H50-55 no beeps, no signal to monitor, 3 weeks out of warranty

Q: H50-55 no beeps, no signal to monitor, 3 weeks out of warranty

I am helping an elderly friend of mine who has a h50-55 that has a "no signal" message on the monitor. I checked the monitor on my laptop and it works fine. I checked all the external connections and they are fine. One thing I noticed: when I start the machine the power light comes on, the machine does NOT beep at all, the fans run inside the machine but other than that it is all quiet and dark>The warranty expired on 2-16-2017 (he's had this issue for a week). Started on 3/3/17, 156 days out of warranty, go figure.Sounds like the motherboard or cpu to me, any opinions.Any way Lenovo would extend warranty since it's so close. I've never had any dealings with Lenovo.

I was pretty much given a HP computer with printer and scanner. Which is maybe 3or 4 years old I would guess. The CPU is a micro tower, I have never seen one this small. So last night I hook it all up. At first it does not beep at all, then later it beeps 4 times. The monitor says to check video connection. All seems well, still won't do anything. I hook another monitor up that I know works, same thing.

I take the cover off and check for any loose connections. The power to the hard drive is loose. I then reseat it and the computer boots up great. But now I must hold the power button down for at least 5 seconds before it will power off. It will reboot just fine but if I shut it down it does this same thing again. If I unplug the power to the HD and the plug it up again. It boots up fine.

It is running Win98 SE. Could this be a software conflict or virus? This thing has tons of different programs on it.

When I boot up my PC there is no signal to the monitor and I do not hear any POST beeps. If I wait a while (it varies a lot; 30 sec to 3 mins +) it eventually starts up and works fine - never crashed. This is a new PC and the prob started to happen 1 week after I purchased it. It is getting worse and worse. I will take it back if I can't get the prob fixed myself. I checked that all cables are seated properly and heat does not seem to be a problem according to the BIOS reading and ASUS PC Probe. The specs are:

Intel Pentium 4 2.60C GHz, 800 MHz FSB, 512 KB Cache, Hyper-Threading
ASUS P4C800 Deluxe, Intel 875P Chipset
Antec Performance Plus 1080AMG with Windowed Slide Panel
Antec TruePower 430 Watt
Corsair 1024 MB TWINX XMS3200 400 MHz CL2
Sapphire Radeon 9800 Atlantis Pro 128 MB DDR
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2
Creative Inspire 6.1 6600
Seagate SATA 80 GB, 7200 RPM, 8 MB Cache
Lite-On 40X/16X CD/DVD
Lite-On 32X12X40 CDRW
Sony 3.5" Floppy Disk Drive
Logitech Elite Keyboard
Logitech MX500 Optical Mouse

A:No signal to monitor & no post beeps.

Sounds like it might be heat related within the monitor itself. If it is possible for you to connect another monitor it would easily rule this out. does this happen when the system is hot and first started, like running it a while, then shut down, and start it back up? If not, I'd still say it is heat related. Thermal problems are not always related to things getting too hot, sometimes a faulty component will work fine after it gets hot, and only show problems when it is cold, and vice versa.

Hi, so, my problem is, pc randomly freeze (can be while playing or just while im browsing), and video goes off and the only way to shut it down is by turning off the PSU, when I try to turn it on, all fans work except for the cpu fan, and I get no signal, beeps or anything and again I can only turn it off with the PSU switch, it eventualy turns on as it should but I dont think its good enough to be using it like that, have tried with the mobo inside and outside the case, tried taking out 1 of the video cards.
PSU is a corsair 650w have it connected to a surge protector and mobo also has surge protector. thanks in advance

**I don't know my computer specs and obviously can't get it from my computer but if you tell me where to find it on the chips, I can try to do that.**

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?

I recently got an Asus Vento 3600 case and moved all the parts from my old case to this one. I also added an extra seagate 250GB hard drive and upgraded the psu to 550W. But surprise surprise when i turned it all on there was no picture on the monitor but also no POST beeps. Everything was working perfectly before i moved all the parts. I took out the RAM and powered on the computer, it beeped so i replaced it again but still no luck, i then took out the graphics card and turned it on and got no beeps again. Also could someone who has this case tell me how to connect the case to the front header properly.

