Question about Computers & Internet
Try other monitor to be sure that the problem is nothing to do with your system unit. If you do and very sure that the monitor is ok, turn off and unplug the unit first and remove the video card and insert the monitor cable to its onboard location and power up the system. if your system works then the problem is surely the video card. But if not, we have a deeper problem. If you cannot hear any beeps at all when you power up your computer then the problem could be on the major components. Try removing the memory modules and reseat them back one by one to see if one of them is the culprit before powering up the system. if this works, turn off your system again and insert back the video card and the monitor cable. if these never works at all try removing all memory modules and power up the system if you never hear any beeps at all pertaining that the system memory is not present it could be that you have a corrupt BIOS program or your motherboard is defective. Clear your BIOS by finding the jumper setting on the motherboard. Usually it is labelled CLR_CMOS. The default or normal position of the jumper is 1& 2. Clear the CMOS by taking the jumper to 2 & 3 position for about 10 seconds. Be sure that your system is unplug before doing this. After 10 seconds bring back the jumper to its normal 1& 2 position then power the system on. If these works please correct the system time by going to BIOS setting. If these never work at all. Don't jump to a conclusion that your motherboard or you memory modules or your processor may be defective. The power supply unit sometimes is one of the unforeseen component that emulates this trouble. So if you have a multitester (analog or digital), set the range to 50DC and place the black lead on any black wire connections and place the red lead on any yellow wire connections. When you power up the system the multitester should read a stable 12V on your meter any drop to about 2V or intermittent reading means your PSU is defective.
