Sounds it may have a short in it or your cable. Try replacing the cable, if that doesn't work, try to get another monitor and see if it does the same thing.

Red light and green light on AMD 64 Athlon x2 and locks out monitor


Processors do not have monitors. Or lights for that matter. What monitor do you have and is the button you hit on the monitor or your computer tower? Are the lights on the monitor or the tower?These are important questions, don't you think?

We have a samsung syncmaster p2050 monitor and a dell tower but the screen does not stay on to enable you do anything pls help to identify if its a monitor problem or a dell problem?


At a guess it's probably a monitor problem but the only way to be sure is to test the theory.

You need to beg, borrow or steel another monitor and connect it to your tower, if it works Ok, your monitor has the problem, if not, its your graphics card.

Or, if you can't borrow a monitor, ask if you can connect yours to a friends tower or even a laptop with a vga port on the back (blue 23 pins).

With the laptop, you should be able to switch between the laptop monitor and the ancillary monitor by pressing the "Fn" and another key (look amongst your "F" keys and your Number keys, there should be a picture of a screen). Don't forget to switch back by pressing the same keys again.

I have a dell E228WFP 22 in monitor.The power button does not work therefore I have to leave monitor on at all times.Cam i get this repaired?


These monitors are switched by a signal from your computer. When this signal is present, the monitor turns on, when you shut your computer down, the monitor turns off. In the meantime it remains in "stand by" mode. The main moitor switch should turn if off alltogether. If it doesn't, the swich can be replaced, but cecause these are "momentary" switches it's not an easy thing to do.It won't matter a lot if you don't replace it.

Monitor rejects computer


I'm just guessing, but it could be that the resolution you are using on your MS-DOS monitor is not compliant with the new monitor you are trying to use. Check the supported resolutions of the monitor that you would like to use, and then make sure you set that resolution before switching monitors.

Monitor shows ''NO SIGNAL''


This is normal. The monitor is telling you it is not getting a signal from the computer, which is true because you've turned off the computer. The monitor power is still on, however. The monitor power is not controlled by the computer power switch. Just turn it off with its power switch after you shut off the computer.

Black Screen


Look in the back of the Gateway where you currently have the video cable connected. If there are two connectors, (Side by Side) there than disconnect & re-connect to the other. Your display should come up. Don't be fooled. Most Pc's that have no display on their monitor is not a monitor problem but a computer problem.
