    Restart the computer and keep pressing F8, you will get an advanced startup menu.
    Use the up and down keys to start in VGA mode.

I have a Proview MA-782KC 17" TFT Monitor and when I switch it on the green power light flashes but nothing is appearing on the screen. When it was working properly the green light remained aon all...

I`ve opened it up and there are several 470uF capacitors in the power circuitry which are obviously bulging, meaning they are in considerable distress. I am ordering some replacements and will fit them when they arrive and see if they get it working. I`ll let you know :)
By the way, I don`t recommend this for anyone not versed in this kind of repair. Messing about inside the power circuit of a monitor can KILL - even unplugged, unless you know what you are doing, so please take care.

The filter is a matter of personal preference. Your monitor itself doesnt need it.
If you get a lot of eyestrain while working on your computer, then it will help you.
