    We got it up and running!! We hooked up the new modem and checked all the connections and reconnected to the power. Thank you for the input, it helps to have others' thoughts.

    Sorry i cut the last one short The expansion slots are where you plug the daughter boards into the motherboard. Should be three or four white slots and possibly one short brown one. This is where you would plug in your modem/video card/network card/etc. on older systems. Nowdays most of this comes integrated on the motherboard. But some still are the old style. The slots themselves can go bad,the drivers can go bad,or the board controller can go bad. As you can see there is pleanty to go over here so i hope you are ready in-case this is not a quick fix.

    Sounds like your expansion slots on your motherboard are failing. Try to hook a different monitor up to the computer and let me know what happens. Then we will take it from there

It may well be dead. Try testing the monitor on another working PC. Also try a working monitor on the problem PC. Then you will know whether it's the monitor or the PC graphics card that's faulty.

Monitor goes black


Sorry to have to tell you this, but this is common in LCD monitors. The reason that it is going black when it boots is for one of two reasons. You either have a bad power supply that powers your LCD or your LCD's backlight is blown. These can be repaired or you can purchase a new one. But if it goes black 9 times out of 10 is because the backlight is bad. These can be repaired!

No, this is typical problem for defective inverter. Mostly screen appears for some seconds and then turn to black. If you are technician, you can use this link :-).

Monitor Black, Green Power Light Flashes Monitor is 4 yrs. old


Assuming you've already checked your driver and system settings, tried a different monitor, and checked the cable and connector pins, this would almost certainly be a problem with the power or signal circuit board inside the monitor.
