Monitor not warming up? tft screen switching itself off

Q: Monitor not warming up? tft screen switching itself off

its a bit of a strange problem

my monitor takes about 30 turns to switch on.

basically the screen will come on and then switch itself off after a second or two. the green light on the power remains - so i have to switch it off and switch it back on again.

the interesting thing is that in that one/two second the screen appears very dull and no brightness. you can tell its working again by the image on the screen being bright.

is it that the monitor's shelf life is over or is there something more?

i did update the drivers but uninstalling them hasnt helped.

its a belinea 19 25 s1w

i've emailed the company and they've basically said they're not responsible as it was made by the previous owners (maxdata) who went into receivership and its based in germany.

Are you using a graphics card? If so, then there could be a problem with it. Is it possible for you to test the monitor on another system (maybe a friend's)?

I have a new ProBook G that I use most of the time with a Dell monitor w connected via the DisplayPort with the lid closed and after to monitor screen Black switching back external on the ProBook If I Black screen after switching to external monitor and back lift the lid on the ProBook the display switches to the laptop fine and if I close the lid it switches back to the external monitor Black screen after switching to external monitor and back fine However if I switch inputs on the monitor to view a different computer then switch the monitor back to view the DisplayPort that the ProBook is connected to the ProBook will not display either on the external monitor or on its own screen if I open the lid on the ProBook the display on the ProBook is black as well The only way I have found to recover the display on the ProBook is to force the laptop down by holding the power key until it powers off then powering it back on and letting it boot up I have tried cycling the lid and waiting to see if the ProBook will eventually output on the DisplayPort or the ProBook screen It won t I have tried the Windows P keys without effect as well as unplugging the DisplayPort cable from the ProBook but the display on the ProBook will not come back on The ProBook boots up fine on the external monitor nbsp I have found that if I open the lid on the ProBook before I switch the input on the monitor away from the ProBook then switch the monitor back to the DisplayPort connected to the ProBook and close the lid it switches back to the external monitor fine If I forget to open the lid on the ProBook before switching the external monitor away from the ProBook that is when I get into this black screen issue nbsp Prior to the ProBook I had a HP EliteBook p The EliteBook did not have this issue Lifting the lid on the EliteBook would ALWAYS cause the screen on the laptop to restore nbsp Power options are set to never turn off the display and never put the computer to sleep while plugged in which it always is When I close the lid is set to Do nothing The power button is set to put the ProBook in sleep mode when pressed I thought that I could use the power button to put the ProBook to sleep when it is the black screen mode in hopes that when I brought it out of the sleep mode the screen or monitor would come back Oddly when it is in the black screen mode the power button will not put it in the sleep mode nbsp Interestingly if I just power the external monitor off then back on it does not put it into this black screen mode nbsp Any ideas on how to recover the ProBook from a black screen without doing a forced power down

My computer shut down a couple weeks ago and when I tried to start it back up it froze after about a minute. It got to the windows screen and then hung up. I turn the computer off and try to restart it and it doesn't detect the hard drive. If I let it sit for a couple minutes and let it cool off then it will boot back up detect the hard drive but then freeze after 30 seconds to a minute. I thought it might have been overheating with the heatsinks so I added thermal compound. didn't work. at this point I don't know whether to try the Power supply, hard drive or mother board. Any suggestions please let me know. the computer does not beep on startup by the way.

A:PC freezes after warming up

Sounds like your hard drive may be bugging out. If you can with another PC, burn a copy of UBCD and then start up your victim PC with it. You want to run the latest Seatools hard drive testing tool. If it gives you the option, run both Long & Short Self Tests. If it locks up during this or states failure, then your hard drive most likely kicked the bucket. Otherwise, proceed to run some other tests as followed:

Prime95 (Mersenne Prime Test): Torture Test, Large FFTs or Blend, let run for 9+ hours
Memtest86+ : 7+ passes (or let run overnight)

For some reason my pc is taking up to an hour to warm up,it will not switch on at all untill at least 30 mins have passed sometimes longer, once going it is fine,is this my power pack or something not as simple as that.Thanks for any help here.

