Not properly booting-up.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I turned on my computer today morning and everything booted up fine no problems, I go to type in my password and find that my computer has frozen, that alone Is something new. So I restart my computer and find that there is no connection happening between my computer and my screen. My computer starts up but nothing is displayed on the screen. I wasn't really sure where to post this but I thought it was a problem with my 8600GT so I posted it here. Any thoughts?

If you have another video card, try to boot up with that one.

I don't :\\, isn't there any other way of testing? Because my Video Card fan does work.

It could also be something silly, like the monitor's power cable is unplugged. But if the monitor is saying something like "No signal", then it could be the video card. Do you happen to have another monitor you can use, like an extra one, or a friend's monitor? I mean, if it were me, I'd try a different monitor if I had the ability to. Luckily for me, I have my 19" CRT monitor, and a friend of mine has a 17" CRT monitor I could borrow for an hour.

I'd suggest a different video card, but that'd be redundant since FieryCoD already suggested it.

But judging from your sig rig, you have no monitor, so that must be the problem! sorry. I couldn't resist.

Anyway, if that doesn't help, or if a new video card doesn't help, then I wish you luck as that would be out of my league!

I've tried another monitor and still no luck, normally when I boot up my computer my monitor's light turns to green and then displays "auto-adjusting screen". But whenever I try now it just stays Yellow indicating it's in Stand-By. I fear that it might be my video-card.

Have you tried clearing the CMOS yet?

Honestly those symptoms could be a lot of things.

Clearing CMOS as someone suggests is the first line of business.

If that doesn't work, you pretty much have to go about swapping parts until you figure out what it is. I'd do it in this order:

First off, disconnect everything not absolutely necessary to get a post. This includes removing any sound card and/or other peripherals (firewire, usb or internal slots) and disconnect all hard and optical drives from the mobo. Then try swapping:
1) Video Card
2) Memory (try each stick alone, and in various sockets)
3) Processor
4) PSU

If you still got nothing, then it's (likely) your mobo.
