This usually indicates that there is a harddrive failure or problem with BIOS. When the machine is booting up, get into BIOS and check to make sure that it is recognizing the hard disk and that it is configured to use the hard disk as a boot device. If all that appears to be OK, you might want to try booting off of your Windows CD (go back into BIOS and set your CD player as the boot device). When you're booted up, check to see if you can read data from your hard disk. My guess is that you will not be able to, and that would indicate a hard drive failure. Newegg carries them at a very respectable price.

Hi there.

You'll need to adjust the refresh rate. I have recently written a tip on adjusting a monitor's refresh rate. I suggest you give it a read and let me know how it goes.
You can see my tip here:

I just installed a MAG 17 incuh flatscreen monitor to my Dell Dimension 3000. When I turn the PC on, the monitor disploays everything on the desktop,but then goes black. If I turn the monitor on and off,...


I think that you have chosen some settings that are not compatible on it ..resolution too big and probably the refresh rate high ..
first from the monitor settings ..press the auto-settings button ..and let it make the proper choice ..after that ..to eliminate any settings in the video card that might affect it ..boot your computer in safe mode..and remove the video card driver from control panel ...add /remove programs ...and after that run it again from the disk or ..from teh support site if you do not have the disk ..
If you only have the on board driver..and you do not have a disk ..run it from the drivers of the motherboard disk ..This will reset the odd choices on the video card ..and make it work ..to open in safe mode..press F12 on start ..and choose safe mode..(for some computers the button is F9 or F8 )Usually the button is specified when it boots up ..
But ..for to be sure that this is the cause...you have to hear to computer running ..and only the display to be black ...otherwise can be a physical fault..

All the lights come on when I switch on my HP Pavillion dv9600 but the screen is blank.


DO THIS FIRST - Perform a hard reset If a PC suddenly fails to boot properly, you should perform a hard reset as the first procedure.
  1. Disconnect all peripheral devices and remove all USB devices and media cards. You want to test the computer not the accessories!
  2. Disconnect the AC power adapter, remove the battery, and then press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds .
  3. Reconnect the AC power adapter (but do not connect the battery), Press the Power button, Look for glowing LEDs near caps lock and num lock keys, and Listen for sounds of a disk drive and fan turning.
Actions to take after performing hard reset If no error message is displayed:

If a text error message is displayed, see Troubleshooting Error Messages on a Black Screen During Startup or Boot c02076104.jpg

Black Screen with No Error Messages Connect an external monitor c02076105.gif If there is a problem with the LCD display's back light or a corrupted graphics driver, the display may appear blank but the notebook may be displaying information. Attach an external monitor to test the display. If the image displays on the external monitor, there may be a graphics driver conflict. To resolve this, turn on the computer and press f8 key, then select Enable low-resolution video . If the image displays on the LCD display in low resolution, you can download and install the latest drivers for your specific graphics driver. If there is an image on the external monitor but the notebook display remains black, contact HP for technical assistance. Disconnect all peripherals and repeat the hard reset Even though users are instructed to disconnect all peripheral devices from the notebook when doing a hard reset , some devices are often overlooked. c02069237.gif Double-check that all devices are disconnected including: external keyboard and mouse (wired or wireless), USB connected external drives and devices, thumb drives and flash drives, network storage devices, PC card, SD memory cards, express card, eSata connections, firewire or similar devices, printer, scanner, camera, port replicator, or docking station, any CD/DVD from the optical disc drive, and any media from the multi-card reader.B

    Power is on but screen is black


    Hi, you gave too little details & you did not tell us if there is any display of your desktop on the screen...I know how annoying it is but please try another RAM stick. I don't think it's a monitor problem.
    HOWEVER if all parts are OK & still the problem is not solved, you need to replace cable connected to your Hard Disk.
    Please let me know so that we can help you further send your feedback. thanks.

    Laptop monitor goes black


    If you're working on the computer when that happens, it's not probably a power setting. Try to update your BIOS to the most current version at the toshiba support website (support.toshiba.com) & see what happens. Fixes the issue most of the time

    I hope this helps.

    Error code 0122 when trying to play blue ray disk on hdtv through hdmi cable


    Hy guys

    I had this problem earlier on today and after much searching found a solution that worked for me.

    This error message relates to piracy issues. If you are running 2 screens at once (laptop monitor and HD TV) I guess it's seen as an easy way to pirate DVD's, Blu-rays etc.

    Go into your graphics card settings (i think I did this in the end by adusting screen resolution (was hungover, there's probably a quicker way - this gave me access to my ATI graphics card settings). you should be given an option of taking your HD TV as the primary monitor and disabling the built in monitor.

    This should resolve the conflict that caused the 0122 error message - there are no longer 2 monitors, I guess making it harder for the pirates to comoplete their dastardly deeds - aaaarrrr.

    I hope this helps some peeps out - thought I'd return the favour for my own various questions.
