U need to first check if the signal cable is connected well.
check that the monitor is receiving power.
if so then maybe the vga card of the base unit is the one with the problem.  may need to put in another one to check if the oe ur having is the one with a problem. try that and get back to me.
thnx

Computer starts but moniter stays in sleep mode .. moniter works on different comp .. will adding a vid card to my comp fix this problem ??


Actually, Yes. It seems like you have answered your own question... Especially considering the monitor works on another computer.

Do you have another monitor to test on this computer?

Although another consideration could be if you recently installed or downloaded a program which may have changed your video output range to a setting your video monitor wont handle. If this is the case and you can start the computer in safe mode, this will allow you to go into your properties settings and change it back. This way, a new vid card is not req.

Good Luck

Turn on my computer, I can hear the fans, no beep noise upon starting. Screen says no signal found. I tried other monitor cables and monitor. No dice.


one of 2 things is happening a) if you have changed the cord and tried other moniters then the display port beit vga or dvi on you computer is broken you will either if you have agraphics card already installed then replace that but if you have no dedicated grapichs card you need to replace the mother bord
B) check your moniter to see if there is a source button if there is then push it to see if the image comes up repeat up to 3 times
ps: if you have a dedicated graphics card look at the back of you computer and if there are 2 different display ports be it dvi or vga (google image the terms "vga port" and "dvi port" to see what they look like) then plug it into the other on to see if the graphics card is broken

Computer turns on and fan starts running, but the monitor has nothing on it. All the cords are pluged in.


unplug monitor power cord wait for 5 minutes then turn computer off and re hook up monitor and computer if the moniter does not come on then yo have a defective video card, but you can test it with another monitor to be sure. normally if the monitor was bad it would say no signal.

I have an eMachine that the moniter will not turn on. I run a virus scan. But cannot get the moniter the stay on. the power light is on, the screen is not working.


The first thing we need to do is figure out if the problem is the computer or the monitor.

Have you got another computer around, a laptop will work too.

My comp does not show anything on the moniter??


If you have another monitor try it, if it works then you have a bad monitor. If a different monitor doesn't work in it then it could be the motherboard or CPU. If they are bad there is not test for that, the only real way to test them is to buy one piece at a time and see which one works. Also if your monitor has a power adapter check it. Sometimes those do die and not the monitor.

Problem with moniter


Techguru2009: You need to reset the bios to defaults and make sure all devices are connected before you turn your computer on. Make sure in the bios setup that the setting for the keyboard is usb support. If this does not work then you might have a faulty video card. Or you might need to reinstall the monitor in the operating system. If you are running windows operating system click on start button, administrative tools folder, select computer management. Alternative, click on the run command on the start menu and type compmgmt.msc. When the program starts click on device manager. On the right side of pane click on monitors. Find all monitors right click on each one and unistall all of them. When you restart your computer the operating system should recognize plug and play monitor and intall it automatically. I hope this method works for you.

Moniter flicker


Any monitor flickers at 60 hertz. The usual reason for being unable to use faster refresh frequencies is that the correct video card driver and/or monitor driver are not installed. Another possibility is that the resolution is set too high. Assuming Windows XP, right click on the background, choose "properties", settings tab, advanced button. Check to make sure your video card is named - the monitor is not as important but would certainly be helpful. If not, did out the CD's that came with them or download drivers from the manufacturer's website. On the other possibility, on the adapter tab, there ought to be a "list all modes" button so you can choose resolution and refresh rate at the same time. Your LCD monitor will be fussy about the resolution, so you may need several tries to get something that looks good and doesn't flicker.
