Either your memory, lcd monitor or the video card is bad.
Check the Memory by steps below:
Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory 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 onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting. I'm thinking that it might be your monitor because if the monitor was working and the video card was bad, you would get a No Signal message appearing on your screen. Try another monitor on the computer. Borrow a monitor from a friend, family member, neighbor or co-worker and see if it works. If it does then your monitor needs to be replaced. If it does not work, then you've got a video card issue.
Check Video Card below: If nothing ever posts to the screen then more than likely your video card is bad. Go purchase a Video Card that will fit into one of your open PCI Slots.
Three major components usually is causing this kind of problem. One is the memory card. Two the video card . and lastly worst is the motherboard. Check and clean your memory card first then put it back to its place of slot. Start your computer. If you hear one beep but still no pictures, the problem lies in your video card. If there's still no beep sound and picture, and you think your memory card is good, try to clean your video card, then start your computer. If there is still no picture, and you think your video card is good, then you have a problem with your motherboard. Indication that your cpu is working were, beeping sounds, lead lights blinking or changing sequence is present. If it is present, your monitor has a defect an needs to be replaced.But if none of this is present, we have a motherboard problem.
Hi, This could be an issue with the integrated graphics card( This computer has integrated graphics card) or faulty motherboard. In order to check he motherboard follow the the steps below: 1)open the computer tower by removing the side panel. 2)Remove all the memory chips(RAM) from the computer. 3)Try to turn the computer on. 4)If it is beeping then the motherboard is fine. 5)If you don't hear any beep motherboard is failed. ****Even if the motherboard is working as there is an issue with the integrated graphics you need to replace the motherboard. Thanks.
You need to check your video card. Check if it is still ok and functioning properly. You can also try checking your memory card. that are the two pieces usually causes that problem. Try this :
1. Double check the cable that connects the monitor and video card. Remove the connection of your monitor to your CPU (the video card cable is what i mean) then turn on your monitor. If the monitor displays a message like this " Check signal cable" it means it is working fine and there is a problem in your CPU.
2. This step is just for PC that are using PCIE or AGP video card,not built in there motherboard. Remove your video card if you have a PCIE or AGP video card, using an eraser (pencil eraser) you can clean the connectors of your video card (the coppers that is use to connect it to motherboard).
3. Try to remove your memory card. And the same as what you do in your video card, use an eraser to clean up the copper connector of your memory.
4. Put it all back in place. Make sure it is properly connected. Then turn on your computer.
If your monitor is still not working, you may use an internal speaker so that you can check if there is a problem in your motherboard.
If you don't know the meaning of the beeps try to read my tips and tricks i have the beep codes there..
there is a possibilty that the pci slot isnt working on your motherboard. try a different pci slot with the new video card.If all are occupied then swap one to test. if your using agp, well you only have one agp slot so go to pci. just use generic first dont get anything expensive when your testing.
If you buy new PCI video card there is alway CD software attached on this,you should claim for this because it was the driver for your new video card ,without it your PC will have an abrormal operation .Are you sure it was your video card?you can consider also your memory card,Wiht out hardisk,CD room,floopy your computer will run it can open your monitor configuring the cmos and bios.Try on this one disconnect hardisk,cd room,floopy then detouched your memory card clean using pencil eraser the sloted terminal of your memory card,also your video card try to clean terminal by pencil eraser.Then put back memory and video card again if the monitor work.If ok put back again the cdroom,hardisk, and floopy.If not ok Isolate checking the memory and video card also the processor.
Has this been happening on a regular basis? When did this start? If you have a separate video card are you capable of disconnecting it from the motherboard and attaching the monitor to the built in video?
Also as strange as this seems, I have seen some instances of a blank screen where motherboard ram not seated properly can lead to a no post situation.
1.) unplug the system
2.) remove the memory
3.) remove the mainboard battery(cmos battery)
4.) press the power button 5 times
5.) replace the battery
6.) replace the rams
7.) boot it up
8.) enter setup
9.) load defaults then save and exit
if that works then try putting back in the graphics cardm you may need to repeat steps 1 - 9 after installing the graphics card. and pls insure the monitor is connected to the graphics card.
