Try to log in safe mode and if you didn't encounter the problem while on the safe mode, i assume there's a conflict with MS software distribution pack and video card driver. go to system restore if you can un restore point says software distribution pack then restore your pc before in an early stage before you have the distribution pack.

Monitor Mag innovision 796PF. 30% more Black screen

This sounds more to me like you are experiencing problem with your video adapter than the monitor itself. Have you tried a different video card? If you have onboard graphics, you may have to disable it in BIOS inorder to install a new graphics card. Monitors usually either work or they don't. If it requires you to change modes and readjust resolution, it is probably the video card.

Dell dimension 3000. Just Black Screen no Windows XP.

From your description, you were able to boot the machine properly in Safe Mode. While in Safe Mode, change the video resolution to the lowest possible (color depth does not matter at this point). You should also check that you are configured for single monitor operation if your video card supports multiple monitors. Reboot the machine normally. If all goes well, you can readjust your video settings for a higher resolution again.

Dell flat panel monitor -power button blinks green to amber - no

One reason that this is happening could be that it is on Power saving mode. This happens when the LCD monitor detecs an incorrect timing then thats the time that the LCD goes blank and the power botton starts to blink.

what you need to do is to turn the computer off. Unplug cables attach to the LCD make sure it is also off, once done press the power botton for a couple of 30secs to a minute and then release. After doing so re-connect all the cables and make sure that both ends is tight and secure once everything is ok turn the computer on same with the monitor to check if it solves the problem.

Hp on start up windows starts up but screen is black

we may need more details:
it may not hurt to check the obvios first: is your monitor data cable connected properly to your tower?... is your power cable connected? is the monitor on??
if screen is on but it's just black the simple possible causes are:
1. your brigtness settings are all the way down... adjust with bottons on your monitor
2. your monitor may be going bad... try to test the monitor on a known good pc
3. your video adapter/controller may be bad... borrow another monitor and test to see if you get a picture.

if after doing 1,2 and 3.. .3 is what you see as the cause, you may have to replace your video adapter.. a. if it's the one that came with computer... get/replace the video card.
if replacing video card is not working for you... try to check memory

Black screen not booting

check both your power and video connections to the monitor, sounds more like a monitor power issue.
if the connections appear ok, but screen still blank, try connecting a known good working monitor from somewhere else and see if it works with your pc, if it does, your original monitor is faulty, if it doesn't, you have a pc video issue.
