Hi polly ... I assume you are using a CRT monitor ... if you are then the monitor is simply showing its age ... CRT tubes use a electron gun which over time looses its perfromance... there is really nothing you can do except to replace the monitor.... although if your graphics card has a gamma correction setting you might be able to improve the brightness but at a cost of other settings like contrast...

Hp laptop screen black at startup


Hi
I assume the fan is whirring and you have some lights/LED's glowing. If you look around the sides and back of the laptop you will see a blue VGA socket. Plug a spare monitor into this blue socket, philswift.jpg You may need to use a friends monitor to test it out. If it still does not show an image on the monitor, make the laptop change where it is sending the picture. To do this press 'fn' (function) and hold down. Then press one of the 'F' keys that has a picture of monitors on it. In the photo it is 'F4' philswift_0.jpg
Keep pressing 'F4' whilst still holding down 'fn' as this may scroll through many monitor options. Leave 5 seconds between each press to let the action happen. If you still do not get an image then the laptop monitor graphics card has failed. If you do get an image on the spare monitor but not on the laptop screen then you have a failed backlight or inverter. Angle the laptop and catch the light and see if there is a very feint image on the monitor. It looks very dark but you should be able to pick out what you would normally see. If you can see this very dark image it is the backlight. If you cannot it is the inverter or the LCD screen itself. From here on we are into professional level fault finding, you can see here http://www.daileyint.com/hmdpc/lcd.htm . If the laptop was old and slow it may not be worth repairing. If you do wish to go ahead and reapir send it off to a fixed price repair shop like http://www.sefton-computer-repairs.co.uk/screens.htm or myself at www.tecorum.com It takes a few days to repair and send back.
All the best, Phil

Parts of computers and its function


Computer: A machine that processes information and performs computations.
Tower or CPU: The "box" or case that holds the parts that make up a computer: CPU, hard disk drive, floppy drive, memory chips, power supply, interface cards, etc.

CPU: Central Processing Unit, or "brains" of the Computer.
Monitor: An output display device (looks similar to a TV) in a computer system. You see information on the monitor's screen.
Screen: The viewing area on a monitor or the information or image displayed.
Disk Drive: A device that reads data from (input) or records data onto a disk for storage (output).
Hard Drive: The main device that a computer uses to store information. Most computers come with a hard drive, called drive C, located inside the computer case.
CD-ROM: ROM means Read-Only-Memory - you can only "read" information, not save. A CD can store a large amount of data including documents, photographs, software, and music (about 20 songs)
Mouse: A hand-held input device you roll on your desk to point to and select items on your screen. When you move the mouse, the mouse pointer on the screen moves in the same direction.
Speakers: Output device that produces sound and music when connected to the computer. Speakers come in different shapes and may even be in the monitor's case.
Headphones: Output device for listening that is held over the ears by a band worn on the head.
Microphone: Input device in which sound energy is changed into electrical energy for the sending or recording sound (your voice).
Scanner: Input device that reads copy as an image and digitally records the image.

Comes on, but no picture, seems like its stuck in sleep mode


Perhaps the problem lies not with the computer but with the monitor. Is the boot up screen showing like "Windows is starting up..." or do you simply get no image whatsoever? If your screen is blanked out alltogether the monitor may not be connected properly or may not even be functioning at all. Try looking to see if it's connected properly and seeing if it's even getting power... Otherwise I'd replace the monitor.

I have a dell Dimension 2300 and the images are very dark. I don't think it is from the monitor.


Try these steps: 1. Check the monitor settings. Access the On Screen Display (OSD) Menu System. Adjust the contrast and brightness using the control buttons in the monitor.
2. Run the monitor self test. Unplug the video cable from the computer (cable from monitor to the back of the computer). Usually it has a blue or white connector. Turn on the monitor alone. It should display the self test pattern (white, red, green & blue). If the images are dark in the self test, it is a problem with the monitor.
2. Rotate the monitor to face a different direction. This will help in eliminating sunlight glare which can cause poor picture quality.
3. Test your computer using another working monitor. If the problem occurs in a known good monitor, then it is a video card or motherboard (if your video card is integrated) problem.
I hope these options help.

Hi, my monitor is "Samsung SyncMaster 793df". Problem is i can't set right color and contract. how can i solve it?


If the monitor has a consistent tint throughout, try to adjust the color through the OSD (On Screen Display). If this does not resolve the problem, or your monitor seems to be missing a color, disconnect the signal cable from your computer and wait for the No Signal image to appear. If all colors - red, green and blue - are present in the No Signal image, the problem is not with the monitor, but possibly with the video cable or video card. - exert from samsung faq....

If you mean something else, go into a little more detail if you wouldn't mind... Also, another thought has popped to my mind, you do have the drivers for your monitor installed?

Dark screen with dull image in background


You may need to check your desktop image for your monitor and change it to something lighter
The external monitor usually uses your computer's default and not ncessarily the one from your laptop monitor

Without taking it apart myself, it could be some wiring from the laptop to the screen

I had the same problem same model. The image was off center to the right and it couldn't be fixed by the auto-image adjust or the manual adjust.

My solution was really simple, I moved a video player (RealPlayer) onto the monitor and maximized the screen, then pressed auto-adjust once. It worked.

HP desktop monitor problem


hi try this ,,,
  1. Ensure the video cable is connected (and connected to the correct video port).
  2. Turn off the monitor using the monitor's power button and then restart the monitor.
  3. Cycle the power on the monitor as follows:
  4. Turn off the monitor. The power light on the monitor should be off. Leave the computer turned on.
  5. Unplug the power cord.
  6. Wait 5 seconds.
  7. Plug in the power cord.
  8. Press the power button on the monitor to turn on the monitor. One of two things happens:
    1. The image from the computer displays on the monitor and you can use the computer again. This indicates that the monitor was unable to detect that the computer had awakened from suspend mode. Turn the monitor off when it is not being used or disable suspend mode. For some computers, updating the BIOS corrects these types of suspend problems.
    2. The power light on the monitor comes on but the screen displays one of the messages again. The monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer that it can detect and use. Continue using these steps to adjust the Windows display resolution to the Monitor's native (default) resolution
    3. Connect the monitor to another computer that you know is working to determine if the monitor should be serviced or replaced:
      • If the monitor displays an image from another computer, you know that the monitor works. Troubleshoot the video connection and graphics adapter on the computer.
      • If the monitor remain blank when connected to another computer, the monitor signal processing hardware may be bad. The monitor should be repaired or replaced.
      hope it will work for u .. little_angel
