Q: windows7 update now my monitor and key board wont work.

I have a pc running windows 7 pro 64 bit, I received a update from windows and when the computer rebooted my monitor and key board will not work. I don't know what to do now, I can't even get it to boot in safe mode. Any Ideas?


Preferred Solution: windows7 update now my monitor and key board wont work.

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 http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Do you have the Windows disk. Boot from the disk and choose Repair.

I just got a Asus A8N-SLI mother board and a pny 7800gt video card. The card only works in the bottom pci express slot though, when i try to plug into the top the monitor light keeps blinking like nothings going through. Everything seems to work fine when in the bottom slot but i am worried about the heat. I have my sound card close to that so theres not much flow between like their would be in the top slot. (also the top slot is blue, bottom is black, if that makes a difference) I left the default set at single card mode on the motherboard. Also being in that slot is the card running at full capacity? 16x?
My other specs are:
1gb Corsair value select ram
Antec 450Watt SmartPower 2.0 PSU
AMD 64 3700


A:Video card wont work in top PCI Express slot on sli board

mmm... Check out the BIOS option for the SLI cause it could be that just one slot is enabled (the bottom on)...
about the heat issue... can you move the sound card to another slot?...

Without more details about your motherboard, it sounds like your memory is not seated properly, or you damaged it when you took it out.

Going crazy...please help.

I built my new computer tonight, however it won't start. There is power to the motherboard, because I can hear and see the fans when I turn it on, however the CPU fan doesn't move. It initially spins a rotation or two and that is it. It (fan on CPU) does the same thing when I power it off, just a initial spin but doesn't move. Any ideas...I would be so grateful. Here are my system specs (all bought from Newegg)

Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Conroe 2.66GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor
GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard
Rosewill RP550-2 ATX12V v2.01 550W Power Supply
4stick of - G.SKILL 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
APEVIA X-JUPITER-JR G-Type X-JPJGT-BK Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Thanks so much!

A:Built new computer, normal fans work, but CPU fan doesn't spin, board wont power

Sounds like a power supply problem, or a error in connecting a cable. Thus the shot spin of the cpu fan. But usually you just missed something too obvious to think about.
Reseat all cables. Reseat all memory modules. Then try it with one or two memory modules at a time. Then switch to the others.
Check your CPU for proper seating, and possible bent pin.
When no longer frustrated, think through everything you have done in the setup, even the heat sink and thermal paste.
We have all gone through this. We know has exasperated you must feel.

Okey my problem is that when i try to start my computer the monitor wont start, it stays black and nothing happens.
I have tried with another monitor but the same problem there, and when i tried my monitor on my laptop it worked in the beginning so it should be something with the hardware.
Everything is brand new except for the RAM.
I hade exactly the same problem with my other older computer but i had several problems with that computer, but i say again, The CPU, GPU, PSU and the motherboard are all brand new.
I really hope someone can help me now cause it's really important that i have a working computer.

A:The monitor wont work!

It would help if you told us what your hardware is. if your mobo hasonboard raphics make sure that the onboard graphics are disabled since you are using a video card.

The problem is with the computer, not the monitor. Is this a brand new computer? Used? Has it ever booted? Do you hear any fans starting? Beeping? Any indications whatsoever that it's actually starting up?

When I connect this monitor, it displays fine, until Windows starts (XP) and then the display goes dark. Do I need to get a driver for this monitor, or what? This monitor looks as if it just came out of the box and has beautiful color upon boot. I really would appreciate some help using it.

I should probably start off with I do not know much about computers, so please bare with me and talk in simple people talk . Okay my problem is my mothers computer will not work. It boots up and the lights flash and seems to work but the monitor goes to stand by right off the bat and the keyboard lights up in the begining but then won't work either. I have plugged in another monitor and keyboard (that I know work) with the same problems. I took the battery (cmos?) out and put it back in (someone else recommended doing that) and it did not help any. Anyone have any ideas on what the problem can be? The computer was not a year old when this starting happening, if that helps.

Thank you so much in advance for any advice.

I am not sure if this is in the correct section of the forums, so apologies if it isnt! I have a GTX 660ti. When plugged into my 1080p television, it works perfectly. However, when I plug in my 17" dell flatpanel, it says "not supported" across the screen. Is my GPU too advanced for me to use a small monitor? I have tried changing my resolution much lower, then turning the pc off, then plugging in the 17", still not supported. Is there something I have to do in bios?


A:GPU wont work with small monitor?

hiya,start your PC tapping F8 to get into safe mode,once in safe mode go to start and type msconfig in the search box,click the boot tab and put a tick in the "Base Video" box and click OK.reboot and everything will be big because it is t its lowest resolution,from here you can adjust the screen resolution to what you want,remember to go back to msconfig and remove the tick from Base Video

So I have been using an old Samsung monitor my dad gave me, I have no idea the model, but its connected by a VGA cable with a DVI cable adapter and plugged into my GTX 970. My other monitor has been working and extending perfectly fine until last night where it just wouldn't display anything. Its an Asus vg248qe. Its connected via displayport straight to the graphics card as well.

When I open Nvidia control panel and go to set up multiple monitors the monitor is there but I can't check the box to use it. Like this https://gyazo.com/85690bab454843c7c3aa4a5cb1a160d0

I thought it was windows 10 not detecting it so I reverted back to windows 7 ultimate. I cant find a thread like this so I thought I would make my own, please help, this is so frustrating.

Edit: I also looked into windows monitor control panel and when i choose "extend" it just says "unable to save settings" like this: https://gyazo.com/5f27c180672547a792c7429af24f6ffa . The monitor is registered just not being able to be used.

Hi, I have a Dell GX 260 pc. It has always worked fine, but has a tiny harddrive. With all the updates and the software I need the harddrive was becoming too full. I put a bigger harddrive in, but when I switched the computer on to put the new operating system on, the monitor (which has always worked) seems not to receive the signal. The light just stays orange. The computer is making all the right noises. I put the original harddrive back in, but still the monitor wont work. The monitor is a flat screen one which is alot newer than the pc. Any ideas on how to resolve this? It was working fine before.

A:Dell monitor wont work

check the cables internally and that you have not knocked anything by mistake as you added the harddrive

Also when you put the VGA cable back onto the PC - check to see if any pins are bent - very easy to bend a pin on those connectors and still connect and screw up

Thanks in advance for any and all help!

I just received a new monitor (15" CRT) over the holidays. It was successfully recognized as a "generic plug n' play" and installed immediately. The previous monitor used was set @800x600 and appeared to fill the screen correctly.

However, the monitor, while installing without any difficulties, was only able to be sized to 640x480 and appears too large for the screen. when i manually set the "DISPLAY" settings to the old original 800x600, i get what appears to be the proper prospective on the screen, but i loose the toolbar at the bottom along with all the data underneath it (the tray, start tab, quick launch, address window, etc) and the overall picture, while similar to the original obtained with the older monitor, still "feels" peculiar-

The pix quality is super, and as i said, there's nothing wrong overall other than the size seems too large which presumably would have been corrected by a shift to 800x600- but at the expense of no toolbar and the info that goes along with it immediately underneath the toolbar (clock, tray, start tab,etc)

any help would be genuinely appreciated-

many thanks

I thought my desk needed reorganising this morning, so I thought i'd switch the computer off (which was working just fine, totally 100% no problems at all). I unplugged everything at the back, whilst it was off so i didnt electricute myself obviously and then moved the tower into another section of my desk. When i plugged everything back into the back of the PC, including the monitor. I went to turn it on. I did, the power light came on, the fan started spinning and the cd drive lights started flashing. Sounds good. But as i looked to my monitor it just said "no signal 6-5-4-3-2-1"
It was working fine before. Ive checked that the cable is in correctly, Ive ensured its not bent or trapped anywhere and still the same problem. Ive even tried to move the monitor back to where it was originally! But that still didnt work?
Any suggestions what has happened?

