The problem is in the picture tube of your Monitor. Theres no problem on the hardware of your pc. You can also try to put an outboard video card for you to be sure whats really the problem. If that persit again I suggest you to look for an electronics to fix your monitor. Or if you have lots of money just buy a new monitor for good.

HP dv9000 getting power but dark monitor


It is probably that the inverter or the backlights have packed up

Turn the machine so that a strong light shines on the screen from the side you may then see the windows splash screen in the background.

Other check is to plug another monitor into the port on the laptop if that works then it is down to the inverter

Screen is white when on.....


Try disconnecting your connection to your computer.
If you see a no signal message with a dark background, you have problems with your video card.
If you continue to recv. the white screen, you have input signal problems with the LCD monitor itself.


If you do recv. a no signal message witha dark background, try removing and reseating the video card.

Desktop distortion of a Picture


you have to make sure that the picture you want to use as a background has similar resolution to that you are using in your actual display. for example if you are using 800x600 resolution you should have a picture close to that so it doesnt look distorted.

Monitor freezes up with multicolor wording or distorted images


Sounds to me like a few possible things...

1) Bad connection to the monitor, check the cable connection, if you see or suspect any damage, buy a new monitor or test with a friend's monitor.

2) Video card could be bad, if it has a video card, you could simply buy a new card to see if it will fix the problem. If the video port is attached to the motherboard (meaning onboard video), the motherboard could be damaged.

3) The motherboard could be bad. Sometimes fried motherboards will garble the screen like this on bootup.

The positioning of my desktop's imageis still distorted despite running the easy tune display wizard and my using the auto tune keys on the side of the monitor.


Use the manual methods on your monitor (horizontal and vertical size and position), not the auto tune and see if you can get it to improve.

Try using a different desktop picture as well.

Right click on the desktop where there are no icons, and change the picture. Also, play with Stretch/Center/Tile - stretch will distort a file if it doesn't exactly match your screen settings.

Laptop screen dark


Most laptops have a function key that allows you to use special color coded operations. Usually these are in blue on the keyboard. Look for on that shows a picture of two monitors side by side. One will have a sun in it. Try pressing and holding the function key and then tapping this two monitor key. This option is suppose to allow you to activate a second monitor or a projector for presentations.
