I have just finished putting my computer together. I was all excited that it was done. I turned the computer on and everything runs, the fans lights etc. but there is no display. I know its not the ram because i just replaced it with some that i know works. Could it be the video card. I am really pissed that the thing isnt working. Help me please
Trouble shooting questions: (Laugh if you want, but these things do happen!)
1) Is the monitor plugged in to the wall and computer?
2) Is the monitor turned on?
3) Have you checked for bent pins on the monitor?
4) Does the computer work with another monitor?
5) Have you shut off the power and waited a while? (I have a video card that cannot handle reboots. I don't know why, it just can't.)

Just three days ago i used my pc betterly, but now it had a problem. When i start it then no screen was appeared. I checked ram, graphics card, & also monitor plug. There was no problem. I don't know what from the problem appear. If any one help me about that matter then i'll be thanksfull to him/her.
A component in the computer (such as a graphics card) may have overheated. In older computers, the fans were very powerful (remember the loud computers of yesteryears?). Now the manufacturers assume that computers sit in air-conditioned comfort all day. So they have reduced the power of these fans that are used to cool the hardware. Follow these procedures to see if that is the problem.
a. Shut down your computer and monitor.
b. Turn on the air-conditioning and install an additional fan in the room if possible
c. After a pause of 15 - 30 minutes, restart the monitor and then the computer.
d. If it was a problem of overheating, the computer screen should now show the system booting normally.
Its so simple just try putting external graphics card.. whether it is compatible of an AGP or PCI slot.. but I think computer nowadays has an AGP slot in it, so there you go, after installing the VGA card, try turning it on, and wait for result.
if the monitor wire is connected to the UPS (if you have) and if there is some low voltage in the UPS, you may experience the same. also, do check your graphic card. no need to check the ram, its something to do with the power supply to the monitor.
My onboard vga in not working so my monitor is not coming on. What else can I use for monitor display despite the VGA Graphic cards which is expensive. Is there a plug in display card that I can slot in the PCI slot on the mother board.
