If you start a new topic in the troubleshooting section, your issue will get more attention, and hopefully people will be able to advise you on what to do.

EDIT: I no longer need help, Ive found the problem!

 

Well, I find myslef in this situation:

 

  • 1 long, 2 short Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information

But whats funny about this is that this only happens when I unplug the GPU, then when I try to boot it starts beeping, if I plug the GPU and try to boot it just doesnt boot, doesnt POSTs (I dont hear the short beep that its supposed to make when a pc POSTs correctly). I've tryed using the VGA and HDMI ports of the GPU and of the MOBO (with the GPU plugged and unplugged). I dont know what to do :( My conclusion is that the mobo is dead :(:(

What do you guys think?

Thanks for any answer in advance :)

 

UPDATE: it POSTs with the GPU plugged in but I have no video output, regardless I plug the HDMI to the GPU or the mobo. Regarding with what I said before, the pc not POSTing with the GPU unplugged doesnt make sense imo since IM supposed to be able to use a pc without a GPU, just with the integrated graphics (which it has).

 

P.D: I've tryed different displays which I know that are working and still output :(

 

UPDATE2: right now Im testing the gpu in another PC and in a first try to boot the pc just froze at windows session load (right after I typed the pass). I just hitted the power button and it shutdown after half a min. Then in a second try it booted normally and now I got the GPU working well... Seems like I was right with my first conclusion... The mobo is very likely to be dead... Its a proprietary mobo from acer, Ive never trusted proprietary stuff ti be honest, they always fail...

 

LAST UPDATE: I thought that my cpu had integrated gpu (I didnt check it because I was positive) so thats why all of this was so confusing but I've realized that it doesnt, it doesnt have integrated graphics so thats why I couldnt POST without the gpu plugged in... So yeah, the gpu works in other pc, doesnt works in this one, guess that means 100% the mobo is dead :(

Hello, new to the forum, is it ok to ask for networking issues in this area? Thank you

If you're having trouble setting up a network, it would be more appropriate in the Networking subfourm, but if you're having problems with your network and you're not sure what the cause is, Troubleshooting is fine.

Thank you, I was unsure because it's under "Hardware".

Any chance you could make it so when people start a new topic on these forums it flashes a massive banner across their screens asking "HAVE YOU CHECKED EVENTVWR?"

 

I think this forum would be a lot simpler if they did...