I have just spent some time stripping my pc down,it does not seem to be the power pack ,but the small switch board at the front of my pc seems to point towards the fault if I move the wires around and generally fiddle with it it comes on straight away is it possible to buy these boards seeing as my pc is maybe 4/5 years old.

I have a Hyundi D90+ LCD Monitor that worked fine, recently however after I left the PC and came back and met it in power down mode, it would turn on then off and I had to move the mouse again for it to turn off again. Now it turns off and on constantly even as soon as I turn it on and the computer is still in POST. So I know it is not the OS (I run Linux). It not the cables because I use the same cables with my Viewsonic and it works fine.

My first guess would be the inverter, but I never had to troubleshoot a LCD monitor before. I read on a web search that it could be a stuck power button but I played with it and it still is displaying the same problem.

Any suggestions?????

I had an old HP Flat panel vf15 monitor with the same problem. It was the power inverter (I could hear a squealing noise on power cycles). I had to get it replaced.

But before you do that, check your refresh rates, resolutions and video card drivers.

When he is through playing one he pulls the DVI plug on the monitor and switches to the other. Can he harm the video card on the computer by doing this with power on? Can he harm the video card by leaving the computer on when its not hooked up to the monitor? Thanks for any advice.

Since this past week, my printer warm up time is extensive (like almost 30 seconds or more) with it's regular sound after it has been turned off. The printer is not usually kept on as I usually turn it off each time after use.

Any ideas?

A:Samsung ML 2510 printer - warming up takes a long time

Well a Lazer printer works by creating a static charge on the pice of paper. The powdered toner is then attracted to the static parts of the papper and then melted on to the page. This is why the printers need to warm up. It is possible that the Fuser (the thing that melts the powder to the papper) is going. How warm is the paper when it comes out of the printer? If it is the fuser they can be replaced. For your printer i think it is built into the toner cartridge but im not sure, thats something you may want to check out.

Hello As I posted in the monitors forum I am having problems with a new LG W TQ monitor Being used with a new HP Pavillion Elite PC Great picture but just can't get any of the OSD or configuration screens to appear It has those touch sensitive buttons on the front Have tried everything but they never appear on the screen no matter how I press them quickly Between & ? VGA Monitor A Switching Digital DVI-D tapped held for several seconds etc Other than that the monitor is great Have it hooked up with a DVI-D cable for a digital connection rather than VGA Switching A Monitor Between VGA & DVI-D Digital ? Was wondering if perhaps to get these OSD screens to appear the monitor needs and uses somehow the analog VGA cable for this So thought I'd give Switching A Monitor Between VGA & DVI-D Digital ? it a try Now have both cables in place But I'm reasonably sure Switching A Monitor Between VGA & DVI-D Digital ? that the PC is still using the DVI-D digital cable for its output to the PC Looked in all I think all the monitor related screens in W but can't find where it is a Is there an option in W somewhere to tell Windows which to use and to switch the output spigots between VGA and DVI-D going to the monitor b Or any thoughts as to why the config OSD screens won't appear would also be most appreciated Thanks Bob

My friend's laptop's backlight just apparently broke. So, you can barely see the screen when it boots up. I hooked it up to my monitor so she could retrieve documents and files for the time being, but after the Windows XP Home boot screen, the monitor loses the feed and turns off. On the laptop screen, it continues to boot up like normal. What's going on? Do I have to change a setting to get Windows to output to the monitor?

Did you try Function-F3, Function-F5, Function-F7, or Function-F9 (one of these should work - I cant be any more specific because i dont know the make or model of the laptop). One of those should switch the video mode to the monitor.

He has an APG video card but the computer won't default to AGP without setting it in bios. Is there a hotkey or a way to force bios to switch to APG card?

A:Built New PC But Monitor Ain't Switching on HELP!

Hi kev, the first approach would be to check all your connections, and reseat all your cards and memory. Also, check in your BIOS, and see if you have your graphics card set at 128MB, if it is, try backing it off to 64MB, and see if that helps. If that doesn't work, then you might try resetting your CMOS, and see if it will run on the default settings.

