Occasionally no display on start up

  Danmatjac 18:58 15 Jan 2017

Hey guys, looking for some help on something that is driving me mad! Turn my pc on and there is no display. (not a new build, not and incorrectly installed cpu etc) There are no beeps and this is the part that gets me, sometimes it works perfectly fine, other times there will be no display, I'll turn off and on again and it will work. The frustration comes at times when I simply can not get a display of any kind.

I have tried multiple outputs, cables and both hdmi and dvi. Also different gpu's.

Then the pc will come on and work there are no issues and everything works great.

Please let me know if any further details will help.

Have you checked the power supply? Have you tried the monitor on another PC?

Hi, thanks for your reply.

I have recently installed a brand new PSU but I had this issue with the previous one too. The issue happens on any monitor or TV connected.

Have you checked to see if your RAM are seated properly?

Hi all, thanks for your replies. Took the whole system apart last night and rebuilt, no luck. Tested with no ram and I get the beeps to signal there is no ram. Sometimes it comes on fine, other times no display, no bios, nothing. When there is no display, all fans, gpu, hdd etc power on.

Have you tried plugging in the monitor to the on-board graphics port? Have you updated the driver to your video card or if this is a recent occurrence after updates have you tried rolling back your driver.

Drivers are always kept up to date and this has been occurring for a while, seeming to progressively get worse. No on board graphics on the mobo unfortunately.

Plug 100% working cable and see what happens.

Hi all. I am hoping to borrow a friends pc with a similar build to test all of my components, also to test their components on my mobo. Ill also try my system in another case just to eliminate any possible issues there.

If I still have no luck but my other components work when attached to another mobo then im going to settle that this is a mobo issue. so onto my next question...

I will need a new mobo! Being January and not at all planning to buy anything new I will be on a serious budget, I realise ill probably have to downgrade from my current mobo but if it isn't working, I guess anything would be an upgrade.

Any suggestions? Ill have around £50.
