Q: No Picture on LCD Monitor

Model: vx2035wm

Power light blinks blue but no picture. I swapped it out with CRT monitor with no issues on the CRT monitor. How hard is it if I fix it myself? Whats the name of the part I need to fix this and where to buy the part?

Preferred Solution: No Picture on LCD Monitor

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: No Picture on LCD Monitor

From the info you provided, it's hard to exactly tell what is wrong with your monitor. Most likely you have some capacitors or some transistors that have "burnt up" (failed). You have the blinking light which means that you are still getting some power to it, but not the full amount needed. Looking up the information on the monitor, it is from either 2007 or 2008. My best suggestion is to get a new one. This is not something that is quick and simple to fix. Most of the time when something like this happens, you have to unsolder parts and then solder new parts back on to the board. Also, finding available parts for the monitor might create another challenge. If you are comfortable with this type of repair work, then take the cover off and start looking for "burnt" parts.

Ok my computer is on and the monitor is on but there is no connection between the two. What isn't working so that the monitor and computer aren't working together? Its a desk top emachines I bought in 2003. runs windows 98 I believe. The emachines monitor went out on me not even a year after I bought it. I bought a used monitor from a friend. Its a gateway. Sorry that's all I got for now. I bought a new computer and monitor since this has happened.

A:No picture on the monitor

Welcome to the TSG forums...

When the monitor isn't showing anything, it is very difficult to tell if the computer is actually WORKING, or only sitting with the fans making noise, due to some problem you can't see, because the monitor isn't working... If the computer IS working, you should be able to see a (small) light flashing on the front of the system; the Hard Drive Activity Light flashes to indicate that the hard drive is busy working during bootup...

OK, let's figure that the hard drive IS working, and a little light IS flashing on the front of the computer while the system boots up... The MOST likely problem is that the videocard inside the computer has come loose, and is no longer making good contact in the slot where it is installed on the motherboard. You MIGHT be able to resolve this by removing the cover from the computer, and trying to reseat the videocard. You will recognize it because it is the card the monitor is plugged into...

Do NOT remove the cover while the system is running; SHUT DOWN and UNPLUG THE COMPUTER before you work on it. Failure to do this can mean serious problems for you, and damage to your system...

It is ALSO possible that something else has come loose inside the computer, though most times, you should hear a series of "beeps" when that happens. However, if your system does NOT have an internal speaker, you won't hear any beeps...

Truth be told, there are a MULTITUDE of reasons why you could be having this problem; without more information... Does the hard drive activity light flash when you first try to boot the system? Do you hear any fans running? Do you hear or see ANYTHING to indicate that the computer is working at all?

ANOTHER problem could be that the monitor itself is defective, or that the monitor cable is defective, OR, the cable could have a bent pin within the little connector that attaches the monitor to the computer / videocard...

The videocard might have failed; if there is no actual videocard installed in the system, the onboard videochip might have failed...

In light of all that, your best bet might be to contact someone more knowledgeable about computer repair, and see if they can personally assist you in troubleshooting this issue... Please post any more information you can provide; you could begin by answering my questions, to help me with more details, as I try to help you find the problem...

Good luck; let's put our heads together and try to figure this out...

Hi all,

I installed a brand new case and PSU on my old setup (Asus M2NPV-VM) and there is still no picture on the screen. I tried using the onboard video, and then tried plugging my video card (nVidia 7600GT) but nothing works. The same thing happened to my when the system was using my old case, nothing would show up on the screen. I'm out of ideas.

Please help.

We have given our HP Pavilion desktop to our 2 children to use and we recently purchased a notebook for us to use. We also purchased a new flat screen monitor for the HP desktop. Everything was working fine on our children's computer, but in the last couple of days there has been no picture on the monitor when we turn it on. When we boot up the computer, we do not hear any Windows XP sounds, and when we press on the caps lock button there is also no sound. The button that you press to boot up the computer is lit up though, so the computer itself is on. We would like to begin a complete recovery on the system, but we can't without seeing what needs to be done on the monitor. Please help!

