Time Required: Testing a monitor could take from a few minutes to much longer depending on the cause of the problem Here's How:

  1. Check to make sure your monitor is on! Some monitors have more than one power button or switch - check to make sure they're all switched on.
  2. Check for disconnected monitor power cable connections. Your monitor might be working fine and your only problem may be a loose or unplugged monitor power cable. Note: A disconnected monitor power cable could be the cause of your problem if your monitor's power light is completely off.
  3. Check for disconnected monitor data cable connections. Again, your monitor might be turning on without a problem but no information can get to it because the cable that connects your monitor to your computer is disconnected or loose.
    Note: A disconnected monitor data cable could be the cause of your problem if your monitor's power light is on but is amber or yellow instead of green.
  4. Turn the monitor's brightness and contrast settings completely up. Your monitor might be showing information but you just can't see it because these display settings are too dark.
    Note: Most monitors today have a single onscreen interface for all settings, including brightness and contrast. If it turns out that your monitor isn't working at all then you'll likely not have access to this interface. An older monitor might have manual knobs for adjusting these settings.
  5. Test that your computer is working correctly by connecting a different monitor that you are certain is working properly to your PC. Your monitor may be working fine but your computer might not be sending information to it.
    • If the new monitor you connected does not show anything either, proceed to Step 6.
    • If the new monitor you connected does show information from your computer, proceed to Step 7.
    Important: When testing with the new monitor, make sure you use the data cable that came with it and not the one from your original monitor.
  6. Determine why your computer isn't sending information to your monitor. Since neither monitor works, you now know that the computer is not sending information to the monitor. In other words, you've proven that your computer is the reason that nothing shows up on your monitor.
    Chances are your original monitor is working fine.
  7. Test your original monitor with a monitor data cable that you know is working. It's possible that the monitor itself is working properly but it can't receive information from the computer because the cable that connects the monitor to the PC is no longer working.
    Note: If possible, test using the data cable from the monitor that you successfully tested with in Step 5. If not, purchase a replacement monitor data cable to test with.
    Note: The data cable on some older monitors are permanently connected to the monitor and are not replaceable. In these cases, you'll have to skip this step and proceed to Step 8.
  8. Replace the monitor.
    WARNING: A computer monitor is not a user serviceable device. In other words - do not open the monitor and attempt to repair it yourself. If you would rather have your dead monitor serviced instead of replaced then please let a professional do it.

I have a zync 909 tablet pc. A problem coming when i start thats display


A Problem Coming when you start that display? Try Viagara or a different Partner. :)

OK, just kidding, I guess you are trying to say either the display does not work or it's giving you an error message that displays.

Be more specific in your question and maybe someone can help find a solution.

My viewsonic vx2025wm 20.1 lcdmonitorgoes green,sometimesyellow,then returns towhite screen


check your cable connection if the color changes.. as normally bad or lose display connection will cause this problem..
but if it turn to total white without any image.. then most probably the LCD monitor is faulty..
but there are some cases when your display card that is giving this funny problem.. if it get too hot.. check your PC display card whether the cooling fan is turning or jam.. this is the main cause the display card get overheat and give you funny display...

Don't know how to turn it on


Check power lead,press the button on the right at the bottom of the screen if a light comes on then it is on. Start PC, light should go green and monitor should give a display. If there is no life at all then the monitor is dead, change it :( If the light is on but starting PC doesn't give a display then check lead from PC, try another monitor with PC and if it works change resolution to something basic like 1026 x 768 @ 60Hz then try the acer again. If another monitor doesn't work your PC has a graphics problem; Check the lead thoroughly, check in bios settings the display is set right, try a new graphics card
