No Signal when desktop wants to load

Upon startup, the normal procedure is black screen with techical info, then blue screen (windows xp) that says "windows is starting up" then when that goes away the desktop starts loading.

All is normal untill the desktop trys to load. instead of the desktop loading the screen goes black and "No Signal" pops up on the screen, then a few seconds later, my monitor goes on standby.

I pulled the monitor off my other computer (old P.O.S. Proview monitor) to see if it was my computer or the monitor. and its the monitor because this one works just fine.

Please help!

This is exactly what is happening to my monitor but happens a bit faster. Once the drive starts then the monitor turns on and turns straight back off again. The monitor works on other people's computers (including the tech guy at the shop I bought it from, making me look like a fool). However, once it has run on someone else's computer, it works fine on this one until it has had a long shut down (overnight). I updated drivers yesterday. It can't be too high a resolution since this is the highest one I have used before and the monitor I have plugged into it now has a resolution of 1366 x 768 and it is handling it.

It does not hate that monitor. I believe the problem is in the settings on your video. Your monitor cannot display them. You will most likely need to start your computer in safe mode and change the display settings on your video card or, alternatively, download updated video drivers. Also, if you can't get Windows to start in normal or safe mode, one of the options you get when you press F8 on startup is to start in VGA mode. That will get you in so you can tweak your settings, which are probably set to a resolution too high for your monitor.

Computer turns on and after its done showing loading bar a blue screen appears . the computer then restarts with a black screen showing start windows normal, or startup repair. i chose startup repair


Try running the Check Disk Utiltiy.
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Blue screen on start up bios not loading on startup dell desktop windows xp


You might have experienced the blue screen of death, as they may term it. This could be caused by corrupted system files on Windows that the computer needs in order to bootup. In such cases, try to reboot and press F5 or F8 continuously until it gets you to a selection where you can choose Safe Mode or Last known Good Configuration". You can choose either of the two until it boots back to normal. If this does not solve the issue, you may need to do a Windows Repair, on which you need the Windows Installation CD and boot from there.

Please let me know if you needed further assistance.

I reboot and The black windows screen works and then a blue screen turns on and just stays there. It says" Microsoft Windows XP


try booting into safe mode:

start up your system and tap on the F8 key.

This may allow you to get into windows and see what the problem is.

click Start-> Run -> type MSCONFIG

in the system configuration window you can disable all startup items and services, restart the PC and see if it works normally.

Then you can turn on a few at a time to find out if something is gumming up your system.

Stop Error Vista Blue Screen


HI,
To determine what is causing the issue just restart the pc and keep pressing f8 key - this will take you to advanced boot meny.
First of all login to safe mode and check if problem persists there - if no go to start and in start search bar type in MSCONFIG - then hit enter.
After that go to startyp tab in system configuration window and click on disable all startup items.
Restart yuor pc in normal mode and if problem will not persist keep enabling startup items one by one. This will allow you to determine which software is cauusing the problems. Then update that software. Unless it is really old it should work with vista.If that is xp only software you will be able to use that in Windows7 under xp mode. Check Mocrosoft website for more info on XP mode.

Black screen with AGP video card update


you really didn't need a new psu for that videocard, but it can either be a burned videocard or the monitor can't support the refresh rate the videocard is outputting.  although, the card really should default to its lowest setting upon installing in a new system, try connecting another monitor.  if you get a screen, thats good, if not, try booting into safe mode holding f8 right before the windows loading screen appears.
