Make sure your cable is the right one, and that it's truly well-connected to the monitor. My monitor stays in self-check when it's not receiving a signal from the ol' computer.

How to start dell monitor that is stuck on self test feature to start in safe mode? Or really I just need help getting it off self test feature


Hi, I would check the connections to and from the monitor. There will be 16 pin connecter. Make sure the pins are not damaged bent or broken. replace with same cable. Go to your local computer store and buy new cable. Good luck.

When I turn on the computer the monitor starts to come on and then it goes into safe mode and goes off. I first get a green light for a couple of seconds then it goes to amber.


Have you tried with another computer? I suggest to do it first, before assuming this is your monitor problem...as this is usually caused by most of computer problem not monitor.

Hello... Since this morning i have the same problem :((. My benQ FP73G won't start. The function led just starts for a second(turns green) and then nothing happens...


If your VGA connector is connected to a video card put it in your onboard VGA connector if the problem is still there. Remove the video card from your motherboard then boot on safe mode then adjust your video resolution. Here are some steps on how to boot in safe mode on your computer.
  • Turn on your computer.
  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected.
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • Right click on the desktop then click setting then adjust the resolution on lower resolution. The normal resolution for VGA is 640X480. Then click apply and restart the computer and in normal.
Hope this solve your problem.

Distorted display


Hi,

You could isolate the problem if it is a monitor / video card problem by removing the cable (VGA/DVI) and see if the self test feature will have a distorted display

If Yes - Monitor Problem
If No - Video Card Problem or Software problem

If no, try to go to safe mode by tapping "F8" once you turn the computer on.
1. Select Safe mode (Check for video distortion)
2. Select Enable VGA Mode (Check for video distortion)

If one of the 2 is distorted the video card has a problem

If one of them doesn't show any distorted video it means its a driver/software problem.

Hope this helps.

SOYO DYLM24E6 DISPLAYS OUT OF RANGE WAS TOLD MONITOR HAS A RESET BUTTON IF SO WHERE OR IS THERE A FIX FOR THIS MONITOR IT IS NEW


Restart your computer in Safe Mode
(or reconnect your previous monitor).

Set the screen-resolution to 800 by 600 at 60 Hertz.
Shutdown, connect the new monitor, and restart, and your Soyo monitor will be able to display something, using these "NOT-out-of-range" values.

Try changing the resolution to 1024-by-768, or 1280-by-1024,
and "test' these values, to see what values are "in-range" for your new monitor.

We can not seem to get it to recognise our new hp pc.


Start the New PC in safe mode. In safe mode the PC will have low resolution, and must be seen in any monitor.

If you cannot see safe mode picture, then check the cables. If you can see picture in safe mode, go to Personalize in control panel, find printer settings and lower resolution and change screen size.

Input not support, Acer V193w


if the monitor is DVI conencted to PCI card, the computer will not see the monitor, on boot up, only in the Windows mode.
replace the DVI connecting with a VGA connection on the monitor, if there is no VGA connection on the monitor then you need to get a VGA monitor and connect that to theVGA port on the motherboard connector at the rear of the computer.

Flatron LG monitor safe mode


Your monitor goes to Power Saving Mode when the signal it is receiving is not correct. In all probability this is not a problem of the monitor itself, rather you should check the connections and the computer the monitor it's connected to. For example you could try a different RGB cable and try it in a different computer.
