Hey guys, (I'm posting this from my laptop.) My deskop PC powers on fine, and the screen turns on fine, but nothing actually appears on the screen. I plugged the screen into my laptop and it works fine so it must be something wrong with the PC. Has this happened to anyone or does anyone have an advice. And yes, the plugs are plugged in correctly lol. I have also opened it up and the video card is in its slot fine.
Doesn't sound like an OS problem as you should still get something on the screen when you reboot. If you are getting some text on the screen but windows isn't loading (I'm assuming you are using windows) then try the F8 key and choosing "Last known good configuration". You can also try pressing this key repeatedly after the system reboots and see if it brings up the recovery screen, but that is a long shot.
More likely the problem is with your video card though. If you haven't made any changes to the settings recently (via BIOS or via the OS) then the sudden loss of video will normally mean a malfuntioning video card (seeing as you have already checked the connections).
If you have another desktop try moving the card to that one and see if the problem persists (or try a friends computer).
Hope it is only settings.
Yeh, I use windows but nothing at all comes up on the screen. Not even that screen that asks if I can boot into safe mode. Ahwell thanks anyway...
Check the video card. If it's an onboard video card, try using a different video card.
If it's not an onboard one, remove it from your computer and put it back in.
See if that works.
Resolved. Hogwarts helped me on MSN. Now I'm stuck with an old video card, very very, old.
