Hi, I have a Princeton LCD17D flat screen monitor and the screen keeps going black after 20 seconds or so. I power up my PC and it turns on then black. If I turn it off and on again the same thing occurs....


It's getting power, it's just not getting signal from the data cable. The cord that connects to the monitor, (not the power) is typically the reason it is going into standby mode. This can also happen if your graphics card driver is missing on your operating system, but you said you tried the monitor on another machine, so I narrowing it down to most likely be the data cable. Try another cable.

Cannot connect to internet router is working properly it is connected to my regular computer but cannnot get singal for my notebook


Hello, bevybuns5!

First thing, make sure your WLAN card is turned on, however, without knowing your specific laptop model, I can't help locate it for you. After that, check your router's wireless security code, and assure that you're entering it correctly. Then, if you still aren't able to connect, try manually unplugging the ethernet cable from your PC, then plug the Ethernet cable into the laptop. If you get a signal, skip to the third paragraph, if not then read the next paragraph.

If you aren't getting a physical connection, it could indicate that there is something wrong with some type of software, or operating system settings that aren't allowing you to connect to the internet (leave the network cable plugged in for troubleshooting). Try checking firewall settings (windows firewall is infamous for blocking almost all connections at will). Then, if you're using windows xp, go to the start menu, open the run command, and type "CMD" without quotes (if you're using Vista or Win7, then just type CMD in the search box at the start menu. When the command prompt screen appears, enter this text without quotes "ipconfig /all". If you have an IP address, subnet gateway, and IPv4 configuration, then you're ready for the next step (if not, let me know in a comment, and I'll leave the instructions for that solution). If you're using xp, then right click computer, click properties, go to the hardware tab, then click "Device Manager" (for Vista/Win7, just type Device Manager in the start menu search box). Scroll down (if you have to) to Network, click on it, find your physical network card, right click and uninstall it (don't worry, this won't hurt anything). Wait for a few moments, then right click anywhere in the Device Manager window, then select "scan for new hardware". This will find the NIC you just uninstalled, and reinstall it (with original drivers, unless you've upgraded your Operating System, then you'll have to get the drivers from the manufacturers website via your desktop). Reboot the laptop, and try connecting with the LAN cable again. If this solution doesn't work, leave me a comment describing what you've done, and any error messages that have come up.

If you recieve a signal from the LAN cable, and still cannot connect via the wireless card, then back into device manager we go! For xp users, go to the Start Menu > right click Computer > click Properties > go to the Hardware tab > then click Device Manager. For Vista/Win7 users, open the Start Menu, then type Device Manager. Scroll down and find your wireless card, and if you've tried the solution in the second paragraph, you know what we're gonna do. Right click it, Uninstall the wireless card, wait for a few moments, then right-click anywhere in the Device Manager screen, and select Scan for New Hardware. Reboot the system, and you should be working!

How do i get rid of "CHECK SIGNAL CABLE" on my 17" flatron wide monitor?


"Check Signal Cable" message is shown on the monitor only when their is disconnection between PC & monitor or if the cable is faulty. You can get rid of the message, which is built-in the monitor. Try changing the faulty cable.

My desktop red in colour i have lg flatron w1642s


Hi Shiva003,

This problem usually arises when a line in your signal cable is cut. I suggest you get a new signal cable and the problem will be history. When this cable is cut you may have your screen appearing reddisg, yellowish or blueish - RGB combination that produce all the other colours we see.

Regards.

My computer comes on but my screen is blank


Hi tytiyana..
i am giving my sugggestions.

Remedies. The remedies below should be performed in order. NOTE:Turn off the computer after each step. Never work inside the computer case with the power turned on.
1. Check and make sure all cables are firmly attached to the back of the computer and to all external devices. Retry.
2. Remove the case cover from the computer. Make sure all cables (hard drive, power cables, other disk cables) inside the computer are firmly attached.
Press down on all ISA and PCI cards and make sure they are firmly seated. Make sure your DRAM memory cards are firmly seated. Feel the top of the CPU and make sure it is not hot (warm is OK). Retry.
3. This step is only for newly built computers that have not successfully booted. Get out your motherboard manual, or download one from the manufacturer's site, and go over all your motherboard jumper settings.
Set the jumpers in the most conservative position. Review all your accessory wire connections (keyboard lock, hard drive access light, etc.) and make sure the connectors to the motherboard are facing the same direction. Retry.
4. Turn the computer back on with the case off. Verify that your CPU and power supply fan are running. If either one is not running you have a problem. If the power supply fan is not running replace the power supply (make sure the power connectors are correctly attached to the motherboard). Make sure the CPU fan is connected to power on the motherboard. If it is correctly connected and still doesn't run, replace it. Retry.
5. Unplug your computer. Remove all PCI and ISA cards. Reinstall the video card and disconnect the hard drive cable. Plug in the keyboard, video cable, and power cable. Restart your computer. If this worked, go to Step 6. If your DOS screen doesn't come up at this point try the following ideas.

a. Closely examine your motherboard and make sure it is not making contact with the computer case, which will short it.
b. Your video card, video cable, or monitor may be malfunctioning. Borrow a video card, cable and monitor, retry.
c. Remove and reinstall your DRAM. If your computer can not find system memory it will not POST.
d. Remove the CPU and reinstall it.
e. Follow your motherboard manual's instructions for resetting your BIOS to its default configuration.
If your computer still will not boot into a DOS screen, seek professional help.
