Video card? Last week my monitor went blank. I hit the reboot buttom and it came back. It eventually got to the point it would not come back. I swapped it out for another monitor. This monitor is doing something similar...going blank, going white, odd graphics. If I reboot the system, it comes back fine and works until I leave the machine. Come to think of it, it works until it goes into "sleep mode". Then it messes up.Is this the video card or something else? Running Windows XP on a machine about 4 years old. Thanks!!

Monitor is changing colors and won't wake up

This problem should not be only with your monitor, but also with your video card. You might have left one image sitting for long hours. There is no specific solution, but for Lcd users, you can try this. Leave the monitor off for few hours without any connection, maybe power chord or vga/dvi/hdmi cable. If this doesn't fix then the problem must be from your video card. You can try the monitor on another system to make sure, which one is the culprit. Your last choice is to reset the bios, to do this, remove the bios battery and leave it for few minutes outside (2 mins will do) and put it back. Reboot your system, this will fix your problem. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Each monitor has a different response to "no activity" from the system. So for the monitor, if you get a chance, try your monitor on another machine that you know does function. At work, neighbour, or other.

For the computer, does the it (beep) or POST (Power On Selft Test) when you turn it on, do you see and hear what you would if the monitor was connected?

If it sounds normal, then everything should be fine and luck might have it, your backup monitor is not working either, try another one from the same friend or neighbour above.

If it doesn't POST, you could have a video or other card or ribbon connection loose in the computer. Either you or a friend, or the service center, whichever feels comfortable reseating all the external and internal equipment, bearing in mind static electricity and proper handling measures for the computer.

Have HP slimline series. Came back from a break.

Try another monitor on it to verify it is the video card that has gone bad. If it does not work with another monitor then that is the likely culprit.

Boot performance monitoring error

>> Tired to reboot several times and still no video.
>> Waited until the next day and the video was working.
>> Very strange.

Sounds like overheating, either inside the monitor, or on the video-card, or inside the computer.

When it happens again, disconnect the data-cable from monitor from the desktop computer, and connect the data-cable to a laptop computer.
If the monitor works, then it's not the monitor that is the problem.

Also, when it happens again, have another monitor, and connect it, to see if the other monitor works, or if the video-card cannot "drive" either monitor.

Monitor not displaying

our video driver probably was updated. You can try rebooting the PC hitting F8 and going to "Last Known Good Configuration" You can also try running a system restore to rollback to before you were having the issue. Finally you can reboot hit F8 boot into safe mode, go to control panel and system, go into the device manager double-click on the video card driver and roll it back to the previous version.

I do not think it is the monitor's connection since you would have not initially seen the Window's splash screen.
