Re: Computer do not turn off
You have a System file problem Go to C:\ right click go to properties tools "error check" click to open then tick little box to fix errors and reboot . Windows on reboot will scan disk and fix any errors. If this does not fix it reinstall windows in "Repair Mode" Boot from Win CD after drivers etc are loaded will ask you what you want to do Press the R key to Install in repair mode. you will not lose any files doing so
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The message is being created by the monitor not Windows. The only thing you can do is look for the option to disable it on the monitor's menu options. NEC-brand monitors will have something call "Onscreen Notification" which you can disable. Hopefully your BenQ will have a similar option.
Try these 2 steps if they don't work get back to me :)
Step 1. Connect the video cable and turn on the computer. What happens?
the monitor screen remains blank (no startup screens or onscreen
display messages), the monitor must be connected to another computer
using a different cable to determine if the monitor is bad. Skip to the
Step to connect the monitor to another computer.
If the monitor is capable of displaying boot screens but is unable to
display Windows, use the following steps to set the computer to a
the native display resolution for your monitor in the User Manual or in
the product specifications for the monitor model. If you are unable to
find the native display resolution for your monitor model, temporarily
use 1024x768 for troubleshooting purposes.
Turn on the computer and press the
key repeatedly when the first startup screen appears.
If you are using Windows Vista, select
Enable low resolution video (640 x 480)
, and wait until Windows opens. To set display settings that match the monitor, use the steps in the HP support document,
Changing Display Settings, Background Image, and Screen Saver in Windows Vista
If you are using Windows XP, select
Enable VGA Mode
, and wait until Windows opens. Continue using these steps to set display resolution.
If you are using Windows 98 or ME, select
and perform the following steps to enter into a standard VGA mode:
Once Windows opens to the desktop in Safe Mode, click
In the Open field type
The MS Configuration Utility window appears.
button, and select
VGA 640 x 480 x 16
if it is available.
and restart the computer.
After Windows opens, click
, and then click
In the Open field type
button, and remove the checkmark next to
VGA 640 x 480 x 16
. Do NOT restart the computer.
After Windows opens, right-click on an open area of the desktop and select
(Windows XP, 98/Me) or
In Windows Vista, Scroll down and click
In Windows XP, 98, or Me, click the
In Windows Vista, select the native display resolution size using the Resolution slider. Set Colors to
Highest (32 bit)
In Windows XP, select the native display resolution size using the Screen resolution slider. Set Color Quality to
Highest (32 bit)
In Windows 98 or Me, select the native display resolution size using the Screen Area slider. Set Colors to
after you have made your adjustment.
The screen should blank out temporarily and come back.
If you are satisfied with the new display settings, click
on the Monitor Settings windows. If you are not satisfied or if the
screen just goes black, wait: Windows sets the screen back to the way
it was before. Try another setting until you find a display
configuration that is compatible with the monitor and meets your needs.
the native resolution is not available, download and install updated
video driver software for your computer. Updating the video driver
software can add more resolutions (graphics modes).
Restart the computer. The monitor should now display a full screen image in high quality. You are done.
Step 2: Connect to another monitor
a different cable, connect the monitor to another computer that has
video. Turn on the monitor and the newly connected computer. What
the monitor works, the video hardware on the original computer is
likely to be the source of the problems. You can try connecting the
original computer to another monitor that works to update its video
If the monitor remains blank, repair or replace the monitor.
Since this was a new out of the box computer, Safe Mode was not allowed. In order to change monitor settings (resolution), I had to use another monitor, in this case a newer CRT. With the CRT, the computer booted up, no problem. Once booted, I turned down the monitor resolution and saved. Now when the Princeton LCD was plugged in and the computer restarted, everything works fine. Now the resolution could be set to limits of the monitor.
plz resit the ram,if problem is not solved then try by removing the cable from the monitor to cpu and check is there is any message or white screen in the monitor,if you get any thing then your monitor is ok,otherwise your monitor needs repairing. If you get message in the monitor or the color changes then your motherboard display adapter needs to be repaired
When your computer is starting up, hit F8 and you'll see the safe mode, safe mode with networking, etc. screen...You should see a choice that says "enable vga mode". Select that and windows will start and the os will select a screen resolution for you. After that, everything will work fine...I hope.
Lower down resoluction and color quality to minimum on your pc, using 'display properties' in Windows. Connect the monitor back to pc with minimal settings. If it works is done.
If it still does not work there is a major problem with the monitor. In this case It should be opened and tested inside following schematics. In this case you may need to take the monitor to a service in your area.
You have set a resolution that is too high or incompatible with your monitor.
I assume you are using Windows.
Turn the computer on and immediately keep pressing F8 on the keyboard until the 'Windows Advanced Options Menu' appears.
Use the Up and Down keys to select 'Enable VGA Mode'
Press enter and your screen will work again when windows starts.
Now go to the display properties and click 'Advanced' then click the 'Monitor' tab and tick 'Hide modes that this monitor cannot display'
OK everthing and now you should be able to adjust the resolution without getting a blank screen again!
Good luck and come back to comment soon.
