    That is still as tight as the day it was bought so I know that's not the problem because I tried that already. Any other solution?

    The problem seems to be similar in that when booting the screen comes on briefly (by bruiefly I mean a couple of seconds) and then disappears. It will not stay on continuously, Any Ideas?

Try tightening the cable running from your Monitor to your computer.

    This could be a problem with your graphics card then unfortunately. Do you know what graphics card you are using? Updating the driver could fix this. The problem might be that the card is intermittent, therefore not sending a signal to your monitor. Post back more details so we can figure this out.

Dell Dimension 3000 Video problem


There may be a problem with your windows installation. Search Google for Hirens boot CD, it is a free download and should contain a live XP installation. When you turn on the computer tap the appropriate button to reach the boot menu, then insert the CD and select your CD drive. Once booted it should display a live XP.
Alternatively you may have your monitor set to an incompatible resolution. If tapping F8 won't display the advanced boot menu then try finding an auto setup on your monitor or change the resolution using the monitors controls. If the advanced boot menu does display then select low resolution mode.
Hope this helps,

I changed the screen resolution from 1024 768. while booting the monitor goes to power saver mode and displays "Out of Range 53.7KHZ to 60Hz. My OS is Win XP sp 3,


If the monitor is able to display the video after the computer boots, it may be something that you will have to live with.

But, you may be able to specify a different refresh rate based on the ability of your video card. Right click on the desktop, choose properties, then settings, and advanced button. On the new window, click on Adapter, then click on the Display All Modes button. The default for 1024x768 resolution is 60Hz, but your video card may offer another frequency which may be compatible with the monitor.

If you are unable to see anything after the computer boots, restart in safemode, then make the changes.

Is this an older monitor? 1024x768 is an industry default mode / setting. I am surprised that the monitor doesn't like it.

Hp 6735s was used last night and shut down properly but this morning turning it on the system continue booting without displaying anything on the screen which makes it blank / black........ Please I need...


If there is a display switch in the functions on the keyboard (most likely will look like a laptop monitor or a computer monitor on the keyboard). Press the function key and the button associated with that and wait 3 to 4 seconds (you may have to press it multiple times) If you have anything in the vga slot, then it may think a monitor is plugged in and won't display the laptop screen.
If none of the above work, then maybe your computer is having a systematic failure, or the screen connector is loose.

I have installed a new monitor on my desktop (windows xp) but the message appears 'Reboot and select proper boot device, or insert Boot Media' .. I have tried out the new moitor on my laptop and is working...


First check that all your CD/DVD and Floppy drives are empty. If there's a disk in one of them, take it out and reboot.

If there isn't a disk in one of the drives, switch on as normal and watch the screen, at the bottom you'll get a a message saying something like "Press F2 for boot options or "DEL" for setup".

Then it'll disappear quick as lightning before you get chance to do anything.

So re-boot again, this time pressing the boot options button repeatedly, so you don't miss your chance.

When successful a screen will say choose where you want to boot from. Choose HDD 0 (Your first hard drive) and press enter.

If you want to you can press the DEL key and go into the bios and set up your boot options.

I would suggest you set the boot order to

1) HDD
2) CD
3) Floppy Drive.

No picture on monitor


When you boot, press F8 repeatedly and immediately until you get the boot options screen. Choose boot into safe mode.

Because windows does not install all the drivers - including your display drivers - in safe mode, you should be able to change them there.

Inspiron 4000 problems


First, can it boot into BIOS setup? This is DEL, Esc, F1, F2, or whatever key your user manual instructs; press the requisite key immediately after pressing the power switch. Second, can it boot from an emergency recovery disk from the floppy, or a boot CD from the CD drive?
