Hey All,

So a few months ago I started having an issue where I would turn my PC on and it would turn on and I could see the kybd and mouse LEDs turn on but nothing would appear on my Monitor. I checked the serial cables and everything seemed fine.

I rebooted a few times and then I would finally get visual.

This happened often. In heinsight the PC also froze a few times playing FFXIV:ARR. I ran a Antivirus scan and my PC reboot so I thought maybe it was i/o or RAM. So I took out a stick of RAM (1/3, all 4GB each). The issue seemed to have gone away but it started again last week and I took out another stick and the issue stopped until last night. I do not power off all that much so maybe that is why it seemed to have been fixed but maybe it really wasn't.

Could the underlining issue be something other than bad RAM? The sticks are roughly 2 or 3 years old and are Corsair.  The PC is same age as RAM so roughly 2 or 3 years and the MB is a Gigabyte.

Any suggestions would be great,

I just started getting the same issue as you.  I would start my computer and see the bios screen then it will go dark during the os loading and not display anything until I cycle the power button on my monitor.  I'm not sure what the problem is.

Most of the times is RAM but yes could be something else as well like, Motherboard fault (worst scenario), PSU or even hard disk problem.

Remove all the memories and unplug the hard drives from the motherboard , then swich on your pc. If it is RAM problem then you should get an error and the bipper sound if there is one.

 If the same problem is happening without any RAM and HDD on your motherboard then u must start worrying for your motherboard. 

EDIT: If there is no bipper on you motherboard u wont be able to know if the motherboard warning for not RAM installed.

Do you have a dedicated graphics card?

And verify if your drivers are up to date, and also if your power suply it's giving enogh voltage

Yeah I only have 1 graphics card and the drivers are up to date. Not sure how to check if my Power Supply is giving enough Voltage though.

I do not see any posting, no bios information..nothing.

Hi,

 

To see power watage should be a label on the side of the PSU, and then when you found it I would lookup the graphicscards needs to get a rough idea if its enough.

 

The screen is it black with lightbleeding or is it standby like it cannot find the source (graphics card) and go in standby then you should see no light bleeding.

I would also try put on the computer first then the monitor after some seconds.

 

 

The memory 3 sticks could give a problem if 2 are a kit and one is seperate.

If your mainbord has a MEMOK button you could press it to let it scan the memory.

 

But I dont realy believe its that because then it should give beep sounds from the mainboard if it cause it not to start.

Up date bios - update all software.

Dont use a cheap PSU.

Make sure your case is dustfree.

Dont pull out devices in your case while powercord still plugged.

 

Don't stick with old OS install  format and clean install from time to time at least ones a year as minimum.

Good luck.

If you are using Windows 8, I would say "weather the storm." I got brand new computer components and I get the same result as you, I'm even able to catch a culprit sometimes 

CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION

or something along those lines.  Windows 8 (which I'm assuming you have like me lol...) is just broken at its core and they are still band-aiding it.

Had this happen in an older pc before.  Turned out it's power supply was the fault.  Fans would run, keyboard lit up and mouse lit up but wouldn't boot.

Sounds odd windows 8.1 if the problem started months ago.

 

I think its a source problem. I have windows 8.1 and it runs great only not for some games that use xtrap or such then it gets critical error and restart my pc .

 

With my Dell monitor I need to put pc on first then monitor or it go off and cannot find the source

Not sure what kind of graphics card you have but if its Nvidia this may help. Apparently none of Nvidia's new drivers are optimized for any graphics card pre mid 600 series. I was having this exact problem when I started running their new drivers for BF4. If you have a pre 650 card I would suggest downloading the 314.22 drivers and then doing a complete wipe of your current drivers. Install 314.22 and you should be fine. I haven't had a problem since I did so.

Bad motherboard. Motherboards fail more often than memory.

If you're not even getting the computer to POST, then video drivers aren't the culprit, as that's before drivers get loaded.

I'd try reseating some things:  unplug cables and cards and so forth and plug them back in.  Switch to a different monitor port, different PCI Express slot, different power supply plugs, and so forth if you can, and see if that makes any difference.

Actually, how about if you post your complete system specs?

Some times it is a matter of the faulty part working until it reaches a specific heat range, then it just dies!

If you have a second computer or laptop that you can plug the monitor in to, you will be able to check if it is the monitor!

If it is a gfx card issue, switch to another one.

I had the same issue you're having right now, it is the motherboard. Sometimes when a motherboard has a short or a bad chip it mind cause these kind of issues.

he said the computer was startign up but not posting anythign to the monitor its the gfx card it sounds like its going out bets bet is maybe fidn a cheapy 1 and see if it post as soon as you add it or something or just say f it and buy  a newer card to start another build.

if it was the mother board the pc wouldnt even boot up not just not show a picture
