If you are positive that your monitor is good, the cable is connected properly and everything is powered up and in working order, you may only have a blown onboard video card. If you have a free PCI slot available (I think it normally has only two free PCI slots) I would try to find borrow a used PCI video card to see if that will work before wasting any good mony on a new one. You would have to disable the built in video from the BIOS, but it would be worth a try if you can find someone with an old PCI video card willing to let you try it out. Given the age of the system, don't waste too much money taking it to a repair shop though as you can spend half the cost of just buying a newer and more capable new computer very quickly.

Good Luck

MONITOR IS BLACK, POWER LITE IS ON, I CAN HEAR COMPUTER SOUNDS


By computer sounds do you mean the sound of fans and hard drives spinning? If there are no loud distinct beeps indicating a startup error (See Post Beep Codes), then I would check the following.

I'm assuming you mean the power light on the monitor is on. If that is the case then it is one of two things.


  1. The monitor is not set to the correct input source.
    • Make sure you go through the monitors menu and select the input. Example
  2. The video cable to the monitor has a bad connection.
    • Make sure the cable is connected properly
    • If repositioning the cable differently restores the image than the cable is most likely failing. Try replacing the cable with known good one.
    • If the cable is good it could be a problem in the jack on the monitor or the computer.
      To repair this would require disassembling the monitor or computer and replacing the jack.
      However, most computers and monitor have more than one type video input/output. Try the other input/output jacks. Example

No screen image


Test with known good monitor. Consult a nerd at this point. They can diagnose things quickly. Its usually more obvious then you think.


If still no image, replace video card. You can buy a replacement online. Most likely you have something else going on. For example, You usually hear beeps from a PC if it is doesn't pass post testing during startup. This could also cause no video output. You would need to check PC memory and power supply as those two can cause many performance problems.

I have a hp 2009m monitor and it keeps telling me to check video cable.


Possible causes:

1. Bad cable. Use another video cable that you know is good and test with it.

2. Input source on monitor incorrect. Check to make sure you've got it set to the correct input (VGA or HDMI)

3. Unplug/replug the video cable connections at both the monitor and computer...it could be just corrosion or dust.

4. Hook up the monitor to another computer that you know is working. If your monitor then works, then you know that the video output on your computer has failed. You can also test this situation by connecting a known good monitor w/known good cable to your computer to see if you get video.

Hope that's helpful.

The computer was in use when the display cut out. The monitor is fine and the computer turns on but has no display on the monitor


I presume that you tried the monitor on another system to verify function. Try restart after 2 min power down and disconnect and try again, then take another "known good" monitor and try that. If both monitors give no image, video output is suspect. Many motherboards have the video output as part of the board itself, cost prohibitive to replace motherboard.
Sometimes you can plug in a PCI video card and bypass system video.

Monitor switches on. shows screen for about 5


Make sure your computer is working properly. Hook up another known working monitor up to the computer and turn it on. If you get video on the known good monitor then that means the original monitor is bad. If you don't get video on the know good working monitor then that means the computer has no video output and the computer would need to be troubleshooted.

My laptop monitor is not woking


When you plug the DC power adapter and press on the power button, the laptop starts making normal noises, the LEDs work properly but noting appears on the screen. The laptop will not start.
First of all, take a closer look at the LCD screen. Look at the screen under bright light. It’s possible that the image is still on the screen but it’s very faint.
If there is no image on the laptop LCD screen, test the laptop with an external monitor. Connect an external monitor to the VGA port on your laptop and turn the laptop on. You can toggle video output between the internal LCD screen and external monitor by pressing Fn and F4 keys simultaneously on HP laptops, Fn and F5 keys on Toshiba laptops, Fn and F7 keys on IBM laptops. Other laptops may use different key combinations.
Let’s say the external monitor works fine but the internal LCD screen has no image at all. If that’s the case, your problem could be related to the LCD screen or the video cable. Also, make sure the video cable makes good connection with the motherboard and the LCD screen. Try reconnecting, reseating the cable.
In my case, both internal and external monitors were absolutely dead. Neither of them had image. That means the problem is not related to the LCD screen or the video cable. From my experience I know that this problem could be related to the laptop memory.
Try reseating the memory module, maybe it’s not making good connection with the memory slot. Try cleaning contacts on the memory module with pen eraser. Try moving the memory module into another slot. Try replacing the memory module with another known good module, it’s possible that your original module is dead.
If you have two memory modules installed you can try removing them one by one, it’s possible that one of the modules is bad. Try installing different memory modules into different memory slots.

In my case reseating, swapping the memory module didn’t help. I was pretty confident that my problem is not memory related and I moved on.
Try removing battery, hard drive and DVD drive and turning on the laptop without these components.
Also, try turning on the laptop with an external monitor when the video cable is unplugged from the motherboard. If the laptop start with video on the external monitor, apparently there is something wrong with the laptop display panel.
Finally, disassemble the laptop and removed the motherboard.
1. Motherboard. Like on most laptops, in my case the video card is integrated into the motherboard
2. CPU with heatsink and cooling fan.
3. Known good memory module.
4. The power button board witch you need to turn on the system.
5. Working DC power adapter.

Still cannot get any video on the external monitor. The system turns on, the cooling fan starts spinning but there is no video.
At this point I’m 95% sure that the motherboard is dead. CPU failures are not very common, so it must be bad motherboard.

I'm getting no video


Try a "known-good" monitor with your computer.
If no output, then your computer's video-card is suspect.

Try your monitor connected to another desktop/laptop.
If no output, then your monitor is the problem.

Computer monitor turns on but no image appears.


1. When you boot the computer keep pressed 'F' & 'J'. the display should appear if there is no hard to your hardwares.
2. If you still not get the images on monitor try to unplug and plug back in the monitor's data cord.
3. If you still do not get success then you must need to open the computer tower and see if the RAM is not loose from the slot and processor is not loose from its slot.

Once these settings are perfect nothing can stop you getting from the proper display until and unless you monitor is damaged.

Best of luck!

Monitor is acting up been using for about 3 years


The problem is most likely caused by one of two things. Either your monitor has a defect or the video output of your computer is defective. The problem can be isolated by connecting your monitor to another computer that you know is working properly. If the problem occurs on the known good computer then you know the monitor is the problem. Just to be sure connect a known good monitor to your computer If the problem occurs when you have a good known monitor connected to your computer then you know the problem is with your computer and not the monitor.

Please let us know if this answers your question.
