Why screen not coming on

Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

HP Compaq dx2000 Microtower PC not starting up properly, the orange light keeps flashing on the front and nothing on the monitor. Tried unplugging everything, depressing button for 5 seconds...nothing...

Are you sure it's not red you're seeing instead of orange? Disconnect power. Re-seat the RAM circuit boards inside the computer. Check for possible loose parts inside. Check all the fans and remove accumulated dust. Check the CPU - if possible remove the heat sink and inspect the silicone compound for dryness - reapply new compound if it's dry. The power supply may be bad as well - check that.

My computer want power up the green led light is on

if the green light is on then the computer is powered up, i suspect u have a defective monitor, not that uncommon, the olny way to check it is have a computer repair shop hook it up to another working system and see if the monitor turns on, if it is the monitor just replace it, monitors are very cheap right now, just bought a 19" for $89.00, mine did the same thing, green light nothing on screen.

When i turn my computer on the big button which is usually green doesnt work. there is a smaller light which is also usually green just below the big one which starts green as i turn it on and then it goes...

Make sure your cables are all firmly connected. Also check the power strip or surge protector. If all is connected well and the pc will still not turn on it looks like the problem is the power supply unit, which can be replaced for around $20. I hope this works :).

Light on monitor is green when turned on, but then turns orange with nothing on the screen. I can hear the computer running though.

your monitor is not recieving a video signal from your pc. check your connection to pc, then check things like bad memory card, etc. sometimes just shut pc on and off a few times clears this up.

Computer power problem

For solving your problem do the following:
1. Check that the power cable is connected properly to the monitor
2. See that the SMPS of the CPU is working
3. Check that the power output from the SMPS is upot 12V

If not change the SMPS it may be due to failure of SMPS.

Let me know if your problem is solved and rate me as FIXYA!

Compaq Presario 7118US has no video

Hello MDavis,

This may sound like a stupid suggestion, but does the motherboard have a built-in video card? If so sometimes they override the additional one, until it is set to use the additional one.

What happened before the picture died? Was the pc turned on and then all of a sudden went black? Was it turned off and then when you tried to turn it on - it wouldn't go on?

On the monitor, what do the lights look like when you turn on the pc? Is there a green light, does it turn orange? Is it always orange?
