Your computer can be connected with two display and make both of them work at the same time, but its not possible to run different contents at the same time. Both will have the same content.

Disk boot failure

Sounds like a hard disk drive problem. If you can open up the case then remove the cables to the hard disk, and re-connect them again firmly. you can also use different hdd port on the board.

Try the display on a different PC. The on board video may be defective, if so you will need to buy a new video card. Check to see what type you need. Good luck. I hope this helps...Have a good day.

I'm having display issues on hp slimline s3120n w/Vista. When the PC boots up, the monitor momentarily lights up, then goes into standby mode. I attempted resetting the BIOS following the steps on HPs...

its ok just POST TO HP PC or HP Desktop, with tag data.
for sure fixya does not have all 10,000 HP PC's listed nor will it ever.
H3LL even HP dont. (shock)
a desktop PC, (easy to fix , them all) no magic and ATX spec.
standards in play.
why not do the tests in the correct order.?
and do not put other HDD os in to your box, or the reverse.
that will not work.
first off the screen is black.
so you go in to BIOS, does it work and stay working there.??
that is first no the HDD, we play with OS later.
make the screen work first
see that VGA jack on rear of PC
try a different screen see if you can get to BIOS and hold there for say 5minutes, or more?
if that fails ?
this is an Emachine, with no video card, (or was added later,did you look>)
all Emachines, if you add at Video card, you must turn off the on MOBO GPU chip 6150LE
or it will get very confused. (which to use)
only you know if rear side, has x2 ,15pin VGA ports on the rear
if only one there, then its lock box stock, ORIGIONAL.
it only has 1 PCI-express 16x slot for added VGAG card.
if present remove it, and use the normal JACK
the goal is to get one of the 2 VGA jacks to work
that take owning 2 monitors, lacking a second, barrow one.
BIOS work now?

BIOS hot keys (F1, F9,f10, esc, delete key)
the book on your machine tells you which hot keys work on your PC. and must be known by you or diagnosis goes to hair pulling.

not yours but will look same with your exact model
try to know there are many sub models on all HP systems.

My computer turns on but my monitor screen stays blank my key board lights dont come onim wondering if this is my harddrive because it doesnt make any noise when i turn it on

Its highly unlikely that its the hard drive as a computer will still show a post or splash screen without a hard drive being installed.
Is the computer making any beeping sounds?

Hp s3120n slim line freezing up

Sounds like a video issue. What OS is on the machine? Try updating the video card drivers. If the OS is Windows 2000 or older, update your version of DirectX as well.
If that doesnt work, check system resources. Low memory, and low hard drive space can be a cause.
If all else fails, replace the mouse. Mice are very inexpensive now. Keep us posted.
