Monitor stopped working after uninstall

Q: Monitor stopped working after uninstall

My son was using my computer temporarily for work. He was uninstalling Abobe Illustrator and needed to restart to complete the uninstall. When the computer restarted, the monitor ceased to get a signal from the computer. Have tried unplugging the monitor for a bit, tried restarting in safe mode - nothing has worked. Has the monitor somehow been fried from just a restart?

Preferred Solution: Monitor stopped working after uninstall

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: Monitor stopped working after uninstall

Really I don't think it fried from a restart. It just may have went bad. Have you tried another monitor to make sure. It could also be your on board Graphics or graphics card.

A:XP SP2 uninstall has stopped computer fr. working

Are you working from a Dell recovery CD? For a lot less than the prices you've been quoted, you would probably have more success by buying an genuine upgrade version of XP and running the second of the two "R" options. So long as you have a valid Product Key, I believe it would even be permissable to borrow an XP CD, run the Repair option and force a reactivation when it's completed. Then you can use the Change Product Key option to revert to your original key and explain why you had to do this on the telephone to the Microsoft Activation Line.

I am having trouble with my camera software program. Windows is telling me it can't load the specified file. It won't open it at all, so I decided to uninstall it and try again. But I keep getting a message saying "setup.exe has stopped working and it's searching for a solution" but it never finds one.

So.....I can't open the photo program....but I can't uninstall it, either. Is there any other way to uninstall a program besides control panel. We tried to find every file regarding the program, but that didn't remove it from the control panel list either. When I try to install it from the disk, it tells me to uninstall it first.
We have had a trojan horse message pop up the last few days, so I am wondering if this is all related. That's a whole other topic........

Hello MamaDee6, welcome to Vista Forums!

The first thing to do is to download, install and run a full scan using the free malware scanner at the link below, then let us know what it comes up with.

Malwarebytes Free Malware Scanner

You can do a system restore to a point before you first installed the camera software, that should remove it, have a look at the tutorial at the link below.

Hi there. My monitor was working fine, and I left the room and when I
came back in a half hour later the screen was blank and it was making a squeaking sound.
The green light was not on as it should have been. When i turned it off, the noise stopped and
when i turned it back on, same thing: blank screen and squeaking noise. I read a previous post
about the speakers being a potential problem, so I unplugged my speakers, but it did not
do anything to help. I have a Sony monitor and haven't had any problems in the 4 years
I've had it until now. Thanks in advance!!

I've unplugged them both and turned off my computer for 20mins, checked and verified the plugs were fine numerous times over, installed the CCC tried the force detect and still nothing picks it up and I'm at my wits end someone help me before I break it pls!

A:Second monitor stopped working

Hi, have you tried switching the monitors around so they are both plugged into the VGA/DVI/HDMI they are not usually in?

This will identify if it is a GPU problem or a Monitor Problem.

If it is a GPU problem you may consider doing a system restore to yesterday or the day before and see if that fixes anything.

My monitor is black, however, the power light is on. I've recently installed Linux in a dual boot and was working fine until yesterday when I tried to use it and nothing came on the screen. I tried booting from both the Windows and Linux CD's to see if one was the problem or the other and nothing changes the monitor.

How do I tell if it's the monitor or something else with a monitor to see what's going on?

A:Monitor Stopped working

Try that monitor on another computer known to be working.

Check the video cord connections, maybe no video signal.

Swap another working monitor on to that particular computer.

Should quickly tell you if it is that particular monitor or something else.

Hello everyone,

I've been using my TV (The brand is Olevia, I can get the model number if it's needed) as a second monitor while playing video games on my laptop (A Lenovo ThinkPad SL400 running Windows Vista) via HDMI cable.

It worked out for a while, but then my computer crashed while I was playing, and it hasn't worked since.

Whenever I plug it in, the screen goes black as if it were working, but the TV displays "Invalid Format".

The biggest change I can see is that under Display Settings, it always says that there is a second monitor plugged in, when there is not.

Screenshot attached.

Any help? Please and thankyou.

A:Monitor stopped working

Your correct it`s not the monitor Or the Video card.

It sounds like either the move or the power cuts have put errors on the Hard Drive.

First thing to try is run Checkdisk -

In normal mode,if you can,or from the Recovery console.See HERE for normal mode and HERE for the Console.

You have to go into the BIOS first and set the CD as first in the boot order.Press Del or F1 at start up.See HERE

That may not help,but it`s what I`d do first.

