If you are trying to turn system on after a long time, then you can come across to some of these errors.


Remove the RAM, clean in and put it back again. Most of the time it works.


If above does not work then


  1. Check your power settings
  2. Remove and reseat video card
  3. Connect monitor on motherboard video ports and check.
  4. Go to BIOS, change the sleep settings to S3.



Hope this works, please reply.
