Hi Omar,

Do you have a built-in vga port on your desktop as well as a video card with a VGA slot? Make sure you are plugging it into the correct one. If there are two you will need to specify in the BIOS to disable the built-in VGA port or use the other one.

Also, if you only have one and the vga port is on a video card, turn off and unplug power to the computer then make sure the video card is fully seated in the correct slot.

Do you here a sequence of beeps? If your computer is beeping, your motherboard manual includes a list of "BEEP codes" that indicate what problem your motherboard is reporting which could be memory, cpu or video related.

Acer Aspire 5536 only gives black screen when i connect power supply


  • Nothing is more annoying than a monitor that refuses to turn on. Make sure your Acer monitor is plugged in to a functioning outlet. If it's plugged into a power strip, try replacing it with a new one or moving the plug to a different outlet. Ensure that both ends of the power cable are plugged in firmly and securely, and that the connection to the monitor is not loose.
Cable Issues
  • Your Acer LCD monitor will usually accept DVI and VGA inputs. If you have an older computer, a VGA cable should work fine. If it doesn't have a VGA port, you'll need to obtain an inexpensive DVI to VGA adapter at your local computer store. A DVI cable, however, is compatible with most modern computers and offers superior picture quality over VGA. Make sure you're using the cable that's compatible with your system, and that you have the proper conversion adapter, if necessary.

take off the monitor data cable from pc and try to turn monitor on if appears a smal square on the screen that mean your monitor is ok , and the black screen reason maybe data cable or vga card.

Nec Multisync LCD 195VXM+ black screen after turning on computer


I'm thinking your video card is sending a signal the monitor doesn't recognize.
You'll need to start the computer and hit F8 until you get the black and white menu. Choose the VGA mode and it should work well enough for you to adjust the refresh rate or the resolution to get the monitor to work

My psp was dropped and now the little green light comes on but the sreen stays black, nothing happens. five or so seconds go by and the light turns off what is my problem, any ideas need help please


Inside the psp is a very small ribbon cable that connects your screen to a printed circuit board. Sounds to me like you most likely need to reinsert that cable to get your screen back up. If you open it...be absolutely certain you know what you are doing! Most connections are very small and you will need jewelers screwdrivers to open it. Otherwise bring it in for repair.
Best Luck.

Make sure you don't have two video cards on your machine and have plugged into the wrong one.
Failing that, open the case and make sure the card is plugged firmly in its slot (do this with the power off).

Monitor signal cable troubleshooting


hi, there is some loose contact in the connection. Take out the cable end from the VGA socket and check the pins inside the socket for any bend inside the socket. Reconnect it, tight the connector with the socket bolts. If not solved, try for any loose solder or wire breake.
Thank you
