Packard Bell Club Video problem

By kcarter ·
I have a problem with a Packard Bell Club video card, this PC has run without problem for over a year now, suddenly a video fault develops which stops any video from appearing on screen, I have done all the usual stuff ie...
Changed Cards... Removed any other PCI carde such as network card etc, removed memory for beep test, checked all connections to motherboard, removed one by one all the connections to CD Rom, Floppy, etc but still get no activity on Video.

Can anyone suggest what to try next ???

Have you verified that the monitor is working properly and that you have a good connection? What is the color of the indicator lights on the monitor? Hope this helps.

thanks, tried, this too, the fault seems to be within the PC itself, there is no video activity at all the light is orange on the monitor, I have tried other monitors, but nothing has helped get video back on.

If the monitor is working properly then I would try installing another video card or try resating the memory

Can't do that either, as there is no video to get started in the install of a new card to begin with... I cant turn off the on board card to get to install a PCI card.

No activity on the video tube? Does the video power up?

I'd recommend that you try another monitor in place on this one or move this monitor to another machine and see if the problem follows the monitor.

A blank screen or a dead monitor is usually a problem with the monitor itself. Video card problems will manifest themselves in lines through the display, discolorations, or resolution difficulties.

What OS are you using?

We just ran across the same thing -- user had changed the resolution to 1200 x 1600 or essentially something our monitors cannot handle. See if you can boot to safe mode and get the video settings back to reasonable attributes.

Thanks anna, I will see if I can get it to boot up at all again, this one is a mystry to me, because there is no video at all I can't make any changes simply because I can't see what I am doing, someone suggested that the mother board is goosed, I think they may be right. I will advise though, thanks again.
