Blank monitor Loaded driver for new HP printer. When computer was restarted, the monitor was blank. HP can do nothing to help because all help needs a monitor. I tried a spare monitor I have and it is blank also. I am using my laptop to seek help.

Try this.

Turn the computer off.

Press F8 on the keyboard and select safe mode.

See if the monitor is corrected with that process and restart windows in the normal mode.

Proper wiring my hp pavilion p6 2330pc and my hp printer


http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=5296967&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en

1) DO NOT connect printer to computer!

2) Put the Installation Disk for the printer, in the optical drive of your computer. (Comes with the printer)
If you do not have this disk, post back in a Comment.

You will download the software from HP Support.
I need the printer model name, and model number.
Also what Windows operating system you are using.

(It cannot be assumed what Operating System you are using.
May not be the one that came with the computer)

If you have the Installation Disk, load ALL software.
(One example; HP Photosmart Full Feature Software & Drivers)


[Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

The device is the Printer. The O/S wasn't stated.

The Full Feature software covers all the software the printer needs.
If it is a unit that can Scan, Copy, Print, and Fax, for example;
all of that software will be loaded ]

ONCE the software is loaded, restart your computer if not asked.
After Windows has loaded again, let the computer run for a few minutes.

Now restart the computer.
(WinXP example; Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart)

Plug the USB cable from the printer into the computer.
Turn the printer on.

After a few seconds you should get a pop-up in the taskbar,
"Found new hardware device"
And perhaps another one,
"Found HP XXXXX device "

(X's stands for model name/number of printer)

IF,.......you have connected the printer FIRST, then attempted to install software -> This = NO.

You can get a driver conflict.
Post back in a Comment if this is what you have done.

[When a device (Printer in this case), is connected, Windows 'breaks it's neck' to find suitable, matching drivers.

If THE drivers are not there, Windows will pick from it's THOUSANDS of generic drivers.

Now you you install THE drivers needed, and there is a driver conflict;

Windows: "Which ones do I use? These or THESE?" ]

Post the printer model name, and model number. This can be found on the Back of the printer.

(This is the type of USB cable end, that usually plugs into a printer,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_connector#Cable_plugs_.28USB_1.x.2F2.0.29

Type B. It is also a Male plug. So it's a USB B Male.

Square shape with two corners cut off.

The USB A Male connector is the one that plugs into the computer.
(Type A)

Rectangle shape )

I have an HP Pavilion a1777c with a blank monitor


If the computer is starts up normally other than the no-video problem (that is, you hear all the normal sounds from the computer and the usual Windows startup music), then you probably do need a new video card. According to HP's spec page for the motherboard used, you'll need a PCI-E video card. Don't confuse this with a regular PCI card which has a different connector.

The spec page also says the board has integrated graphics. so you could remove any video card that's been installed and try booting with the built-in video. If everything else is working properly you can use that until you get a new expansion video card.

If the trouble is that the computer's not booting at all even though it's coming on, you'll need to figure out why. This might be a memory or video problem, although these usually cause some beep code if the motherboard gets into its POST (power on self-test). If nothing at all happens, this is often the sign of a bad power supply, processor chip or system board.

When using computer for about 10 min, monitor goes blank with an error message of"No Input Signal" then computer rebuts several times. Any idea's?


Its possible that your computer maybe having a driver conflicting with your monitor. My suggestion would be reinstall the software that came with your monitor. If you don't have that go to the companies website that produced the monitor and download the newest monitor drivers.
As well for an extra double check, make sure that all wires connected to the monitor and the computer are in place.
(might check your monitors energy saving setting)

Dead pc


try to remove all external device connected to your computer. just leave the keyboad, mouse and monitor connected.
restart computer.
if still a blank screen
remove everything connected to your computer (mouse kyeboard and monitor) restart if nothing happens
open your computer and remove all devices (hard drive, optical drives, memory... restart,,, you should be hearing beeping sounds indicating motherboard is looking for memory. try putting back 1 memory at a time and checking all mem slot. to identify if one of the memory could be causing the blank screen. if both memory will not work try to use known good working memory. if you dont get to hear the beeping sound using a known good working memory. your memory is the problem.
