When you start your computer right after the bios gets done testing the memory hit shift f5 or shift f8 to enter safe mode. From there you can reset your video setting in xp from the display control panel in control panel. I recommend setting it to a low resolution based upon this problem sounds like the monitor is not configured for the resolution it is currently trying to use.

Hi,

A number of possibilities:
1. the files needed to run Windows are either corrupt or missing;
2. driver error particularly with the video card;
3. virus infection;
4. hardware fault.

A temporary remedy is try to boot to Safe Mode by pressing F8 even before the Windows logo appears. On powerup, keep pressing F8 after the BIOS/CMOS display (POST).

Thereafter pls post back if Windows will boot in Safe Mode and we can work out other ways to restore Windows to normal operation.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi.
It is best to test your monitor on another computer. If it does not work on another then the Monitor is definitely the source of the problem. If your monitor works on another then the problem could be your video card or that your resolution is beyond the capability of your monitor. To test this, when you restart the computer if you do not see the BIOS screen or even the windows logo screen then it is the video card, but if you do and this problem occurs when you are in windows then your screen resolution is the problem. You could also try using a different monitor on your computer to check those settings.

Pc has power but no response


Connect the video monitor to another working system to see if your monitor is the cause for your dilema.

If the computer logo appears when you first boot up, but it blanks out after the windows logo, then it would be an issue with your installation of windows and may be in need of a reload.

But again, if the monitor is completely black, I would test out the monitor on another machine.

Good Luck

Monitor goes blank after seeing XP during boot up.


did u replace the video card with the same kind of model ? i guess yes ... when system starts hit the f8 key and than go in to safe mode ... mouse wont work so use arrow on the keyboard .. and in the safe mode just log in to admin account if available or login to ur account and see if that still happens .. and if it doesnt ... remove the drivers for the graphic card from add and remove programs and restart the system and go in the normal mode and than install the drivers again ... and if the display disappears in the safe mode or u have install a different graphic card than ... reseat the memory cards and that should resolve the issue .... if that doesnt work out when the system starts hit f1 and stay on the BIOS screen for 30 mins if the system doesnt loose display than u need to reinstall OS ... that will surely work out ... the resolutions given above if u follow them correctly u will have a working system in no time

Video card not working, monitor goes off


     In the bios there could be setting to disable your onboard video. Since the output was broken, see if there is an option to disable the onboard setting. If you do this and you are still having problems, I would go ahead and start in safe mode, then lower your resulution to the lowest settings till you can get the video drivers loaded for the new card that you have just bought.

Monitor doesn't work


Sounds like a bad video adapter. I'm assuming your emachines has an integrated video adapter. Put in a video card (with the power plug pulled out! Touch the bare metal frame of the computer with your hand before inserting the video card into the agp or pci slot Don't touch the motherboard). If you get video, you may or may not need to install drivers after that. XP has a lot of video drivers, but lacks quite a few of them, too.

The monitor setting in windows maybe incorrect. When booting up before you get the windows logo start hitting F8 and then choose safe mode. If your monitor works in windows there then check the monitors settings. You may have a driver issue or a settings issue when in normal windows mode.

NO SIGNAL What do I do?


These messages are normal when the computer truly goes into suspend mode or loses the video signal (such as when the computer is suddenly turned off).
If the monitor displays any of these messages when the computer should be displaying video , do the following items until an image from the computer appears:

1.
Ensure the computer is really sending a video signal. To bring the computer out of suspend mode: move the mouse, press the spacebar, and press the suspend button on the keyboard twice (the suspend button has an icon that looks like a quarter moon).
2.
Ensure the video cable is connected (and connected to the correct video port).
3.
If you are trying to view video from a set-top box, DVD player or similar device, use its menu system to set the proper video output channel so that it matches the video connection are using. For example, if the monitor is connected to a satellite receiver via a second HDMI connection on the back of the receiver, select HDMI-2 (or similar) using the remote control for the receiver.
4.
Turn off the monitor using the monitor's power button and then restart the monitor.
5.
Cycle the power on the monitor as follows:
1.
Turn off the monitor. The power light on the monitor should be off. Leave the computer turned on.
2.
Unplug the power cord.
3.
Wait 5 seconds.
4.
Plug in the power cord.
5.
Press the power button on the monitor to turn on the monitor.
One of two things happens:
1.
The image from the computer displays on the monitor and you can use the computer again. This indicates that the monitor was unable to detect that the computer had awakened from suspend mode. Turn the monitor off when it is not being used or disable suspend mode. For some computers, updating the BIOS corrects these types of suspend problems.
2.
The power light on the monitor comes on but the screen displays one of the messages again. The monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer that it can detect and use. Continue using these steps to adjust the Windows display resolution to the Monitor's native (default) resolution.
6.
Adjust the Windows display resolution to a setting that is compatible with the monitor:
NOTE: The native resolution setting for your model of monitor can be found in the Monitor User Guide, the monitor's product packaging, and product specifications.
1.
Restart the computer and press F8 repeatedly after the first logo screen.
2.
Select Safe Mode .
3.
Windows should open showing a Windows desktop with lower resolution and fewer colors.
4.
In Windows Vista, click Start , Control Panel , and click Adjust Screen Resolution in Appearance and Personalization.
In Windows XP, click Start , Settings , Control Panel and then double-click the Display icon and select the Settings tab.
5.
Move the slider bar until the native resolution for the monitor is set, click OK and restart the computer.
6.
If the native resolution is not available from the slider bar, click Advanced Settings , click List All Modes (from the Adapter tab), select the resolution, and click OK .
If the native resolution setting is not available as a selection in Windows, you can temporarily use 1024 x 768 to complete these steps. However, you should update the graphics driver on the computer. Updating the graphics driver can provide more display resolutions to Windows; possibly including the native display resolution for the monitor.
*
Check for nVidia video driver updates at nVidia Home Page (in English).
*
Check for ATI video driver updates at ATI Home Page (in English).
*
Check for S3 video driver updates at S3 Graphics Home Page (in English).
*
Check for Intel video support and downloads, Intel Downloads (in English).
*
If you own an HP or Compaq computer, HP hosts video drivers and some video driver updates at the HP Software and Drivers site (in English)
7.
Connect the monitor to another computer that you know is working to determine if the monitor should be serviced or replaced:
*
If the monitor displays an image from another computer, you know that the monitor works. Troubleshoot the video connection and graphics adapter on the computer.
*
If the monitor remain blank when connected to another computer, the monitor signal processing hardware may be bad. The monitor should be repaired or replaced.
