Cpu is on but no display

Recommended Posts

So i have been encountering this problem for quite some time now.

One day my pc will be fine and working perfectly.

The next day, when i turn my cpu on, all lights are on and the fans are spinning but no display.

Earlier i used to reset BIOS by removing CMOS or move my ram stick around a bit and it fixed it.

But now it doesn't seem to help.

One new thing i noticed, is that my gpu fan spins for sometimes while booting and stops. I guess that's the reason for no display?

My specs:

Motherboard: msi b350

Processor: amd ryzen 5 1600

Gpu: gtx 1060 6gb

Ram: 8gb corsair vengeance

PSU: Corsair x350

I was playing Rise of the Tomb Raider a while ago and i had to restart my pc cuz the game kept crashing showing some error for my display. Then i switched to Rainbow Six Siege and the game crashed again on launch. When i tried to restart, my pc shut down but won't turn back on. Again the cpu is running, with no display.

Any help?

The GFX card spins down because the GPU is not running hot. This is normal behaviour.

 

Check your RAM with memtest. One stick could be bad.

 

What are the temps like for your CPU and GPU?

 

Is your CPU bottlenecking? Check in Task Manager.

Hey. So what i did is remove the gpu and rub the gold pins with an eraser. Put it back in and now there is display.

I read that as it is now working, he has a display?

Yeah, for now. I'd stress test it with games, though. See how it behaves under stress.

Seems to be working fine. Played a total of 12 hours i guess. No problems yet

I found the tip of using an eraser while searchinff ways to clean a ram stick. Tried it with the gpu and it worked

How did you come to the conclusion that he might have bricked it, if he states it is now displaying? Bricking something means its dead. This is an old school trick, possibly before your time.

Just the old school way of cleaning contacts when you didn't have spray contact cleaner handy like deoxIT.