A:No Picture On Monitor


Does the computer make any sounds at all? Such as when it usually powers up it should have an initial system beep. Also just to confirm, does the monitor work by itself? You should be able to test it using the laptop it it also has the same vga connector. And lastly, do you have access to another desktop system?

I'm trying to hook up a 32" Emerson TV as monitor to a Windows 10 computer using HDMI.

There is not a video card as such?it is the graphics included on the Intel chip.

The picture is too big for the screen. The first column of icons on the desktop is barely visible and the task bar is almost totally hidden.

The highest resolution available in Display Settings is 1920 x 1080. When I open a window the text is very clear/sharp.
I have not been able to find any way of reducing the size of the picture using the TV/monitor settings.

Q1: How can I reduce the size of the picture so it just fills the screen?

Q2: Can I get a higher resolution than 1920 x 1080?

I am using an ATI All-In-Wonder 9600 with 2 monitors.

Last night I had to uninstall and re-install the ATI software; for some reason I had lost the Capture Driver. After re-installing everything worked fine. This morning I turned on the computer and the monitors did not come on. I turned them on manually and they give a "NO SIGNAL" message. Is this a coincidence? Could the re-installing of the software cause it to not even show the BIOS bootup screen? I'm totally lost as to what to do. Install another video card - I may have one still around somewhere?

Any help would be much appreciated. I'm not at home now but any advice will be taken when I get there this evening. I do have a second computer there so I can respond to any comments, questions, etc.

Thank you,

I have now gone through 4 monitors and a new video card during my attempted transition from a 15 inch screen to a 17 inch flat panel. Despite adjusting resolution and refresh rates, the picture always gives shadows. In other words, after each text letter, there are multiple faint repetitions of each letter trailing off to the right. The monitors DO work on another, older computer. I have a 3 year old Dell running Windows XP. Any advice?

Is it true that the picture size of a 15" lcd monitor is about the same size as a 17" crt?

A:lcd vs crt monitor picture sizes

Hi, plschwartz

It is pretty close, because unlike a CRT monitor, an LCD doesn't cover part of the screen with a bezel.

One thing to remember about LCD screens, however, is that they have a " Native resolution" ( depending on the size of the LCD) and generally do not look good at any other resolution.

Hello, I need somebody's advice on how to get the max performance out of my PIONEER KURO plasma 60" flatscreen. As many of you know hi-def 1080 is not powerful enough for these $5000 monitors so I would like to use a video card instead to give this engine the fuel it needs to run correctly. I don't watch cable or reg television I strictly watch prerecorded sporting events, movies etc. Here's the catch I will be running it from a slim chassis pc only so I need a very powerful vid card that must fit the narrow chassis design. Hi-Def means Hi-Def and the awful picture quality of anything over 50" is a discrace. At least if there is a Unit that was ever made to look the part the Pioneer was it , so anyone who could bring out the potential of the 6020 FD , please share your thoughts!   VeeDandy

Can a monitor lose its "crisp and clearness" after so long. I have some older monitors on new machines with the refresh rate maxed. Is there anything else I can do with it or is served its time and needs to be thrown out?

A:Monitor picture clearness

You can try adjusting the contrast & brightness, as I've seen many monitors where users turn them both all the way up and that often causes the pixels to blossom which results in a bright but blurry screen. Though many older cheaper monitors dim so much they have to turn them all the way up, so at that point it's time for a new one. In environments where florescent lighting is used you often need more brightness to overcome the overhead glare, which results in shorter lifespan of the CRT.

So, my friend just got a new monitor for his computer. It's an emachines T6410 and has XP and a 3200+ AMD Athlon 64 processor. The monitor is an LG Flatron and when we hooked it up to his computer and turn it on, I'm not sure, but I think the computer isn't sending any signal to the monitor. Because the monitor turns on and the blue light comes on, then the LG symbol comes up, but after that it says power saving mode. It won't show anything else, it just stars hibernating.

Any help would be appreciated, I'm kinda stumped.

Hello, I am trying to use my TV as a monitor for my computer. I have a GeForce 7950 and an Olevia TV. It has VGA and HDMI but I am trying to use the componet cables from my video card. The blue, green, and red ones. It shows up but everything is blue and white. The colors aren't coming in right at all. I have checked that they are matched correctly multiple times. I was wondering what I may be able to do to fix the problem? I have also tried reinstalling the video drivers. I would like to see if there is any way to fix this using the cables and not having to get a VGA cable.

