What is wrong with my computer?


Is the monitor new? Because some monitors need to warm-up a little bit. Have you tried to remove video card and/or mother board and reinsert? If that doesn't work, try the video card in another PC, If it works there, then the video card itself is probably not the problem. (recommended). And those beeps (3-3-3-1) mean "Erase F2 prompt", but I don't know exactly what that means. This is all I know for now.

My computer makes 1 long beep and three short beeps on startup. No signal to monitor. monitor checks out ok on another computer, so does my video card and cable. could I have a problem in the motherboard?


This code is an indication that your video card has a problem.
Try removing it and putting it back in. Make sure it's properly seated (that's probably the problem)

I have a samsung syncmaster 933SN monitor. It keeps blinking on and off. I have rebooted. Unplugged and replugged all connects from pc to monitor and it keeps bliking on and off.


If you heard a 1 beep that means your computer is working! But with 1 long beep and 3 short beeps or 1 long and 8 shorts beeps and no beep. That means there is a problem with you computer. Try cleaning your video card and memory pin using hard eraser and brush it using small paint brush. If still doesn't work try connecting your computer with different monitor. If still doesn't work, probably either your video card or system ram(memory) have the trouble. In that case you need to troubleshoot your computer component by testing 1 by 1 with working parts in order to identify the defective parts. Good Day

When I turn my monitor on, the green power button comes on and then turns to amber. Nothing will display. What should I try


You need to check your video card. Check if it is still ok and functioning properly. You can also try checking your memory card. that are the two pieces usually causes that problem. Try this :

1. Double check the cable that connects the monitor and video card. Remove the connection of your monitor to your CPU (the video card cable is what i mean) then turn on your monitor. If the monitor displays a message like this " Check signal cable" it means it is working fine and there is a problem in your CPU.

2. This step is just for PC that are using PCIE or AGP video card,not built in there motherboard. Remove your video card if you have a PCIE or AGP video card, using an eraser (pencil eraser) you can clean the connectors of your video card (the coppers that is use to connect it to motherboard).

3. Try to remove your memory card. And the same as what you do in your video card, use an eraser to clean up the copper connector of your memory.

4. Put it all back in place. Make sure it is properly connected. Then turn on your computer.

If your monitor is still not working, you may use an internal speaker so that you can check if there is a problem in your motherboard.

If you don't know the meaning of the beeps try to read my tips and tricks i have the beep codes there..

When turned on all i get is fans constantly running and nothing else was working fine up till then


Sometimes the best answers are the simplest. First, make sure the video monitor is switched ON, securely connected to the computer video port and the "brightness" control set to at least mid-point. Before focusing suspicion on the computer itself, try a different "known to be working" monitor AND CABLE. Failing all the above you should carefully observe a manual re-start of the computer noting the presence or absence of 1.) pilot or drive indicator lights on or flashing, 2.) A beep tone or series of beeps emanating from the computer ( one beep is good - more than one is an indication of trouble requiring a technician ). 3.) Fan(s) running. If you have lights, fans, and a beep but no video, ( not even a blinking cursor in the upper left of the screen ), replace the video or graphics card in the P.C. with one known to be working. This should solve the problem.

When you switch on the computer and monitor does the monitor power light illuminated?
If not check the power cable, if the power light is on try connecting it to another computer, if it works on another computer then the fault is in your computer or a faulty video cable (try another video cable).
If the monitor does not work then it is faulty, if it is OK then your computy is faulty.

If the fault is in your computer, you didn't exactly pinpoint the nature of your fault.
Does the power light on your computer illuminated when you power up?
Does your computer actually boot up, does it give and beep code (count the number of beeps - 7 beeps usually means video problems, depends upon the type of BIOS)?
When your computer first boots up and you see POST information on the screen then nothing, it is most likely :-
1. The refresh rate of the video card has been set too high beyond the monitor's specification.
2. Video card configured with incompatible monitor.

If you computer fires up and the monitor is OK the you have a faulty graphics card, you need to replace it.
