Screen keeps saying analogue saving mode and keyboard fails to repond


Hello

When the monitor states "ANALOG / ANALOGUE" - that is letting you know that the video input that the monitor is trying to use is the analog connection (the VGA - blue with 15 pin - connection).

If you are using the DVI (white connection that is about twice as wide as the VGA) or a HDMI connection, the monitor is not recognizing these inputs. You may need to use the buttons on the monitor to manually switch to the correct video input.

You state the keyboard fails to respond. Please verify the PC is actually on (press the eject button on the CD/DVD drive and see if it opens). Once you verify the PC is on and responding, press the NUM LOCK / CAP LOCK and see if the lights on the keyboard change.

If they do not change, try rebooting the PC and see if this resolves the issue.

"HP Pavilion m7580" is not


Hello,

To verify whether it's a no POST issue, press NUM LOCK or CAPS LOCK key and check whether the CAPS LOCK or NUM LOCK lights are lit or changes when you press on it. If it doesn't then it's a No POST problem.

However, if the computer screen shows the HP logo or a display then it's POSTING and is experiencing a No BOOT issue.

If the NUM LOCK or CAPS LOCK responds when you press it but there is no display, check the connection between the monitor and the CHASSIS or CPU.

If you have verified that it's a No POST issue because CAPS lock is not responding, you need to open up the chassis to do a troubleshooting procedure. Be sure to unplug the chassis to all the connections especially the power cord. Drain the power by pressing and holding the power button from 8-10 seconds.

Here are the things that you need to do after you open up the chassis.
1. Reset the Memory sticks. Connect the CHassis to the power and monitor. If no go, try turning on the computer without the memory sticks. The aim of this troubleshooting is to see a display on the screen. Any display would be a good sign. If no go. Put the memory stick back in.

2. Remove the CD drive. Turn on the computer, check for development. If no go, proceed to step 3. Just leave the cd drive removed

3. Do the same thing with the other devices like the hard drive and other devices inside. Your aim is to see a display.

Let me know if what happens and I'll get back to you.

Once you see a display. Let me know by replying to this thread.

Well i just bought a dell optiplex gx620 (full tower) and im trying to install windows pro but every time i put the disk in the pc and turn it on it keeps saying that theres no bootable device...so i tryed...


From the info you supplied...

Boot (power off/on) and go into the BIOS (Usually hit F2 as it powers on and the white bar goes across the bottom for self test).
F2 will probably be listed as an option along the top (right). You only have a limited time to hit the key.

One of the menus should show what devices are connected (CD, hard drives). Make sure the system sees you're hard drive and CD-DVD. If the CD/DVD is not listed anywhere I would guess it is not installed correctly. I am not sure if the 620 will support an external USB C/DVD. This is another option and again, boot order would have to be changed.

Another menu has boot order. Make sure CD/DVD is at top of the list since you stated the drive is blank. I would make sure hard drive is second in the list. Save/Exit BIOS

Be CAREFUL MAKING any CHANGES to the BIOS.

Windows 7 does not require 4gb, that is the recommended level for windows 7 ultimate. Does this happen with any programmes or specific ones? also, do you have a seperate graphics card or is it built onto the motherboard?

Online video turns white on full screen. I still have sound, but no video.When I exit full screen it comes back. I'm running XP.


Go to the Start Menu. Go to Control Panel. Locate the Icon "Device Manager". Once the dialogue Box "Device Manager" appears, locate and click on "Sound, Video, and Game Contollers".
Click on the + button to the left of this and double click on each controller. When the dialogue box opens, go to Driver and select "update driver".
After updating each driver (if update not available a message will appear telling you that you have the most current or best currently installed).
Also, if prompted, select to check Internet automatically. Do not search the computer files: you will not find them here (unless you manually installed drivers, and haven't enabled them yet).
Please let me know if you need further assistance if this does not change your video status. Here is one other thing you can try:
Update your Adobe version. This is usually the program that is used when viewing videos online. Also, when attempting to play a video - watch at the top of the screen for a yellow bar - usually a message will appear alerting you of this, which indicates you need to enable the Active X for this particular website. I doubt this is the case, but I often run into this, and very seldom notice this yellow bar. The message does not always appear so be alert of this just incase.
Being this is a desktop, you may need to upgrade the video card as well. You shouldn't have to: You can also locate the video card installed in your computer through the Device Manager and update the drivers for it as well.
Let me know how or if any of this helps.

My logitech cordless mouse keeps throwing the cursor to the top or bottom of the screen while im trying to use it,and its slow to respond when im moving the mouse


Ok, if your mouse is throwing your cruiser around and it is lagging this may mean that you have too much interference between the mouse and the receiver plugged into your computer, first check to make sure that you do not have to many objects between the mouse and the computer and if your mouse uses batteries then you need some new ones in their. If that still doesn't work try unplugging the receiver from the computer and a few seconeds and plug it back in this also works sometimes.
