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?

Either your PC video card has fried or it is in fact the monitor that is malfunctioning. Try plugging another monitor into the PC to test which is the problem. If the test monitor still doesn't display your desktop then it is indeed a problem with your system and not the monitor. In this case you will need to have a techinition assess the damaged components. If you can faintly see your desktop in the background then it may be a backlighting issue with your monitor.

Why does the Little Green Light on the front of my Monitor just Blink and the Monitor will not come on ?


The monitor is not getting any "signal" from the video-card.
Check that the video-cable is connected to both the monitor and to the video-card.

Try connecting the monitor to a different desktop/laptop,
to see if the monitor works "elsewhere".

Try connecting a different monitor to your desktop, to see if the video-card is the problem.

My monitor keeps blinking


Try connecting a different monitor. If it works fine then the problem would the monitor. If it still blinks, there may be a problem with the video card. If it is an expansion card, then try a diffferent videocard. If it is onboard, then you would have to replace the motherboard.

Computer screen goes into "digital power saving mode"


You should be able to adjust the settings on the monitor to prevent it from going into power save mode, or at least to delay how long it takes before it goes into power save mode. Press the menu button and look for settings that might disable or change power save mode.

Also, 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 newer 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 PC's video card/motherboard, not the monitor.

Hope that helps. Good luck

LG LCD Monitor won't exit Power Saving Mode

No Signal


Try the monitor on a different desktop or laptop computer.
If it does not work, then it does not work.
If it does work, then it could be the video-card on your computer.
Try a different monitor on your computer.
If it works, your monitor is the problem.
If it does not work, your video-card is the problem.

No picture - power button is blinking green


The "blink" is an indication that the monitor is *NOT* getting any signal from your computer's video-card. Either your video-card is the problem, or your computer is "sleeping", and you cannot "wake" it.

Reboot your computer, and watch the monitor, to see if anything at all is displayed.

Reboot with a different monitor connected, to see if anything at all is displayed.

If another monitor works, your monitor is the problem. If neither monitor works, it's the vide-card inside your computer that is the problem.

Power Light Blinking & Black Screen


A blinking blue light indiactes that your power-inverter board is not putting out what it should. It needs an overhaul which may be a simple as changing out the capacitors on the boards.
It could go beyong that to transistors or even a bad bulb.
It will have to be opened up to do that.
A picture may show visual signs of damage. If you can take one and email it to me , I'll take a look.

Monitor temporarily on


Hi, It looks like it may be receiving power from the computer but not a signal. Try a different monitor cable from the PC and even a different monitor. If doesn?t work, it could be the graphics card in the PC. Daniel
