Try using the function key for your display options

You should see a key related to your function key, generally a different color then the rest, labeled (F, Fun, FN, etc...) then look for a CRT/LCD, or LCD, or a symbol of a rounded square, or something resembling a monitor or screen.

Hold Fn and press that button, give it a few seconds. It should switch.

You can also hold a flash light up to the screen and see if there's any image, if this is the case then parts need to be replaced.

Hope this helps.
Let us know
Good Luck

Monitor is slow coming on then when on website clicking out of second tab flashes black


1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or flashing, but nothing displays, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.

Nothing displays on the monitor when I turn on the computer


is there power to the monitor? is the monitor in standby(yellow light on monitor)? is the monitor on (green light on monitor)? how is the monitor connected to the computer, VGA (square fat cable, the end may be blue) or HDMI cable? When you turn on the computer is the power light on and HDD light flashing / showing activity? this would indicate that the computer is booting up. If you have power light and activity on the computer, I would unplug the data cable to the monitor. If the monitor is plugged in, i would press the power button to try and turn on the monitor / take it out of standby. If the monitor is ok you should see a message like "no signal" or "no input". This would tell you that the monitor is fine, but you may have a problem with the video card or video port on the motherboard. If you have no activity light on the on the computer, you may have a problem with the OS not booting up. You really didn't provide much detail on what has been done, but this is how I troubleshoot out in the field when working on something like this.

You can verify that it is the inverter going out by turning the monitor on in a dark room and shining a light directly into the screen. If you cannot see anything, then something has happened to the power circuit. Perhaps the solder on the power port has gone bad, and needs to be redone, or part of the circuit board fried. The only way to figure this out is to open it up and take a look-see. If you don't wish to try this, you can always take it to a shop and have them look at it. Be careful opening it, the inverter is high voltage. Don't have any power going to the monitor if you do this.

My hp monitor is totally black it was working last night. i tried to unplug and replug it in and it came on for a few seconds then went black again


A lot of time people have the impression that the monitor is not working when in fact the computer is not booting its lighting up but nothing else so its stays on a black screen.


One way to know is by opening your speakers or plugging head phones, if you hear windows open or any windows sound the problem is the screen.

You can also unplug the screen from the pc and turn the screen on most of the time the screen while show a disconnected warning on the screen if that comes up the computer is defective.

Monitor screen begins as computer is booting up and then screen goes black. Message says there is no signal.


If the power light dims or changes color after the no signal message comes up, that means the monitor went to sleep.
While the monitor is plugged in and on and the computer is also on, Try unplugging the VGA cable from the monitor. wait 30 seconds and then plug it back in o see if the power button light comes back to normal color and the screen flashes on.
If not, then the monitor is not getting a signal from the computer.
If using a desktop computer,Try a different cord or try the monitor on another computer.
If using a laptop, you need to activate the laptop to use an external monitor. That can be done through the display settings, OR, most laptops have a shortcut key feature which usually involves pushing the Fn key and one of the F keys at the same time. The F key may say CRT/lcd or have a picture of a monitor and a screen.
If the power light does light back up and still no picture, There may be an internal issue on the monitor

Computer monitor flashes on then turns off


Try the monitor with another computer. If it works, the video circuitry (whether it is on-board or a separate adapter) in the Gateway is the problem and needs to be replaced. Otherwise, the problem is with the monitor itself. From your description it is probably the Gateway's video that is the problem since the power light on the monitor remains green indicating that it is seeng a signal, but not something it can properly interpret, i.e., one or more of the control signals are shot.

Acer Aspire 5102WLMi,Mouse&Keyboard&USB is gone :( Hi, My Laptop had a problems with booting (didn't recognize the hard drive) but after many restarts it was booting pretty well; However sometimes when I am working on Windows XP the hard drive was acting like suddenly disconnected, it was resulting disk write errors or blue screen; It was not so bad,but sometimes it was happening. Later, after a Blue Screen, it booted but the keyboard and the trackpad was not working; The USB ports also weren't working since I've connected external USB keyboard and mouse but they did not respond either. After I noticed that the keyboard don't work at all since I can't enther the BIOS configuration; It continued to boot SOMETIMES but the keyboard worked only for few seconds that I've been able to enter the BIOS(also only SOMETIMES). Since my warranty is over, I gave it to a repair shop and they told me that the ATI chipset is gone and they don't have any to replace it; I find it on eBay and I hope it will arrive tomorrow. However I noticed another strange thing: if I hit the laptops case in certain place(right to the trackpad) the laptop power off;It also power off if it is rised up quickly enough. Because of my curiosity I disassembled the laptop to see if there is anything that could cause a such problem I noticed that the South Bridge chipset is heating enough to burn my hand in only 2-3 seconds and don't have anything to cool it; Could this be a symptome of a problem with the south bridge? If you have any ideas or suggestions on the problem please write;
