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..

    fixed it myself....HP has a patch to change the bios.....check out HP servce/support for solutions.

    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???

How do you recover from the black screen of death?


You probably mean 'blue screen of death'. There are too many possibilities to list, but let's start with is it a blue screen with white lettering? If so there are several 'error stop codes' that "should" point you in the right direction. You can view these here. These can be anything as simple as a device driver problem to a bad motherboard.

If you are getting a completely black screen but can hear the computer running, I'd suspect a bad video cable, monitor, video card or video chipset (the latter is built into the motherboard and can usually be circumvented by adding a video card). Try a different cable or monitor if possible (always make sure your PC is turned completely off before removing any plug other than USB). If this doesn't work, you can buy a cheap 'PCI' video card for about $10-15.

If the computer just doesn't turn on I'd suspect (almost always) a bad power supply. You should be able to find a new one for under $25. Just make sure it has the all same connectors as the original.

I get a pop up with a RED CONTRAST screen every few minutes It sometimes goes away if I push the contrast button on my Dell monitor. but it will usually come right back. I have tried everything to stop...


You can try the monitor on another computer to verify it is the monitor and not the display card at fault.

I'm assuming this is an LCD monitor. If you are sure the monitor is the problem, then your monitor's display driver circuit is probably getting close to failing. When one of the three colors (red, green, blue) becomes intermittent, the screen takes on the hue of the working colors. In your case it sounds like the blue is starting to fail.

A repair technician may be able to replace the circuit.

The red light is the indicator for the HDD activity , since it stop it's clear that the corrupted files were essential ones, that should have been loaded during the Windows boot process.
Your only thing left to do is to reinstall. If you're lucky you can get away with a Repair install, try it first.

Dell flat screen goes white and colored block appears and floats


Check that your monitor is connected properly and tightly to the computer. If it is, then the monitor may be bad. Borrow a friend's monitor and try to see if it works, if someone else's monitor works, then replace your monitor.

Samsung SyncMaster 712n monitor will have small blue & white tiny checkers on the screen. will go away if i click the mouse. sometimes the entire screen has those tiny blue & white checkers.


Surely the monitor lets you change it's 'standby' settings so that it doesn't show that; or change your computer's power savings modes not to include standby?
