Tower is beeping and monitor on/off switch is blinking

I turned on my PC .. it loaded up fine ... when I went to open AOL it froze so I had to turn it off. when I restarted it, it came up to the password screen. After I entered the password I had to leave the room and when I came back the screen was black but it had a small flashing symbol on the screen that kept rolling around like in a screen saver. I hit the enter key and nothing happened but then I noticed the tower was beeping and the monitor on/off switch keeps flashing. I checked all the cables and everything seems to be in order. I called Dell but they won't talk to me unless I pay them some big bucks ... any idea what this could be? Thank you ... I have added an Acer monitor to my Dell laptop.  When I turn on the laptop, the laptop screen comes on immediately any my Acer monitor used to do the same. 

At first, the monitor would take five minutes to come on after my laptop, not it is taking almost an hour.

The on off switch lights blinks all the time, even when the monitor is on.

I have not solved the problem of the blinking on off switch, but I have solved the problem of the monitor attached to my laptop waiting so long to start up. I never shut down the computer and I never hibernate it either. I leave it on 24 hours a day.

Emachines el1200 will not start up. When power button is turned on...it will blink shortly after ( no beeps ). It will not turn on monitor


Hello,
As mentioned that when you turn on the system the lights on the system turns on and the monitor goes off, unplug the VGA cable from the system tower and turn on the monitor and check if you get signals on the screen if it shows you some color bar or a massage, that means your monitor is good. IF not then there is problem with the monitor . get it repaired or replace it. If that is not the case you would need to unplug all the external devices connected to the tower and try, IF not then you need to open the tower and check for the green light on the motherboard if it comes on or you can try reseting the memory card or if you have an video card, then you will have to remove the card and try the build in one .

Thank you for using FixYa

I would try shutting down the computer in the normal way, and turning off the monitor.
Boot up and turn the monitor back on.
If it still doesn't work, then I would check the cables and power plugs and wall plugs.
Check the mouse and keyboard cable and any other cables plugged into the computer.
The next step requires a seperate monitor or laptop.
Try unplugging the monitor and pluging in another monitor. Most laptops have a common
VGA adaptor jack or even an Svideo jack.
If the other monitor does not work, Then take to a qualified technician for repair.
It could be your power supply in the computer or video controller.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

Hp pavilion a705w Light flashed in front and back on and off


Try a different monitor with your PC. If it does the same thing then you know the problem is with your PC. Also connect your PC to a different monitor. If it works OK then your monitor is bad. Does it beep at startup? Describe beep codes and someone on this website will decipher them for you. This might help to diagnose the problem.

Hi

Disconnect the monitor from the tower and then turn on the monitor.
If u get a msg like no input signal or check video cable then the monitor is fine. If this is the case, it could be a problem with the tower or the cable.
