    we have not changed the resolution on the computer. The monitor worked fine with it for 3 years and just started cycling colors. May just be time for a new monitor.

If available, try a different monitor. If the different monitor works properly, then it sounds like your monitor is just worn out.

The computer may be outputting an unsupported resolution. Attach the other monitor and change the screen resolution to something lower (800x600 or 1024x768) To do this, right click on the desktop, select "properties", go to the settings tab, and drag the "screen resolution" slider to the left. Press "advanced" and go to the "monitor" tab, set the refresh rate to 60hz if it's not already there. Press OK, Apply, then press "yes" to keep settings. Now attach the other monitor and see if it works.

    Try my solution before assuming the monitor is bad. Sometimes a windows update can change the resolution or refresh rate, especially if the graphics driver is updated.

This can be a problem with the video card or the monitor itself:
Things that you can try:
1.Try to connect the monitor to another CPU and check if it will also have the same problem to conclude the monitor is bad
2.If *********** has a built in video card try connecting the monitor to it asuming that you have installed a additional video card and if *********** board has a built in video on it, because if the monitor work to the built in video the problem is the video card so you can have it replace.

Hope that helps.......

I think the problem is in your graphic card.
If you have another monitor try to connect it, if that monitor do the same then you have the problems in your graphic card.

Hp pavilion 6648c no signal to monitor


Make sure the cable is in good on the back of the computer and on the monitor. If the cables are in good, then either the monitor is bad or the video card is bad. Try using another monitor on the computer. If the other monitor gets a No Signal then the Video Card is bad. If the other monitor shows a display and works, then the original monitor is bad.

Monitor was in standby mode, computer was on. Now it shows no signal and when we try using the menu button (2) it flashes white, black, red, green, blue then a teal color.


the monitor is not receiving a signal from the computer which is why the multi coloured bars are showing. Ensure the lead is connected and is connected to the correct port of your computer. If it is connected correctly then either your graphics card is faulty or the lead, or monitor is

Ok when i turn on my aoc monitor colors like blue green red white pop up i can never use my desktop


I would suggest that you try another monitor. If the monitor continues to light up with these colors and you do not see your computer desktop, then I would tend to think that your computer may have a problem with the video card or driver. Do you get a message on your montor with words like "no connection" or "No signal". If so, this means that the monitor is getting no video signal from you desktop. Try disconnecting your monitor plug and removing power from the monitor in an attempt to reset the monitor. Try also to turn off and unplug your computer. Leave the computer unplugged for about 10 minutes and start it up again. This may reset your computer. If you monitor video cable will disconnect from the monitor, you may want to get a new cable. These cable do go bad sometimes and are available and inexpensive on Ebay.com

Try these ideas and let me know how you do.

If you found this answer helpful, please remember to leave positive feedback. If you need more assistance, let me know.

Thank You,

My hp pavilion a430n is not turning on. even though i pressed the power button the light wont even turn on. it is truly annoying and the screen says something about the power supply and green, red, blue...


I suggest to open your computer and unplug your power supply and look for the color green and black cord which plugged from your motherboard. Then find a piece of wire and short the color green and black wire to test if your power supply is working and plug to your power socket. And check your electronic parts (capacitor) near at your processor, it might your capacitor blown out.

My dell inspiron 530 shows a block with red, white, green, and read, can't get to the my programs????


That "red white green and blue" block is a color pattern tester. that means the monitor is on, but is not receiving a signal, so its running tests. If your monitor has Digital input and VGA input, you may just need to switch inputs. Look for 1 or VGA if youre using the blue hook up. look for 2 or digital or dvi if youre using the larger white hook up. Some monitors also have 'auto detect'. If you are in "auto detect' bbut the color box is still there, then your monitor is not receiving video signal from the computer. It could indicate a bad cable or no signal being sent by the machine. If you try another monitor, you can see if the machine is working. I would try a monitor setting for VGA-1 first, since thats most common.

Main screen only has three boxes BGR


The monitor is telling you it's not getting a signal from the computer. The message is displayed to show the monitor is on and can display an image, but the computer is not sending video. Probably the computer is not starting up, or there has been a failure of the video card. You'll need to check into the cause.

I have an HP Pavilion 6535 computer using Windows 98SE. It was fine but now when I turn it on, the power comes on (has start up sounds and cd drive light) but there is no green light on near the start...


Listen for the number of beeps, when you turn on the pc. The beep code should be able to tell you what is wrong. It's possible that the power supply or the video card is bad.
