Try unplugging it from the electrical outlet for about 25 seconds. Then plug it back in and go to your settings if the power button turns the monitor back on if it does not work try it on another working computer. Sometimes this happens when the settings are two high of resolution when your graphics card cannot handle it. Hopefully the issue is not the monitor going bad. Thanks for using FixYa!

Hi kellbro1,
You're problem is not in the settings but in fact there's a three major parts involved for fault. First is your back light, second is your inverter board, third is your power supply. I've suspect that you're inverter board or its power supply caused this problem. If you have necessary tools and test instrument, know safety precaution in basic troubleshooting you may isolate the trouble. You have to test the inverter board by loading a two car bulb in series with it. Constant glow of light means you have a good inverter board and the backlight(lamp) need to be replaced, irregular glow of light means that you have a faulty inverter board.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

During setup, got a "INput not supported" message

Reboot the computer and enter into Safe Mode through pressing F8 repeatedly on the keyboard.

If Windows will not come up, then you have to access the system through system restore.

In windows xp, it's c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

In windows vista, it's c:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

This is done through Safe Mode with command prompt or command prompt; depending on the operating system.

    19'' Flatscreen Envision monitor, goes to sleep

    it does not sound like it is a computer problem, but a monitor problem. you need a new monitor because last i checked, those monitors either cannot be repaired or the cost exceeds that of a new monitor. sorry.

    Unable to install HPw2007 Monitor

    I would like to inform you that if you are using HP PC, then there is no need to install the drivers from the disc provided with the monitor. HP PC already has in-built monitor drivers. The default account in Vista from first boot is an admin account, monitor should plug and play and the correct INF file will install for the monitor.
    Still, if you want to install the drivers from the disc provided with the monitor, then please follow the steps given below:
    == Disable UAC settings ==
    You might get access denied error message while installing the monitor drivers.
    The error message might come up if the UAC (User Access Control) in Microsoft Windows Vista is kept enabled, hence not allowing the installation.
    To resolve the issue please follow the steps given below :
    1. Click Start
    2. Click Control Panel
    3. Click User Accounts and Family Safety
    4. Click User Accounts
    5. Click Turn User Account Control On or Off
    6. Uncheck the checkbox
    7. Click OK
    You will need to restart your computer for the change to take effect.
    Now try to install the monitor drivers and check for the results.
    If still the issue persists then :
    Step 2 :
    1. Click Start -> All Programs -> HP My Display -> Display Diagnostic Utility.
    2. In the Display Diagnostic Utility click on “Clear Registry”. A Clean Reg Window would open, Click on “Yes”
    3. On restart you will have “Other Devices” with “Generic Monitor” List under that same.
    4. Continue the process of “Clean Registry” until you get “Other Devices” with “Generic Monitor” listed under that same.
    5. Now insert the disc and install the drivers.
    or Download the HP w2007 LCD Monitor Driver from the weblink provided below :
    Now install the drivers.
    6. Restart the computer.
    7. This time it says "new hardware found with recommendation to install".
    8. Cancel it.
    9. Immediately, it gives option "Do not show the message again" and also says computer won't function if we select it.
    Proceed by check marking it. You may be prompted to check mark it twice if prompted.
    10. Restart the computer to check for the error message.
    It will no more ask to install the monitor drivers.
    Take your time, please try the steps and get back to us with the results.

    My old monitor says "frequency out of range" on my new desktop.

    No Worries,

    What you are experiencing is a frequent occurrence when monitors are upgraded, switched, whatever. Computers don't always recognize monitors as 'Plug n Play' devices. When you switch them out, the change may not be noticed.

    What you are looking for is the 'Refresh Rate'.

    Put the old (or new, which ever worked last) monitor back on and reboot. The screen should come up normally
    • Right Click the Desktop
    • Click Properties
    • Click Settings
    • Click Advanced
    • Click Monitor
    • Lower the refresh rate or set at optimal
    • Check the box 'Hide refresh rates this monitor can't display'
    Shutdown, Switch back and try it now.

    If it gives you any problems at all, comment me back. I'll walk through it with you.

    Good luck
