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.)

Hi, I am having a mojor headache with a Toshiba Satellite Pro A120. The screen has started switching to blackout at random times and is happening more and more. It doesn't matter whether W
Jayindows has loaded or if I enter the bios,or boot from CD,or leave it sat waiting for me to select a boot device. It more often than not goes black but you can still see what should be on the screen, it's just not lit at all to see clearly. The laptop itself is still working fine as it works on an external monitor and makes system beeps, cd spins up etc.
Have tried the following:
Adjusting various settings in the graphics properties and within the bios but makes no difference.
It also switches back on if I press FN + F5 to swap monitors but goes off again after a few seconds.
It's not overheating as it's been stood all night and still happens sometime during boot when stone cold.
I've tried booting with / without the battery - no difference.
I've tried booting without the HDD - no difference.
I've tried removing the battery, pressing power for 60 seconds, then add battery, power and boot up again - no difference.
I would have sworn it was the inverter but it does the same thing with an inverter I know works! don't think it can be graphics as it works on an external monitor and doesn't go off.
I'm out of ideas and seeking a genius to sort this for me please!!!

A:Satellite Pro A120 - Black Screen - Fine on External Monitor - LCD fine

Apologies, the bit that says " *It doesn't matter whether W*
*Jayindows has loaded*"

Should actuall read: " *It doesn't matter whether Windows has loaded*"

My laptop keyboard is knacked too!

Briefly, I've been using my monitor instead of the laptop screen for over a year now. Everything works fine. Suddenly yesterday the monitor went black! It's actually still functioning on some level but doesn't keep the display. I was doing something on the internet, possibly saving a password in RoboForm, maybe just wandering. There are no error codes or indicators.

When I reboot, having previously changed the setting to dual - laptop & monitor, it briefly flashes the Vaio splash screen, then black, then briefly flashes the Windows splash screen. Then black. The laptop screen is fine. I've tried both 'Single Display - Monitor' and 'dual display' - Laptop as Primary; 'dual display' - Monitor as Primary, and in none does the monitor work - laptop screen always works.

If I unplug the VGA output from the laptop, then plug it back in, the monitor briefly (maybe 1-2 seconds) shows the desktop images perfectly! Then black! It seems that everything is actually working just not properly! It's making me crazy. I did try downloading the most current graphics driver from Intel...nothing. The monitor continues to show a green light (indicating that it is receiving a signal). The audio (plugged from the monitor into the front of the laptop by a separate plug) continues to play thru the monitor.

To Recap: Display on 'Monitor only' has worked just fine for a year. Now it won't show any image... Read more

I have tried turning off hidden modes (works in 2000 Pro) and changing the monitor type to standard LCD 1280 by 1024. In the display information window it show 1280 by 1024 but it is displaying 640 by 480.

Anyone have a work around this feature of XP Pro? Oh, yes I have tried this on XP Home and it works up to 1024 by 768. Which is better then I get with XP Pro.

I have an Emachine T-5026 with an Intel 915GAG board. Ubuntu 7.10 is installed. I currently have a SOYO 24" LCD monitor in the system, (1920 X 1200 native resoution).
Ubuntu will not pick this monitor up at more than 640 X 480 resolution. I couldn't find a video driver for the Linux at Intel's support page. What now?

The previous monitor was a Westinghouse 22" at 1680 X 1050 resolution. Ubuntu picked this up at a maximum of 1280 X 1024.

The Intel XP video drivers for this chipset will provide all native resolutions.

Try starting your computer up in safe mode. and check the resolution setting of the graphics. If it is set too high for your old old monitor as you put it, lower the resolution. Try 800X600. Also try setting your color quality to a lower setting.

A:Plug & Play monitor

Right-click on your desktop and chose "Properties". That will bring you to the "Display" option in "Control Panel". Click on "Settings", and then on the "Advanced" button near the bottom.

Next, click on the "Change" button near the top of the new window and then look for and select "Plug and Play Monitor". Windoze should be able to find and load the standard Plug and Play monitor drivers for you.

Hi, I recent came across another monitor, and I'm trying to use it as a dual display monitor (the kind where you can drag things across both monitors, etc). My graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce GT 240 and it has a VGA port and DVI port. I bought a DVI to AGP plug (DVI male, AGP female) since the other monitor has a AGP male plug. However, when I plug it in it isn't detected, nor is it detected when I plug it into the motherboard AGP port. Both monitors work when I use them with the AGP port on my graphics card. Also, in device manager, if they are both plugged in, they both show up.

Any suggestions?

A:Extra Monitor not being detected, may have something to do with AGP/DVI plug

I think you mean D-Sub, not AGP. AGP is a type of graphics card slot on the motherboard. On the chance that the adapter is bad, try another brand. They are relatively inexpensive.

I have a PIII 700 motherboard with an on-board SIS 630 graphics card.

I updated the drivers for the graphics card recently, and it works just fine, with one exception - when the computer boots up, it doesn not load the driver for the plug and play monitor!

