Monitor power indicator blinks but doesn t show desktop.

Monitor works fine with another PC, but changing video cards and/or putting them in different slots on the original PC had no effect - still a blank screen. Tried rebooting - same blank screen. Any ideas? Thanks.

    I don't know how to change the display properties or screen resolution of the original PC when nothing shows on the monitor. The same is true for the refresh rate. I have replaced the CMOS battery, which was very low, but still get nothing on the screen when I boot up this Windows XP machine. The original monitor works fine with another PC, but when I connect a working monitor to the problem PC I only get a blinking power on indicator and no other action on the monitor. Do you have any other suggestions? Thank you.

    Your solution calls for "after window desktop is opened." The desktop never shows itself. The screen remains blank. I cannot execute the commands you suggest if I have nothing on the screen to let me know what is happening. The problem IS that I can't see the desktop or anything else on the screen.

    The problem persists and seems to be a startup malfunction, rather than a monitor problem. I stripped the computer down to one hard drive, the CPU and heat sink, the RAM, and a video card and still got nothing on the screen. All of the components are working. I checked each of the four RAM sticks in another PC and they all show as working. The machine does not appear to run through the POST operation at all. There is no noise when power is supplied other than the power supply fan and the CPU fan. What's next?

Computer doesn't work with monitors, yet turns on properly (Not a monitor problem)


The usual problem with a completely blank screen, even with known working monitors is the graphics card. Relatively easy to put right with a new graphics card unless the graphics is built into the motherboard. This can be checked by looking on the back of the computer. Is the video outlet grouped with the keyboard, mouse etc sockets or separate from these. If it is with these the graphics card is built into the motherboard and would be uneconomic to do anything with unless the board takes a separate card. If you want to try a separate or different graphics card, make sure you get the correct interface, PCI, AGP, PCIe etc etc

My hp pavilion a 1140n turn on fine but my monitor no display pc running good


Try using a different monitor to check if it is your monitor that is indeed bad.

Also, try using a different cable if possible.

If the computer is at fault (different monitor didn't work either) then you can try installing a graphics card.

Look inside your computer and see if a slot for a graphics card is there. This will be a single unique slot unliek the others in the system.

The video above shows how to choose and install a video card.

I recommend Newegg.com for purchasing

Blank sreen.Fan is working. LED indicator is lighted but blinking rapidly.


Try a different monitor. If the second monitor doesn't work disconnect the power and then re-seat the video card. Also, check the RAMs - make sure they're seated as well. Start-up the computer and verify that the hard drive LED is blinking randomly - if it is, more than likely the computer is working properly. Your monitor could be bad as well as the video card. If the VGA port is on the motherboard, then you have an on board graphics card instead of a video card. In that case, the motherboard is bad.

LG LCD Monitor won't exit Power Saving Mode


Does your desktop/PC display show anything before the monitor goes into power save mode? If nothing comes up, its possible that you have a loose VGA connection or that your video card/motherboard are defective in some ways. Try using a different monitor.

If the other monitor works fine with your computer, try changing/lowering the screen resolution. If in XP right-click on the desktop and go to Properties, and select the tab for display settings and adjust the resolution. If in Vista/Win7, right-click the desktop and select Screen Resolution/Display Settings and adjust it there. Then check and see if your LG monitor works on it.

If the other monitor also doesn't show any display, most likely the problem is either with your video cable or your PCs video card/motherboard, not the monitor.

Hope that helps. Good luck

No video display


If the video card is built into the motherboard then try starting in safe mode and reinstalling the drivers from scratch. Download the latest drivers from the dell website. Safe mode will reduce the resolution and use a generic VGA driver. If your video card is plugged into a PCI slot try unplugging the video card and using a different slot and going through the same process. If you are still not getting any output to your monitor and you are positive the monitor is fine then you may need a new video card. To be sure, if the video card isn't embedded to the mother board, you could take it out and try it in a different computer. Hope that helps.
