Blinking Light Hi There, I've just installed a USB 2 PCI card. I've restarted my system but the monitor is not displaying anything and the front green light is flashing. I've reconnected the cables several times and nothing has changed. I tried hooking up the monitor to my laptop and it works fine. Any suggestions?

Re: Blinking Light

Or try to remove the card. Restart it back. If your system goes fine. It indicate that the card was not properly inserted or defected.

My monitor no display and light is blinking

if the monitor light is blinking this suggests that, there is no display signal coming from the tower. This could be because of the following .

1. Bad video card 2. Bad video software

To check,where the problem is , power of the system tower and remove the power cord from the back of the tower. Press and hold the power buttoon for 10 seconds and the reconnect the power cord and turn the tower on. Check if there is any display or the status of the light changes from amber to green for even a small instance.

If the light changes to green and back to amber the video port on the tower is bad

Alternatively you can connect the monitor to another desktop or laptop to check if the same is working correctly.

Thanks for using fixya

Monitor is blinking green light but no dark screen

does you cpu have a built in vga or you use a separate card? check at the back of the cpu, if you are using a cpu that has a built in vga and youre using a separate vga card may you have just connected your lcd monitor on the built in in which many cases will not work you need to connect your lcd on the separate vga card, if that is not the case and you head a beeping sound with intervals then there a problem with your vga card now if you use built in video you need to put on a separate vga card agp or pci-e which ever is supported by your motherboard, hope this help

No picture - power button is blinking green

The "blink" is an indication that the monitor is *NOT* getting any signal from your computer's video-card. Either your video-card is the problem, or your computer is "sleeping", and you cannot "wake" it.

Reboot your computer, and watch the monitor, to see if anything at all is displayed.

Reboot with a different monitor connected, to see if anything at all is displayed.

If another monitor works, your monitor is the problem. If neither monitor works, it's the vide-card inside your computer that is the problem.

Viewsonic vp930b-3

MY VP930b has the same problem.
It takes a very long time (5-10 minutes) before it becomes normal.
