Re: Blank/Black Screen Asus PC 4G
When you first turn on the computer, start tapping the F8 key to bring up the safe mode screen. You have a very short window in which to press the F8 key before XP loads, so it is possible to miss it. If this happens, just restart it and try it again. Once you are on the safe mode screen, select the enable VGA mode. This will boot your computer to a default 640 x 480 resolution so you can change it back to normal.

Try to restart the computer in safe mode. At start up press F8 key like your are trying to get the computers attention. You should get a start up menu. Chose Safe Mode. Once in safe mode reset the screen resolution to is lowest basic setting and reboot. See if this will help. Do you have a good antivirus program. While in safe mode run a scan also. Hope this helps Fixya up.
The resolution your pc is set for is not compatible with the monitor.
To fix this, you need to start the pc in VGA mode. (640 x 480 lines) Start the computer and begin tapping the F8 key about once a second till you see a text screen with options displayed.
If you recieve a stuck key error, clear it (read the message) and continue to tap F8.
Choose the option to boot in VGA mode. When pc starts everything will look very big, like you're zoomed in.
Now you can change the screen resolution. Right click on background and choose properties, or display options, (depends on your operating system) find the option for resolution and change it to 800 x 600. (The screen will not change then and ther) Apply or OK the screen then restart the pc normally. Now you should be able to see more of the screen.
Go back to the resolution settings, and adjust it to your likeing and the limit of the monitor. Now it will apply immediatly, - click the save option that pops up with the change to lock in. If screen becomes unreadable, just wait 15 seconds and it will change back.
Boot the computer in SAFE MODE by Restarting the computer, and the moment its on keep tapping the F8 key untill you see a screen saying "Windows Advanced option...".
1. Select Safe Mode using the keyboard arrow key and hit enter. 2. This will load all basic drivers to start safe mode operation. 3. Go to Display Properties (WindowsXP) or Display Settings (Windows Vista) by right click on empty blank space on Desktop, then select Properties(Windows XP) or Personalize(Windows Vista). 4. Then change the resolution by sliding the Low to High slider bar. Do not press "OK" or "Apply" at this time. 5. Instead, click on Advanced Settings, and then click OK. Windows in Safe Mode will change the screen resolution according to new settings, and prompt a "Monitor Settings" dialog box prompting that desktop has been reconfigured, with countdown timer. Click on Yes to keep the new settings. 6. Alternatively, simply click on Advanced, go to Adapter tab, then click on List All Mode. Select a mode with screen resolution size and color mode that you prefer, and click on OK. Windows will apply the new resolution size and color quality on Safe Mode too.
Hi, Restart your computer press F8 key from the displayed option select safe mode. After entering in to the safe mode go to device manager in my computer property, Hardware option. In that remove the display driver and restart your PC.
sounds like you have to set the monitor resolution using your computer. right click desktop...
graphics options. or Properties. look for Resolution slider. Move it around. press apply. see what happens. if it now fits but is fuzzy. change the refresh rate eg. 60 Hz or 75 Hz.
On the monitor itself there is typically a button that allows you to move the image to fit the screen, quite often these settings are inadvertently played with by children ect. look for buttons/ menu's on your monitor itself. play with the settings .
In short, no. The resolution on those LCD panels is extremely small and was originally designed for the small proprietary OS that came on them. Eventually Asus started putting XP on some of them, which was designed for 800x600 at the very least. As a result a lot of standard Windows dialog boxes are taller than the screen and make access to the buttons on the bottom difficult. One solution would be to use an OS that's designed for LCD screens with low resolution, like Ubuntu Netbook Remix. The only other solution is to upgrade to a netbook with a higher resolution screen, like most of the 8" netbooks.
Hi there you ca adjust the screen resolution by right click on the desktop mean u close all pages then right click, select properties its at the bottom, a box will appear click click settings and sat bottom left you will see the settings for the screen resolution set to 1024 by 768 and you will be fine

You should be able to reset you screen resolution by clicking on Display inside the control panel. Go to the Settings tab once the display properties window opens and look for the screen resolution area that allows you to adjust the resolution. If its set at the low end, move it over to the high end and press Apply to test out the new sizing
