Sorry but are you saying your monitor is not working?

Have you tried the monitor on another PC?

are you saying that your monitor is showing 'power saving mode' or 'standby'?.

If it is, then that usually means the devices still have power to them, but are in hibernation or waiting for further working action. Some people want this, because it saves time, others might considerer this is a waste of energy and a possible safety risk?.

Hi, Ya I tried my monitor with anthoer CPU it worked there not only this I have removed the CMOS battery and checked and removed one off the RAM slot and checked but also no use of it.

It looks as though you might have a problem with the video output from your PC which as you do not have a separate graphics card could mean a motherboard problem.

Can you either plug another monitor into this system or connect your TV and see if you are getting any output?

ya I have checked through connecting my cpu to another monitor with another VGA cable its showing again power saving mode and, I have checked with my SMPS also by connecting to another PC it worked there(means SMPS worked),but CPU is running how can we say that motherboard is having some problem so could you suggest any other way for this problem

Thanks for the reply Chronos

Hi Chronos,

6000INR is around £65. And you will struggle to get DDR5 for that amount.But I will have a look.

Nvidia DDR 3.
