Question about HP Pavilion a1130n (PX769AA) PC Desktop

Screen going white computer stopping

Out of no where my computer just stops (power stays on) and the monitor goes white..sometimes with blue/black/red VERTICAL lines on it. If I am watching a video that stops as well.

I don't know if this is a virus or what. It's not the monitor because it happens to all monitors attached to computer.

It is happening 1-4 times per day and is killing me and ruining my work due losing it as the computer stops. I have to hard reboot every time

I have Windows XP, HP Pavillion a1130n desktop with AMD 64 Athalon..

    Thanks...I neglected to check HP's website and sure enough this was happening to other users with this computer model #. Their fix was to download a new BIOS. I did that and we'll see if it happens....other users claim it fixed this issue for them.

    I have the identical white screen problem where the computer just dies, leaving the screen all white. I see that patch on HP, but my problem is my ignorance because the patch info tells me to check my bios version. However, when I go to the main screen of bios, it doesn't show any bios version number that I can see. It does appear that the bios is Phoenix technologies, but the patch that HP is giving is for MS7093/MS-7184 and I don't know if that is one and the same???

Why did my computer monitor stop showing an image?


Disconnect it from computer and power. wait 15 minutes and plug only the power back in, press the power on button. The monitor may display a message that there is no signal or something like that. If that happens the problem is either the cable or the computer. If you get no message then look for the menu button and press it to see if any thing appears. If not find the manual on line and read it. Many times monitors get over-driven by computers to the point that they can't display OR they self destruct.


OR

Another way is to just unplug everything computer and monitor for 15 minutes. Plug in monitor first then plug in computer and press the power button, the display should display the booting information if the cable is good and the monitor is good.

I have a Samsung LED computer monitor (model S23A300B). The monitor connects to my Macbook air. The Samsung monitor recently stopped showing the picture on my laptop. Instead, red, green, blue and white...


Try the plugging the setup into a different monitor to eliminate the lead however it sounds like the monitors died. With cost of screens even if you can get hold of one you'll be better off getting a new monmitor.

Monitor works ok then suddenly loose picture(black screen) turn monitor off then turn it back on works for approx 5 secs then goes back to black screen


there are many reason why a monitor suddenly turned off then back to work again , over use may over heat that cause the soled parts on the printed board of your CRT go loosen , try to re sold it, sometimes your PC might stop viewing so the monitor automatically shot off stby mode , loose connection due to basted parts , capacitors,power regulators,resistors , even the cables also might be.

Same problem - unplug both computer and monitor - hold power button for monitor for 15-30 seconds...then power it back on and then power on the computer. Seems from other sites there is a power issue with the monitor - this worked for me.
