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 want to buy HP 22vx IPS Monitor. I would like to know if it has a matte screen or glossy screen.  This is a very important deciding factor. Here is a example of matte and gloss screen.  Monitor on left has glossy screen and monitor on right has matte screen. Can you confirm whether HP 22vx IPS Monitor has a matte or glossy screen?

Hello everyone. Using the same settings and programs as in my 8.1 installation. Nothing funny, or game-related running in the background (also tried disabling everything possible). The problem is that the monitor will not turn off, either from the Power/Display power-off options (nothing happens after set time passes), or with a program like ScreenOff and Monitor Off.

Using one of these apps, will start turning the monitor off, but it will turn itself back on automatically almost immediately. Something is interfering but I cannot figure out what. No security software installed (using Defender, tried disabling it). The only way this works as intended, is in Safe Mode.

Hello Everyone;

I am recently upgrading a dell dimension 4100 and i am having extreme problems with it. At first it was running perfectly normal with 128mb of ram and a 20 GB hard-drive running windows M.E. I bought the right sticks of ram from a pc store following the exact specifications from the 4100 book(256MB of RAM). i slapped the stick of ram in the slot and also a new harddrive in. i went to boot up my computer and there was 3 consecutive beeps and no display on my monitor. i then replaced evreything originally how it was with the original 128mb stick of ram and the original hard-drive and it did the same thing. I thought the stick of ram might not have match the motherboard requirements so I went back to the store and purchased a 256MB PC133 and dilagently placed it in the computer with the original hard drive. STILL THE SAME RESPONSE! I called a comp tech and he specifically told me 3 consec beeps it has to be the video card...so i went back to the store purchased the same vid card..slapped it in and bam the SAME RESPONSE! I also checked all the cords and looked for damage throughout the motherboard but seems to look ok! I am so frustraded NOW! Do you think its the motherboard??? or what can it be?? I purchased the same motherboard its coming in sometime this week !! is it possible?? PLEASE HELP ME I FEEL LIKE SMASHING THIS THING!!!!

A:My monitor has no display when i turn my pc on!

Extension Of My Previous Message!!

My monitor works on my gf laptop, so i know for a fact its not the monitor!

Also the diagnostics lights on the back are ABCD Which AB is-Yellow and CD are-Green. the harddrive light turns on green but then a few seconds later it turns off.the main power light stays green.....the fans all work normally....I just get those 3 consecutive beeps ...the dell suport said with the colors in order like how they are means the ram doesnt meet the requirements of the motherboard..like i said earlier purchased the specific ram again same lights occur...a comp tech also said the diagnostic lights in the order it displays means its the vid card.. another said its a fried motherboard.... but if those diagnostics lights turn on the motherboard should be working fine?? shouldnt it??

Hey everyone. I upgraded my Windows 8.1 computer to 10 over a month ago. Although I like Windows 10 a lot, there is a problem I've been having with the monitor not turning off automatically.
The display is set to turn off after 5 minutes of inactivity, but it never does. No matter how long I set the wait time. I set up a hot key to automatically turn the monitor off. It worked in 8.1 but in Windows 10 the monitor turns off for a half second and then turns right back on.
I did not change any hardware settings when I went from 8.1 to 10. I've tried unplugging various things connected via USB but nothing so far has solved this problem.
The monitor I have is the Dell E2414Hx 24-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor.
Any help would be appreciated guys.
Edit: I wasn't sure whether to put this in the external hardware forum or here, but since the problem's only occured since the upgrade I posted it here.

Just a thought. If you cannot find anything better, maybe a cheap surge protector, with the on off switch. You can put it right by the computer and then you can turn it on or off.
Maybe, not the best idea, but a great last resort. Good luck.

My PC/Monitor was working before but I forgot to connect my hard drive to my power supply. So after I connected the power cord from my hard drive to my power supply, I turned on my Computer and my Monitor. Unfortunately, when I turned both on, my Monitor said "No Signal" on both HDMI 1 and 2. I don't know if I accidentally damaged a part or knocked something out. I just need to know what parts affect video/visual and potentially how to fix the problem.

A:PC can turn on but my BIOS menu wont display on my monitor

Generally it's anything video related, like a graphics card or the motherboard's onboard video.

The first rule is generally to do a bare boot.

Pull out all but one stick of RAM and any other add-in cards you may have. MAKE SURE THAT THE ONE STICK OF RAM YOU LEAVE IN NEED TO BE IN THE CORRECT DIMM SLOT FOR ONE STICK. They are usually number A1 A2, etc. Check your motherboard manual for your correct configuration.

