Princeton VL1715 startup problem

When I boot my PC with the monitors vga cable pluged into the motherboards vga connector, everything goes as expected. BUT when I plug the monitors vga cable into my ATI 9600 Pro's vga connector and attempt to power up, I heard one beep and the monitors led remains orangeish in color. After 20 to 30ish attempts, I'm able to boot successfully. Also when I boot initially with the monitor plugged into the motherboard vga connector , and after sometime in windows, I can turn my pc off, move the vga connector to the ATI's vga connector and boot successfully. I've updated everything! HELP ME PLEASE!!!

Have you disabled your onboard video in the BIOS? Boot your machine with the vga cord to the motherboard. You need to get into the BIOS. Depending on the make of your machine you need you will need to hit the del key, f2, or even f1. Go to the periphrial setup and disable your onboard video. Save the BIOS turnoff the computer and plug the monitor into you vga card. That should do it. To change it back to your motherboards vga just reverse the instructions. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

Unpluged VGA cable now no display.

This is why it is never a good idea to SCREW in those little crown nuts from your cable to your VGA port. All connections on any PC should remain firmly connected, but unscrewed to prevent damage due to pulling, twisting or removing. All it takes to damage that VGA port is a single push to the wall from the front of your PC. If your VGA pins aren't touching on the board, and if there are no shorts, you can fix your problem by adding a Video card. Otherwise, you will need to de-solder and remove your on-board port completely and try again with the VGA card.

Out of range no display

Try pressing F8 when starting the PC, but BEFORE Windows starts loading. In the menu, select Safe Mode. Windows now startd with a very low resolution. You can right0click your desktop, select properties, then the Settings tab, and drag the reslution slider all the way to the left in Windows XP, or for Vista and 7, rightclick the desktop, sleect the lowest option, go to screen settings, and drag the slider all the way to the left.

After that, click OK, then restart your PC. Now you can try to increase the resolution step by step, and if it goes wrong start in safe mode and set it back a step. That way you will achieve the highest possible resolutioon (and better image quality)

I hope this helps,

Try booting in Safe mode, see if you get video

If you do, reboot in VGA mode, then adjust the refresh rate accordingly

Princeton LCD17 blinks off immediately

Check the VGA cord that connects from the PC to the LCD, try putting VGA cord properly to the LCD and PC, or change the VGA cord. saving mode indicates no signal from the PC. So either the PC is not booting up or VGA cord faulty.

Dell dimension monitor output broke away from motherboard and now i get no output to monitor to "wake it up", nevermind being able to see anything on it. As soon as i unplug the monitor cable from the pin...

Depending on how much it has broke away, you may be able to resolder it back on, or find someone who can. Other than that it will be a new board, I suspect.

It seems at least a few connections are OK, so probably worth a try, before scrapping it.
