23 - d160qd envy: new motherboard, now empty screen and 6 beeps. Cannot change the legacy BIOS. Help!

Good ladies and Gentlemenof the Interwebulars, I hope someone can shed some light on my situation.

Walked down one day to see that my computer would not start. A diagnosis which in a bad power port. Got a new motherboard because after desoldering (or that's what I tried to do) I realized that it was small to (re) welding in and I could not find the right part to reorganize.

so I got a new motherboard. The number replacement part direct. Barefoot on my floor wood and ESD wrsitband on, I put in this bad boy. Double and triple check things and connections. Go to hit the power button and I get 6 beeps and 6 flashes of correspopnding of the powerbutton. The system does not appear to be on, fan is running with the other sounds of starting and running sounds, but I have a white screen and orange electric button. If I tap CTRL + ALT + DELETE it will restart and begin the process again. The 6 beeps by HP standards denotes missing graphics / card error. My original motherboard had a built-in graphics card so I thought that the same new part number card mother too. Obviously not. so I had a Geforce 2Go MXM graphics card update with heat sink. Barefoot, wood floor, bracelet ESD, thermal paste and turn it on to hear... SIX BEEPS AND SCREEN WHITE.

After Googling around, some people say that I have to enter the BIOS and change boot legacy and fashion out of the UEFI mode that's killing me right now. I have join and would completely if I could see my screen of the BIOS, or anything for that matter. I can not go back also to my other card because it will not feed. So my question; How to make or change the BIOS settings so that my computer will recognize a graphics card or internal graphic that should be on the new motherboard itself so that it starts?

I need this computer for CAD work soon so I thought help processor i7, 8GBs RAM, Geforce card and touch screen to perform a generation of PC.  So if someone has a great idea they would projected upward on this post, I'd appreciate it. Thank you!

Your computer is not posting, sound rather give an error message in the form of 6 beeps and red LED flashing, indicating graphics / video issue.

You can never get into the BIOS of the device, if its not posting, not on a HP Desktop atleast.

I recommend, you disconnect all components and fittings connected to the motherboard i.e. cables SATA, power cables, RAM, processor, heatsink, power supply and battery CMOS as well.

Now, press and hold button power unit for a minute or two., with the power and everything is still disconnected.

Then,.

(1) Insert the battery CMOS back into its slot, install the processor and the heat sink, connect all cables power that goes to the motherbaord in the PSU and CPU and etc., less SATA cable and cable power to drive hard and Optcal drive and turn on the device, of course after you have connected the rear power cable.

(2) check if the machine beeps and check whether it is 5 times.

(3) If yes install a memory in the first slot (slot black), connect the monitor and turn on the power and check if there is no video output.

(4) if so, connect the return which is always disconncted, to their respective locations and ports and turn them the unit on and get on with your CAD stuff.

IF NO,

2 options:

(1) if the unit is still under warranty, call 1800-474-6836 and have a technician on-site visit your place and replace the parts needed for the operational unit.

(2) or the motherboard you purchased could have been Dead On Arrival. Get a warranty replacement for the DOA mobo and re install a new Board of Directors.

Good luck!

    Change the screen resolution

    Screen resolution refers to the clarity of the text and images on your screen. At higher resolutions, items appear sharper. They appear also smaller, so more items adapted to the screen. At lower resolutions, fewer items adapted to the screen, but they are larger and easier to see. At very low resolutions, however, images may have serrated edges.

    It's what warranties are for. If you bought the phone from Apple or an Apple authorized reseller, iPhone, you have 14 days to return it for a refund. After that the Bank should replace the phone. If you did not buy from Apple or a shop authorized, you must respect the terms of this store. However, Apple will always replace the phone, if you contact them directly.

  • When I click on 'File' and then 'new' it keeps open a new file as a layer and not a background. The RGB mode is selected.

    When I click on 'File' and then 'new' it keeps open a new file as a layer and not a background. The RGB mode is selected.

    With the new files to open as a layer and not a background, I'm not able to create multiple layers and it won't let me convert the background layer.

    How what happened. I've used PS yesterday and had no problem. Today, my computer did updates mandatory day and now this.

    Yes. You use the option of Pixel of the Ellipse tool. He's so setting pixels as it is supposed to do without creating a layer.

    Choose the option to the form:

    Also the menu layer > new layer creates layers and paper rolled up at the bottom of your layers palette also creates a new layer. I hope these work.

  • Satellite - black screen and can't restart with the recovery disk

    I have a black screen and can not restart with the restore disc but it seems to be.

    I find this odd, I can't ask Toshiba direct on my problem, but I have to wait for one nature in the heart of my problem or give me a helping hand

    Hey,.

    This means that you can see anything on the screen of the laptop or only if you try to start with the recovery disk?
    You can start Windows or access the BIOS?
    You must post a few more details, otherwise we can t help you :(

    Furthermore, Toshiba is not your first contact, you should ask an authorized service provider. They can help you too! :)

  • I get the windows login screen and I do not know the password for administrators

    I accidentally deleted my account and when the computer starts and I get the windows login screen and I do not know the administrators password. Also how can I reinstall windows when I got a disc when I brought my laptop. Thank you, Lorraine

    Thanks for getting back to me. I sold my old laptop to my son-in-law, and he asked me to remove my name from the computer off so that my name wasn't on the screen all the time. so I deleted the profile of cook of lorraine and made one for him, but I didn't give it a password. then I realized what I had to do (I got Lorraine where time is on the bottom of the screen), but was unable to highlight to remove it without a mouse. so I plugged a mouse, but the computer does not read, then I restarted the computer. When I restarted, all I could get was the windows login screen.

    then I typed in the name son-nlaws and they said that he was kidnapped, tyoed in mine and got the same and then typed in Administrator, but did not know the password. I have since reinstalled windows. XP Professional would not install saying a file was missing, so I installed xp family and is working again. He just has to click on what edition it wants to run. Professional XP of course happen just with the display of connection... but it can use again.
    Thank you once again, Lorraine

    I will have questions all the time my office.

    Method 3: Perform the clean boot and check

    It may be that a third-party application is causing this issue. Put the system at boot.

    Method 4: I suggest you make a system full scan just to be sure.

    Here is a link that will give you information on how to perform a full scan of the system:

    http://www.Microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx

    , Note 1: The Microsoft Safety Scanner ends 10 days after being downloaded. To restart a scan with the latest definitions of anti-malware, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.

    Note 2: The data files that are infected must be cleaned only by removing the file completely, which means that there is a risk of data loss.
