Hi, bought a gaming PC tower (with a top class nVidia graphics card) for the kids, Xmas, but sent it back cos of a couple of probs. It's arrived back with me and some problems persist. When I switch on and boot-up (I assume it's booting up, as I can't see a screen), the Phillips LCD monitor stays black and the following message floats around - Attention - No Video Input The keyboard light will also go off after booting up, and remain off. The same problems did sporadically happen before I sent it back (No Video Input message & …

Hi, I wanted to setup dual monitor, before trying to purchase I looked up at few articles and forums and most of them had language suggesting it is easy and straight forward. I visited 4 stores and they wasn't sure what they are talking about, 2 of them directly denied that there is any such thing as dual monitor and rest of the 2 wasn't sure about what will work and what not. I have a HD monitor, Intel i5-4460, 8GB and H81M-S motherboard with single vga output. I don't have graphics card, but from few searches I assumed it …

Hello, I do not know a lot about computers, so I know this is a long shot. However I really need advice! I have just got a new computer tower (its second hand) and a monitor from a family member. Both monitor and tower were in full working order before I brought them home. However, I attatched my own monitor and my partner altered the resolution, this worked fine. However, when I next turned my computer on a message comes up on the computer saying `monitor is going to sleep` this happens on both monitors, and I have no idea …

My toshiba laptop screen suddenly turned black,but if looking closely you can still barely see what is on the screen, like the screen saver turned it self on, but I restarted my computer many times and it loads up but still no results. I had this problem about 4 months ago, so i called toshiba helpline and they were very helpful and gave me instructions while on the phone. The guy on the phone told me to shut down the system, unplug it, take the battery out and press ON button for 20 seconds, then realise the finger and wait …

Hey there! I have a problem with my computer. When I start my pc, it loads fine, I can go to the BIOS, it passes the POST successfully and so on. I can run the Hiren's Boot CD with no problem and it doesn't lose signal or shuts down, but if I boot into the Windows, the monitor loses signal right after it starts loading, but the CPU Fan and the case fan continues to work.

How can I tell if my emachines monitor is the problem or if it's the cord. The monitor (which is about1 1/2-2 years old) all of a sudden quit working so I bought a new power cord (in the meantime I used an older monitor) which worked for about a day but now has quit working also. For a while I was getting nothing from the monitor, but now if I plug the cord in (by the way, the monitor is now in an upside down position) and wait a couple of seconds the blue light comes on. Then it …

Hi folks. Some urgent help needed. I'm using an Acer V193W monitor out of a Nvidia GTX 960 card. DVI output to VGA input via a converter. I've used this configuration before and it used to work perfectly. Correct 1440x900 resolution. Since then I've only changed the cable and converter and now suddenly the resolution won't display correctly. Nvidia Control Panal shows 1024x768 as the native resolution and "Analog Display" as the monitor. Even though Device Manager on my Windows 7 machine says the Acer V193W driver is properly installed. I also just updated the Nvidia driver. No luck. What …

I was asked to come by a friends house to fix a monitor problem she had, but now I have one. She came to pick me up, and I put my monitor in her trunk for the ride, which was about 10 minutes. I forgot that she had a small kicker box in her trunk.When I got home and reconnected my monitor, the screen is now a greenish color. Is there any way to fix it, maybe demagnetize the screen? I have seen this happen to tv's, and it usually wears off after a period of time. Does this hold …

Hello, all. I'm presenting you with an issue that's persisted for about a month now (started December 10 2015). I have an Pavilion 15 Notebook PC that I purchased on April 1 2015 with Windows 8.1 installed (warranty is good until March 31 2016), and up until the mentioned December date my device had been working fine. But ever since then, my laptop has decided to have its screen go black at intermittent intervals. Not dimmed, flickering, or anything like that, but just black. Any playing sound will be cut off as well. The power button (and sometimes my mute …

I recently invested in getting a samsung 245bw 24inch monitor and it was fine for the first few days. After those I started to get little blue stars (size of one pixel) in my games of counterstrike scattered randomly across the screen. These would also appear in the screenshots and would glow like before. I was pretty sure that it wasn't something actually wrong with the game though, because when zooming in on the spot it still remained the same size. Over the last few days I've experienced blue horizontal lines (1 pixel high) slashing across my screen at random …

I've done some wonky research. So far I understood: *Particular questions that I'm asking are written in Italic hence Bold texts are not visible with this font.* "IPS is way better with color precision and contrast. But has problems with "ghosting", it generally looks like someone hasn't compiled video well. Also, adds some delay. Doesn't allow clear text reading. When text is moving" "TN is way better with reaction time, and has no ghosting. But pays a little bit with color precision and contrast. Allows easy text reading." I'm a decent gamer. People are telling that their TN's have 2ms, …

I have a new Mac Mini but an old Dell monitor. A while back I had a monitor display problem, and I'm not sure what I did to correct it, but the issue went away. Now it's back. First of all, everything has taken on a green tinge. Secondly, the font is stretched too wide. Thirdly, the default for display setting is 800 x 600 which is ridiculously too large. The only other option is choosing SCALED for a resolution of 1280 x 1024 which is still not right. There must be a quick and easy solution to this, as …

The backstory: We had a "power issue" here a few days ago and now our Samsung SyncMaster 931b is not working. The blue power light around the button flashes and every second or so the display will flicker with light and you can briefly (for 200ms or so, I'd guess) see the display. From what I gather, this is due to a voltage flicker through the transistors in the power supply tricking the monitor into thinking it's being shut down so I take it apart and notice three swollen caps on the power supply board (Samsung IP-35155A, components C113, C112, …

I've been editing on a (windows based) desktop and now want and need to transition to notebook computers. I've been assured that notebook computers are now showing specs that can rival any desktop based system (if you have the $$$). Specially HP's Z-Book series which is built with video and content creation in mind. However, due to budget constraints I am looking at the Acer Aspire V17 Nitro Black Edition as a possible candidate. It sports a fast i7 processor, with 16GB RAM and an Nvidia GTX-860M video card. My question is that do the more compact M-series of Nvidia …

The Google Glass wearable computing 'enhanced reality' project got off the ground this week at the Google I/O Developers Conference in San Francisco earlier this week. Around 6,000 developers were present to see a demonstration of the futuristic technology which integrates a small video-display suspended from the arm of the headset which is worn like a pair of spectacles. Complete with Internet connectivity, a battery in the arm and the ability to change the perspective of the video stream as you move your head, the Google Glass prototype is no heavier than a standard pair of sunglasses and just as …
