Hi,

Often the problem is not really the monitor but the PC. There is not video output from the video card and the monitor in sensing this assumes that the cable is unplug.

The sure way of determining which is at fault is to try and use a different monitor to your PC (as well as the cable). Should problem persist, then it is the PC that would need to be checked.

Should you have verified that it is the PC, suspect would either be the video card and/or the memory sticks. In some instances cleaning with a pencil eraser the little gold pins of either the video card and/or the memory sticks helps.

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.

My scepter flat screen computer moniter keeps flashing on and off. It is hooked in correctly, however, even when the tower is off the screen flashes on, then to standby and then to just off. The whole time...


try to use the menu buttons of the display/screen to reset it to factory defaults and use the auto-adjust option if available. this often resolves common issues specific to the screen itself. it can help help to remove the power cord from the monitor then hold its power button for about 10 seconds to drain any power and test it again using another video cable. you may also want to observe if it flashes when not connected to the video cable and when plugged in to a different power outlet and cord.

Screen went black and a window came accross the screen saying attention entering sleep mode......and then it said no video input...


It sounds like the problem is in your computer, hook a spare monitor to verify, if you have the same problem, it is your tower that needs to be checked out.

My monitor, keeps saying it is going to sleep. VGA says no input signal, as well as DVI. And I know nothing about computers


If there is no output on the screen, check all you cables and connections and ensure they are snug and secure. If there is still a problem, it is possible your video card is to blame. As a diagnostic step, try hooking the monitor up to a different computer. Or hooking up another monitor to your computer. This will help eliminate bad cables and connections. If a different computer works on your monitor, then you most likely have a bad video card. If you monitor still will not work on any computer, then you most likely have a bad monitor.

Monitor shuts off while in use


possibly the video card needs to be reseated or the power to the card is intermittent. Also always check for loose connections at monitor and computer.

Monitor issue


Just sounds like the monitor cable is loose or bad or the input mode on the monitor is set wrong - set it to auto or step through the modes.

Your flat screen monitor should have the same connections as your older model, a VGA connection.

When i hook up my comp the monitor stays black...whats going on?


Try remove your VGA card and reinsert and test. And if the problem persist then test your monitor to the other PCs and if it displays then it could be the card is bad or the monito's resolution was ajusted causing to be uncompatible for your PCs resolution.

How to hook this monitor onto my computer


You would have got a CD with this moniter..
we ahve install that cd..
and its better to check the cables first which would be the
VGA CORD that is blue in colour which connects your moniter with the tower.
We can check the connections with the moniter for the Tower and then install the cd.
