    i can't push the f8 key when the computer doesnt reconize the monitor, so there is no picture to be able to see anything. it just does not reconize the monitor. i think there is something more wrong with it then that,im thinking the mother board mabee gone.
    the computer boots up but nothing else happens after i turn it on.i just remembered that my step father had the same problem once and it was the motherboard.
    thanks guys....(if you think it might be something else please pm me thanks again...

Whenever you see your motherboard screen, start pressing F8 key.

Advance mode menu will appear->choose Enable VGA mode->Boot to the desktop>

Go to device manager->uninstall and reinstall driver for display adapter.

Reboot the machine and your issue would be fixed

My computer wont reconize my monitor?

Hello there ,
I am presuming you have a PC with Windows xp or 7 and have just connected a 'different' monitor. If not, then I misuderstood your question.
Normally, the default Windows Display Drivers are fine and you can change resolution etc.
1) If what you are saying is that when you plug in and leave plugged in, the monitor you have NO display, then do the following.. Go to Control Panel, then system then device manager, Find the 'Display adapter' highlight it left click then right click, UNINSTALL. Do the same for anything in device manager for any 'monitors'. RESTART the PC and windows should find the correct display adapter and monitor installed to your machine, Whatever happens you WILL see something on the monitor if it is working. If not, then your monitor is kaput.(broken).
2) If what you are saying is that the monitor IS showing displays and that windows doesn't 'recognise' your specific Monitor. Then you must go to the Monitor Manufacturers website Go to 'support' for your Model of Monitor and find the correct Driver for your monitor and version of Windows. Download it and install and you should be fine.
Sorry it souds long winded but this should help you sort it out.

I just clean installed win 7 and now I keep getting error messages about no driver for my co processor. I have an amd athlon x2.

Could be a bit issue, as window 7 sometime doesn't reconize a 64bit cpu if you install a 32bit operating system. What version of windows 7 are you using, home, basic, ultimate??? Some version will reconize it such as ultimate, and professional since they have xp installed on it. Most likely it's a bit issue since the athlon x2 are old model and with windows 7 32bit, it didn't reconize it, if you are installing the 32bit system.... microsoft is just trying to make money by issuing 1 key for 1 computer, and if you are resintalling the os, with a new hardware installed also, then it could also fail because the first time you install windows 7 with the hardware, the hardware is also registered to windows and furhter down the road if you try to install windows 7 with a new hardware, it wouldn't let you, or would crash.

To drag one screen to another, connect the secondary monitor and then right click on the desktop and click properties. click the settings tab then click the number two monitor in the picture and check the box below next to Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor. You should now be able to drag items from your main screen onto the secondary monitor. If the computer doesn't recognize the monitor, you may need to install a driver for the specific model, which you should be able to get from the manufacturer's website.
