When I boot up my computer & turn monitor on the indicator light on the monitor turns from inital green colour to amber and I only get an on screen message of "power saving mode". There is no image of the computer booting up or XP starting, just black screen. It was working fine one minute and then after shuting down and then re-booting not long after I encountered the problem.

Re: No image on screen when boot up computer

Sometimes an old driver for this monitor will mistakenly believe it can display a higher resolution - and so it goes out of range when things autorun.

Step one - if you can, connect to another monitor, or your tv, with both old and new hardware installed and simply download and install the new driver.

If that doesn't work, boot into safe mode (it naturally sets a lower resolution).

And when all else fails.... Best trick I've found is to clear your CMOS (reset your BIOS) and, oddly, plug in a different keyboard to a different port and hold delete when you boot. If you need to repeat, change keyboards again. (make sure you hold the delete key down before you even plug the computer back in and it should work fine.) Also, for those unfamiliar with resetting their BIOS, write down your settings first, or ask a friend.

G'luck! Took me some research but I eventually made mine behave. :)

Hello, I own a Dell LCD Monitor, when I boot up the computer the monitor stays black. I see the desktop image for half a second, but very faintly. The power light is solid green and remains so. I have...

The fault could be a faulty inverter board that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or the CCFL lamp is faulty. The CCFL lamp is a mini fluro lamp that provides the back lighting for the screen.

Screen does not turn on but green light is on.

Green light indicates the monitor is getting power. Nothing coming up on the screen indicates, No Signal.

No signal from the computer. This means the computer itself isn't working.

A bad power supply in the computer can cause this. A bad power supply is the leading cause of desktop computer failure. It is replaceable, and can be done by the owner relatively easy.

You may have a computer tower that the Power light comes on, you hear fan/s spinning, (Including the Power Supply fan), and it sounds like the harddrive is running.

ALL the lights in your computer use less than 1 Watt.
EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.
A harddrive sitting there spinning in an endless loop, consumes about 2 to 3 Watts.

A Processor uses 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.

A weak Power Supply will have enough power for lights, fans, and that harddrive sitting there spinning.
It won't have enough power to turn on the Processor.

[No processor operating, then the harddrive sits there spinning in an endless loop, because there is no processor to find the boot sector]

For a test, connect your monitor to a know good computer. See if it works.
Now connect that other monitor to your computer.
