Monitors no longer receive signal after unplugging and plugging memory back in

Q: Monitors no longer receive signal after unplugging and plugging memory back in

I went to start up my computer earlier and it would not boot up properly. Looking online someone mentioned it could be faulty memory. So one by one I took them out and started up the computer to see if it would boot with potentially removing a faulty memory stick. None of them seemed to be causing a problem so after installing all the memory back properly, neither of my monitors no longer receive a signal.
I have tried reconnecting everything and checking all connections. I have tried turning off the computer and extracting the CMOS battery for 30 seconds. Not sure what they next step in solving this is.

Preferred Solution: Monitors no longer receive signal after unplugging and plugging memory back in

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I have the Hyperx Cloud and the microphone easily unplugs from the headphones so that you can choose to not have a mic some times. While I was talking with my friends on skype and needed to mute the mic quickly so I just pulled out the microphone and when i plugged it back in it didn't work. I have googled many solutions but nothing seems to work.

A:Simply unplugging my headphones and plugging them back in seemed to break them. HELP!

Do the speakers still work after you have unattached /reattached the mic?

Presuming you are running Windows (as you haven't specified)

Open control panel, then open Sound (depending on your OS and view options you may need to click on the Hardware and Sound option first or similar)

In the sound window, click on the Recording tab.

With the Mic attached how many devices do you see?

Is the Mic on your headset set as Default?

If you remove the mic and reattach (with the sound window open) does the mic get recognised and show back up in this list?

Does it remain as default / enabled?

Video card is capable of using dual monitors. Has been connected to two monitors recently without an issue. Bought two new monitors and rearranged everything. When computer starts up, the splash screen comes up on both monitors, and even the Windows XP screen comes up, but before finishes booting up, one monitor goes blank and says "no signal". The other performs normally. I've tried switching which input on the video card each one is connected to (and thus tightening the connections), and the same thing happens, just in reverse (as in the opposite monitor goes blank). Any suggestions?

Getting ready to do the install on my new SSD with some trepidation. I have Raptors in Raid 0 right now and would like to simply unplug them, set the BIOS to AHCI and use the 0 port for the SSD experiment/potential fiasco. What I hope to be able to do if the SSD doesn't like me, is to unplug it, set the BIOS back to Raid, plug in the Raptors and pretend the whole thing never happened. Does this stand a chance of working?

A:Plugging and Unplugging!

I wouldnt unplug the raptor raid - if you use intel raid (the one i'm sure of and probably similar, or the same for others) when you enable raid in the bios it also enables AHCI - so you should be good to go with testing the ssd drive - just unplugging a raid array can be very hard to set up again - i did it years ago and it was a miracle i got it back up and going again (that included reinstalling the OS) so not recommended - it also depends what options are available in the raid rom (i think its called) which you set it up in before you install the OS. From memory, which is bad, the problem was it couldnt recognise one or both the drives.
It depends on your motherboard I guess but for mind it should be ok - running raid and using the same controller to use a ssd drive in AHCI mode - but treat this as my opinion - you should be able to find information on your motherboards site, or intel etc's, site. Or wait for more replies as Im uncertain and more repies means more suggestions.
If it has 2 controllers eg intel and jmicron use the JMICRON if it supports AHCI to be on the safe side.

Hey guys. I ran into a little problem recently, and would like to share it.
I know it is supposedly ok to plug USB cables in and out while the computer is on, but, to be safe I have always gone through the Safely Remove Hardware icon.
For some reason, though, I have always felt it is safe to just plug sound devices in and out with no regard to whether the computer is on or not. Have done this for years.
However, I noticed a few days ago that one channel of my onboard sound line input had quit, on my newest MB. I did not realize this for awhile, because somehow the system had just rerouted the one channel into both sides, when writing to the CD or DVD. (I noticed that Joe Walsh appeared to be playing an unplugged guitar on the Eagles Hell Freezes Over concert after transferring from my old VHS tape to DVD, even though both speakers were working! LOL)
Anyway...I fixed the problem by just installing a sound card. (by the way, even a cheap $14.00 sound card is at least as good as most onboard sound: mine sounds much better than the original.)
So, would you guys advise having the computer turned off, even to plug in headphones, for instance?

