Re: Desktop monitor


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 no display even at start it doesn't turn on my monitor

Hi Anthony,
Does the PC actually start up? In other words do the front panel lights come on and can you see the power supply fan turn at the rear where you plug in your power cable?

If so, try removing the RAM memory from the motherboard, clean the connectors with some surgical spirits or anti-static spray, then replace the RAM firmly back in their slots and try turning on your PC again.

Let me know if you still have a problem after following this procedure.
Best wishes,

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 ?

Aadab: when the moniter ON after few second the moniter is does not give display and when we on and off the moniter so then the picture displayed why this problem is i recover it.

That is because the settings on the power are set for the monitor to go to sleep if not in use.. It is a very quick and easy fix.. Just right click anywhere on the desktop that doesn't have any icons, the display properties box will appear, then click on screen saver under monitor power click on power, there you could set the monitor never to turn off... Let me know if this solved the problem and good luck..

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

all you need to do is update the drivers for monitor or the monitor is going out just go your hardware and click on the monitor then update drivers it will tell you if it is working properly