Have you tried running your system outside the case? I would check, to be sure, that the MOBO is not shorting out on any standoffs, it is a hassle, but when building your own system, it saves you a lot of headaches. Here is the advice that I give to those who ask me about building their own system:

To start with, here are a few tips that may help you in your endeavor. First, if you don?t have a ground strap, then you will need to discharge, any static charge that you hold, by touching the computer case, or any metal object. Before handling any static sensitive objects CPU, memory sticks (dims), motherboard, and expansion cards, be sure to discharge yourself first.

? If you are building your own computer, first try and put it together outside the case, this has a couple advantages, the first being saving your sanity. You want to start with the bare minimum, that being the motherboard, CPU, and the power supply. You may need a front panel speaker, if there isn?t a beeper, on the motherboard, and also the on/off switch, from the computer case, plugged into the motherboard?s front panel terminals. Now, when you turn the computer on, you should see all your fans spinning and hear a bunch of beeps, so you now know that the motherboard, power supply, and the CPU all work.
? Now, this is very important, before going any further, unplug the power cord, from the power supply. Be sure to discharge your static, and now, install one stick of memory, I know, you want to put them all in, but only one stick, for now. Plug the power cord back in, and turn it on, you should hear a series of beeps (1 long 3 short), as the computer searches for the video card. Ok, turn it off, and unplug the power cord again, from the power supply
? Now, discharge yourself and inset your video card, then connect your monitor to the video card. Plug the power cord back in and turn it on. You should get the Power On Self Test (POST) one beep. Then, you should get a display, on your monitor screen, showing your basic boot screen, and a boot disk error, because you don?t have any drives installed. Up to now, if you have the monitor display, and the disk error, your system is sweet.
? Now, start putting these components, in the computer case, but first, be sure to look at the number, and the placement of the standoffs. Make sure you don?t have more standoffs than you need, and they all will line up with the mounting holes, on your motherboard. Sometimes, a standoff will be slightly leaning too far to one side, and may have a tendency to short out a circuit on the motherboard. In the case of the misaligned standoff, maybe try persuading it over in the correct direction with a needle nose pliers, or use a small piece of electrical tape around that mounting hole, on the motherboard.
? Once you have these components installed, in the case, and have your boot display, on the monitor, along with the disk error, then you know you have a good start.
? Now, install the drives, partition, and format your hard drives, setup the BIOS, install the operating system, and add the remaining hardware and drivers. Now. go take your computer for a spin around the block.

Well, I hope this helps, good luck!

I switched the monior back on and it went though the start up routine scanning for signals but said it could find none and went to sleep again. I tried it again later and everything worked OK for a while then it happened again and got more frequent but was still usable now and then but now I can't get anything at all from the monitor. The desktop sounds OK and the monitor comes on scans for signals but goes to sleep. I have tried a different cable but no good. I haven't tried a different monitor as it seems to be working.

Nowadays when i switch it on the screen dose not come up with full display immediately. Rather it flickers and goes partially dead. I could see that the display runs at the back very faintly. If i change channel or sw on-off - it again flickers with full display for split second. This thing continues for 2-5 min then display stabilizes for entire duration without any problem. i find it happens ony when i switch it for first time in a day or while using at a long interval.

A:Video switching between Monitor & TV

When you fit a standalone video card, the integrated one on the motherboard is (usually) automatically disabled by the BIOS as otherwise their respective drivers would both be fighting for the same resources, and that sort of conflict has to be avoided.

If you want to run two monitors, you must forget about using the integrated video adapter altogether. You must either buy another video card to fit alongside your Galaxy card, or remove the Galaxy card and fit a "dual-head" video card which has two output ports which can both be used at the same time (do not confuse that with a video card which may have a VGA and a DVI port but which cannot both be used at the same time).

I work as an airborne survey analyst. We utilize an aircraft to acquire hyperspectral images, RGB images, and LiDAR data. We utilize a monitor to control our hyperspectral system, and also utilize a second display in order to track our flight progress, altitude, speed, flight line selected, heading, distance to start of line, distance to end of line, etc. Our survey plane is a small plane, and there is little space available to put two large monitors. In fact, it's impossible. We need a small monitor (perhaps 13"-17") with dual-input capability, so we can simultaneously control two separate systems. Is this in anyway possible?

Thank you.

A:Two Inputs, one monitor, no switching. Preferably PBP.

I've not seen any monitors that will display two inputs. There may be a specialty item somewhere, but standard PC parts won't do it.

