By working fine, I assume you mean the monitor goes into its test/diagnostic displays. If that is the case, most likely your roommate has hit upon more or less the correct deduction.
Two possibilites should be attempted before assuming to much more tho, one being the connector from the monitor to the computer, check for bent pins on the connector that goes into the computer. Do not worry about what appears to be a missing pin, that is normal for a SVGA connector, only look for bent pins. If you have one of those, it will have to straightened out CAREFULLY with a small metal tube as exists in some ball point pens or a small tweezer, but please be careful as they are very sensitive to over-pressure.
If a bent pin is not the cause then try reseating the video adapter card in the computer, meaning open the case ( with power off and computer unplugged ), take the screw out that holds the video card in place, pull out the video card and immediately place the card back into its slot on the motherboard. Do not try placing the card in another slot until you see if this works. put the adapter holding screw back into its former position and screw it back into place. Be careful that the adapter is properly seated in its slot, not doing so will result in NO VIDEO or even much worse conditions, such as a possible short on the motherboard, resulting in a fried motherboard. I don't think you want that. If this doesn't fix your situation then chances are as your roommate suggested the video adapter card may be bad, but there is one more possible suggestion that might just work, and that is if the video adapter is a PCI card, you may be able to place the video adapter into another PCI slot on the motherboard, above or below its present location. In a few cases that might help you ( assuming you are dealing with a PCI adapter as there is only one AGP slot on a motherboard. ). Never remove or replace components with power applied or even with the power plug still plugged into the wall socket. Newer motherboard built since 2000 will often still have some voltage applied to them from the power supply if the unit is still plugged into the wall socket.
Come back to me and let me know how it goes. Would appreciate it.

Viewsonic vg2230wm - the screen is blank when the computer first boots. I have to turn the monitor power switch on/off several times before the screen turns on, then it is fine.


Check your VGA (Visual Graphic Adapter) connector from your C.P.U (Central Processing Unit) to your monitor if it is intact. If it is intact , replace the VGA cable first. Then if the problem still persist check for the VGA driver in the device manager if it is correctly installed. If the problem persist try and send mail to me on greatengineerid@hotmail.com
Cheers.

Hi,

First make sure that all the cords are connected properly from the back of the CPU to your Monitor.I suggest you to unplug all the cords of the CPU and then plug them back in after 10min. and make sure they are all connected tightly.Next check if the power cord connected to the Monitor is attached tightly.

If you still face the problem then you will have to replace it with a new power cord whih connects the CPU to your Monitor.It is black in colour.

Hello,
May be the problem comes from the Cpu.
Try to see if the cable from the monitor is firmly connected to the cpu.
One thing more may be the vga card is having problem.
Try to test the screen with another Cpu. Or the cpu with another monitor.
The amber mode is normal as the screen is not receiving signal from the cpu.
At times the memory chip also report this problem (no display or sleep mode)
Do hear any beep sound or any other Errors??
OK try this

You can also try this... turn off your cpu..remove the cable from your video card.....Open the housing....remove your video card from your motherboard... clean the contact surface of the video card with moisten cloth.... after cleaning...connect the video card to the motherboard...attached the cable to your video card.. close the housing and try to boot again...

I hope that work.. if not my suggestion is you try your video card in other computer, try also the monitor to other computer.. to see which one failed.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.

Dell E171FPb monitor turns on, but that's it


Hi Letneper,

Hope this will give you hints. Some monitors have standby mode or screen saver feature and or self test feature when not connected to video input of your PC or CPU. Except this problem did not occur at first use. You can turn this off like other monitors manually at OSD (on-screen display) settings if available. No more no less if it works fine with PC or CPU on then there's nothing to worry.

Best regards,
Rosener Guyano
