Hi There,

Well, no one is jumping to the forefront to help you yet with bids for money for your solution because it's probably not the best of news. So, do me a favor and don't trash my rating because I'm going to try my best to help you know exactly what's wrong.

Your problem is almost certainly not software so it can only be one of 2 culprits; your monitor or your video card on the motherboard of your desktop. Here's how to find out which one it is. Turn off the computer and disconnect everything and take the tower to where you can connect to a monitor you know is working fine. Connect up to that monitor and power up.

If the computer displays properly then you know you need to repair or replace the monitor. If it doesn't, then you know your issue is with the video card on the motherboard.

This will cost you nothing except time and some lugging around of your 'puter, but you'll know what's up and be able to make an intelligent decision without somebody taking advantage of you on the repair end.

Best of Luck!!

Power on green light flashing no display on da monitor


The flashing green light and no display usually means that the backlight circuit has failed. You can verify this by shining a flashlight on the dark screen and see if there is an image. If there is an image, then the problem is the backlight circuit. Often the problem with the circuit is that the transistors burn out. There are sellers on ebay that sell repair parts kits to fix these monitors if you are handy or you can bring to to an electronic repair service to have it fixed.

Vertical green line in display


This is a hardware issue. If it's under warranty, no problem, get it fixed. Otherwise, you can either put up with it or replace the unit. LCD displays like this are so inexpensive now that it no longer is cost effective to repair them.

Monitor keeps blank even the power lLED is on green


If it's working fine in DOS, it can only be your display drivers for your operating system. What happes when you start in SAFE MODE? When you PC starts, keep pressing the F8 key, go to Safe Mode. If it works, bring the Resolution down to 800 X 600 and load the new display card drivers. Restart, should be fine.
