    May I ask, the freezing, usually before windows boots up or after

  • jkpf May 11, 2010

    There is a high possibility that you computer's CPU fan isn't working. Can you open the chassis and turn on the computer to see if the CPU fan still spins?

    Try unplugging your keyboard and starting with it unplugged and let us know what happens.

Our samsung lcd monitor went black! two weeks ago, it does not display anything. so we, turned the system off then we turned it on. after doing so, the monitor worked properly. unfortunately this week,...

this could be a loose lead or a faulty connection

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electical extensions

even something as small as an electrical fan and its lead can cause this problem or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs all electrical power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free

restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard

hope this helps you

When i start computer there is no display on the monitor. when i restart computer many times(4 to 5 times) then display is shown . i also changed my RAM

How about try changing your display setting, go to control panel. Double click display icon, click settings, click advance and monitor. From your monitor settings change screen refresh rate to 60 Hertz and click ok and ok. Try to restart your computer and observe.

Restart your computer in Safe Mode
(or reconnect your previous monitor).

Set the screen-resolution to 800 by 600 at 60 Hertz.
Shutdown, connect the new monitor, and restart, and your Soyo monitor will be able to display something, using these "NOT-out-of-range" values.

Try changing the resolution to 1024-by-768, or 1280-by-1024,
and "test' these values, to see what values are "in-range" for your new monitor.

I have LG 700S 17" Monitor

Try tapping f8 when you start your computer and when at the MS startup menu choose
  • Enable low resolution video (640x480)
  • and if windows starts update your video driver and that should fix the problem, when you restart more than once the options go back to default (not low res video,whatever video driver is installed)

    Restart computer and monitor says not optimal display

    If you are indicating you have like 5 or 10 frames stacked across the screen causing the can't see problem, here's the "what-to-do". Reboot the computer and use "F-8" to get it started in safe mode. Make the necessary corrections the the display settings. Save and reboot. That should restore so that you can see to optimize the settings once back in normal mode.
    Let me know if I missed it.

    Unable to install HPw2007 Monitor

    I would like to inform you that if you are using HP PC, then there is no need to install the drivers from the disc provided with the monitor. HP PC already has in-built monitor drivers. The default account in Vista from first boot is an admin account, monitor should plug and play and the correct INF file will install for the monitor.
    Still, if you want to install the drivers from the disc provided with the monitor, then please follow the steps given below:
    == Disable UAC settings ==
    You might get access denied error message while installing the monitor drivers.
    The error message might come up if the UAC (User Access Control) in Microsoft Windows Vista is kept enabled, hence not allowing the installation.
    To resolve the issue please follow the steps given below :
    1. Click Start
    2. Click Control Panel
    3. Click User Accounts and Family Safety
    4. Click User Accounts
    5. Click Turn User Account Control On or Off
    6. Uncheck the checkbox
    7. Click OK
    You will need to restart your computer for the change to take effect.
    Now try to install the monitor drivers and check for the results.
    If still the issue persists then :
    Step 2 :
    1. Click Start -> All Programs -> HP My Display -> Display Diagnostic Utility.
    2. In the Display Diagnostic Utility click on “Clear Registry”. A Clean Reg Window would open, Click on “Yes”
    3. On restart you will have “Other Devices” with “Generic Monitor” List under that same.
    4. Continue the process of “Clean Registry” until you get “Other Devices” with “Generic Monitor” listed under that same.
    5. Now insert the disc and install the drivers.
    or Download the HP w2007 LCD Monitor Driver from the weblink provided below :
    Now install the drivers.
    6. Restart the computer.
    7. This time it says "new hardware found with recommendation to install".
    8. Cancel it.
    9. Immediately, it gives option "Do not show the message again" and also says computer won't function if we select it.
    Proceed by check marking it. You may be prompted to check mark it twice if prompted.
    10. Restart the computer to check for the error message.
    It will no more ask to install the monitor drivers.
    Take your time, please try the steps and get back to us with the results.

    Funny monitor problem

    If I were you I would invest in a new video display card. Sounds your card is intermittant, because the chances of a tube type display and a TFT display having the same problem is slim to none. LOL Good Luck Please dont forget to rate this thread
