rebooting 6x to get monitor keyboard up

By thegerenas ·
I have a pc that just recently started acting up.When I turn it on I can hear the pc running but no pic on the monitor and my keyboard flickers once ,when before, it would have the number lock light on at start up. I shut it on and off about five toten times and then it finally boots normally. It isn't the monitor I'm sure, and I swapped out the keyboard. BIOS problem? I'm fairly new at PC repair and would appreciate any suggestions.

Thx.

Make sure that the cards are firmly seated in their slots.
Double check the video card.

Check that the memory, drive cables, and power supply connectors are properly seated.

If the PC uses SIMM memory, check that the plating on the SIMM pins,and the sockets are the same. (tin (silver) or gold)

Clean out the dust, and make sure that the fan in the PS spins freely.

You may have a power supply that is starting to fail.

The best answer is to listen to the computer. Most computers will beep once quickly on startup. If you get nothing, you most likely have a loose cable. If you get a long and three shorts(or something like that, I believe), it's a video problem. Other than that, there are sites out there that will tell you what the beep codes are for your specific Motherboard.

I had a similar problem on a computer the other day, it proved to a bios problem. I taken out the cmos batteries switched the computer on then off replaced the batteries turned the computer back on then set the bios back up and have had no problems since. Hope this is help full.
