PC Not Displaying Anything on the Screen

  miah9303 11:21 06 Jun 2018

Can someone please help. My PC for some reason has stopped working. When I press the power button on my tower I can hear the fans starting to run but nothing appears on the monitor, not even the bios screen. I have tried using a different GPU and a different monitor but to no avail. Before this happened the Pc used to do this occasionally but after turning it off and on again it would work. Help would be appreciated.

Do you get a POST Beep?

What about the Power Supply? A failing Supply frequently gives enough to run the fans but not the Graphics Card.

Have you tried it using the On-Board Graphics

Thanks but I forgot to mention, I have tried that.

item 1, 2 or 3?

I would strongly suspect a failing PSU

Hi, yes I have tried using another power supply and have also tested the new power supply using a power supply tester. I have also tried using the internal graphics card.

No I do not get any bleeps.

Check that your RAM sticks have not come loose. Take 'em out and put them back.

Worth a watch

Problem solved! I have finally got the problem resolved. It was in fact the psu but for some reason when I tried it with a different psu before it didnt make any difference. Thanks anyway guys.
