Second monitor black screened

Q: Second monitor black screened

Hello,

As pointed out in the title my second monitor connected via VGA to my laptop doesn't work. Earlier it was working.

Second monitor (HP W2071d) is recognized by the laptop (lenovo idea y510p. Here's a link to my laptop (http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/lenovo/y-series/y510p/#tab-tech_specs)
1. VGA cable and monitor works fine (tried it with another laptop). So it's probably something to do with my computer.

VGA is firmly attached.

2. Drivers are all updated

3. Duplicating screens only shows black on second monitor.

4. Extending screens shows that I can move mouse out of primary monitor into other screen.

5. When I was playing Dragon Age, once in a while fuzzy pictures would show up on my second monitor (back when I had it on duplicate. Now its on extend).

Also, I just took a screenshot of something interesting. http://i.imgur.com/oFIfO7E.png
Originally the picture was just to show that the second monitor is detected. Notice that my second monitor is picked up in the picture. Unfortunately, the black screen is still there for me but at least my primary monitor recognizes the second monitor.

Please and thank you for any help given.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

my pc black screened randomly but the fans where still working so it was still on reset it and worked can some on etell me why?

A:my pc black screened randomly

Define black screen? Any errors or it was more like the monitor blacked out? If the monitor, shine a flashlight into the screen, stick your nose right up and look to see if you can see a very faint image of your Windows desktop. If you can, your monitor's backlighting is failing.

Try another monitor.

New Member here and more than happy to donate if I can consult when these issue arise and actually able to resolve.
My issue currently is my Gateway- Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit Intelcore, ATI Radeon HD5570 6GB DDR3 Computer is black screened. It has done this on occasion before now but has typically resolved itself after shut down and reboot. This time it has not and remains black screened. I have tried everything...shutting down manually over and over....switching monitors....disconnecting all power and cords/internet. I moved the unit to where my back up unit was located and after hooking it all back up with the other monitor etc...the PC booted back up and went to safe mode screen however I accidentally started it in normal mode rather than safe mode which I intended to and always do and since then it has been black screened and fan buzzing. When I say Black Screened I mean totally...no cursor top left and it has not been there upon any reboot. Please advise. Thank You.

This morning when I turned my computer on the desktop was running and I could hear the fans running, but my screen wasn't showing anything. I turned it off did a quick dust and it worked. I just got home and the same thing happened, but this time I did a full dust clean and it did not work. I've tried using different monitors that I know work and it doesn't work. The ports show no damage and I've also reset the cmos any it hasn't seemed to work. Currently I can still boot it up and see that the monitors turn on and then go to power saving mode (new cords didn't fix it either) my mouse doesn't light up on the bottom.If anyone could help me out I'd greatly appreciate it

Hey guys,

Was trying to do an update for a friend... forgetting that lenovo puts on onekey recovery when I tried to update his vista it restarted.. and now black screens after loading.

Now, I have tried a lot of stuff. I know microsoft has put out an update, but since I can not see the screen or even get into safemode (it hangs at crcdisk.sys...) Is there anyway to fix this without reformatting? I do not have his vista CD so this is kind of a problem..

Please help me figure out how to apply the update (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...XxtnfXixWUn2GSQbuIEq49RAM/kBPoMrhosg7ZBdXSQ==)

I was using my computer as usual and after I came back after eating, I saw a completely black screen. I turned my computer off and as it booted back up it blue screened, telling me there was a problem with memory management.
I turned it back off and fully depowered my motherboard, popped my ram in and out, just in case.
I turned it back on and nothing showed up on my monitor. My mouse and keyboard lit up and I got the regular system beeps. I plugged my HDMI cable into my motherboard with the same results. The cable works and the port on my monitor works as well.

Do you have another video card that you can try in the system?
If not, you may want to purchase one from a place that accepts returns (and gives you your money back) - in case you don't need it.

I have HP Desktop Tower Pavilion with windows 10, I had two HP S2031 monitors in dual mode, worked fine. One of them died, I got a good deal on a larger HP 27er monitor.  I hooked it up, they were both working fine ... it was using a default monitor
setting ... and then yesterday the computer downloaded some updates, and in doing so, it downloaded the driver for the HP 27er and installed.  The next thing that happens is the older HP S2031 starts to go dark ... like it is going into sleep mode, and
then it is totally black.  On reboot, it starts up with both monitors working, but within seconds of reboot the HP S2031 goes black again. The HP S2031's buttons do nothing, other than the power button, which turns it off and on, but that is it.  
I have done all troubleshooting, I did not even have them set up to sleep, all settings are at NEVER.  In coming here, I have done all the fixes I can find for similar  that are posted for similar issues, the Windows Key + W... nothing. 
The create new power plan ... nothing.  the device manger>display adapters>disable then enable ... nothing.  and lastly Start>Control Panel>System>Device Manager>display adapter>driver tap>update ... still nothing.  HOW
DO I GET THE HP S2031 MONITOR TO NOT BE IN SLEEP AND HAVE BLACK SCREEN.  I can not figure this out and am not finding any fix.

