Question about HP Pavilion MX70 17" CRT Monitor

1 Answer

Having the same problem as above. There is a little blue box popping up all over the screen and it says, "please check pc display settings". but I am unable to do this because all that will show on the screen is that. I have unplugged it from the outlet and from the back of the pc. I have even shut the pc off the hard way in hopes to be able to restart it in safe mode, but can't see anything on the screen but what I have described above. I have held the plus sign and turned it on to reset it, and all i get is what i have described above. What can I do now?? please help!!

Press your computer's ON/OFF button, and hold it in until your computer shuts down.
Restart your computer, and repeatedly press F8, to enter "Safe Mode".

Reset your video-adapter to 800 by 600 at 60 Hertz.
Shutdown, and restart.

Then, you can try to increase the resolution to 1024 by 768, and try to change the refresh-rate.

Toshiba laptop has black screen WITH BLUE password box how do i get past the box to get my laptop back/i've tried tons of different f keys and even took out the battery please help


If you did not set a password, first try by simply hitting enter (no words or characters in the box). If this does not work, restart the computer and press F11 or F12 to enter set up (only one or the other will bring you into setup). Once in setup, find where to set\change password. For "new" leave blank, and press enter. Delete anything that may be in this box. Do the same for the next box(es) for "re-enter" password; leaving the box blank and pressing enter. At the very end (right) of the screen, it should give a list of exit options (after selecting "reset" or "save" password; select "save changes and exit" option. The computer should restart automatically and bring you to either 1. The "blue" password screen, for which you will press enter. 2. The operating system Desktop, i.e. Windows etc. where all your icons and apps are displayed. If thus does not work, you need to reset the computer to its default (factory settings) which can be done following the same steps, and finding this option in the menus provided. I do not know what OS you have, but if it is Windows then the above is where to go.

After starting the computer the screen is black and only displays digital analog on screen and the blue light is flashing. It then displays a box say "check signal digital analog." please help me. Thanx.


This blue light flashing means there is power to monitor bu NO video signal. No Analog or digital Video . analog is the regular plug for PC to Monitor, the other is HDMI digital or other digital. Check signal digital/analog means again: No video signal from PC detected.

I minamized a window, and now I can't get rid of it.


assuming that u r a professional, check the size of virtual memory..try increasing..
unload some unnecessary software..
do a through virus scan using a licensed and updated antivirus (i prefer avg/kaspersky)..

probably ur ram/hdd is faulty or small in size..replace with a standby n see..
also check for defective capacitors on the main/mother board..
reinstall os..

the above often take place with some error message(s)/blue screen..
but if there's no such displaying, esp if hangs/stops/power off during installation, it may b caused by the main/mother board or even the battery..
..contact ur system admin/vendor....

Hp F 2105 MONITOR volume and sleep problem


this is not HP.com sorry, its a BULLsession blog, mostly guessing
QUESTION TO YOU.
no computer stated, 10000s exist, 1981 to now, endlessl....
we get you have a display connected to what>? who knows.
I hate guessing
but is display connected to a desk top PC?
that it.
so if you barrow and other display does it work ok?
it has 2 cable (not power) one is DVI other is VGA
which one are you using.

ok i see your confusiong
yes, the monitor has its one menu's and the bad designers
dont tell you that, all pop up windows need to say who is talking to you in this case "F2105" is not in the window.
geeks design it and this is what you get.
even windows 10 does this inane acts,, it pops up
and forget to say , I'm W10, only the blue color dark is the clue)
so dont feel bad, its the lame geek disease there.
what does this mean
that you need o learn the buttons on your monitor
one is to clear those screens its in the manual.
best is dont use those buttons. if possible. on side of monitor
the monitor has its own tiny computer brain that is helping you.
avoid it.

the button on most monitors (mine has 5)
menu button,. press one to get menu press again to exit
some have an exit button push it.
lost your manuals>? hp.com has them, ask.


http://support.hp.com/us-en


your monitor has speakers, those need to be connected. to the PC.

the screen box is called, clear it now using manuals above.

Trouble with video graphics


Do you mean that the icons look very large and colours are a bit harsh? if so it could be that the screen resolution is set to low.

Try this...


Right click on the desktop, and choose 'properties' from the list

a new dialog box will appear called 'display properties'

along the top is a series of tabs, the last one is called 'settings'

click on this and you will then see details of your screen resoulution.

Halfway is a slide bar called screen resoultion
for example..

less -------|------- more

move the slider untill the numbers change to 1024 by 768 pixels

to the right is another box called colour quality - change this to 'highest (32bit)

click apply

click ok

the screen will briefly go black then you will see the desktop, you will get a confirmation box asking along the lines of 'do you wish to keep these settings' click yes to this

have a play with the desktop, open some windows and see if they are now fully visable to you without having to scroll.

You can go back and change your resoultion anytime you want, by following the above. But take note, some monitors will not display all the resoultions in the list, you will get a message to say if it is or not. Just play with the settings untill your happy.

Hope this helps
Regards
