Question about XFX GeForce FX 6800 (256 MB) Graphic Card

1 Answer

Black screen I inherited an old computer and had to get a monitor for it. The monitor didn't work well with it, so the guy told me to disable the display adaptor. Why I don't know. So now when I turn the computer on, I get a black screen. So obviously I can't even see where I am going to re-enable. I tried the voice narrator and am getting no where. Is there a solution to this problem???

    I did try enabling the VGA from f8 and it did not work. Oddly enough I plugged the monitor into another PC and was able to get a "picture" and was able to do a rollback to before the date I messed it up. Now I am back at square one. The monitor has very low resolution and I am unable to change it. I think the monitor is not compatible with the computer. Now I am trying to decide if I should take the monitor back or junk pile the computer...

Hi to all, can you help me guys, i am having a problem with my Lcd monitor AOCTFT1560ps, my screen turns black after a few seconds and my OSD was locked..... HELP ME GUYS!! thanks

This link may help. You can try to do something if it is connected to a computer. If not, you can disconnect the video cable from both end and wait for 5 minutes and reconnect it. After your monitor wake up, use your OSD to disable sleeping mode, hiberation mode or turn off monitor mode within power options.

When i first turn my monitor on it works great for a few seconds. If i turn it off and back on it works for a few seconds again then blacks out. If i un plug the power source instead of the on/off button...

larry946, Sorry guy... Your power supply is not OK!!! I'm talking about the one inside the lcd monitor!! It seems as if it is detecting a "FAULT CONDITION" and then proceeds to go into "partial" or "full" shutdown mode, trying to avert a catastrophic, nonrecoverable failure. e.g. sparks smoke, fire. Partial = black screen with data still visible when flashlight held 1 inch from screen. Full = black and blank screen. What will you do now? The only good thing you told me was "WORKS GREAT FOR A FEW SECONDS" !!! That makes it a good CANDIDATE for a low cost repair if you do a DIY fix. If StarLogic warranty has expired and they don't have a "cash+old unit" swapout program for a refurbed unit, you will need to explore all your other options. Read thru my FIXYA profile and you will soon discover that your StarLogic unit is no different than any other CCFL backlit LCD monitor. Follow the links to the other websites you find in the profile to help you make the decision to DIY or contract out (more$$) the needed repair to your unit. READING is free!!! So do a lot of reading, and you will be better informed and not subject to getting ripped-off for $90 when it should have been only $25 to $45!!! Good luck with the repair! 12fixlouie or old aka louie12fix

Monitor receiving signal, but no image


I see many monitor with that trouble.
When you turn on comp., you can have a picture on monitor about 10-30 min. and that go in black screen, or If you change resolution again go in black screen.
You must repair monitor or bay another.

Philips Brilliance 200 W 6 Flat Screen Monitor blacks out

sounds like the monitor is burning out or color is out of alignment could be result of burning out and no it's not worth repairing it. had one guy repair a montior a while back, could be looking at easy 200 to 400 bucks repair. not worth it. much cheaper to buy.

If it worked on a computer at the IT person, it is most likely a faulty graphics card in your computer. You may want to get that checked out.

Monitor clinks off and on(black screen)

I would start up in safe mode, and disable that driver. It sounds like it is a bad driver on your new pc. Then turn off the pc, hook up your new monitor and start up fresh. Your pc should automatically find the best compatible driver for you. If this won't do, can you please list the driver you did use? Maybe we can search for another one that would be compatible with your model monitor.
