Hi:
Having the 1,2,3 lights on means that the computer is booting up well, but waiting on the video to initialize. You should open the case and make sure that the video card is properly seated in its socket.If it is, then it would still be the most likely suspect to cause your problem.

How do I enter setup?


Setup is usually entered by pressing the delete button or F2 (or F1 .. it depends on your computer..) during the boot-up process.

However, as you say there's absolutely nothing on your monitor which you know works, suggests that the fault lies elsewhere. If there's nothing at all on your monitor it may be a failed video card/chip.

I take it that your computer actually powers up even though you can see nothing on the monitor?

If you can, try another video card in your computer. If the monitor then works, you know it is the old video card/chip at fault.

If, after trying a replacement video card and there's still nothing on the monitor, you'll have to suspect a motherboard fault.

You should set your Windows display profile to be your monitor profile. How accurate your "canned" HP monitor profile will be is debatable, but it's still better than nothing. Ideally, you should create your own custom monitor profile using a hardware monitor calibrator.

If the monitor power light is on or flashing, but nothing displays, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor needs replaced.

Dell monitor blank. nothing appears on screen. light is blinking by minitor power button, but nothing at all on screen. I hooked up to my laptop, still nothing. Checked power/ tried new power cable. No...


Make sure you set up your laptop to display to a second screen. Depending on your Operating system, go to your display properties and go to the settings tab. Then click on the second monitor and enable it.

My monitor works fine for 0.5 sec every time I turn on my PC and then nothing


sound like the monitor is gone.
if it is still in Warranty, you can call Samsung.
if it is out of warranty, take it to any computer repair shop. (cost may be prohibitive.)
the last option is get a mew one.
