Hi havinthangs,

Have you tried ignoring the monitor error, that is pressing F1?

Additionally, you can try, use a separate power connector for the DVD drive not piggybacked to the one used by the HD. If your drives are SATA, double check on the power adapter. If your DVD is external and USB connected, check its own power supply. Further you may want to un-check the Auto Power OFF in Power Management for USBs.

If you think the problem is PSU related, you can try lowering your BIOS/CMOS settings down to Default and not Optimized.

Of course the next best try would be to use a another PSU preferably with a higher wattage.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My hp moniter stopped working like a fuse blew. i was wondering if it has an internal fuse and how to get to it. It's an HP vs19b moniter. thanks for any help


Hi,

Thank you for choosing FixYa. I recommend try going to any computer local center and have them check your monitor because there could be other parts have been affected by that problem, there could be other hardware that cause the problem why the fuse failed.

Hope it helps.

Hardware monitor error


Hi,

Sounds like loose connection on your monitor card, if installed seperately, otherwise the wrong drivers installed.

Boot up in safe mode and uninstall the monitor drivers. and try and boot again.

Let me know if need further help.

Hardware monitor found an error


Diagnosis: Lack of P.S.U. fan speed report indicates P.S.U. fan sensor damaged by overheating. This was caused by cooling fin blockage since the Sony design on this model cools the C.P.U. THROUGH the P.S.U.
Expert level fix: Remove P.S.U. Remove C.P.U. fan and vacuum. Remove C.P.U. cooling fins from C.P.U. and cooling fan mounts from fin box, vacuum. Reassemble C.P.U cooling system. Replace P.S.U. with O.E.M. part only since in this case it is proprietary to the unit.

Help please , hardware monitor found error


First, try by reinstalling Nero 7. If that doesnt work, it could be that your graphics driver does not have enough built in memory, and you will probably need to replace that. You could try installing the latest version of the driver for your graphics card first..

How much RAM do you have on your system? 128MB should be fine, but I recommend at least 512 MB installed.

Check these first and let me know how it goes..

Again go to my computer, to find properties/hardware/device- highlight the drive, right click and refresh or scan for hardware changes.
If its found your device works properly if not found please check when is your drive’s gate open to push the open button?
If yes please shutdown your pc and check your drive data cable.
