Question about Computers & Internet

When I turned off my monitor last night, it was fine. When I turned it back on this afternoon, all of the colors were darkened and discolored. It looks like my contrast was change, but it wasn't, since no one came in my room and I did not change it. I did check to make sure all of the color settings were right, just in case and nothing was wrong. Do I need a new monitor or is it something that can be fixed?

    Hi; please do check the video cable, ensuring it is completely and kind of tightly connected at the back of the computer - two small finger-tightening thumb-screws can be turned in clockwise to make sure that connection is completely properly kind of tightly connected. Remember righty-tighty, lefty-loosy... Please follow on with me for a minute more... Also check the video cable connection that connects at the back of the monitor or the bottom of the monitor. If the video signal is getting through from the video circuitry in the computer, out through the connector and through the cable and appears on the monitor, then that possibility - that the connection is not good and solid - has been eliminated. If the video is better, you are all set. Oh, the power connector, if it is not completely tightly connected at the PC, and also the power cord that goes to the monitor, push in to be sure each is completely well connected to power. But just push those power cord ends in, do not wiggle or remove them as you should always keep a powered up PC well powered and properly shut down the PC and should never want your PC to just lose power poof off suddenly. Next, check power settings for your desktop PC, yes even your desktop PC, or for your notebook PC. It is possible the monitor is failing but worth taking these few minutes to ensure it actually needs to be replaced or repaired. - Don Dassinger 6-18-08 on FixYa

Is this an lcd flat panel monitor or a crt? if it is a flat panel then you may be dealing with blown capacitors on the vga board inside. they can be replaced therby repairing the monitor. if it is a crt then just recycle it and buy a newer lcd monitor to replace this old one.

I need help in my computer, last night my computer's screen color is normal but today i start my computer so its screen color has been changed in green .. so tell me how it has chaged and now wat do to do?...


This can happen dur to the following reasons
1. Monitor cable that is connected to the tower may be loose, disconnect it and reseat it properly.
2. Monitor cable is damaged, please check if the cable is pressed against some thing and damaged, if so you can detach the monitor cable and buy a new cable.
3. Monitor is faulty, the color functionality electronics is bad, this can be rectified by a monitor service personnel.
4. Display card is faulty (onboard or add on), to check if this is not the scenario - Disconnect the monitor from the tower and turn of the monitor and the switch it on you should be seeing colored bars, if the colours are looking good then the monitor is fine and the display card is faulty.

Please check the above steps one by one and reply to this post in case you are unable to narrow down the cause. Thank you for contacting Fixya.

Display problem with Dell Inspiron 537


If it displays nothing at all through the boot process it's either the cable or the VGA card. It may be that the computer has gone into hibernate as it was left on overnight. Try pressing and holding the powerr button.

E-machine was working fine last night got up and it turns on but the monitor says check cable or power but all is ok.Computer wont display anything, can anyone help?


Do a reset: Turn the computer and monitor off. Unplug the monitor video cable from the computer and unplug the monitor power cord from the wall outlet. Let it sit for 5 or 10 minutes. Plug everything back in, turn on the monitor, then start the computer. Sometimes that will work.
If you still have the same problem, try to borrow a known to be good monitor from somebody. If it works, then you know your monitor is bad.
It's also possible that your video circuitry is bad. If the monitor plugs straight into the motherboard (onboard video), then you'll need to purchase a video card and install it. Disable the onboard video first.

Won't turn on


Seems that your CPU-Cabinet is not giving the video output for your monitor. Please check the powercord and other internal assembly (if possible) that runs in and around the cabinet and restart the machine.

Desktop monitor


Hi

Disconnect the monitor from the tower and then turn on the monitor.
If u get a msg like no input signal or check video cable then the monitor is fine. If this is the case, it could be a problem with the tower or the cable.
