Dear Lindsay:

This could be hardware issue with the monitor. However please contact the monitor manufacturer support if it is in warranty you can get it replaced. Usually monitor come with up to five years warranty.

Regards.

Hi, I have a Princeton LCD17D flat screen monitor and the screen keeps going black after 20 seconds or so. I power up my PC and it turns on then black. If I turn it off and on again the same thing occurs....


It's getting power, it's just not getting signal from the data cable. The cord that connects to the monitor, (not the power) is typically the reason it is going into standby mode. This can also happen if your graphics card driver is missing on your operating system, but you said you tried the monitor on another machine, so I narrowing it down to most likely be the data cable. Try another cable.

My computer screen is black and I can't get it to turn on


Sorry to ask such a silly question but are you sure you have the power cable in the back of the monitor tightly? Sometimes it feels as if it has gone in, but it needs an extra push. Also, at times it may have gone in upside down, which won't help at all.

And for the bonus points ... is the other end plugged into a wall socket, UPS box, or other a/c provider? If so, make sure it is in tightly there, as well, and that the a/c is providing power; a circuit breaker may have tripped for that socket, so if you have other gear plugged in and that stuff is working, then you know the socket is not the problem.

One more thing is to be sure the cable from the computer to the monitor is plugged in properly at both ends. Sometimes, the OPC end looks like a Serial adapter plug, and if you plug it into the wrong adapter, you will not get any images, nor will you get any warning.

Finally, depending upon how old the monitor is, it is entirely possible that the internal power supply is dead. If that is the case, you may need to get a new monitor.

Good luck,
-a.

My screen has shrunk, there is a black frame around it that i cant get rid of. Iv tried changing the resolution and re-starting my computer nothong has helped


Use the OSD (On Screen Display) controls on your monitor to change the "vertical-size' and "horizontal-size" of your picture.

Then, try a different monitor, to see if your monitor is the problem, or if your video-card is the problem.

CPU set


Hi

That will depend on the available socket for the CPU set that you are going to purchase, what type of cable are you using from the monitor? Usually its VGA cable, most CPU set has VGA port.

Check available ports on your monitor so that you will have an idea what CPU set will you get so that your Monitor can be connected.

Hope this helps

My computer wont start


Does wire = power cable?

Try and:

- reconnect all canles to the correct slots on the PC
- Make sure power cable is firmly in computer and socket
- Check powerbars and sockets have power going to them (!)
- Change power cable to a known working one and/or change the fuse in the plug

If you are unsure which cables go where, please mail me of the back of the Pc and I will tell you where they go.