This is not the first time this has happened. When I attempt to turn on my computer, the computer plays three beeps [one beep, then two in succession (beep... beep beep...) and the monitor receives no signal. Before, when this happened, I usually turned the power supply or unplugged the computer and turned it back on and it worked. However, this time, the computer keeps making the beeping noises and the monitor displays nothing. I know it is not a problem with connections or the monitor, but what is happening?

Thanks for your help

By the way, the computer reads from the floppy and appears to be running

A:Monitor receives no signal, Computer Makes three beeps, appears to be booting however

Need to identify your specific moterboard model or PC model numbers.....couldn't hazard a specific guess until then.

Those beeps can usually be identified as to the cause of your hardware malfunction. Make note of how many and in what sequence (i.e. one quick, two short.....three long repeating......etc.).

Edit: Duh, you did make note already.....now to find the manual.

Hi,i came home from school the other day trying to start up my computer to see a black non working screen when i start my computer up. I first thought it was my monitors fault since the dat before this my computer was working fine,but i can play my ps3 on my monitor, so monitors not the issue.I thought it was my video card since that gets video to my monitor but I think thats not it since my mouse keyboard are not getting power(no lights), also i read that power supply might be the problem but i doubt it since video card headsink case fans are working.When on startup there is usually one beep. This time there is no beep at all. Also that the blue light on motherboard is on.On the motherboard there is a led screen that says FF , i dont know ehat that is. If you can explain to me. Also I tried cleaning dust off my monitor, taking off memory and putting it back doing the same for video card, still no results. Im thinking either the motherboard is not working or the cpu. I dont really know. Kinda wierd how my computer not working anymore when it was working the day before this. So please help me I dont know what to do.

Motherboard:nvidia 780i
Video card:geforce 9800gt

As the title says this computer is just two weeks out of warranty and the right screen hinge melted and the computer is completely dead. This is my daughters computer she uses for her school work and it was in her room. It obviously could have started a fire.

 My T580 suddenly one day stopped reading my external USB-C hard drive, I tried updating the drivers and several other suggested repairs with none of them working. The power light on the drive would come on but the computer didn't read it, verified with a second drive and they both work on my other computers. Looking at the timeline, I realized that this happened while the computer was still within it's warranty period, but I was busy and just let the problem go. Then two weeks later the computer just shut down on me and after letting it sit with the lid closed for a while, it was able to restart and I got a warning message at the BIOS screen that "The Power Adapter is of lower wattage than the one supplied with the machine" or something along those lines. Once booted up I was able to see that battery nuber one was fully depleted to 2% and the 2nd battery was at 99%, it then shut down on me again. I ordered a replacement power adapter to test and got the same message and the same symptoms, the computer would basically trickle charge at a rate slower than it consumed power, at this point I finally called customer service and started a repair ticket, this is when they told me that the computer was three weeks out of warranty....I send it in and a week later recieve a repair estimate of $589 to replace the whole motherboard. I called right back and complained that this computer was having problems before the warranty was up and was simply told it was out of warran...

For the past week, the router has been losing strength so everyone has to come next to the router to be able to use the internet. It works so slow if they go to their room, when it used to work fine for over a year.
Ive reset my router.. Ive upgraded their firmware.. Ive turned it off and turned it back on. Nothing seems to fix this problem. Any solution for improved signal strength?

A:Inspiron M5030, 7 beeps, Out of warranty fixes?

The 7 beep code indicates that there is a processor failure of the out of warranty 2010 model.

Try releasing the static power and check the system is working. Follow the steps below:
Switch off the system; remove the battery, ac adapter and the power cable. Press and hold down the power button for thirty seconds to drain any excess static power.
If still no go, consider searching for a replacement CPU on 3rd party seller sites.

