HP D9811 monitor freezes and then starts blinking on and off

I can be searching the net and then wham... the screen image gets all distorted and then the monitor starts to blink on and off, as if its trying to correct itself. I have to just power off the computer from the power button since the mouse freezes as well and the crt+alt+del doesnt work either. Once I restart it works fine until at any random time it happens again. Could my monitor be going bad? It is a kinda old(2001) as is my computer. the computer came with Win 98 but has been upgraded to XP. Thanks in advance.

Since you mentioned that your mouse freezes and your keyboard freezes, I'm pretty sure your problem does not exist in your monitor at all, but in the computer itself.

The first place I would look for a fix is in your video card. Since you started with a 98 machine and upgraded to XP, I'm not sure how that was done. It has been problematic in my experience to run a FAT32 file system under a XP operating system, and in those days it was a common upgrade.

The problem with it was, and is, that the drivers are built for an NTFS file system and FAT32 is on your pc.(maybe)

The first change I would make (well, as a tech, it would be to erase the hard disk and reinstall the os, but let's just talk about the fix here) is to look at the drivers for the video card, and check with the manufacturer of the video card for the most current one.

If that is already the most current, check the file structure to see if it is FAT32; and if so, consider backing up your data and reinstalling the OS under NTFS files structure.

good luck

The monitor is faulty, this is confirmed when you connected to several laptops.
The fault could be a faulty inverter board which supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp for the back lighting. Have a close look at the monitor at a sharp angle, if you see a faint Windows image then it is definitely a back light fault.
For parts, check out these WEB sites.

Screen stretched out horizontally and distorting picture. None of the settings buttons appear to solve this. I can shift the image vertically or horizontally; but not squeeze it horizontally.


There are adjustments in the size of the items on a screen under the screen properties, settings. If you right click on the desktop screen and then properties you can get there. There is at least one size which causes a distortion of images being displayed. This may be your problem.

Monitor freezes up with multicolor wording or distorted images


Sounds to me like a few possible things...

1) Bad connection to the monitor, check the cable connection, if you see or suspect any damage, buy a new monitor or test with a friend's monitor.

2) Video card could be bad, if it has a video card, you could simply buy a new card to see if it will fix the problem. If the video port is attached to the motherboard (meaning onboard video), the motherboard could be damaged.

3) The motherboard could be bad. Sometimes fried motherboards will garble the screen like this on bootup.

Screen image appears fuzzy, jumpy and broken up into lines.


gardenman13, I would certainly complain to HP about their w22 monitor!! Find out if the units warranty is still valid and can be swapped-out for a REFURBISHED unit. Your w22 shouldn't be hazy, distorted, or flicker for any reason. My best guess is that it (w22) has problems inside with it's "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" and electronic ballast circuit called an INVERTER circuit, which could also cause the main "switch-mode-power-supply" to go a little NUTS upon STARTUP!! FYI you are dealing with a technology similar to the curlie-Q CFL screw-in light bulbs. Their ballast's are called CONVERTERs (ac to ac) and are cheaper. Your lanps are thinner and straight, hung on rear of your LCD panel. I hope this was informative. Please rate this on fixya. 12fixlouie
