Hi there Clive Pearce, thanks for taking the time to reply. No, I can't get anything at all not even safe mode. The hard drive tries to whir and then stops and then the screen says no signal. I was trying to remove surplus programs to free up space and then accidentally removed a component of NDIVA which I think may have been the drivers and now although the hard drive comes on and briefly whirs into action the screen stays black with just the no signal message. Any further suggestions would be much appreciated!
Hi jam, appreciate your help. I have to say though that my computer has always worked perfectly until I uninstalled something to do with the NDVIA this morning. Any suggestions as to what the problem might be if it's nothing to do with drivers?
I agree this isn't a driver issue this is hardware issue. List the system specs do u hear anything when u start the system? (Fans spinning, beeps) make sure vga or hdmi or dvi cable is connected properly.
Whenever a computer is started, it runs through a quick series of self-checks called POST (Power On Self Test)...if all is well, the system will beep once, then it moves on to booting off the hard drive. If you're not seeing the HP screen at startup or hearing any beeps, you have a hardware problem that is unrelated to any files or drivers you removed.
Kuwese, I followed your prompt and re-checked that all the cables were properly connected and then the computer came back to life. Next I went to NVIDIA download site and downloaded the files that I had removed in order that I might clone my TV to my computer monitor. The only problem now is that my TV is only showing in black and white although before I was able to watch by cloning from my monitor through my TV. Do you have any further tips for me Kuwese?
