    Not a damn thang comes up on the monitor. Tried using the vga plug instead. Still nothing shows on the screen. The power button won't even cut the monitor off.

    same issue...plugging the power cord in give me 1 sec of blue on the power button, then a quick blue flash on the power button then off with no display coming on at all...

  • lilsecsi Oct 11, 2008

    For the last few days I have had to unplug the power cord from the monitor to get it to go on. The power button does nothing. Today, I unplug/plug the power cord in and I hear a humm for two seconds, get the Gateway logo on screen for one second then screen goes black.

On these it is usually the power/inverter board that causes this problem.
I repair quite a few fpd series models.

I have an AOC monitor and a Lenovo computer. The monitor comes on and says no signal when and the goes off. I have no idea how to change the resolution when I can't get the monitor to stay on.


When the computer is booting up, can you see the POST? No matter what resolution you set the computer to, you should at least see that if your computer is indeed working. If not, make sure your monitor is set to the correct input (DVI or VGA); there may be buttons for you to go into a menu system to select input. If you can see the POST but the monitor says "no signal" when Windows loads, then you'll need to go into SAFE MODE to change the resolution. To select that, press F8 just when Windows is beginning to load.

My HP Pavilion a6642p PC has a monitor but the monitior says no signal input


If it says no signal input, then your computer is not putting out a signal. Possibly a bad video card. Also can be a computer that never really boots up and passes the POST. Unless the POST completes, it won't send a video signal.

Your computer is not POSTing and the monitor has gone into standby mode as it is not receiving a signal from your computer. My published guide entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!! will get your computer working again!

Monitor doesnt switch on


Can you try another monitor?
Since you did try another video card (AGP). I posted (In you're other post), you have to make a bios adjustment under Advanced menu. Once you're P4SP-MX bios is set to boot to the AGP or set to Enable. The bios will no longer try to load the on-board VGA card. I am not being picky about the statement I am going to make ( so don't be offended). Monitor's only receive signal. They do not send signal to PC, just receive. The odds of two video cards not working is high. You did mention you have not heard P.O.S.T (A single beep), which is a test of the motherboard. There could be a loose connection in you're PC. I would remove the memory first. Clean the contacts with alcohol on a cotton swab & blow out the memory slots with canned air (allow time to dry). Than firmely reseat the memory. I would than re-check all data & power connectors within the PC, making sure all are securley connected. With respect to the AGP card, I would do the same. Remove, clean & reseat. Most older AGP's require additional power. Some use a power cable that is also used to power a floppy drive & others use a 4 pin molex (see link),
http://pinouts.ru/connector/4_pin_Molex_power_connector.shtml.
When you are in the bios & within the Advanced menu you may also need to set the bios to read you're AGP card to the correct speed. (EX: 1x,2x,4x). Page 2-19 in you're manual. Once all these checks & cleaning have been completed, try again. Boot the PC and hopefully you will see display on you're monitor.

Post here. Let me know how thing go. Don't assume anything, check all.
Luck!

Computer not working with Samsung LCD TV


Your PC isn't working, the "CMOS Checksum Error" is a BIOS error. It has nothing to do with the monitor.
You have to let the PC load the default settings and try to boot up, if the defaults doesn't work, you have to reconfigure the options in the SETUP program. To enter Setup press "Del" or "F2" in the POST screen.
