Monitor works fine on another cp . Just not on mine

I checked the monitor on another Pc and it worked fine. So I guess its an interanl problem. I have a Gateway GM 5084 model with Amd Athlon 64x 2 and an Nvida GE Force 6100 Intergrated graphics card with PCI express slot avaliability. Is it my Video card that is Not working or can it be related to my mother board or processors? Any help is greatly apprieciated. If you read this I thankyou for taking the time to look at it

It could be a resolution problem Try starting in safe mode, by pressing F8 as the computer starts. The right click the desktop and go to personalize or display settings depending which version of windows you have, and change the resolution. If this doesn't work, try restarting again back in safe mode and go to control panel>system>device manager and click on the + sign next to display adapters. Right click properties and click on update driver. If this still doesn't help check that your graphics card is seated correctly into the motherboard and the leads from the monitor to the pc are secure.

Everytime I start my machine, when it gets to windows, the screen goes dim and, I think, booting stops

what PC, all you posted is a screen.
we can not guess 36 years of PCs ever. sorry
my guess is PC is not HP, only the screen
this is near new screen
turn it on, and push the screens menu button.
see the OSD screen, now? sure, and that means the screen is ok.
and the PC is dead.
so post why is PC dead,get 100 reasons.
this position (ROOM LOC?) thing fools me, totally, sounds like bad cable.
or PC has loose parts.
if the PC fails with a borrowed monitor, is bet that makes sense ,, no?
The PC turns on,
the PC makes fan sounds
the PC dvd eject button works
the PC BIOS screens wall work
stop, i stop here we go father easy past BIOS working,
the BIOS hot key will not be the HP key cause yours is not HP

Asus as cm1630 cp ws 830/18g has no video

Check to be sure the monitor cable is seated properly on the computer and the monitor. If still no input, try a different monitor (borrow one from a friend, family, or another computer). If another monitor works, your monitor was bad.

My hp pavilion a 1140n turn on fine but my monitor no display pc running good

Try using a different monitor to check if it is your monitor that is indeed bad.

Also, try using a different cable if possible.

If the computer is at fault (different monitor didn't work either) then you can try installing a graphics card.

Look inside your computer and see if a slot for a graphics card is there. This will be a single unique slot unliek the others in the system.

The video above shows how to choose and install a video card.

I recommend for purchasing

Monitor fine with 1 PC, no RGB input after windows load on other?

Lower the resolution on the computer to 800 x 600 and then hook up that monitor see if it at least accepts that and doesn't go black. You may have to go into safe mode to do it plus then go back into regular mode.

My pc wont recognise my Musteck 600 CP

Try connecting the device on a different port and check if it will be detected if still not power off the device for 30 seconds and if still not detected you can use a different data cable for this unit so we can check if the cable is working fine........
