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.

I suspect that the problem is with your PC, and in particular your video card. The fact that your monitor is displaying the logo indicates that the monitor is not receiving a signal from your computer. You may want to try hooking the monitor up to another PC and see if that is the problem. The fact that your monitor turned off and on for a few times also indicated that the signal from the PC video card was sporadic and finally failed leaving you with the monitor logo. Disconnect the PC from the monitor and see if the logo is there. Also check the cable from your video card to your monitor to see if the cable is bad. You may have to borrow a video cable from a friend to test this out.

Could be the resolution too high for the monitor.
Try to press "F8" during the "Starting Windows" message, then select the safe mode or VGA mode.
After logging in check the resolution and if needed reduce it.

Could be also a video driver problem.

Use the same "F8" trick to get to the safe mode and reinstall the video driver.

I hope this will give you some ideas

Doesn't really sound like the monitor is the cause. The video driver sounds like it might be failing on load. You can try starting in safe mode, open device manager and remove the video card from the hardware list (You can also do this with add and remove hardware in the control panel of XP). Restart and let windows install fresh drivers on start up. This may help if the driver installation has been corrupted. Note that you will need the original driver disk if you want the extended options of your video card, otherwise windows will install the generic windows driver which in some cases is no different from the factory driver.

Hope this helps,
Gill

I get a pure white screen when i turn on my dell 1100inspiron


Do you get a logo at start up? If you get a logo at start up your video driver may be corrupt. Pressing F8 before windows starts will let you do a safe start and you will be able to correct it then. If there is no logo or anything, try to get an external monitor to plug into and see if it works. If yes then your LCD cable or the LCD may be bad. If not, then it is deeper. Let me know what you find out. JC

Monitor is not working


Try starting up in safe mode (press F8 just before the Windows logo pops up. If you can see your desktop this time, I would remove and reinstall your video driver.

I think this is an issue with your desktop settings are your display driver. Reboot the notebook, unplug the external monitor. Press the F8 key when you see the Windows logo screen. It will give you a list of choices. Use the the VGA selection. Windows should be normally. Then go to the control panel and check what drivers are trying to load for your notebook. I would suggest to your E-machine website or if you have the cd to reload your video drivers.

I hope this helps you.

Monitor keeps stating "monitor going to sleep" now awhile after booting up. The monitor works fine with other computers and the computer in questioning when in safe mode - yet if tried to boot normally,...


This is probably a video setting issue. In Safe Mode, Windows starts with low resolution and color settings, so the monitor can display them. But when it tries to start normally, Windows is using a video setting the monitor can't handle.

Start the computer and press the F8 key three or four times when the manufacturer's logo screen appears. This should get you to the Windows startup menu screen, and you can pick the option of starting in VGA mode. This will start Windows with video settings any monitor can handle.

Once you have Windows up and running, make sure the video card and monitor types are properly set up. It would also be a good idea to download and install the latest drivers for your video card. You can usually find them at the manufacturer's website.

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.

On Pwr up logo appears then LCD returns to stanby Black screen


I will assume the monitor is staying on during the boot process all the way until Windows loads.
If that is the case, then...
  • Start the computer
  • wait until the initial bios/logo screens for your motherboard go away.
  • Press F8 to get the Windows recovery boot menu
  • If you see the Windows Logo you would normally see then press rest and try again.
  • In the recovery screen, select SAFE MODE
  • Boot into Windows and uninstall your video card.
  • Reboot the computer the normal way through the start menu.
  • When your PC starts back up it should then reinstall the video card, and set itself automatically back to 60khz as default.
Let me know how you go =)

Problem with the acer al1916w


Sounds like the backlight or inverter might need replaced. It's pretty common on LCD monitors. It's best to call a local repair shop to do that unless you know what you're doing.
