My Zoostorm Desktop won't boot and show up on the monitor. Help?

I have a desktop computer and it has Windows XP. It was all ok until one day I switched it on and it didn't boot. I've had it since about 2007 so it is quite old. The lights come on, the cd drive opens, everything except the OS works. The monitor says 'No signal'. I can't remember which Zoostorm model it was but its about 5 years old. Can anyone help? :/

No signal just means the video card isn't putting out any signal. If you don't even see BIOS then replace the power supply first. Still doesn't work then it's probably the motherboard.

SOURCE: Unmountable boot volume or do I need another hard drive ?

Start machine press F8 repeatedly
If it lets you into Safe Mode then go to Programs, Accesories, System Tools, System Restore and try to roll the machine back a week or so
If that does not work you need to find a buddy with a copy of the software and reinstall providing your machine has the Windows sticker on the back or sides giving you the key code

SOURCE: Monitor goes blank after seeing XP during boot up.

did u replace the video card with the same kind of model ? i guess yes ... when system starts hit the f8 key and than go in to safe mode ... mouse wont work so use arrow on the keyboard .. and in the safe mode just log in to admin account if available or login to ur account and see if that still happens .. and if it doesnt ... remove the drivers for the graphic card from add and remove programs and restart the system and go in the normal mode and than install the drivers again ... and if the display disappears in the safe mode or u have install a different graphic card than ... reseat the memory cards and that should resolve the issue .... if that doesnt work out when the system starts hit f1 and stay on the BIOS screen for 30 mins if the system doesnt loose display than u need to reinstall OS ... that will surely work out ... the resolutions given above if u follow them correctly u will have a working system in no time

Hi.
Either the drive is faulty (yes, they fail right from new more often than you would think), or the master slave jumper may not be set correctly on the back of the drive. If the PC came fully assembled, I would take it back and get the tech to check it. If you setup the hardware side of it yourself, check that the jumper is correct for the master/ slave situtation of the drive and make sure the cables are pressed in firmly.

If your computer gets to that stage, then I would guess you have an OS ( Operating System ) problem. Try booting from your XP installation CD. If that works then you may have to re-install Windows.

You will need to update the drivers on the computer for the docking station. It will be the windows seven drivers or lack of them that is causing a failure to remap the usb ports that the wireless dongle is plugged into.

SYSTEM RESTORE Windows XP

Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'


A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next


Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '


Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

I want my monitor to work once again because it says cannot display video mode? i dont understand help me?


You didn't say which OS you're running. However, it looks like you need to restart your computer in safe mode. This URL explains how to get in safe mode. When the computer boots the video it will look a bit grainy and you won't be able to see the entire desktop without using the scroll bars.

Both XP and Vista don't allow you to perform such an operation through the regular procedure and, as a result, you will only be able to get a screen resolution of 800×600 with the consequence that some icons and programs won't be displayed correctly. This is because Safe Mode just loads only basic services and drivers which are strictly necessary for Windows to run.

Fortunately, by employing the following techniques, you can get around this restriction permitting you to get whatever screen resolution you want.

Windows XP:
  1. Right click on your desktop.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Click the Settings tab.
  4. Under Screen Resolution, drag the pointer to the right (where higher resolutions are located).
  5. Click Advanced.
  6. On the new window click OK, without modifying anything.
  7. Done, you should have successfully changed the resolution settings.
Windows Vista:
  1. Right click on your desktop.
  2. Click Personalize.
  3. Click Display Settings.
  4. Under Resolution, drag the pointer to the right (where higher resolutions are located).
  5. Click Advanced Settings.
  6. On the new window click OK, without modifying anything.
  7. Done, you should have successfully change the resolution settings.

Hi, My monitor has dull display. After starting my computer, I could see the desktop but after few seconds it disappears. I am sure whats happening. Please suggest me what to do.


My answer will help Windows XP and Windows 7 users.
When the computer starts, start pressing F8 button. After several seconds you will see the following menu.
Safe Mode Safe Mode with Networking Safe Mode with Command Prompt ---------------------------- ---------------------------- ----------------------------

If you have Win XP, there will be a menu item as 'Enable VGA Mode'. In Win 7 you will see 'Enable low-resolution video (640 x 480)'
Select this option and press enter. (XP users will have to enter again).
After the computer is ready, goto display properties and save the resolution.


- In XP right-click on desktop, select 'Properties', Click the 'Settings' tab (last tab on top), and click 'OK' button.

- In Win 7, Right-click on screen and select 'Screen Resolution'. Click 'OK' button.


(Ignore any warnings)



Restart the computer.



Set the screen resolution again to a reasonable setting.

- Be careful! If you set it too high (if the monitor does not support the resolution you select), again the screen might disappear! (Sometimes this happen automatically after installing a game)

My Monitor shows out of range problem when we restart our computer and i m using windows XP on that computer


Hello,

Okay there are a couple of possible ways to fix this. Of course I am assuming I know what is wrong.

If this problem just started happening out of the blue for no apparent reason then try this:

Restart you machine. While it is booting (but before is shows the windows logo) start tapping the F8 key. If you do this right you should get a menu with a number of Windows boot up choices.

One of the choices should be 'Boot in Safe Mode'. Use the Up and Down arrows to highlight this choice and hit Enter.

When Windows gets ready to boot the Desktop in Safe Mode it will first ask you if you want to run System Restore. Do so.

Pick a restore point before the trouble started. This MAY fix your problem.

If this fails to fix the problem there are so other things you can try.

Follow the same instructions as above but when the boot options menu comes up after hitting F8 instead of selecting 'Boot in Safe Mode' instead select 'Enable VGA Mode'.

If this lets you get to the Desktop of with you monitor working then right click on an empty spot on your Desktop and select 'Properties'.

Then click on the 'Settings' tab (on the far right). Then set the resolution (slider in the lower left corner) to what ever you usually use.

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.
