Every time i turn on my pc i find moniter lights blinking there is no display . i have to press ctrl+alt+del every time just as when my computer is on after restart there is no problem. if i plug out my gpu there is no such problem but i dont wanna do that . i am a gamer ,how can i live without gpu? anybody has got any idea what could be the reason for this . hellllp.....
I'm wondering how old your equipment might be (CRT monitor?). If the system isn't detecting the monitor (because it isn't powered on yet) it could cause a POST / Boot-up error. I used to see this with computers years ago.
These days, I can boot my PC and turn on my LCD monitor later without a hitch. As Emperus suggested, I'd try turning the monitor on first.
i am using samsung lcd 17 inch moniter . i think my gpu is old (8600gt)512 mb that could be the reason because its manual read designed for windows vista . when i was using vista no such problem happened but vista is a failed os . i was thinking for an upgrade to windows 7 but everybody says nothing performs faster than xp this is why i am still stuck to xp . i have experienced on my friend computer that windows 7 is faster but even he agreed xp is still fastest windows . i am currently stuck to old hardware i have plans to install windows 7 only after i get something like !7 processor .and a good gpu something like ati 5 series so that i can take advantage of direct x11 games.but currently almost every game supports xp . leaving just cause 2.
