Computer having touble booting up

When the computer is loading there are a bunch of lines going vertical on the screen and then the screen goes black and says input signal is out of range please change to recomended settings (1680 by 1050). So far i have checked the wire conecting the moniter to the computer and tried the auto button on the moniter. But nothing has worked so far.

Please see this HP support article for help troubleshooting the monitor. If you have another computer or another monitor available to swap, this will help to isolate the cause of the problem as the monitor or the video/graphics settings or card in the computer. This article could also prove helpful, and just in case, here's a link to your hP home support page.
You could try tapping F8 as the system boots and enter safe mode. This will use only default vga settings for the monitor. If you can enter safe mode ok, go to the display settings and lower the resolution a couple of notches and reboot. If that doesn't help, try lowering the refresh rate to 60 hz, though that's better for lcd than crt. Apply & reboot.
Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Try going into safe mode (VGA mode) and see if this works. If you cannot go into safe mode you may have a problem with your video card. Also if you set your resolution too high for the monitor, you will get this problem. If you have another computer and remote desktop is enabled on your problem PC try to Remote Desktop in from the working comptuer and change the resolution settings to a lower setting on the problem computer.

Unplug the monitor video cable from the computer. Power on the monitor and see if you get the same results. If so then your monitor is defective.

MONITOR HD2200. I TURN IT ON AND THE SCREEN GOES WHITE THEN A FEW VERTICAL COLOR LINES APPEARS AND AFTER A FEW SECONDS IT GOES BLACK.


Hello,

IF YOU HAVE A SOLID BLACK LINE RUNNING VERTICALLY THEN YOU HAVE A FAULTY MATRIX INVERTER. IF CENTRAL THE MAIN VERTICAL INVERTER NEEDS CHANGED. LEFT = LEFT VERTICAL INVERTER RIGHT=RIGHT.........

ANOTHER WAY TO GET THIS FAULT IS WORN OR DAMAGED RIBBON/PLASTIC GOING FROM THE SCREEN MATRIX TO THE INVERTER

Hope this will help out in solving the problem....

Hi

It seems that you need to use the latest driver for the graphic card.

You can do that through visiting the manufacture's website, choose your laptop model, OS, look for video (vga) driver, and download it.
Please tell us your results
Good Luck

My logo comes up then the intel logo and a small white line then the screen goes black and nothing else will load. Is there something I can try?


Try loading in "SafeMode" when you cut on computer, tap F8, a screen will pop up with a bunch of ways to start the computer, arrow to "Safe Mode" and press enter, If it boots now you probably have a virus. If you have a antivirus program run it.

When you power up 1 side of the screen has vertical lines. the other side is black. then the whole screen goes black and stays black.


sounds like your screen has a bunch of dead pixles on it unless your under warrenty you will pretty much have to purchase another but before you come to this decision make shure and look at you cable on your connection make sure there are no bent or missing pins and that it is secure and the the video card is secure

My computer wont start up


First try pressing F2 at start up to see if you can get to setup. Also pressing F12 may get you a boot menu. If cd is already set as first boot you may get a chance to boot from a Windows cd. The idea here is to get to a minimal Windows configuration like setup or safe mode (F8) to see if this is a hardware or operating system fault. Two common issues with eMachines are power supply problems where repetitive reboots can actually fry the motherboard or if the PC has a few years use the CMOS battery. Steve Medley

Vertical Lines Display - Recovery shows setup not complete


As per my experience, the problem is not because of your Video Card/Driver. Such a problem arises due to faulty RAM. Change your RAM and enjoy computing.

Will it boot from a CD/DVD? Make sure the boot sequence is set to boot CD first and then see if it will boot into setup from a CD/DVD. If it will, then maybe try reinstalling windows. Hope this helps.
