Usually this is caused by a bad VGA cable. Try wiggling the cable around and see if you can get it to come back to normal. I have one PC right now that I've had to attach a rubber band to to keep the cable in a certain spot so I don't get a tint. Unfortunately, if your VGA cable is built into the monitor, you'll have to replace the monitor but if it's not then you can just purchase a new one and that should solve the whole problem.

If it's not the cable (i.e., you wiggled and twisted it near the computer's plug in and it doesn't change at all) then it's either the monitor itself or the video card. Test the monitor on another computer and see if it does it then reattach it to the original system. If it does then we know it's the monitor.

What can you advice me to do? i have a UPS SURTD5000XLI, indicating a red Led light, but when i remove it from the AC power source, the Red Led also remove & when i flog it again to the AC Source it...


Is red light on for overload or for battery?
If on overload, try reducing the load on the UPS. If red light on overload persists buy a new UPS (overload fault hard to repair).

Red light on battery - replace the batteries.

Red light on boost or buck, may mean that the nominal voltage of ups and the limits need to be changed/corrected.

My inverted goes to battery mode even when mains supply is ok.then it will come back to normal mode again and run of mains.what is the solution


If this happens repeatedly and doesn't stop for 10-30 minutes... then you have a bad inverter. Price of repair compared to just buying a new one are about the same.

Remember, it's not just sags in current that activate the UPS, it's also spikes... and if you're getting many of those in a short time frame then the UPS is doing it's job.

Power light flashing green to red


Assuming the "squiggle line" is the Utility LED the unit has proper power. The light is steady green and not flashing, correct?

Have you reset the unit?

Try removing all but one attached device to verify it's not an overload condition.

A photo of the control panel would help.

ups with 300 watts can only back up 1 computer, though it can handle 2 computers but not too long. your ups battery life span are good only for 2 to 3 years. for battery replacement you can visit the nearest service center and ask for battery replacement. it will not cost you much.

Getting red light and continuously beep sound to my UPS(Frontech)


hi

If it is showing the red light and continuous beep it shows that the battery is completely gone.

You can buy a battery and replace it by yourself.

Or get it to a professional to change the battery.

you need not replace the whole UPS its just a battery problem.

Thank you

My laptop screen


Occasionally the toolbars just transfer themselfves to the side. If this is the problem, and say the toolbars are on the right side, just point near the lower part of the toolbar and then keep the left click mouse button down and drag it back to the bottom of the screen. May take several attempts.
