Computer turns on, but there is no display on monitor.

My monitor stays completely black when I turn on the computer. I switched out the monitor with my other monitor (which works perfectly on my other computer) and had the same problem--black screen. Is the video card bad? I believe the video is built-in. Can I buy a video card and put it in one of the two open PCI slots?

i turned my computer off one night before bed as usual, the next morning when i turned it back on, everything came on, but my moniter's orange light never turned green, So i hooked the minitor to my other computer and it worked perfectly, So i bought a G-force MX 4000 vidio card and installed it in my AGPro port and I still dont get nothing, And i just had a new mother board put in my computer not even 3 weeks ago by a service tech,could you please help me solve this problem? I have a 15 inch. flat screen made by Magnavox, And my computer is a e Machine T3410.

My goodness.. you have spent a lot in your computer i think.. i dont think changing mother board and installing a new vedio card will solve this problem.
as u have said that u have installed a new card make sure that you are giving the connections of your monitor to the gforce card and not to the mother board again.

if connection for monitor is going for gforce properly your RAM is the problem. as per your configuration its single 512mb ram. i would advice you to go and get another DDR RAM(same 512 prefrably) from any of your friend and put it in you mother board in by removing the normal RAM you had.
this will work for sure i think.
if this is not working dont rate me in-approtiate. i just triend my best. sorry and tahnks.. good luck

When monitor is turned on, it flickers 3 times and then goes blank


Does the computer stay on or switch off?
If the computer stays on and the monitor completely switches off then it's a monitor power problem.
Make sure all connections are securely connected.
If the computer also completely switches off then it's more likely to be a computer problem.
If it's a monitor problem then the monitor will have to go to a monitor repair shop.
If the box does switch off then let us know to continue to troubleshoot.

Dell E171FP Monitor goes black after 2 secs


Hi, I don't think the problem is with your monitor. Your monitor sounds like it's doing exactly what it's supposed to do. The monitor is supposed to turn off if there's no cable attached, which means there's no signal input. When the screen goes black, does the power light stay on and turn orange? or does it go off as well? I would recommend that you lower your screen resolution to 1280x1024 or lower in the Display Properties window, then remove your primary monitor, and connect the monitor to your desktop computer. You should see it light up when connected. The monitor auto-senses when there's a computer attached to the cable and when there's a signal. If it doesn't see a signal, it goes black to save power.

The screen turns black and stays like that


Normally it's because the resolution is set too high for the monitor. This has happened to me when I switch a computer from a flat screen to a old "biggy-size" monitor.

try rebooting the computer and BEFORE you see the windows splash screen, start pushing the F8 key...this should bring up a menu...select VGA Mode...it won't be pretty, but once you're in..right click on the desktop and change the solution (try 800x600). restart the machine...that should work.

No pic on screen


Double check all of your connections. It appears the video cable is not plugged in completely. Try another monitor if possible to see if the computer is actually outputting video.

Sylvania (proview) cl2072b flat panel monitor


Well the first and second paragraphs make me say the Inverter/power board must be replaced.

A white display typically means either your display cable (in your monitor) is loose or logic board is dead.

Either one of these things typically mean take it in for an estimate to repair, and if it's too much, buy a new one.
With your luck I think I might switch to big cheap CRT.

The builtin video card is probably bad. Yes, you can get a PCI video card.