A:TV picture for monitor"?

It is possible that there may be some type of "component video" type difference. The controller may be outputting Y,Pr,Pb signals while TV is expecting RGB signals.

It may be rather difficult for someone here to help troubleshoot your problem without knowing the exact brand and model number of the video controller card (I believe that GeForce 7950 refers only to the graphics ICs on the card) as well as the model number of the Olevia TV.

A:bsod=>no monitor picture?

Hi .

The first thing I would suggest checking is...all connections.

If you have a separate video card (it's not onboard video), then I suggest removing the video card and reseating it. If it's onboard video, then I would (because I have spare components lying around my apartment) try a video card in lieu of the onboard. In such cases, I have to make sure that I have the appropriate video card type that matches up with my motherboard.

The only way that I approach troubleshooting a lack of video on a to try to assure myself that other likely suspects (power supply, RAM, hard drive) can be moved to another system and actually work there.

When I'm sure that the above components/functions are working properly...and I still have a problem...I move on to the hard stuff (CPU, motherboard) as suspects. My experience-level doesn't allow me to do much with these, so I just take the troubled system to a local computer shop (I trust) and ask them to check it out for me.

When I boot my PC and when the monitor turns on (for example when exiting from standby mode) the screen image is projected too low, the bottom pixels are not visible !

First, i moved the image each time i had to in order to re-center it again. Then, I noticed that several minutes later (when the monitor is "hot") the image moves up so if i re-centered it first, the top pixels are now too high and out of the monitor.

and such things happen each time i turn it on

So i decided to leave it and wait until the screen image is correctly centered (there aren't too much lost lines at the bottom, about 8-10 pixels).

My monitor is an 19" AOC 9Glr. (not flat screen, not TFT)

Do you think I should return my monitor to the shop ?

You'll need to set it to duplicate, now you have the extended desktop mode on (you can use both monitor individually, ie, move your programs onto the TV display if you want to, your mouse pointer should be able to cross onto the TV display as well).
I'm not 100% sure on how to do it, I don't currently use dual monitors so I can't provide a hand-to-hand instruction set, but a quick Google search should provide you with one. ("set secondary display to duplicate vista", or the like?)

If you have a video card in that computer try swapping it out with your other system and test it in there, and vice versa (if you have a card in your other computer put it in the one that isn't working and see if it works). If you get the same error when you insert that card into the other computer then that would be a good hint. Or if you have onboard video, well......try putting in a card from another computer and see what happens.

My friend gave me his old laptop, he bought a new one.
The screen is crack making it totally useless.
I'm trying to boot from a USB stick but can't because I can't see what's going on.
If the system boots normal windows will show up on the external monitor.

Sony vaio


Intel i3 2.3 ghz
6 gb ram
Intel video card
500 gb hard drive

Thanks in advance.

A:Laptop, external monitor no picture.

You could try pressing fn+F7 to see if it cycles to the external display while booting, if it does then just press enter to confirm and save, it's not done via windows but the Sony hardware, so give it a go and good luck.

I recently installed a new LCD monitor which worked fine for a week.Now when I start XP the screen shows Bios screen & choice of systems(I have XP partitioned),I select either,wait & no picture.If I use the re-set button on the case,after the choice of starting options comes up & I select normally everything is fine.
One side has a MS driver for the nVidia Ti 4200 with AGP 8X,the other,which I use for gaming has the latest uncertified nvidia driver.
If when it's up & ruuning I change partitions by doing a re-start the other side works fine.
I'm not very clued up I know,but any help very welcome.

I have a Viewsonic VG800 monitor that I recently acquired from a bank. The bank was ready to throw away the monitor because it wasn't getting any picture. Then monitor is definitely getting power, just no picture. I have hooked the monitor up to the secondary video port on my graphics card and when I turn the power on I get a BRIEF picture. The monitor then proceeds to power down as if it is getting no video signal. Does anyone have any ideas that might help????

