Sounds like a driver issue. Check your drivers by going to: Start>Control Panel>Performance and Maintenance>System>Hardware Tab>Device Manager. Look for any yellow exclamation marks. This means the driver is bad and needs to be reloaded. Hope this helps.

Hi,
Restart your computer press F8 key from the displayed option select safe mode. After entering in to the safe mode go to device manager in my computer property, Hardware option. In that remove the display driver and restart your PC.

I have an acer 5310 i booted up and the screen is black i can get a display in safe mode i have tried all the tests i can think of but i am no expert i would be thankful for any help you can give


When you power up the computer press F8 key 5 to 6 times then you can see safe mode and other menu enter in "Enable vga mode" then go to start->control panel->display->settings.
Change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply .
But if you are not able to enter in VGA mode .
Then enter in safe mode and uninstall graphic driver then reinstall then set screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My s100-s1133 protege will not boot-up. The screen is full of checkard black boxes. Could this be the motherboard and if so, how much for the repair?


This is unfortunate, as that points at a display problem which in my experience with these laptops comes with very little chance of repair.
In my opinion it is caused by overheating of graphics processor due to the portege's relative small build. The fix would require dissasembly of entire laptop and re-soldering of graphics processor. This takes a technician using a microscope equipped station,( my father does this and makes over $40 an hour and I bet his company charges more. It is not cheaper than some new laptop models available today. The non-expensive fix but risky, would be to disassemble board and attempt to re-flow graphics processor connections by heating with heat gun. When I attempted this I lost entire display. My recommendation is to use external monitor if possible, which may prove futile since issue with graphics will likely be visible on that too. good luck

QUESTION: Monitor says:


Reboot your computer and press the F8 key right before you see the XP loading splash screen. You should get a menu that lists things like safe mode and vga mode. Select the vga mode option and hit enter twice. This will boot windows into 640x480 resolution and will allow you to change the resolution back to 1024x768 at 60hz

GX520 screen display message: cannot display this video mode


This means that the windows setting you have set can not display on your current monitor. There are two ways to fix this, one is to boot the computer in safe mode by pressing f8 after the POST screen and change the resolution and the other is to plug the computer into a different monitor to see if supports that resolution and then change the resolution in windows to a lower setting.

In case you don't know how to change the resolution in windows, follow below.

Right click on the desktop
Properties
Settings at the top
Move the slider to 1024x768
Click ok

Try rebooting. If that still doesn't work, try another resolution.

No display


I believe you are referring to a desktop PC.

You can press F8 repeatedly while booting to get the Boot options screen. It should contain a VGA Mode - this will boot your regular desktop with a lower resolution. Once in windows adjust the screen resolution to one that your Monitor supports.

Right click the desktop anywhere. Choose properties. Go to the right most tab "settings". Slide the screen resolution option until its where you want it. Click Apply. Do Not Hit any keys on the keyboard. Wait until it finishes changing resolution than click Ok. Close the Window.

If your screen goes black during this waiting 30 seconds should automatically revert it to the previous settings.