First off, the motherboard is a Tyan Thunder K7 S2462. Everytime I turn it on, POST beeps 4 short beeps. From what I know, it's a system timer failure, but then again it could be something else.

I just recently bought new RAM to try and resolve the problem, but it still gives me the same error. Could my mobo be dead?! Also, I bought a new CMOS battery and replaced the old one. My HDD and Optical drivers are fine.

At one time I had it working, and I reinstalled my OS and thought everything was OK. Later that day, I turn it on and again the four POST beeps.

My issue is with the mouse touch pad of my HP Elitebook: after I have hibernated/put to sleep the laptop for a few times (not shut down completely), then I make it again on - and when I touch the mouse pad, there is a funny beeps-beeps-beeps signal coming, which is very disturbing. Then I can use the alternative mouse which is a small ball in the middle of the keyboard, but its difficult to use, so I have to close all programs and to shut down the laptop completely. After that the mouse pad starts working fine, but after a few times of hibernating/sleeping the laptop, the problem appears again. How can I get rid of this terrible beeps-beeps-beeps signal?

my hp 3500 no signal beeps 5times help me solve it

A:hp 3500 no signal beeps 5times

Hi: 5 beeps means there is a memory issue of some kind. Basic troubleshooting steps... I suggest you remove and reseat the memory modules, and if that doesn't resolve the problem, if your PC has two or more memory modules, remove all but one and see if the beeping goes away. If it does, remove that module and put the first one in you removed and if the beeping starts again you have found the bad memory chip, etc. If it doesn't, remove that module and put the second one in you removed and if the beeping stops, you have found the bad memory chip. Then replace the defective memory module with one with the same specifications. If the beeping continues despite trying those steps, then either all memory chips are bad (unlikely), or the motherboard has a problem.

A:No signal beeps after turning on the computer


It seems like you narrowed it down to the core componets. See if you can put in a new stick of RAM. That might eliminate it. If that doesnt help, thne sadly your CPU or mobo might be damaged. Do a visual check of the MB to see if anything is broken (i doubt it). Maybe just try a new PSU for good mesure (unless your fans come on)


BTW DOes the power come on and quickly shut off? That could be your CPU saftey switching of the system to prevent damage.

Ya, I'm having a hard time getting my PC that I just built up and running...
After finally getting all of the pieces I ordered for my PC off of Newegg.com, I started putting it together. After installing my Motherboard, CPU, RAM, and connecting the case wiring I fired it up hoping to hear some bios beeps. I got nothing no beeps just the fans start up. So I continued the build thinking that it might just be something wrong with the speaker. But after installing everything and hooking it up with my display I just got the message "No Signal - Digital". I checked all of my fittings and everything seemed OK. So I disassembled it down to the motherboard.
So I returned my Motherboard and Graphics Card for new ones and started again. I installed my motherboard and CPU (no RAM) and fired it up and Voila! Bios beeps! 1 long 2 short, which I think is supposed to mean bad graphics but that could be wrong. But after installing the memory I don't get the beeps anymore...and even if I skip the memory and just install the Graphics Card I still get 1 long 2 short.
If anyone could help me with this it would be great because I've been stugling with it for quite some time.

My System Specs are:

AMD Atholon 64 3700+
Antec SmartPower 2.0 - 500 watt
(2) Kingston 512MB PC3200 - 184 pin
CD/DVD Drive
Floppy Drive
150GB Hard Drive

A:No Signal - Digital, No Bios Beeps?

If it has Award BIOS then 1 long 2 short is indeed a Video Adapter Error. I don't suppose you have another video card to test? If you've seated everything properly and are getting those beeps thats definately the place to start.

Then put the Power Adaptor in ONLY

So... here is the problem:
A few days ago I connected my PC to my fathers TV. Everything was working fine until I decided to change the resolution. After I changed it I did not get blank screen instantly like you normally do if the resolution is not supported by the TV (which is not, but I found out that later). Then I restarted the computer and I got "no signal" on the TV, fans were spinning, hdd was spinning, my sound card glowing, and no power to my keyboard or mouse. I have no beeps too, but I can't say for sure because I noticed I don't have an iternal speaker.

