Hi! I understand that you have a blank screen. If the system starts up, then most likely your keyboard and mouse lights up, right? And most likely your Desktop CPU tower lights up as well, correct? Then we will analyze why your screen is blank. If the conditions that I have stated are all true, check the monitor. Is it properly connected to the Desktop itself? Is the monitor have lights on it, meaning to say is it turned on? Because there is a separate power button for the monitor. I believe you are using a different brand of monitor, is that right? Then you must make sure that everything is connected properly. You might be able to login to windows but you just don't see the screen. I advise you to shut down everything. Re-check the connections including the monitor, then turn on the desktop. Hope this help...

This may happen due to several reasons. First, check if the power supply line to the monitor is loose at any of the two ends. If yes, tighten it. As a simple measure, keep that blank screen and tighten the codes to see if it works. If that is not the case, switch off your system and UNPLUG it. Then open up your CPU and clean all those dusts present there. Sometimes this problem can occur due to moisture present there. So wipe everything with dry cloth. CAUTION: DO NOT USE COTTON. USE ONLY A DRY CLOTH. Before closing down the CPU, take out the RAM(s), wipe it's tip with CLEAN COTTON slightly dipped in spirit (After Shave Lotion will do). Then put back the RAM(s) in position. This is not only to clean it, but also to make it a bit more seated. Now start up your system to check if it is OK. If none of this works, try re-installing the OS. This is a last measure and it can fix your problem, mostly.

Sounds like a corrupted OS install. Could be caused by a number of things like: virus, failing Hard Drive, system lost power while doing an update, etc. Very hard to diagnose such a problem without being in front of it.

The monitor goes blank after a few min, it comes


Are you sure that your computer isn't just going into power saving mode? Not sure what operating system you have but go into the screen savers tab or video properties and find out how your system is set up for power saving It may be starting before your screen saver does so the monitor would just go black.

Monitor shows a image uo until sign on screen then goes blank


Does it go blank before you signon, or when you sign on? If before boot to SAFE MODE and check the video display settings.. you man have settings your monitor can't understand.
If that doesn't work and you get to input your signon and then it goes blank you most likly have a virus or malware.
Log into safe mode, and use SYSTEM RESTORE to a time before you stated having the problem.
Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore
