Here is phillip support page, enter your model number of your monitor and look for the drivers section. you should be able to view the monitor even without the exact driver as windows loads it's generic driver . if you are getting no picture at all at startup , check all your cables and your video card, start the computer in safe mode , go into the controll panel- system-hardware-device manager and make sure there are no yellow exclamation points next to devices, these will cause conflicts with you trying to load new drivers.
Post your findings here and we'll move on to another step.
Regards!

Nothing on the monitor, the computer powers up and e machine f2 comes up on the screen then goes blank


hello bradprice258

I am assuming you have an LCD monitor

when the computer turns on look carefully at the front face of you computer case, there are two small LED lights. one is power and one is hard disk activity.

look at the one for hard disk activity. watch it for a few mintues, if it is activly blinking and then turns off or becomes a random blink then it means the possibility is a faulty monitor. LCD monitors do that once they age or get hit by power surges or black outs.

if both lights in front of the case go out as you loose display then the problem is with Po itself. could be bad power supply of main board.

hope this has been of help.
please do leave comment if this has helped.

    I have a compaq sr2010nx when i turn on the powersupply comes on it lights up nothing to the monitor pulled memory out and it gives no beep at all could this be a bad mobo


    It would seem you've lost your display driver or it has become corrupted somehow. If you have created a start up disk, insert it into the disk drive as soon as you boot up the computer. If you do not have one you'll need to go to another computer and create one. This should rectify your situation, if not it is very possible that your monitor is at fault, try to borrow one from a friend and this will eliminate all possibilities. Thasnk you, Dana

    I heard the computer on but I do not see desktop


    Here are some troubleshooting ideas:

    1. If you have a LCD monitor, look for a source button on it and try pushing it (with the computer running) and see if it cycles between analog and digital.

    2. If you don't have a source button, try the auto adjust button.

    3. Try unplugging the power from the monitor for 30 seconds, then plug it back in, and turn the monitor back on.

    If none of the above works, then it's possible that your video adapter isn't working.

    If possible, try connecting another monitor to the computer and/or connect the monitor to another computer. (I know most people don't have a second PC, maybe a friend or neighbor can help with this.)
    This will help you isolate where the problem lies. If the monitor works, then the video adapter may be bad. Depending on the model of the computer, you may be able to have a new one installed.

    Hope this helps!

    Hp laptop computer will not boot up. The power comes on and you can not hear the hard drive start spinning - no hard drive clicking either. You can hear the fan start blowing....but nothing on the lcd...


    You hit the problem right on the head, NO BOOT. All computers have to have a system disk to read whether it is on a floppy or hard drive. your computer is not reading your hard drive. It either is really screwed up from the boot, or it has been formated and has nothing to read. Try installing a new copy of windows or inserting some type of bootable disk. if that works, Install your windows operating system. Insert a disk in your D drive or your CD drive letter and turn the computer off, restart the computer and the disk should boot your computer. Good Luck.

    My computer monitor has somehow turned its brightness all the way down, possibly due to me choosing a new screensaver which was already installed on my computer. Sadly, my monitor, an Emprex LM-1704...


    Find yourself a dark room or wait for the night to come. The darkest monitor adjustment could somehow reveal some light when there are no other light source available.

    You may also hook a conventional CRT monitor and make your changes (such as bringing your computer back to its original settings). The darkest adjustment in CRT monitor could still render discernible displays.

    how large the capacity of your hard disk drive? it is possible that would be the problem it is too dangerous that it will lead your hard disk to crash the system and damage the disk itseld that can create bad sectors on your disk. If you want to partition your hard drive, run the FDISK utility instead.
