  1. Hi all

    I just bought this computer a year ago and it has caused me a bit of trouble.

    When i turn the computer on , the fans come on , but nothing appears on the screen it says "no signal" and theres no usual "beep" sound that i use to hear on my computer when it turns on. PLZ HELP! I'm pretty sure theres something wrong with the motherboard or my processor.

    this is my computers specs:

    Asus P5LD2-Se Motherboard
    1 Gig DDR PC2-5300
    ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro Graphics Card
    Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 @ 2.00 GHZ Processor
    PSU @ 250 volts

    Plz help , Thanks a million!:)

    It's time to take it in to a repair shop and let them fix it... It could be a bad motherboard or something simpler

    It won't be the motherboard battery because you could use a computer without one, the time would just be wrong though.

    I think it could be the motherboard that's dead because if any other components was dead there would usually be a error on screen or if the GFX card was dead there would be beep codes.

    Just make sure all the components are securely fitted into the correct sockets, e.g the 24pin and 12v power cables, the memory.

    Have you been inside the PC recently, if you have somehow managed to cause a static discharge on any of the components you might not have seen any problem at first but could have caused long term damage. The components might not have failed for months but suddenly now they have, it can happen!
