Old Dell 8250 screen don't turn on at all. power light keeps flickering


Hi Natalie,
It sounds like the monitor has come to the end of its life cycle....You can verify that the monitor is bad by connecting it to another PC or Laptop using a VGA monitor cable, and seeing if it does the same thing.

Popping sounds only during video/ you tube on tv from my computer.


Because of the amount of voltage required to run the older-style "tube" televisions, many problems, sounds and noises occur in tube televisions than in the newer, flat-panel televisions. Sounds occur for multiple reasons, with some being just part of the normal process these televisions run through in order to operate. On the other hand, some of these noises may indicate a problem with the television that could warrant repair.


Worn Insulation
Voltage against metal. Inside your television's tube, there are many wire parts that electricity runs through in order to make the television run. Usually, these parts are insulated with a rubber or foam casing that prevent the sound of the electricity. If the insulation surrounding these components is thin, weak, worn or absent, you are bound to hear buzzing, popping and cracking sounds coming from your television. While this may not mean you have to run out tomorrow and get a new one, the chances are that your TV's tube is working extra hard to make it all happen for you, and you may want to start pricing new sets for the near future. b> Static During Warm-Up b> Just like rubbing your feet on a thinly-carpeted floor can cause static electricity, the same can also build up inside your television. If the noise is relatively subtle, only occurring when you first turn it on, and not overly-disturbing, the chances are that the cracking and popping sounds you are hearing are just the television's way of warming up and getting rid of the unnecessary electricity. Bad Lamp b> Deep inside the heart of your tube television, there is a light-bulb fixture that makes the entire unit light up so that you can see a picture. If the cracking and popping sounds you are hearing tend to go along with the picture on the TV becoming unclear, it could be that the picture tube is failing. It is very difficult and costly to replace the picture tube on a tube TV, so this is an instance where you may benefit more from buying a new television than taking the old one in for repair. Hope this helps.

I want to make my monitor speakers play sound


Make sure that you have the cable plugged into the monitor and going to the computer if there is one. Some older model monitors operated that way.

Click Start/Control Panel and check your Audio/Sound properties to make sure the drivers are ok. Look for either sound or audio or device manager under the control panel.

Does the sound work for external speakers? Does the sound work for a headphone? Did the computer and monitor come together when you purchased it?

Computer problem


during these beeps there should be pause between them at some point...in other words you may get 2 beeps/pause/1beep/pause/2 beeps noting the number of beeps and where the pauses are will help. From what you are describing and without more info it sounds as if you are describing beep codes, and they generally can give us a lot of information.

Montior wont turn on


Solid Amber Power LED is indicative of a Motherboard failure. Replace the motherboard.

The GX280 is one of many motherboards made during that time period that may have had capacitors that could fail due to a manufacturing defect if the capacitor. Check the capacitors on the motherboard to see if the tops are popped (there is a X engraved across the top of each capacitor, it the X is open, then the capacitor is bad.)

Pc starts and runs but wont boot up monitor shows no signal


1) When you turn on the computer, watch and listen for:

a) power supply fan, (power is on)
b) chassis lights (power is on)
c) ticking sound during memory test
(the BIOS POST is running)

d) beeps or rhythmical error codes
(POST failed, bad CPU, CHIP set, memory or video)

e) Monitor either comes on, displays garbled video,
displays a No Sync or No Signal message...

No depending on how far it gets:

Check power supply, cables etc.
Check video cable.
Check monitor with a different PC

Now unplug the power cord, with the computer still
on, this will help drain any internal capacitors.
Wait 5 minutes, then shut off the switches,
and open up the box. try the following,
one at a time:

2) Remove all I/O cards except the video card,
and don't plug them back in until the problem
is fixed. Unplug all the ribbon cables from
the mother board as well:

Hard drives, CD drive, floppies etc.

Make sure you make notes about how to plug it
back in, and cable orientation !!!

0) Re-seat all power cables: Red, Black Yellow harnesses.

1) Unplug and re-seat the video card

2) Similarly, re-seat all memory SIM/DIM modules,

3) Re-seat the CPU

4) Replace the video card

5) Replace memory, CPU or whole mother board,

Plug the good parts back in one at a time,
and test the machine.

Save for the power supply, there really is NO way to test
and isolate a bad module except by swapping/ trial and error
because of inter-dependencies.

For example a bad I/O card, any I/O card, can short circuit
the I/O bus, causing all other plug-in cards to stop working,
or even the main mother-board to freeze during the POST.

A bad power supply ditto.

A bad memory chip ... ditto.

The type of electronic instruments required to actually
test modern computers running at Gigahertz speed cost
hundreds of thousands of dollars, some cost millions, and
are only available to hi end manufacturers

Even the power supply will not power up for a voltage check
if the mother board is bad, although you can use a jumper
on the green wire to ground to force it on, when you unplug
the power connector from the mother-board, if you are brave.

Computer shops carry a lot of spare parts, and their service
department has gutted computers rigged up as test jigs.

They trouble shoot your system by either plugging your
stuff into their jigs, one at a time, or by plugging known
good components into your computer until the problem
is fixed.

This if of course possibly dangerous, since one bad part
can also fry other good parts that plug into it, or that it
plugs into. The compute shops, of course charge you
enough to make up for this.

If a computer is partially operable, it is also possible to
run software diagnostics.

If not, swap and pray is the only way.

Hope this helps

My Gateway Computer Screen is faded ,everythink looks like on the screen ...for example- you print something and no paint in the printer and the colors letters.etc. hardly visible ....so my computer screen...


It sounds like the voltages set in the LCD driver color references are dead. Maybe if you open it up it will have a loose voltage divider or bad LCD clock/voltage distribution boss circuit. It can of course be that the transistors on the panel are themselves destroyed, but check the below first:

Set the resolution to the monitor's native resolution (1680x1050), and change the panel's brightness and contrast to try and improve things. If it's not glare, make sure the temperature is okay for operating the monitor and perhaps check the video source (another video card or such.) Did the monitor always have this problem?

Comp won't start


Sounds like the pc power supply is bad... U can replace it, but if supply went out it may have damaged the motherboard. In future, have monitor blank off automaticlly and install UPS to supply pc. HP has histroy of weak power supplies.
