I don't know much about these things but I understand if everything is ok there is an audible beep shortly after switching on, at least all of my pc's have beeped. According to my motherboard manual there is all sorts of beeps as an aid to fault diagnosis.
As there is no display perhaps there is something wrong with the graphics card. It looks as though your motherboard has on-board graphics and it might be best to use those initially with a known good monitor.
Follow these steps First you should Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including BSODs. - Restart your computer and then press and hold F8 keys until you get Advanced Options menu screen.Use the arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, and then press Enter, your computer will boot automatically to safe mode. If you able to start in safe mode then update your graphic drivers from the manufacturer site of your laptop Let me know if it helps you. Use system utility tool like RegInOut to remove unwanted files , fix registry and windows errors which causing blue screen
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED
flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty
inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my
instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3598095-faulty_laptop_lcd_screen
you need strong test you pc ram driv, and Vga drive, it may be from 3: 1.Ram drive, 2. Vga drive /9500gt/, and 3. operating system. And one way in first, reinstall your vga driver for your operating system, if system see it /vga/ automaticly, 100% install Vga driver from Vga driver disc.
Issues with distorted or blurry images normally happens of two issues.Either a graphics card driver issue or a hardware issue. Hence we need to isolate and verify where would the issue be.
Try going to BIOS, (to enter BIOS, usually you have to use the F1 or F2 or F5 or F10 or ESC or Del key, depending on the manufacturer option. If you are not sure which key to use, then shut down the computer and restart it, The moment you restart it, you will find an option like, "Press F10 for setup" something like that. the word "setup" usually refers to BIOS, note, this will be displayed only for few seconds) Hence press that key, while booting up and that will take you to BIOS, Please check if the issue persist on that screen. If the screen still persist on BIOS, its a monitor issue.
Else, that will be an issue with graphics driver, we can try updating the graphics driver
Go to safe mode and uninstall the Graphics drivers and then restart and install the Nvidia Drivers again. Sometimes drivers get corrputed, so this things happens. if ur still getting this, then connect ur monitor directly on motherboards graphics connector and c whether u get this problem again, if ur not getting it means ur graphics card is not good.
If you have run the laptop in safe mode it uses the standard VGA graphics driver, and this indicates the onboard graphics card is still functioning. Try connecting and external monitor to your laptop and the boot up your laptop. Then :- 1. Download the latest graphics driver from ASUS WEB site. 2. uninstall the graphics driver. 3. Reboot the laptop and install the new graphics driver. 4. Shut down and remove the external monitor and reboot. 5. Goto the Control panel - Display and check/set the settings for screen resolution, Colour setting etc.
There is either a problem with the graphics driver not starting properly or the boot.ini file of the operating system is corrupt.
First thing to try is press F8 on boot up and this will take you into safe mode, if prompted for a password just press 'enter'
When in safe mode highlight the line 'Last known good configuration' and press enter for a reboot, if all boots ok then it should be right.
If still no screen, press F8 again on next boot up and this time select boot windows in safe mode and if it boots ok, there maybe a graphics fault or a driver error for something that starts on boot up, as in safe mode only the minimal drivers start (hence safe mode).
If you get into safe mode first, right click my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then go down the hardware list to graphics adapter,and click on '+' sign to your adapter, right click on line and select uninstall.
Restart the pc then it will be automatically installed again and the drivers loaded.
If you are still unable to boot then it is a process of ilimination to find what is causing the problem, but it will more than likely after trying the above be a windows system file error and require you to use your XP disc for a system repair.
Firstly, start your pc in safe mode (f8) on boot up.
This will start your pc in vga mode, and hopefully the lines are still there, which will indicate a faulty graphics card, if they aren't it may be a problem driver.
If no lines, go to Add/remove programmes and uninstal your graphics driver.
Re boot pc then when it finds your card make sure you point Windows to the folder in which you have saved the driver files.
The driver should then install, see if any change.
You may have to try some older drivers, as Nvidia can be awkward at times.
I have had varying problems with Nvidia and replaced with ATI cards with no problems.
