No Complete Boot, No Beep, Or Monitor Signal

The symptoms for my pc are as follows:

1. Pc receives power (as indicated by fan and powersupply light)
2. Pc does not output signal to monitor (verified functioning monitor and cable). 3. Analog, laser-mouse does not receive power consistently from pc. Laser-light turns on for a fraction of a second upon connecting the mouse to the pc, but then remains off after the mouse is firmly fixed into analog mouse-port. 4. Usb, laser-mouse does receive power from pc when plugged into usb port. 5. Pc does not make any beeping sounds whatsoever upon attempted boot. My request: please advise as to what troubleshooting methods i could use. Do these clues provide any insight into what may be wrong with the pc already?

Pc Has No Video Signal - No Beep Codes Or Tones

I have been trying for several days now to update one of my systems to a newer more powerful one. In both cases i was having similar problems. The first motherboard was an fic 1st mainboard k7 ati at31 fusion and i was using 256 ddr and a 1800 amdxp, it had the ati video built in on the board. Case and powersuppy were both genuine antec 300 watt ps. With this system initally i could get no power at all then after installing and reinstalling it powered up but would give me no video signal. Nothing to the monitor so i could not even adjust the bios or setup. I returned the above to frys and got a second motherboard of different type, an albatron kx400+ pro 8235 via kt333 and a new amd duron 1300 1. 3 ghz cpu. Placed these in a second new antec slk2600amb super mini tower case with antec 300 watt ps. At first it wouldn't power up either. Then it slowly started coming to life. Sometimes it would cycle on and off. Power to the drives floppy, hd, cd and dvd works until you connect the ribbon cables. Then they don't work at all. Video signal never does appear. No beep codes or tones. My suspiciion is that either 300 watts isn't powerful enough or the 256 of ddr memory is somehow faulty. But i now have tried this with two different motherboards from different manufacturers and the only common denominators is the same ram ddr memory and the similar yet different powersupplys from antec. In both systems i an unable to get any video signal. In one the video was built onto the motherboard and in the other i was using an aurora nvidia geforce 2 mx200 agp slot card. I am trying to update this system which is running windows me without going to xp at the moment. I need to use the same hard drive which already has all my data and programs installed.

Pc Takes A Very Long Time To Complete The Boot Up Sequence

My daughter has a dell inspiron 1150 laptop which seems to have some sort of memory conflict of sort. It takes a very long time to complete the boot-up sequence and then, for no apparent reason simply slow down to a halt when opening a program (microsoft word, for example). The fan starts working overtime and processing performance slows to a halt. The task manager shows that most of the resources are being consumed by the system idle process. I have run spybot and adaware and mcafee anti-virus and nothing one turns turns up any problems. Any suggestions as to where to look next?

Pc Will Not Boot, No Post Beep

My wife and i have matching custom built pc's. Recently the liquid cooling system in her pc needed to be flushed and refilled. I removed the mobo from the computer, pulled the cooling system from the cpu, flushed and refilled, cleaned and prepped both heatsink and cpu and applied new thermal compound, reassembled the system and turned it on. First time after flush it ran fine for about 10 minutes, then shut down normally (on it's own). Since then it has not booted properly. The indicator light on the mobo is illuminated, showing that there is power. Upon pressing the pwr switch, all devices begin to run, all fans, drives, and keyboard/mouse turn on, but the bios never starts to boot, and no post beep sounds. I am thinking that it is most likely the mobo or cpu but was hoping that someone could post an alternative here that i could try before shelling out the $200-$300 for replacement parts as everything is past warranty (by like 3 months).

Single Beep On One Boot

Alright. I was playing around in the bios and i selected a fsb setting of 166 and rebooted. Blank screen, no boot. Nothing. So, as in previous instances of this i cleared the cmos by the jumper on my soltek sl-75frn2 and held the insert key as i powered on. Nothing. No go. The cd-rom reads, but doesn't do anything else. The hdd light comes on for about 20 seconds and disapears. I heard a single beep on one boot, that is all. I have unseated the memory and videocard independently to see if i would get a beep but there were no such instances.

Asus A8n-e Boot Problem (beep Error Code)

I've been running xp on a asus a8n-e motherboard for a good while without any problems. The other day i replaced my hiper type r 580w psu with a corsair hx 520w, and now the pc won't boot and beeps 1 long followed by 3 short. I've stripped it down to bare essentials (motherboard, vc, memory and cpu) but i get the same problem. The problem also persist when i reconnect the hiper psu. 1. Reseating everything. 2. Using any possible combination of memory stick(s) and slots. 3. Resetting the cmos. The rest of the pc is as per sig, with the exception for vista which will be installed when (if!?) I can sort this.