It would also help greatly if you can post a full list of your computer's SPECIFIC specs.

Pull out the motherboard CMOS battery and unplug from wall power, if you haven't done so already. Push the power button and hold it down for about 45 seconds.

Reinsert the CMOS battery and the wall power plug. Try to boot...any picture?

I've set Turn off the display setting in my power plan to 15 minutes and my monitor does turn off after that period (sometimes it doesn't!), but then, sometimes, it turns ON by itself after few minutes.

I've been Google-ing these days trying to find some solution and I came across suggestions which recommends that Allow this device to wake the computer option, located in the Power management tab, in the Properties window of the network adapter, in the Device manager, should be disabled. Also, there were suggestions that Wake on Magic packet property in the Advanced tab should be disabled, too. Unfortunately, all that did not work in my case.

Does somebody know what can cause this problem? Has anyone ever encountered such phenomena?

Thanks in advance.

A:Monitor turn on by itself after "Turn off the display" starts

Hello alokin87 & welcome to Sevenforums,

Sometimes the computer Wake from standby because of a program's updating itself. Sometimes it does wake, sometimes it does not!

Therefore it could be the Windows Media center as explained in this Hotfix from MS. You could give a try:


Look at post #1:

Running Windows Vista Ultimate.

Display turns off after about fifteen minutes regardless of whether I am actively using the computer or not. The only way to turn the display back on is to close and then open the lid. This disconnets me from AOL, so I have to sign back on again, and if I was emailing, I might lose my current email.

Under Power Options, I have 'Turn off the display' set to Never for both On Battery and Plugged in. Under 'Put the computer to sleep' I have both On battery and Plugged in set to never. Nonetheless, the display still shuts off while I am working.

What do I need to do to prevent the display from turning off at odd intervals?

Hello Folks,

I'm not sure if my issue is with hardware (possibly MB?) or graphics card, so please forgive me if I've posted in the wrong section. The first problem I was having was random blue screens of death that displayed graphic card driver issues. I was able to remedy that by updating my graphic drivers and have not had an issue since.

However, ever since then I have been running into another hardware or graphics-related issue that is random and completely stumping me. What is happening is, I will be on my computer, leave and turn my monitor off, and (randomly) when I come back to use my computer again, when I turn on the monitor there is no signal and a black screen (e.g. when I turn my monitor on my desktop will pop up and the light on my monitor will turn blue, when it doesn't turn on there will be a black screen and the light on the monitor stays yellow as if it is idle). I have tried swapping out the monitor to see if that was the issue and the same problem persists, so it does not appear to be my monitor or VGA cables.

The only way I can temporarily fix this issue is to reboot/restart my computer and viola! The monitor works again and I can see everything. This issue is very random. Sometimes I can go weeks without an incident, other times this is happening a couple times a week. I honestly don't know if it's my motherboard or video card or what. My PC isn't overheating, I'm not overclocking, and all of my drivers are updated.

Hello. I run Windows Xp service pack 2 currently. I also regularly update and scan my computer with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and SuperAntiSpyware. The only thing that SuperAntiSpyware may find are Adware.Tracking Cookies. Other than that nothing else turns up. Since removing the Vundo, I have not been able to turn on my firewall. Windows Security Alerts tells me at start up that the firewall is turned off. When I go to recommendations and then enable now, Windows says it is unable to turn it on and that I should turn it on from the control panel. When attempting to turn it on from the control panel, it is is unchangeable. An attachment shows how the firewall control panel appears. After clicking out of that alert, Windows Security Alerts then says that Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition is turned off. I check Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition and it appears to be running fine. It may be working since a few times since the Vundo it has caught some incoming threats to the computer. I am wondering what steps I should take to turn on the firewall and how to check if Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition is working okay or not. Thank you.

My Dell Insipron 6400 laptop will not support multiple monitors. I think I may not have a key driver installed. Help!!

I have attached two separate images, screen shot of my device manager and display properties and a screen shot of the same image on my mothers PC. (which is also a Dell Inspiron 6400)

On my PC, In my device manager I can not view the display adapters (there must be something installed and I do not have visiblilty?? correct??)

Also, on my display properties I do not even have the option for Multiple monitor support. (these are the same PC's)

I inserted my Drivers and Utilities CD from Dell, but I did not see any driver on there that was applicable to a display adapter.

Am I on the right track???

Hello folks,

I seem to be having multiple problems all at the same time (all of which may or may not be related) but let me start from the beginning.

