A:New computer build powers up/stays on, but no display/post/bios

Looks like you'll have a real nice system once you get it up and running!

Couple of questions:

1. Do you have both of the power connections to the motherboard? There should be two, the 24 pin and the 4pin.
2. Do you have the power connection going to your graphics card? Most newer cards (but not all) require a 4pin molex connection from the PSU directly to the card.
3. Did you hook up the case's speaker? It would have been one of those tiny annoying to connect wires (assuming your case has a speaker - they are very small and hard to find). If your case has a speaker, this is very useful. The beep codes may tell us what is wrong.
4. Did you use the riser pins into the case's screwholes (under your motherboard) before you installed the motherboard into your case? (some cases have the riser pins pre-installed for you, some don't).
5. What speed ram are you trying to use? Do you have a different make of ram you can test in there?

Also, take a look at the LED lights on the motherboard and see what color they are both before and after you hit the power button.

I usually connect the vga cable from my monitor to the port on my gpu,but for some reason it doesn't display anything now.

I tried to locate the source of the problem by doing these

1) Connected the vga cable from my laptop to the monitor, and it displays the laptop's content just fine so the monitor/cable isn't the issue.

2)Connected the cable to the vga port on my samsung smart tv and to the slot on my gpu and my desktop boots and functions just fine.

3) I opened up my cpu cabinet and dusted the ram and the video card and put everything back in place but that didn't help either.

I don't have a DVI cable with me so I can't check if that works and I don't have another similar monitor either I can test it on other than my tv.

Video card: AMD HD6770

Monitor Samsung 23'S22B series

Hi All I have a PC which up until a few weeks ago worked fine although every so often the fan would fire up really loud for a minute or two PSU fan This happened last week after using the PC for only - minutes and the PC switched itself off Now when I try to power it back up I get no display on the monitor The monitor is still working as i ve tested with another machine and i ve checked the cables are secure I notice the hard drive light comes on for the first seconds only after powering up and then nothing The DVD and CD drives still open and close so are getting power but the USB ports are not no PC on but up powers display monitor powering any external devices I ve opened up the case and its amazingly dusty the CPU heatsink is covered with dust just below the cooling fan All the boards have a layer of dust on them the machine is around years old Does this mean the PC has maybe overheated due to the dust and fried the motherboard Any advice on what I can do to test correct this would be appreciated Thanks PC powers up but no display on monitor nbsp

A:PC powers up but no display on monitor

"Does this mean the PC has maybe overheated due to the dust and fried the motherboard?"... Carefully clean out as much dust as you can. Do this on the power supply too. The power supply and not the motherboard could be bad. Was the CPU fan running?

New everything, but for sake of simplicity all I'm using is literally my motherboard, PSU, and that little speaker thing that beeps at me if need be.

I short the power to turn it on, it should beep at me, it does nothing for a few seconds, then powers down.

My buddy at work told me to try this when I told him of the original problem. Which was... I had the CPU, HSF, RAM, and Graphics card installed.
The result was when I powered up it (the CPU and PSU fan) spun for about 4-5 seconds, then powered down.

Without the graphics card the same thing happened.. and I tried with 3 different sticks of ram.

Motherboard dead, or something else?

A:New build, CPU fan + LED powers up, nothing else works

The thing that really sticks out for me is your power supply. If this came with the case be aware that with few exceptions most are junk. And with your hardware list I am highly doubtful you have enough power.

Utilize the following:

A:New computer build, powers up but won't boot

So when you power up your PC, it starts and then turns off and then back on? So you swapped a GPU with your friend and the PC booted, or what?

Have you overclocked yet?
How many sticks of RAM do you have, 2 or 4? First try only with one stick. If the problem stills persists then swam for the other Stick.

A:pc powers on but no display, beep or anything

First question is: what does it do? Any lights? Fans run? Or is everything dead?

The first guess, based on what you have described, is the power supply is going/gone.
Can you borrow a known working supply to test with?

But if there is nothing happening at all it could be as simple as a case switch.

A:Computer powers up, but nothing on display.

