Sounds like connections problem. Check for bent pins or insertion depth.

Got struck by lightning via the modem which was destroyed. The port that accepts the ethernet cable stays on as soon as the computer is plugged in. Power comes on but no input to the monitor.


The modem might have been obviously destroyed but so is the rest of the computer. The connection that you are talking about is the NIC and it is showing signs that it was damaged by the surge also. That means all the delicate electronic parts in the computer are toast. Time for a new computer.

The computer should beep ONCE when starting-up.
More than one BEEP implies either that the video-card is not responding, or that it is not fully "seated" in its slot.

Try a different video-card in your desktop.

No Monitor signal and no ethernet light on modem


please test the power source that the computer is plugged into and confirm it is working with a lamp or something.
If power source is confirmed working and the computer is plugged in and it is turned on and there is still no signal to the monitor and the ethernet lights are not on when the cable is plugged into it. Also check that all cables from the monitor to the computer are connected properly and secure. if the above has been done and still no signal then there are some Possible Causes
1. Mother Board failure (video card on motherboard is defective)
2. Monitor Failure (computer is sending video signal but monitor can not process it)
3. Video Card failure (if the video card is not designed into the motherboard)

Troubleshooting and repair
See if you can get access to another monitor to test the computer with to see if it sends he video signal ok to that monitor. If you can not get access to one then the only option is to get a video card and either you can install it yourself, or have it installed at a repair station.
If you purchase the card and install it yourself most stores will let you return the cards if they do not work or they are not usable. If you do go that route just make sure to ask about return policies prior to trying it.

I would really consider replacing the video card first you can get them from 30.00 and up and there is ony a few screw to remove to install them. Most of the video card manufactures also have tech support for helping people with the installations of the cards.

I would not worry about the lights on the modem or network card until the monitor issue is resolved so you can then see if it is indeed making a connection to the internet.

What does blinking green light mean on power button of Xerox monitor? The screen no longer comes on.


Could be 1 of 2 things - Either the computer is not sending a signal to the monitor or the monitor is not responding to the signal. Try plugging another monitor into the computer, if it comes on then the monitor needs repair

Computer monitor comes on for 1 seconds, flashes "analog power save mode" and then goes black.


Most monitors will say "Power save mode" when they can tell through residual voltage that the signal lead is plugged into a machine, but there's no picture being transmitted. The four states of a monitor are:

* Off entirely.
* Switched on, plugged into a computer but no video signal being received - usually displays "analog power save mode" or "digital power save mode" for a few seconds, then blanks. Comes back to life the moment a video signal is received. This state is the default in full power saving mode.
* Switched on, not plugged into a computer. Some monitors don't display anything, some go into power saving mode, some fly "CHECK SIGNAL CABLE" or a similar message around the screen. Picture is restored when the signal cable is plugged back into the computer
* On fully, receiving an image, and displaying.

Hope this helps.