I have a dual screen set up, a 22" 1680x1050 as my main, and an 18" 1280x1024 as my left side monitor. My left monitor has worked fine since the day I started using it, and last night I shut my computer down it was still working fine.

However this morning when I turned on my computer, it was all colours and lines, not even a hint of what it should be displaying, and its not my computer, because when it's not connected to my computer, it doesnt even say "no signal" just shows these colours/lines, the menu doesnt come up either, so somehow the physical screen seems to have broken over night I've done nothing to it, no impacts or anything.

Does anyone have any idea what's caused this? or what I can do to fix it?

Many thanks, it's a lovely screen and would hate to see it go

Operating windows 7, I have been using a second monitor through HD lead for months with no problems, it has now stopped working,, cable ok, monitor ok.
Detecting monitors works properly, mouse moves off screen to other monitor's area.
However, the monitor reports 'no signal', displays no image or sound. Disconnecting the monitor also worked as expected, and the system would reconfigure for single monitor mode.
I reconfigured system to an earlier date but problem still here.
Any suggestions and im no computer expert :)

Thanks in advance

A:Dual monitor stopped working

For the issue, please try the methods listed as below.
1.The laptop has an Function key (Fn key next to the windows start key) on the keyboard. Press and hold the key, and hit the F5 or F8 key or that F key which has the monitor icon on it (it is F5 on toshiba and F8 on dell).

2.Sometimes a high resolution to an extended screen can also be a cause of non-display. Just reduce the resolution of the additional monitor to 800X600 .

3.unplug power cables and video cables from wall socket and back of computer and monitor, wait for 10 minutes and plug all cables back in.

4.If these methods still don't fix, then just as Balaji
said, your next bet is reinstalling your display device drivers.
Update a driver for hardware that isn't working properly

Hope this helps,

Ive been using an external monitor along side my winxp HP laptop for months via a VGA cord. I decided to connect my tv to my laptop using the same VGA cable and it didnt work. so i plugged it back into my laptop and that no longer worked as well!
took 30 seconds for my monitor to become useless.
Ive bought two other VGA cables thinking maybe my tv fried the cable, but still nothing works.

i don't think its drivers because it worked fine one minute and didn't the next. No signal is going to the monitor at all. no sign of the monitor even being connected.
anything i can do? Thanksssss.

A:2nd display monitor stopped working?

It sounds that more than likely the VGA port going out from the laptop was switched off during one of the changes. Most laptops now have a shortcut to turn this port on (since I believe it is off by default to save power) For example, mine is Fn+F5. What kind of laptop you have will determine this shortcut key. What is the model of the HP laptop are you using?

There might also be something wrong with the monitor though that is very unlikely. Does the monitor power on still and simply go into standby due to no signal? If the monitor has multiple inputs, it could be trying to find a signal from one of the other inputs. There should be a menu option to make sure the monitor is on VGA.

This is likely what was wrong with the TV as well, either it was looking at the wrong input or your laptop wasn't giving the proper output.

Hope this helps.

Was playing music then i went afk and it stopped. Checked all wires restarted computer and no sound is coming but when i plug in my headset the music/sound is fine.

A:Sound just stopped working in Monitor

Where do you plug your headset, a socket on the monitor, or do you unplug the lead from the monitor & plug the headset straight into the computer?

If you plug into the monitor, and the headset works OK, then looks like either the monitor speakers have stopped working, or maybe a little switch in the socket has stuck sending the sound to the headset, & doesn't switch back to speaker when the headset is unplugged.

If you have to plug the headset straight into the computer, then the lead carrying the sound to the monitor might have failed, or the sound circuit inside the monitor has a problem. Or there is a hidden volume control on the monitor that has muted the monitor sound - button, knob or menu option?

I am sure someone has post this before. I apologize for the repetition. I have a 3.5 year old Benq LCD monitor and it just shut down this morning without any warning. I can't turn it back on. I mean I can turn the power on and everything looks normal except there's nothing on the screen. I have read that it could be the back light went out, but wouldn't it happen gradually over the time? So is it the back light or is it something else?

There's no dealer/service support at where I live and I really need a monitor to get some work done...AND it's snowing. So screwed!!!

