Hi. If you are using Windows XP (most common OS right now), right-click on any empty space on your desktop and select "Properties" then click "Screen Saver" tab, click "Power" button, "Power Schemes" will pop-up, on "Turn off monitor" option, increase the time or select "Never" from drop-down list to set your monitor to always on.

If you are not using XP, settings are the same for most Windows OS, just different ways to access display properties. So if you manage to open display properties, you can navigate to power options and change your power settings.

Brand new lenovo g550 laptop when switched on for the first time didn't display anything on the screen. What's the solution to that? Please help. The processor is running but totally nothing is...

If you have a seperate monitor, turn the laptop off and plug in the monitor to the VGA out on the laptop (somewere on the side of the laptop will be this output). The reason for this is it will make the next steps easier.

Turn the laptop on, you will hopefully get a display from the other monitor. If not you can still proceed, but it will be in the "dark". On the laptop somewere around the Ctrl key, you should find an fn key. If you look at the laptop keyboard you will see small symbols in the same color as this key (usually blue or grey). Look for one with monitors on it, Levnovo's website says that it is the F7 key. Pressing and hold down the fn key, now press the F7 key that has the monitors on it. This should switch between onboard and external and both. release the key and see if either monitor displays. Since laptops alter in the way this key works, you may have to press the F7 key more than once to get the display to switch the display.

More information on this procedure can be found on Lenovo's website:

I hope this is of some help to you.

I have a em350 but screen broke so have been using a monitor and it was fine but now it wont work on it so need to be able to restart it without access to start menu etc. maybe safe mode. once prob solved...

You might know this already, but here goes:
The auxiliary monitor settings are set by pressing the Fn key (usually at the bottom left of the keyboard) another (one of the F keys at the top of the keyboard). That F key may have a small icon of monitors with a slash between them. While booting try pressing the Fn key continuously while pressing the F key several times. It will cycle through different settingss of "only LCD" / "Only external monitor"/ both monitors/.... keep doing that it may restore your setting.

Look for the Fn Button bottom left of the keyboard. Hold this button down then press F5. You should see the screen flash up.

To access EDIT MODE:

2. When prompted, enter the access code “9” and
then press the ENTER key.

Altering a Recipe
Most NGC (Tornado) oven models contain 128
unique recipes. The display shows two (2) pages each
with eight (8) recipe groups. Each recipe group contains
eight (8) recipes. See Figures 11 and 12.
To alter a recipe:
1. Enter the EDIT MODE (see page 16).
2. Enter the access code “9” and set the CCSP. The
screen displays the first set of eight (8) recipe
groups. To access the second set of eight (8)
recipe groups, press either the UP or DOWN key.
3. Select the recipe group that contains the individual
recipe you wish to alter. Select the recipe you
wish to alter by pressing the soft key corresponding
to the recipe item. Figures 11 and 12.
4. Use the UP and DOWN keys to navigate through
the recipe settings. Use the keypad and ENTER key
to alter any of the following three (3) parameters
(see Figure 13):
a. Cook time
Total duration of the cook cycle. Enter the
desired time and press ENTER.
b. IR element temperature (IRSP)
The temperature the lower radiant element
will maintain during the entire cook cycle.
Valid temperatures are between 500ºF (260ºC)
and 1150ºF (621ºC).
c. Events 1…6
Use the keypad and ENTER key to enter values
for % TIME, % AIR, and % WAV.
o Sum of % TIME for all events must = 100.
The operating system will not allow a
combination of events not equal to 100%.
o The % AIR parameter is valid between 10
and 100%.
o The % WAV (microwave) parameter is valid
between 0 and 100%.
5. After making changes, test the recipe by
pressing the TEST soft key. Once the oven has
warmed to the CC set point, press the TEST
soft key again to begin the test cook.
6. Once satisfied with the recipe, press SAVE to
permanently store changes.
7. Press the BACK key until exited from EDIT MODE.

Detecting array...

does any other monitor work? if not than the video card may be bad. or the settings in the bios may be altered. first try this...unplug the tower, open the case and remove the bios/real time clock (RTC) button cell battery, press the power button to dissipate any voltage that is stored. Re-install the battery, plug tower in and power up. If anything was changed in bios everything would go back to default settings and you would have to enter set up to update date/time etc.

Monitor Black, Green Power Light Flashes Monitor is 4 yrs. old

Assuming you've already checked your driver and system settings, tried a different monitor, and checked the cable and connector pins, this would almost certainly be a problem with the power or signal circuit board inside the monitor.
