Try connecting the monitor to a different laptop/desktop, to see if your problem "follows" the monitor.

But, it's most-likely that the video-card in your computer is overheating, and quitting. Thus, restarting your computer "resets" the video-card.

Hp vista and monitor hp2509 was working fine. i uninstalled monitor driver but now computer starts fine but monitor goes blank

Monitor drivers are built into windows OS, you can't uninstall the driver unless you went to devise MGR, monitor, and opened proprieties and hit uninstall, and even then when you restart windows, it will auto reinstall the hardware. So what you're saying does not make sense.

If you reboot and noting, try a system restore, if you have a windows disk, then run repair. But like I said, you don't install monitor drivers, DVD rom drivers, these are generic drivers that are made into windows. If you think a monitor has a driver that needs installing, explain how people install windows if they couldn't see the monitor.

Only onboard video and graph cards need drivers to run the video at its intended resolution, but it does not need a driver for the monitor, it's built into windows.

May monitor shuts down and cant get it open even though the cpu is still running. i have to pull the plug and put it back on just to get it started again.

Do you a nvidia video card? If so, go to the Nvidia site and download the latest driver. My HP Desktop was doing the same thing and since I did this I haven't had it to happen again.

The desktop is displayed for @ 2seconds when the monitor is turned on then the screen goes blank. This happens every time the power button is used. I've run the Self-Test mode and the Check Signal Cable...

This may be a common problem with these, I have 2 side by side, both failed in the same way within days of each other even though one is used more than the other. I know its not faulty, as you say, it runs fine for 5 seconds, then goes black, power down & back up, runs fine for another few seconds.. will be searching for a fix for this, as local service co. wants close to what I paid for them new just to look at, and tell me its gonna cost $500 to fix.. probably! my guess its a inverter capacitor, or dry joint, and some sensing circuit is shutting the monitor down. To open, you need to slide a hard thin plastic wedge along the edge, with a slight pry it opens up at the tags, there are 4 tags across the top, and 3 down each side, if careful, you can oen without damaging plastic case edges. be careful of the inverter leads and PCB (under the shiny aluminium side plate), they can hold a fair belt of DC even after monitor is off for awhile.

Emachine T2385 Won't Boot in Normal Mode past Windows XP Screen

The first thing I would check is your video card (usually driver) problem. Start windows in safemode with networking. If this problem has occured after updating the video card driver you may try rolling back the driver to a previous version, otherwise try

Once windows starts you'll want to go to the start menu and find and click run. In the text box enter the command "devmgmt.msc" and hit enter and the device manager should appear. Look for display adapters and left click the + and you should see your video card. Right click the video card and select properties from the drop down menu. Select thr driver tab. Now if the problem had occured after updating the driver, choose rollback the driver from the menu. If not try selecting the update driver option. After updating/rolling back the driver you'll want to try restarting in normal mode.

If it still won't start in normal mode you can try troubleshooting the video card under the general tab in properties, though to be honest I've found this rarely usefull but it might help you. Otherwise you'll want to make sure that your videocard is enabled in BIOS. A quick totorial of BIOS if needed,1126.html.

Otherwise it's likely a physical issue with the graphics card. Since you've tried reseating the card already it may be that the card is damaged and will need to be replaced.

this sounds like there is an internal short in the wiring cables that connect to the monitor.

Try replacing the cables if you can, if not contact Best Buy's geek squad and they can take your monitor overnight in most cases and have it back to you by the next day working perfectly fine and for little to no charge.

hope this helps :)