Things I have done so far:
-Reset the CMOS
-test the ram and videocard on another computer, both working perfectly fine
-use different cables
-use different monitor that does not support that aspect ratio either and end up getting the same result
-remove the GPU and plug the HDMI cable on my mobo instead, same result
-remove the CPU power 4pin to see if something different happens. Yes it does fans spin for like 2 seconds and then the PC turns off
-plug and unplug HDD and SSD

A:Black screen (no signal), no beeps, no power to mouse and keyboard

some boards have internal speakers now. if you ever had beeps, you know that something failed.
and switching resolutions was not the cause
besides keyboard the hdd indicator on the case might give you an idea wether windows is booting and you do have a display problem.
i'ts a good idea to take the mobo out of the case, try to get mobo+ram+gpu to work. short-circuit power on pins on the mobo with eg a screwdriver to power on.
other than that, you can only swap parts until stuff works again. ram and gpu were smart starting points. i recommend PSU next. mobo is possible, cpu failure very unlikely. 1 in 10.000.

Sorry for the long text, I'm trying to send as much information i have.

Hello forums!
A few years ago i built a new gaming pc because i wanted to be able to play high quality games. But since day 1 i've had nothing but problems. Whenever i play one of my high quality games such as "Assassins Creed, Tomb Raider, Battlefield 3 or Primal Carnage" the monitor goes completely blank showing a "no signal to monitor" sign after gaming for between 5 minutes to up to 2-3 hours. The monitor sometimes also shows different color stripes either for examples: orange, pink or grey. The sound of my friends on skype usually keeps going for about 20 seconds before going silent, the sound of the game shuts off instantly or goes in a loop or starts with a loud buzzing sound. The fans and the LED's on my pc are still going but i can't control anything on the pc making me have to force restart my pc on the power button.
I've been on this forum before talking to this guy who is helping me but he's been quite busy lately so i need some extra help.
I've updated all drivers to latest, i never overheat, the GPU does not go over 51C when gaming and CPU never goes over 51C either.

My monitor (ViewSonic VA720) is set to turn off after 20 min in the WinXP Power Options Properties. The monitor goes into standby correctly, but will will oftentime not come back on after resuming. It will just show a black screen and the lights on the monitor indicate it's in standby. Pressing the power button on the monitor seems to have to effect. When turning it back on it will say signal out of range, and then go back into standby. My system is:

AthlonXP 2200+
MSI 6600GT 128MB AGP (Driver 163.75)
Windows XP SP2

The only way to fix this is to reboot the machine, which is not always convenient. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hi I'm having problems looking up warranty information for an HP Monitor I purchased at Tigerdirect (P.S. They no longer accept returns for anything per there policy change so this will likely be the last thing I buy from them). Anyway When attempting to lookup the Serial Number and Product Number it says it isnt found...I'm not sure what is going on. Someone I know purchased an identical monitor and is having issues and needs to turn there monitor in for warranty and is having the same problems I have.

A:Monitor Warranty

I think I found it. I was about to login to the Chat Support Site and somehow it grabbed the warranty info (not sure how... Evey check has failed thus far)The product Number has a second A (My product Number on the back of my Monitor clearly does not) Here is what is on the back of my monitor: K6X12AHere is what the computer some how found: K6X12AA  (note the second A)This is very concerning. Even after using the Warranty Check tool the Product Number on the back fails. I can even upload a picture of my Product Number for proof.

Hello People,

I have a branded, Zenith PC with:

Intel P IV (845 GVSR)
2.26 GHz
256 MB RAM
160 GB HD

The Video, Audio and LAN are on-board.

For the last two months, I have been facing a blank Monitor problem.
It starts like this.

I turn on the computer and it boots fine and work for 2 mins.
Suddenly, the Monitor goes blank with the cursor stuck.

I reboot the computer (power button on CPU):

Computer Powers on
Montor Still blank (Power light will keep flashing Green on the Monitor)
CPU Fan spins
No Beeps
Hard Disk kicks but light stays stable, (just like Power light) I mean earlier, it would flash.

