  1. Well i was unsure were to post this, seeing As i am new to this sight. Well my problem is I hook up my PC to the monitor and turn it on, Well it turns on but nothing will display. I am use the default on board video but to no luck. I changed out the ram did no good. I checked to make sure all my cables and cards are set in firmly I am fairly good with PC's but this thing has me at a lose, any help will be appreciated,

    Hey pal, I guess it's about RAM. Make sure that you put a supported type of memory. Also did you try to test your pc with a different monitor? (rent one from your friend or something) ;)

    Hi Powerman,

    I'd suggest running through this guide and see if it helps in any way. Sounds as if your computer isn't POSTing (from what I can gather in your thread)

    Thanks snowchick7669 but...

    your guide was awesome, but it did not help much when it came to my problem for i have already done all of those things. But I got it to at least give me some beep-codes so i looked them up for my MB and it seems to be a RAM issue. So i took the RAM out one by one and test both of them. But I still get the Beep-codes. The odds of both of the RAM sticks going bad is unlikely, So i am guessing the memory modals on my MB went out. But i would like to thank You for you help, seems like there is some one out there with some knowledge. I will try a few more things to see if it works and post it if it dose.

    That can happen especially if you have a power surge/power spikes. Wasn't sure what steps you had gone through when diagnosing the no POST situation, so I'm sorry that you had already covered that ground.

    Good troubleshooting :)
