Try to go into the bios settings and restore default settings. It could be a bad setting in you bios thats causing it. If thats not the case it could be bad ram. Are there any beep codes during this process? *Beep codes are beeps that happen when you turn on your computer and there is an error, Most mother boards use them.

Nothing on the monitor, the computer powers up and e machine f2 comes up on the screen then goes blank


hello bradprice258

I am assuming you have an LCD monitor

when the computer turns on look carefully at the front face of you computer case, there are two small LED lights. one is power and one is hard disk activity.

look at the one for hard disk activity. watch it for a few mintues, if it is activly blinking and then turns off or becomes a random blink then it means the possibility is a faulty monitor. LCD monitors do that once they age or get hit by power surges or black outs.

if both lights in front of the case go out as you loose display then the problem is with Po itself. could be bad power supply of main board.

hope this has been of help.
please do leave comment if this has helped.

It could be your monitor is fine. It simply goes to a cycle when its turned on and does not detect any signal coming from your CPU, it simply goes on standby mode (hence the darker image and orange/blinking light.) have you checked the computer (CPU) part?

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.

You most likely have a bad connection inside the unit. Specifically, there are a couple of "backlights" that provide the light that will pass thru the LCD panel. If you can open up the unit, with the screen facing up, there should be a small PC board on the right. Check the connections on that board. Be careful as there is high voltage there.
Keep us posted.

PC or monitor, signal problems


your monitor is telling you it's on it's last legs..either that or your compaq has a bad video section. either is more vital than a video cable being loose.
