I'm a very beginner with rasberrypi. This is only the 3rd time I'm using it.

as, as title, 3rd time I use the rasberrypi, 3rd time I have to crate an SD card because of no signal video.

Is it normal? where am I wrong?


I think it is a "no boot at all", because when I plug the montior I see "NO SIGNAL" in the monitor.

It is a sandisk ultra 8gb, should be ok from that list (that I didn't know so, thank you for the list)

Ohu, I have a Raspbeyy PI (C) 2011.. is it the model?

  • You're going to have to be more specific. Can you elaborate on what you mean by "no signal video"? Do you mean a kernel panic or that it doesn't boot at all? What's the brand/model of your SD card? Is it on this list? elinux.org/RPi_SD_cards What are the exact steps you're taking to format and write the image to the SD card? Sep 6 '13 at 22:05

  • Are you using a HDMI monitor? Sep 12 '13 at 19:00

If you are using an HDMI monitor you may need to set the


value in the configuration file.

There is a troubleshooting guide at eLinux which may help you as well.
