Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a LCM19v7 Westinghouse computer monitor, less than a year old. I have to turn the monitor on and off a dozen times before it stays on. Is there something I can do to fix or do I need a new monitor. If that is the case, it sure will not be a Westinghouse brand.

My comuter w0n't stay on

o.k. unfortunately this may mean your monitor is in need of a service repair technician. The same thing happened to my hanspree monitor. Lucky for me mine was still under warranty. How about yours? how old is it? If it is not over 2 years old you may still have a warranty on it. please also try this: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- so, it automatically shuts down? try turning on your pc and do not wait for it to boot to windows. instead, immediately tap on F8 key several times as soon as you see that there is power. it should lead you to Windows advanced options menu, highlight disable automatic restart on system failure using your down arrow keys then press enter. it should start normally or if problem still persists, try safe mode instead. it would isolate the issue. if in safemode it will still shutdown automatically then you need to replace your harddrive. if not, then you should just reinstall your operating system to have your system work fine.

I have an HP flatscreen monitor that worked great til the other day. Now it only stays on for about a second and then goes black. If I turn it off and then back on it again will only stay on for a...

i,m guessing that what has happened to your monitor is that there are caps (capasitors ) in a few of the monitors on the market today the company bought caps from capxon which is a bad company.... i see a lot of them in all types of systems anyway when the cap fails the screan fails most people throw the monitor away but the cost to fix it your self is about 1.25 cents
just open the monitor up unpluged of course
look for the cap that is not flat on top or has brown coming out of the bottom write the number down
( looks like 1000uf at 16volts ) example go to radio shack and get a new one soldering is not hard just be careful and put the new one in the same way as the old one ( remember + & - do count

Gateway computer does not turn on

Without seeing the machine, I'm thinking you have a motherboard problem. But try these troubleshooting steps before throwing in the towell:
Open the case and disconnect the CD cable. Now try it. If it still doesn't work, disconnect the hard drive and try it.
Let me know what happens. I've seen CDs mess up a system like this. I many times will swap out the power supply, but I'm thinking with the lights flashing, its a more serious problem.

I have a model 2216w which is less than one year old that keeps giving false colours once my system starts up i have to tap it to get it to straighten out

check all your connections on the back of the computer and monitor. Usually this is due to a VGA cable being loose or a monitor going out (bad solder)
please post further news here.

Dell monitor

Sounds like there is a heat related problem. Probably a bad solder joint somewhere. Could be hard to track and would probably cost you more money to repair and it does to purchase a replacement monitor. 17" LCDs go for around $150 these days.

Flat Panel Monitor goes off two seconds after turning on the computer. It will not stay on. System is about five years old. could the monitor be bad?

Have you moved it recently? The monitor has a sensor that tells when the computer is on. Some times the computer settings tell the system to go in to standby mode and this will remove the signal that tells your monitor to stay on. Check your computer to see if it's running. Usually a green or yellow light on the machine will blink. If everything is good, check the pins in the cable from the CPU to the monitor. Check both sides. If a pin is bent or bad. replace the cable. Trying to straighten it might break off in the plug. Also, the video part of your computer may be bad. Try the monitor on a diffrent computer to see if it powers up.

Try using a different monitor, although it doesn't seem like that's the issue. If the new monitor gives you the same problem it could be your video card.

Westinghouse Notebook power supply

If it is under a year old it should be covered by warranty,so contact the seller or manufacturer,

It sounds very much like a power pack is on its way out, and they are a sealed unit ,

try it in another power point. if power point is working fine, but you still have the problem,

and its over the warranty period.

take it to your local computer store and have them test it for you ,they will also be able to order one in and sell you a new one ,if it is the problem.

good luck with that