A:Plugging/unplugging sound devices

No, 1/8" jacks can freely be plugged/unplugged while the computer is on, and when you're outputting sound.
As to why the jack went dead, cou÷d've been just natural death of age, removing the plug at an extreme angle and damaging the jack, etc...

My problem is this, my motherboard is Biostar TP67B and I have downloaded the sound drivers from the manufacturer website which is realtek high definition audio.However, If i had left my headphone plugged into my front panel jack and when I restart my computer, the headphone icon keeps flickering saying its plugged and unplugged constantly when it is in fact plugged in. I had tinker around a little bit and I have no idea how to fix this problem now. Its going bad to worse as it unplugs itself randomly now. I'm trying to go for a full reinstall of my sound drivers.

A:Headphones Plugging and Unplugging constantly bug

Have you tried a different headphone? Maybe the headphone and not the PC or headphone jack.

If not the headphone, check the connection from the front panel at the motherboard, May be a bad connection there. Reseat (unplug then plug back in) the connector at the motherboard. If it still has problems I would suspect the front panel headphone jack, or the wiring.

Hi all,

Acer 7740g, Windows 7 HE.
I have this annoying problem that when my AC power is plugged or unplugged it makes a beep.
Muting the sound completely helps, but that's sometimes not an option.

I tried the following and no luck:

Editing a registry entry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Sound\Beep and changed it to "No".
Uninstalling the Beep device from my device manager.
Turning off my pc speaker, unfortunately, I didn't find where I can disable it.

Hi all,

I'm at a dorm room with cable internet. It usually works fine, but now if I unplug it, then plug it back, the computer doesn't connect to the internet anymore. Sometimes it says it's acquiring network address, but that doesn't change. The computer connects to the internet fine if I turned on the computer with the cable already plugged in.

Another computer doesn't have this problem with the same cable, always able to connect after being unplugged/plugged. Both computers are on Win XP.

I suspect the Windows firewall has something to do with it, if only because it is turned on the the problematic computer, and not on the other one. I couldn't turn it off, however, because it doesn't let me open up Windows Firewall Settings, giving me the message that the "associated service is not running" and whether or not I could like to start it. If I click "Yes", it simply says it "cannot open Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing service".

Please let me know what the problem might be and what i can try to get it working again. I hope I haven't given too much useless information.. haha. Thanks!

Hello, I've noticed that my computer crashes everytime i unplug or i plug in and USB drive. Today I bought a new USB mouse and when I connected it no crashes were seen, but when my pc installed the last driver, the BSoD appeared once again. I'm using Win7 64b and I really don't know what can I do, I've tried everything like uninstalling all USB drivers and recreate the INFCACHE.1 file, but still nothing. What can I do to solve this?
Thanks in advance.

A:BSoD when plugging/unplugging USB and when installing USB drivers

1) Does it happen with all usb devices or only the mouse?
2) Does it happen with all usb ports?
3) Does it happen in safe mode?
4) Look in device manager - are there any yellow or red symblos?
5) Download and install the newest chipset driver for your system. If it's a laptop, get it from the website of your laptop manufacturer. If it's a desktop, you can get it from either the desktop or the mobo manufacturer's website.
6) Look for a bios update.

Are you using an original Dell OEM Adapter? When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Is there any damage on the system?
Does the adapter led stay on and stable or does it go off when connected to the system?
Disconnect the adapter and battery and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds to release any static power. Then try connecting with the adapter only / battery only.
I would first suggest you to try with another power adapter. The current one in use might be shorting the system and hence the system powers off.
If another adapter works fine, then replace the adapter. If the other adapter  also exhibits the same behavior, then replace the DC port - this is the part you would need - http://bit.ly/2kZR8go
If nothing works, I would suspect a faulty motherboard. 
If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ

I have a Dell Vostro 1400 running Vista Home Basic and have had two periods in the laptop's existence where it would mysteriously freeze. You could see everything on the screen, and the power lights were on, but it would not respond except to a hard reboot by holding the power butting down for 5 seconds.

I am going through one of those periods now, and have discovered that the problem happens when I am either plugging or unplugging the AC power adapter, but don't know why. I have been all over the web for a solution, and while it does seem I am not alone with this problem, I have not read a sensible solution yet. My favorite bad answer is "don't unplug your laptop when it's on."

So, does anyone know what it could be? I wanted to look at system logs, and so went into the Event Viewer not even sure what to look for, but didn't see anything that looked like a likely culprit. Please help!


A:laptop freezes when plugging and unplugging AC power adapter

being a member of the Dell Community Forum, I looked there and found this

A lot things happen in Windows when inserting the AC power adapter.

To check if it's a classic CPU lock-up: repeatedly press capslock. If the capslock light doesn't change, there's no live in there.

Assuming the CPU is locked up: It's possible there's a log entry in the system log just before the AC power adapter is inserted. These entries give clues where to look, just before things went sour.

Next try to reproduce it in Safe Mode (press F8 when Windows start) If it's also in Safe Mode - try running an alternative OS (no need to install)

If the problem also shows up here - most likely it's a hardware issue.

Otherwise it's a windows issue - might be driver related.

the "alternate OS thing is a link on the forum web site. Click here to go to that site.

Hope this is some help... Raybro

Hi All! Been a while since I've posted, but sitting here reading other's posts, I almost forgot why I logged in!

I have a weird problem with my computer.....a little background:
I didn't turn the computer on for a LONG time....perhaps a year, so one day, I decided to boot it up and it won't boot past the post! So I replaced the MB battery, checked the power supply, replaced the memory...and it booted. But then, I turn it off, and it won't boot again...same problem with it not booting past the mem. post. So being that it was an old computer, I figured I'd just build myself a new machine and use the hard drive as a slave. There are programs on the drive that I want to use that I cannot replace! Well, I tried doing that, but the new computer won't see the drive....it won't even boot with it plugged in. So....

I take the hard drive to another machine that I know works fine, and it boots. Problem solved....so I thought. I turn it off, and try and turn it back on.....nothing.....no beeps, no post....nothing. So I tried changing the power supply, and plug all back in, and it boots. Turn it off, nothing. Long story short, if I unplug the motherboard power cord from the board, and plug it back in, it boots, but if I turn it off, I have to repeat the motherboard plug thing to get it to boot again. I have had the drive checked for viruses, and it's clean.
I have to admit, I am stumped! Any ideas? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciat... Read more

Dual Core Windows 7 Pro 64 bit Toshiba laptop. My daughter was working on a Power Point project for school. She went to plug in her flash drive and it didn?t seem to load the drive up. She unplugged it and then plugged it back in. We got a BSOD. We restarted it and it BSOD again. I tried some general troubleshooting, including restoring it to a previous version, and now cannot get into Windows at all. Not even in safe mode. Now I am getting multiple BSODs.

Currently I am seeing these BSODs:

I am getting one when just trying to start and run windows I am getting a BSOD about memory management.

If I try to go into safe mode it loads the files and then I get a BSOD regarding the fbwf.sys.
Using the Windows 7 disc I have been able to get to the System Recovery Options. It finds my install and then blue screens with IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL even before it gets to finding my install.

Other BSODs I know I have seen are regarding the Ntfs.Sys and PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA.

I was able to run a mem test on it at one point and it said everything was fine. I would appreciate any help or advice you can give me since I can?t even get to a command prompt or safe mode.

Urgh. Typical.

Install new case fans after moving 2 HD cages from the front of Corsar 600T case.
Check they run ok. Fine.
Put HD cages back in, one in the space on the bottom of the case beside the PSU.
Fight with the cables to get the HDs connected and the modular PSU cables back into the PSU.

- Attempt to power on. Nothing.
- Check cable, try another power cable. Nothing.
- No fans, no lights, nothing.
- No 'electrical sound' when flipping the switch on the back of the PSU.

Seems I have a 7 year warrant on the PSU and its only about 3 years old. But Corsair RMA system insists that you "try another PSU to verify the problem is the PSU" which is fair enough so off to buy another PSU, probably another Corsair. Hope the RMA system allows for refund rather than replacement, otherwise I'll have 2 PSUs which isn't really much use. I guess I can use this as an opportunity to upgrade to a bigger PSU since 7970 CF, 3 HD, 2 SSD, i7 2600K @ 4.7Ghz, a powered device connected to almost every single USB port is probably getting towards it's limits. I can then stick any replacement HX750 on Ebay or something...

