Two possiblities

1. Bad cable (VGA and DVI cables go bad all the time)
2. Video card has bit the dust - and you would need a new video card - if the video is direct on the motherboard, you can buy a seperate video card - otherwise you would have to replace your whole motherboard.

Try using/buying a different monitor vga/dvi cable first though.

What causes my computer Xp monitor to turned OFF in the middle of my internet surfing, but my computer microprocessor is still ON.


Either the monitor is defecive or the video driver card in the PC/computer is defective, the only way to really know for sure is to hook the monitor up to another PC and see what happens.

Turned computer on and monitor instantly goes to sleep,also cant turn off the computer using button.have to use switch on power supply


Try this, unplug everything from the other board except the main hard drive, power connections, and monitor. if it does not come up, remove ram cards, leaving one stick. try again, if it is still bad swap ram sticks. If after all of this it still does not work you have a bad motherboard or processor

My dell gx260 ligth come green if i turn it on but for a few mins time it turn orange why


Do you mean the monitor's power light starts green and then turns orange when you turn it on? Most monitors will go to a power saving mode when they do not get a signal from the computer.

The Dell GX260 has a green power light when on. When the computer is off, the light is off. If it is green and blinking, then the computer is in a power saving mode.

Diagnosis: start with the obvious: is the monitor cable plugged into both the computer and the monitor (if not permanently connected to the monitor)? Are you connected to the active port? (You can add a video graphics card in most desktops. The motherboard video port usually needs to be disabled to use the card ports. If you plug in the monitor cable to the disabled port, it won't work.) Is the monitor set to the correct input? (This applies if the monitor has several ports. In that case, there will be a Source or Input button on the monitor.) Is the computer on? The GX260 has the power button on the front. (Other computers have the power button on the top.) There is also the power supply switch on the back which needs to be on.

Next try a different data cable between the monitor and the computer (if you can). Try a different monitor. If a second monitor works, than the monitor has a damaged main board. If the second monitor doesn't work, then the video graphics adapter has probably failed. Replace the add-on card, if in use, then boot in the safe mode to remove the old graphics driver. Then install the correct driver for the graphics adapter.

Note: the computer and the monitor should both be off when you connect the cables. Then turn on the monitor first and set it to the correct source before turning on the computer.)

I hope this helps.

My screan is gone pink and purple what can i do


Check that the monitor cable is securely connected to the video card. Also restart the computer. Now just as the computer is starting up, is the text pink/purple? If so, it is likely that your monitor has failed. -Ravi Shanghavi

No output to monitor, light turns yellow


check to make sure the Video cable is still firmly seated on both computer and monitor. Next the case may need to be opened up to assure the graphics card has not been unseated from the main board.

Also make sure no pins have been bent or disturbed on each Item.

Turn off the computer and monitor. Disconnect the monitor. Turn on the monitor. You should get some indication the monitor is on, if not it is probably dead.

If the monitor seems to be on, try to enter the menu by using the buttons or knobs on the monitor. If the menu comes up, the monitor is probably good and you have a computer problem.

If you think the monitor is bad, hook it up to an operational computer. If it works, you definitely have a computer problem; if not the the monitor is definitely dead.

Either way try to have the problem resolved under the warranty.

Solution: The following is monitor troubleshooting. If your monitor receives a proper display until it gets into Windows 3.x, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows ME, or Windows XP please refer to document CH000192.
Monitor is not on Make sure the monitor is on. If no power light (green or orange light) is seen on the monitor display try pressing the power button until it comes on. If no light comes on after several attempts continue to below connections not connected properly.
Computer is asleep If your computer monitor was on and you stepped away from the computer and upon returning it was black it's likely that the computer is asleep. Try moving your mouse, clicking the mouse buttons, and/or pressing any key (space bar) on the keyboard to wake it up.
Connections not connected properly Make sure that you are connecting the monitor to the back of the computer in the 15 pin (illustrated below) or older computer 9 pin connection.
video.gif If the computer is properly plugged in, make sure it's getting getting power.
If you are not receiving power from a known working wall outlet and if the power cord is removable, replace it with the one connected to the computer and attempt to power on the monitor again. If the monitor still does not get power or it is not removable, it is recommended that the monitor be replaced or serviced at a local TV / Computer repair shop.
If the monitor is receiving power, check the status light.
If the light is orange or flashing ensure that the monitor is not in a suspend mode by moving the mouse or pressing a key on the keyboard. If the computer does not get a display by moving the mouse or touching the keyboard, turn off the computer and monitor and reconnect the data cable from the back of the computer, and if removable, the back of the monitor. Turn the computer back on; if you still encounter the same issue, continue reading through the other possibilities.
Monitor settings are not correct Ensure that the brightness and contrast is turned up or attempt to adjust the brightness and contrast. If adjusting the brightness or contrast has no affect on the monitor continue reading through the other possibility.
Does the computer beep when it is powered on and/or does it appear that the computer has activity? If the computer does not beep or beeps abnormally it is possible that the computer itself is experiencing a hardware issue or is exhibiting .

First make sure all cables are tight and secured, and try pressing the Auto Button on your Syncmaster? It's for auto configuration.

If problem persist and if possible can you try using another known normal monitor/LCD? Also try your monitor using another cpu or laptop.

HP desktop monitor problem


hi try this ,,,
  1. Ensure the video cable is connected (and connected to the correct video port).
  2. Turn off the monitor using the monitor's power button and then restart the monitor.
  3. Cycle the power on the monitor as follows:
  4. Turn off the monitor. The power light on the monitor should be off. Leave the computer turned on.
  5. Unplug the power cord.
  6. Wait 5 seconds.
  7. Plug in the power cord.
  8. Press the power button on the monitor to turn on the monitor. One of two things happens:
    1. The image from the computer displays on the monitor and you can use the computer again. This indicates that the monitor was unable to detect that the computer had awakened from suspend mode. Turn the monitor off when it is not being used or disable suspend mode. For some computers, updating the BIOS corrects these types of suspend problems.
    2. The power light on the monitor comes on but the screen displays one of the messages again. The monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer that it can detect and use. Continue using these steps to adjust the Windows display resolution to the Monitor's native (default) resolution
    3. Connect the monitor to another computer that you know is working to determine if the monitor should be serviced or replaced:
      • If the monitor displays an image from another computer, you know that the monitor works. Troubleshoot the video connection and graphics adapter on the computer.
      • If the monitor remain blank when connected to another computer, the monitor signal processing hardware may be bad. The monitor should be repaired or replaced.
      hope it will work for u .. little_angel
