Computer Power Up, Nothing On-Screen

Ask a question Fatcake901 - Last answered on Nov 9, 2017 at 04:24 PM by Ambucias

So recently my computer, won't show anything on screen.

The fans all start up and everything. Everything revs up. But nothing on screen.

All my monitors work fine. All the cables are pushed in all the way. I've tried taking out the graphics card and putting it back in. Still no luck.

I have tried putting the graphics card in a separate graphics card bay on the motherboard... still no luck..

Edit: I've tried changing ram sticks still no luck..

Any suggestions please would be really treatful. Thank you

Hi Fatcake

Are using only one monitor at a time? If so, I would try another graphic card. It's the only thing that I can think of.

I have a graphics card that has two hdmi slots on it, so I can use dual monitors. Currently both cables are plugged into the graphics card. For to monitors

Thanks for replying so quickly.

I am troubleshooting with you.

Try just one monitor at a time in different slots.

Do you get a message on the monitor(s) "no display" ?

Do you have another (3rd) monitor laying around which you can try?

What is your operating system?

When is the last time you have updated your graphic drivers ?

I tried it in a new monitor same problem...

I tried moving the same display cable around the graphics card... same problem...

I have managed to locate the cmos jumper.
I reset the cmos. That didn't work...

So I moved my 3 sticks of ram around the 4 memory slots until eventually it booted up properly and I could see something onscreen. Asking to reset the cmos date and time...

I restarted the computer and same problem... computer seems like it's working... but nothing on screen...

Any other suggestions please?

My educated guess is that your graphic card is faulty.
