Question about Computers & Internet

My HP laptop monitor has gone crazy! The display is mostly purple and pink. No black at all! Blocky, rectangular shapes make up the display. The word "psychedelic" comes to mind... All video drivers are up to date. Any suggestions?

Compaq laptop green pink screen pixalted


One of the things is to hook it to another monitor and see if that still happens. If it does not then it is most likely the screen on the laptop. Not to worry though it could be the cable that connects the laptop motherboard to the screen. When you open and close the lid, it flexes the cable and the little wires in can break. The cable is not cheap though. One way to test this is to change how far the lid opens by flexing it open and closed to see if the screen changes. If it does then it is that cable.

Need diagram of the back of a emachines Desktop that shows where everything plugs in


what model do you have? most older emachines, gateway and dells are very similar...1) round purple ps2 to keyboard, 2) round green ps2 to mouse, 3) teal oblong serial 1 is older output to modem, 4) blue oblong vga output to monitor, 5) reddish long oblong is parallel port to printer........ all these are usually not used on newer models...others include a white oblong for dvi to monitor, or small rectangular for hdmi to monitor, as well as the traditional usb 2.0 and usb 3.0 for a multitude of input and output usages...... small round female ports are for sound.. pink for mic, green for main speakers, black for rear surround, gray for side surround, orange for center surround, and blue for line in....may also have an esata port (not used much) and a ethernet port for internet connection (looks like a slightly bigger telephone jack port).... might have a spdif (sony phillips digital interface) for digital audio.....hope this may help...

Moniter background is pink instead of white.


Hello gladyshbrown,
If the background is the only thing that is pink, then this will be as simple as changing your background color. the process is different depending on the operating system you are using, but if you right click on an empty space in your desktop chose either properties, or personalize. then choosing desktop.
If however this is not just affecting your background, meaning everything has a pink hue to it then it is most likely a hardware problem. To test this you can change to a different monitor, if the pink hue is gone then it is most definitely the monitor. However if the problem is the same on both monitors, then that would mean that your graphics card has gone bad. Many Pc's bought from dell, or hp have both video cards, and on board video. If this is the case with your Pc, you can move the monitor cable from where it is connected now, to the identical connection on the back of the computer. If you do switch to an on board video, please turn off your computer before plugging it in. This way when your computer is turned back on it will recognize that you are using a different video source. Most computers will do this automatically, however if it does not you will need to go into the "bios(cmos)" and enable onboard video. The option for bios is given as the computer first starts up. The key varies but it will be one of the following f1,f2,f10, or delete.
Good luck!

I have a dell dimension 3000, bought a new HP 2310E monitor with 3 ports. DVI, HDMI & display port. Told to buy a cable with VGA to connect to dell and DVI to connect to HP Monitor display port....


Hi sshorne9780,

I see that you are having a check input error on the Monitor/LCD that your are connecting to your Dell tower, please see steps below.

  • On your HP 2310E make sure that your HP is set to the input/source that you are using and make sure that you only use one type of video cable for the issue.
  • I see that you mentioned that you have a VGA cable and a DVI cable, you can only use one type of cable for a video connection.
  • VGA would be the Blue tipped cable connecting to the tower and going to the LCD monitor.
  • DVI this is a black cable connecting to a white port much bigger than a VGA port and is rectangular in shape unlike the VGA
  • moz-screenshot.pngmvincentc_34.jpg
  • and on your LCD monitor check the input type to see video from the tower.
  • everything seems to be OK you just need to change the input of your LCD monitor for the video to show up on the screen.
  • also if you are using HDMI for the video u will need to change the setting of your Audio and set HDMI as the Default to have Audio come out from the HDMI connection together with video, the HDMI viedo will automatically be detected as long as the LCD monitor's input is set to HDMI.
I hope that this will able to help resolve your concern.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,

I have a hp laptop. was on line and screen went black. and will not show again. it strats up sounds but black screen.what do i do


1) Do you have a VGA monitor that you can use for an external monitor?
{VGA monitor is also referred to as a CRT monitor. Looks like a small TV}

The back of the laptop, or side, has a VGA port. The VGA monitor is plugged into it.
{Laptop off}
Then the VGA monitor is turned on, and allowed to 'come to life'.

Now turn on the laptop. Press the Fn key down on the keyboard, and hold it down.
Now press the Monitor toggle over key.
Since you did not state the HP laptop Model Name, and Model Number, I can only give you generic guidance on this.

The monitor toggle over key has a monitor screen symbol on it. It will be one of the F keys.

(It's an External Monitor toggle key.
Press it one time and the display toggles over to an external monitor.
Press it again, and both the laptop LCD screen, and the external monitor have a display on them.
Press it once more, and the display goes back to the laptop's LCD screen )

If display shows up on the external monitor, you have a problem with the display of the laptop.

Primer:
An LCD screen cannot produce enough light by itself. It needs an additional light source.
A Backlight is used as an additional light source.

A Backlight is a CCFL.
Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp {Bulb}
Similar to the fluorescent lighting used in homes and businesses, but on a MUCH smaller scale.

{Average Backlight is 3 to 5 inches long, and half the diameter of a No.2 pencil.
The Backlight is located on one edge of the LCD screen}

An Inverter is used to provide power for the LCD screen, and the Backlight.

90 percent of the time the problem is the Inverter.

Inverters are relatively cheap, and if I knew the Model Name, and Model Number of your HP laptop, I could give you a link to HP Support where you could download the Service Manual for free.

This way you would have a manual to show, and detail how to replace the Inverter, and I could guide you.

I could also give links for your perusal for Inverters.

There is one more thing however.

HP Pavilion DV2000, DV6000, and DV9000 series laptops, have a graphics chip overheating problem.
The laptop comes on, the blue indicator LED lights light up, but the LCD screen is black.

This video explains why, shows a solution to fixing the problem, and details out a lot more than I am privileged to state here,

Have an HP monitor and have a white rectangular shaped box that pops up in the center of the screen constantly, in the center of the box it says OSD Lockout. Can not get it to go away. What do I do?


To resolve the issue you can hold the power button of the monitor until you get another message something similar to "OSD unlocked". Now if the problem continues, switch off the monitor and remove the power cable then let it sit for a couple of minutes to 5 and connect it again.

My screan is gone pink and purple what can i do


Check that the monitor cable is securely connected to the video card. Also restart the computer. Now just as the computer is starting up, is the text pink/purple? If so, it is likely that your monitor has failed. -Ravi Shanghavi

Hp w2007 why does the computer go pink everything that is green is now black


All the colours on the screen are created by "mixing" the 3 "primary" colours (red, blue, green).

Once the production of "green" ceases, anything that should be "100% green" becomes "100% black",
and every colour that indicates some percentage of "green" becomes a mixture of just RED and BLUE, i.e., various shades of PINK.

First, try the monitor on another computer (desktop or laptop). If the problem persists, it's time to replace the monitor. If the problem vanishes, it's the video-card in your computer that is not generating GREEN, or it is the "data" cable between your monitor and your computer that is not transmitting the GREEN request. So, you can try replacing the data-cable, or try replacing the video-card.

Got a used Compaq Pressario SR1303wm and need to set up correctly


Monitor into Small Blue connector at back.
If Mouse and keyboard are Round and not Rectangular in shape then that's a PS/2 Mouse and keyboard. Purple goes into Keyboard slot at back. Green goes into Mouse at back. Watch for the design as the pins inside each one need to be inserted accordingly.
If they ARE rectangular then that is a USB connection. On the back connect the keyborad and mouse to the top two. Again, only going to insert one ways.