I have an NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+ and two days ago my monitor stopped showing my normal resolution, if i go into the NVIDIA control panel, i select an option in resolution to "Show Resolutions not exposed by the display" and force it into 1680x1050 but when i play certain games which take the resolution of my monitor's settings, those games are messed up because it still only sees the.
"800x600, 1024x768, 1152x864, 1280x720, 1280x768, 1280x800, 1280x960, 1280x1024, 1360x768, 1600x900, 1600x1024, 1600x1200"

Which unless i force my my monitor in my NVIDIA panel to show more, it only shows this when i click for resolution.

I am running Vista 64.


Another problem is i accidently set my 1st Monitor input to "out of range" and i do not own a P2 keyboard so i cannot go into safe mode to change the resolution back to something that shows something.

Is there a way to change the resolution while in windows, or start in safemode from windows? and how do i fix the first problem.

Also, I have gone through a checklist I found on another webpage and EVERYTHING seems to be installed correctly.

then 1 beep and two seconds after another 2 beeps.

then a little break on a few seconds

well, I hope that subject heading was descriptive enough for all you fine folks.

To get down to the bones of the problem, I just built a new computer almost from the ground up, I salvaged only my hard drive and my processor from my old computer (A 7200 WD 200gig and a P4 3.0gHz HT, respectively) as the ram slots on my old motherboard decided to die. That, and it was kinda eh.

I upgraded to a NEW motherboard, a BioStar TSeries 945P v2.0 LGA775 with the 1066/800mHz FSB, got a new case with a 500watt power supply, new PNY DDR2 RAM, and hooked everything up properly. Alas, I plug the monitor into my video card(the board has no onboard video. The card is an ATI Radeon x600 from the old machine) and I get that little pop/crackle(it's a CRT) that tells me it feels somthing, but all it gives is the monitor test and a blinking green light when I turn the machine on. It's like it's not even plugged into anything.

I certainly hope this isn't an issue with the motherboard. I'm using the risers so I know it's not grounding to the plate, and it's literally brand new. I AM very green on building computers, though. So perhaps I messed something up. I can go into more detail if anyone would like.

Thanks in advance.

A:Built a new computer, monitor wont work.

Did you install a floppy drive? That would enable you to do a basic test with the hard drive disconnected and a boot to a floppy disc.
The pop/crackle could just be the monitor receiving power.
What do you mean by "monitor test"?

I have a 20? gateway 900G monitor. It was working fine for the 3 years I have had it. Then randomly today I restarted my computer and it wouldn?t work. I boot in safe mode and it works fine. Just when I get past the windows loading screen it then tells me that I have no signal. This happens in both XP and Vista. Linux runs fine still. The computer tells me it cannot find a monitor plugged in at all. The video card I have is a two DVI port X1650 pro. I used a DVI to VGA converter and connected a second VGA monitor to the second port and Windows boots just fine in that monitor but the other one once again went blank past the boot screen. I have no idea why my monitor won?t work. My computer is a 3.4 GHZ Pentium 4 with 3 gigs of ram.

The screen on my new laptop has gone blank on starting up, it shows nothing, i tried a hard reset which didn't fix. The external monitor won't display anything.
It's a HP envy 15-j112tx running windows 8. With a hdmi connection i tried to connect to an external monitor. The monitor was previously using vga to a desktop, i unplugged that and connected my dvi cable to the dvi port. The monitor says check video connection then goes to sleep. I connected the cables with the laptop turned off and again with the laptop already on. The monitor still says check video connection. The connection is secure, it is a new cord. I pressed the F4 button to switch between screens and waited inbetween presses but still nothing.

It is still under warranty. I disabled the nvidia graphics card a few days ago to try n save on power usage, as it also has an intel graphics card. It has worked fine for a few days since i did that.
Now that i've powered it on/off about 5 times the hard drive stops whirring after about a minute, yet the power button light remains on. It no longer turns off when i hold power for even a minute. I dont want to kill the thing.

Can anyone help me, i can't find an answer in previous threads.

Help please, I've been having some issues with my computer and its driving me nuts. It all started when I got a virus/malware. It was a antivirus scam called "Security Essentials 2010". I removed it with the help of this website "myantispyware". After the removal, I had some problems with my computer.

