That status line was designed together with your OS, it seems that your PC was getting slow in boot..

A number of factors, having little to do with the age or capabilities or your system, can create excruciating system slowness. They include the following:

Operating System
File System (how you've organized files on your PC)
Applications
Hardware

The Windows OS (operating system) is notoriously inefficient, which can affect performance. The file system also impacts Windows and hardware performance. How you work with applications can improve system speed, as can some basic hardware updates.

When i start the machine up it starts up... then the image gets staticky,,, then all u can see is white lines and no image, im not sure if it is the video card thats causing the problem. Need to fix t


Hello,

If you are able to connect an external monitor, do so. (If you can make it a newer lcd type) Sounds like your monitor's display is set to the wrong setting (refresh and pixel) With an newer lcd, you should be able to see your screen and reset the display to the lowest setting. Reconnect your Sony monitor. (if the external work and you are able to reset the settings, you do not need to power off your pc, just switch the monitor cable from the external to the regular monitor.

Good Luck

Red bars appear all over the desktop. They appeared on another monitor we hooked up to see if it was a monitor problem. Is this a video card problem or other?


To remove the red bars on your screen please follow the below given steps.
1.First unplug all the power cables to avoid shocks. Then open your cabinet and look for the "RAM" on the mother board.

2. It is a long chip fixed on any of the slots on the mother board.

3.Take it out by utmost care.

4 Rub a normal eraser on the golden pins on it and fix it again. Below is an image to help you out

Thanks.

I have a dell Dimension 2300 and the images are very dark. I don't think it is from the monitor.


Try these steps: 1. Check the monitor settings. Access the On Screen Display (OSD) Menu System. Adjust the contrast and brightness using the control buttons in the monitor.
2. Run the monitor self test. Unplug the video cable from the computer (cable from monitor to the back of the computer). Usually it has a blue or white connector. Turn on the monitor alone. It should display the self test pattern (white, red, green & blue). If the images are dark in the self test, it is a problem with the monitor.
2. Rotate the monitor to face a different direction. This will help in eliminating sunlight glare which can cause poor picture quality.
3. Test your computer using another working monitor. If the problem occurs in a known good monitor, then it is a video card or motherboard (if your video card is integrated) problem.
I hope these options help.

I have a compaq desktop, winxp sp3. white has turned pink


The monitor needs some minor repair and alignment that's all

If you are any good with electronics and have a bit of decent test gear lying around you could probably do this job yourself.

But if not then a local TV or computer repair shop will be able to handle it and it should not cost too much.

Its a common problem on older CRT type screens

Dell flat screen goes white and colored block appears and floats


Check that your monitor is connected properly and tightly to the computer. If it is, then the monitor may be bad. Borrow a friend's monitor and try to see if it works, if someone else's monitor works, then replace your monitor.

Monitor Showing to much red


Hi,
Is it possible that your PC or Monitor is just showing more red tones? Have you checked a WHITE background like a blank webpage? Does it have a red tint too?
Do you possibly have speakers or an external fan near your computer or your monitor? If so they sometimes have magnets that will interfere with your screen.
Another thing you might want to check is to unplug the monitor cable that attaches to the computer and check and see if any of the PINS in the plug are bent.
Please let me know how this works out for you.
Thanks,
Kaj

My screen goes blank immediately after initial DELL startup image


You can either try to reset the BIOS, or have the restore cd fix it for you. By the way, what does the message say?

No image but only two bright white horizontal lines in the middle


Try checking the monitor and monitor cord to make sure they are working properly. Try it on another computer and see if the lines are still there. If they are, then you will need a new monitor and if they are not, then you may need a new monitor port for your computer. You will need that checked by a professional to be sure. If you can, open the computer and check the connections from the monitor port to the motherboard and make sure they are ok.


To contact me, just re-post and I will try to answer any questions or comments immediatley.

Hp vectra vl wont start xp, keeps trying to start over


Could you explain what are you booting from if like you said "no disk drive on this". What was the last thing the member of your family does on that PC? Any new installed programs, or hardware? Does the PC restarts itself after that "full circle" or stays frosen?
