    I'm pretty certain it's not the monitor as i had the same problem with my pc from day 1 of buying it four years ago although it was not aa serve at first. Any it came to a head last year when i took experet advice and they took it away told me it was the motherborad and replaced it. It all worked well for 1 year and now it'sn started again. If i turn it on and leave it for half an hour althought it still doesn't come on when i return and turn it on and off it then comes on.

Hi chorltonred1, this sound like a monitor problem. To check this try plugging in another (known to be good), monitor if at all possible. (This is the fastest way to check for a bad or going bad monitor).

If your current monitor is still under a warranty, contact the manufacture.
(Most monitors come with a one year warranty & some carry a three year warranty).

Include the monitor's model number & manufacture's name. It may be possible to check if it is warranted. This will also allow me to check if its possible to repair the monitor.
Let's not assume it is a problem with the motherboard just yet.

Good luck chorltonred1!

Inspiron 530 desktop--- computer boots up, runs just fine for a while, then monitor displays gabled multi-colored patterns, then evetually shuts down.


What is shutting down, the monitor or the computer. Check the power light on each for proper diagnosis. You either have a bad monitor, a bad video display card or a bad PC, specifically a power supply or motherboard. This is a classic symptom of something getting too hot and shutting down. One way to test the monitor is to plug it into something else for an a period of time and test. If you're PC is shutting off, try unplugging unnecessary peripherals, i.e. CD/DVD drives, floppy drives, external USB peripherals, etc. Start with just the video adapter, keyboard, mouse and monitor. Let us know what is shutting off, for further diagnosis.

System freezes-Video display=multi-staggered image(not legible)


It's either a loose connection from the motherboard to the video-display, or a partially-broken video-display, or the video-adapter in your motherboard.

Connect an external monitor -- if it looks OK when the internal LCD is "wavy", then your computer is fine.

But, since your say "happens to both screens", the most-likely problem is the video-adapter, which usually means that you will have to get COMPAQ to replace the motherboard.

When turning on my pc the led comes on but nothing happens


Sounds like your video card isn't working anymore. Most likely your video is "on board"; meaning that it's part of the motherboard configuration. Sometimes this can be resolved by putting a new video card in one of the PCI slots on the motherboard and setting your BIOS to use that instead of the integrated\on-board video. I've had times when this doesn't work either because the entire chipset is burned-out and malfunctioning. I would suggest that you don't spend alot of time & money on repairing or attempting to repair this computer. It's pretty dated compared to the technology that is available now.

K8NGM-V motherboard with AMD Sempron


Hi,

It sounds like the motherboard is shot. A key indicator of this is the lack of hard drive activity. It's not properly transmitting data to the drive, and I doubt it's registering with any of the other components either.

Unfortunately, you're going to have to replace the motherboard.

I hope this was of some help :)

My monitor went black, and the power switch just flashes.


is your CPU working properly? if that the case, your monitor is in need of a service.
reasons for why a monitor goes blank?
Reason 1: Wetness
The number one reason why computer monitors go blank is - wetness. Believe it or not, when your computer monitor is exposed to humid air, sometimes water can condense and accumulate in the monitor. This causes the monitor to malfunction and go blank. I've had this happen to my desktop PC at least three times before. What you need to do is to leave the monitor alone for some time and allow the water to evaporate. That usually solves the problem.

Reason 2: Faulty Graphics Card
The next reason why your computer monitor goes black is due to a faulty graphics card. The best way to detect this kind of problem is to connect up a new monitor to your PC, then check if you have a blank screen. If you continue to have a blank screen, then it's likely your video card is faulty.

Reason 3: Faulty RAM
This one is less obvious and less common, but it can happen. You might sometimes get bad RAM modules which prevent your PC from booting up even to the basic BIOS startup screen. To detect this kind of problem is more troublesome, you might need to remove those RAM modules and insert them into another computer.

Reason 4: Loose Connections
Another reason why your monitor goes blank is due to loose connections. The connection from the monitor to the mains is usually a culprit, as is the connection between the monitor and the video card. Check those connections before you declare your computer monitor as faulty.

Reason 5: A Short Circuit In The Motherboard
And the final reason why your computer monitor goes blank? It's possibly because of a short circuit in the motherboard. This is the most undesirable outcome of course, as you might have to replace your entire motherboard. However, it's possible that this can happen - so keep your fingers crossed and hope it doesn't happen to you.

have a nice day.

It is your laptop screen. You may have a cooling problem,screen or motherboard. Since this is your 3rd time trying to get this repaired. I would speak to a manager explain what has happened and demand a new replacement laptop.