Hi WIznet. Sounds to me like a corrupted video driver. CPU speed going from 800Mhz to 3.5GHZ is normal with cool and quiet. Try starting your machine in safe mode and verify the display works. Then reload the NVidia video card driver doing a clean install. Did you overclock the video card or did your machine crash in a big way whilst overclocking the cpu? You may need Drivesweeper Guru3D - Driver Sweeper to remove the video driver before you can reinstall it. SafeMSI.exe - Start Windows Installer Service in Safe Mode will enable you to unistall corrupted drivers from safe mode.

My first thought would be the power supply. Fans running, CD Drawers openiing and closing, and a few lights on the front of the case does not mean it is booting. Do the Caps Lock and Num Lock lights on the Keyboard light up?

note: i have no vcard, also tried reseating cmos. checked the cpu hsf normal temp

A:powers on but no display, boot, beeps

As you know, something burned out (literally).
The most likely suspects are the power supply and the motherboard (a component on the motherboard).
If you can borrow a compatible power supply from someone you can hook it up to test.

If it is not the power supply then you are most likely looking at a new motherboard. And since this is 7 years old there is a good chance you will not find a new replacement.
It could be time for a new (or new used) system.

Hello All,

I had a problem with my own computer in the past, and this was the only place that I could find help, and now I'm trying to help my brother fix a problem and figured I would see if you all could help me again.

We are dealing with an HP Pavilion zd7140us laptop. When you turn it on, it powers up because all the lights come on, but it beeps three times and the display doesn't come on. Absolutely no idea about what happened other than, my brother was using it and it was fine. He walked away and left it on (so the battery died) and when he tried to plug it in and turn it on this problem resulted. The HP web site was of no particular help. Thanks in advance.

A:Laptop powers up but display doesn't come on...

Depending on the BIOS version, 3 beeps could mean a failure in the memory (RAM). Or not.

I would suggest that although the lights are coming on, the computer is NOT actually booting. That's what the beeps are telling you, so its not guaranteed to be a display problem, as the display will not work until the computer at least passes POST (Power On Self Test).

Sounds like there is a failure in the system, probably hardware.

my Envy 23 Touchsmart has a blank/black display on startup. 2 days ago, the screeen was all jittery, the image was bouncing up and down and full of horizontal lines, now it doesn't display anything. The desktop powers up, I can hear the fans and the power button is lit up. I have tried the F10 trick (multiple versions of it) and have not had any success with it yet. This desktop is 3 years old and is pretty much worthless in its current state, I have a ton of info I need to get off of it, so I would love a way to fix it. I have looked thu the forums already, and none of the tricks have worked so far.   If there is another option out there,  I would appreciate it. Thanks to all who look at this, and bigger thanks if you have any suggestions! Dave

So my PC was left turn off for months while I was away When I turned it on again for the first time it loaded up and I got to desktop no problem But there was a loud rattling coming from inside it I would guess it was coming from the powersupply but i m not I turned it off later that day I turned it back on and it did not work The power supply comes on all the fans are spinning but there is no signal to the monitor Plugging in a key board and pressing the caps lock key it does not light up telling me no monitor PC signal up, powers but to that its not getting as far as the login screen The only friend I have who knows about computers is long distance I described the problem to him he thinks the power supply is not producing enough power and needs replacing I have checked everything inside to make sure nothing has come lose from it being moved around and it all looks good I m a student and do not have a lot of money to buy parts or PC powers up, but no signal to monitor pay for a shop to fix I m pretty sure its the power supply but just wanted some opinions on what it could be or how I can test to find out whats wrong exactly I don t have another desktop or any spare parts just a laptop Thanks nbsp

A:PC powers up, but no signal to monitor

Hi Aruk, i've had this myself a few times. Most of the time it was my fault for not wiring my pc back together properly but since you say it wasn't touched then it sounds like you're psu might have given up.

If you had a spare to test it you'd be able to see but if thats a no option then all you can do is make sure you're leads are all in correctly ( if you have a graphics card make sure it hasn't poped out of the motherboard slightly ) and then just keep trying matey.

I took out the heatsink from my fiance's computer and replaced it with a new, better heatsink and started having this problem. The computer will power on and all the fans are turning but the monitor stays in "sleep" mode it does not show anything.