This all started when I tried to connect my Inspiron 1720 laptop to our television. For some reason my laptop froze, the image on both my computer and TV had white lines across it, and so I turned off my system since it was locked up.

I restarted and began having display problems - first windows were not opening in the desktop area. They would open in the system tray, but were "unreachable" by the mouse. I played with display settings and got the screen to fit...but now seem to have 2 primary problems:


Whenever I play games, view pictures, or Windows Media Player, I see strange "plaid boxes." However, the desktop is fine and everything else appears to work fine. I contacted NVIDIA and I have installed different driver versions, as well as the OEM (Dell's) driver's - all did not work - I still saw the distorted images when playing games, viewing pictures, and videos.

I have also completed System Restore's to points prior to when I was having the problem - unfortunately that did not work.

Here are screenshots of what I am seeing:

A:Vista Display Problem (display driver and/or multiple-monitor related)

The first set of pictures that you put up look like classics examples of bad video RAM. In a desktop PC I would tell you to swap out the video card with a differnt one to verify that is the issue since in a few cases bad drivers can cause the issue but it's highly unlikely. Professional service by a local non big box computer shop is your best bet at this point.

Tonight I was playing a good old game. I minimized to my desktop while the game was running and pulled open Windows calculator, did some calculator stuff, but then the computer goes into a blue error screen and then restarts. A few moments later, the display on my monitor suddenly turns off as if it were put to sleep. And even if I turn it off cold and restart the computer, nothing appears on the display at all, not even a BIOS logo screen. So weird.

I have a Benq FP7IE+ monitor that has suddenly stopped working. Here's the breakdown:

-when you turn the monitor on when hooked to a computer it will sometimes show the display for a brief moment (ie. showed HP booting screen at startup) and than stops displaying, but the blue light stays on the unit as if it is receiving a display. Other times it will display nothing at all, but the blue light stays on.

-with the blue light on if you attempt to press any of the menu buttons on the monitor itself again nothing is displayed.

-I don't believe that it's a refresh rate or driver issue even though I reinstalled the driver and hooked the monitor to PC running in safe mode and still no display (even though the blue light stays on).

-not the VGA cable, tried another, same result.

-hooked monitor to PC with the identical monitor working on it, same result, no display.

-if you unplug the power cord from the monitor and then plug back in and power back on it will always show the "Benq - Energy Star Qualified Monitor" screen as bright as ever, but then nothing is display even though blue light stays on.

-tried monitor on 3 different computers, no display on any of them.

Any idea what might be causing this? I apologize for being so long winded, but I wanted to include as many details as possible.

I recently got a monitor from one of my friends saying that it was broken. Its a Dell 19in LCD. I have my main monitor a 22in Samsung wide screen So i just plugged it into the second DVI slot on my graphics Card. When i went into the display config i set up dual monitors just to see if it was working. The dell monitor would blink up then quit on me.

When i was messing with the Display settings I made the Dell. Not my Samsung the Default Monitor. I unpluged the broken Dell and restarted. Now my computer regognizes the Samsung as the second monitor and it just shuts it off and recognizes nothing as the main.

I managed to get it into safe mode and it recognized the samsung but every time i try go back to Normal Start the screen is blank.

How can i get it to recognize the Samsung as my main?

Hi - I have recently acquired a new work computer with 1 widescreen Dell monitor (Dell E228WFPc 1680 x 1050, Monitor A) and my older 4:3 monitor (E178FPc 1024 x 768, Monitor B). The graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce GT 620. I cannot get them both working at the same time on an extended display.

One is plugged into (excuse my slightly less-than-technical language here!) the 'main' monitor port and one has a VGA-DVI adapter.

When either monitor A or B is plugged into the main port without the other plugged in, they work fine.

When monitor A, the widescreen, is plugged into the main port and B is plugged in via the adapter, A works perfectly and the PC detects monitor B (if I set it to extend displays, programs open in that screen but I cannot see anything - the screen is completely black).

When B is plugged into the main port and A is on the adapter, B boots up normally until the point where I would usually see my Windows log in, when it goes black and I can only see and move the cursor.

I thought it would be a case of adjusting the screen res down so that they weren't so drastically different - in fact I'm still sure that would help but I can't get the smaller monitor B to let me do so and it doesn't seem to make a difference when widescreen monitor A is plugged into the main port with B in the other?

A:Extended display monitor problems with one widescreen and one 4:3 monitor?

That is usually normal. Try dragging a window over to the other monitor and see if it works.

