There is no display on the screen


If you have a display when restartings your computer (the first 10-20 seconds) and then it turns black you can restart your computer, and press f8 during startup, when given options menu choose VGA Mode, windows then starts in minimal graphics mode (safe mode) and you will then have to manually set correct screen resolution that supports your monitor (1024x768 should be safe)

No input signal at the monitor when I plug it to a laptop, only when in safe mode I can see the desktop of laptop


When you power up the computer press F8 key then you can see safe mode and other menu enter in "enable VGA mode"
Then go to start ->control panel ->display- settings.
Change screen resolution to 1024*768
Then apply and ok.
then restart then check.
If you still get blank screen then enter in safe mode and uninstall graphic driver from control panel -> add remove program wizard or device manager.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Monitor comes on for seconds and then goes black


This may be because the resolution that is set in your user profile when you log on has been changed to a resolution not supported by the monitor. The best way to fix this is by going into Safe Mode (press F8 as the computer starts to load Windows) and change it to a lower resolution once you get logged in. 1024X768 is a pretty safe resolution to start with. Then restart and see if that fixes the issue.

Screen resolution issue


Use the "F-8" key at boot to get into safe mode. You should then be able to fix the resolution/refresh rate conflict while in safe mode, and get back to normal.

Blank/Black Screen Asus PC 4G


When you first turn on the computer, start tapping the F8 key to bring up the safe mode screen. You have a very short window in which to press the F8 key before XP loads, so it is possible to miss it. If this happens, just restart it and try it again. Once you are on the safe mode screen, select the enable VGA mode. This will boot your computer to a default 640 x 480 resolution so you can change it back to normal.

Thanks and please don't forget to give this solution a fixya rating.
