Re: Issue with new build no video display on my monitor
POST, or Power On Self Test, is a set of inspections that a computer does on itself before it loads the OS or even turns the monitors on. If any of your hardware is installed incorrectly or if any of it is 'dead' then it will fail this POST test and will halt the boot process from going ahead.
Normally, when a computer successfully passes POST, it makes a single 'beep' and turns on the monitors, and gets on with loading Windows. If it fails the POST test, it will just stop, the monitors will be off and the hard drive LED won't be flashing since it hasnt got that far. The most common cause of POST failures in my experience is RAM and Graphics cards.
i had this problem recently, which i eventually found was a bad RAM slot killing my DIMM and making my PC fail POST. IT just hangs with the monitors on standby.
