Unplug monitor power cord wait for 5 minutes then turn computer off and re hook up monitor and computer if the moniter does not come on then yo have a defective video card, but you can test it with another monitor to be sure. normally if the monitor was bad it would say no signal.

My compaq fs7600 monitor wont turn on


Hook a spare monitor to the computer, if no change! the Video Graphics Card is suspect usually built into the motherboard. But if spare shows picture, the problem lies in the HP monitor, as a last resort change the video cord from the computer to the monitor "if possible" to rule out something simple.

Monitor power light blinks, then goes out. PC screen goes black.


Unplugging the power cord repeatedly is not a good idea! I hope this helps: 1- After you get a picture, go to "Device manager" (Click on Start-Programs-settings-device manager) and make sure that there is not question or an exclamation mark next to Monitors. If that is the case you might need to reinstall the driver! 2- Make sure that your video card is not faulty by hooking up a different monitor and see if it is working ok. If you still have the same problem, then you need to replace the video card. 3- Check all cables and power cords and make sure that there's good connectivity on all ends (before powering up the machine) and that there are no nicks or cuts. If possible try replacing the monitor's data cable as well. Good luck

Tower turns on fan runs lights on BUT NOTHING >>>>>>>


If the CD drive door won't open, odds are that at least you know the drive is without power. Have you had the case opened up at all? With what you've described here your computer needs the tender, loving care of a technician.

Monitor going to sleep


You most likely have a hardware failure.

Your video card or on-board video in the computer is probably dead.

Turns on but no boot


I had this happen sometimes after a windows update/reboot.
If the computer is on, hold down the power button until it cuts off.
Unplug the power cord. Wait for a couple of minutes.
Plug the cord back in, and turn on system.
