Are these buttons on your monitor? or Keyboard?

if they are buttons on your monitor you may have installed a graphic or colour balancing piece of software (maybe associated with an update to GFX card software) This would explain the reason they work so briefly, as this is the time in which the process that is causing your trouble, starts up.

Press Alt+CTRL + Delete to access the Task Manager in windows... go to the Process' panel, then take a good look thru to check if there are any graphic management software tools in startup.

try stopping some (this cannot do harm as all will reset on next re-boot) and seee if this helps.

Of course this possible solution check is only for monitor related issues.... if it's keyboard, then it's a totally different issue... Although still likely to be recent software installation related.

Could also try typing msconfig in the 'run' box to get access to a selective startup which will let you narrrow down the new and possible baddies - however i should warn that you Can Do more trouble with MsConfig that you aimed for if you are a novice user.

give more detail and i will attempt to help you further.

good luck

2 possible solutions; #1) unplug the motor for 3 mins then replug (resets memory) #2) on back of motor is a "learn button" - press learn button for 3 sec, then press your remotes for 3 sec.

Monitor power button just flashes blue then yellow , does not work on other computer or other cable. Though it has to be solid yellow, It flashes even with no video cable. Thanks in advance for any...


If you have the power button "on" on the monitor and you unplug the vga cable from your monitor you should get a messege about the cable being unplugged. Sometime the inverter in the monitor can go out and you will be left with a very dim screen or no image at all. You can call up a local computer store and see if they can test the monitor for you. Taking the monitor into a repair shop will more then likely cost you more then a new monitor. I would check to see if the monitor is still under warranty or simply just replace it.

Best of luck..
