Re: MONITOR WILL NOT WORK WHEN RE CONNECTED
You didn't state if you had a slot Video card , but if you do check to see if it is down in the slot well, as you may have bumped it putting the hard driver in. Try taking it out and reinserting it, with the power off, of course.

-check the cables on the monitor and disconnect and reconnect it
-if issue still persist you can check the cable of the monitor for broken pins (vga cable the one with blue connector)
-if there are broken pins then the cable could be the problem
-if not you can try to connect the monitor to another computer or connect the computer to another monitor
-if you connect another monitor to the computer and it works fine then the first monitor you have is broken
-but if you connected the monitor to another computer and it works then it could be the video card of the computer.
have you try replacing the power cord of your LCD monitor? mybe its defective or not properly plug to an AC outlet. check also the source of your power if its working....it from AC outlet there is a voltage present try to replace your power cord connected to your monitor with a new one
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.
Check your VGA connector (from monitor to PC), namely the pins in the connector. It's pretty easy to bend a pin, so that it doesn't make the connection. If you happen to do this to the connection present pins, then the monitor won't know that it is connected and will just display the message you are seeing.
If the bios setup is running evrything is ok except the hard disk.
To find out if there is any problem with monitor just put off the monitor and disconnect it from the cpu. Then turn it back on. If the no signal message is coming, then monitor is ok.
Your hard disk is the main suspect
If the same blue screen comes then monitor need repairs.
You may also try with another monitor on your computer to see the results. If the sane happens it is the hard disk
Try checking inside the computer for loose wiring near where the power supply box plugs into the motherboard, make sure that you turn the computer off and remove it from the outlet before opening it. While the computer is open, check all of the leads going into the motherboard are pushed in gently but firmly. Remove the RAM clean it with a soft paintbrush and then return them to there slots ensuring that they are seated correctly. Do the same with the graphics card and sound card if you have them in PCI slots or AGP slot returning them correctly into thier slots.
Put everything back together and before powering back on make sure that the power leads going into your PC and into your monitor have not been damaged in any way. Reboot your computer and try again. If you still get a shock or your computer does not boot properly then you may need to change the power supply box.
Hi there, removing the cable monitor has a diferent models and brand. some cable just screwing it by your hand both end. and some are connected built in to the screen, if you have this kind of model, you may need some tools and replacement cable for this. simple remove the screw of the monitor at each corner at the back of the screen and see if there is other screw at the back or bottom. then you can pull up the cover the screen and pick up the cable which is connected usally at the small board behind the picture tube which is the CRT Board. then replace the cable with the new one. TY
You mention that a switch is broken? I am assuming that you mean the power switch for the monitor? If so, then you can probably get the manufacturer and model, look it up on the web and order a new knob or switch from manufacturer. If this is not an option, then you will probably have to take the monitor apart to see what part of your substitute button is not touching, b/c what a button does it activate a special area on a circuit board that connects or disconnects power to its specificed area (where the button is sitting)
Follow this procedure to troubleshoot the monitor.
NOTE: Since each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue, check the display function after completing each step.
1. Download and install the latest video drivers for the video card.
2. Disconnect the computer and monitor from any surge protector or power strip and plug it directly into a known working wall outlet.
NOTE: If the display returns after completing this step, the problem is isolated to the surge protector or power strip.
3. Ensure the monitor cables are connected correctly.
4. Perform a monitor self-test.
5. Adjust the monitor brightness and contrast levels.
NOTE: Refer to the monitor manual or user guide for specific instructions on how to adjust the monitor brightness and contrast levels. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
6. If possible, connect and use the monitor with a different computer.
NOTE: If the monitor functions properly, then the problem is isolated to the computer to which the monitor was originally connected.
7. Ensure that the keyboard and mouse are connected correctly.
8. Troubleshoot the computer display configurations in Safe Mode.
9. Remove any hardware that has been added to the computer. This includes any added memory, internal or external drives, and any type of adapter card (network, sound, video, USB, etc.) .