This happens for as many times I restart the computer.
I have changed the RAM, Hard Disk. No go.

Given for repairs in shop. They changed nothing, no go.

Formatted the computer in DOS, zero level formatting - 4 times. No go.

Connected the Monitor to the Power socket on wall for 2 hours.
No issues and ran without any problem with Check Signal Cable.

Ran with a 1 GB of RAM from a friend of mine. Still the same.

I have this computer for over 2 years now, and this is the first ever hardware issue I am facing.

Gave it to the manufacturer, but he just replaced one IDE (Data) Master cable and handed back to me.

I will not surrended my PC to him again, as he uses my PC as junk and mishandles it.

Please help me.
God Bless you all.

Was posting on a message board earlier and my computer froze. I turned it off manually and turned it back on after about 3 mins. It came on with 5 beeps consecutively, with a short pause between the 3rd and 4th beep.

I've changed out the memory and hard drives along with the video card. Hope its not the processor. PSU seems fine as well...green light is still on on it. Everything is on, but nothing is on the screen.

I'll make it simple. Nothing's appearing on my monitor. At all. I turn on the computer, nothing appears. I can hear (and see) the CPU fan, chassis fans, and power supply fans turn on.

... Nothing appears on the monitor. And the optical drives don't spin up. (My video card doesn't have a fan, it has a heatsink, I have no idea if that's getting power.)

I removed -EVERYTHING- except the power supply, motherboard, and CPU. It wouldn't even beep at me.

I know the power supply works. I know the memory works. I know the video card works. Those all came from my -old- computer (which I'm still USING, since the new one won't boot).

I even switched out the processor, and it did the same thing.

And a hard-reset doesn't fix anything.

I sent back the motherboard, they tested it, said it worked fine for them. They sent me a new board anyways. Still does the same thing.

I have no idea what's going on. Here are my specs:

Mobo: Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe
CPU: Athlon XP 2800+ (Thoroughbred)
Memory: 256 PC2700 Crucial DDR RAM
Video Card: GeForce4 MX440 64MB
Power Supply: Antec SL400
Hard Drive: Western Digital WD800JB

A:No output to monitor, no beeps

Did you check the standard items, such as: no false contact between the mobo-supports and mobo, properly connecting the small cables for speaker, reset, power etc. ? No part of the mobo even slightly bent by tightening the screws too hard?

Does your mobo have a speaking POST that can be switched on with a jumper?

Try to connect the mobo while it is lying on its anti-static wrapper, rather than inside the case.

Purchased at a Best Buy on 3/24/17 and was pretty satisfied with it, until about a week ago, when the monitor ceased to function and no power would go to the screen. My Best Buy receipt stated that all returns/refunds must be made with the original packaging of the item, which I no longer have, so I decided to contact HP Support in hopes of receiving a refund or replacement, or something of the sort, but the warranty check states the the manufactor warranty ended on June 12, 2012. I don't know how this could be possible, being as I recently purchased the monitor, but any help is much appreciated. Thank you very much for any chance of correcting this issue.

I just bought and installed my Antec TruePower 330W power supply, and when I went to turn it on, the monitor wouldnt start up, and there were no POST beeps... The first thing I tried was my old PCI video card, but still no monitor, no beeps. Then I took and hooked up my old PSU to the motherboard and tried it...nothing. What do you think happened? I belive the motherboard is still covered under warranty, but I really dont want to have to take the time to RMA if I dont have to.

I placed this at the end of a previous thread. Probably should have created a new one.

This is challenge for my technical expertise. Or maybe the phrase is technically challenged.

I don't know how to reference another thread. But previous communications are under thread titled "monitor not working wait?? ?"

For the longest time, I had to unplug the keyboard for a cold start, or "restart" instead of turning the computer completely off. Otherwise I would receive two beeps and startup would halt. Nothing appeared on the screen so I could not be sure what was happening. With the help of this site, the problem appeard to be memory.

