No it's not in your cord. It lies in the drivers for your monitor. Often times updates come through for your security and for your hardware. A lot of these updates can misconfigure your hardware drivers upon the reboot. You should be able to get the correct fix for this by going to the FAQ's in the Microsoft site.Or, if by the small chance you still have the install disc for your monitor, this would be a good time to run it. You might also try restoring back to the day when you last recall the monitor working well in the "System restore" section of your control panel.

Toshiba satellite C655 laptop has black screen with blinking cursor. It did complete some Windows updates. I was on the Internet then my laptop just shut down and it in this black screen with blinking...


Turn the computer off all of the way by holding in the power button until it shuts off.

Turn it back on and immediately start tapping the F8 key. It should bring you to a menu that has an option for going to "Last Known Good Configuration". Choose that option and see if it boots up.

If pressing F8 doesn't bring you to the menu - you may need to run diagnostics on the computer. To get to the diagnostics, attempt to boot to the Boot Menu by pressing F11 or F12 at the boot screen and see if it gives you the option to run diagnostics.

Computer shuts down and doesnt allow to use f8. shuts down first. what to do? virus help?


Your use of "and" is confusing. F8 is not used during the shut down process; it is used during the boot up process. Since you mention F8, it is presumed that you want to use F8 to get into "Safe Mode" instead. When you re-boot a running computer, very often you will not be able to use F8, but if you totally shut down, then start from scratch, you should be able to hold the F8 key down and it intercept the boot up process to handle things properly. Don't worry if you hear a lot of beeps during the boot up process with the key pressed; it merely means the keyboard buffer is receiving more key presses than it has room for. Since they all are F8, when the boot up process looks at the characters from the keyboard, it will see the F8 key, then display the menu options to boot into Safe Mode.

L1932TQ LCD Monitor won't turn on.


I'm affraid you did about everything you can to find the issue. Trying to isolate the problem is the best way to come close to a solution eventually. But after all the tests you did, it seems that the monitor itself got a problem. I dont suggest you to try to fix it yourself, some electrical parts may need to be electrically discharged before being removed from the monitor. If your monitor is still in waranty, contact LG for support. Otherwise, you could bring it to a local tv/monitor store to see if they can repair it. LG support rep could also give you some advice, maybe they got a certified partner in your area that could take a look at it. P.S. If your computer is on windows XP it should shut down the usual way just by pressing the power button once. The shutdown will be the same as if you go Start->Shutdown->Shutdown the computer.

The computer starts then shuts down.


Try booting up the computer pressing whatever key the Dell needs to boot into BIOS (F10, Delete key, F1...pay attention to the screen) and leave the computer on for about 15min. See if it cuts off then. If it does its more than likely your power supply. If it doesn't then its not hardware related.

when you say you have it plugged into the on-board video output.. does that mean there is a graphics card installed too? used to be graphics card installed? if there is or was then its possible that there is a bois setting that tells your computer to use the existent or non-existent graphics card. either was your onboard is going to shut down. This is one theory.. but since its is turning off once you get to your desk top the more likely reason is that its software based and you either have the wrong resolution, driver, or refresh rate selected to use when windows boots. Toy around with diffrent resolutions, refresh rates, also if you have a graphics card plug it into that. your on board most certinly will not be enabled if you have a graphics card.

VGA MODE in vista:

Restart the computer and immediately start pressing the F8 key, once per second. At the selection screen, use the up/down keys to select "Enable VGA Mode", then press the "Enter" key.. If it works, it will bring up the basic VGA drivers in "normal" Windows and should allow you to install the Vista compatible drivers for your new card. After installing the new drivers, restart the computer and if it remains in VGA, you should then be able to adjust the resolution, etc. from the "Display Properties".

Sounds like the monitor is overheating. The internal power supply maybe going bad. Ray