No Monitor Signal

A month ago i put together a new computer, asus a8v delux, amd athlon64 3200+, 1gb kingston ddr400(dual channel), ati radeon x800pro(agp) with a 21" dell p1130. This worked beautifully. It worked beautifully after i packed the whole thing up and went to my parents for two weeks over christmas. It didn't work when i packed it up, and came back to my place. The computer powers up and beeps once. The monitor works on another computer. No other monitor works on this computer. I have: reseated the agp graphics card, reset the system bios. The cpu and ram both feel secure, though i have not removed and reseated them yet. The sata harddrive seems fine. I don't know what else to do, and i'm very tired, so i hope one of you has an answer.

No Signal To Monitor Digital

Well what a headache this has been today, i went to reboot my system. During the post boot the monitor went into standby and displayed the message: (no signal - digital). The monitor is connected to my video card through a dvi to dvi cable and has been working for a number of months. I switched cables to a vga to vga-dvi adaptor resulting in vga to dvi. The monitor detected the signal and flashed up with "analog" in the top right of the screen.system then booted into windows. I can see in my monitor's options there is an "input" option where i can select either digital or analog. However if i select digital the screen turns black and then immediately switches back to analog (i assume because the analog signal is the only active one).could my dvi-dvi cable of died or am i missing something really simple here. How do i get my monitor back onto a dvi signal?


Monitor : viewsonic vx2255wm series
Video card: nvidia geforce 285
Any help or advice would be greatly received! Thank you!

Cannot Get Hd4870 To Send Signal To Monitor

I just got a vx550w corsair power supply and xfx hd4870 in the mail, i tried installing both but i cant get the card to send a signal to the monitor. I have both pcie connectors connected to the card and i made sure the card is mounted properly several times. When i turn on the computer i dont get a signal to the monitor and there is 3 red lights that appear on the card. I dont think the psu is the problem because it should be powerful enough to run the card. I got frustrated trying to get thing to work, so i tried plugging back in my old video card and connecting it to my old power supply, but now it wont work either! I tried unplugging all the hard drives and cd drives but still cant even get the motherboard boot screen to show.

Screen Went Blue And No Signal On Monitor

I recently purchased an hdmi cable to use for my computer. As soon as i connected one end to my video card and the other end to my monitor, i went into the built in monitor settings (the dvi cable was still plugged in as well so i could do this) and switched my display to hdmi. After that, my screen went blue and i got a no signal message on the monitor. Now the problem is, i can't even revert back to my original display settings, so i can't even get anything to show on display anymore (i am using my netbook atm). I tried restarting, as well as disconnecting the hdmi cable on both ends and reconnecting dvi. Nothing. The screen stays blue and tells me theres no signal. Keep in mind that i didn't even save any settings. I simple selected hdmi and that was it. Can't see desktop, and i can't even see the bootup sequence. I am very baffled here does anybody know what i can do? The video card is a geforce gtx 295, and the monitor is a benq 2200hd.

Monitor Won't Get Signal

Some days ago, i received a new computer:

Mb: asus p4c800-e
Cpu: intel p4 3ghz
Ram: 1024mb ddr
Psu: 550w
Gfx: ati x800xt pe (sapphire)

And my problem is as follows:

When i try to power up my computer, i hear the fans start, and after like 2 sec, i can hear the hdd's getting power as well. At this point my monitor should get some signal the return from the standby mode, and show the processes before and after entering the bios. However, the monitor never gets this signal, and stays at standby mode (with the orange light on, instead of the green). I got a friend to stop by, to check if my cables were connected properly, and there were no problems concerning this. So my question is simply, what is wrong with my computer? Okay, ive tried the suggestions sofar, and none seemed to work. However i found out that if i turn on the computer, and leave it for 2 minutes, then turn it off, for 2 sec, then turning it on, makes me start the computer. However i have to setup my bios all the time. Sounds like my computer have to warm up, before i can proceed. But that sounds ridiculous. Right?

Another question regarding this :

Could hyper threating have any influence on my problem. Atm its set to ht, so if i go to bios, and adjust the power settings, (eg more power to the cpu/gfx/hdd. Whatever) should it work then?

Else if i disable ht, and reinstall winxp, would this perhaps do the trick?

Replaced Power Supply Now Monitor Not Getting Signal

I first looked at it and determined that the power supply was bad so i replaced it. I see the fan above the processor has started and it sounds as if the computer has started but my test monitor will not get the signal. Along with my monitor not getting the signal, it appears as if the keyboard and mouse are not getting power as well because the mouse has a light on it which comes on when it gets power. I also attached a thumb drive to the pc and it too does not get power to it. I am thinking that the board was damaged when the power supply went out but if anyone has any suggestions as to what else i should look at i would like to hear it. Btw the computer is a e-machines c2280 and not too sure what the other specs are since the computer was broken when it was brought to me.

