Question about SAMTRON 77V 17" CRT Monitor
While I ran a Knoppix live CD (Unix) on my eMachine, which workd fine for months; suddenly the monitor goes off line, the screen goes black right after booting up into GUI mode.
Have you seen this before?
This is the way how to check what's wrong with your monitors. After you turned it on and the
screen went black, you have to check that if you can see the image on the
screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find
the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the
icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps
inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you
cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter
board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by
yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show
leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have
soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so. Hope this help!! If
anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.

Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287 (or http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic28744.html)
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.
Depending on the program, itll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable.
You could also try a Live Linux like Knoppix Live from here:- http://www.knoppix.net/get.php,
download the Free ISO using a Torrent, burn it to a CD then run that it will load into Ram and then ith all the software in the CD you can examine the hard drive
hope this helps