I found something on the web to clean out the registry, and it started working normally again.

Well, now the two beeps have returned, and the keyboard unplugging won't even work. I was not installing any new software or hardware recently.

I downloaded a program to check memory. It ran for a couple of days and found no problems. I've changed the order and number of memory sticks. No change. Taken out all PCI cards. Unplugged D drive. Said a few words.

When I insert a diskette that should be read first (like an emergency start-up) still get the two beeps.

Before I drop back 15 yards and see how far I can kick the box, anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks for the help

I'm trying to check the warranty on a z27i monitor and the "normal" and "enterprise" warranty check sites both keep rejecting my serial number as invalid. They ask me to enter a product number as well and if I do that it still does not work. I've been hunting around for the appropriate way to contact HP. I REALLY hate this separation between consumer and business products. After checking multiple places I can't find anywhere that lets me contact HP without a serial number - which is my problem! Can anyone from HP help please??? I don't want to post my serial number here.

I know you guys get this question all the time, but I'm just confused right now. And yes I read the sticky.



Current Ram:

New Ram:

Here's what's wrong. I've had this computer for quite some time now, so I decided it was time to increase my ram from 512MB to 1GB. Now, when I added the new stick of ram into the mobo and booted the computer, I received no bios beeps and there was no monitor display. My first thought was that I bought the wrong kind of ram. However, when I took out my old stick and put in the new one by itself, my computer runs fine with no problems.

So now I'm guessing there's some kind of conflict between the two sticks. My question is: why? Albeit they aren't the exact same, but I figured the differences between the XMS and VS wouldn't be a problem.

Also, all of the drivers for my motherboard are up-to-date, and I flashed the bios with the most recent version. I'm not overclocking either.

Anyone have any ideas? Are they just not compatible for some reason? Or did I mess up and buy the wrong kind of ram? Or is it something else?

Thanks for any help.

I decided to use the money I got from selling some of my old textbooks to put together an inexpensive gaming computer. I'd consider myself a total neophyte at PC building, as this is my first build. So forgive me if I use some incorrect terminology or if I'm missing something really simple. All the parts were bought brand new from Amazon. Important Parts list:

Intel Pentium Dual-Core Processor G860 3.0 GHz 3 MB Cache LGA 1155 - BX80623G860
BIOSTAR H61MGC LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500w Power Supply (RS500-PCARD3-US)
Corsair XMS3 4 GB 1333MHz PC3-10666 240-pin DDR3 Memory Kit
Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6850 1GB PCI-E Video Card (100315L)

I haven't hooked up the hard drive yet, nor used the case for anything other than the power button, so they should be inconsequential. Before mounting anything in the case, I tried a minimal build sitting on the motherboard box, which I had seen recommended in several different places. I seated the CPU and the stock fan, and the video card and my 1 stick of RAM and hooked everything up to the power supply, connected it to my TV and attempted to power it on. The CPU fan and the video card fan spun for about a second, then stopped and nothing ever came on the monitor. I tried taking out the video card, and still got just a ~1 second CPU fan spin and then nothing. I tried re-seating the CPU, but got the same result. I tried moving the RAM stick to the other slot, and got the same r... Read more

A:Solved: New PC build, no POST, no beeps, nothing on the monitor

My initial thought would be possibly a dead power supply. If you are getting nothing with a minimal build the the likely culprits are PSU or motherboard in my opinion.

There is a guide to problem builds here, if you run through that in its entirety that should point you at the culprit. But I would certanily consider an RMA on the motherboard and/or PSU at least.

A:PC turns on but i Don't heard beeps nor monitor turn on

No beeps is not good. It is possible that your old PSU is not powerful enough for the new setup. Try the following:
Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the CPU and CPU fan, and take out the RAM. This includes the front panel connections and graphic card.
Connect the PSU and start the system by shorting the two pins for the cable to the front panel power button. some beeps is good. power off and fit 1 RAM stick. Restart. Fewer beeps is good.
Now fit the graohics card and restart. 1 beep is excellent. Power off.
Fit the other RAM chip and restart - still 1 beep - excellent. Power off.
Now reconnect 1 piece at a time, restarting after each one. When it stops you have found your problem.
1 other thing to check - make sure that there are no extra brass motherboard support stubs - if you have one where there is no screw hole in the motherboard it can short out the board underneath.

