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

I know what he said, and you should read what I said, geez you just don't know how to read. Motherboard problems could cause all sorts of problems with different components of hardware, and the PC would still work but it will have malfunctions. With my Gigabyte motherboard I had the same issues OP is having, with one of the graphic cards that I have it told me I had no signal on the monitor, when I changed to a different card it work fine for a month and then started to give me the same issue. AND yes I was able to still use BIOS and see the boot posts. After I switched that Gigabyte motherboard and changed to AsRock motherboard and used the same card that I first had used with the previous board, everything worked without any hitches.

I'm tech and I've been dealing with PCs for 16 years now, I've seem all sorts of things happen with PCs, things that others haven't even heard of before. I learned the hard way "Hands on" as they say. Also, @ OP, don't buy cheap parts for PC, spend $100 more and get better parts that are more expensive, because right now "you get, what you pay for". The more the part costs the longer it will last and more stable it will be.

OP, do this every time you go to turn your PC on from now on.

Turn your monitor on first. You should get something showing on your monitor about no input. This will tell you that your monitor is ready to receive a signal from the PC.

Now, turn your PC on and keep your eyes on your monitor.

Within just a few seconds you should see SOMETHING change on the monitor, the black getting a little lighter at least. If it DOES get this, it is receiving a signal.

Now, watch for the motherboards bios splash screen. If you get this, your video card IS sending a signal which means your card is fine and its another problem. If you do NOT see this, or at least the PC makers splash screen (Dell, Compaq, Acer) then it means you are having Video Card issues and odds are, its starting to go out on you.

Its simple. Your video card driver loads when Windows is starting to load. The initial motherboard and maker splash screens are basic signals being sent through your card, any card can display them and thus not require a driver. Being able to see these screens will tell you if its a card or driver issue.

It should not be anything else causing this. As you stated before, your system was giving you problems while playing FFXIv with locking up and rebooting, odds are it overheated your card and perhaps to the point of damaging it. Same thing happened to my nephew, the game kept overheating his card and it eventually went out on him.

The reason why it isn't a cord connection issue is due to the randomness of it, if it was a loose cord, it would go out just by wiggling it. And for a power issue, Power issues aren't random, the moment you start getting power issues, you have it until its fixed. It wont fluctuate. Since its happening even just when turning your PC on, it cant be due to your card drawing too much power to cool itself off.

My money is on a dying card.

Nope, it's not Windows 8.

It's highly likely it's bad hardware, but not necessarily. Hard to say what though - that's a classic sign of "time to buy new computer". It could be as simple as a loose video cable.

Some Mobos have options to turn off any POST output so all you see is the windows loading screen. I would suggest the OP goes into the BIOS (if he can get it display on screen) and make sure POST info is enabled to display.

To narrow the problem down,   first take out your video card, and try booting the computer with the onboard video connected.

 

If you dont expierance the same issue then you found the problem.

reset your cmos. I fixed my brothers computer the same way. Turned out the timing for his ram somehow get messed up. his computer would whirl on, not post and the monitor wouldnt turn out. Read the post errors on his mobo and it indicated ram issues. I reset his cmos for him, and presto...worked perfectly.

I agree with this guy, try with the onboard video first.

Post the model of your graphic card

And how much watts your power supply have?

The adult I am takes care of most things real life. However my inner-child is a GAMER!!

A few months ago I had the same issue. Already did what a few here suggested in this topic.

Like OP my system started but nothing on screen. Also removed HD's, soundcard etc....still everything light up on power.

Then I removed my Ram and placed it back, still same issue with was no signal on my monitor. Then tried putting only 1 bar Ram in and then it worked again.

In between I phoned and been to several computer stores to ask for advice before I found the issue myself and they all said the same thing it's either my motherboard or my graphics card. So I am very glad I didn't bring my system to one of those stores because I am almost sure they would have sticked with replacing my motherboard or graphics card.

Bought a complete new set of RAM and my system connects great again with my monitor.

Now I am not saying it can not be OP's motherboard or graphics card but if it's like he said everything seems to start except his monitor it's seems more likely to be a similar issue I had. And oh I also replace my ram often every 2 years. This was the first time I neglected it somewhat to 3 years already.

from the sound of it, it seems the problem is either his ram, or his mobo, hopefully its just the ram, as its cheap to replace. But there is a free program that can verify whether your ram is working properly, its called prime95, it has a torture test option that verifies the integrity of the cpu and the ram, or just the cpu, by generating long string prime numbers, which is hard work on the CPU/RAM and if any errors are generated, then there is a problem. Its a good tool to test out any new build too as it will not only verify your cpu/ram but also a test of how well your PC can handle heat generation from these components.

The problem here is that this particular problem could be any of a number of things.

It could be RAM. It could be the motherboard. It could be a bad video card. It could be three - with a bad power supply that fried both (and any replacement you get will work fine until it fries those too). It could just be a loose cable, or a stray screw, or a failing monitor.

There's no way of knowing without testing all the components.

Just because "You fixed a friends computer" or "You had a computer that did this" doesn't mean that what was wrong with your computer is wrong with this one.

He either needs to do a lot of troubleshooting to isolate the problem, take it in and have it looked at by someone he trusts, or just bite the bullet and replace it.

Have you tried unplugging either or both power to the monitor and the cable to the monitor.

I get this sometimes and thats the fix.

I build my pc's for years now nvidia and amd and ive almost np at all.

No knowledge of hardware and software(main couse of problems) faulty use of pc no maintenance from time to time cheap parts.

Miss use of internet click all links download crap visit vicious sites get all kinds of virus malware.

Its not a console guys, PC needs more knowledge, then pushing a button and play:P

Do some research before buying a PC it will safe you alot of trouble.

It could also be software related no updates no bios update a install few years old its not always hardware related.
