PC will not post w/ monitor plugged in - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Have you tried plugging your monitor into a different circut? Might be that you have real old wireing that has a problem with the extra power requirement. Also if something like this is the issue have you tried turning the monitor on first and waiting for it to charge up?

For a recap of what I've tried in the last few days (thanks for all the advice so far!):

The following have all had no effect:
  • Different cable
  • Unplugging the monitor from the connection on the monitor, instead of the tower
  • Plugged the monitor into a different power strip & different outlet

Things I need to try still:
  • Swapping the video card out with a different one
  • Clearing the CMOS (I'll do this today) via jumper

It's going to be a real ***** to swap my video card however. I'm using Watercooling on my system atm, while my GPU is in the loop. So, I could swap it out with my wifes 8800GT while holding my card still connected to the loop, but out of the way. Or I could tear my loop down, and rebuild it while testing.

The first of those is scary, the second is a lot of work.

Thanks for all the help so far guys, rep all around.

Isn't the watercooling block for your vid card screwed on? Why would you need to hold it?

Good luck, and are you sure the monitor is on a different circut? and have you checked to make sure the curcut is not already under load? Just a recomendation that you check what kind of wireing you have: Modern, Knob and Tube, or Rag-Wire.

Not sure what you mean by that? How do I tell?

And an update:
  • Cleared CMOS with jumper (and battery, to be sure) did nothing
Unplugged the video card, and hit the power button, the following happened:
  • System beeps (telling me no video card is plugged in)
  • System started booting up, as it should
So, I don't have an extra PSU to test, so I had to use my PSU tester. It's a little gadget which I plug in the connections my PSU has into it, and lights appear if the voltage is correct. It however does not have a PCIE connection on it, so I wasn't able to check it, but all the other connections were fine.

I'm still a bit sceptical about wheather or not its my VC or Monitor though. As my PC boots, and functions just fine using a different monitor. *sighs*

Well if the problem goes away using a different monitor (I seemed to have missed that part in the OP) then its definitly the monitor. If it ALWAYS did that, it might just be incompatible with DVI-VGA conversions, but if it just started then your monitor is on the fritz...

My wife and I both have the same Proview monitors. and she's been complaining that it would randomly shut off at times, and she would be unable to get a it back on until she rebooted her PC. Well, I swapped our monitors around, and now my PC boots, and so does hers. But one thing is for sure:

Never buying ProView again.