I had to switch monitors and video cards both when the old monitor broke, which was working perfectly, it was 1650 by 1080 max resolution. This new monitor is 1080p, wide screen. 1920 by 1080.

The old AMD card was x1650, the new video card is Gt610.

This new Westnghouse Tv - monitor combo, an LD2240 has terrible text colors. Instead of all black it just randomly throws up colored text. If I zoom the screen the text reverts to all black, If I zoom out the screen, the text goes to a mix of black, red, blue letters. If I do a full zoom out, black text looks like a lit up Christmas tree of colors.

I am using an HDMI cable and Nvidia 368 driver.

Here is a picture taken with a cell phone. If I shared a screen shot, you will see normal colors.

Will getting an DVI to HDMI adapter help? The monitor TV only has VGA and HDMI, no DVI input.

If I change from 1080p to 1080i, the text color issue is solved, but the text is not as sharp.

A:LED monitor displays black text as mix of red, black, blue

You're sure that the monitor supports 1080p not 1080i? I ask because some TV's only support up to 1080i.

Based on what you've said and are showing us, I think this might be the case. Judging from that picture, that TV does not like 1080p.

Edit:

Although I just checked the model out online and the literature all says 1080p. Is there a setting on the TV that allows you to switch between 1080i and 1080p? Or does it do it automatically?

Edit again:

I just went through the instruction book, and nowhere does it say 1080p. Something you could try is going into the PC settings and adjusting the clock and the phase controls. It may help, or it may only apply to the TV's VGA connector, I don't know.

Hi, I have windows home 7, home built pc with Asus motherboard. Don't ask me further spec details cuz I have no idea about most of the specs (an ex built it and can't get in control panel due to monitor issue). I just know that it's supposed to be kick-*** with a 5.8 windows score.

The PC boots fine, gives you the option to start windows normally or leave it do its' thing... but either way I try, it makes no difference to monitor.
When it boots, the monitor shows all the usual details, the bios pic, starting... and as soon as it reaches desktop point (I think), it goes black even though monitor is still powered and no errors about no signal. If I turn monitor off and on, it will quickly show me the desktop then it goes black again.

I'd appreciate any help or insight.

Hi, first thing I would try is to connect the PC to another monitor that is known to be in good working order. If the same problem occurs then we will know it is a problem with the PC, if it functions normally you will know it is a problem with your monitor.

I need some help. I have acomputer monitor that is roughly 10 years old. THe monitor last night decided to suddenly turn off and the power button started blinking. I unplugged the power to the monitor and let it sit overnight. This morning I went and plugged the power back into the monitor and pressed the power button on it. When I pressed the power button the button started blinking again. I have never had a monitor die like this and I would like to know why it died and if it can be fixed. Some more info is that i had only been on the computer for less than 2 hours. I have not spilled anything on the computer, the vent is completely uncovered, and the computer is in good working conditions according to the mannual. I need to know asap please. The tower still works perfectly fine it is only the monitor.
 

A:Monitor is black and the power button on the monitor is blinking

If you could try the monitor on another PC, that would confirm the monitor is faulty. In any case if the monitor is bad and considering its age, it would be best to just replace it. It would not be worth fixing.

I have a dual monitor set up through HDMI. My laptop works just fine but the second monitor went black during a gaming session and hasn't worked since. I have restarted, verified its on HDMI setting, updated drivers, checked refresh rates.

The Second monitor is still connected. I can move things there (cant see it) because it is black. When I right click and click screen resolution I can see the screen pop up.

I think the color scheme may have changed during the gaming session and that might be the culprit. It was an old game - 2009

I have been running a dual monitor setup for several years without issue. I was using a 28" Hanns G 16:10 1920x1200 via HDMI & an ASUS 27" via DVI. They were connected to a Zotac GTX 570 and then later to a Gigabyte GTX 770 4GB graphics card.

