Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:


There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

Be sure to use the voting buttons to provide your feedback. Voting a '+' does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer". .

But in the mean time remove the Video Card and refit it. If you have a Crossfire setup remove Both Video Cards and refit them.

Really you should use a Monitor designed for Computers as they have a much more dense display than a TV does so if you what clarity you'll get it better with a Computer Monitor over a TV.

If the Video Card has a Power Plug on it make sure that you have a Power Lead connected to it.

The main thing is particularly after a move the case can flex and slightly pull the Video Card out of the socket making it no longer connect, the solution in that case is to remove the Video Card and refit and it should work again.

Does the display work on another PC?

by NickNielsen In reply to No display on monitor :((

You say another monitor has no display, so the problem is most likely with your PC. Try reseating your display adapter.

If your PC used to beep after POST (initial start), but does not beep now, the problem could be the power supply, the mainboard, the memory, or the processor.

Otherwise, try reseating the display adapter.

Check the mainboard

by NickNielsen In reply to no display

The tops of the capacitors (the cans standing on end) should all be flat or slightly concave. If any of them have bulged out or leaked, you will need to replace the mainboard. Otherwise, I would suspect the power supply.