Hiya I have a problem with my monitor flashing on and off during boot up. I am unable to get into safe mode because of this, and when doing a dxdiag direct3d test the monitor switches itself on/off as well. Also my PC reports the graphics card as a 8600GT and not the 8800GT.

My PC specs are

Mobo - Asrock Conroe1333-D667
CPU - Intel Pentium D 3GHZ
GFX - INNO3d Nvidia 8800GT (even though pc says 8600GT)
RAM - Crucial 2gig DDR2
HD - Seagate 250G SATA11
BIOS Version P1.30

The Monitor is a GNR 19" TFT monitor.

Any help would be appreciated

Whenever I attach my charger cable to laptop and switch it on, the display goes blank. However laptop remains on.If I switch off the power or take out the cable, the display comes back. I have a Windows 10 which I upgraded from built in Windows 8.1. Dont remember whether this problem started after Windows 10 - but maybe.I have looked into the forum and seen some similar issues but solutions given are like charger not working, or change the screen type by pressing Fn + f4 key etc. Pls advise - even as I write now, my battery is almost dying and I cannot plug the charger!!!

Hello there, I am new to the forums and I've made account here to seek help from the experts about my problem.

I run on a desktop using:
Graphics card: ATI Radeon HD 5570
Monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 2032mw
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

While using my desktop normally my monitor keeps flashing sometimes and plays the driver "plug" "unplug" sound (well it sounds like it)

Then I go check my resolution by right clicking > Scree Resolutions >>>> Here I see my on the display bar changes after the "plug" "unplug" sound comes from "Generic Non-PnP" to "SyncMaster" and vice-versa.

Please note that the screen keeps running normally on the 1680x1500 resolution on both displays, but the transition between those two is very annoying.

I cannot seem to stop it!

I have installed all newest drivers, and driver for my monitor.

Thank you.

A:PC Crashes when switching HDMI inputs on TV monitor

switching HDMI Problem is famous for Acer PC's. If you have updated your driver try to get the original driver, Acer | Download works but see if you have a driver setup disk you should have made one when you got your pc if you didn't do not do it now because you will just make a disk with the newer driver on it. If you have never updated your driver than go to Google and type in your graphics card name. for instance Intel HD 4000 Graphics and hit enter find a reputable site like and get the newest driver if you download an older one the installer will tell you when you try to install it. It is ok to install an older driver sometimes newer drivers break things and we are forced to resort back. you should change your driver version though because you have found a bug that prevents you from doing what you need to do. if the driver thing doesn't work or you cant find the drivers i mentioned than try giving us more information like model of your PC ie.. Acer Aspire 5750Z-4885. With Acer it is important to include everything not just the first four #'s because Acer hardware changes over the last 4 as well. Also tell us what operating system you are suing ie.. Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or 8 we need to know you should update your system specs on this website so that they are always visible whenever you post. and I recommend updating your chipset driver while your on because chip-set drivers can also cause conflicts with your graphics hardware

During installation of v/drivers, Windows recognize the second monitor. However later, it keeps randomly switching between first and second monitor, with different intervals (from 20 sec to 20 min). I don't have this problem when i use Linux, so it doesn't seem as a problem with a cable. Thank you!

A:Windows shifting back to primary monitor when switching users.

After doing a ton of research and then replicating the issue on a number of Win 7 systems, I'm giving up on this OS for dual-monitor business use and going back to Vista 64. I really wanted to work with Windows 7, but I've exhausted my efforts.

I tried a number of third party window management utilities and software, but they either are too tempermental and don't work consistently, or work great but mess up something else (like slow Adobe Flash performance with one window management app). It's all too gimmicky. It's really sad that such basic and expceted functionality is nonexistent in a newer version of an OS. Two steps forward, one step back.

Here is a really long thread on another forum which addresses the issue. The first post in the thread was made in January of 2010, and the thread is still going. Kinda depressing that the issue won't be addressed by MS.

My Windows 8 laptop keeps randomly switching from the desktop to the Start screen. I've read that it's when you swipe your finger half way across the touchpad from the left and that to stop it you need to go to and that if you turn off switching between recent apps it should stop it.
However, it's still switching to the Start screen randomly. Sometimes I'm not even touching the touchpad and I'm certainly not always swiping across it when it switches. It's not that I've been catching the Start key either on the keyboard.
How can I stop it randomly switching from the desktop to the Start screen?

