Question about Computers & Internet
Hey all,I've been rebuilding a pc.I tried hooking this older packard bell monitor up to 2 different motherboards and all I get is this screen that has a bunch of 1x1 squares with like 6 of them darker in the middle.The computer seems to be booting fine,but its like the monitor isnt recognizing the signal.I know its not the graphics card,what does this screen mean?
Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
