Is video card/motherboard dead?


Do you normally "logon" to the computer or does it load completely by itself.
If you wait for the system to "settle" you can test the computer w/o the monitor:
1. Press the "windows logo" key on the lower left of your keyboard
2. Press the letter R
3 Type WRITE
4. Type a few random letters ~ran~dom~
5. Press this three key sequence:
[Alt]F [P]

(Alt & F) together then the P key

Your random document will print if the computer is actually running.

ok, I suggest you reset your BIOS by removing the mobo battery or by shorting the "reset" pins next to the nattery or BIOS chip.
Go from there...

Flat screen monitor functioning strangely


Sounds like there maybe bad caps on the power board in the LCD. Try a different monitor on your computer and if the known working monitor comes on with the computer and behaves properly then you know its a problem with your original monitor. If the known working monitor acts strange as well then you know its a problem with the video card. Let me know what happens.

Can't get LG CRT monitor to work at all.


If the computer has DVI male, you simply need a VGA to DVI adapter.
However, the plugs on the computer should all be male, and cables coming from the monitor female. It seems you may be trying the wrong port.

Monitor lcd acer al2016w 20" letters and image are fuzzy,,why?


I also have an Asrock motherboard (M266A) and have the AL2216W. The image and text is also fuzzy. I did improve it a by by unplugging/replugging all of the connectors on the back of the computer. I believe my mouse had a somewhat loose connection and this was causing interference. I can actually create interference on screen by moving my mouse up and down.
These Acer monitors seem to be very sensitive. I also tried this monitor on a old Desktop with Win98 and another new laptop with XP and it looks good on those computers, but not on my Asrock based system.

LCD monitor image


I just had the same problem! Was afraid I needed a new video card. (--a suggestion found on another forum.) But a friend suggested a low tech solution. After turning the computer off, I opened the CPU casing and blew pressurized air inside to clear the dust out and the problem went away. Hope this helps.

Monitor Went Black


It sounds like the monitor might be going bad. I would try hooking up another computer to it. If it works with another computer, then I would say the Video card might be going bad.