I have a laptop with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250, which has a Power Saving GPU for battery use and a High Performance GPU for when it's mains powered.

If I am on battery and then plug it in, I get a blue screen as soon as I click to confirm the switch!

If I start the computer while plugged in, windows fails to start!

The computer was fine until a couple of days ago when all of a sudden the screen froze and nothing looked the way it was meant to.
Just before it failed I didn't change anything, or update anything, it seemed to be untriggered.

A:Blue screen when switching GPU

If you had a recent update from Microsoft which included an update from ATI for your GPU you might want to revert to before that update or at the very least revert to a date when you did not experience a problem.

I don't know if HP is one of the OEM that have updates specific to the GPU's in their laptops but you might want to go to their official website and see if this applies to your specific model.

Going from battery and the low power GPU to power mode and the high end GPU is a problem with quite a few of the laptops out there so don't think it is only you. Best of luck.

edit: subject line should say "Part" of screen

Hi, I have a NVidia GeForce 5500 video card and an Acer 193W 19" monitor.

The Video card has a VGA output and a DVI-D dual link output. The monitor has a VGA input and a DVI-D single link input.

When I connect the monitor via VGA, I can use the monitor's max resolution of 1680x1050. When I connect using DVI-D single link, and choose 1680x1050, part of the screen is cut off (horizontally) and when I mouse to the edge of the screen, it scrolls right to show the part that was cut off (which then cuts off a small part of the left side). I don't have this problem on VGA.. does anyone know why the DVI connection would do this or how to correct it?


A:Switching from VGA to DVI cuts off pat of screen

This is a stretch...The DPI setting might need adjusting for DVI output use. Start/Control panel/rt click 'Display'/properties/settings

If this is incorrect, then change it back before attempting a different settings change.

When you say it "switches" do you mean it goes from one screen to the other, as in back and forth repeatedly, or does it show one screen and then go to the other screen and stay.

Also, for sound I am trying to get 7.1 on my HT setup while connected to the secondary monitor. It says under Realtek-2 speakers @ 24bit-192HZ, and HDCP no. Why am I getting 2 speakers and no?

both of the problems that you are running into are not uncommon. You're not the only one
1) video cards will sometimes automatically switch the primary screen to a certain output. In your case this is HDMI. Your card is smart enough to realize though that if there is nothing plugged in to the HDMI port it should not do this. I Suggest you try are a) forcing the primary screen back onto your computer monitor by right clicking the desktop, go into video resolution and doing it here every time or b) going into the system bios and designate the output to your computer monitor as primary. That would only work under very limited circumstances and would require that your bios show you this option. The auto switching behavior of the card would probably override this. Just a thought
2) there is a copy protection system which manufacturers are adding to Blu-Ray discs more and more which is causing your second problem. The system has been put into place more recently and equipment that is designed to play high definition material may have been manufactured before the HDCP system was implemented.
The way it works is simple and annoying. If HDCP copy protection has been added to a blue Ray disc the disc asks the player if the player, and every other component in the signal chain such as the video card any switches and even the television itself has circuitry in it to play HDCP material. Equipment that has this circuitry is called "HDCP compliant" If even one of the components does not have this, the Blu-Ray material will either not play or will play at lower resolution and without some of the fancier audio features like seven channel. Additionally video cards that can send a signal to the television using the component connector-the red blue and green separate connectors-will not transmit a Blu-Ray image with HDCP because the copy protection travels only in the digital HDMI connector not the analog component plugs. That is true even if the video card in the TV are "HDCP compliant" the solution there is just use the HDMI cable.
In your case either your Blu-Ray player, your video card, your switch, or your television is not "HDCP compliant" if your disks are actually playing, the resolution looks good to you, and the two channel audio is something you could live with you could hold off on finding the piece that is not "HDCP compliant". I do not know if your disks are playing at reduced resolution or not at all. Either can occur if your system is not "HDCP compliant"
If you are not getting the video and audio you want it requires just a little bit of documentation checking. Look at the documentation for your Blu-Ray player, your video card, your switch, and your TV. If it doesn't say HDCP compliant it probably isn't. I am guessing it is your switch. That is also the easiest thing to check. Plug your computer directly into your TV with the HDMI cable and if your sound becomes available at 7.1 and the "no HDCP" warning goes away then bypass or replace your switch. I believe that most components that were not made quote "HDCP compliant cannot be upgraded ... Read more

