My monitor is a Soyo 19'' TFT LCD Monitor MT-NI-DYLM1986 without speakers, certified for Windows Vista, bought from OfficeMax. My pc is a Systemax Ascent Windows XP Professional SP2, x86 AMD 2GHz processor, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB hard drive space. My system froze several times while watching youtube videos or google videos. Had to reboot, now the monitor is showing three lines of weird characters on the initial page. I hooked-up my old pc to the monitor and the characters are still there.

Your windows 7 screen resolution is set too high and your display doesn't support it. There are 3 possible solutions to this problem: 1. Press F8 during startup and choose "Enable row-resolution video" 2. Press F8 during startup and choose "Safe mode" and change screen resolution there, then reboot. 3. You can always use another display (if you have one) to set screen resolution to lower value.
medproducts, Nothing new here. Check internal "switch-mode-power-supply board" only after devoting about 1-2 hours of viewing "lcd monitor disassembly" and "lcd monitor repair" video clips at YOUTUBE!!! Then you will need to make big decision!!! Let me and all who read this know what your plan of action is.
Thank you for answering those questions. That usually indicates it has a bad power inverter. From what i can tell, that monitor is a few years old. You can attempt to find an inverter online to replace it yourself (usually about $50 if you can find one) since its no longer covered under warranty, or put that money into getting a new monitor.
if the monitor has more than 1 source then make sure it is in the correct one. make sure the cable is fully inserted in the monitor and Pc. try another monitor to rule out a graphics card fault on the PC
If it uses AC adapter, then check the DC voltage at the DC plug to see if you get any voltage, if it use Direct power cord then it may have blown fuse inside the monitor, then you will need to open up the monitor. Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague http://www.badcaps.net
i have encountered this same issue with a monitor like yours its very common especially for lcd monitors there is a bad diode on your monitor board and you will not be able to fix this yourself you can buy another or use just a regular crt monitor or your best bet is to have it repaired im sorry and i hope this helps
rjmusvi, Sometimes the VGA connector at the rear of the PC needs to have it RESEATED 4-8 times to see if it returns the screen to NORMAL colors being displayed on the LCD panel!!! Do this with the POWER OFF to both PC and LCD monitor!!! Also check to see if any of the pins in the monitor to pc plug are bent or pushed down into the connector body. 12fixlouie on fixya
your monitor doesnt have drivers for it.. and doesnt need drivers for that matter. It sounds like you dont have the right drivers installed for your graphics card. here is a link to the drivers you need.