Am assuming this is an MS Server side issue but tonight my two children logged into their accounts on the PC. They have child accounts. Absolutely no issues using the machine, browsing etc. I then logged back into my main acc after. As I was checking a few things I went into reliability history and noted two messages for each time my children logged into their accounts saying 'family safety monitor stopped working'. I guess most don't check or will notice but wondered if anyone had picked up on the same?

After that, my second monitor stopped working. The system won't identify it anymore. I've tried another cable, I've rebooted many times, I've tried updating the specific Intel Graphics driver, I've tried uninstalling it and installing manually another one ( I can't get this one done because when I'm running the manually downloaded driver there's a message saying I have to contact the manufacturer).

I have a Windows 10 laptop and an external monitor. The monitor was working perfectly for a few weeks, until one day I switched on the laptop to find that the monitor was no longer working. Going to 'Display Settings' only showed one monitor, and pressing 'Detect' said 'Didn't detect another display'.

After updating all drivers, then purchasing new leads and adapters for the monitor, I still couldn't get it to work. Then I stumbled upon the 'Hardware and devices' troubleshooter which, after restarting my computer, made it work.

Less than a week later, I just restarted my machine and suddenly it's not working again. This time, the troubleshooter isn't fixing it. Every time, it just says to restart my computer to finish applying updates/drivers but restarting doesn't help.

Anyone have ideas how I can fix this?

I have upgraded to Windows 10 first my laptop and, more recently, my desktop. I use Reliability Monitor daily.

There are two further such reports today within a minute of one another. My laptop has not reported this event so far. Everything in Windows+S>Settings is set to off on both machines - I do not want Cortana. Settings>Privacy is set to much the same on both machines, except in Speech, inking and typing. I see that my desktop is set to "Get to know me" and my laptop is set to "Stop getting to know me". I wonder if any other users have advice to overcome my issue in this minefield of settings that Windows 10 offers.

I already posted something about this to other topic so you can just ignore that.

So, I have an external monitor (Benq G series), which worked just fine on my Win XP. This morning I installed Win 7 on my computer and it stopped working. It says No signal and it cannot be detected no matter what I try.

So could it be the drivers or something? I used to have some ATI graphic card, don't remember which one, but now it says I have:

Standard VGA graphics adapter
8 bit

Graphic memory usable 16 MB

So this has changed? What can I do to get back what I had before and will this help fixing the monitor problem?
Thanks a lot!

EDIT: Ok problem solved! If anyone else has the same problem follow the link: Standard VGA Drivers??

We have several user accounts setup on each of our machines including some child accounts. We have noticed for the last 3 days that when logging into our child accounts that the little family safety icon that normally resides in the system tray in bottom right has been missing in action. A quick check in reliability history reports that 'family safety monitor' stopped working everytime we logged into a child acc consistently for three days solid. As this is happening on all our machines I presume it's not a local issue but an MS server side issue. I just wondered if anyone else uses child accounts and are noticing the same?

That is strange. -- First try a System Restore to a date before you had the problem. This will put your PC exactly like it was as of the date you choose.

New to this forum. Hope you can help.

I have been using an external monitor (Samsung PX2370) with my Toshiba laptop (about 2 years old), connected via an HDMI cable. Up until today it has been working fine. This morning the audio stopped working. Now the laptop does not find the external monitor at all when connected via HDMI. I can connect fine with the VGA cable. I have tried a new HDMI cable but it doesn't help.

Any ideas would be most welcome



A:HDMI connection to second monitor has stopped working

Is there anything blocking the HDMI ports on the computer and the monitor? you may want to clean them with compressed air.

If that doesn't help try connecting the laptop to another monitor or TV via HDMI so you can determine if it is the HDMI on the computer or the monitor.

I recently got a ,message at the bottom of my screen saying that my display driver had stopped working.
This occurred after opening an online game, after the pop up my screen flashed and then my PC re-booted.
When it re-booted my screen was messed up and has been since, i have no clue on what is going on so help would be much appreciated.

A:Monitor Problems after display driver stopped working.

That doesn't look too good! The fact that the display is like that outside of windows probably points to a hardware fault. Does it look like it as soon as the machine is switched on? I.e. prior to windows starting?

I tried installing a new video card, which wasn't much luck. But after I put the Radeon 3650 back in the internal video card was detected. I hooked up my second monitor to that one, which since I do not run any graphics intensive programs on this computer isn't a big deal.

Not my favorite fix, but it works so. Yeah.

So this happened before. I bring my computer over to a friends house for a couple days, then when bringing it back to my house and hooking it back up the mic does not want to work with skype or any program that records.

