Question about PC Desktops

5 Answers

I have an X2Gen MW22U monitor. While using, I heard a heavy static sound, then the monitor went black. I can't get it to work now. I disconnected the wires and then reconnected. Restarted the computer. Tried the on/off switch a few times. Nothing. Think this is easy to fix, or is the monitor trash? I purchased it last September, 2007.

    Any other suggestions. Can I test the power supply myself. Any other things that I can do to check the monitor?

  • ddimauro_012 Sep 23, 2008

    Marked. I don't have another computer to hook the monitor to. But I did hook up an old monitor that I am using right now. So is the power ok since this monitor works? Also, the X2Gen connects to a box that plugs to an outlet. Is that the power supply the the monitor? Last, is there a fuse in the monitor that could have blown?

Hi 
First check whether  power is coming to the monitor.
If power is their means then unplug the cable which is connect to the cpu then which on power check whether any msg is display in the monitor if not means.
Then open the pannel and then check the fuse if their or else check the circuit board whether power is coming or not.
If u have warranty means then u can claim it.
Thank you

    • Check to make sure the signal cable is firmly connected in the socket.

    • Check to see if the computer system's power is ON.

    • Check that the Brightness Control is at the appropriate position, not at the minimum.

Best thing to try here in isolating if this is a power supply problem is to try connecting the monitor to a different computer ad check if this one will work , because if the monitor still wont work on a different CPU so the monitor is bad, In checking the power supply try to open the tower of your computer and check if the fan even spin when you try to power ON the computer becuse if there's no light on the MOBO or the fan are not spinning the power supply is bad...

Hope that helps............

    Yes if this old monitor is working it only means the problem is on the monitor already, because you wont be able to use the computer with the old monitor if the monitor is the problem,,,,

    That's good, if you can test power supply. Provide power up command (low to High) in power supply and test its output voltages.

    If found OK, check converter board supply, should be approx 21~22 volts dc and stable.

You should powercycle the Monitor.
Unplug the printer from the power and press and hold the power button on the monitor for 30 seconds. (It wont show anything)
Try the same again than.

the sound you are hearing or heard could have been power surging through a powersupply unit that just blew.. hopfully it did not effect any of the other hardware..to trouble shoot this you can do one of two things..1 disconnect the 20/24 pin powerconnector from the motherboard 2 disconnect the cpu power connector 3 disconnect the 6pin power connector from the graphics card if there is one some machines have onboard video chipsets if thats the case then no worries 4 disconnect the Harddrive power 5 jump the power supply to see if you get any power from it any questions on that go to youtube and type in how to jump a power supply... or option 2 is buy a new power supply make sure its 80plus certified and replace it...i know its a lot of work but i hope this has helped you

Ok so got black screen disconnected nvidia slot to on board monitor slot. seemed to be fine until restarted and back at black screen. sounds like loading upon startup. what say u?


The first thing you need to know about working on the inside of your computer is that if you don't ground yourself you can fry a graphics card and not even know it....You may have already done this....At the very least you should make sure that you're not on carpet and that you don't build up a static charge from your computer chair...If you build up a static charge like rubbing your feet on a carpet or sliding your **** off a vinyl computer chair...you can build up a static charge that can reach 30,000 volts......Yes, that little zap can do some real damage....At the very least...take off your shoes and socks and touch a friend or family member to make sure you don't have a charge.
You may want to turn off the computer...disconnect the graphics card...turn on the computer.....give it at least 15 seconds to a minute....(You won't be able to see anything)....Turn off the computer...(Hard shut down...Press the power button and hold it).....wait a minute and put the graphics card back in....turn on the computer....and hopefully your computer will recognize the graphics card and you will be able to see your system on the screen...Hope this helps....

TURNED ON, HEARD A CRACK SOUND, NOW JUST A BLNKING RED LIGHT? PRIOR TO THIS THE COMPUTER WORKED FINE!---MONITOR WORKS ON ANOTHER COMPUTER....I GET NOTHING ON THE SCREEN & THE DISK UNIT DOESN'T...


If the power LED is blinking red, that's usually the PC telling you there is an error. Is it an HP/Compaq? The number of blinks can tell you what the problem is. If you heard a crack sound when you turned it on, I'm willing to bet the power supply went. You can go to the manufacturer's website and look through their Support Information and see what the red LED tells you.

Steady orange light above the battery looking symbol


it sounds like you might have a bad board or memory card. If you dont hear the normal sounds from the computer as it boots up, its an internal problem.

Static shock possibly fry my soundcard?


Static shock can fry your sound card from electro static discharge and it can also fry other PC components try another set of headphones in the pack of the PC. Or another pair of speakers rather than using your monitor and see what happens.

I received a X2gen monitor , model MG19E, from Best Buy warranty service. This monitor was replacement for a previous monitor that went out. I only had the X2gen monitor for just a few months and now it...


It depends. When a company replaces a component that is in warranty with another component, the only warranty that transfers is the remainder of the warranty on the original product. So if I had a monitor with a three year warranty, and it stopped working after 2 years and 11 months, the company replaces it with a brand new monitor. That brand new monitor will only carry a one month warranty because that's all the warranty you had left.

That being said, make sure you let BB know that this was a replacement monitor for one that was under warranty. They may need the original monitor's specifications to look it up for you.

Look into trying a PCI video card. I doubt the monitor went bad, however, the onboard video controller for the PC may have.

My gateway monitor just went black/greyish


It's likely the monitor just died and needs to be repaired or replaced. Do you have another monitor you can try temporarily?
