HP Monitor blanking out on full screen mode

I have a brand new HP 19" monitor which I have connected to my Dell PC. I have a newish graphics card, Nvidia 6600. The new monitor works fine in normal mode, running desktop applications or using the Web. When you run a game as soon as full screen mode kicks in the screen goes blank. Connected to old monitor and it works fine. I have downloaded all latest drivers for monitor and graphics catd but to no avail. Have tried different screen resoloutions but this doesn't work either. HELP!

Re: HP Monitor blanking out on full screen mode

Hi, I read this somewhere (can't recall the site). Go to your desktop properties (right click on any clear area of your desktop); Settings tab; Advanced button; Troubleshoot Tab; Uncheck Enable Write combining; Reboot your PC. If this does not fix the problem, you can always revert back. Hope this be of some help. Good luck and kind regards.

Re: HP Monitor blanking out on full screen mode

It may be worth going to the game makers web site and see if there are any patches regarding your make of your graphics card. It may also be the fact that the game resolution does not match the screen resolution, try changing it in the game settings if it's possible for you to do so, as the monitor seems to be struggling with the change of resolution as you start up the game.

Blue light on with blank screen dell SE198WFP monitor

It depends on what type of connection you are using. If you are using a VGA (analog) cable then you need to select that mode on your monitor menu. If you are using a DVI (digital) cable then you need to choose that mode on you monitor menu.

No input signal recommended settings hp vs15 monitor 1024x768 60h

old monitor 1280 x 1024
power light on?
OSD work?
if it said on the screen no input sig, then that is 100% true
the PC is not sending output.

check the video cable connections both ends
then if bad, boot PC to safe mode. does that work.
then maybe you set the PC graphic resolution too high for the monitor. use safe mode to set new , legal resolution
1280 x 1024 is max, do not exceed, the horz, vert, reso to the left here. if you do the monitor , will display, out of range. errors.

im confused, you show HP monitor then Sam.
why ?
my guess is HP question posted in SAM section.
so here is my HP answer
1280 x 768 @ 75Hz

if your PC or other device exceeds any of those. this old monitor
will go blank.
HOR, vert and refresh rates max.

to solve this riddle, set the PC to
1280 x 768
then connect monitor and bingo.
but there is a chicken and egg deal here.
if the display car is over this, as most new systems are.
then use safe mode to set the resolution to 1280 x 768
and reboot to normal mode.
boot and it F8 , safemode.

My dell 2005fpw screen has gone blank and power button is flashing green. The monitor is connected to my laptop via a docking station.

A flashing green is usually a power supply failure on the main board of the LCD and a protective shut down circuit kicks in when the voltages are not correct at the check sum.
This also depending on the circuit configuration that the monitor is in standby mode. Your user manual can give you this information.
This also may be the video card itself or a loose cable.
Check the monitor cable to see if it is secured.
Also check you resolution settings on the PC. This procedure will require you to connect another monitor to the pc to see if it will bring a signal.
If a signal is visible then the video card is ok.
If not then you will have to check the video driver for the video graphic display card and or replace the card.

Hp f2105 monitor goes immediately to sleep mode

Sounds like your monitor is not processing the resolution signal from the graphics card. Reboot the computer in "safe mode with networking", from there you can play around with the resolution, start low resolution and work your way up to test the monitor.

My monitor went black, and the power switch just flashes.

is your CPU working properly? if that the case, your monitor is in need of a service.
reasons for why a monitor goes blank?
Reason 1: Wetness
The number one reason why computer monitors go blank is - wetness. Believe it or not, when your computer monitor is exposed to humid air, sometimes water can condense and accumulate in the monitor. This causes the monitor to malfunction and go blank. I've had this happen to my desktop PC at least three times before. What you need to do is to leave the monitor alone for some time and allow the water to evaporate. That usually solves the problem.

Reason 2: Faulty Graphics Card
The next reason why your computer monitor goes black is due to a faulty graphics card. The best way to detect this kind of problem is to connect up a new monitor to your PC, then check if you have a blank screen. If you continue to have a blank screen, then it's likely your video card is faulty.

Reason 3: Faulty RAM
This one is less obvious and less common, but it can happen. You might sometimes get bad RAM modules which prevent your PC from booting up even to the basic BIOS startup screen. To detect this kind of problem is more troublesome, you might need to remove those RAM modules and insert them into another computer.

Reason 4: Loose Connections
Another reason why your monitor goes blank is due to loose connections. The connection from the monitor to the mains is usually a culprit, as is the connection between the monitor and the video card. Check those connections before you declare your computer monitor as faulty.

Reason 5: A Short Circuit In The Motherboard
And the final reason why your computer monitor goes blank? It's possibly because of a short circuit in the motherboard. This is the most undesirable outcome of course, as you might have to replace your entire motherboard. However, it's possible that this can happen - so keep your fingers crossed and hope it doesn't happen to you.

have a nice day.

You'll need to troubleshoot a little. SOmething may be broken, but you'll need to find out what. 1: Try the monitor on another computer, see wether it will work on that one. If it doesn't, the monitor's broken and you're probably going to need a new one. 2: If the monitor does work, put it back, but now use another cable to connect it to the PC. If that fixes it, your cable was broken. 3: If not, you could try to switch the graphics card in the PC with another one. Do not attempt that, however, unless you know what you're doing. If you don't, get someone you know to do it for you, or take it to a computer shop. If the PC will boot with another graphics card, the old one is broken. 4: If not, it may be your motherboard that's broken. Repeat step 3 with it. These steps should fix your problem. If not, please post back here. Regards, Yannick.

You dont need to install a driver for the monitor. The power save mode message appears when the monitor is not able to get a signal from the computer. Make sure the the vga/blue cable is securely plugged to the back of the pc.

note: Inspect the back of your studio. You may have two blue ports where you can connect the monitor, if you do, connect the monitor to the one at the bottom half of the computer.

Unplug the cable from your PC, if the monitor shows a test image, the monitor is fine and the problem is with your graphic card. If you dont see nothing on-screen after unpluging the cable from the PC, then the monitor in damaged. Send it to repair.
