It should be a power unit problem.
I had a same problem right after the 1 year warranty is expired and fixed it by myself.
I found 3 broken capacitors in a high temperture area on the power unit PCB and replaced them.
So far it is working good.
I think this is a defect of design of the power unit.

The monitor works ok, but I have to switch it on and off to display anything on the screen. I have changed the graphics card but to no avail. The display info is getting to the monitor but doesn't


Check your cable between the computer and the monitor, It may be a non-sensing cable which will be missing one of the pins so the monitor is not getting the correct data from the computer.

Samsung Syncmaster 2032BW problem


Hi Ray. Does anything happen to the Mac's display or is it just on the monitor? In system preferences go to the Displays section, and with the 'Display" tab selected, click on the Detect Displays button.
This normally lets the Mac work out what is attached and sets the parameters accordingly. If it still doesn't work, try using another video cable. I have have had a number of instances with external monitors where the problem has been a faulty lead.If that still fails. Try the monitor on another device if you can - does it work there?

My Dell Optiplex gx260 Pentium 4 Flat CPU doesn't Display anything, and Power light is Orange.. Please help me out


You say the power light is orange--I'm assuming that you mean the monitor.
This indicates the monitor is not receiving a signal from the computer.
Assuming that the computer actually powers up (fan runs, you can hear the hard drive being accessed, etc) then your problem lies in the video card.

If, on startup, you do see the BIOS info and maybe even the Windows splash screen before your monitor goes dark, then the problem lies in the video card drivers. In this case, starting in safe mode will work and allow you to download and install new drivers.

My computer's tower turns on but it doesn't display on the monitor, the monitor shows the normal Self test box so the monitor doesn't seem to be the problem. Also when I press the power off...


Make sure that the cable is connected from your computer to the monitor, and if it is wiggle it and push it in all the way. If it has screws, screw them in. If that does not work, check that your monitor is on the correct input (if it has multiple) then see if anything comes on the monitor. If nothing happens you should buy a new cable from the store. If all of those steps do not work your computer or your monitor might have a more serious problem.

Hi ! i have dell vostro 1510 and which is not booting up. even the bios is not showing up. Black screen appears and the loading lights blinks for 4-5 times then nothing happens. Power button is glowing...


- try to plug an external monitor on your laptop
- if you can see a screen on the external monitor, then you have a faulty LCD
- if you don't see anything on the external monitor, then you have a faulty motherboard

Please help.. my monitor has no display and my don't even beep. the LED in the monitor turns back to orange after few seconds. cpu, disk drives and ram are working..


This is one of the serious problem that arises because if you set your monitor with a high resolution with high frequency, then the monitor doesn't display anything as it's frequency is out of the rang or limit of the monitor's actual resolution capacity. Each monitor will have a limit of max frequency that is said to be the Refresh rate (for each and every resolution setting the display is refreshed.) When high resolution is set with high frequency that is not supported by the monitor, it then display a message like "frequency out of range". If you press ESC key within the few seconds of this setting, it will revert back to its initial resolution. But if you continued with the setting of same High resolution with High frequency, the monitor is not going to display anything because its frequency is out of the range. Most of old monitors like CRT's etc doesn't support 1024×768 at a refresh rate greater than 60Hz.

When I try to turn my computer on, it won't do anything. All I see is the gold light blink in the lower left corner.


Hi mcfarlandger,

If you see power lights but nothing appears on the screen, it could be a "POST" (Power-on Self Test) problem or simply LCD problem.

Here are some steps that you can try.

1. Remove the battery and the ac adapter then press the power button for at least 20 seconds to drain electric charges left from the system. (You may need to repeat this step to get it work.)

2. If above step doesn't work, try to plug in an external monitor and see if you get display from the external monitor. You may need to press the Fn + F10 or F6, depends on the key designed on the keyboard to toggle between displays.

3. If you get display from the external monitor, I'm sure your having problem with the LCD components. In this case, check and replace faulty LCD backlight, LCD cable or LCD inverter. The LCD inverter is often a culprit.

4. Try to reinsert the memory module/s (RAM) of the unit, try using one RAM at a time to see if it works. A faulty RAM will cause the issue not to POST.

5. If reinserting the RAM doesn't help, most likely your motherboard needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Hi Unfortunatly it sounds like an internal fault with the monitor inverter circuit shutting down only cure would be to take covers off and testing to be done by a tech.

Monitor Acer Problem


I agree it isn?t the monitor but I would suspect the video card you are connecting it to or the PC itself. Generally if a monitor doesn?t detect a video signal it will go into hibernation mode, typically displaying a no signal warning and changing the LED color from green to amber. When you start the computer is anything displaying at all? Are you sure the PC is powering up and booting?
