Question about Computers & Internet

I moved my computer to another room and now the monitor won't work. When I turn the computer on, the light turns green on the monitor for about 2 seconds then goes to orange and the screen stays black. If I unplug the blue cable, the light turns green and the screen displays no signal. Can you help me please?

On the back of your computer do you have 2 vga connections? 1 will be onboard and the second if you have it will be a graphics card, could you have plugged your vga into your onboard when you have a graphics card plugged in? if so youll need to plug it into the graphics card instead.

Make sure you don't have two video cards on your machine and have plugged into the wrong one.
Failing that, open the case and make sure the card is plugged firmly in its slot (do this with the power off).

My dell gx260 ligth come green if i turn it on but for a few mins time it turn orange why


Do you mean the monitor's power light starts green and then turns orange when you turn it on? Most monitors will go to a power saving mode when they do not get a signal from the computer.

The Dell GX260 has a green power light when on. When the computer is off, the light is off. If it is green and blinking, then the computer is in a power saving mode.

Diagnosis: start with the obvious: is the monitor cable plugged into both the computer and the monitor (if not permanently connected to the monitor)? Are you connected to the active port? (You can add a video graphics card in most desktops. The motherboard video port usually needs to be disabled to use the card ports. If you plug in the monitor cable to the disabled port, it won't work.) Is the monitor set to the correct input? (This applies if the monitor has several ports. In that case, there will be a Source or Input button on the monitor.) Is the computer on? The GX260 has the power button on the front. (Other computers have the power button on the top.) There is also the power supply switch on the back which needs to be on.

Next try a different data cable between the monitor and the computer (if you can). Try a different monitor. If a second monitor works, than the monitor has a damaged main board. If the second monitor doesn't work, then the video graphics adapter has probably failed. Replace the add-on card, if in use, then boot in the safe mode to remove the old graphics driver. Then install the correct driver for the graphics adapter.

Note: the computer and the monitor should both be off when you connect the cables. Then turn on the monitor first and set it to the correct source before turning on the computer.)

I hope this helps.

AL 1706 troubleshouting monitor wont turn on green


If your monitor shows a yellow light and it won't turn green, the problem most likely lies with the computer. If your computer is not sending a signal to the monitor, then you have a computer problem. One way to test this is to turn the monitor off and the computer off, too.
Turn the monitor on and if it is working, it should display a message telling you that there is no signal. If you see that message, you can assume the monitor is working. If you do see it, now turn on the computer and see if the message changes.
If you turn the monitor on and you get no message, you can assume the problem lies with the monitor itself.
If you have access to another monitor, hook that one up to test the computer output.

You can now either get the monitor fixed or the computer fixed, depending on which one is bad.

Wont turn on, nothing.... Power supply is good


Replace the power-cord.

Wait until midnight, and turn out all the lights in the room, so that's dark in your computer room.

Turn on the monitor, and see if you get any light and/or any lamps (green? yellow? red?)

Try a different monitor attached to your computer.

Try your monitor on a different computer.

If it worked on a computer at the IT person, it is most likely a faulty graphics card in your computer. You may want to get that checked out.
