Having problems with your HP Computer Monitors ?

The HP computer is on but nothing is on the monitor what should i do?

Answers :


Before you investigate, check the connections. Make sure that all the connections are dead solid.

Go for conventional method.

Swap the Monitor. If the other monitor would work with existing settings, there is something wrong with this monitor.If the other one would not work, there is something wrong with the whole PC/Notebook that we need to investigate.

Now, if the monitor is at fault. Again to be on a safe side, use it with some other CPU. If problem still persists, fault is with Monitor.

Might be Video card or display. Advise to call Hp and get it done rather than spending more bucks on experimentation.

Hope i helped you.

Hi mathew_weic! I will be more than glad to assist you in this concern.. lets check first the cable connection if the cable from the monitor is connected to the video port of the computer and the power plug is plug in to the wall outlet, it is a 15 pin port connection - the color is blue.. then reboot the computer, observe and listen if you hear a beeping sound or a long tone, if there is or none. check as well if there is a power light on the front panel of the monitor. check if the light is green or amber, if there is no light on the monitor, monitor have a problem and its a possible power supply problem, you can contact a nearest hp service center to check and repair the monitor, but if there is a light on the monitor either green or amber, open the cabinet of your cpu computer and to have a visual on the mother board, remove the video card of your computer and try to clean the gold plated part of the card with steadler eraser, scratch the gold plated part using the eraser until it looks gold. do the same with the memory card of the computer. make sure that before you do this procedure the power of the computer is unplug from the wall outlet..to avoid electric shock. insert the video card and the memory card and reboot. this should fix the problem.