2 days ago when I was cleaning my computer from inside from dust, and when i connected everything back (I didn't pull out any of the components) my monitor went blank, and only the brown light was shining. Then I disconnected the graphics card and put it back in. All the same, my graphics card still works, but I had to connect the monitor to the motherboard integrated card. When my system booted up (Windows 7 Ultimate), in devices and printers tab, under the computer icon was a yellow questionmark, saying that the PCI memory controller misses drivers, but it can't find them on the Internet. My MB is AMD 690v , and my graphics card is ATI HD 4670. What should I do? PLEASE HELP ASAP. Thanks.

A:Monitor doesn't show picture!

You motherboard may contain that AMD chipset but that is not the motherboard make and model. You need to identify the motherboard make and model and go to the motherboard manufacturer's website to find drivers for it. You would go to ATI's website for graphics drivers if you ever need them.

That said, you shouldn't suddenly be missing these drivers. Did you take precautions against static electricity discharge while you were cleaning the insides of the PC? Hopefully reinstallation of the motherboard drivers will be enough.

By the way connecting your monitor to the integrated graphics does not mean your Radeon HD 4670 card still works. It only works if your monitor is plugged into the 4670 and you get a normal output.

Dont spend too much time ,energy on this one fellow techguy members,a friend of a friend had a computer issue and im curious what went wrong with it. maybe its an obvious problem with a simple problem

they said they went to install a web cam and the monitor no longer works correctly. immediately i thought device driver conflict.

the computer boots up,the monitor will show a small green dot,then go to an all amber screen. the computer,as i was told,sounds like it boots properly,but no picture.

i asked to try another monitor but no word how that went.

Try booting into safe mode and reset the resolution and desktop size. If you get no video during boot up the card or the monitor is DOA.

A:Solved: computer starts but no picture on monitor

Hi momathome,

It sounds more like trouble with the physical connections on the monitor, but it is possible something changed on your windows settings. Try disconnecting the monitor cable (the cable that runs from the back of the monitor to the back of the computer) and reconnect it on both ends. You can leave the computer on to see if the display comes back.

If that doesn't work, try booting the computer in Safe Mode to see if this will allow you to get the monitor to come up. Press the power button on your computer to turn it off, then turn it back on. Begin hitting the F8 key on your keyboard repeatedly (don't hold it down) for about 20-30 seconds. Then press enter and give your computer a few minutes to power up.

If your monitor comes back in Safe Mode, things will look really strange. Right-click anywhere on the desktop that does not have an icon, then click on "Properties" in the menu that appears. This should open your display properties. From there, click on the Advanced tab and see what your monitor settings are. If you have more than one monitor that shows up in that window, make sure Monitor 1 is active and set as the "Primary" display. If so, click OK and try restarting the computer.

Hope this helps!

Recently at work two CRT monitors have developed this condition where periodically either the edges of the screen will jitter or the bottom of the screen will pull back and then snap back into place repeatedly, like the bottom of the screen is a ball being bounced on the floor. These don't seem to be the regular monitor is going out issues like vertical flipping or shrinking of the screen area in one dimension or another or going very dim, etc. I have no idea what is causing the trouble, whether it be the monitor or the on board video, but on watching the user I cannot identify any particular action which causes the screen to start bouncing, I just know that it does not happen all the time. Any help would be much appreciated. I thank you in advance for your time and your responses.

I'm a real computer illiterate and I readily admit it. I don't even know if this is the correct place to post. Please forgive any first time faux pas.

Lately when we try to view certain websites the picture shakes - a lot. It makes you dizzy. Per example: All of Yahoo! is fine, but Playsite shakes when it first opens. We have games downloaded and they shake too.

Not all sites, not all games. E-mail is ok, everything else is fine.

Our computer is a Packard Hell (did I say that???) and it is about 4 or 5 years old. We had a hard drive crash and it was successfully repaired about 4 months ago.

We are slow but were working fine until this.

Is this a monitor?? A friend suggested opening the tower and cleaning something with canned air. Scary for me.

I would appreciate clear understandable replies.

Thanks so much.

Try updating or reinstalling the video drivers.

