Monitor issue Hi...I had connected my pc to my tv and everything was up and running fine.Yesterday I came home and my kids had disconnected the s-video from the tv to hook up a dvd player.When I re-connected it and powered up my pc I no longer had the connection...the tv was no longer showing my desktop as it had ben before. I don't know why. I went into settings to check the configurations and seem to have problems enabling the second moniyor and can't figure out what is wrong. I don't know if the kids were on the pc and changed something?I went thru the troubleshoot and drivers etc. are all working properly...any ideas why I can't enable the tv as a second monitor? I appreciate any help...thank you.

Hi, I have a Sony VGC-JS160J Desktop yesterday my kids were play and it turn off and don't turn on again


Disconnect the power from wall outlet for about five minutes also disconnect video cable from the PC.
Connect the cable to PC and power to known working wall outlet and see if it turns on.
Try a known working monitor and see if that works.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck and have a pleasent day.

LCD monitor (viewsonic va720) "No signal"


You will need to disconnect the VGA cord that is connecting the monitor to the hard drive. Once you have that disconnected, try attaching another cord to determine if the cord is the issue. If you dont have another cord to test, then you will have to purchase another one from your local computer parts store and attach to determine if that is the issue you are having.

If the cord does not work, then you will have to take your monitor into a repair shop as there maybe an issue with the receiving port on the monitor.

I hope this was helpful and thanks for asking the experts.

DVD Does not work when using HDMI from Philips TV to Bravia


You could see if they will exchange just the unit and save both of you the hastle of checking and repackingit all. It does sound like the unit is faulty.
Or if your Bravia has more than one HDMI input then try on another, or a friends tv if you know some one with a HDMI tv in working order.

Amber Light and fan running


1st thing, disconnect everything but keyboard mouse and monitor, see if anything changes.

If the issue persists, ensure that all power and card connections for the motherboard are tight and secure. If you've added RAM or other parts, remove them. Reseat the RAM in the motherboard that came from Dell.

If none of those ideas have any effect on the issue, replace the motherboard.

Green light blinking screen blank


Hi Suzee,

Is the green flashing on the tower or the monitor?

If it is flashing on the monitor, then it might be tht the monitor is not gettign signal from the tower.
To check, disconnect the monitor from the tower and check the monitor. If you get a msg on the screen like no input signal or check video cable, then 99% monitor is fine.

Check for the power supply light at the back of the tower.

Disconnect everything from the computer and then press and hold the power button on the comp for about 30 seconds.

Then connect the cables and check if it is working.
