Acer Flat Screen Monitor Goes Black After 10 Sec


I tried to install an acer flat screen monitor to my dell laptop. Flat screen work for 10s then black. I have a dell inspiron e1405 with xp. When i hit fn key plus f8 flat screen shows for 10sec then goes black. My laptop screen is fine just trying to add the flat screen. Any ideas why the flat screen only shows my laptop screen mirror for 10sec? How can i make it work normally and have the flat screen on for all time instead of 10sec?

Tft Flat Screen Digimate Monitor Issue

I don't no too much about monitors and im hoping some one here with more knowledge would be able to tell me the problem i have. Well to get to the point im using a tft flatscreen digimate monitor only had it for about 2 months and this morning i turned it on and noticed its made certain types of the color red and orange fuzzy and shake. If you notice around the edges of the shark its rather pixelated and well i cant explain it. How ever i dont get this while playing games unless the whole screen is one set color , such as when the game loads and the whole screen turns black, then i will get a big line down the middle and be able to see big pixels. Thanks for yout time and i await your reply.

Pc Monitor Without A Video Signal - Black Screen Bios

Upon starting my computer, it doesn't always start, it just sits with a black screen not loading the bios and the monitor claims there's no video signal. It's been like this for less than a week now consistantly. So, i'll reboot and everything is suddenly fine and the bios loads up and windows is good to go. Last week i added a gigabyte wireless card to my pc which i believe might have caused some some problems. I took the card out yesterday and i haven't seen the problem comeback so far. I'm really baffled as to why something like this would happen whether it's just the card or if something relating to my motherboard is bad, like the pci slot. The wireless card worked fine and everything. What should my next step be to figuring this out, should i put the wireless card back in? Any tests i can run to see if a component is going bad?

Computer specifications:

Msi k8ngm-v board
Athlon 64 3000+
Xfx 6600gt
2 512mb gskillz ram sticks
Audigy se soundcard
Gigabyte gn-wp01gs wireless card
Seasonic 330watt psu
80gig seagate hd

Dell Lcd Monitor With Black Screen Problem

19" dell lcd monitor with black screen - what is the electronic cause of this monitor problem?

Answer:- usually, it's the backlight, which can be confirmed by shining a torchlight into the darkened dell monitor screen. You might see a dim silhouette of the desktop area if the computer has booted up. Replacing the backlight should solve the problem. The other reason (electronics) could be dry joints on the monitor's inverter board. This can be the case if your dell monitor has a bright & blank screen. Dry joints cause voltage drops, which can result in a black screen.

Dell Computer With Flat Screen Or A Fat One

If you had to choose a dell computer, would you buy a flat screen or a fat one with extra material in the back? I would buy a flat screen because it will be less heavy and won't take up as much space as fat ones. I once had a fat one with extra material and it was a night mare trying to carry it up and down the stairs because it was in my bedroom. When it broke i wish i has a flat screen, but now i have a laptop (flat screen) and it's allot better.

Computer Displays Post Screen Then Went To Black Screen

My computer has been running sluggish for about two days now. Was searching the web the other day and computer just came to a halt and froze. So i rebooted the computer and then it wouldn't start up. It displays the post screen but after that it went to a black screen with a white bar at the bottom of the screen. Looked like a progress bar. Rebooted again but same thing. Popped in the os disc and tried a check desk and fdisk and it came up with some errors. Got to stage 4 of 5 on them and then stopped at 50% for hours. So today i started it up again and it finally booted to the windows logo and then finally to desktop. Took around 30mins to do so. Hard drive light indicator is always on for the most part and takes forever to load applications. Okay, i guess my question is this about to be a hard drive failure? Never had one so clueless of what it is but would think it would have something to do with the hard drive. Also before it froze the other day, applications started being really slow. For example it took 10mins just for the save file dialog box to pop up to save a file.

Screen Flash Black For A Second

While at my desktop, in ie, or almost any other program my screen will flash black for 1 second then go back to whatever the original image was. Everyhing "seems" to lock up when it flashes in that you can't see the cursor move or "seem" to press any keys but it is actually just not reporting those actions to the display (they are happening but just not being displayed). Here is my hardware. I've tried 3 different display drivers but i'm going to see if a standard vga driver has the same behavior.

When Xp Loads Screen Goes Black

I turned my laptop on last night to find the display totally corrupted (even during boot-up). There were no warning signs or prior system changes, it just broke. Whenever it boots now, it does one of a few things; - screen is corrupt from the start, as xp loads screen goes black, system sits there with a black screen. - Screen is corrupt from the start, as xp loads screen goes black, system reboots itself, lather rinse repeat. - Screen is fine on boot, xp loads fine, but x minutes into the session the screen corrupts and freezes (could just be the screen or could be the whole laptop, i can't tell)

What i really want is someone to pat me on the head and say that it'll sort itself out and that i don't need to replace a 1000 laptop, but i'm thinking either the motherboard or gfx card has gone. Can anyone help me figure out what has caused this and where (if possible) i can get the spares to fix it.

Black Screen On Boot

I'm having problems with sil's computer. 600mhz celeron. About 6 years old i guess. Think it's a bad motherboard but would like some input. She was having many many problems, not booting into windows. She just had the power supply replaced. Recently it would freeze on boot, after many tries would work. But then it stopped altogether while i was visiting, freezing on beginning bios screen. I took it apart. Removed everything, hd's all pci cards, cd's etc. Then i cleared the cmos. After i did that i couldn't even get it to boot into the bios. Simply a black screen. No beeps, nothing from motherboard. I even removed the memory to see if i'd get any warning beeps, award bios. Nothing! Did i do something wrong when clearing cmos? I had the mb manual right there. I happened to have purchased for my son a very similar computer that weekend for $35, which works great. Tried using that cpu, same kind, nothing. Used the $35 memory, nothing. Sil lives 800 miles away, so i took it home with me. Since i've tried different jumper settings clock, ratio. Nothing. Replaced cmos battery. Still nothing, no beeps, no bios. Cpu is seated properly, heat sink too. Motherboard looks fine on inspection, no blown capacitors, but i guess it's fried? Anything i might have missed before trashing it?

Screen Resolution Went Completely Black

I went to the menu for display, then settings, then moved the screen resolution slider from the minimum to the maximum. Unfortunantly the screen then went completely black and a little message popped up saying that it was out of limits. I have tried plugging another screen in and the same message came up. I also tried putting my lcd tv on it but it just keeps saying not supported. The computer was handed down from my mum so i don't have any of the manuals or anything. Help me! How do i reset it so that i can use it again. There is nothing on the computer that i don't mind losing, if there was a way of resetting it to factory setting that would be fine, i just don't know what to do.

Black Screen / Beeping Sound

A pii 400mhz came in the workshop with a problem that's got me scratching my head. It posts ok, reads memory, etc, but just before the operating system loads, you hear a beeping sound and the monitor goes black. No signal is sent to the monitor. The video card is agp, i tried another card, also tried a pci card. I've tried fiddling around in the bios, such as disabling power management, but no luck. You can hear the os loading, but can't see anything.
