I think rangerguy42 is saying that it blinks when it's got power & is connected to the pc..? In that case it could be the video card in the pc.. Can you connect the monitor to another pc, just to test it? If it fails to work then, maybe the monitor is faulty. The flashing light it usually a sign that there is no video signal from the pc (when the video cable is connected) Ofcourse it also might be a faulty video cable. I have sometimes seen the pins in the end of the cable damaged Eg bent, or broken. Good Luck.

When i turn on my Dell Inspiron 2400 Desktop Computer why won`t it start.


Is the computer plugged in to a known good power source with a known good power cord? Also, make sure the power is fully seated on both ends. When you press the power button are you getting any indicator lights? The power button itself has an LED that will be either solid green, blinking green, solid amber, blinking amber, or off. Do you hear any beeps?

Dell inspiron 530 desktop won't boot, fan is running, no signal on monitor


It sounds like either your monitor or video card inside the computer is bad.

If the monitor is showing the "No Input Signal" message then the video card inside the computer is bad. The monitor is ok otherwise it would not be able to display the No Input Signal message.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the computer is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.



Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Desktop runs but won't boot


Normally if the hard drive is bad you will get some type of message on the screen.

If it sounds like it is running but the screen is blank, then try another monitor. Maybe the monitor is bad. Try another monitor. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and put it on the computer. If the borrowed monitor works, then your old monitor is bad. If the borrowed monitor does the same thing, then your video card is bad.

If it does not seem like it booted up all the way then try the steps below.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoever when you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you was operating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cord is bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the power cord is bad.

Vsonic flat screen monitor need blink codes


hi do you mean you are asking for the blinking codes on your viewsonic pc monitor?. usually lcd monitor for pc has no blinking codes, if your monitor just only a blinking indicator and won't turn on, you must check first the source from your pc if their is a signal to turn on the monitor. if just blinking only then won't turn on you must check the power supply of the monitor usually the main cause is bulging capacitor. just replace it with the same value and rating thanks for consulting the fixya good luck.

My dell gx260 ligth come green if i turn it on but for a few mins time it turn orange why


Do you mean the monitor's power light starts green and then turns orange when you turn it on? Most monitors will go to a power saving mode when they do not get a signal from the computer.

The Dell GX260 has a green power light when on. When the computer is off, the light is off. If it is green and blinking, then the computer is in a power saving mode.

Diagnosis: start with the obvious: is the monitor cable plugged into both the computer and the monitor (if not permanently connected to the monitor)? Are you connected to the active port? (You can add a video graphics card in most desktops. The motherboard video port usually needs to be disabled to use the card ports. If you plug in the monitor cable to the disabled port, it won't work.) Is the monitor set to the correct input? (This applies if the monitor has several ports. In that case, there will be a Source or Input button on the monitor.) Is the computer on? The GX260 has the power button on the front. (Other computers have the power button on the top.) There is also the power supply switch on the back which needs to be on.

Next try a different data cable between the monitor and the computer (if you can). Try a different monitor. If a second monitor works, than the monitor has a damaged main board. If the second monitor doesn't work, then the video graphics adapter has probably failed. Replace the add-on card, if in use, then boot in the safe mode to remove the old graphics driver. Then install the correct driver for the graphics adapter.

Note: the computer and the monitor should both be off when you connect the cables. Then turn on the monitor first and set it to the correct source before turning on the computer.)

I hope this helps.

How to fix aopen F75PS Display Power Light Blinking, Display Won`t come on.


A blinking power light typically means there is no signal from the video card, so check the connections and try another monitor (or plug the monitor into another computer) first to see if the video card is perhaps the real culprit.

It could be your monitor is fine. It simply goes to a cycle when its turned on and does not detect any signal coming from your CPU, it simply goes on standby mode (hence the darker image and orange/blinking light.) have you checked the computer (CPU) part?

Monitor flicks off


If you have switched monitors and the problem persists, I would first look at your cabling, if you did not use the same cable on both monitors then the drivers would be suspect. Go to your video cards site and update the drivers after checking all your cables and connections, also check that the video card is properly seated on the motherboard (if its not integrated onto the motherboard). An easy way to check the monitors, is to plug them into another computer (EG: laptop) and they should have the same problem there, i doubt they will from the symptoms you are having. also try bypassing the UPS and plug the monitor straight into an extension cord or wall.
Remeber, try this in steps, not all at once, so you can tell what works..

Hope this Helps!