I ordered and today received a new Gateway DX4831 07 Window 7 Desktop Computer and a new FHX2300 23 inch Gateway Monitor. I connected the monitor and computer in accordance (I used the HDMI cable connection between the computer and the monitor) with the included documentation double checked the connections and then turned on the monitor first and then powered up the computer. The monitor displays Gateway for a second or two and then after about 10 seconds it quickly displays no signal before going completely black. Upon turning on the computer, it beeps once and then after about a minute I hear a whirring sound as if the hard drive is turning. After that, the computer is very quiet (as I have read in reviews that it should be), but the monitor remains black no matter how long I leave the computer on. This is the second Gateway DX4831 07 I have ordered/received in the last two weeks. The first one did the same thing and I sent it back and reordered the same model hoping the second one would work. I really want to keep this computer rather than send it back a second time since it is full of features for the price. Gateway’s support is virtually nonexistent so this is not a reasonable option. All I can do is return it for a full refund within 30 days of purchase. Can you tell what the problem is likely to be and how I can solve it so that I can keep this computer.

Hi, I have a very nice Gateway laptop, three years old, it is a P-Series MG1
with dual core Centrino 2000 mgz CPUs and 4 gigs of RAM and 17 inch screen.

It was dropped once from a short height and ever since there is a permanent black vertical band near the right hand side of the screen. Replacing the LCD
screen will cost $200.

I would like to be able to reduce the amount of the screen that the computer display uses, so that I can narrow it enough to avoid the black vertical band which blocks everything displayed beneath it. My idea is that there may be some way to adjust the display settings to a completely smaller size , to use only the screen only partially. I'd like to be able to just click and drag the desktop to a reduced size , filling to the edge of the blacked out band and no farther.
Do you think there is a way to do this? I am using Windows XP

A:Line on monitor, can I use just half of the monitor for display?

What you can try to do if you dont want to replace the screen now is just hook it up to an external monitor and use it that way until you are ready to replace the screen.If it wont work with another monitor then replacing the screen will take care of the problem.Trying to reduce the settings might work but i dont think its going to be practical enough to be usable to see anything decent.

This is my problem: I have the power saving settings set to turn off my monitor after 20 min. It does briefly turn off, only to turn on again 1 sec. later, displaying a faint very dark blue screen... It used turn off fine, but after upgrading from Windows 98SE to XP Pro I got this problem. Is this the OS or my video card?

Any clues?

Thanks all

A:"Turn monitor off" setting doesn't really turn off

Did you upgrade to XP right over the top of 98 or was it a clean install? If you did an upgrade over the top of 98 (and I know you don't want to hear this lol) then you should format and do a clean install. Upgrades rarely leave you with a stable system.

Things to try before you do that though:

1) Make sure your video card drivers are up to date.

2) Make sure Windows is updated - go to windowsupdate

3) try the system file checker (Start, Run, "sfc /scannow" [without the quotes]) to make sure your system files are intact.

Other than that I would say just do a format and install XP from scratch (to be honest, you should do this anyway if you haven't already, you'll get much better stability and performance).

I have a Lenovo Ideacentre all-in-one desktop running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit with 4 GB of RAM.
I have noticed that whatever I set for when to turn off the display, it always defaults to 15 minutes which is very infuriating. I understand that it the default setting of 15 minutes 
is used for laptops to save the battery but it is also being used on my all-in-one.
Does anyone know of a solution to my problem please? (I simply want to be able to set the length of display as I want it to be and not be restricted to 15 minutes at a time).

A:When to turn off the display

go to Power options
What Plans do you have set it to
Whatever plan its on Change plan setting it to Never or any interval you want on The " Turn off display" 
If its runs off the battery you have a separate option for example Battery/AC current power plans and Save changes, 
If the Sleep power option is before the Turn off display interval time then The Sleep option will supersede  the Display option

In my power mode setting window, I set "Sleep" to Never. However, I do not know what to do with "the Display frame. It seems to be somehow involved with Sleep but the examples I see at Geek have them different. If I want Sleep at Never, do I also want display at Never?

Thank you.

A:Turn off Display?

Depends on what you are trying to accomplish?

I use a screen saver and have sleep set to never but I have my display turn off after 20 minutes. I figure if I haven't done anything in 20 minutes it's unlikely I will soon so turning off the display is a good thing to do. All I have to do is move the mouse to turn it on again.

Whenever I close the lid of my notebook and open it sometimes the display won't show anything and it'll remain black. The backlight is always on whenever this happens and it can sometimes be resolved by opening and closing the lid a couple of times but most of the time i have to reboot the laptop completely and it's starting to bother me. Is there a way to resolve this issue?

