Question about HP Pavilion a800n (PP163AA) PC Desktop

2 Answers

Last night my computer was just fine. Today i attempted to turn on the computer and the lcd screen(monitor) said "no imput signal" Seconds later, the monitor went into sleep mode. I took the computer and monitor into best buy. They conected the vga cable and the monitor began to function properly. They thought that i did not have the vga cable screwed tight enough. I went back home and encountered the same freak'n problem as before. What am i doing wrong? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    No, they used my VGA cable, my monitor and my tower! That is why this situation is so frustrating to me. It is not rocket science but there must be something going on. I going to try another surge protector or something because this is ridiculous.

Is the monitor being plugged into onboard video or through a video card. If it's through a video card just make sure that there isn't any loose connections inside the computer between the card and the motherboard.

Monitor dead


Check your power cables properly and make sure it is attached. Check your power button, maybe you have pressed the wrong one.

My monitor doesn't display anything, though it's receiving input from the CPU. I know that input is being received because the monitor status light is green, and times out (turns orange).


Same thing happened to me! Went to bed last night, everything was fine. Woke up today, orange light came on, no display, slight flickering seen, but that's it. Cables and cords are fine, tried unplugging and plugging it back in, NOTHING. Totally dead. I'm guess off to buy a new one today. Typical made-in-China JUNK.

Colored vertical lines on monitor


Have you unplugged the power cord to the LCD? Let it sit for a minute, then try it. ALWAYS buy a UPS and plug any computer devices into it. Doesn't have to be big, a $50 unit will protect it from dangerous voltage surges.

Blank screen


Hi!
A simple test is to connect another working monitor, to figure out if the problem is at cable connection or at graphics card 's output, and replace properly.
good luck!

Distorted white lines running across screen


Disconnect the monitor from the computer and turn the monitor on
it will display a diagnostic colorbar are the lines still there.
if not they are likely a cable or video card.
if they are still there have a tech evaluate the monitor.