So tonight I shut down my computer and unplugged the VGA cable from my graphics card and tried to plug it into the VGA input on my motherboard. The reason for this was because I tried switched from dedicated graphics to integrated graphics (Long story). When it was plugged into the motherboard I tried switching my computer on and my monitor came up with 'no signal' and the light stayed orange. So I tried to plug The VGA cable back into my graphics card then I still got no signal!

II've tried everything from re-seating the graphics card and RAM to trying different monitors and cables. It simply isn't working and all I did was unplug the VGA cable from my graphics card into my motherboard VGA input. I can't post any detailed system info as I am writing this on my iPod (very time consuming!) as I can't even do anything on my computer. But my monitor was displaying everything perfectly fine before I unplugged my VGA cable (when my computer was shut down) I don't see what's causing this.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Left click on this and from the pop-up select the device by left clicking on it. Wait until the following message is displayed.

Click 'OK' and then remove the device.

I have an Aspire V5-572P-6646 laptop and run Windows 10.  I cannot pick up a wifi signal unless I'm within 10 to 15 feet of my wireless router.  My HP laptop has no problem picking up the router on different floors.  Is there a fix to the wifi problem with the Aspire laptop?

I'm working on an old server computer. The Dell PowerEdge 600SC. It is running Linux RedHat, can't remember what version. I don't know much about Linux. I'm wanting to clean install Windows 7 on to it, and use it as another computer for our office. I upgraded the RAM, CPU, and added another HDD. Now when I connect the monitor it will not receive a signal. The monitor works when connected to another computer.

Here is the RAM I installed:

Here is the CPU I installed:

Here is the HDD I added:

I used thermal paste when installing the CPU. I also wore an anti-static wristband while working on it. I have tried putting the old ram back in, but it still won't receive a signal. The old CPU I can't use because while separating it from the heatsink some of the pins got bent. I originally installed the new HDD as the master and used the old one as a slave, and I tried flipping them also but still nothing. Anybody got any ideas? Thanks.

A:Upgraded RAM, CPU, and HDD; Monitor Won't Receive Signal

It sounds as if your system is not even going through POST. The HDD wouldn't cause that. Since you already tried putting your old RAM back into the machine and have the same problem, I would think you are having an issue with the new CPU. Did you verify with Dell compatibility of that CPU with the system?

After trying to install some new RAM and a soundcard, my computer doesn't ouput a video signal anymore. My video card worked fine before this and the fan on it is still spinning. All monitors just display a "no signal detected" message. I don't get any beeps and it don't hear the hard-drive booting into Windows. I tried to remove almost every part of my computer, but I don't even get any beeps. I already tried to reset the CMOS. Is my mobo dead?

A:I don't receive a signal to my monitor after some maintenance

This sounds like a Power supply problem.You might try a new one as
they don't cost much.Get at least 350.Thats happened to me.
Or your Power on switch might not be connected.
Or you left your Power supply in the off position during new installations
and havn't turned it back on.

I have a problem with the Sierra EM7455 Broadband Card (installed from factory on my T570 at November 2017). I can connect to WAN only if the signal is very strong. I had confirmation comparing my smartphone and T570: in the same place and the same time , I can connect to WAN by tethering on smartphone, but it doesn't connect by SIM on Sierra EM7455 on the T570. The SIM Card provider is the same (3). There is a way to set a better signal receive? Or other way to improuve it? RegardsFabrizio

I have a Dell Laptop D830 with wireless card (Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n WLAN Mini-Card) (as listed in Device Manager). I travel for work and stay in multi hotels with wireless. I cannot get connected via wireless (all they offer) at a hotel where I must be for several months. I work all day using wireless at the work location but when I get to the hotel, it can't find the wireless. A co-worker, same laptop, same hotel has no issues. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the wireless card, searched for new driver and got response that my driver is correct. Hotel wireless is unsecured and requires no password. We compared our setups (my co-worker and me) and can find nothing different. Any ideas to try?
