  • Prepare to diagnose the computer .
    1. Disconnect all peripheral devices.
    2. Perform a Hard Reset.
    3. Disable the Automatic restart on system failure option.
  • Remove any non-system disc from the computer . During startup, the BIOS checks different devices to locate the Windows operating system. If the boot order is set to check the optical disc drive or the card reader (if the notebook is equipped with a card reader) before it checks the hard drive, and there is a non-system disc in the CD/DVD drive or there is a memory card in the card reader, the boot will fail. This problem can be resolved by setting the BIOS to check the hard drive first.
  • Reseat the memory modules . If you are getting memory errors, most BIOS versions have additional tests that can be run to test the memory. There could be a problem if one of the sticks is defective or loose in the memory slots. To determine what is causing the memory failure, disconnect all electrical power, and then remove and re-insert the memory modules firmly into the slots. Some HP Notebook PCs come with two sticks of memory and have two memory slots. On most notebooks, the memory module compartment is located on the bottom of the case, but the exact position varies by model. On some models, the memory compartment is under the keyboard. See your User Guide for the exact location of memory modules on your notebook.
  • Reset the BIOS to default condition . If you have made changes in the BIOS setting, such as disabling a device or changing the boot order, it could prevent the computer form starting properly. To restore the BIOS to its factory-recommended settings, turn on the computer and press f10 to access BIOS setup, and then press f9 to load the default BIOS configuration.
  • Perform a memory self test . There are different reasons that you may see a memory error. There could be a physical problem or it could be a program error. If the error is a program error, you will most likely see a Windows error message. If there is a physical problem with a memory module, the computer may fail part way through the boot process. Most computers have a built-in memory test to help identify if the memory modules are seated properly and are free of errors. To run the memory test, turn on the computer and press f2 .
    • If the System Diagnostics screen displays, select the Start-up Test to run the system memory test. Press the Esc key once the memory test is complete.
    • If the BIOS Diagnostics screen displays, select Memory Test .
  • Reseat the hard drive . If you get a specific hard drive error message on a black screen indicating the hard drive error, reseat the hard drive. If the computer has been dropped or jarred, or the hard drive has been replaced recently, the drive may not be seated tightly. The hard drive LED should blink if the hard drive has a solid connection in the notebook. Refer to the on-line User's Guide for specifics on locating and removing / replacing a hard drive. HP provides video directions for performing this task for many computer models. Remove and reseat the hard drive firmly into the mounting bracket.
  • Test the hard drive . If you get a hard drive error message, you can test the hard drive. Many computer problems are related to soft failures (or degraded performance) on the hard drive. The HP Hard Drive Self Test will repair soft errors on the hard drive, but it will not report the errors. After the test is complete, restart the computer to see if test repaired the problem you may been experiencing. To run the hard drive test, turn on the computer and press f2 .
    • If the System Diagnostics screen displays, select the Hard Disk Test to run the hard drive test. Allow the Quick and Long Hard Disk Self Tests to run.
    • If the BIOS Diagnostics screen displays, select Primary Hard Disk Self Test . Allow the Quick and Long Hard Disk Self Tests to run.

    The only solution I've been able to find for this is to turn off the computer for a minute or two and reboot, while rebooting, it is important to keep the mouse moving so the arrow on the screen moves. This should provide a temporary fix, I'm unsure about a permanent one.

    SOURCE: Tyris Tyris 17" LCD F179 T701DB monitor image appears for 2 secs

    Tyris Model: F179
    No Power
    Purchased an AsIs non-Working Tyris F179 from Goodwill for $15. Opened the case, found no swollen capacitors. Tested the capacitors on the power board and found C203 680uf 16v and C202 680uf 16v only partly working. Could not find a pair of 680uf caps and since they were in paralell on the same traces I removed both of them and substituted with a single 1500uf 16v capacitor. Next, the video board does have a Novatek chip much like the Novatek chip in the Samsung 710n but look closely at the 5 and 6 legs, they are not being used in the Tyris design so the 5/6 50ohm resistor fix is not needed here. Did find C107 , C16, C50 weak, all 47uf 16v, so i replaced them. Reassembled and now have a great picture again.

    i'm not an expert at anything...x'cept maybe dumpster diving. God Bless

    SOURCE: power supply on 17" acer monitor

    franh, Typical of a lcd/fpd monitor! There is nothing you or hundreds of others can do to repair it all by yourself. I have repaired 3 monitors and helped tutor 2 others on fixya with their monitors. All had same exact symptom as your monitor. I need you to do a simple test for me. With failed Acer monitor near to your Fully Booted PC with a known good desktop being displayed on back-up monitor, quickly swap out the monitor cables from the back of the PC. Keep touching the CTRL key on you keyboarb every 30-50 seconds to keep the PC from sending out sleep mode command to monitor while doing the reconnect of acer to your PC monitor output port. Make sure the Acer also is connected to a live wall outlet/power strip. Turn on the Acer and note what happens. If screen shows a sharp clear image for a second, then goes black, do the following. Get a bright flashlight and shine it on the screen from a distance of 1 or 2 inches and tell me if you can see the desktop display. get back to me with your observations. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@ aol.com.

    Bad transistors, caps, cold solder joints.
    If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
    Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
    Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

    17" Sony SDM-S74 goes blank after 1 hour


    Here is my possibility.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but the fact is you have a very old monitor. My research tells me that it is almost 10 years old.

    The obvious problem and the one most likely is that the power board inside the monitor is going. It is common in LCD monitors of this age. Do yourself a favor and junk it and replace is with a new larger better monitor. They are so much better these days and so much much cheaper.

    You can get a 22 inch wide screen monitor on Walmart.com right now for $104.00 and pick it up at your local Walmart with free shipping. Not advocating Walmart necessarily just pointing out. Recycle your old monitor responsibly and pick up a new one. No matter how cheap it is it will be better than what you have now and your current monitor is not worth a technicians time.

    If you don't have the money for a new one go to your local thrift shop and get a working 17 inch for $20. Good luck.

    Change your video resolution to match the new monitor. Right click in a blank area on your desktop go to properties and change your resolution (in XP). In Vista or Windows 7, after right clicking on your desktop, choose Screen Resolution (about the 3rd one up from the bottom of choices).
