My guess, and I only know this because I had the same thing happen to me, is that your monitor is defective/is a dead monitor. You should contact the store where you purchased the computer, as it is probably still under warranty, or contact the computer manufacturer, and let them know what happened. I am alomst sure you have nothing to worry about, and that either the computer manufacturer will guide you to where you can take the broken monitor for repair/replacement, or the store itself where you bought the computer, will take back the whole computer system and exchange it for you for another one. if you do take the monitor to be repaired, be prepared to just have to wait, because usually they don't repair monitors, but rather just send it in the the manufacturer, and the manufacturer will then send a new one to them, and then they will contact you and let you know when to come pick it up. Or, if there is no third party that you go through, the computer manufacturer will guide you as to the details and steps ypu have to take to send them the monitor yourselves, and then they will in turn ship you another one, or repair that one. But don't worry, because all costs should be covered under your warranty. May I also suggest that if you do have to send it back to them, it might be wise for you to go to a cheapy computer store, one that just sells used computers and monitors, and get you a cheap $10.00 or $20.00 one, just to use until your original one is repaired/replaced. Thanks

Start with the easy stuff first. Make sure the power connector is firmly seated both on the back of the computer and plugged into the wall. You haven't mentioned any odd beeps the computer makes when you boot so i'm guess it's not the video card. if it is a pci card unplug it then plug it back in... on the motherboard. make certain it is seated properly.

that's a start.

Hp w2408h monitor flashing red green black blue white


These blinks (flashes) are fault indication. By the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. Count the blinks occur at one time switch ON, carefully. Do it once again, and make sure about the number of blinks. If the flashes are continious, non-stop, the main system control IC should be suspected. If you wish to get more details, check the site linked here. It has blinking codes detail to many brand TVs. Pull up older posts. Check the site in 'Mosaic' view. It will make search easy. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

While window first starts (loads) their are 2 perfreated lines that go all the way across the screen on the monitor. Once the user choice screen opens they disapear never to happen again till i start up...


may help to reset the monitor to optimal settings, use the auto adjust feature. also, test if the same thing happens in case another monitor is connected to the computer. If it does, the cause is related to the computer. Updating the video card/controller driver and for integrated video controller, updating the computer BIOS can help.

Hi, Im using HP w2408h monitor..its desktop...My baby scratched on the screen with the blade and there is full of scratches..nbut the computer is working fine..Am I able to repair the glass screen alone...


There are screen cleaners which are available at all laptop/PC spares which can be used to clean and wipe out the scraches,. However if the scratches are deep into the LCD then it cannot be undone and you may need to change the LCD if the vision is too blurred.

When I power up the HP m8457c desktop computer the monitor displays the error message "no communication from computer" and goes into a sleep mode.


This is telling you you have no video signal. Now you need to figure out just what the problem is. Could be the video card or any other piece of hardware in your computer. My bet goes with video card or power supply. Unhook the other stuff and try to boot with a "bare bones" system--that is, using only your video card, CPU, and memory. If you get video, try hooking up the other stuff until you find the bad part.

HP screen - USB ports on screen not working


Did they ever work or is it new? You need to connect the USB hub to a USB port on the computer.

Take a look at this, figure 13 shows how it is to be connected:
