About three weeks ago I bought a new Windows Vista (RM make) computer, and a Philip's 190B Monitor. I am very happy with it and it has worked very well for this period of time.
However, today when I turned it on, it went through the usual loading procedures (the RM insignia comes up, as does BIOS Settings in the bottom right corner) and after this the screen goes black apart from a small white underscore that flashes continuously in the top left corner instead of the Windows Vista welcome board appearing. I have left the monitor alone for substantial periods of time yet nothing happens aside the flashing line in the top left corner.
Any help would be welcome.
If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. :)

Re: Philips Unknown Problem
Does that white under score look like an possible issue with the moniter? I'm curious to know if there is some compatibility issue...such as, you need to change your graphic card, etc....resolution?
Do you have any other monitors you can try to hook up to your computer? That might help you decifer if its the monitor or the computer/softwards issue...

I could be completely 'out to lunch.' but - what are you doing with the Phillips? Is it connected to Dish? We have Dish. An antique system. I called them a couple of days ago, because I was taping something, and the screen went to a violent pink. The next day, they came out, and replaced Everything. Dish, box, and remotes. They understood that the old sytem was breaking down. Hope you find a solution. These toys - we depend on. Then they implode. Annoying, in the extreme.

FAQ from Philips(Ref. Link) Question: Can I use my webcam with Windows 7 or Vista ? Answer:- At the time this webcam was designed, Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems did not exist yet. Unfortunately, the internal hardware of the webcam does not match the requirements of these operating systems. Therefore we cannot provide a software upgrade (driver upgrade) to support Windows Vista or Windows 7. We apologize that we are not able to support you in this matter.
Too bad Philip do not provide the drivers if your are Using Vista or Win 7 or any x64Bit system.
nice anecdote, fixing things from far is not easy, a t.v.-technician right in front of the actual screen could tell more- but they don't come for free, alas. hope that people's idea about problem solving lead up to you fixing a problem yourself - hey this here is for free - to sort wxperts, one needs feedback! thx alot
