Computer Question

I am looking at a friends computer. The monitor onboard graphics hook up does not seem to be working. The monitor does not display anything and the cpu beeps. I am assuming the onboard display has went to crap.

I am recommending a PCI vid card... i would rather test one first before they buy though... i can get one cheap for like 26 bucks off new egg though. Anything else i should look at? Ive already reset the CMOS jumper.

Re: Computer Question

Sounds like a no-POST condition. I'll bet the problem is more than the onboard graphics.

Re: Computer Question

Beeps are either Memory, Processor, Video card. If the board is bad you would normally not get any beeps unless the Video card slot is bad or the memory is bad

Right. And the number of beeps will tell you roughly what the issue is. I don't remember them all right now, but there are sources on this interweb thingy that I used to figure it out. I would check them out and see what they say about the beeping you are getting.

Re: Computer Question

I'd just go with the PCI video card may not be the correct way of doing thing But it's the simple solution
