1. Press the power button on the monitor to make sure the monitor is ON make sure it's plugged into the computer correctly


2. Turn off the computer for 10 seconds , and reboot the machine

when you have turned the computer back on , press F2 while booting , this will take you to the BIOS screen , the bios screen should be showing at this point , which means nothing is actually broken.


when you first turn a monitor they may be a little cold from not getting signal , and may not be bright enough for you to see anything even though you've turned the computer on, monitors have to warm up a bit.

4. If you have no video after performing step 2. you may need to check the VGA cable to see that it's plugged into the correct monitor port ( onboard video ) in most cases



If you have no video at this point , you can try another monitor , if you still get no video from the computer even though you know your monitor is good. you may have a bad video chip

If it's the onboard video chip , thats fortuneate , because you can shut it down and use another video card.

Those are the simplified instructions.


Thank you for using FixYa!

Desktop computer monitor goes black but works on other computers


It sounds like the resolution is set wrong. Go to the minimum and see if that solves the problem. If so keep working up.

Why is my refurbished Compaq WNG monitor going off?


From the description the problem is in the power supply board, there are probably one or more bad capacitors that have opened, sometimes they bulge at the top making it easier to spot. If you hire a shop to repair this they will charge, and on top of that the monitor is at least 5 years old before you got it, I would replace the monitor.

My Compaq s1922a monitor goes black right in the middle of me working on the computer. What could be causing this?


Try the monitor on another computer to see if it does the same thing with another graphics card. If it does, then the monitor is bad.

The monitor turns on and the computer image comes on for about a second then screen goes black again. The image that does come on is perfect.


I'm having the exact problem. I just got the new monitor & I replaced my 18". When I plug it in it flickers, when it does come on it's clear & clean; but after a few minutes it goes black. I tried to switch it to Digital & Analog, but I don't know how to fix it. I know it works, it was just plugged into my brother's computer. Is something wrong with the settings on my computer? If so, how do I fix it? I have both monitors hooked up on my computer desk right now, it's a bit crowded! PLEASE HELP ME!!!

Laptop monitor goes black


If you're working on the computer when that happens, it's not probably a power setting. Try to update your BIOS to the most current version at the toshiba support website (support.toshiba.com) & see what happens. Fixes the issue most of the time

I hope this helps.

The monitor setting in windows maybe incorrect. When booting up before you get the windows logo start hitting F8 and then choose safe mode. If your monitor works in windows there then check the monitors settings. You may have a driver issue or a settings issue when in normal windows mode.
