    I've removed them and tried one at a time and it didn't work. I'm going to see if my uncles granphic card will work in it cause I plan on buying the same one. If the card works I don't have to worry about my motherboard cause everyting else works just fine.

It was a bad 12V rail connector for my cpu from my PSU. I replaced the PSU and now it works.

If you are only getting a flashing line in the left corner of your monitor you may have a damaged cmos chip, because you should be able to atleast get into the bios, unless you have faulty memory, so if you have two sticks fitted remove one and try again, ensuring you use the correct memory slot.

Have a t 3256 emachine. Hard drive will not boot. Fans run. No lights coming on. My acer s200hl led monitor says no signal. Help with issue.

Typically pressing F2 will enter the computer BIOS. Try striking the F2 key repeatedly just as you turn on power. If you are not able to access the BIOS screen then it is likely a power supply failure.

If you are able to access the BIOS con firm that the BIOS has found the HDD and reports on the drive. The format is different for every machine. It is either an IDE or SATA. The DHH that contains the boot sector and OS (operating system-windows) needs to be confirmed to be present in the BIOS for the computer to boot. The computer should still continue but issue an error message that no boot was found.

The fact that no beeps or lights come on and if BIOS is not accessible it would be power supply or motherboard. Remove plug from wall and allow to set at least a minute. Try rebooting.


26057080-gnp32lebnhderv5f2k4gkrdu-5-2.jpg If you are not able to reboot then you can assume that all of your files and documents are still safe. The concern is without technical experience going into troubleshooting the power supply or motherboard can put either your HDD or yourself in harms way. If you have a friendly computer repair suggest you get an estimate first of troubleshooting cost and have them determine the problem. If motherboard make sure that a replacement computer will take your HDD. It would not be installed as a OS boot drive but as a drive where yo could copy over all of your photos and documents into a new PC.

Hope this has helped?

Acer aspire l100 will not boot but fans run

Try removing/disconnecting the hard drive and see if the BIOS boots up, if it does the HDD is causing the problem. Are you getting any beeping codes on start up, if so how many and hoe long in between?

Just installed a new Gigabyte 880GM-D2H motherboard, 4 GB RAM (Corsair DDR3 1333), AMD Phenom II multi-core processor (X6 1055T), 750 W power supply, Maxtor 500 GB hard drive and a Blu Ray DVD Drive. ...

motherboard to hard drive leads

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
one bad lead will end with a computer error a computer needs its connections continue its cycle and have an end to function properly

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working

hope this helps

Bios not working

Disconnect the hdd and see if it shows a BIOS screen. I can't think of anything else it could be other than the BIOS if this doesn't work. A "Windows Update" should harm any hardware on your motherboard. It could only affect the hdd, read/write....

Installed the board, scren displays message no signal and stays black. no peeps or beeps. usb has power so do drives and signal leds

Check the cable between your monitor and computer. If this is a new install and you have added a graphics card, you will need to boot up once using the on-board VGA. Doing so will allow you to turn off the on-board VGA in the BIOS. Then you can shut down and move the monitor cable to the new graphics card and reboot.

Dell Dimension XPS PC Desktop won't boot


Vista is available in 32 and 64 bit os.
if your system ran xp which was most likely 32 bit. And you have installed a 64 bit version os.
this will be your problem, also Vista requires more system RAM/Memory to run it.
If you get 1 beep at startup, it states the system is ok.
Alternatives are device drivers incompatability.
Check M$ website, regarding vistas minimum system requirements.

My Pc wont boot no signal in my monitor Help!

May be your in second HDD, you didn't set the jumper up. There are some more settings you will have to configure in the BIOS menu. in the BIOS, you should set the primary HDD as the master and the second(newer HDD) as the secondary. Then it should boot without any problem but if the problem persists I don't know what to do next.
