Try to attach an external monitor to see if it is really booting up. And if it does boot up with the external monitor, problem is with the lcd... you may want to reseat the lcd cables inside. And if all else fails run diagnostics to see if lcd needs to be replaced. Could also be a software or OS issue that is why booting it up on an external monitor will help isolate the issue to check if there's an error message that will come up.

Thanks and good luck! =)

My dell lcd moniter display blank white screen only?


This should be posted in monitors. Does the screen display anthing during boot up of the computer? Does it appear that the computer is booting? If the computer seems ok, then plug the monitor into another computer. If it works there, then it is something with the computer, and we will need a bit more information to work with.

Hope this helps

LCD MONITOR DISPLAY PROBLEM


What your describing is a major video problem, poor color and it is blurr, It would be far cheaper to replace the monitor with a new one.

Our acer 19in LCD monitor goes blank after initial startup and msg "Input not Supported" appears. Startup msgs are shown but once Windows XP starts, this error appears


Your resolution is set above what the monitor supports.

when computer is first starting up hit f8 to get to boot modes.

choose Enable VGA Mode: This option starts Windows in 640 x 480 mode by using the current video driver (not Vga.sys). This mode is useful if the display is configured for a setting that the monitor cannot display.

When you are booted into windows you can then set your resolution to the highest that the monitor supports which is 1440x900

Let me know if this helps.

Acer Aspire 5052 nothing on LCD


If the LCD display worked until the processor over heated and then went blank, and would work again once it cooled down, then yes I do. As you described above, the screen going blank and blank still on reboot ( no time to cool down ), then the next day the LCD displayed again ( cooled down over night ). Appears to be directly related to the over heating problem.
But if the display problem progressed to the point that the PC would boot up cold and the display was still blank, then I would think your graphics card will need repair.

LCD monitor goes blank


It appears that the display resolution set in your display properties is out of the range that the LCD can display.

Try this.

Boot to the ENABLE VGA MODE by pressing F8 to get the Windows Boot Menu. If you can get to the desktop, then go to display properties, and see if you can change the resolution to higher settings and maintain video. (If the video blanks out, then it should revert to the previous setting in 15 seconds)