No Signal To Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse, No Beeps

My computer isn't very old, no more than a year, it's been working fine. No new software or hardware. I haven't moved it. This morning it wouldn't boot up properly. After clicking the button, it gave 1 long beep and 2 short ones. No signal to monitor. I didn't check keyboard or mouse. All fans appear to be working. I replugged everything to make sure nothing was loose, and turned it back on. No more beeps, still no signal to monitor. Keyboard and mouse aren't lighting up. I tried unplugging the power cord and pressing the button to clear the power. Still no beeps, no signal. All fans are still working. Any suggestions please?

Ati Radeon 9600 No Signal To Monitor

I've had this computer for 3 years now and haven't had a single problem with it yet. It was built by ibuypower. It came with the ati radeon 9600 already installed and worked for three solid years. I ran this computer and another computer on a kvm switch which allowed me to use one monitor keyboard and mouse for 2 computers. This also worked for quite some time before i stopped using the switch. Today, after my computer with the ati card updated windows xp, it restarted and now i can't even get it to show anything on the monitor. Everything still runs on the computer, all the leds inside the case still work, all the connections are tight, there just isn't a display on the monitor. What i've tried: i've tried rebooting into safe mode (don't understand how that could have worked because i can't see anything from the time i turn my computer on up to the time i try to reboot it) but no luck. I've tried removing the video card and cleaning the fan (fan still runs when it is in and computer is on) i've hooked up the monitor to a different computer and it worked fine, so it's not the monitor having problems. I've tried multiple restarts.

Monitor Displays Signal Cable Disconnected

My monitor displays signal cable disconnected what shall i do?

Have you tried plugging in your monitor to a different system unit? If by doing this solves your problem, then i would assume a graphics card problem, or maybe a contact problem of it to the main board. Then, you can try cleaning the graphic card contact. If this didn't work, you probably have a faulty card. Or you may try plugging in a known good monitor to your system unit? If after doing so resolves the problem, then the problem is on the monitor. Signal cables of monitors are the common cause of it, you may try moving the cable while connected to your pc. Replace the cable if possible.

Pc Monitor Without A Video Signal - Black Screen Bios

Upon starting my computer, it doesn't always start, it just sits with a black screen not loading the bios and the monitor claims there's no video signal. It's been like this for less than a week now consistantly. So, i'll reboot and everything is suddenly fine and the bios loads up and windows is good to go. Last week i added a gigabyte wireless card to my pc which i believe might have caused some some problems. I took the card out yesterday and i haven't seen the problem comeback so far. I'm really baffled as to why something like this would happen whether it's just the card or if something relating to my motherboard is bad, like the pci slot. The wireless card worked fine and everything. What should my next step be to figuring this out, should i put the wireless card back in? Any tests i can run to see if a component is going bad?

Computer specifications:

Msi k8ngm-v board
Athlon 64 3000+
Xfx 6600gt
2 512mb gskillz ram sticks
Audigy se soundcard
Gigabyte gn-wp01gs wireless card
Seasonic 330watt psu
80gig seagate hd

Computer Turns On, But Monitor Shows Nothing And Mobo Doesn't Beep

Last night i got on my comp and it loaded just fine. After about 20 minutes of use it turned off. I've had random restarts before, but it just shut off, so i turned it back on and here i am now. The cd rom lights came on, all the fans in the computer spin (as well as the graphics card fan), and the mobo power light turns on. The monitor shows nothing at all (no load screen, no bios, nothing), the mobo does not beep, the restart button does not work, and when i power down the system and press any key on the keyboard the system will power back up (but once again, not load at all). I've tried switching the ram in every possible slot combination, but i'm just stuck now.

Hp Pavilion A375c Monitor Doesn't Receive A Signal

I'm currently trying to diagnose a problem with an hp pavilion a375c. The problem is that when i turn on the computer the monitor doesn't receive a signal, and thus there is no display. I have taken the following steps:

- I have connected the computer to another working monitor (no change). - I have taken out the video card and replaced it with one that works (no change). - I have tested the new and old video card on a different computer, and they both work. - I have disconnected and reconnected items in the pci slots (no change). The computer does turn on. I can hear the fans, i can open the drive bays, and the power light is lit. The only thing that i can figure is that there is something wrong with the motherboard, after all this computer is about 5 years old. Also, before anyone asks, i have looked at the hp pavilion website for help before i came here. So i ask you hardware guru's what could it be?
