Trouble with booting up No BIOS, no boot up screen, just a blank monitor.
  1 / 2    
After installing the new 296.10 graphics card driver for my Nvidia GTX580, I switched off my PC, and left it for 1 hour before returning to it. However, when I switched on the computer, all the fans and lights came back on, but when I switched on my monitor, it did not detect any input (nothing was shown on the screen) but the case fans, video card fans as well as CPU heat sink were all working properly, with no warning lights blinking or whatsoever. I am a beginner with computers, and do not know much, so please explain any advanced concepts. (Thanks!) /smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smile:' />

Yes, I have checked, rebooted my monitor and all that. Checked the cables and all, all connected perfectly.

can you boot in safe mode? i know your screens black but just keep hitting the f8 key as soon as your fire up your computer and see if you get into safe mode and then you can remove the driver and re-install a older one or just roll back the driver if you did not perform a clean install.

so whats your point?
i did read the post and even
though the op's screen is not
showing anything it still might
with trying safe mode as the
nvidia driver will be disabled.
and I am just trying to help the
op with a suggestion which i think
my suggestion is a valid one that
might work.
in other words you have nothing to lose by trying my suggestion!!!!! /thumbsdown.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbsdown:' />
also where is your suggestion for the op besides trying to cause more issues by trying to make me look stupid??

OK, tried booting into safe mode but didn't work. One thing though, I see that the BOOT DEVICE LED on my motherboard is lit red. Could it be a problem with the driver, or my other components?

Edit: Seems like BOOT_DEVICE_LED only comes on when I try to boot into safe mode...

Please, some help? Safe mode only seems to cause complications, and I don't see how to reinstall a driver without the display...

If you can't see the initial boot screen when you first power on the system, it's not a driver issue. Try a different cable to connect the monitor e.g. DVI, HDMI, etc.

Um, I'm using DVI right now, and there still isn't any response... /wallbash.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':wallbash:' />
Thank you for telling me that though.

Switch things up a bit, if you can. Try a different monitor with that computer or try that monitor on a different computer. I've had to fix two bad LCDs already this year.
