SOURCE: the monitor shuts off. Turning the power off

the monitor is going into power saving mode ... it can happen if it is not receiving any signal from the pc ( pc is not running or booted properly, bad video cable connection monitor to pc) or the pc is itself in suspend/standby mode.

I have an HP Compaq PC. A d530s running Windows XP Professional. When I turn the PC on, the power light flashes red 4 times (1 red flash per second). Pauses ~3 seconds and repeats the red flashing. Just...


A bad power supply, OR a bad motherboard. And I hate to tell you, but it's more common for the motherboard to fail first. Especially in those HP/Compaq slimline PCs.

It's because there's very little airflow, and system overheats and burns out. I've had many customers with the same issue.

The good news is you can still recover your data from the hard drive, just take the drive out, and hook it up inside another desktop with SATA connections, or get a SATA-to-USB adapter, they cost about $15

I have an old Princeton VL 173 that I had been using with an old computer running Windows XP Pro. It works fine. Got a computer with an Asus MB and a Intel Core 2 Quad running Windows 7 Home Premium...


It sounds like a driver/software issue. When you ran the Princeton VL173 on XP you probably had all the correct software for your video card and the correct drivers to support your video output. When you changes OS to Windows 7, the XP drivers are no longer in place. My best guess is that you need to find and install the correct drivers for your system video and for your video card that are Windows 7 compatible. The old XP drivers will not work in Windows 7.

I am running XP with a Princeton VL173. It works great. I identified the correct video drivers for my system and installed them. My video card is nVidia 8800GT. I downloaded and installed the latest software from nVidia and installed it. It runs like a champ.

Several months ago my display died. It was just blank -- black. I tried using a power supply (AC adapter) from an old HP printer that died, and it worked! The plugs were identical, and the power output profiles were very nearly identical. It has been rinnung great for many months now.

I hope this helps.

When i connect my monitor to my laptop it shows the monitor is not picking up any signal. why can't i see anything?


Did you use the Fn key and either F5, 6, or 7 to select the internal, external, or both? It depend on the make and model of the laptop.

My LCD Monitor is blinking on & off constantly


It may need a different outlet, if it is not getting proper power. Small chance that the video cable has gone bad, but more likely the monitor is damaged. But try those two things and call Princeton.