Had this happen last week then it just fixed itself. As of right now everything is plugged in the right spot, all the checks and green bars move when i talk into it in the windows settings. Even when I go to monitor mic option i can hear fine, it is working.

Just for some reason it is not working with any chat program. It is not working in skype, steam, and windows recording. WTF is going on here

A:Mic stopped working with programs, works fine with monitor check?!

Check that the device the mic is currently plugged into is set as the default device:

The level indicator and monitoring functions will still work for non default devices, but only the default device will be used with applications (unless the applications themselves have the option to override this).

A:multi monitor display oddities - system stopped working

Hello rst Welcome to the Seven Forums!

When running a player or even the software viewer for the tv tuner/capture card here and moving it over from the primary display to the second with the extended desktop the full screen playback is still only seen on the primary.

Here I use the UltraMon program for dusl display where you have the option to switch which monitor or in your case tv or monitor will be the primary with a right click and check off the monitor 1 or monitor 2 item in the right click menu's Set Primary option for setting which will be the default display.

UltraMon, DisplayFusion, and others are 3rd party help for things like that or offering a Smart type task bar extension over to the second monitor when extending the desktop. For full screen playback there you would temporary set the primary for the tv when going to watch anything full screen.

A:Epson cx6600 worked fine, then stopped - want to uninstall

You overlooked something.... resolution

The problem is solved.... Two problems..... I had forgotten to sign on as an administrator, so it would give me an error every time. I signed on as administrator in my system win2k and I then began to remove all the epson applications. The printer software, however, is listed together in the add/remove program section and I had several epson entries. I was inadvertently trying to remove an epson c860 which has been dead for awhile. It gave me a window to reply , but it was hidden under other windows. When I discovered it, I realized that when I asked to remove the epson printer it was pointing to c860 instead of the cx6600. When I didn't reply to the small window to confirm c860 removal, it seemed to go off into lala land, so I would just cancel the whole thing. AFter I pointed to the right printer (cx6600 series), it removed it, but gave no indication that it did. I checked the register and all references to it were removed, so I proceeded to install the printer again. This time it worked, and everything is o.k.

The mouse started to stray and stopped working in the middle of doing something, i.e. eBay, typing word and etc. which is very annoying and first of all, I lose all of the work done due to stopping of the mouse.

However, the mouse started working as if nothing wrong, once I restarted by 'force' restart ..... pushing the button in the middle of the PC. Otherwise, the PC is all fine and working OK.

I did apply Malwarebytes to combat the issue, however the issue does not resolve.

Any help on this would be truoly appreciated.


A:Mouse stopped working in the middle of working, i.e. eBay, typing word, etc.

Did you try a different mouse? If you still have the same problem with a new mouse, see if there are any drivers for the mouse from it's manufacturers web site.
Also try a Clean Boot, if that works, then add one startup item at a time till the mouse acts weird again, then you know that is the problematic program.

Two new motherboards tells us you made the same simple install error in both of them.
Tell us more about power supply, memory, cable.
Did you make sure the memory was correct for both new boards, and what is the memory on the old board. Would also like to know the power supply and other hard ware.
What happens with the most basic, simple install. Does everything light up?

If you used the same hard drive with the same Windows install on the two motherboards, that is the problem. Windows has detected that you have changed the motherboard and will not operate unless you reinstall Windows on the drive on each new motherboard... One install for each motherboard.
My guess is that you will be fine if you change hard drives or do reinstalls or repair installs of the Windows on the new motherboard.

I want to uninstall Process Monitor. I don't use it. I don't need it. I just had it up a minute ago to look through it and after I closed it, it started grabbing 90% to 100% of the CPU. I've also had a couple of programs object to the fact that I had a debugger running - when I didn't know there was a debugger running or even realize I had such a thing. SO - I am thinking - maybe that issue is related. I'm pretty sure I can just reboot and get Process Monitor to stop hogging all my system resources. The issue is, I just want rid of it and can find no way to uninstall. No listing in Add/Remove Programs. It doesn't show up in Revo Uninstaller. No uninstaller came with the program. Can anybody help?Thanks.Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:How do I UNINSTALL Process Monitor?

SysInternals' ProcessMonitor comes either in ZIP or ZIP SFX distribution archive. It has no setup program. You just unzip/extract the contents to a folder and start using it. As such, it cannot be uninstalled. If you no longer want it, then you may delete it.

