Question about LG L1915S 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Now only PC starts booting up but then stops dead, blank screen

I was having problems adjusting the resolution (broken characters, screen too bright, etc.), so I decided to run the Forte Manager program (which seemed to have already loaded itself when I turned on the monitor for the first time. This made the problem worse. LG support suggested I re-hookup my old CRT monitor and see if it worked okay. It didn't; same problem. II finally decided it made sense to uninstall Forte Manager (must have installed itself when I plugged in and inserted the cable...), then to reinstall. That's when I got the blank screen and only the boot startup. I kept pressing F2 to try to manual bootup in safe mode, but NOTHING. Someone said I must have uninstalled the video driver, but how can that have been if there was one on the PC before I got the new monitor and I only uninstalled Forte Manager? Now I have no computer and no monitor. HELP!

Thanks to anyone who can guide me...even to a consultant to call in the NYC area.

Try pushing F8 on startup, this will get you into the safe mode menu. From there select VGA mode. This will start your computer with the most basic set of video drivers.

You should be able to get one of the two monitors working this way.

Uninstalation of monitor driver HP2509 stopped monitor to display.shows blank screen in vista desktop

The monitor driver only tells the video card which video resolutions are supported by the monitor. The video card is probably set to the wrong resolution. You can boot into safe mode, set the screen resolution to one the monitor supports, and you should be good to go. You don't actually "need" a monitor driver.

I have a Samsung SuncMaster 940BW 19'' LCD Monitor. It's a geat Monitor in my humble opinion in everything, except that since i got it i have one problem with it, and it wasnt possible for me...

This is a common problem with monitors when changing resolution. What probably happened is you may have tried to change the resolution, or an application changed the resolution, to an incompatible resolution.

For example, if you have a tiny little screen it can't display that huge resolution that a 32 inch monitor has. So, your monitor is stuck in that wrong resolution.

To fix this problem, you need to boot into Safe Mode. Restart your computer, and as it is booting up tap F8 a bunch of times, and then select Boot into Safe Mode.

When it boots up, right click on the desktop, click Properties (Windows XP) or Screen Resolution (Windows 7). When the window pops up, click Settings (if on Windows XP, if on Windows 7 skip to next step). From this window, change the resolution back to the basic 800 x 600 screen resolution.

Now, reboot your computer normally. You should be able to see the desktop. Now, you can do the same thing that you did in safe mode and turn up your resolution. BUT, when you change it, if the screen goes BLANK again, DO NOT press anything. After 15 seconds it should go back, and you can try a lower resolution.

Hope this helps! Thanks for using FixYa.

Black/blank lcd screen after 2 seconds

try this - boot into "safe mode" - (this loads just minimal drivers). Reboot and press F8 while it's booting - it will ask if you want to boot into safe mode - say yes - if the screen works with the low resolution inherent drivers, it's probably a driver issue, or if you have a video card, it may not be able to work at the higher resolutions (which could be a card issue)

This should help you narrow down if the screen actually works, or if it's a graphics card and/or driver issue.

If it works - try reloading the driver for your graphics card (if you don't have a graphics card - try reloading both the chipset driver and the video driver from the manufacturer)

let me know if this works...

(I had a Toshiba Tecra laptop that did the exact thing - you could see the Windows boot menu, and once it completed boot up, the screen would go black - if you started it in safe mode (crummy resolution) it worked but of course the graphics are unacceptable at that resolution)

Turns out this is common with those, it was the graphic card built into the motherboard that's shot....

Pop up auto adjust in prograss

I had the same problem with my HP LCD. I'll turn on the monitor and it will run auto adjust and set everything to the max making the screen very bright. What I did was remove the button panel board and put it back. Everything works fine since then.

your pc may be set to a resolution that is out of range for the monitor. Boot into "Safe mode" reset the Display settings to 640 x 480. reboot into normal mode then change the screen settings to your desired resolution.
