I was replacing older hardware with newer hardware. So as i turn on my PC nothing shows up on the monitor due to all the changes, so i decided to reset the BIOS which i think i did it successfully for i moved the jumper to the reset cmos and i saw an instant flash in the motherboard. Now everything is inserted properly and the fan in spinning and everything runs inside the pc but how do i view the monitor i get no signal but I'm sure i did everything right?

:welcome: to Bleeping Computer Leighton :)

 

2 things you might want to check first. Video card and onboard video (builtin chip) and RAM sticks not compatible/faulty and not inserted properly.

Please post the computer brand or motherboard model and changes for a more definite solution to your problem next time.

Oh sorry everything is plugged in properly and nothing is faulty for i changed a video card and that's what started all this trouble, also i have no beep noise when the pc starts.

 

Before i made changes i had:

JW-H67M-USB3 motherboard

8GB RAM

Onboard Graphics

3V CR2032 Newsun Battery

 

After upgrade:

12GB RAM

ATI Radeon HD 5450 Graphics card

3V CR2032 Lithium Battery (brand new never used)

Try removing the video card and use the onboard graphics alternately with a stick of RAM if more than 2 are currently being used.

Could be that your BIOS is set to use integrated graphics and it's not seeing the video card. Easy way to troubleshoot is to plug your monitor into the onboard video that's built into the motherboard. Does the screen come on then? If so, then go into your BIOS and see if you can find a section dedicated to video/graphics. Once you find the section, see if there's a way to change from onboard to pci-e. Once that's done, then save the changes by pressing F10 and then choose yes. After that, then try to connect your monitor to your video card and see if your screen comes on.

If all that fails then try taking the computer back to how it was before the upgrade. Test, if it works do one change at a time to pin down the problem.

 

Good Luck

I believe this is whats happened although maybe the graphics drivers are not there or something, i have always used my graphics card which is fine and then i switched to onboard to try it out which worked fine. As i switched back to the graphics card it wouldn't start up, now both the onboard or the graphics card don't display anything.

Yes i have tried that, but i get no beeps and nothing changes even with the minimum specs.

Have you tried resetting the BIOS once more to see if it will load the defaults?

Well with my JW-H67M-USB3 motherboard i noticed there's only two pins in the cmos reset bit and there's usually three in most motherboards, so there's a good chance it hasn't fully reset. Although even with two pins i put the jumper on them and wait five minutes then take it off and power it up. Is there a guide for a two pin mobo or something, maybe i missed something?

The jumper will reset it, but you should have a cmos battery that you should take out of the motherboard as well.
