Try opening up your computer first, and reseating the motherboard ram which possibly may be causing the no post situation. If that does not work, check to see if there is a graphics card on the motherboard. If there is, uninstall it and plug it into the onboard video connector.

If any of these situations are not applicable to you , and you do have built in video, its possible its port went out. Your fixable solution in this scenario would be to buy a video card for your computer and plug it into the motherboard expansion slots (Theres currently AGP ,PCI , PCIe x 1 , PCIe x 16)

If you are unsure of what you have on your motherboard visit www.bustype.com and print out a picture of the different slots, and then compare it to what you have in your motherboard so you can take it to the store and choose a product that is appropriate for your desktop.

You need a new DVD drive; they are cheap and easy to replace. Try Newegg.com for better prices than a brick & mortar store.

M5640 power comes on no video. changed motherboard and power supply


I assume you are using the integrated video, (on board). With a new power supply and motherboard you have eliminated all but the monitor. Try a different monitor. I have also seen a case where a computer tower worked fine in one setup with a flat screen, but when hooked up to an older CRT monitor it would not display because of the resolution settings.

The monitor keeps saying no signal


Turn power off to the tower and the monitor before making any connection changes.Make sure that the Blue connector from your monitor is connected to the Blue connector on the back of the computer tower. If this doesn't work you should try the monitor with another computer, just to check that the monitor is working. If the monitor works on another computer you may need to buy a Graphics Card. Next, try another monitor with your tower- If the problem still exists it is likely you need a Graphics Card.

I have a desktop computer that will not work right. My monitor is a Samsung SyncMaster 220 wm, and my tower is a Dell. Whenever I hook it up the monitor will come on for a minute then shut right back off...


I had a similar problem with Samsung Syncmaster. There was no solution but to replace the dying monitor. However, you said that plugging your mouse into your computer caused the monitor to not function at all, or maybe i misunderstood you and the problem was with the mouse. If the mouse is causing problems than the problem is likely with the computer and not the monitor. Try plugging a different computer into the monitor to identify which is the cause of the problem. Hope this helps.

Moniter reads no signal but tower light is on


Have you changed your resolution recently? Have you installed any programs recently? Have you made any hardware changes lately? Make sure the monitor is firmly connected to the tower and to the back of the monitor. Is the monitor plugged into the wall outlet? If you have two video ports on the back of the tower make sure you are plugged into the correct one, you may also try switching to the other port. Try another monitor if you are able to or try the monitor on another tower to see if you can isolate the problem to the monitor. Do you get anything appearing on the monitor when you first start the computer up? Have you been using a video card or onboard graphics?

System appears to come up, but the monitor is like it is not receiving a signal from the computer. Monitor works, tried on another system. have tried two different monitors on computer, same thing. also I...


see if one of the little wires inside the wire end from the monitor that goes into the tower is bent or messed up. If one of those are missing, the whole monitor is messed up. Also look on the back of the tower for the |O| picture. It should be blue.

Which network card.


The Aspire T160 has an integrated 10/100/1000 network interface located directly on the motherboard.

Turns on but no boot


I had this happen sometimes after a windows update/reboot.
If the computer is on, hold down the power button until it cuts off.
Unplug the power cord. Wait for a couple of minutes.
Plug the cord back in, and turn on system.
