When I turn On Power the green light on th ON buttom Blinks continous. the screen does not come On.


The button should not be blinking unless it has the power led light on it which should be blinking.
Well this is an indication that there is no communication between the CPU and the monitor. Either the CPU is not working or is faulty may be because booting problem or the cables connecting the cpu to the monitor (VGA) cable is faulty.
Check them If it is the CPU with the problem, you have to check and see that all its hardware is in order i.e. well fixed. Make sure there are no loose cables in the connections.
If all these are OK, check to see that the booting order in the BIOS set up is OK. make the cd as the first booting source and the Hard Drive as the second. Disable the rest just to be sure that there is no other booting source the computer is trying to use. If it still doesn't work, reverse the boot order. Set the hard drive as the first booting source and the cd the second. If still not working, set the CD as the first booting source and then the hard drive the second and insert a bootable cd with the same operating system as the one initially used by the machine or of a higher version and boot from the machine from the cd. If you don't want to loose your files, you will go through the recovery console process
Next, Windows Setup will find existing Windows XP installations. You will be asked to repair an existing XP installation or install a fresh copy of Windows XP.If no installations are found, then you will not be given the option to repair. This may happen if the data or partition on your drive is too corrupted.
  • Please make sure it is the same version of Windows that is currently installed on your computer (ex. XP Home cannot repair XP Professional). Place the CD in your CDROM and start your computer. Newer versions will work as well (ie. Windows XP Pro SP2 CD will work on an older WinXP Pro SP1 installation)

    you will be asked to press any key to boot from CD, so do just that.

    Step 3: System repair steps
  • A blue screen will appear and will begin loading XP setup from the CD.

    simply let the CD load without pressing F6.

    Once completed, you will be confronted with "Windows Setup". You will be asked to setup up Windows, or repair Windows with the recovery console. Choose the FIRST option, NOT recovery console.
Choose F8 to continue.

That should be it. Windows XP will appear to be installing itself for the first time, but it will retain all of your data and settings. Just follow the prompts

After startup on Sammsung SyncMaster 940 N I do not see


Sounds like system software needs to be replaced... re-installed. It probably got corrupted somehow since it is not rebooting properly. Use the original discs that came with the computer. Thnx

17 inch monitor goes blank


  • Prepare to diagnose the computer .
    1. Disconnect all peripheral devices.
    2. Perform a Hard Reset.
    3. Disable the Automatic restart on system failure option.
  • Remove any non-system disc from the computer . During startup, the BIOS checks different devices to locate the Windows operating system. If the boot order is set to check the optical disc drive or the card reader (if the notebook is equipped with a card reader) before it checks the hard drive, and there is a non-system disc in the CD/DVD drive or there is a memory card in the card reader, the boot will fail. This problem can be resolved by setting the BIOS to check the hard drive first.
  • Reseat the memory modules . If you are getting memory errors, most BIOS versions have additional tests that can be run to test the memory. There could be a problem if one of the sticks is defective or loose in the memory slots. To determine what is causing the memory failure, disconnect all electrical power, and then remove and re-insert the memory modules firmly into the slots. Some HP Notebook PCs come with two sticks of memory and have two memory slots. On most notebooks, the memory module compartment is located on the bottom of the case, but the exact position varies by model. On some models, the memory compartment is under the keyboard. See your User Guide for the exact location of memory modules on your notebook.
  • Reset the BIOS to default condition . If you have made changes in the BIOS setting, such as disabling a device or changing the boot order, it could prevent the computer form starting properly. To restore the BIOS to its factory-recommended settings, turn on the computer and press f10 to access BIOS setup, and then press f9 to load the default BIOS configuration.
  • Perform a memory self test . There are different reasons that you may see a memory error. There could be a physical problem or it could be a program error. If the error is a program error, you will most likely see a Windows error message. If there is a physical problem with a memory module, the computer may fail part way through the boot process. Most computers have a built-in memory test to help identify if the memory modules are seated properly and are free of errors. To run the memory test, turn on the computer and press f2 .
    • If the System Diagnostics screen displays, select the Start-up Test to run the system memory test. Press the Esc key once the memory test is complete.
    • If the BIOS Diagnostics screen displays, select Memory Test .
  • Reseat the hard drive . If you get a specific hard drive error message on a black screen indicating the hard drive error, reseat the hard drive. If the computer has been dropped or jarred, or the hard drive has been replaced recently, the drive may not be seated tightly. The hard drive LED should blink if the hard drive has a solid connection in the notebook. Refer to the on-line User's Guide for specifics on locating and removing / replacing a hard drive. HP provides video directions for performing this task for many computer models. Remove and reseat the hard drive firmly into the mounting bracket.
  • Test the hard drive . If you get a hard drive error message, you can test the hard drive. Many computer problems are related to soft failures (or degraded performance) on the hard drive. The HP Hard Drive Self Test will repair soft errors on the hard drive, but it will not report the errors. After the test is complete, restart the computer to see if test repaired the problem you may been experiencing. To run the hard drive test, turn on the computer and press f2 .
    • If the System Diagnostics screen displays, select the Hard Disk Test to run the hard drive test. Allow the Quick and Long Hard Disk Self Tests to run.
    • If the BIOS Diagnostics screen displays, select Primary Hard Disk Self Test . Allow the Quick and Long Hard Disk Self Tests to run.

