  • Monitor Problems

    Hi,
    I recently have had a problem when turning on my machine. When getting to the signing in page where my password is needed, i get the message on a black screen, input signal out of range, and am given 20 seconds to make a connection before the monitor goes onto standby. I have no idea why this had happened or how to fix it. The mouse and keyboard do not react to movement and i dont know what to do, please help me!!!!

      Hi jac

      Welcome to Free PC Help

      When the pc starts tap F8 to get into safe mode then change the settings of the graphics to a supported setting. You can also try changing the refresh rate to a setting the monitor supports.

        Restart the computer and tap the F8 key and go into SAFE MODE

        While in there go to Control Panel / Display and change it to 800x600 and then restart your computer and see if that fixes it.

              You could try system restore..may work.
              System restore.
              Tap f8 while your system is starting up.
              Choose safe mode with command prompt.
              Log on as admin.
              At command prompt type
              %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

              Or.
              Turn the computer off and disconnect it from the power
              Take off the side of the case and touch the bare metal chassis to discharge static.
              Remove Video card from their slot

              Reseat Video card.

                or - get to the startup menu as you've done by tapping the F8 key. If there's an option to boot to Last Known Good Configuration, try that.

                What seems to be happening here is that the resolution is too high for your monitor. It could also be a bad monitor or a bad video card.

                It's disturbing that you couldn't get it to work in Safe Mode. In Safe Mode.

                  Well something else going on if the monitor is doing that while starting SAFE MODE as it automatically goes to 640x480 at 60Hz to prevent any video issues.

                  Do you have another computer there or a friend near by where you can test your monitor on their system. It could be a hardware issue with the monitor or a hardware issue with your computer. Using the monitor on another computer should help to pin point which one is having the issue.
