Question about Samtron 76df 17" CRT Monitor

2 Answers

No power to monitor

I am custom building a computer. My problem is, when I plug my monitor into the vga port the screen goes blank and the power light starts flashing. I have checked the motherboard with other devices to see if they get power and they all work (harddrive, floppy drive & dvd drive). The cmos is set in the normal position.

Is the Bios rom set to the on board settings for the video driver?? Did you allocate enough ram for your video driver in the Bios rom?? If all thats ok then the on board video driver is bad or not configured properly. Try disableling the On board video driver and stick a video driver card in and try and see if the monitors working correctly. Good Luck

Monitor goes blank.

Did you swap the monitors to see if the problem follows or stays at the same video output port since you have dual monitors set up? Need verify before opening up the monitor.

Computer monitor is blank. No signal is received at any time. Currently using motherboard VGA port. I tried 2 different monitors and 2 different VGA cables. I then installed a new graphics card but still...

Disconnect all PCI Cards and unplug power to all Drives then reboot your computer using the motherboard VGA port to see if the monitor will POST. If you still have a blank screen you most likely have a bad motherboard.

Screen Goes Blank

Ive seen this on other monitors. Look for a 1 and 2. Some monitors do NOT auto detect a signal, and this one might not. Look for a way to set the monitor from Digital input to VGA input. Try that and see.
