HP LP3065 monitor turns off and won't turn back on; is this a Windows problem

It doesnt sound like a windows problem. A simple test for this is to unplug the vga or hdmi cable from the monitor then turn it on if it has power it should say no signal. Also try either another power cable to the monitor or change the fuse. Hope this helps.

My keyboard wont type at all.. it is a ibm thinkpad

The cable to your motherboard is probably loose inside of the notebook. This happened to my Sony notebook last year. Shop around to see how much local computers shops charge to reconnect the keyboard ribbon cable. It's not a terribly hard fix, you just have to be patient and keep track of all of the screws!

Won't charge

This happened to me last week. It turns out that my power cable had a short in it. I had to buy a Universal power cord at Walmart. It was about 78.00 but well worth it. This also happened to me last year with my Dell Laptop...same issue and same resolution...I hope this helps.

My gateway desktop PRB 510S, if I turn it off and unplug it or electricity goes off, the computer wont start back again. Wont do anything. No lights no fan, nothing. Then 5 to 10 minutes after I turn it on...

Try connecting a different power supply to it. If the same situation repeats, then it's an internal (motherboard) problem. If the problems go away, then the power supply needs to be replaced.

6 years... I'm surprised the PSU even lasted that long! The power supply is the cheapest part of the PC and usually one of the first parts to fail. Don't worry, a replacement power supply is not too expensive. Good luck!

TV wont turn on

I have one of these TV's for my computer monitor. One of the micro capicitor chips have went bad. Plug in a USB cable into the service port (from a laptop or desktop computer) and press the power button. The TV will power on. Remove the USB cable from the service port. You will have to do this every time you want to turn it on.

You would have to get a new controller board inside the TV to fix it, and it's not really worth it. From some forums, they go bad just as quick. The issue hasn't been resolved

No picture on monitor 997M

One reason that this is happening could be that it is on Power saving mode. This happens when the LCD monitor detecs an incorrect timing then thats the time that the LCD goes blank and the power botton starts to blink.

what you need to do is to turn the computer off. Unplug cables attach to the LCD make sure it is also off, once done press the power botton for a couple of 30secs to a minute and then release. After doing so re-connect all the cables and make sure that both ends is tight and secure once everything is ok turn the computer on same with the monitor to check if it solves the problem.
