Monitor takes a long time to come on.

I have a ProView 780. It has always worked fine but now when I turn on my computer the green light on the monitor flickers for a while and the screen is black for a long time. One time when it came on all I had was the background and no icons. I rebooted and it finally came on after a while. Is something wrong with my computer or is it the monitor. I do not know much about computers and would appreciate any help I can get. Purchased my computer new, have a samsung monitor and compaq presario box---once I turn on my computer the monitor takes a long time to come on

    Mine started doing exactly the same a few days ago. Replaced power cable and now the moniter does come on but very very dull. If I turn it off and on again it works fine for all of 6-7 seconds if im lucky then goes dull again.

    Same thing.
    Time to come on increases.

I have similar prob when i boot up pc after been shut off for while....it takes bout 2 minutes to come on. In my opinion this is not a motherboard issue whatsoever. I hook different monitor up and it came up just fine......So it is obviously the LCD monitor that is the issue.

SOURCE: Monitor takes a long time to come on.

Hi..there,
Well, it's not your monitor. It's seems your PC had lots of garbages or spywares. Need to cleaned out all the junks in your C: Drive...Right click on your C: Drive and click on properties and click on Disk Cleanup after that check all the boxes on right handside. Then click OK and Yes. That should clean up all the junks in C: Drive. Cleanup all the junks every Weekend. Then run a virus scanned for virus and spywares...and set to scanned very night...

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


Sounds like either there is a bad connection from the computer to the monitor, or the monitor has a faulty power regulator, causing the monitor to overheat prematurely, and shut off.

Built in monitor speakers not working


Did u check with the volume button on the side of the monitor.
Also pls check the connections and also the volume settings in windows.

If they dont work, then try with external speakers to find out if it is a problem with the mionitor or the speakers.

Monitor works on one computer, but not the other


The problem is not your monitor, but the video card on your computer that it doesn't work on. If the video output on your computer is built in, residing near your keyboard / mouse ports, you can purchase another video card to put into your computer and connect your monitor up to that instead. If it attaches to a separate card inside your computer, just replace it. There are three kinds you can get, AGP, PCI, or PCIe. Make sure you get one that will fit inside your computer.
