Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario SR1920NX PC Desktop ?

My Girlfriends Compaq Presario sr1920nx has lots of problems... the one right now is the display. I replaced her monitor with another used one because it died. Now the one I just put on won't stay on, you have to turn it off and back on every 30 seconds to 4 or 5 minutes.


Answers :

Please check your cable, video settings, video card drivers and your monitor settings.

Also test the monitors on another computer. If they turn on while connected on another computer then your problem is your video card on your problem computer, that's if all else fails. This would mean that you would need to replace your video card.

So let's begin. It's obvious checking your video cable is pretty easy.
Ensure that both ends of the video cable are plugged in nice and tight and secure. Usually this video cable is blue at the ends.

Check your Video Card Driver

Go to your device manager in Windows.
Nagivate to Control Panels/System/Hardware Device Manager in Windows XP.
In Windows Vista and 7, Navigate to Control Panels, System, Device Manager
Look in Monitor and see if there is a yellow question mark or exclamation mark. If there are then right click on them and update the driver. Also while you're in here, go ahead and make sure there are no yellow question marks or exclamation marks. IF there are then go ahead and right click and update the drivers. You will need internet access for this. Follow the prompts to completion.

Let me know if this solves your problem.
