Question about Nokia 445 X (White) 21 in.CRT Conventional Monitor

1 Answer

Strange clicking noises

Recently, my Nokia 445X monitor has been producing strange clicking noises as I boot up my computer into Windows 98SE, and after Shutdown before the computer turns itself off. In the former case, the noises occur between (not during) screen shots of my usual BIOS information, RAID and SCSI controller scanning, and AVG Free boot scanning. Once in Windows, there is no problem. This did not happen before. Can anyone out there tell me what can be generically causing such a phenomena in a monitor such as mine? Could it also be my video card (ATI Radeon X800 Pro)? Thanks ahead of time for any assistance that can be provided on this somewhat vexing problem...

Monitor goes on and off........seemed to come on for the xp boot, but then disappears or is intermittant when the xp login page appears. Only fix sometimes is to reboot the computer. Very strange. Only...

In your Windows XP
  1. Go to Start and click
  2. The Start menu will open
  3. In the start menu click settings
  4. In the settings select "Control Panel"
  5. The Window of control Panel click "Power Options"
  6. In the Power options you will find Display time settings. These are the time settings that determine the time like if your computer stay idle for 5 min, the display will shut down.
  7. I suspect that this time is set to be very low like if there is no activity on the computer such as key punching, typically happens when you are reading an e-book Windows will automatically shut down the display. So you can increase the idle time to say 7-10 minutes and/or a similar setting is "Put the computer to sleep". Try to carefully alter the time values and you will find a good settings that work for you.
If the above tip does not work then there is definitely something wrong with your monitor's hardware most probably the power supply. You need to check it with a repair shop.

Good Luck!

Strange noise, won't power up

It can be caps are leaking, arcing in the lamp assemblies, bad solder joints. You will need to open it up and inspect the inside before causing more damages.
Please look through my pictures so you will have some ideas what to look for inside:

Doisplay menu comes on for nothing

annalyca, If you can swap-in a KNOWN GOOD monitor to prove pc is ok, then you will know monitor is probably at fault. When very strange and weird things begin to appear on the lcd panel for no reason at all, I would first suspect that the units "switch-mode-power-supply" will need to be checked for proper output voltage and noise levels are within specification. SMPS's by design are "noise dirty" to begin with, and that's what makes them CHEAP. Hope this was of some help.

Dark screen samsung syncmaster 920 N strange noise behind it

The clicking sound you hear is the power supply board trying to start up, this indicates the board has failed. This is a common problem with all LCD monitors after a few years of use. Parts called capacitors on the power supply board fail and they will keep the power supply from starting up correctly. If you can solder then you can repair the board yourself. Here is a link to a repair guide with pictures and videos showing how to dis-assemble the unit and then what to look for and replace to rebuild the board and get the unit back running.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

I have a dell with windows vista. the monitor is 20 or 21 inches wide screen. I recently had a friend try to install windows xp but at the last attempt he tried to reformat my computer & install it xp...

You can adjust the screen resolution to increase the size of the image to fill the screen.
Go to the Control Panel - Display - Settings and adjust the screen resolution to 1280 X 1200 pixels. If this still doesn't fill the screen then increase it further say 1600 X 1200 pixels even higher if necessary.

My monitor is flashing pretty colors.

Either a bad video card or cable. Wiggle the cable at the connection points. I would think video card. If it's internal, and you are sure it's a bad internal video, a cheap video card can be a quick check. See if a tech friend has a standard PCI video card to borrow. Let someone knowledgeable install it. Must set BIOS to run video from card installed.

245BW monitor not working (stranges colors ad aeternam...)

I had the same problems as almost all of these people and the answer seems to be that I uninstall the current Nvidia Drivers and use a previous set. The 169.28 were a real problem for me. Just when I thought it was working I would get the strange wash out and I could not turn it off except with the back power switch, aslo using the DVI turns off all the on screen controls.

Good Luck

HP mx705 17 in.CRT --Blank monitor

I assume the monitor is still plugged into the back of the system?

If so, do you get any beeps which can denote error codes for the system?  Put your ear to the monitor, any strange whinning noise?
