Question about Compaq Presario 7478 PC Desktop

2 Answers

The monitor on my Presario 7478 comes on, but has b/w "blocks" and other strange figures/lines. The Windows logo displays, faintly, for about 30 seconds. Sometimes, after several minutes, I get a message "It is now safe to turn off your computer" Monitor works fine on another system and different monitor does same thing. Is it my video card?

I have it connects to my compaq hp presario f700 laptop and there are faint lines moving in the background of my display. SO i connected it to my Compaq presario CQ60 Laptop and the lines were gone. How do...


you need to adjust the screen refresh rate.

right click on the desktop, then select "properties" then the "settings" tab for XP or "personalize" then "display settings" for vista/7. next, select "advanced" for xp or "advanced properties" for vista/7". finally, select the "monitor" tab and try other refresh rates until you find the one that eliminates the lines.

if this does not fix it, then you may need a new monitor cable.

Display very faint. external monitor no display.


A very faint laptop display is the result of a burned out CCFL light in your LCD panel. It is a mostly non-replaceable part. (very difficult repair). To use an external monitor right click on your desktop then go to the settings tab and change your display properties to dual display mode.

No display/monitor problem? When I turn on my Toshiba Satellite pro L300, I can see the Toshiba logo, bios menu, windows loading logo etc, then when it loads my desktop, nothing! No display, no graphics...


When you press power button press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode.
Then go to display proeprty and set screen rsolution to 1024*768 then apply.
Then check.

Screen issue


Boot to Safe-Mode by pressing the "F8" key several times when you first see the windows logo screen. Answer "yes" to enter safe mode. "Right click" on "My Computer", select "Manage", then "Device Manager". Expand "Display Adapter" by clicking on the "+ sign" on the left side of Display Adapters. Highlight the Adapter listed under the Display Adapter line by "left clicking" on it. Then press the "right mouse button" and select "uninstall" to uninstall the display adapter. Now reboot you system (not safe mode) and see if it works. The display text may be very large now. If it works, you need to find your drivers cd that came with the computer and install the video driver using the above procedure but selecting "update driver" instead of "uninstall"

Dell 410XPs + Dell 3007WFP monitor issues


Vinod,
That's quite strange as during system startup you should see the Dell POST logo as at that point the card is only running at VGA, and the monitor will support display at this resolution. If you connect with a normal single DVI cable the monitor should display at 1280x800 also.
Have you tried this? Also have you had this monitor working on another computer at all? What happens if you power up the 3007 with no video cable connected? It should cycle through the pixel test screens. If you are not getting that, and you are not getting the pre POST logo during powerup i suspect that it is a screen failure.

Logon


Can you describe the issue ion more detail?
Do you see a startup screen with the Windows Logo? Does the logon screen come up? Does the computer get out of the BIOS startup?
