If your PC has started HDD flashing and there is power to the monitor this means that the video card has not told the monitor to display, its kind of like in standby you can get this if the onboard VGA is faulty.

If you have another basic VGA card insert this into a spare PCI slot while the PC is off and plug the monitor into this instead if this works your monitor is fine and looks like your VGA on the mobo is trashed, just buy decent 512MB PCI or AGP video card and use this setup instead.

Its also good idea to disable the on board VGA in the BIOS.

How do I turn off yellow on my hp monitor? yellow light on monitor stays onm after computer uis shut down.


Push the power button. The yellow light it to indicate that the monitor is idle or that it has no signal, and will stay on as long as the power is on to the monitor.

Turn monitor on and the light stays yellow will not turn green and screen stays black


When it lights up the yellow light instead of the green one, that means that the monitor is not getting a signal from the computer.
The things to try (from simplest to most complex) are:

  1. Make sure the computer is on and not in "sleep" mode -- press the "Caps Lock" key and see if it lights up the caps-lock light on the keyboard.
  2. Make sure the video cable is connected from the computer to the monitor (that the cable hasn't come loose on either end)
  3. If your monitor has multiple inputs, make sure it's set to the right (probably analog VGA or DVI) input
  4. If your computer has more than one video output (like a laptop with it's internal screen plus the external monitor) then make sure the external monitor is enabled
If none of those solve it, post a comment back here and we can dive in to the more complex tests

Monitor not working


Try another monitor on your computer. If you still get a blank screen then its an issue with the computer not having any video coming out of the video card. If you hook up another monitor and you get video then its an issue with the original monitor.

Also try the original monitor on another computer and see if video comes up. If you still don't get video, that would mean the monitor is bad for sure since you would have tried it on two different computers.

That is normal condition, yellow = no video signal from PC since PC is off or PC in standby mode.

The fault is a back-light problem and the fault could be a faulty inverter board or a faulty CCFL lamp.

disconnect the monitor cable from your computer tower
