Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

My hpdx5150 MT is having problems. when i start it up it turns on, but the monitor stays off. im not sure what to do. is my moniter broken, or id it the computer base


Answers :

U need to first check if the signal cable is connected well.
check that the monitor is receiving power.
if so then maybe the vga card of the base unit is the one with the problem.  may need to put in another one to check if the oe ur having is the one with a problem. try that and get back to me.

Believe the loose connector may have caused damage somewhere else.


I'd remain focused on the batteries. You can't have a blue power light on, unless there is power to the drive, I say this because you do power up occasionally, albeit, for a short time. This should also rule out Operating Sytem failure. Not hard dri ... Toshiba Satellite M35X-S111 Notebook