Hi guys,
I hope you all might be able to help me with this one. I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question but here goes. So the situation is that my computer was working perfectky until I shut it down and disconnected it to move it into another room. After I reconected it, the computer turns on and I can hear the hard drives activating, however there is no display on the monitor. Also with this I can't turn the computer off using the power button or reset it once the computer has been turned on. i have to reach around the back of the computer and turn off the power supply manually. I tried testing to see if my video card was the problem by removing it and using the onboard display however the results were the same. I could really use some help. Thanks.

System specs

AMD 3500+ w/ 1 gig ddr400 ram
ATI radeon 800xl video card
500w power supply

A:No display/won't turn off

Typically you need to reconfigured the computer's BIOS to re-enable the onboard video. Since you can't see the display, the normal method for this is to take out the battery for a half hour or so, put it back in again and then restart the computer.

It can also be a bad monitor. Might try either putting yours on another computer or swapping in a known working one.

My monitor has been working alright, but out of nowhere it just went off, and won't turn back on, I tried to plug another cord and nothing happened, so I'm pretty sure it's the monitor. ~I use my computer in a cool room, so I'm guessing it's not caused by overheat.

Everything turns on, fans and everything. It's a completely new build. No input detected from a Samsung monitor.

I've swapped ram sticks to see if one of them is dead
I've reseated the video card

Don't know what to do.

Gonna pop my 4870 X2 into the computer to see if the video card is DOA. If not, the motherboard?

A:New Computer Build: Monitor doesn't turn on / Monitor doesn't initalize

your vga could be causing the issue, but that's only if you dont have onboard video as well.

Next time you post with a problem, make sure you give us detailed specs of your rig, when you dont its like saying "Hey, I have a red car, and it wont start."

I have 3 Benq XL2720Z monitors for gaming. XL2720Z LED Gaming Monitor | BenQ 16:9 LED Gaming monitors

I would like to know if it's better to turn off all 3 monitors by pressing the power button on all the monitors when not in use for over 12 hours or just let my computer turn the display off which I currently have a way to do to it by pressing a certain key.

Personally I would prefer to just let my computer turn the display off since I only have to press 1 button on my keyboard rather than have to press 3 power buttons on the monitors which don't really work that well.

However my final choice goes down to which is better for the monitors themself. I don't want to end up damaging the monitors.

Anyone know which way is safer? I can't seem to find a clear answer.

A:Turn Monitors Display Off or Fully Turn Monitors Off?

I got a UPS 1500 battery backup that has 1 plug that controls 3 others that makes the decision for me when the 1 plug is using no power or the machine is powered off

Prior I just used the button on the monitor seems more reliable than counting on a feature to work before windows even boots.

Didnt really solve my problem. Found out it's the problem with iMac bootcamp which Apple will likely fix. Something to do with the headphone in-put on iMac, windows can't sleep when it's plugged in.
Thanks all for help and viewing.

I've been trying to Turn off my display using the power settings in Vista 64 which didn't work for me. Tried using different programs like Mon0 1.1 etc, i downloaded from Cnet just to turn off my display but all failed. Display keep turning back on, even when there's no programs running. Tried all sorts of ways, running powercfg with code :
powercfg -Change -monitor-timeout-ac 10
powercfg -Change -monitor-timeout-dc 10

But doesn't seem to have any effect. Nothing.

I think there are programs running at the background which i don't know what is it, keeping my display or my computer from going to sleep mode. But seems too complicated for a novice like me to understand how PC and OS works.

Is there anyway to put the display to sleep mode? Any settings, powercfg code or anything? Basically i just want my display to be in sleep mode, not my computer. Can anyone please help me? Thanks in advance!

I am running bootcamp vista 64 on my iMac Quad Core i7.

A:Can't Turn off my display Vista 64

Go to search type cmd. Right click on CMD, run as administrator. In that prompt type this
powercfg -lastwake.... from CMD It will tell you what is waking your computer. Then we can fix it.

Do all this as administrator user, and after you have the sleep problem

Does the computer itself shut down? Do the fans stop and the lights go out and just the monitor stays on?

How do you turn off the screen/display on a P50 manually (not waiting for the screen off timer) but not putting the machine to sleep, similar to a Fn+F3 toggle on other Thinkpad models? Other laptops would have a toggle to turn the screen backlight on and off, while others will turn off the LCD display completely. Is this possible natively on the P50? Thank you.
