the computer BIOS [Basic Input/Output System] runs a POST (Power-On Self-Test). It is a diagnostic testing sequence that the computer runs to determine if the hardware [like the mouse, keyboard, hard drive, etc.] is working properly.

If the necessary hardware is detected and found to be operating properly, the computer begins to boot; If the hardware is not detected or is not operating properly, the BIOS issues an error message.

The error message may be a text on the display screen and/or a series of coded beeps, depending on the nature of the problem.

The series or pattern of beeps may vary...they may be in a number of long or short beeps or a mixture of long and short beeps, or even one long continuous beep, depending on what type of BIOS is installed.

Since POST runs before the computer's video card is activated or the integrated graphic chip on the main board, it may not be possible to progress to the display screen.

So if an error is detected during the POST it will halt the boot process because the hardware is essential for the computer's functions.

How many beeps do you hear during the initial POST?

You may have a burned out video chip/card; or corrupt drivers; or even an IRQ [Interrupt Request] conflict.

Series of 4 beeps at sign on, black screen


This is an indication that your RAM memory modules are not being detected by your computer system. Remove the modules and clean their gold fingered connectors with tissue paper.

Alos clean the dimm slots carefully with a vaccum cleaner.

Take care!

I have a Dell Latitude C610; after initial 'DELL' screen comes up, the laptop gives one 'beep' then black screen and nothing more- power's still there; can get into setup and boot...


This chart details the specifics of what each 'beep code' means. Usually the codes come in series of 2-3 beeps not just one.
http://www.nullamatix.com/dell-diagnostic-beep-code-troublshooting-chart/
You should also make sure the 'dummy' stuff is done, like remove any floppy disks or CDs from the drive if you have one, and remove any USB drives from the laptop as they may try to boot off of them and not be able to. If you've done that, then check the chart in the link for further information. Sadly a non booting, beeping computer isn't a good sign. If I can be of any more help, please let me know.
Hope this response helps you out.
Best of luck!

please try this steps and I hope that helps you :
1- if you don't shutdown the notebook please click along on power button to shutdown the device and then open it again.
2- if you do that you must check about any voice appear when you start the device like Beep ...if there I think there's a RAM Problem or VGA.. if RAM it,s make long beep ..
3- if there is no sound thin you must note if the start up info appear in screen like Acer,CPU and RAM info , Boot info ....
4- if it appear I think you need new operating system , else may be its Video card problem ..

you can also remove the RAM and restore it may be that solve the problem.

When I turn on my packard bell ixtreme 6052 nothing appears yet it does see computer but does not even go to bios and harddrive read light remains on and harddrive is constantly ticking like it's...


This could be lots of things (bad HD, bad Mother board, bad RAM,etc...) first you need to narrow down the possible cause, open the computer, take out every thing that can be unplugged (I MEAN EVERYTHING) RAM, PCI cards, VIDEO cards, all storages HD, CD ROM, etc... just leave the CPU and power supply plugged in, than power up the computer and listen for BEEP's if you hear a series of BEEP's this means the CPU, power supply and mother board are GOOD, than (with power OFF each time) re-install the components you taken out (ONE at a time) to see which device causes the system crash... I've seen a modem card causing a system mall function once rediculous but true...

Good luck!

Hi, when i boot the system nothing appear on the system. i initially checked my ram it was not workinhg so i bought a new one but still the system won't start up!! it is a p4, intel d865, 512 ddr ram ,...


If you doesn't hear any beeps, at least you must hear one beep.
Clear CMOS or remove the Lithium Battery CR2032 in the motherboard about 1 minute, to know which MB is hang up with processor, then put it back again & power it on.

No beep


What indication do you have that the system is on?
Do you have any LEDs active on the front of the system box?

Also, your monitor should indicate whether you are receiving video sync signals from the system by changing LEDs or the color of one and possibly give you an on-screen notice that it is or isn't getting input.

If you disconnect the video cable from the back of the system box, most monitors will post a small notice on the screen that it is working but not getting any input.

Toshiba e310 no reset


When it is reset the screen is just a series of vertical lines or just plain white. if it beeps it isone quick beep.
It appears to do things when you move the stylist over the screen yet can't go to the main screen.
I have followed factory reset (switch off then on), (reset power till screen on then release power), (disconnect power plug from battery to board). NOTHING worked
