Aspire AX1200-U1510A starts but monitor doesn't show anything. Monitor works with an odl Dell.


If an old Dell monitor works with your computer then that monitor has something wrong with it.

Try to plug in the monitor to a wall outlet but do not plug it to your computer. If it still doesn't show anything, then you should replace it. You can contact the manufacturer of the monitor. You might have a warranty for it. They might fix it or replace it with a new one.

I hope this helps.

I have a hp v75 old desktop computer that I brought from my garage, I got everything plugged up, but the monitor wouldn't show anything.. I googled it and I didn't think it would work but I just...


As your monitor had showed up once before, I assume it is still in a good condition. The next time, you were not able to wake up the monitor by pressing the power button on your CPU cabinet, which means, the power supply to the monitor may have been interrupted. To check whether your monitor is working properly, plug it to any direct connection and see if the power button on the monitor is flashing. If this works, get everything plugged up, check all the connections properly and try to run the computer again.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

PC SWITCHS ON BUT NO PICTURE


1. Check to make sure your monitor is on! Some monitors have more than one power button or switch - check to make sure they're all switched on.Check for disconnected monitor power cable connections. Your monitor might be working fine and your only problem may be a loose or unplugged monitor power cable.Note: A disconnected monitor power cable could be the cause of your problem if your monitor's power light is completely off.Check for disconnected monitor data cable connections. Again, your monitor might be turning on without a problem but no information can get to it because the cable that connects your monitor to your computer is disconnected or loose.Note: A disconnected monitor data cable could be the cause of your problem if your monitor's power light is on but is amber or yellow instead of green.Turn the monitor's brightness and contrast settings completely up. Your monitor might be showing information but you just can't see it because these display settings are too dark.Note: Most monitors today have a single onscreen interface for all settings, including brightness and contrast. If it turns out that your monitor isn't working at all then you'll likely not have access to this interface. An older monitor might have manual knobs for adjusting these settings.Test that your computer is working correctly by connecting a different monitor that you are certain is working properly to your PC. Your monitor may be working fine but your computer might not be sending information to it.If the new monitor you connected does not show anything either, proceed to Step 6.If the new monitor you connected does show information from your computer, proceed to Step 7.Important: When testing with the new monitor, make sure you use the data cable that came with it and not the one from your original monitor.Determine why your computer isn't sending information to your monitor. Since neither monitor works, you now know that the computer is not sending information to the monitor. In other words, you've proven that your computer is the reason that nothing shows up on your monitor.Chances are your original monitor is working fine.Test your original monitor with a monitor data cable that you know is working. It's possible that the monitor itself is working properly but it can't receive information from the computer because the cable that connects the monitor to the PC is no longer working.Note: If possible, test using the data cable from the monitor that you successfully tested with in Step 5. If not, purchase a replacement monitor data cable to test with.Note: The data cable on some older monitors are permanently connected to the monitor and are not replaceable. In these cases, you'll have to skip this step and proceed to Step 8 Replace the monitor.

I have a lenovo thinkcentre S51 8171 KUU. It was working fine until about a month ago, when it suddenly stopped working. The computer will power on, the fan will turn on, but the monitor will not display...


IF YOU JUST USE THE ONBOARD GRAPHIC,I THINK SOMETHINK IS WRONG WITH IT.
IF YOU DONT USE THE ONBOARD GRAPH.
CHANGE GRAPHIC CARD, THE S8171 SUPPORTS ATI x700 AND 700 pro, THEY HAVE 128 ,256 or 512 MB. THIS GRAPH._CARD IS A PCIEx16 and it will work WITH YOUR NORMAL POWERSUPPLY. NO EXTRA POWERCABLE FOR PCIEx16 NEEDED. AFTER INSTALLING, BOOT THE COMPUTER, GO F1 OR F2 TO THE BIOS. SET VIDEO SETUP TO PEG an STORE IT. NO OTHER CHANGES IN BIOS, NEVER GO TO IGD (THIS IS ONLY FOR ONBOARD GRAPH. )
NEVER GO TO COMBO.

OR MUCH MORE SIMPLE, USE AN OTHER MONITOR FIRST.

My pc does not give display ? Why


Time Required: Testing a monitor could take from a few minutes to much longer depending on the cause of the problem Here's How:
  1. Check to make sure your monitor is on! Some monitors have more than one power button or switch - check to make sure they're all switched on.
  2. Check for disconnected monitor power cable connections. Your monitor might be working fine and your only problem may be a loose or unplugged monitor power cable. Note: A disconnected monitor power cable could be the cause of your problem if your monitor's power light is completely off.
  3. Check for disconnected monitor data cable connections. Again, your monitor might be turning on without a problem but no information can get to it because the cable that connects your monitor to your computer is disconnected or loose.
    Note: A disconnected monitor data cable could be the cause of your problem if your monitor's power light is on but is amber or yellow instead of green.
  4. Turn the monitor's brightness and contrast settings completely up. Your monitor might be showing information but you just can't see it because these display settings are too dark.
    Note: Most monitors today have a single onscreen interface for all settings, including brightness and contrast. If it turns out that your monitor isn't working at all then you'll likely not have access to this interface. An older monitor might have manual knobs for adjusting these settings.
  5. Test that your computer is working correctly by connecting a different monitor that you are certain is working properly to your PC. Your monitor may be working fine but your computer might not be sending information to it.
    • If the new monitor you connected does not show anything either, proceed to Step 6.
    • If the new monitor you connected does show information from your computer, proceed to Step 7.
    Important: When testing with the new monitor, make sure you use the data cable that came with it and not the one from your original monitor.
  6. Determine why your computer isn't sending information to your monitor. Since neither monitor works, you now know that the computer is not sending information to the monitor. In other words, you've proven that your computer is the reason that nothing shows up on your monitor.
    Chances are your original monitor is working fine.
  7. Test your original monitor with a monitor data cable that you know is working. It's possible that the monitor itself is working properly but it can't receive information from the computer because the cable that connects the monitor to the PC is no longer working.
    Note: If possible, test using the data cable from the monitor that you successfully tested with in Step 5. If not, purchase a replacement monitor data cable to test with.
    Note: The data cable on some older monitors are permanently connected to the monitor and are not replaceable. In these cases, you'll have to skip this step and proceed to Step 8.
  8. Replace the monitor.
    WARNING: A computer monitor is not a user serviceable device. In other words - do not open the monitor and attempt to repair it yourself. If you would rather have your dead monitor serviced instead of replaced then please let a professional do it.

PC running without anything showing on monitor.


Hi

Sounds like you have somehow deleted the driver for the monitor - - you need to plug another monitor into your PC - you can use the laptop you are using now - then you need to download the driver for the monitor again when you can see on the screen
