    display will not remain on despite power being there.

    Message briefly flashes on screen indicating to "check signal cable"



    I've checked all connections and power source appears to be working.

    My moniter is doing the same thing. My system went down a couple of weeks ago, & i had to reboot it & now the moniter keeps blinking and does not play the screensaver when not in use. I am using Windows Vista & it worked before! Please help me.

This seems to be a problem of the Invertor or powersupply board.If you are technically able check the boards visually,look for bulging discoloured capacitors. Try replacing these components it may solve your problem.
Please provide feedback and rate the solution.

    "check signal cable" means either display card of cpu is not giving signal or signal cable is bad.Try monitor with cable on another working cpu or laptop to determine what is defective.If monitor does not display signal on another cpu with known working signal cable,the interface board inside the monitor could be defective.

On startup there is no display on screen


I am assuming you have a laptop. There are a wide range of "no displays". problems. Here are a few:

1. On start up you have three lights on the front of your computer.
2. Power Light. Is it solid whit?
3 Battery light. It does not light up unless you have battery problems
4. Hard drive light. Is it blinking?
5. It is very important that it is blinking
6. If it is blinking you are having problems with your video assembly.
7. If it is not blinking, you have problems with you operating system.
8. Please advise to narrow down the problem

Blinking power button


It could also be because there is a problem with the display controller in the computer. Try to hook up another monitor to this computer and see if it comes up. If it does not work with another monitor, the computer will need servicing. If the display does come up, the Samsung monitor will need service. Good Luck
