Re: Green Flash power only on one computer
It sounds like the monitor functions properly and your computer functions properly, but the combination causes a problem. Try making sure the screen resolution on your main computer is set to an acceptable resolution for your monitor - AL1916. Try setting it low to 800x600 and move up from there until it doesn't work anymore. You can change the screen resolution from the Display Settings (right click on the desktop and select Display Settings) window.

It is possible that the monitor is going back into "Sleep mode" meaning it is not detecting a valid signal from whatever device it is plugged into. I would try replacing the cable that is connecting the monitor to the PC or Console. As a trouble shooting step try pulling up the "Menu" on the monitor itself by pressing the "Menu" button on the front panel of the monitor, if this does come up then we can say that the LCD itself is most likely working.
Hook a spare monitor to the computer, if okay! the problem is the power supply board, one or capacitors are open leaving in some cases a slight puff at the top. If symptoms are the same for both displays, it means the Video Graphics Card in the computer is defective.
Believe it or not but theirs an order in witch you should connect up a compute,r but first make sure that there is only 1 VGA port ie (monitor socket) on the back of it. But if theirs 2 then try the other one. Other than that try this: Unplug EVERYTHING! even the power leads from the back of the monitor & pc. 1.Press the power button on pc & monitor to flash out any power left in them. 2.plug in & tighten the VGA cable to the pc then to the monitor if required. 3.plug in all other peripherals ie USB / MOUSE / KEYBOARD etc... 4.plug in the power supply to the monitor then the pc. 4.Switch on the power supply to the monitor first then the pc. 5.Switch on the monitor by it's power button then the pc right after it.
Try unplugging te signal cable from the PC and see if it changes in any way, EG. you get a no signal message or anything also try the menu button again. If you get anything on the screen then there is a mismatch between the PC and the monitor, Screen Resolution, Bent pin in the cable or something similar.
use the onboard graphics instead of a seperate graphics card (if installed) to test the screen.if it still doesn't work then unplug your monitor from the mains supply and plug in again to reset it. i doubt it's your monitor that is the problem though. but look on the back of your pc for another connection for your screen. the onboard graphics connection is normally vertical near your ethernet port and mouse and keyboard inputs.
it could be th epower supply and it could be the monitor.
power ON button should not flash orange regardless what you do. it should stay green. then orange. not orange to green to orange.
try the monitor on another PC if you can fine one.
the other thing is are the 2 monitor similar (CRT to CRT and LCD to LCD), you can't mix the the two, they will work but need different video driver to function correctly.
What type of monitor do you have? I need to no if the power supply or cord plugs directly into the LCD Monitor? These questions are important! Please answer these questions, I will be able to give you an answer!
