Monitor Image Partially Freeze and PC Stop working

I have a problem with my 4-year-old PC. Occasionally, I can boot up my PC and it can goes into the OS Windows XP. But now, after several minutes, the Monitor will display partial freeze image with abrupt coloring and the PC will hang (input not working anymore). Previously, it happens once in a while, but now it starts right after I turn on the PC.

I suspect it is the Video Card error as I have tried using my Friend's monitor and it still display the same symptom.

    Well, One of the video card's fan stop turning as it is covered by dust.. I strongly suspect the video card, but i try to avoid the hassle if my video card is still alright =)

    Thanks for the comment. I will vacuum once in a while in the future, provided I have bought vacuum cleaner too =).



    I have changed the video card and it works perfectly well now. Thanks ;)

Hey, sounds like your videocard is about to fail. the only option now is to replace the card with another.

The card is damaged. Possibly overheating have you cleaned your pc recently? Might be full of dust and burned.

    I hope you cleaned it, vacuum cleaner can suck it all out, you can use it on fans also, just dont press hard or too long, let the fans spin and the dust will come off hopefully not in your face :-P



    good luck! :-)

I tested in my PC with the cables of my own monitor (Benq FP92Wa) and the image pop-up just fine, but after 5 seconds the monitor goes black. I tried to reboot in safe mode but the same thing happens


If the monitor has the same problem on two different computers, it is most likely the monitor has a problem. This monitor is probably about 9 years old, and it would probably cost more to fix it than to buy a new one.

My Acer Laptop screen fades or goes out when moved


Try reseating the video cable/connector. Also connect an external monitor to the external video port, power up the monitor first then boot up the laptop. The video image should automatically divert to the monitor, if you see a normal video image then the video card is OK and the problem most likely the LCD screen.

When I turn on my monitor I can see the Gateway letters come on the screen but then it just goes dark again. It comes on for a split second and then goes dark again.


joel_herrera, Yes, this is a very common symptom of a failing Switch-Mode-Power-Supply and/or Inverter circuit! Very common in 2-4 year old lcd/fpd's. How old is your's? Do you have warranty? Have you tried the Flashlight test? DO THIS! Reconnect lcd monitor to your fully booted PC with a known good WIN desktop screen. Then power "on" the HD2201 and tell me what happens and what you see or don't see after the screen goes BLACK! Shine a bright flashlight onto the screen at different angles and let me know the results. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @aol.com BYE

Monitor flashes image for split second then goes blank but green LED flashes as well


while the monitor is still powered on, but with the LED flashing, unplug the monitor from the PC. press the power button, and the monitor should go off, now plug the pc back into the monitor. Turn the monitor back on and it should work.

Occasionally this will not work for me, but if I repeat it it normally works

Hope this helps - my problem is intermitant so it may be different to what u guys have