I recently bought a DVI cable to plug my external LG monitor to my laptop to run nVidia's DualView (stretch format) across the two monitors. I'm using a beta driver (169.04 from, and when I enter nVidia control panel and go into the setup additional monitors tab, it only lets me choose "choose only ONE monitor". So I did that just to test that my monitor was plugged in right, and it worked. So I KNOW that my monitor is working and is being recognized by Vista. But when going into display settings byt right clicking on my desktop, it also only recognizes 1 monitor. Is it my beta display driver messing my Vista up? Or what could it be?
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thank you

A:Solved: Dual monitor in Vista not working. Only showing 1 monitor.

for drivers to work properly in vista i'm pretty sure you have to have signed drivers, since it's beta are you sure they are signed?

this is a horrid problem I m setting up a new-to-me hp system I have a somewhat oldish compaq flat panel monitor it looked fine with the old system I had planned to remove now reconsidering the display looks HORRIBLE with the new system using two different videos onboard intel and or PCI x nvidia geforce gs The problem seems to be that I How a Registry, and to Monitor uninstall different from install one installed the monitor driver that HP provided on their site and its not good so I try to uninstall it - it was one of those big packaged things that installs a folder then a bunch of stuff and presumably driver drivers I found it in the list of How to uninstall Monitor from Registry, and install a different one programs and did a Windows XP control panel quot remove quot using the Add Remove programs function It removed a bunch of stuff but left the video drivers Windows Registry will not let me manually remove the reg entries because the drivers load everytime no matter what monitor I use i have a lab monitor that I use to work on things a generic quot flat panel no matter how I try to work around using safe mode or any other means I cannot get the driver excised So I thought quot why not just install another driver quot I managed to get windows controls to let me pick quot Plug and PLay monitor quot but it isn t really using the generic driver if I look in the device manager it shows quot plug amp play quot but if i use the video card or embedded display panel that intel and nvidia provide it shows quot compaq quot monitor and everytime I restart windows it says quot can t find file quot for the compaq monitor I m at the hair pulling stage I found a generic COMPAQ driver called quot monitcpq quot that gets pretty good reviews on the various forums but the batch file fails its looking for the whole wad of stuff to be in one particular folder but it doesn t bother to instruct me as to what folder all these files should be in so I ve had no success trying to get the stuff loaded This batch file and group of files includes a number of monitors and I suppose I ll just pick the generic Presario quot monitor and give it a shot So can you help pls the onboard video looks fine on the quot generic monitor in case you were wondering I dunno how the nvidia would look with it since the strange little card defaults to DVI which the generic monitor does not support and the secondary vga dongle does not default as the primary monitor it assumes dual monitor and its number thanks for any advice my next move is to dump this whole idea and go back to my old system z nbsp

It seems like you've eliminated everything except the video cable. If replacing the VGA cable doesn't work, then try resetting the CMOS. Use this reference guide from Dell on how to do this.

I'm working on a computer that needed more RAM. I got the correct RAM and installed. When I turned on the computer, the monitor wasn't working. I uninstalled the RAM, checked all the monitor connections, tried three different monitors but the monitor still would not work.

I must be missing a connection for the monitor. It is placed directly into the slots in the computer - similar to adding RAM. That is the only connection. Am I missing something?

Thanks in advance

Yesterday, my monitor stopped displaying anything. This started happening a few days ago but after a few reboots it would display again. However, it has permanently not displayed anything since yesterday.

I have two spare monitors which I have tried to use. However, the plugs do not match; therefore, I can't test it out on a different monitor.

The possible parts which I think could be causing the problem are the video card, PSU, motherboard, or the monitor. When I boot the computer, the video card fan is spinning so I am not sure if that is the problem.

I would like some suggestions and opinions on this. Thanks

I guess this belongs in hardware. Anyway, basically here's what happened. A few weeks ago the monitor worked fine. I went to sleep and my mom came in in the morning to use my computer to pay bills. My Ethernet cable was hooked up to my PS2 and I didn't want to get out of bed, so I told her how to plug it into the computer. Next she turned on my computer and all the sudden the monitor stopped turning on. It's a nice flat panel monitor and I'd rather not have to get rid of it. I've tried plugging it in and out of the computer, blew the dust off, etc.
Still won't work.
Is there any hope for this monitor?

A:My monitor stopped turning on

Try disconnecting it from the computer and turning it on. You should get some indication, at least for a few moments, that it's not connected to the computer. Failing that, something probably is wrong with the hardware.

