Sounds like the refresh rate of your video adapter is set incorrcetly, especially if the monitor is new to the system. CRT monitors could handle a wider rate range than the current LCD's.

The next time it starts working correctly, go to "display settings" and check the "monitor" tab. For a LCD monitor, the refresh rate should be between 60 and 72. Experiment with the different rate settings to optimize your display.

Hope this helps

Hp compaq dc 7100 , my problem is that as i start my pc than 4 beep with time interval 0.2 sec with led than after 0.5 sec it start again , remain continously


Are they Long Beeps? Does the RED led light on the front show up?
If there is no RED led light blinking, then the problem is your RAM.
If there IS a RED led Light showing up, then the problem is your Power Supply.

My medion pcmt6 will not turn on. Blue light keeps on flashing but still no joy. Was working fine yesterday. Can you help?


Some else had a similar problem and I posted this answer. Here bis it again:
There is an easy fix solution that works most times when your PC suddenly does not turn on. Dont ask why or how but follow it.
1. Disconnect the power supply, that is remove the power adapter cable.
2. Press and Hold the power button for 10 to 20 Seconds(very important 10 secs at least)
3. Put back the power adapter and try switching on your comp.

Monitor gets no signal


yes. it is almost positively the video card.
you can get a PCI video card and install that in an open slot.
if you don't need to play games, you don't need a fancy one, just a basic card.

Comp has a virus so now when comp is started it is bypassing the removable drives and going straight to the hard drive, windows starts and stays that it is unable to connect all drivers and then it turns...


if it's bios virus make a new flash update and if it software virus so u need to to resize your c:\ drive (use partition magic) and make a small 2 or 4 giga partition and install windows xp and with parttion magic hide other partitions and install a strong antivirus and then unhide ur partitions and scan (ahmed ghoniem)
