This is a difficult one without knowledge of specifics. However here goes. The absence of beep codes would indicate that the motherboard is getting through its POST routine OK, although some boards give a single beep when the POST is completed and the absence of this beep indicates a problem on these boards.
The CD drive not ejecting can be that there is no power to it. Does it have a light on it during POST. If so it is probably just stuck. Try using a straightened paperclip in the very small hole in the fascia plate.
Now to graphics, I am sure you have checked that the computer to monitor cable is firmly connected at both ends, and if the computer has two graphics ports, that it is plugged into the correct one. Does your graphic card have a separate power supply, if so is this securely seated? The way to test the graphics is to connect another monitor that is known to work into the computer and seeing if you get a picture. If you do then the monitor you are using is faulty.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
The hard drive would not show up until you initialize it in the control panel. With everything off the motherboard you should get some post beep. Put the ram back and try again, the next thing to install is the video to see if there is any indication of function. Keep adding things back. If there is no post beep with just the motherboard then you need to test the PSU and if it is OK then CPU or motherboard is bad.
first check wether ur monitor light is blinking if not there is problem with ur display or the power is not correct if all this is ok and ur monitor light is blinking remove the cpu cover remove the memory and restart ur computer in new motherboards muzzers are fitted on the motherboard or else connect a buzzer to the speaker pin iin the frontpannel and restart the computer with no memory you will hear 2 long beeps it means the memory is not present then clean the memory pins eith an erasor dont use any metalto clean the memory insert the memory in the nemory slot if you hear again the long 2 beeps it means the memory is fried if you hear one beep means the memory is fine and the system is working still no display means then check if the display card is addon or motherboard built in if addon change the addon card if built in contact chiplevel service person also check the ponit cable connected firmly to the computer with 2 screws on the cable tightened to the cpu
There r problem with your CPU not from Monitor might be any hardware failure at that moment.Pls restart the system after that if display is coming or not if display is not coming might be RAM chip is faulty replace it with goods one.If display still not coming then problem with your Motherboard.pls get it repair by vendor.
Since you have measured the voltage on the motherboard I must presume you are saying there is no power "indicator light" on computer. If this is not the case please clarify. If the light is absent please test the battery as these laptops are not designed to work without a battery or with a dead battery. Operating without a battery can spike the motherboard or other components and cause failure due to overvoltage. If you do have a power indicator light then next observe whether the bootup is proceeding with a beep after the POST (power on self test) and whether you can hear the movement of the hard disk drive... possibly indicating failed LCD display or display drivers/setup. Press F8 after the POST beep to get to safe mode display drivers.
The first thing to do is to pay attention for "beep" when your press the power button (or the reset button) to turn the computer on or reboot it. The beeps that a PC makes tells you a lot about the state of your computer. I couldn't quote for you the exact beeps to listen for, but your manual for your motherboard may tell you. Different beep pattersn tell you what is wrong with a computer.
I think for many common motherboards it is something like 4 beeps to tell you the graphics card has failed. Don't quote me, but that is at least along the lines of how it works if not the exact number.
If you're getting no display after starting your computer make sure you hear one beep. Then, listen for other activity. If you're computer has a floppy drive, listen for the 'floppy seek'. Otherwise, listen for hard drive activity. If it sounds as though there's activity along those lines but still no signal/display on the monitor perhaps check the cable between your PC and the monitor. Never hurts to just make sure the monitor is turned on of course.
If your monitor is on, and the cables are connected securely I wold restart the computer again and check for the beeps. I would be certain to count them and check the manual. Your graphics card may have failed if you hear abnormal beeps (more than one as one is usually the healthy indicator). If you hear no beeps then the PC is not even getting in as far as testing it's devices and could quite possibly be a motherboard failure.