My friends monitor has her screen showing a pink cast and it looks like the picture has pixels missing/breaking up. This happens whether she is on the internet or not. When she turns on her PC the screen is dimmer/pink etc. She has changed her monitor to see if this solves the problem (it didnt) she then unplugged the cables and blew away dust, that didnt help. She has run AVG; Ad-aware; Spybot all to no avail. The PC is 7 years old. No new software or any changes were made before this happened. We are not very technical, is there anything else she can do or does she have to buy another PC?

Reloading the driver software for the video display adapter on the PC would certainly be worth a try, but it does have the possibility of a hardware failure within the PC.

Never mind as quick as the problem began it's resolved itself for some reason Post can be deleted I'm having ViewSonic picture, monitor cut out. access can't menus. No a bit of a strange issue with my ViewSonic VX monitor Out of nowhere the ViewSonic monitor cut out. No picture, can't access menus. screen started to flicker not the sort of flickering you might expect from a loose cable but literally going completely off and back on every few seconds Eventually the screen did not come back on at all Thinking there was a loose cable I tried tightening them but to no avail The light on the monitor is still blue showing that it is detecting an input and Windows ViewSonic monitor cut out. No picture, can't access menus. still detects that the monitor is plugged in When I turn the monitor off and on I can see the ViewSonic logo but oddly enough after that it is a black screen and I am unable to get any system menus to appear the ones that are generated by the ViewSonic monitor cut out. No picture, can't access menus. monitor itself not the PC or change the source I would have thought that because of this there is something wrong with the display but that doesn't seem to be the case considering I can see the logo upon starting the monitor Perhaps something to do with firmware I don't think that it is a problem with my GPU as my secondary monitor a Samsung SyncMaster still seems to be functioning perfectly but just in case it is a Powercolor Radeon R X and my drivers are all up to date Thanks for the help

This is a theoretical problem I need to solve for a school project so sorry for wasting your time on a problem that doesn't actually exist. Is it true that even if the RGB cable is plugged into the computer correctly, but the screws aren't screwed in on the plug, that this could cause the picture to become a "digital static mess"? This was the only information we were given to solve the problem, so I'd assume it has something to do with that, but I've never heard of something like this so I'm checking here just to make sure.

Once again, sorry for wasting your time on a problem that doesn't actually exist, but I would really appreciate any help.

I just recently bought a used emachines computer, and it was having problems. It has an AMD Athlon XP 2800+, 512K L2 Cache, 333MHz FSB. It had the original MOBO in it, and I just replaced that with an ASUS A7V8X-MX SE. The original MOBO was bad, because the power supply and fans would come on automatically when plugged in, but nothing would work. Now that I replaced the MOBO, everything comes on and runs, but I am getting no picture on the monitor. I tried replacing and reseating the RAM, replaced the battery, used the onboard video card, and tried using the AGP 8x GeForce FX5500 256MB I just bought. I have pretty much tried everything I can think of, except for replacing the CPU, which I really hope I don't have to do. Does anyone have any recommendations? I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

She has unplugged everything and plugged it back in and it still does not show up. But when she plugs the power supply back in, the screen comes back up to normal for a split second. Any thoughts as to what is wrong with this monitor? Fixes?

The Asus boot screen before it is centered and the password screen and everything after is centered. It just really bugs me that now that one screen is moved over. Is there a setting I can change because of the cable switch or something?

You may want to do the cardboard test...Take out all the internal parts,assemble them on a piece of card board and power up with monitor of course...What happens? If the parts work as expected then you may have a grounding issue ,1st thing check your stand offs and rubber/plastic, or the insulated grommets to make sure they were in the correct place. Prior to taken the parts out make sure the MOBO isn't touching the case.. If the issue still exist check your ram one per slot to see if it is a faulty ram stick..

Most likely it isn't detecting your display properly, and is likely feeding it incorrect refresh/resolution information. I would suggest using a different LiveCD, like Knoppix, and seeing how that fares.

Can you see the POST screen to enter back into the BIOS? You may need to go back in with the manual for the PC and make sure everything is properly set. If you used F2 to enter the BIOS, it should work, but you will need to make sure the display setting is supported. If you disable on board video, you will need to get a stand a lone video card to make the change.

