    We sent the computer to Texas to our "tecky" brother-in-law and he said it was the motherboard. Thanks everyone for your help.

Open the computer case back up, after unplugging it. Take new RAM out. Check ALL cable connections inside, also take video card out and reseat it back into it's slot. Now power on computer. If video works then suspect bad RAM. Turn pc back off, unplug, reinstall new RAM, repolace case, but be certain No cable was accidently bumped or jarred aloose. before replacing case, plug pc back in and power on, if it still will not come on, then you have a bad RAM stick. Sned it back for a replacement. I have had a few of these over the years, I hope this helps, but let me know.

Monitor doesn't display any information. All hookups are in tact.


While it is still power on, unplug it from the video port of your computer. Can you see anything on the monitor? If so, the problem is with your computer. You need to troubleshoot. First try the monitor on another computer and verify that it's working fine. If it's not, then ask for repair and if it would cost some around $200, I don't recommend, you'll get a bigger and better new monitor for $200.

If you think there's nothing wrong with the printer and is tested ok, then start working with your computer, first try with another monitor and boot up, probably it shouldn't work, if it does, then the cable you were connecting the other monitor must be the faulty.

The best thing you can do with a dead video computer is to re-seat the Rams, Power connectors and Bios battery. First remove the Ram/s and boot again, you'll hear the beeping, means there's no ram installed. After cleaning the ram, again install it/ (if there are multiple rams, install only one), now boot again. same problem, try again with the other ram.
If you see no changes while working with the rams, then it must be the bios or the video card itself. If you have a spare graphics card, try it or if you don't have one, then the only solution is to replace the motherboard.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

SCREEN WON'T COME ON AT STARTUP.


Can you try this on your friend PC? We need to narrow down the proble first.
Most common failure in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what goes wrong: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Hi!

Here's what you need to do. Connect the computer to another monitor and adjust the resolution. It could be that the current resolution of your PC is not supported by the monitor. Try adjusting it first and then test again.

I have a BenQ FP791 17 in LCD. I was working until one day I turned it on and it now only displays an all white screen. I plugged it in to another computer, same problem. I can add it as a second monitor to windows but all it displays is white. Windows finds it and the mouse can move over to it but I do not see anything. I am handy with a soldering iron, but not nessisarily diagnosing electronic problems.
Comment posted on Oct 26, 2008I ended up replacing the bulging capacitors on the board inside, and now it works. Thanks for all the comments and help.

Re: Creeping black line


Hi mrtaz187 -
Well, the pixels can go bad on the LCD monitors and from what you are explaining, it certainly sounds like this is the case on your monitor. I wish that I had better news for you but the monitor will have to be replaced. Sorry. I know that Walmart has had these monitors on sale in the past and they have offered a 13 month warranty. If you could return it from where you bought it (under warranty), that would be the best solution... otherwise it will need to be replaced because usually the bad pixel problem grows worse over time.

Hope that helps,

Take care,
Michael

Monitor won't come on after changing ram.


Make sure that the new RAM is fully seated into the slot. The snap clips on the side will automatically lock in when the ram is fully inserted.

Monitor goes Black off and on .....


I had the same problem for about a week and solved it yesterday by downloading the latest driver by NVDIA who makes my video card (NVDIA GeForce 6200).
I had previously updated the latest Sony driver for the monitor. It did not solve the problem but could be part of the solution in conjunction with the new video card driver.