A:- Help - Extended monitor and laptop monitor not working

It's stuck in an extended screen it seems, boot into Safe Mode while you have all external monitors unplugged - Your Display is probably set to a resolution too high for both the external monitor and the laptop monitor, so you'll have to try "Boot to VGA mode" and I don't know where that is in the Windows 8 Boot GUI, if it is even in there at all.
Here is is- There are several ways to get to that from the Boot screen:

I have recently built a new box with a clean install of Windows 7. Initially I only had 1 monitor and things worked fine. I decided to add a second monitor and that is when the problems started.

When the system boots both monitors display all of the bootup information and and both monitors display the Windows 7 Startup screens. This tells me both monitors and connections are good.

Once Windows loads only monitor 2 has a display on it. Monitor 1 is blank. I have check and both monitors are running the same, and latest drivers. I have gone into windows and it shows two monitors, but I can not get a display on monitor 1.

This is the first time I have had dual monitors so it may very well be a user error, but I am pretty computer literate.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Hi there @Beelady11, Welcome to the HP Support Forums! It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts and other support personnel.  I understand that one display is not working with your new computer, but it works with an older one without trouble. I am happy to help you with this. What is the model of the display you are trying to use?Have you checked for drivers for that display?What type of connection are you using to the computer? (VGA/DVI/HDMI)Are you using the exact same connection on the computer when you test with another display? There is a possibility that if you are testing using different connectors, that the ones on the board itself are disabled. This would depend on whether a video card is installed or if you are using the integrated display adapter.See the: HP Pavilion 550-179na Desktop PC Product Specifications and you will seethe following note for the integrated graphics adapter.Integrated video is not available if a graphics card is installed.This means that the on-board video connections, linked to the integrated adapter would be disabled. Please let me know how that works for you, and if it does resolve your issue, please mark this post as a solution. Kudos would also be appreciated.

I have an ASUS VS247HR monitor plugged into my pc with a hdmi cable which worked fine, until suddenly my screen went black and it didnt work anymore. I wasnt doing anything with it when it happened. Eventually I got it working with a VGA cable but it doesnt recognize my monitor any longer as an ASUS monitor, it just says "Generic PnP Monitor". I checked for driver updates if that had screwed things up and it did, so I rolled it back but I still have the problemI would really like to be able to use my HDMI cable because VGA lowers my resolution to 1024x768

That's strange, according to what I saw in Google the native resolution for that monitor is 1920x1080. I use a monitor with the same native resolution on Win 10 (previously Win 8.1) and it is happy to select that as default without HDMI.It might be worth trying the monitor on another computer to see how it behaves because right now I'm not sure whether it is the monitor or computer that is at fault.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Last year my Toshiba laptop's VGA input broke so I have been using an adapter that lets me plug a VGA cable from my Dell monitor to the laptop's USB input. It worked perfectly from the start then last week it stopped working.

I sent it back to the retailer for repair but they said it worked fine once they installed the drivers, and sent it back to me. I've installed those drivers and the third monitor did briefly pick up a signal but after I rebooted the monitor is no longer to be seen.

My mouse runs off the laptop monitor as if it's going somewhere but it's definitely not to the Dell monitor. In CP/Display settings the Dell monitor is not found.

I've tried different combinations of monitors and cables but no go. Please can someone suggest a fix?

Thanks in advance

A:Third monitor on j5Create adapter stopped showing up

Hi again, since submitting this request I have some new information about the problem. On the advice of the retailer I uninstalled, rebooted, reinstalled, rebooted and then managed to get the third monitor working.
However, after an hour it kept disconnecting and reconnecting, disconnecting and reconnecting so I have pulled it out again.
This morning when I plug it back in my laptop doesn't react to the new USB device and it is not showing the third monitor.

The retailer is saying it's a driver issue but to me it sounds like the device is faulty, especially as it gets quite hot to touch.

When xp starts loading, the screen goes blank, no matter if in safe mode or not, and thats it. How do I make the saveVGA enabled or reinstall my adapter driver without being able to see the screen?

A:My videocard stopped sending signal to my monitor

it sounds like you may have fried something. For future reference, always make sure there is no power going to the motherboard before you work on anything hardware related. This means either turning off the switch on the back of the power supply, or unplugging the power cable.
At this point your best bet is to try a different video card so you can find out what is at fault.