When I tried to hibernate my computer, nothing happens. A screen shows up saying "preparing to hibernate" and then after a few seconds, it returns back to my window and does not hibrnate. Is this a virus?

Please help me. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you very much!

A:Windows update wont work

Hi, I just post a few minutes ago. My second problem after the removal of "Security Essentials 2010" is that some of my google searches has been redirected to another site. I would have to go back and click on the link several times before I actually get to the site I wanted. Thanks for any help.

First thing that happened was that Internet Explorer stopped working. It acts like it wants to go to my home page and then locks up. Luckily I had firefox to get back online. Tried windows update by the button in control panel and also just accessing the page from Google and it wont load at all. I have spybot, adaware, malwarebytes, superantispyware and avg and I can't get any of them to update. It just gives me an error. Found one registry change with the spybot scan, but other than that I haven't been able to find anything. Also I've been getting the fake Anti virus pop ups as well as my pages just going to various real estate sites and even random you tube videos from time to time. Heres my hijack log.

Hi, I have just updated my laptop using this HP patch: sp63774.exeIt was supposed to fix a problem of the Recovery Environment that slows down after upgrading from Win 8.0 to Win 8.1Now, I cannot enter the Recovery Partition.It justs gets stuck after the message:  "Please Wait...".  I don't get any options to recover the System. Just a Black screen. link to patch   (Software-Solutions section) Please help. Thank you.

A:Recovey Partition wont work after HP update.

Hi @jose2016, Thank you for your inquiry. I understand that you updated Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 and you were experiencing an issue with the recovery manager. You downloaded HP sp63774.exe but when you installed it you got a "please wait" screen and no options to do a recovery.  First, I would try a hard recovery or forced reset.  HP Notebook PCs - Use Hard Reset to Resolve Hardware and Software Issues. Please remember to remove all peripheral devices such as USBs, printers, external monitors or external hard drives.Did you create your recovery media before you updated your notebook to Windows 8.1?Can you boot into safe mode? HP PCs - Windows Safe Mode (Windows 10, 8).   Just to let you know the link you provided above is for HP Pavilion g6-2221ev  and does not have  sp63774.exe but, I did locate it on the software and driver page for the model you listed as yours.  Please let me know the outcome.

Trying to fix the PC of a relation. I think they clicked on one of those fake online virus scanners that has riddled their PC with malware. At the moment i think there's some sort of keylogger or monitoring software on it. Firefox / IE homepage is set to facebook and can't be changed.

AVG free crashes on full scan.
MBAM crashes on full scan - works on quick scan, finds nothing.
Avast crashes on full scan.
Spybot S&D scans and found stuff, removed it, scans and finds nothing.

Can't access windows update, avast constantly gives warnings about various nefarious activity on the machine, blocks it but I can't seem to find a fix.

Am not currently in front of the PC but have run gmer and it found nothing but will run it again and post the log here later.

I've run HijackThis and will include the log here. Any help appreciated.

I recently restarted my computer to install a number of windows 7 updates, up until then it was running fine. On restart my monitor wouldn?t come out of standby and basically wasn?t displaying anything. The computer was running, all the fans etc were spinning and I could hear it booting itself up, just nothing on the monitor. I though it might be my graphics card (Nvidia 8800 GTS) so I took it out and replaced it with another older card, not sure of the model of that card. After doing this it booted up fine, so I assumed that my Nvidia card was broken, but just to double check I put it in an old computer and it worked fine in there, leading me to believe that something on the windows updates I installed from the last week or so has caused a problem with my graphics card. I can?t install the drivers again for the graphics card as it only lets me when the graphics card is fitted inside the computer and obviously I cant get to my windows desktop with it fitted to install the drivers. I?ve read it could be a BIOS issue, is this possible? I?ve tried a system restore and reverted back to before the updates but then when I restart my computer it just installs them again, I?ve disabled the download of updates from my computer but they must still be on the computer even after the system restore and it must just install them when I restart from the restore, is there anyway to delete updates from my computer and not have them install?

I?m running Windows 7 Home 32 bit.