This morning I turned my computer upside down on my carpet to fix a slow leak at the drain plug of my water cooled computer. I need to use some epoxy on the slight crack at the drain, so after fixing it, I left for work with the computer still upside down. (I still had water in the system and couldn't replace the plug until the epoxy hardened) When I got home from work, the computer was on it's side.
When I set it back up and booted it up, the fans work, the pumps for the water work. the mobo's lights work, the hard drives spin up, but that's is as far as it gets. No beeps, No POST screen, nothing on the monitor at all.
I cleared the CMOS, removed the battery, removed all of the RAM but 1 stick, removed the hard drives that didn't have the OS on it, removed 1 of the video cards, removed the CD and DVD drives and just went with a bare bones set up. Same thing, no beeps, POST............ect. The only thing I noticed when I set the computer back on my desk was that the speaker switch and the power LED switch were pulled out of the motherboard and the pins were slightly bent. I straightened them and plugged everything back in and still the computer runs but doesn't boot the OS. Can anyone think of anything else I should try?

A:Computer starts, no beeps, no POST, no monitor

I removed both videocards and replaced it with the card out of my 3rd computer. That didn't help, so I can rule out the videocard(s) as the problem. I removed the C:/Drive hard disk and put it into the other computer and ran Western Digital's Data Lifeguard Diagnostics from a floppy and after an extended test, the drive passed with NO errors. So I can rule out the hard drive as the culprit. I tested all 4 sticks of RAM with MemTest and they all passed.
So that leaves just the motherboard and the FX-60. The motherboard's LED's all light up when power is connected to it, and pressing the start button fires up the fans and water pumps like it is supposed to.
How likely is a computer tipping over 90 degrees onto a carpeted floor making the FX-60 turn into a worthless piece of silicon????

Hi guys,

Desperately looking for some help.

Here's my situation...

I installed Windows 7 on my computer and rebooted one day and the screen never came back. However, I really think this has nothing to do with that - it is just a coincidence.

I hear no beeps , but that is normal for me because I don't have a computer speaker connected (so I normally don't even get the 1 beep on post).

Ok so at this point, I suspect the power supply. I take the pc to my local repair shop b/c I didn't have any other power supplies to test it on.

They test it and get it to boot fine with a different power supply.

So... seems clear that's its power supply... right?
So today I buy a power supply at best buy. I made sure it had enough watts and amperage on the 12v rail to handle my video card.

I hook everything up and get the exact same issue!!!

Fans turn on... no display. No usb power it seems either, because my USB mouse/keyboard receiver doesn't blink any lights like it normally should.
Only thing I can think of is my wall outlet is doing something weird. I tested the voltage of the outlet with a multimeter and its reading 124 volts... above the 120volt that it should be.
Is this difference enough to do damage to a power supply?

Unless the repair shop did something else besides just switching the power supply, this is the only thing I can think of that may be a problem.

To make things even more odd, the power supply that they said was bad (at the repai... Read more

We just moved. Now when I turn on the computer, it will make its whirling sounds then it will beep 3 times..like error beeps. The monitor will display "no signal". So I tried another monitor...same message. What could be wrong with it all of a sudden? This is the kids computer and they are sad

A:turn tower on..beeps 3 times..no image on monitor

To me it could be one of three things if you are comfertable going inside the computer try reseating the ram or if there are two sticks take one out and see if it will boot up if not put it back and take out the other stick and try to boot up if it will boot up with just one stick then the other stick is bad. to test the power supply see if your cd or dvd drive will open are there any lights showing? If its none of the above its your motherboard most probably a capicitators blown or something see if you can spot any dark marks like burn marks on the motherboard. Well I hope its the ram.