If I check the display properties (via Control Panel), it seems that the monitor cannot be recognised, and consequently the power scheme settings for the monitor do not work and have to be reset.

If I run the 'Add new hardware' applet, it finds the 'Plug and Play Monitor' immediately, and the system returns to normal!

I have been to the monitor manufacturer site (Logix) and can't find any specific drivers for the monitor. That doesn't seem to be the issue. I assume that it's probably tied up with the order in which things are being loaded, but I can't work out how to alter this?

This one has me stumped. Hope someone can help.

The monitor/speakers I bought is the 17 inch LCD monitor by Westinghouse
When I go to the sound and audio devices part of the control pannel, it sais "No Audio Device"
When I go to the hardware part it says that everything is working properly.
I am running windows XP Home Edition
I was thinking my computer is confused and only thinks it is a monitor, but the speaker part has its own seperate plug (the little green type)

I don't know what else to say about it so I guess we can just start with that.

I cannot help but think this is a Samsung driver issue. I have a dual LG display but had to install the driver for each for Windows to permit their respective resolutions. Another, less likely source could be ATi's CCC if you are running same.

Hello genius folk! Help needed please. My PC is on WinXP SP3. My monitor went kerplunk the other day so just bought a used one that I saw working perfectly before I bought it (it's a 17" Relisys). I hooked it up to my PC and loaded through to my desktop fine, except the resolution wasn't great and a white bar stayed in the middle of the screen which read OUT OF RANGE. I looked into this and did the properties>settings>monitor>change values thing and changed the resolution down a step (can't remember what resolution, sorry). I had to do the obligatory restart for values to take effect and it loads through the XP scroll page, then goes black and the same white bar with OUT OF RANGE comes up again and the whole screen is now black - I can't get out of it. Have I messed up my machine? I'm not very techy, sorry. Any clues/help on this would be most awesome. Many thanks in advance. Simon

I recently connected a Gateway VX1130 Diamondtron 22-inch CRT monitor to my IBM computer running Windows XP. The colors on the monitor are way off, even after trying to adjust them using the controls on the monitor itself. There's nothing wrong with the monitor; I got it from my uncle and colors showed up beautifully when he had it on his computer.

I thought downloading the monitor's driver might solve the problem, but every time I try to install it, I get a screen that says something along the lines of it won't install because the computer is using the generic Plug and Play driver instead. How can I get it to recognize the monitor's actual driver instead of the Plug and Play? And more importantly, if I am able to get the official driver to work, will the colors show up more accurately, or would I just be wasting my time?

Hi.... You guys helped me so much with another problem, (birthday present for son)...hoping you can help again. Temporarily, my mom has hooked up her computer in our house, but didn't have a monitor, so used our flat panel from our Dimension 2400. We ended up using HERS (not a flat panel, but a newer dell) and tonight I switched them back. Now our my son's Dell flat panel, which is supposed to be a plug and play PLANAR, will not register. The system is using the default VGA and all the text is too big, doesn't give any other display options but 16 bit. I tried turning the computer off for about a half hour and restarting, then unplugging the monitor, turning the pc on, and plugging the monitor in after the pc was started, hoping to see the "new hardware found" msg, but nothing. Why won't it detect the right settings automatically? (I recently also reloaded the entire system from the original boot cd again, since it was really congested). Help anyone?

Hello all,

I have been having a problem with my monitor setup for ages and am now at the end of my tether...so need some help!

I have a Digimate L-1931W monitor, in plain speak, a 19" Widescreen TFT LCD monitor. The screen had been flickering (losing channels) for a while and I have diagnosed the cable as being the culpret (A VGA D-Sub, 15 pin cable). Change the cable you say...which I have done 3 times. Herein lays the problem.

This is where I show my staggering ignorance. The original cable seems to allow my windows XP machine to locate and install an appropriate driver for the monitor, and my Nvidia adapter has the monitor listed as a "M19W". Using any other VGA cable means that the monitor is listed as a "CRT" monitor in my nvidia control panel, and is impossible to change. Being CRT, it gives me no option to have the relevant widescreen resolution (in this case 1440 x 900), and also annoyingly flickers on and off as if it has a CRT gun! (when changing resolution).

Does anybody have any idea why changing a VGA cable would disable the plug and play driver installation from my monitor? Many thanks for any help.

I have a Viewsonic Optiquest Q7b-3 monitor. For the longest time, it was working just fine on me... until just the other day. Now, whenever I plug it in, it won't turn on. If I hook up the monitor to a PC or a Laptop, the little light under the power button will flash about three times, stop, and nothing will show up on the monitor.

About half a year ago, it did something similar to this, but I was able to fix it by replacing a domed capacitor. It worked perfectly... Up until now, of course. I opened up the monitor, and after looking at all the capacitors, none of them seem bad or even domed this time.

Here's the thing though; while I have it opened up and it's plugged into the wall, I can hear a faint buzzing noise. The faint noise sounds sorta like "Wee-ooh wee-ooh wee-ooh wee-ooh", and will continue until I unplug it.

