Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When I turn on my computer the screen stays black for hours. Then it turns on. ???? Just the screen. I have tried to set the screen so it won't shut off but nothing seems to work.

I have gone into the power settings for the display and set to never shut off and it still does. I am on it right now. That is great but if I leave the computer for a while the screen shuts down again.

SOURCE: Startup problem

This could be a corrupt bios or a low cmos battery, follow instructions. Take the right hand side panel off the pc. Look for a disc shaped 3V watch type battery and replace (Very cheap) Look on the motherboard and reset the bios at the 'JBAT1' terminal put jumper(little plastic cap) from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds then back to pins 1-2. Restart pc and enter bios when prompted(or press F2 or DEL on startup) to set time and date, save settings and Exit bios. It should now boot ok.

The problem more likely seems with the power supply or the front power button. Donnot try switch on the computer again and again it may cause damage to the motherboard. Use the following link to pin point the problem.

SOURCE: Presario s6500nx stops loading at set up screen

sounds like you have board problems.
unplug everything from it first and see if this helps could be something you have plugged up could be bad too.
you will have to open box and look for damage and then one by one unplug something and then reboot to see what it might be.

SOURCE: ibm netvista shuts down on start up

1. if possible check and see how dusty the system is inside.. used compressed air cans to dust it off.. don't touch any components... watch esd so ground yourself while you're at it
then test
2. you're power supply may be dying: ground yourself to the same ground as the computer (watch for esd) and replace the powersupply.
then test.
the keyboard or controller may be damaged, check for resource conflicts in your bios related with keyboard (make sure no other items are using the same irq's.. check plugs, test with other key board.. replaced motherboard.
random shut down could also mean that the cpu is overheating.. make sure the cpu fan is undusted and working.

LG M227WDP turns black a couple of seconds


Do you have the "sleep" mode turned off on the computer?
As well, you can try different screen resolutions and refresh rate settings on the video section of your computer. That might make the connection to the TV more stable.

No picture on intermittent basis -


If you have tried using different input devices, looked for loose contacts
in power outlet, RC Jack, cable and connectors, the TV might need service.

Sound stays on, but no picture- goes black and stays that way.


This unit should still be under warranty and should be taken in for warranty service. Any attempt to access the interior will void the warranty. It is important that a complete description of the problem like you entered here be taken along when you bring the set in for service. This will insure that the servicer be able to reproduce the problem and resolve it.

From your description (and as a servicer), I would be looking for a component that is heat sensitive. These types of problems are fairly easy to locate and resolve.

Please take this in for warranty service and update this when you find out the details.

Thanks,
Dan

BLACK SCREEN · I TRIED TO RESTART MY PHONE AND NOW THE SCREEN IS ON BUT STAYS BLACK


I feel your pain. My g1 droped, the screen cracked, now 3 weeks later my screen turns black. Not even turning it off or removing the battery for hours changes this. However, i found if you wiggle the screen just right sometimes you can get your screen back... for a little bit.

The screen turns black and stays like that


Normally it's because the resolution is set too high for the monitor. This has happened to me when I switch a computer from a flat screen to a old "biggy-size" monitor.

try rebooting the computer and BEFORE you see the windows splash screen, start pushing the F8 key...this should bring up a menu...select VGA Mode...it won't be pretty, but once you're in..right click on the desktop and change the solution (try 800x600). restart the machine...that should work.
