Disconnect the monitor from the tower and then turn on the monitor.
If u get a msg like no input signal or check video cable then the monitor is fine. If this is the case, it could be a problem with the tower or the cable.

Both leds are on

Have you checked the cable and reseated it, check for bent pins in the connectors. Perhaps the Graphics card/adapter is gone.

HDMi screen doesn't turn on

First, remove your HDMI-cable from your monitor and pc, then plug it back in.

If this doesn't work, go to your desktop and press your right-mouse button at an empty space and then select resolution. Then press detect.

I hope this works.

I have a Jensen (JE1909ACB) 19 LCD TV Can't get it to hook up as a monitor on my desktop. It reply's unsupported mode.

Are you using the VGA port on the Jensen TV? What is your computer's OS?

The usual reason for the unsupported mode message is that the the computer did not recognize the TV as a monitor on boot up or that the previous settings were incompatible with the TV. (For example, if you previously had a CRT connected to the computer and used a refresh rate of 75 Hz, the TV can't handle the refresh rate. It needs to be set at 60 Hz.)

First turn off both the TV and the computer. Then turn on the TV and set it for the PC input (assuming you are using the VGA port). Next turn on the computer. If you have Windows XP or later, it should find the TV and set the resolution without any input. (If it doesn't, use a different monitor and set the resolution to 1366 x 768 and 60 Hz. Then try again.) If you used the HDMI port, try the VGA port. This TV doesn't understand a computer signal over the HDMI port (only set top boxes).

I hope this helps.

After powering on monitor says no sync

I've almost the same problem. When the system turns on the monitor doesn't sync. After a variable trials with down/up the sync is enabled and the computer starts.A very clear event occurs : when the monitor can''t sync ( and system doesn't boot)you can hear very clear a high fan rotation. When I look/hear in the system the Isuspect the cpu fan. The system boots ( monitor syncs) when the fan rotationgoes from high to low. So the system hangs on an internal check on the rotation speed of the cpu fan.I've googled a lot , but until now doesn't find an answer . Possibilties which I think about : replace cpu fan , clean cpu fun ( but it looks clean).I cannot measure the fan rotation speed when the system is hanging. At normal rotation all info can retrieved witth the program cpu-z.Did you already have a solution ?

I have a HP Pavillion a6228x PC and the monitor turned black, but the computer is still running. We have restarted it but it turns black again after turning on. What is the problem?

Have you check the monitor? maybe the problem is in the LCD monitor or the CRT. If the monitor is good. Then check your computer's hardware. Is there a Video card on your computer?. If there is one the remove it, be sure that the computer is turned off before removing the card. Then use the on board video output usually color blue. Then turned on the computer again.

Hope this may help you

My acer monitor p191w will turn on acer logo comes on goes black then a screen comes out saying no signal then turns of light turns yellow ...tried restarting monitor nothing

Connect the monitor to a different computer, to see if the monitor works at all.

Connect a different monitor to your computer, to see if your computer really is "sending" a video-signal through the "data" cable. If not, then either the data-cable or the video-card inside the computer is faulty.

Lcd screen is flickering on and off very fast

Disconnect the lcd from the computer. Turn on the LCD and see if it still flickers fast. If it doesn't then go ahead reconnect the lcd back to the computer. If its still flickering, then go ahead and hook it up to another laptop or desktop. If it doesn't flicker on another computer then that means there is a problems with the video card on the original computer.
If it still flickers then that means the lcd is bad and would need to be replaced.

If your graphics card works on another pc but not on yours then you should try another graphics card on your pc. If it also doesn't work it means it's a problem with your motherboard.

I reinstall xp2 in my desktop, after the installation my monitor will turn off every time i click my mouse anywhere on the desktop and turn on again, I try to run on safe mode monitor will not turn on...

Sounds like your video card for your computer doesn't have the correct drivers installed on your computer. Go the the company's website of your graphics card and download the correct drivers for XP. Should fix your problem.
