Having problems with your Toshiba PC Desktops ?

Blank, black screen computer turns on, but the screen remains black. can hear the cpu running but cant see anything


Answers :

This looks to be in the category of being a desktop so my answer would be that the video card has gone bad. I would either take the computer to a qualified repair person or you can troubleshoot this yourself by buying a new video card and putting it into your computer and testing it.

If you are thinking of doing it yourself you should look at this tutorial http://www.heatonresearch.com/articles/25/page2.html
Make sure your have the plugs in the right place. There will be 2 coming from your monitor. One in ac wall outlet and one 15 pin male that goes into the back of your computer into the video. If your using the on board video or even a video card it may be that it's bad. Are you sure the monitor works.
\015\012If you have some spare memory sticks try changing the memory first. No video is usually first sign of bad memory. Video cards are second.
\015\012Cpu running is a good thing. Narrows down pretty much to memory, monitor or bad video card.