Hi All

just wondering if anyone could help me to write a batch file for a problem i have been having.

my mums desktop has a VGA output and a DVI output.
i have set it up for her so she can watch netflix etc on her lcd tv, but the quality is quite poor as we were just using a vga splitter and jack to phono cables.
i have bought a vga to dvi lead, but i cant have the monitor and the tv lcd working at the same time for some reason, meaning if someone is watching tv, the computer is unusable unless someone changes the cables over (a little to tech for mother)

i reckon a batch file to switch displays could work but have no idea if it even possible to write such a thing.

does anyone have any ideas??


A:Solved: Screen Switching Easily?

It's much easier to use the native software for your video adapter to configure multimonitor support. Both AMD/ATI and nVidia have software that let's you use multiple monitors independently or in combination. You should just download the current version of the appropriate drivers for your video. Even if you are using Intel graphics, it's pretty much the same procedure. With some laptops, you might have an issue with multi-monitor support and need to use a Fn keystroke combination to direct output to an external monitor, but all of that should be pretty simple and straightforward.

I have an old Latitude D520 which I have pulled out of my computer closet to give to someone in need.  It booted right up :) and then reminded me why I stopped using it.  The laptop monitor actually works fine but something in the boot-up switches it to "external screen only" mode (not monitor and screen), and thereby blanks out the laptop monitor.  I have tried switching it back using Fn-F8.  The switch works, but then it switches itself back to "external screen only" mode.  Any ideas?
Thank you for any assistance.  I have an extra screen that I could give them too, but it would be nice to have the thing still be portable.

Since over a couple of months ago, I have been receiving a blue screen error when I log off a limited account and log into my administrator account. It only happens when I log off a different user and log in to my account and the error it states is: win32.sys error

Please advise me on how to fix this error.

Hi, I often have to switch between using two different monitors depending one where it is I have my computer. I am using a different monitor then the one I used to install vista with, and now it is blurry at the top of the screen. Changing the screen resolution doesn't seem to be helping.

I have downloaded a driver for my other monitor (via updates on windows) as well as configured some screen setting in windows media player. They are both 1024x768 resolution monitors. What is it I should do to resolve this issue?

A:Switching between monitors... screen blurry at top

Try using this blurred monitor on another computer. If it happens there then you have a problem with the monitor, NOT the computer.

Also you might check out the cable connection, when one change these a lot, then things can go wrong.

When I try, on Windows XP, to switch user (between 2 administrator accounts) going through run – close session – switch account (or something like this, my OS is not in English), I get a black screen from which I cannot exit without starting again my computer. If I close the first session before opening the second one, it’s OK. This problem came after installing SP3, but I cannot restore because the system tells me nothing has been changed.

Has anyone ever figured definitively whether or not the HP Elitebook 8470P display panel can be upgraded from 1366x768 to 1600x900?  I currently have an AMD Radeon HD 7570M [Display adapter] which should have 1GB dedicated GDDR5 video memory. I should also have integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 according to this:   Also, according to that same link info, I should be able to switch out the current HD (1366x768) display for a HD+ (1600x900) display. They both use 40 pin connectors in the same location. And this link ( ) on page 3, shows that the 1600x900 display panel should work on the 8470P. Has anyone successfully switched the panel out for a higher resolution model? Will I need to upgrade my graphics card?Holler if you need more info, and thanks for reading this far.

like you can set in power settings of a computer. you can tell it to turn the screen onto standby after a certain ammount of inactivity.

i would like to be able to do this myself, preferably remotely for a pc by either using a command line or some other method but i dont want the screen to turn on again when the mouse of the pc is moved or something is typed on the keyboard.

hope this makes sence.

Last weekend I cleaned an XPhome machine which had 514 virally infected files. Obviously it had been having a lot of problems!

