No video on monitor, My T3256 just beeps every few seconds. HELP

My subject line tells it all. The only thing the monitor does when powered up is say analog, then, digital. Re plugged in all cords, doesn't do anything different.
Thanks, Greg

Check the back of your computer, may be your monitor is connected to the wrong video port. Sometimes the computer have 2 video connections, one is built-in on the motherboard and the other one is a external video card inserted on the slot of the motherboard. Check both.
If you still don't have video check your video card. Put another monitor and see what happen.

HP Pavilion a1230n had bad power supply I changed it out for a better one of the same make and model. Now when it turns on I can hear the hard drive spinning and the fans running but it beeps every few...


If the beeping is coming from the power supply, that typically means that you are pulling too much wattage. I would recommend trying a higher wattage power supply. The video card is one of the lowest things on the computer's list of things to keep running at all costs, because even if your video card flickers off, you won't lose data. Before getting another new power supply though, I would ensure that your video cables are properly plugged into your video card and your monitor. To be sure that they are snug simply screw them in so that they don't wiggle at all when you pull on them.

Video is on-board the motherboard on this model BUT you can buy (or borrow) a video card pretty cheap. When the computer starts up, do you hear any 'beeps', etc.? Might be something other than the video card...

Monitor Shows pixelated colors then flashes no input and turnsoff


If it is a desktop, try another monitor and see if you're gonna get the same problem. If its a laptop, connect an external monitor to it. If the other monitor shows the same thing, it means to say that there's just something wrong with your video card. If that's the case, you might as well uninstall and reinstall the video driver. If in the other case, the other monitor's fine then definitely its your monitor. if there's a reset button or a factory reset button available on your monitor then reset it. If the same thing happens, get it replaced.

Monitor Shows pixelated colors then flashes no input and turnsoff


Well the fact that your computer beeped tells me that there was a fault in either the motherboard or the video card. I would first replace the video card.

Viewsonic VG 900 displays briefly, then goes blank


What Usually causes these to go on and off quickly is one af a couple things.

Usually it is the powerboard not putting out enough power to run the video board and the inverter.

Sometimes it is the actual inverter board. I have seen a plain small fuse stop these cold.

Rarely, but it could be a bad bulb in the screen. Bad bulbs usually start dark in the middle, or they start off pink. They can also flicker while they are on.

If you can take it apart and have a dc tester, the problem may be able to be found.
I repair some viewsonics , mostly VXs series, but I have done a couple of these.
