    Thanks for the info. As it turned out I had to download new drivers for the geforce 6200. Nvidia pretty much walked me through the process to download as well as clear out the old version. Once it was done, rebooted and everything worked. Thanks again, you were on the right track.

Sounds like the PC has too high a screen resolution set for the TV to handle
Re-connect PC to PC monitor , change display resolution to 800 x 600 (right click desktop, properties, settings, slider marked "screen resolution" to leftmost side, save settings.
connect PC to TV, TV should be able to display PC data now.
Go through same procedure with PC connected to TV, move slider to 1024 x 768 posn. (depends on TV model as to what it can cope with) - *apply* this setting & see if TV is able to display at this resolution.
If it is, desktop will appear - if not, you'll get the warning box generated by the TV...don't worry, in 15 secs, the PC will revert to the old (working) setting.

Hope this helps.

Hello, I have a lg lcd monitor. w1941s model. when I start my computer, it work for sometime. then it goes blank showing only the LG logo. then the power button doesnot work. it hang up glowing. again


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Take it to a repair shop.

I have an Envision EN 7100s monitor. It works just fine when I run the computer in safe mode, but when I try to start the computer normally the screen will go blank after the microsoft logo and say "Input...


Doesn't really sound like the monitor is the cause. The video driver sounds like it might be failing on load. You can try starting in safe mode, open device manager and remove the video card from the hardware list (You can also do this with add and remove hardware in the control panel of XP). Restart and let windows install fresh drivers on start up. This may help if the driver installation has been corrupted. Note that you will need the original driver disk if you want the extended options of your video card, otherwise windows will install the generic windows driver which in some cases is no different from the factory driver.

Hope this helps,
Gill

It is all black, as if off


when starting windows press f8 key before the windows logo shows up > go to safe mode > click start>control panel> display>adapter>list all modes> choose 800x600 x 16 colours > apply > close > reboot to normal xp. OR When f8 key pressed > choose VGA mode. If this does not work then change the VGA Cable (borrow from someone if its TFT to test)

New 19" flat screen monitor only shows analog on the screen


finwiz,
When you on your computer, does any thing appear on the screen, some text display/logo etc.?
If yes then:
  • After making power on your computer start pressing F8 till boot option menu appears.
  • Then select safe mode and if it works, then goto device manager and re-install driver for your display.
If no then:
  • Check out the connection from monitor to computer and try. If still no luck then post comment whats you did and what was the result.

Thanks

Will come on-then say no signal


If you mean the monitor is fine during the Windows booting process and then just as your about to go into Windows goes black then do this...

Start the computer
When the bios screen goes start pressing F8
A Windows Startup screen will appear
If you see the Windows Logo (the loading one) then hit reset and try again
At the Windows Startup page, select Safe Mode and press enter twice.

Windows will now load. Go into Device Manager (Start-Settings-Control Panel-System-Device Manager)
Select the video card, and uninstall it.
Restart Windows
Reinstall your video card using the Installer package (if it's ATI or nVidia)

If this dosn't work, then post back and we will try something else
