Puddycat_196,

Did you just performed a clean installation to your system? Or maybe you just replace a new video card? The blank screen normally caused because of the resolution setting which is too high for the screen to support, or maybe the frequency setting, or you have incompatible video driver.

You can determine this problem by boot into your windows in VGA mode. What you have to do in order to boot into the VGA mode will be, press "F8" on your keyboard will you switch on your computer, you might need to press a few times, until you see the Boot Menu.
Choose "Boot with VGA Mode". More information about Advance Boot Menu will be available here

Once you successfully boot into windows in VGA mode, you can now adjust your display properties. Try to adjust from the lower range, like 800 x 600, and the frequency with the recommended one matched your Display Unit.

Good luck trying.

Wont boot/ says auto config over and over


Then use Recovery Console:
To boot from the Windows XP CD, insert it into the CD-ROMdrive on the problem system and press [Ctrl][Alt][Delete] to reboot thecomputer. Once the system begins booting from the CD, simply follow the promptsthat will allow the loading of the basic files needed to run Setup. When yousee the Welcome To Setup screen, press R to start the Recovery Console.

You'll then see a Recovery Console menu. It displays the foldercontaining the operating system's files and prompts you to choose the operatingsystem you want to log on to. Just press the menu number on the keyboard, andyou'll be prompted to enter the Administrator's password. You'll then findyourself at the main Recovery Console prompt.

After restarting windows use a system utility software like RegInOut.

Green display on boot up Please help


Check to see that there are no machine BIOS settings that could affect the monitor. Normally, the bios controls display until the OS takes over. If your XP screen after bootup looks fine, I don't see how you have a problem with your monitor setup under Windows.

Black screen on my desktop, and connect pins are broken & bent


You'll get either no signal or missing color(s) if pins are bent or missing.

Carefully bend pins back with small needle-nose pliers. Pin 9 is missing by default - if any other pins are missing or broken, you'll need an expert to wire a new VGA plug.

Computer's screen resolution not matching monitor's optimum


If you are using Windows XP, you can right click on your desktop wallpaper and select the "Display" text, this will bring you to a properties window. Once that comes up, there should be tabs listed near the top of the window, click the LAST tab. On the left of this window now should be a slider with numbers at either end. It is best to try out each setting one by one, simply by adjusting the slider one "notch" to the right each time, and pressing Apply.

If your monitor blanks out for more than 5 seconds, press ESC to go back to your previous setting, which will be your maximum supported resolution.



If you are on Vista, you can do the same thing, but instead of going to "Display", you have to go to "Personalization" on the right click menu, the select "Display Settings" in the window that comes up.

Emachines model 780 monitor comes on for one second then goes blank


CANNOT COMPUTE!!!! NEED MORE DATA! Is your monitor the problem or the computer? Try connecting the monitor to another computer. You can also try connecting a laptop with an external video adaptor to the monitor to test it.

Laptop screen died


Try pressing F8 at boot up see if the safe mode menu comes in. If it does boot into safe mode and once in windows change the screen properties i.e uninstall as when you reboot in normal mode the windows will recognize the monitor and install drivers for it. If you cannot see the sub menu after pressing F8 then there is possibly a power supply to the monitor problem or the monitor is faulty. You can get reconditioned units for this laptop will try eBay first. Check out the prices then decide to proceed or replace.

Colors on myomputer are way off


This may actually be something the monitor is doing, not windows.

ON the monitor itself, you should see some buttons. Usually there is a menu button of some kind. Anyway, press some of those buttons to see if a menu comes on the screen, and then navigate your way through some options and see if you can find a brightness or contrast setting. You then should be able to change the settings with the buttons on the monitor (left, right arrow keys, or someting similiar).

Hope this helps.
