My monitor has no display at all - Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop


Answers :

Very incomplete thread..i gotta know 1st what is ur system configuration..is all ur system is getting power on..is there any light on cabinet glowing (the power n hdd)..is there is power light coming on ur monitor..is there any sound coming out of the system..or the set is dead..??..

considering that the system gets on but u get no display and assuming that the bios has not been flashed in a wrong\015\012way..

probably itz either minor case of loose ram/improper\015\012ground/cmos battery..
or major case of faulty or defective smps/cpu/main board short/display adapter or card/monitor

..plz do check the following as in order:..

1) in power on mode, open/unplug the data/vga cable of the monitor from cabinet..see if raster or 'osd' is appearing on the monitor screen..if so monitor is ok..else replace the monitor and see..

2) if u hv a graphics card, replace with a standby or onboard and see..

3) see if the ram(s) is loose/faulty..open clean/remove carbon & or oxide formed on the teeth with an eraser n resit it..or replace with a standby n see..

4) unplug mains supply..pick open/remove the cmos battery..check (above +3v)..resit..

5)\015\012remove/clean dust neatly..dust is non-uniform in nature n may cause\015\012jam/short circuitry/excess resistace n many more..resulting an increase\015\012in heat..

6) open the CPU Heat-Sink with fan out of the socket..put some "Heat Sink\015\012Compound" (available in local electronics chip level spare market)\015\012between the cpu/processor and the CPU Heat Sink *** fan..resit/fit it\015\012tightly in position..

7) the smps itself may b defective/faulty..check the outputs of smps\015\012viz. 0v (black~ground); +12v (yellow); +5v (red, green~ps-on, violet~pg\015\012& grey~sb); -12v (blue); -5v(white); +3.3v(orange)..
\015\012the 'oscillator and error amplifier ic', or\015\012pwm switching regulator circuit..look for defective\015\012protector-transformer/resistance(esp 4.7k)/mosfet..
\015\012
\015\0128) if\015\012itz not the smps, then it must b ur main/mother board..see with a debug\015\012card for mb error..may b short..look for defective capacitors(esp above\015\0121000mfd)/mosfets..go through the mb's south bridge n the circuit lie\015\012around atx connector..the crystal clock generator (if cpu isn't heating up)....
\015\012
always better to seek advise from ur system admin/vendor....
Ok no display? are you saying that the screen is black and reading no signal? if so you will need a new video card. this will give you your display back.
