Hey,

We are having trouble with the HP Media Center PC m7270.uk

When we turn the PC on with all peripherals connected (including monitor) and it comes up with the ‘No Signal’ message on the screen.

We have tried everything:
* Different Monitor
* Monitor on Different PC

Where can I get the same Graphics Card? And will it work?

Please can you help?

Thanks

I would try removing all of the peripherals and see if it boots up. If it does, try adding them back, one at a time, until you find the culprit.

The problem can be caused by a few things, including bad RAM, bad processor (not usually) or a bad motherboard.


Good luck.

Do you hear the POST "beep" indicating a normal equipment test, then see drive activity loading the Operating System? Do you hear a Windows system startup sound? These clues can help work out what seems to be happening.

If you hear no beep and get no drive activity, then you'd need to follow rigacci's suggestion of removing components until you get the system to boot.

If you get a POST beep and Windows loads, then you may have a faulty video card, or if the system has a video card added over on-board video, the on-board may have become enabled and is conflicting with the card, or the display is on the on-board VGA connector.

Well...what were the results of these "trials" you did?

Did the monitor work on another system?

Did a different monitor work on your current system?

In my experience, the "no signal" is a connection problem. Did you check those?

Thanks for all the replys!

We have bought a new Graphics Card and it now works.