One time, after the computer was on for a while the computer speaker beeped and the system booted, but after windows tried to boot the screen was all garbled and I had to restart the computer. Now it won't boot again, just a black screen.

Does anyone have any ideas?

A:Computer powers on, monitor is black

I can't possibly see why replacing the heatsink would have to do with the problem you are having - it is most likely a coincidence. Try reseating the video card. Have you changed any BIOS settings?

Hello Rux0r,

The only thing I can think of is that the disk tower is not connected to the monitor. There should be at least one cable running between the back of the monitor and the back of the disk tower. This is separate from the power cables.

I've plugged the monitors into the both the onboard graphics card as well as my Nvidia card in the AGP slot. I can't remember if I uninstalled the onboard graphics card.
The monitors turn on and say "No Video".
I've checked inside the PC and found no signs of damage. All fans are running properly.

my son has told me that our LG Studioworks 710s monitor suddenly shuts down while he's playing a game and the game is loading????

This requires a restart to fix each time it occurs.

I have had problems like this myself, but infrequently and usually when booting ....the monitor refuses to power up.

Usually I just unplug and plug back in and this fixes it.

We have a dedicated graphics card installed now, too.

I don't really know what else to add.

Can anyone troubleshoot this with me???

A:computer powers on but monitor recieves no signal

Just because the computer powers up, you should not assume it is actually booting up.

If it fails to boot to BIOS level at the start, the monitor will not show anything.

You can test to see if it is booting by trying the Caps Lock key, the Caps Lock light on the keyboard should on on and off in a cycle each press. If that does not happen, the problem lies in hardware, such as PSU, motherboard, CPU etc, but not in the software.

A:BSOD on fresh build

I can find no record of the BSODs in the files. That does not necessarily mean they didn't occur - just that they were not recorded.

Follow these instructions, then next time a BSOD occurs take a photo of it and post it here:


Go to START -> type view advanced system settings press enter -> Advanced -> Settings (under Startup and Recovery)

You should see a screen that looks like this -

Set the settings how I have them. Make sure Automatic Restart is unticked.

On the Drop-down with Small memory dump (256KB) in it select Kernel Memory Dump and check that that has the Directory set to %SystemRoot%\MEMORY.DMP. Make sure to set the drop down back to Small memory dump (256KB)

Then press OK.

Also go back a few windows, and instead of selecting Settings (under Startup and Recovery) select Settings (under Performance) -> Advanced -> Change (under virtual memory) -> make sure Automatically manage paging file size for all drives is ticked, then press OK.

Hi guys Been fighting with some issues on my freshly assembled PC I've gotten a TON of BSOD that I haven't been able to track the cause of myself The operating system is Windows x that's only about a week old with only essentials Fresh PC Multiple Build - BSOD installed All drivers programs up to Multiple BSOD - Fresh PC Build date System Specs Mobo AsRock DE U S ATX Processor AMD FX - Core Black Edition Memory GB Crucial O S Windows Ultimate Bit Graphics Zotac Nvidia GT GDDR H D Western Digital Caviar GP TB IntelliPower SATA Gb s P S Watt OZC Stealth xStream Multiple BSOD - Fresh PC Build I've compiled all my dump files HERE for viewing Rather new to these issues and was hoping to find the problem myself but I'm at a loss I've not really been able to 'force' a BSOD or find anything that exacerbates the problem It just seems to be more common when launching a program Not generally when idling or doing small tasks Here's a shot of the multiple BSOD's I've seen The most common one I see is memory management which I see multiple times a day at least

A:Multiple BSOD - Fresh PC Build


Most of the dumps come with Bugcheck 1A (Memory management).

Are the ram speed/clocks the same? Have you tried adjusting them?

Try that and take memtest in the following manner:

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Guide to using Memtest86+ - Geeks to Go Forums

The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.
Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.
If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.
If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.

Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

Hi there, new on these forums and after hours of searching I decided to put up my own thread to get help.
I have a freshly built custom PC and a Win 8.1 Pro OEM key.
I can download the installer using my key and I can download the installer using mediacreationtool.
I can also install those two with the key, but for some reason I cannot activate my windows with it.
It give the errorcode: 0xC004C003
I have tried reinstalling and using the phone activation but it just tells me it has failed and eventually hangs up.
Any ideas on what to do? Getting a bit desperate and considering on purchasing a new license.

Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone; I have a dell D630 that I started having problems with about 2 months ago, in the middle of normal functions vertical rows of small green bricks would appear, followed shortly by a crash. Then, I can power it back up but the screen will remain black. It lights up, the pixels are obviously functioning but it is black. Every once in a while it will work again but only for about 1-5 min and the green lines will come back.

This happened shortly after I had it outside during a construction project where it may have gotten some dust in it or something... I am guessing this is relevant?

I have tried blowing everything with a little keyboard cleaner air can, but that is all.

Any help would be great.

Hello and welcome to the forums toycar69!

Svchost processes are usually containers that represent a set of services that are currently running on your system.

In order to determine the exact services that are running havoc on your system with the high CPU usage, can you please download Process Explorer, extract the file using 7zip/WinRAR/Winzip, run it, and take a screenshot of the current processes on your system with the CPU usage sorted from highest to lowest when the problem occurs?

The 400w power supply has a 20 to 22 pin adapter, would this be causing my power problem?

A:Solved: Fresh build - Keeps powering off and other issues

The powering off sounds like a heat issue. Check for full contact between processor and heatsink. Also be sure you have used some kind of heatsink grease. It is easy sometimes to have a heatsink cocked up sideways just a few thousandths of an inch and cause overheating.

However...I plugged in my monitor to both DVI and VGA, and I'm not getting a signal. The monitor works fine, I played it on my Xbox 360 via HDMI, so I'm pretty sure that's not the problem.

But there is no image on my monitor...

Counterfeit installations such as yours contain heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analyzing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable. For this reason, many analysts won't attempt it.

My recommendation is to install a genuine Windows 7. This will minimize the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable. Once you are running a Genuine Windows 7 installation, and are still experiencing BSOD's, we will be happy to help you solve them

On loading Vista x64bit (fresh install) to the point where it is preparing to load up for the first time I'm suffering from a recurring BSOD where there is a 0x0000007E error memory crash dump, and continues to do this on start up.

I've run memtest, all memory is fine.

Any pointers appreciated.

Hello everyone.

I built a computer about a month ago and ever since the first attempt to install windows it has been giving me blue screens. The computer is working someone fine most of the time now, but still has a daily to twice a day blue screen error. I have done everything that google has said (Memtest, driver updates, HDD diagnostics, BIOS update, check registry, scan for virus, etc.) with no help. If anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciative.

Attached are the minidumps and system information. Thank you for your time.

A:Random BSOD's since fresh build. Error 0x0000001e.

Could you update your full system specs in your profile, please?

The last 3 BSODs you had - 2 were 1E errors caused by ntkrnlmp.exe and you had a 3B error caused by fltmgr.sys.

Could you uninstall AVG and install MSE for testing purposes, and also disable/uninstall AppleCharger as this can cause problems ( - The On/Off charge utility. Not the one for Intel 7 series).

Try running sfc /scannow, also if your motherboard has a parallel port, then disable it within the BIOS.

Hello, I've read a few of the other posts but haven't been able to get it to work on mine yet. I'm getting the "no signed drivers were found" error when trying to install windows 7 64 bit on my new build. I don't have an old one to format the hard drive and partition it on. So my question is can I build a partition outside of the install or inside of the install? When I switch to ACHI(AHCI) which every one it is, and I go into advanced installation it gives me the option for new partition but there are 0 MB available to do this with. I've put my comp specs into my profile. Thanks in advance for your help.

P.S. When my old desktop crashed I had a working laptop so I has been years since I've had a 2nd desktop to work with.

A:No signed drivers were found on fresh install new build.

Put the Dvd in the computer when you get to the screen where it asks you where you want to install Windows . Hold down Shift and press F10 . You will then have a command prompt Window and type in these commands

Press < ENTER > after every command







Then back in the Where to install Windows click on Refresh and you should see

Disk 0 Partition 1: Windows 7 C:

Highlight that and click on next .

If you don't want to use the entire hard drive you could type in CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY SIZE=51200 that will create a 50GB partition
