Dell inspiron 530 desktop won't boot, fan is running, no signal on monitor


It sounds like either your monitor or video card inside the computer is bad.

If the monitor is showing the "No Input Signal" message then the video card inside the computer is bad. The monitor is ok otherwise it would not be able to display the No Input Signal message.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the computer is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.



Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

If it seems like the computer completed the boot process but the screen is blank, try the steps below.

The problem will either be the monitor or the video card inside the computer. Connect another monitor to the computer to isolate the problem. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays and works ok, then your original monitor is bad and the video card is good. If the Borrowed monitor does not work then the video card inside the computer is bad.

If the computer did not complete the boot process then try the steps below.

shut down your computer and remove the side cover and remove the memory from the slot and switch on the computer if you hear beeps switch down the computer and insert the memory if you still hear beeps means the tre is an memory failure you need to change the memory while removing memory you didnt hear any beep it means there is problem with your motherboard remove the processor heat sink and the processor clean the surface then insert the processor to the slot apply a thin level of heatsink compound and fix the heat sink then switch on the computer

Almost too involved to list, but, here they are numerically as best I can recall. 1) Began getting BSOD's and system shutting down. Turned off the auto shutdown so I could read the codes. of which there...


Hi,

This might be helpful to you.

First to be able to see the error messages of the BSOD you need to disable the automatic restart to do this make sure that the computer is shut down, turn it on and hit F8 once you see Dell logo, then choose the disable automatic restart (you wont see this option if the computer is restarting). For this you wil be able to see the error.

For your issue right now since its not posting anymore the better solution is to isolate external or added peripherals,you can try to remove the video card ], sound card or any card expansion to your computer make sure its only memory are attached, if you wont hear any beeping codes, then the memory card is ok, if you have 2 video card, try to use one video card, if the problem exist try the card to another pcie slot, if the beeping occurs then its stated that the video card is the problem and try the other one. If you only have one video card the atleast you can try it to different pcie. However if only memory card is attachd and you still hear beeping codes then try one memory at a time to each slot sometimes it might be the memory is causing an issue. For the beeping codes that you provided mostly its a memory based error and memory and video card are the ones with the memory chip.

I hope it can give you an idea how to resolve the issue.

Thank you for choosing fixya.

E-machines T3624 windows xp unit powers up but the monitor reads no signal , the keyboard lights all the lights in a blink but doesn't command , the mouse isn;t recognized


The fact that the monitor displays the "no signal" message confirms that your monitor is getting power and switching on but it's not getting a signal from the graphics card, either due to a fault with the RGB cable between the PC and monitor or a fault in the graphics card itself. If you're convinced that the cable is fitted securely, then the next most common cause of this is a loose or defective graphics card. Taking appropriate precautions against static electricity, open the system case, remove the graphics card and then re-seat it carefully but firmly in the slot (you'll need to disconnect the monitor cable first). Make sure that the copper contact edge is making a secure (i.e. relatively even) connection across the whole length of the card.

Do you hear any beeps? Is this a new problem? Were things OK before?

Are you familiar with opening the case? Do you have the manual?

Inside you can:
Check if the fans run; clear the CMOS;
Re-seat the RAM; Vid Card; CPU; those would be initial tests.
Check for red lights on the front of the case & or the board itself.
If no beeps try starting with the RAM removed: any beeps now?

Let us know if that helps

Dell 4600 no monitor signal


Hey Tony,
If you haven't already: pull all pci cards:
If you pull the ram, and you get no beeps at post, it's likely the main board. Does the pc beep at all? with or without ram? If not, likely the main board. Sorry. Hope this helps...

PC beeping, monitor will not display


we have different sound we can hear in cases of hardware problem, once the video card has loose contact it also beep continously, a beep sound also occurs when the ram(memory card) loose contact, one beep sound when it boot clearly it proceeds as go signal going to operating system. if you are using an upgraded video card remove temporarily and use the on-board from your motherboard. in case that it won't boot and still you hear a beep, beep ,sound then, switch-off the power take out the memory card clean the contact points(bronze color) with pencil eraser, make sure that no remaining residues of eraser remained before you install to the slot. i hope that this solves your problem
