Monitor stuck in standby..?

I recently found my computer monitor stuck in standby after booting up (the best case scenario after tooling around inside to fix it, the motherboard screen).

Prior my motherboard gave one long beep, and three short to let me know that the memory on my video card was bad (So the booklet said), so I replaced my Nvidia 6200 series with a NEW 8600 series.

The computer worked on it's initial boot, prompting for software for the new card, I declined since I planned to format and replace the old drivers.

Now, it seems no matter how many times I take it apart, secure, tighten, and switch around the the power cords (everything else is plugged in according to the booklet for my motherboard) the computer monitor does not advance past standby mode, even though EVERYTHING is connected and powered.

The only other information I can give is that prior the chipfan died, and I used to get a prompt to check it, skip, or go to setup. The local stores only offer a heatsink replacement (not fan), so I'm going to get by and disable the fan from the setup menu...

That is if I can ever get past standby.

1. Yes, everything is getting power. There is a delay to power down, which hints to this. When everything is not connected, I can press power and shut off within seconds.

2. Looking for another power cord.

3. Going to check another monitor tomorrow, if possible.

    I'll go try this and grab some of the documents for further instruction. Using the family PC to wait for feedback.

  • FishySixty4 Dec 04, 2008

    It's an nForce4 Mainboard Model :

    133-K8-NF43-XX or 133-K8-NF41-XX



    The beeps ceased for one startup, then it happened again.

    The main problem is I can't even get the monitor to display.



    The Monitor is fairly old, it's a beastly box from my old Acer Aspire PC from years back.



    Right now, the PC is powered but the monitor light merely flashes.



    The new video card is a GeForce 8600GT, and is in the 16x PCI slot.

* Did the beeps go away when adding the new video card?

* Have you booted in "Safe Mode" (Press F8 before Windows starts).
In safe there are at least two options:

option - delete all the video adapter drivers then add the new one

option - change video adapter driver to Standard VGA

[If needed, write back for more instructions.]

* Also make & model of: computer (or motherboard) & monitor

There are actually a few things that can cause this
1. VGA/DVI cable unplugged
2. Monitor input settings wrong ..
a. for instance you are using the VGA (Blue) plug and the monitor is not set to auto or analog.

Sony vaio desktop all in one back light not working


To fix your problem please follow the below given steps
Step1
Power on your computer and wait until there should be an image displaying on your LCD monitor. Look directly into the monitor from a distance of about 1 inch way. Cup your hands around your face to block out the light in the room and get a clearer view of the LCD screen. Check to see if there is a faint light visible in the screen, which will indicate that the cold cathode backlight has gone out, or no image at all, which will indicate a different problem.

Step 2 Check the manual that came with your desktopmag-glass_10x10.gif LCD monitor or navigate to the manufacturer's website and find the model of cold cathode bulb that the monitor uses as a backlight. Purchase a corresponding replacement bulb

Step3 Power off your computer and then remove the monitor cable from the port on the back of the computer case. Disconnect the monitor stand from the monitor either by pulling out the plastic latches or by removing the screws holding it to the monitor's casing.

Step4 Lay the monitor face down onto a stable work surface such as a desk or table. Take out the screws along the edges of the monitor's casing and set them aside. Lift the back side of the monitor case off of the monitor and set it aside. Check to see if your model of LCD monitor has the back light directly exposed on the lower end of the monitor or if it is hidden behind another plastic or metal piece.

Step5
Remove the screws holding the plastic or metal piece over the bulb if there is one present and set the piece aside. Check to see if your model of monitor keeps the bulb in a plastic casing or if it is soldered directly to the metal. Use a soldering tool to remove the solder or instead use a rotary cutting tool to cut into the clear plastic casing around the bulb if it is inside a case.

Step6
Slide the new bulb into the open spot on the monitor and either solder it in place or use a piece of tape to cover over the opening you made on the plastic casing with the rotary cutting tool. Place the metal or plastic cover back on if there was one and reattach the screws. Set the casing back onto the monitor and place the screws back in.

Step7 Put the stand back on the monitor and then reconnect it to your desktop computer. Power the computer on and wait for an image to appear on the screen to make sure the back light bulb was installed correctly.

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

    Boot performance monitoring error


    >> Tired to reboot several times and still no video.
    >> Waited until the next day and the video was working.
    >> Very strange.

    Sounds like overheating, either inside the monitor, or on the video-card, or inside the computer.

    When it happens again, disconnect the data-cable from monitor from the desktop computer, and connect the data-cable to a laptop computer.
    If the monitor works, then it's not the monitor that is the problem.

    Also, when it happens again, have another monitor, and connect it, to see if the other monitor works, or if the video-card cannot "drive" either monitor.

    Your monitor have a bad condensatorin the PSU.

    The only thing to do is to replace the Power Supply Unit (very expensive) or if you have electronic tools, found and replace that condensator.(cheaper way...)

    If I Come Out Of Standby, Gateway FPD 1830 flickers, then black


    It's a bad back light inverter. These models are NOTORIOUS for them. It's a simple fix for a technician and not very expensive. I fixed mine about 2 years ago and it's still going strong.
    You can purchase replacement inverters and if you're handy with a screwdriver you can fix it yourself.

    LCD Monitor - green power light blinking - nothing on monitor


    Carol,
    It sounds like your computer is putting the monitor in power save or sleep mode, and the monitor doesn't respond appropriately. The monitor might be faulty, or overheating. Make sure there is adequate ventilation around the monitor, and that it is clean and free from dust around the vents on the case.

    Another thing to try is to check your computer's screen saver and power saving settings. Try turning off the "turn off monitor after [interval]" setting and see if the monitor still shuts off after several hours.

    Good luck, hope this helps.
