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.

I have a dell vostro 1000 laptop. when i turned it on, the screen is dark. i can still see the desktop but it's very dark. i tried the FN F8 and the FN up and down arrows. What next?


Battery in the laptop could be dead. It doesn't have enough charge to boot into windows possibly.

If your into windows then check the power settings. You can adjust the brightness if vista type power in the search. xp go to control panel power and maintenance.

My computer begins to load windows, then after the screen with the windows logo and bars goes away my screen goes black.


Nine times out of ten if that's when your display stops, it's simply because your display settings are set to something that your monitor can't handle. Depending on what it's not supporting, some monitors respond by going black ... others just go "crazy" displaying unintelligible gibberish.
If that's the problem, it's fairly easy to fix.
First things first ... let's get you a bootable system.
Boot in safe mode - press F8 when the Windows loader presents you with the 30 second list of choices, and then select "Safe Mode" as your boot option.
Right click on the desktop and click Properties, and then on the Settings tab.
Now click and drag the Screen Resolution slider to the far left ... you want the smallest settings that your screen will support. Typically that'll be 640x480, or 800x600.
Also change the Color Quality dropdown to 256 colors, or whatever is lowest. (You probably don't need to go as low as 16 colors, if that's presented as an option.)
Now, click on the Advanced button, and then the Monitor tab of the resulting dialog box. Change the Screen refresh rate to 60 Hertz.
OK your way back out, and reboot your machine. If these setting were the source of the problem, it should now be able to boot normally. You may not like the screen settings, but at least you now have a place to start.
"Start experimenting with the settings to see what does, and does not, work with your monitor."
If the display is still blank or gibberish, the my recommendation is to once again boot into Safe Mode, possibly Safe Mode with networking, and update your video display drivers. It's likely that they are incorrect or otherwise broken. Now start experimenting with the settings to see what does, and does not, work with your monitor.
I tend to start with the screen resolution. Once again right click on the desktop and click Properties, then Settings, and then drag the Screen Resolution slider a notch or two to the right to increase your display resolution. Now click Apply. It should change the resolution and display a small message box asking if you want to accept this setting. If you don't respond within some time, it assumes you can't see it, so it resets to the previous setting. If the screen goes blank or you can't read it, wait at least one minute before doing anything. The problem may resolve itself, and you'll be able to say "well, that resolution doesn't work", and move on to try another.
If, after a full minute or more the screen remains blank or unreadable, you'll have to reboot into safe mode, as we did originally, to restore your setting. (Why might this happen? Windows "remembers" and doesn't bother to ask you if you reset to something that you previously said worked. If you mistakenly said "this works" when it didn't ... perhaps by random keyboarding while the display was blank ... well, that could be how we got here in the first place.) You can repeat this process of trial and error for each of the screen resolution, the color depth and the screen refresh rate. (For CRT displays, you really do want the refresh rate to be as high as your monitor supports.)

Intermittent monitor outages with MPC Transport T1200? Should I replace monitor or check wiring and how? New-to-me laptop, upon powering on no picture was visible, could hear all normal sounds of...


Looking through your owners manual, there are several keyboard shortcuts that can at least increase the appearance, although it sounds like a simple connection problem. Very hard to find a repair manual, although most transport laptops have a very thin multiwire cable connecting the monitor to the keyboard. Sounds like that cable has one or more wires broken, or just possibly a bad connection where the cable connects to the mbd. If you have the expertise to disassemble and repair, those cables are available at many places like Fry's Electronics, however many are soldered in place and require quite a bit of technical expertise to replace. I would suggest doing some price shopping at some of your local repair shops.Here is what the manual says: Problem
Action
The display panel is blank when the system is turned on
  • Make sure the TransPort T1200 is not in the Standby or Hibernate suspend modes. The display is turned off to conserve energy in these modes.
The screen is difficult to read
  • The display resolution should at least be set to at least1024x768 for optimal viewing.
  1. Go to [Start > Settings > Control Panel] and double-click the Display icon.
  2. Under the Settings page, set screen resolution to at least 1024x768 and choose at least 256 colors.
The screen flickers
It is normal if the display flickers a few times during shutting down or powering up.
Nothing appears on the screen.
  • During operation, the screen may automatically turn off as a result of power management. Press any key to see if the screen comes back.
  • The brightness level might be too low. Increase brightness by pressing [Fn+F7].
  • The display output might be set to an external device. To switch the display back to the LCD, press [Fn+F5], or change the display through the settings in Display Properties.
The characters on the screen are dim.
Adjust the brightness and/or contrast.

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.
