    Does the monitor come back on after rebooting on it's own or does it stay shut off?
    Also what monitor are you using?

Pc switching on but lines on screen only


If you can't see anything - even the text from BIOS when it boots, I would suspect that it is probably the monitor. If the PC USED to boot fine, then suddenly started behaving this way it is very possibly either the monitor or the signal to the monitor.

You didn't say if the PC is a desktop or a laptop. If it is a laptop, try to find an external monitor to connect to. Of course, in most cases laptops require that you switch them to a dual monitor mode, which will be difficult if you don't see anything on the main monitor.

Is the a Windows machine? What version of the OS are you running? Have you made any changes to the system?

Also: be sure that if you are using an external monitor, the cable is seated fully and tightened down.

Compaq Monitor WF 1907 immediately after the Desktop /Monitor (set at VGA) is turned-on gets stuck at the COMPAQ sign in the center and F10=SetUP, EXC=Boot Boot Menuplus F11=System Recovery all displayed...


Try using your windows cd to boot up the computer and if that does not work then you may need to reset the bios. Inside the case if it is desktop there is a way to reset the the bios. There is a jumper that needs to be switch then switched back that will reset the bios. If this does not work may need to get a new hard drive. The MBR ( Master Boot Record) may have been corrupted.

Hi, MY grandson was left alone with my PC when i returned the colour and contrast on the monitor was very dull also the menu language changed to japanese. I have tried to set it manually but nothing...


I think you know the first thing you did wrong!
Try booting into safe mode using the F8 key on startup and then do a system restore back to before your grandson visited. You could also choose "boot to last known good configuration"
Then password protect the computer and don't let him know what it is!

My compaq computersceen says input not supported


i think your cpu settings you changed to high resolution. That resolution is not supporting by your monitor. If you have another monitor connect to that monitor to your cpu and change lo some low resolution. If monitor is not there try to boot in vga mode for that mode you need to press "F8" button on booting. It show you some modes select vga mode and boot and change the resolution and restart your system

My computer will turn on but my monitor does not get a signal and I've tried this on two working monitors and two different power chords. The lights on the keyboards don't even work. Any solution?


I was just dealing with this last night. My pc would come on, but I kept getting a "No Signal" message on my monitor. I first plugged the machine into a known working monitor. It worked fine so that eliminated the video card issue. Then I plugged the monitor into a different computer...it too worked. So I knew that the monitor was good. I then switched the cord from the faulty monitor and still didn't get a signal. I proceeded investigating the issue. I found that if you boot the machine in safe mode, it actually caught a signal. So...I figured it must be something to do with the resolution. My solution: Boot the machine in safe mode, change the resolution in the control panel and reboot the machine. If it doesnt catch the signal booting in safe mode, I suspect it is a faulty video card. You are likely to find what you are looking for online at zipzoomfly.com or newegg.com

Sytem wont boot


This time your system is very ok... theres a possible reason why its automatically on without pressing the button and cannot see a device even hard disk...
Here is a tip:
1. Check the CMOS Battery maybe its weak, or try to change it a new one, and
2. Change also your power supply it might the current flow of electricity are not normal... i know its ridiculous but i experience just like yours...

Is this a Software/Config/Hardware Problem ?


hmmm..sounds like a sleep or screen saver conflict...try booting up on Safe mode(F8) on turn on, and then see how that works. Set your screen saver for Never, and see what happens.

You may be hitting a thermal issue with your video circuitry.
