    PC Hardware problem

    Locked

    by dilumd ·

    The problem in this particular pc is that display is not coming. It shows nothing on the monitor. I connect another working monitor but the result also same.

    When I check booting, I notice that booting is ok but display is not coming. Im using Foxconn motherboard with on-board VGA. I remove memory stick to check whether M/B will detect it, Yes M/B detects that memory stick is not there.

    When I touched one of IC’s in the motherboard, it is so hot. I think motherboard is partially working.

    Are there anymore steps to check this problem (check this Motherboard) ?

      The motherboard goes into the dumpster.

      Where you are, I don’t know.

          He thinks your MB is broken and should throw it out. That’s what He’d do where he is.

          But he doesn’t know if that’s what you would do where you are.

          I tried — I truly tried — to be simple and direct.

          Maybe in Sri Lanka they don’t have, “dumpsters”. Cultural thing, I guess.

          I think also that nearby is where they disassemble beached ships, like very big motherboards.

          I just asked what i couldn’t understand. Don’t take this as funny. This is a language problem.

          My mother-language is not English. It’s Sinhala. We live in a environment that almost all the people speaks Sinhala not English.

          But somehow we learn English and dealing with world. Please don’t take this as funny.

          You shouldn’t take it to heart. It is just light humor. In our lives, we have to smile about something.

          Heavens, no. A transition from Sinhala to English is a marvelous thing to me.

      It looks like you have narrowed it down

      Enough to say your on-board VGA is broken.
      If you suspect your computer is overheating, then you should replace your hardware and log in to check the temperature. Perhaps you have faulty fans?

      Another way is you can put in a video card and test the monitor works.

      Good luck.

      This is wrong and sounds very much like a Chip Set failure of the M’Board, though if it has a NVidia Video Chip Set it is possible that this is one of those faulty designed NVidia Chips.

      Depending on which model M’Board you have you can find a suitable Video Card to a unused Slot so if this has a AGP or PCI Express Slot available you can fit one of those type Video Cards which will give you better performance anyway or just fit a straight PCI Video Card though these are a bit hard to come by these days new at least though there should be plenty of Second Hand ones available.

      That will get things working again if that is what you want to do but you should be looking at replacing the M’Board in the short term rather than waiting till it fails completely. I personally use Gigabyte M’Boards now and find that they are the most reliable ones currently available. if that is of any help. 😉