About a month ago I substituted a 30 Inch Monoprice 16:10 2560x 1600 monitor connected via DVI for the Asus monitor (both MP & HG still connected to GTX 770). In the last two days, the Monoprice monitor has gone black twice. When this happens, all programs that were visible on the now black monitor combine with the programs on the visible monitor. When I open up the control panel, it only lists the Hanns G (still visible) monitor as detected and the Monoprice (black) monitor has to be re-detected. After clicking on "Detect" the monitor returns to normal. This happened once while gaming (Left 4 Dead 2) and once when I wasn't gaming...can't remember exactly what programs were open at that time.

I updated my graphics driver between the time it first happened and the second time it happened. I also used device manager to see if there was an available monitor driver update available, but windows claims that the most current driver is installed and that the graphics card and both monitors are working properly.

I would really appreciate any assistance that can be offered. The 30 inch monitor wasn't cheap and I am hoping that the monitor is not the issue. I have not yet done any trial and error measures such as ... Read more

It almost always comes when I am surfing the internet, especially--but not particularly--when I'm accessing video sites such as Hulu or MSN Video, although I don't even need to be playing something in such sites--if the window's even up, it will likely give a blue screen somewhere in the next hour. Lately, though, just running a browser can cause it to blues creen.

My blue screen says at the top something to the effect of: driver-not-less-or-equal; I've never been fast enough to catch the specific numbers, but I can try if they're needed.

I've tested this in the latest versions of: IE, FF, Opera, Flock, and Safari and all equally cause a blue screen crash.

I have an Acer E380 8 month old system with:
Vista SP1
AM2 Socket MB (I believe, and don't know the exact model)
Athlon 64 X2 4400+ @ 2.31 GHz
NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 (I now just installed a NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT and it did not remedy anything)
Realtek High Definition audio
2GB DDR2 RAM
320 GB Western Digital HD
Came with 250W PSU (I put in a 750W PSU to try some upgrades with the new graphics card, but somehow that combination gave more blue screens so I took both of them out)
I have about 6 USBs hooked up drawing various amounts of power and I use a Wacom tablet as my main mouse/input, but the problem started way before that...so don't know if that means anything.

A:I'm getting blue-screened to death

Hi dgal. . .

Welcome... to your first thread in the TSF Vista Support Forum.

I see that you have been a member since last November, but this is your first thread and post. Sorry it had to be under a BSOD watch. Let's see if we can locate the cause.

I need some items and I have a few things for you as well. There is a zip file attached to this post containing a batch file named minidump-msinfo32.bat. Please download it and extract it to your desktop. Right-click on the desktop batch file icon and select Run as Administrator. The black "DOS" command screen will appear and scroll followed by the smaller Vista screen while msinfo32 runs. Give it a few minutes, then go to your documents folder where there should be a new folder named TSF_08-21-08 containing the dump files (with names similar to Mini082008-01.dmp), a text file and the msinfo32 NFO file. Zip the entire folder up and attach to your next post.

In the interim, please check WERCON - Windows Problem Reports and Solutions as it usually does contain information on the system crashes that may prove to be helpful.
START | type wercon.exe into the start search box | right-click on wercon.exe under programs above | run as admin | view Problems to Check & Problem History.

Also check the Device Manager for any red/yellow flags.
START | type dev man into the start search box | right-click on Device Manager up top under programs | run as admin

Regards. . .

Laptop is a nearly new Fujitsu 1510D, running XP Pro, SP2. It has been doing service as a desktop replacement (traveling for months), and thus is on most of the day, I close the lid only at night, this puts it into hibernation.

I wasn't doing anything in particular - was just composing an email in Thunderbird - when the screen went completely, utterly white from top to bottom. No keystrokes changed this, but on reboot it seems to be working fine.

I did some research but none of the problems were definitely the cause of this. The laptop has shown absolutely no indications of either overheating (the fan is on though) or some other display problem. It's been running for some hours since the lid was opened this morning. Therefore, I'm not sure if this is a hardware or software problem.

Anybody experienced this before? From my research, it seems that white-screening is specifically a laptop issue...

Oh, and I do have AV software and spyware protection - running a full AVG test, so far nothing (not that I expect this is a virus but it's always good to check).

Thanks for any help!