Now it's at least running but when they try to switch from one user to another it comes up with the BSOD and information containing
STOP C000021A
0xC0000005 (0x77E7569E 0x002EF808)

At the moment I don't know if it happens when doing a log off and then log on.

Having stopped, the machine will restart fine and they can log into the new user.

Any ideas?

My AMD Radeon HD 5670 graphics card was faulty so i'm now connected up to my onboard graphics (ASRock N68C-S UCC with NVIDIA Geforce 7050/nForce 630a Chiposet) and now it is not recognising my plug and play LG E2340 monitor, and says 'Generic Non-PnP Monitor, and the highest resolution i can now get is 1400 x 1050 which looks stretched and is no good what-so-ever, i was previously on 2048 x 1536.
I have tried reinstalling the ASRock motherboard drivers, it's made no difference

A:Low screen resolution since switching from grapics

The resolutions available are controlled by the Video card drivers up to a maximum controlled by the monitor driver. I would only suggest that you delete both items from within Device Manager. Then reboot and allow them to be refound by Windows and reinstalled. Have you also checked that the M/B driver you installed is the latest.

Hello all
Recently my desktop, a Gateway FX6710 with a Radeon HD 4800 Graphics card (card is fairly new, about a year)  has an issue of the screen going black for several seconds when switching Users. My graphics drivers ARE up to date. I am running Win 7 64 bit. This has just started happening recently (about a week I guess)
If someone can give me some trouble shooting steps I would much appreciate it

Without swapping mouse buttons across the entire system, I don't think so, at least not without some considerable effort. Some advanced mouse software may enable you to assign a button to do so though.

Hello fuzzystone, Welcome to TSF!

You can only have one Administrator Account opened at any given time with XP.
Closing off the first Administrator Account Session, and starting the second one is quite correct, otherwise the system will not function correctly.

Hello there,

I recently switched from HDMI to DisplayPort as my monitor can handle 144hz, and just ran a test to see whether my HDMI cable still made the display look greyish and it doesn't have that much grey in it compared to the DisplayPort. The DisplayPort is more greyish and I only came to notice it when I switched the cables. What's happened here?

Hi all,

I'm new to the site. Taking a look around, it seems you guys know everything , so here goes...

Over the last few months, I've noticed that about a fourth of the time, when I or one of my family members either logs off or fast-switches users, the screen goes black, and no combination of mouse-clicking or key-pressing will bring the screen back. We just have to restart the system, and then it's fine.

Typically, this happens when more than one of us is logged on, but not always. We upgraded to SP2 a very long time ago, and this issue was *supposed* to be fixed in the service pack. However, this problem seemed to start independently of any major update.

Edit: Luckily, this has never happened when any program was running with unsaved data, so we haven't lost anything by rebooting.

Any suggestions?

hello celloblaze,

mike here,

okay just to ask a few questions to get an idea !

what type of spyware /antivirus scanners are you useing ?

are you doing all your updates ( express/ custom )at windows updates ?

are you also updating your drivers ?

have you done a system file check ( windows installation cd required ?

also do you scan each user for spyware /viruses/ maleware ect...... ?

have you done a scandisk ?

what type of errors are you getting ?

are you shutting down all open programs befor switching ?

you see there are many factors that can contribute to one problem also if you could give more details about your computer this would help as in ( make / model / age / laptop /desktop /software a upgrade or full version, factory install or user install)

all we can do is try !!!!!!

Screenshot of error is here

The program causing it is needed for my DLINK wireless card. I just upgraded this machine from 512 MB of RAM to 2 GB, if that matters.

I will not install the program, as if I do, the wireless card (and internet access) ceases to function.

Please help me re-enable it!

A:Welcome Screen and Fast User Switching disabled. How to re-enable?
suggests that it's a known issue. The D-Link card probably installs its own login module which overtakes the Microsoft one (msgina.dll = Microsoft Graphical Identification and Authentication) (there was a similar case with some Intel adapters).
The post was about a month ago, so I'd check with D-Link on a regular basis to see if they've released a patch or an updated driver.

other ideas:
perhaps uninstall everything D-Link related, then reinstall, but during installation pick manual installation (if there is such a step), then install just the driver - don't install the utility.
