Old monitor wont switch on - Computer Monitors


Answers :

Hi friend,
\015\012First, try connecting your monitor to a known good PC, possibly the old laptop you are using now. If the monitor works, the problem is with the video card in your PC. If the monitor does not come on, it is the monitor. It is usually cheaper to purchase a new monitor than to have an old one repaired, unless the monitor is still under warranty.

Try plugging a known good monitor to your PC. If the monitor works, your old monitor is fried and needs to be replaced.

If Your monitor works when connected to another PC, the problem could be your video card. First, then you turn on your PC, do the power supply and case cooling fans run. If they don't, it could be the power supply.

Next, open the computer case. Before you do anything inside, unplug the power.

IMPORTANT!! Touch any metal portion of the computer case to ground yourself to the PC. The slightest static spark can destroy computer circuits.

If the video card is the card type that plugs into a slot on the motherboard, remove the retaining screw or fastener at the top of the card, carefully remove the card, handling the card by the edges as to not disturb the circuits on the card, and re-install the card. Sometimes simply re seating the card corrects the problem.

If that doesn't work, replace the video card with a similar type card. Maybe now is a good time for a video card upgrade.

If the video card is integrated into the motherboard, you can only install a new card into one of the PCI slots on the motherboard. When the PC boots for the first time, go into bios and disable the on board video card.\015\012hope this helps u