About 2 months ago I bought a Hp G70-460US Laptop that I've been running Vista Home Premium on and it was working perfectly until earlier today when I started to get random blue screens of death. At first I thought it was just a random crash from running too many programs, but it started to blue screen ever more frequently. Earlier I restored it back to 2 weeks prior but I was unable to run programs efficiently and it still blue screened, so I backed-up all that was important onto an Ipod and did a complete system restore to the factory settings, which took about an hour, and at which point it blue screened at startup before even getting to the administrator log-in screen. I've now attempted to boot it into safe mode, however it no longer even recognized that windows is even installed and asks for it to be, and when booted regularly, it just shows a black screen. I'm fairly certain it may be a driver issue, however seeing as I can no longer boot the computer to get the blue screen, it's difficult to check what the problem actually is now. I've never had this problem before and I'm not much of a computer wiz, so I'm not sure what I should be doing to fix it. Does anyone have prior knowledge or possibly some insight on how to fix this problem? It would be greatly appreciated. I haven't given much information other than the problem itself, so if some is needed, just let me know. Also I'm new to this forum, so if this thread is in the wrong place, I apologize.

A:Vista Blue Screened

Hello Werty789,
Welcome to Vista Forums!

I think that there was a little glitch that turned big (sounds weird i know).
But since you backed up all of your files thats super. I would suggest you do a clean installation of your version of vista. This way, you can have a fresh start and hopefully your BSOD will be gone. Also, make sure you allow windows to update itself after installation so it downloads and installs all the proper updates.

Let us know how it goes,
Ben

Please help! I am new to this forum. I tried to follow a tread on this but it got so confussing. Does someone have a step by step reply? Issue is Blue screen "A driver has overrun a stack-based buffer". Its on my teen son's PC (need I say more). System has been down for months got tierd of working on it till now. The begining:
1) System starts and said it had two spywares running at same time. After 4 mins the system would freeze, not giveing much time to do anything
2) I started in safe mode and removed my Nortons since I could not this "other" spyware. After a reboot windows said it removed a few malice files. Forgot the the files for this "other" spyware" but it had a tool bar on IE and ended with (4.1?)
3) System worked fine. However as I tried to install a new antivirus I found that neither of my CD/ DVD drives would work (device manger, would not let me update driver). I even moved the drives to the other IDE controller but got the same thing. After two days I found someone who gave me step by step insrtuctions to remove two reg files. Got the drives to work.
4) Now I have this blue screen message. I have removed one by one each hardware item and I still get the problem.

Please help me! John

For a while now I have a small problem with my desktop and it is starting to annoy me. The following things happen:
-When I start my computer and monitor then the monitor works for about 10 seconds before it turns black. Usually this is just after logging in, but if I don't log in fast it turns black at the login screen. It stays black for a minute and then everything is back to normal.
-Sometimes the monitor thinks it has no video imput in this minute and I have to restart the monitor or computer.
-When my computer has been on a while and I decide its time for a little break I turn off my monitor. When I turn it back on again after 30 minutes the same thing happens.

Does anyone know what the problem might be? It feels like a waste to have a computer that can start up in under 10 seconds and then have to wait for a minute before the monitor works properly.

Hi all.

So, I just got a spiffy new monitor from Woot.com (a debranded HP w2338h). Gorgeous, works great when it's all by its lonesome. Not even a dead pixel!

However, when I try to hook it up at the same time as my old HP vs17 (which also works great by itself), it goes black, says "no input signal," and goes to sleep. I'm using a Radeon 4670 HD. Brand new drivers, Hydravision installed. Windows 7 64-bit.

Catalyst detects both the monitors, offering an extended desktop, and when I move my mouse off the side of the vs17, it disappears and takes time to return, indicating that the computer thinks the screen is still on and is moving the mouse all over this expanse of screen real estate.

Also, when I boot up, both monitors show the boot-up screen just fine, up through the Windows logo load.

Tried switching the cables on the video card, no luck.

Any ideas?

No it will not mess up your Pro version . . the repair will not run.

Unmountable boot volume will usually indicate a hard drive failure . . Does BIOS redognize the drive?

Hey guys I need some help, I just brought my computer to the college dorms, set it up, and was working fine for around 4 hours. Then I got a blue screen while chatting and it said something about checking my hardware. When I restarted, it says "error loading OS".

I restarted once more pressing "delete" and checked the "Standard CMOS Features" and it doesn't show my primary hard drive, "primary ide master : none" but it shows my 2nd slave drive.

Hi,

I was just using my PC when it disconnected from the internet. Other devices were still connected so I figured the issue must be with my PC, closed my programs and then tried to restart my PC.

This is when it blue screened with a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE error. Once the blue screen reached 100% it hung for a good five minutes before I decided to try a hard reset and now it's stuck on the loading wheel and won't boot up. I'm scared to try another restart but I'm not sure where to go from here.

Any help is much appreciated

You'll have to try another restart as there is nothing that we can help you with without the memory dump + system files.

Hi there,my name is Marius and I will assist you with your malware related problems.Before we move on, please read the following points carefully. First, read my instructions completely.