Anyone have any idea's? It is now trashcan-filler, or do you think it is still repairable?

Any replies will be appreciated. Thanks in advance~

DVI Monitor cable goes to what socket on the cards? Don't want to try experimenting, I'm quite unlucky at that, Any clues will be appreciated.

A:sli video, two 7800gtx's 4 places to plug monitor

since nobody else has answered this, I will chime in here...

With standard single video cards with dual monitor capabilty, it never mattered which output connector you used (the vid card would sense which one was plugged in)... I can only assume that it wouldn't matter in your case either. In SLI mode, the 2 cards function as 1 single card.

I can almost assure you that if it did not state in your video card or motherboard manual which connector to plug the monitor into, then it doesn't matter. when you plug it into any "socket" it will be recognized and configured from there. In any case it won't do any harm to plug it into a different output

But it is a plug n play monitor so I dunno. Please help. Thanks

A:Monitor is fine on startup (DOS) but dies in Win

What is most likely happening is windows is requesting a resolution or a refresh rate that the monitor does not support so the monitor instead of frying, shuts down. You need to change the resolution in safe mode to fix it. To get to safe mode, in win98 hold down the control key on bootup until you get the menu to choose safe mode, if win95 then repeatedly press the f8 key until you get the menu.

I have a dual screen setup of a Sony Bravia and a standard LCD monitor. The television is connected to a Raedon R9 via hdmi and the monitor is connected to my ASUS P8Z77-V vga port. I have updated both drivers to the most up to date, the monitor is using IntelHD4000. I use Chrome which is also up to date, the same issue happens on firefox which is up to date but not Edge (that's convenient?).

Okay so as an example I try to load this page: http://www.icy-veins.com/heroes/kharazim-build-guide
and when I do it with the browser on my monitor it doesn't load properly but on my TV it loads fine. I can even load it wrongly on monitor drag it over to TV and reload and it sorts itself. The website has skills or characters that you can hover over and it will display descriptions and extra information. When loaded on the monitor these are displayed very poorly almost unreadable, with transparent background, text having lots of line breaks so it isn't view-able in the field of view of the monitor and if you scroll you no longer have the mouse hovered over the correct place.
Is there anything I can do to fix this or is it as I fear that it is loading on each display using the corresponding driver and I just need to wait until Intel fix the issue in their driver

Check your refresh rate. Also, you should have some driver associated with the monitor or it wouldnt work. Go to your device manager and check to see if you have a exclamation point listed (!). This means the device is not working properly. If you do then simply update the driver.

Recently I have put together a new computer (ordered parts from newegg woot) but after putting everything together and turning it on for the first time it gave out a loud long continuous beep with no display to the monitor. While troubleshooting I found out that my ******* forgot to plug in the PCI-E power to my graphics card. So round two I turned on my computer again and finally no long beep at all but still no display to the monitor.

The problem is solved and the monitor works fine if I let the CPU go to sleep and then wake it up. I have tried twitching monitors and always the VGA flickers. Both monitors are Dell.

A:Second monitor flickers, but works fine after sleep

it sounds to me like there could be a internal hardware glitch of some sort causing the flickering. however; there is one thing short of trashing the monitor that you can try first; try seeing if you can adjust the resolution for the monitor in windows settings. Sometimes adjusting the refresh rate and or changing the resolution can fix the issue. Give that a shot and see if it does anything for ya to resolve the issue. If not report back and we can try and go from there.

My HP Pavillion XT 936 gave me an error messge, that said my CPU fan was not working, and that it was going to shut off in 5 seconds to stop it from overheating...and it did shut right off.

I took it to my techno buddy, who sat it on his desk...and of course, it worked fine...I took it home, and it gave me the same error message and I looked inside...fan was off.

Dumbass me, wasnt thinking it had a thermostatic switch, and I Replaced the fan...plugged it in WITHOUT my monitor...and of course, NEW fan works perfect...runs with no problem, (just like the old one duh).

So. HEREIN lies the problem, The Second I plug my monitor in, I get the old error message and it shuts off in 5 seconds. Why does my computer hate my monitor?? HOW DO I FIX THIS???

Hi - Using IBM T42 with External Monitor. When booting Win XP Home SP3, both monitors work, then laptop monitor goes blank. External monitor works fine. I have tried everything I can think of - resetting displays, changing ATI Radeon mobility 7500 driver, disconnecting external monitor, Function key combinations, booting in safe mode. Nothing works. But when the laptop boot starts, the laptop monitor works for a few minutes then shuts down. Seems like a switch is not working properly.
Any ideas as to how to solve this problem. And the laptop monitor was working fine until a few days ago, the last time I used it alone, i.e., separate from the external monitor.

Many thanks in advance.

A:Laptop Monitor Not Working External Fine

Being that the ibm t42thinkpad is an older model its very possible that the whole screen will need replaced as the ribbon cable, inverters, or backlights might have gone bad.replacing the whole screen might be easier to do than trying to find the individual parts needed.
