Hi, Sounds like video card problem. Try removing, cleaning the gold contacts and re-installing to the slot. If your PC uses an on-board video that shares with the memory, then you have to remove your memory and clean the gold contacts then re-insert back and try again. If cleaning, re-inserting/re-seating does not solve the problem, then perhaps replacement is required. Hope this be of some help/idea. post back how things turned up or should you need further information. good luck and kind regards.

Monitor on karne ke bad kaise patachalega ki monitor ok hai or not ok

Disconnect the Monitor from the CPU.
If it goes thru a self test that means if you see the manufacturer logo or name moving on the screen or Color bars Red Blue and Green moving on the screen that means The monitor is working fine. If you don't see anything on the screen that means monitor is faulty.

Thanks and regards

Small rectangle in the middle of the screen with the letter i in the left corner, the buttons are lockeder la hello 17

If the picture disappears from the screen and the
1 (power) indicator is green
Turn off the 1 (power) switch and disconnect the
video signal cables from the monitor.
Turn the monitor on by pressing the 1 (power)
If all four color bars appear (white, red, green, blue), the monitor
is working properly. Reconnect the video signal cables and check
the condition of your computer(s).
If the color bars do not appear, there is a potential monitor failure.
Inform your authorized Sony dealer of the monitor's condition.
Be sure to note the model name and serial number of your
monitor. Also note the make and model of your computer and
graphics board.

Error before welcome screen, double picture in welcome screen, hang after welcomescreen

If your monitor is showing weird colors before the Windows XP welcome screen then it might be that your monitor is bad. Try hooking up a different monitor and see if the colors look fine as the computer is booting up, if it does then you know the original monitor is bad, if the colors still look weird then you know your video card is going bad.

As far as the lockups are concerned, with the computer turned off, take out the memory. With a can of air, blow some on the contacts of the memory and into the memory slots on the motherboard. You want to do this to make sure that there is no dust or dirt cause that can cause lockups to happen.

If you need more help, just let me know.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen

If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.

Shows nothing but cross horizontal bands

The monitor may not be able to handle the settings of the video adapter. If you boot into safe mode (tap F8 key as the computer starts), does the display appear correctly? If so, then you just need to turn down the settings (resolution, color quality, frequency) to the lowest possible settings. If the display still appears wrong, then it may be something wrong with the monitor. You can try connecting the monitor to another CPU and see if you can replicate the results.
