No display and fans speed up after few minutes.

HP Recommended
hp compaq elite 8300
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I turn on the PC the fans start to works as well as the hard drives but there is no display.After a minute or two the fans speed increase drastically.

It started when I accidentally removed the data cable from the hard drive. I plugged it back in and my windows got corrupt, I restarted the pc to start the windows repair but it couldn't repair it so I restarted it again just to be sure and then it happened. I removed all my drives and restart it, it got fix then I turned of the PC to plug the drives in and then the problem returned.

I checked all my rams, power supply and processor but they are not the problem


My PC specs:

Intel core i5 3470 3.4 GHz

3 drives:




16 Ram

2 AMD HD 5450 2GB

From what you said, my guess is that you sent a static shock to the drive, and maybe to the motherboard as well, if you reconnected the drive while the PC was running.


Even if the drive is dead or fried, the PC should still attempt to boot and you should see something on the screen, even if it is only a flashing cursor.

What I suggest is that you use a working PC to create boot media USB stick.  You can then use this to try to boot your PC.  If it still does not boot at all, that is, blank screen, then it could be that the motherboard was damaged.


Follow the instructions below to create boot media from Macrium Reflect (MR) that can be used to rewrite/repair the boot media on your PC:
1) Download and install Macrium Reflect (MR) from this link on a working PC:
2) Use the option to create a boot USB stick or CD

That will create MR bootable media. Then, you can boot your PC into WinPE using that media.

Have patience, as that can take a while to start and bring up the screen.