I'd love to be able to put my computer to sleep or make it hibernate, but every time I do, when it wakes up my monitor displays no picture. The only way to get my picture back is to shut it down completely and reboot. The odd part though is when I shut it down after it wakes up, the picture comes back but only for the "Windows is shutting down" screen. I'm running Win7 Home 64bit. I've looked elsewhere but I can't find definitive answer as to what causes this or a tried and true fix that works. Any ideas?

A:Monitor doesn't display picture after waking up from sleep/hibernation.

Check with the PC (or motherboard) manufacturer and see if there may be a BIOS update to correct for such a situation. Also check in BIOS setup for the ACPI settings. Let us know how it is set up currently.

I have found this BUG in Micrososft Word 2007, that I consider to be a SERIOUS ISSUE for Microsoft Office Suite.

If you copy an image from a website and paste in the Word file, the image pastes successfully the first time,
but as you go on & paste other images from the site,
the first image is repeated over and over again, in place of other images (which have the same dimensions).
All other text data remain same, the image titles remain same, but only the image is repeated over and over

A:Microsoft Office Word 2007 picture paste Bug *same picture is repeated

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I would not advise pasting images in doc files like that,
I would use ms Paint to paste or save picture as
I would really recommend using the windows snipping tool to get the images that way no bugs are being transferred to the machine or programs,
Then use the Insert image option in word...
It's just a safer way to do an operation,

Hi all,

Super bizarre.

So I woke up this mornind to login into my PC and see that my profile pic is changed back to the previous one. I have not any changes myself.

skype is linked to microsoft account. (skype had my old picture)

other option is that someone logged into my outlook and chaged profile picture then it got synced...

I cannot find any information on why or how picture would revert. ( even more so on a specific date )

any ideas or leads ?

Hello newbiew, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Since you Microsoft account is synced by default, then it most likely automatically changed back after syncing.

If you wanted to have the same user account picture for all devices, then changing it for everything should help.

If you only wanted to change it on this PC, then you could turn off syncing for Appearance under "Personalization settings" using the tutorial below.

First of all, go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft
and copy the Default Account Pictures folder and then rename it to any name,after this open the original Default Account Pictures folder and delete the picture and the data file which belong to the user and try to change accaunt picture

I have an HDMI cord running from my laptop to my desktop computer. I have the laptop outputting audio through the HDMI cord perfectly fine. However, my desktop will not relay the audio through the built-in speakers unless I have the HP Picture in Picture software open on the selected HDMI Input. I was wondering if there was a way I am able to bypass using the HP Picture in Picture software. The HDMI Inputs do not show up in the 'Sound' window through the Control Panel in either the Playback or Recording tabs. Thank you!- Bubbyfong

It turns out that if I download a picture file to the photo app in 8.1, without putting it in a particular pre-existing folder, the file goes into the general area of the app displayed alongside several other non-related pictures. Okay, no problem. But for the life of me, I can't figure out how to then move a single image file into one of the pre-existing folders I had created at an earlier time. If your suggestion is to open both the folder and the picture file side by side on the screen and then click and drag, I have no idea how to do that. Is there no way to right-click the image and find a way to select "move to", or something along those lines; or is there a pull-down menu that I can't find with the app open that contains a command to "move to"?
Any suggestions?
Thanks so much,
San Francisco

A:How to move a picture file on 8.1 to a picture folder...

Well, you have many options. What you are looking for is this:

Context Menu - Add Copy To Folder and Move To Folder - Windows 7 Help Forums

But you can just copy the pics and paste them into the folder you like.

The side by side is easy too. Just open the source folder and press WIN + Right arrow. Then open the target folder and press WIN + left arrow, Now you can drag and drop from one folder to the other.

im somewhat experienced with photo software...cropping,resizing,making pictures smaller, larger...saving them.....and placing on websites. I lack knowledge on some fundamental skills using photo software. i want to take a picture of a flag and place it on the picture of a car...then making it one picture. If someone can just tell me the photo software WORDS that i would be using from the photo software options, i can probably fiqure it out.

one thing about photo software programs, they give you a zillion options for photos, it is easy for a newbie to get lost and frustrated with so many options.