    Windows XP Missing configuration?


    Sounds like you may have bad RAM. Try removing all of the RAM modules on your motherboard and put only one in the first slot. Start the computer and see if it works.

    My HP monitor (f50) has malfunctioned


    Try these 2 steps if they don't work get back to me :)

    Step 1. Connect the video cable and turn on the computer. What happens?
    • If the monitor screen remains blank (no startup screens or onscreen display messages), the monitor must be connected to another computer using a different cable to determine if the monitor is bad. Skip to the Step to connect the monitor to another computer.
    • If the monitor is capable of displaying boot screens but is unable to display Windows, use the following steps to set the computer to a compatible resolution:
      NOTE: Find the native display resolution for your monitor in the User Manual or in the product specifications for the monitor model. If you are unable to find the native display resolution for your monitor model, temporarily use 1024x768 for troubleshooting purposes.
      1. Turn on the computer and press the F8 key repeatedly when the first startup screen appears.
      2. If you are using Windows Vista, select Enable low resolution video (640 x 480) , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. To set display settings that match the monitor, use the steps in the HP support document, Changing Display Settings, Background Image, and Screen Saver in Windows Vista . If you are using Windows XP, select Enable VGA Mode , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. Continue using these steps to set display resolution. If you are using Windows 98 or ME, select Safe Mode and perform the following steps to enter into a standard VGA mode:
        1. Once Windows opens to the desktop in Safe Mode, click Start , and Run .
        2. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter . The MS Configuration Utility window appears.
        3. Click the Advanced button, and select VGA 640 x 480 x 16 if it is available.
        4. Click OK and restart the computer.
        5. After Windows opens, click Start , and then click Run .
        6. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter .
        7. Click the Advanced button, and remove the checkmark next to VGA 640 x 480 x 16 .
        8. Click OK . Do NOT restart the computer.
      3. After Windows opens, right-click on an open area of the desktop and select Properties (Windows XP, 98/Me) or Personalize (Windows Vista).
      4. In Windows Vista, Scroll down and click Display Properties . In Windows XP, 98, or Me, click the Settings tab.
      5. In Windows Vista, select the native display resolution size using the Resolution slider. Set Colors to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows XP, select the native display resolution size using the Screen resolution slider. Set Color Quality to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows 98 or Me, select the native display resolution size using the Screen Area slider. Set Colors to True Color .
      6. Click Apply after you have made your adjustment. The screen should blank out temporarily and come back.
      7. If you are satisfied with the new display settings, click Yes on the Monitor Settings windows. If you are not satisfied or if the screen just goes black, wait: Windows sets the screen back to the way it was before. Try another setting until you find a display configuration that is compatible with the monitor and meets your needs.
        NOTE: If the native resolution is not available, download and install updated video driver software for your computer. Updating the video driver software can add more resolutions (graphics modes).
      8. Restart the computer. The monitor should now display a full screen image in high quality. You are done.
    Step 2: Connect to another monitor
    Using a different cable, connect the monitor to another computer that has video. Turn on the monitor and the newly connected computer. What happens?
    • If the monitor works, the video hardware on the original computer is likely to be the source of the problems. You can try connecting the original computer to another monitor that works to update its video drivers.
    • If the monitor remains blank, repair or replace the monitor.
