Hi,

A number of possibilities:
1. the files needed to run Windows are either corrupt or missing;
2. driver error particularly with the video card;
3. virus infection;
4. hardware fault.

A temporary remedy is try to boot to Safe Mode by pressing F8 even before the Windows logo appears. On powerup, keep pressing F8 after the BIOS/CMOS display (POST).

Thereafter pls post back if Windows will boot in Safe Mode and we can work out other ways to restore Windows to normal operation.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Additionally, it may be to your advantage to make ready the following:
    i. Recovery CDs that came with the e-Machine; and/or
    ii. an OEM version of what Windows you are running.

FPD1930 gateway monitor powers up then a small box saying power save mode appears then it just goes black what's wrong with it


Hi. power save mode being displayed by the monitor could be caused by 3 things.
1)VGA cable to monitor is unplugged - check connections at computer and monitor
2)video card has been partially dislodged from motherboard socket. -remove computer cover and ensure video card is firmly pushed down into motherboard socket - do not use excessive force.
3)Monitor does not support video settings on the computer. - to fix on PC, turn on computer and press F8 button a few times during bootup - Windows will go to bootup screen - select SAFE MODE and hit enter. follow onscreen instructions - dont worry about weird colours and huge desktop icons - this is simply to get you going. Right click on desktop, select PROPERTIES>SETTINGS TAB. select screen resolution 1024*768 0r lower, select Apply or Ok. Now restart your machine

Tip

Fixing 'Out of range', 'Format not supported' message


When the video card signal exceeds the frequency allowed for the monitor, the following error message may occur:
Sync out of Range, Out of range, Format not supported
SOLUTION (FROM HP):
To avoid the message, lower the resolution or vertical frequency of the video card.
Reboot the system and use the VGA mode to force the video card driver to lower its resolution. Follow these steps.
1. Shut down and restart the system.
For consumer systems such as HP Pavilion desktop PCs, push the Power button once.
For commercial systems such as HP business desktop PCs, hold down the Power button for five seconds.
2. Immediately after seeing the HP/Compaq logo screen, press F8 at system startup to initiate the bootup menu.
3. Scroll down to highlight Enable VGA Mode , and press ENTER .
4. After Microsoft Windows completes its bootup process, access the Display Properties and select a desired resolution, which is compatible to the connected monitor. Reboot

Need instructions on a hard reset


On your handheld, launch the Prefs application. Under General, select Security.

If the Password box says "Unassigned," tap the box and create a password for your handheld.

Once the password has been set, remove the stylus. Disconnect your handheld from the AC charger, if connected.

On your handheld, hold down the Power button.

While holding down the Power button, use the stylus to press the RESET button on the back of your handheld.

  1. While still holding the Power button, the screen will show the Palm logo and a progress bar. Then the circular Palm Powered logo will appear. Release the power button when you see the Palm Powered logo.

  2. A message will appear warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on your smartphone. Press UP.
  3. You'll see a series of Palm logo screens, then a prompt to tap onscreen targets. The Factory Reset is complete

Pc has power but no response


Connect the video monitor to another working system to see if your monitor is the cause for your dilema.

If the computer logo appears when you first boot up, but it blanks out after the windows logo, then it would be an issue with your installation of windows and may be in need of a reload.

But again, if the monitor is completely black, I would test out the monitor on another machine.

Good Luck

Display flashes DELL logo on power up and then goes black.


Try pressing Fn + Monitor. It sounds like you have it set to pipe video out to an external monitor.

Hope this helps.

Vusys hd19a monitor is always on standby


Cut and paste from another site:

I was called to repair similar incident last week. A Compaq box (don't remember the model) with a 'smart' usb keyboard. By this I mean that the keyboard had a row of what I'll call hot buttons. The client had pushed a button with a moon on it causing the monitor to go into sleep mode. I suspect that whatever key you pushed had the same effect.
After plugging a known good monitor into the faulty box I verified that the box was OK. This left me to think the monitor itself had a problem. Plugged the suspect monitor into a known good machine.. and it worked fine!!!
Set machine and monitor to original configuration and still had no video. Decided that the monitor was too smart for its own good and maybe there was something in the monitors menu. Pushed and held the 'menu' button on the monitor for a few seconds and menu comes forward. Green power led also comes on (surprising me) so I powered up the computer and lo and behold the problem is fixed!
