Question about KDS Radius Computers & Internet

Not true colors and now complete blue screen

Heres the deal. I have a windows 7 laptop with a broken screen so I used a monitor so I can still work with my laptop because we poor people are cheap :P I used the monitor for 3 months and no problem. Monitor works like a charm and then one day it all of a sudden gets weird colors which I think are "not true colors." I try not to worry about it because I can try to fix it to make it workable. Next day I turn it on I log in and 3 secs its the same as yesterday and then a light blue screen. NOT THE BLUE SCREEN WITH BAD STUFF. Just a light blue screen after a few seconds of seeing my desktop. I don't know if its the monitor, cable, or laptop itself. Please help :(

    I just checked and it's the monitor thats the problem because I hooked it up to my other laptop and it showed the same "not true colors" colors but not the bright blue screen. That might narrow it down

SOURCE: Gateway Monitor keeps going black

Alicia, Your monitor digital board is OK. The problem is with the power supply/ Inverter board(s) in back of the LCD/LPD Panel that you look at. You will need to question Gateway to see if they have a swapout program where you send them $30-$60 and your old monitor, and they will send you a refurbished (new cold cathode fluorescent tubes w/inverter board installed ) complete monitor. I'll tell you one thing though. Alicia, Don't feel bad abt this monitor of your's failing. You have joined the club with over 2000 others whose CCF tubes and INVERTER boards have with time now fail to light-up their LCD panels. Yes, there are some companys that do repair of these monitors. Try surfing under CCF tubes or FPD repair, or LCD repair. Yes Alicia, you are dealing with a technology similar to the new type of screw-in light bulbs, only the tubes are thinner and laid flat horizontally across the rear of your LCD panel with a reflecting mirror in back of them. Good luck girl in getting it repaired. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @aol .com North of Chicago 40 miles

SOURCE: Monitor Screen goes black every few seconds!

Check the capacitors on your monitors circuit board. If they have opened up at the top, they are fried. Buy new ones, make sure nothing has leaked from the old ones, and replace them.

SOURCE: Flashing power button on Samsung SyncMaster 920NW

Yes, More than likely the problem with the unit is blown capacitors on the power supply board, the flashing power light is a good indicator of this type of failure. Here is a link to a repair guide with pictures and videos showing how to open the unit and what to look for and replace to get it back going again.

Lenovo g550 laptop with an external monitor would only display of broken original screen after crash dump


Firstly you need to get your external monitor working. Have you tried pressing FN+F3 while turned on, (may take several presses).

If you can get the external monitor working then you'll need to run windows in safe mode and try removing any new drivers you installed. or try a 'Last Known good' on start up this depends on the OS version.

Shaking screen blue screen


Is this the (BSOD) Blue Screen Of Death that gives you an error message and prevents you from booting up successfully? If so, run the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
If you are talking about the color of your screen is blue then maybe your screen is going bad. Try an external monitor and see what it does. Borrow a monitor from a friend, relative, neighbor or co-worker and hook it up to the laptop. If the external monitor does the same thing then your Video Card is going bad. If the external monitor displays ok without any problems, then your original monitor is bad.

I have an Flatron LG W2343T monitor and I am running Windows 7. After over a year of trouble free usage, the screen colors have shifted to a blue-ish green. How can I reset the colors to the factory...


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If the color changes from a blue-ish green you can set it up using the Color Preset and change it to your desired settings. I've Provided the link for the manual of your LG W2343T Monitor so that you will have a guide on how to do it. Just click on Manuals and Documents then download the Owner's Manual. Color Preset is on page A14. If changing the settings won't fix the problem try to use another cable and see if it will works.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a Gateway laptop whose screen just broken and is cracked. However, I also do have an external Gateway monitor, model NO: FPD1730. I hooked up the external monitor to the laptop and it only works in...


Excuse me if I'm talking below you level of expertise...

With an external monitor on a laptop you usually have to activate the plug where you've connected the external monitor cable . This requires pressing 2 keys in combination, usually a FUNCTION button + a specific function key. Yeah, they're named almost the same thing, but I'll try to keep it straight.

On your keyboard's function keys (above the numeric keys typically) should be small pictures besides the standard F1, F2, etc. which are usually in white. You're looking for the picture that resembles a monitor. On my Thinkpad the small pictures are colored blue, and the monitor is on the F7 key. It so happens that my FUNCTION button (different than the function keys we were just talking about) which is located in the lower left of my keyboard is also blue. Yours might be in a different position, but I'm giving you an idea when to look.

When you find the Function Button, press and hold this key and the correct Function key (F1, F2, whatever). You might need to press this 1 or 2 times to get the correct monitor setting. I'm not exactly sure of the order but you'll activate the external monitor, then another combination press will activate both displays, then a 3rd will do another setting, then back to the beginning. If you miss it the first time just slowly press the combination until you get what you're looking for. Be patient, and press once every 5 seconds or so, giving the computer enough time to change its settings.

Hope this helps!
