Question about HP 71 17 in.CRT Conventional Monitor

2 Answers

No signal When my monitor is turned on it displays: NO SIGNAL.However when the pc is disconnected it shows:NO CONNECTION. This seems to suggest it is sensing a connection but just not recieving / displaying a signal It only started when I was forced to reboot halfway through XP home setup and as I dont have another monitor I cant check to see whether the computer is at fault. Looking forward to an answer. Alex

So the screen went dead.
so did you power cycle the PC (is it a desktop?)
then press the BIOS keys to see the VIDEO work now.
if the BIOS is now dead, that is major system problem.
BIOS is first. hit the hot key now.
if the bios works then try F8 as it boots see if safe mode works, my guess is the install is only 1/2 done.
id be all over overheating, fans ,vents, etc, firsts
before id blame any vga card, gee mine has this huge fan on the GPU, too. GFX660, the GPU chips most not over heat too.... ever look inside the old pC
unstated and clean it, ever, or make sure all fans work>./// we cant see inside only you,.

HP 71, CRT, why own this relic?
last guy said it was vintage, (recalls good memories from long ago)?
I can not say why the pc is dead, but it did.
the 71 did not lie to you, i bet.
the old monitor seems oddly enough to be working.
id retire it , CRT can shock you and catch fire.
ever seen the movie, final destination? it's real that.
just one spilled drink and oops.

the CRT is ok, seems so to me. id do tests on it,but...
and half way installed XP , the HDD fails.
why run XP at all, only 1% now in usa, and less every day, the % is falling like a rock due to its zero support now for 3 long years, and a virus magnet.

barrow a monitor.?

the real post here , I bet.
is XP fails to install.
and goes dead, in the process, well gee that is common
the problem is it's lots of causes.

Tell me does booting to KNoppix 7 DVD work or better off a USB stick? work? (live linux try that)

No PC stated,so cant help at all. much.
if knoppix runs good?
then the HDD is bad? or
the XP install disk is bad, is it CD-R or from MS real. (no media stated)

it's one of those 2 things, top caused or.
or PSU bad.
bad memory
or modules inside pC are shorted.
or the PC is overheated for sure Fans packed in lint
dead fans or the heat sink there packed in lint.
that is generic answer, no PC stated by you.

that same Knoopix disk has great disk tester for you HDD.

see it here. smart test is first then hdd tests.
do that first any time and OS will not install.
and win.

Your video card either needs the driver for the monitor or it has failed. If you get your video directly from the motherboard without going thru a video card in a slot, then the mother board is at fault and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: Can't see screen to install diver for HP Compaq WF 1907

My friend just purchase this monitor yesterday. When she plugged it in to the back of the tower she received the same prompt u have mentioned. I was able to repair it because she simply did not realize that I had installed a new graphics card into her pc a few months ago. When u do this, you have to hook your monitor into the area where the new graphics card was installed. You can not plug your monitor into the same onboard card that u have previously plugged your monitor into.
Let me know, if by chance, u did install a new graphics card.
Hope this was helpful :)

If the power light does not turn color and stay's green on startup, it is not a power problem. It is most likely the inverter. If the unit is in warranty, send it out ASAP. Contact HP customer care by email and have the issue logged in.
If in warranty, they will send you a box by FedX second day and have repaired.
This is a 19" monitor and will not be worth paying for repairs if not in warranty.

SOURCE: monitor starts then goes off, no signal

I would check the LCD against another monitor. It does not have to be a LCD, a regular monitor will do.
This will tell you 2 things, 1. The Video card is good or bad, 2. The Cable is sendinf a good signal.
If when you startup the monitor, you see a display and then after a few seconds it display's a no signal message, this is consistant with a Bad cable or cable ends. or Bad VGA card from computer.
Hope this helps. Good luck..
P.S. If you have move the PC, you may want to open the unit, and re-seat the Card. If the card is not making a solid connect on the board, it will display these syptoms.

No signal on monitor

Sounds like a bad video card or bad monitor. Check the connection to and from the monitor to the pc. If the monitor power light turns on, Then I would suspect the problem to be the video card.

My dell 470 wont boot up every thing seems to be working but when i turn on i get a blank screen and no signal displayed Edward

This means that your monitor is not receiving a signal from your graphics card.
Here are the things that you can try:
-Disconnect and reconnect your monitor from your computer.
-Try using a different cable to connect your monitor to your computer.
-Try connecting your monitor to another computer, if it works there it means that there's a problem with your graphics card and it may require a replacement. If your monitor is still saying no signal even if it has been connected to another computer that works fine then the problem is with the monitor.

Hi! I want to remove the OSD attention from my monitor. How do I manage this? It's necessary to me remove this attention pop out.

OSD popup no signal If you are getting a message that says something like"Check cables" "no signal detected" or something like that,it is likely that your monitor is operating correctly. I would suggestchecking your cables, make sure that the computer is turned on, and if thatdoesn't help, check if your monitor has VGA, DVI, or HDMI inputs. I amthinking that your monitor may be trying to display from the wrong source. This is what a VGA (analog) cable looks like. VGA cables aretypically blue.tgvern_4.jpg

Another common connection that is used is a digital HDMI (left) or DVI(right) connection. DVI cables often have white endconnectors. How your PC connects to your monitor will determine thesource mode you want to use on your monitor. (Obviously this is the cableview but the connection on the monitor itself will look similar.) tgvern_5.jpg

If none of these tips helps, I would suggest hooking the same monitor up to adifferent PC or laptop, and trying once again to get a the display working. Again, make sure that the connection matches the source setting on yourmonitor. If it works on another PC, then your computer may have a videoproblem.
Otherwise, if it still does not work your monitor have a problem displaying viathat connection. If possible I would suggest switching to a differenttype of cable and re-try the above steps.

Blank display, machine seems to boot ok but display is blank.

If you hear your computer beep once then your system has no problem. If it does'nt show a display, try to check the power of your monitor, if it has power. Check the power cords and also the vga connection.

Monitor displays signal cable disconnected

Check your VGA connector (from monitor to PC), namely the pins in the connector. It's pretty easy to bend a pin, so that it doesn't make the connection. If you happen to do this to the connection present pins, then the monitor won't know that it is connected and will just display the message you are seeing.
