From the Forums

A user in the forum details it further:

Is there any reason for it to show it sometimes but not others?   . . Its like the monitor doesn't realise there is anything to display then when it kicks in, its too late to show it. I have a strange issue with my monitor.

If it works, this would instantly tell us your faulty hardware/issue; your monitor. Regards, Undocked Windy . . . . .   I'll see. If it doesn't work, then..

This seems to also always happen if I restart. When I turn my computer on, sometimes it will show the BIOS splash screen and other times it won't.

What causes Monitor doesn't display BIOS

If you received this error on your PC, it means that there is a malfunction in your system. Common causes are incorrect or unsuccessful installation or removal of software that could leave invalid entries in the Windows registry, the effects of a virus or malware attack, an incorrect system shutdown due to a power failure, or another factor in which a person with little technical knowledge accidentally deletes the required A system file or registry entry, as well as several other reasons. The immediate cause of "Monitor doesn't display BIOS" is a failure when one of its normal operations is properly started by a system or application component.

Dual Monitors, HDMI monitor doesn't display BIOS

The only way would be to try and edit the video card's bios so that the HDMI port is made to be the primary port when powering on. If the new is the only thing connected then it should display the bios screen when booting up.

Was a hindrance today when I was tinkering with my SSD and had to go to BIOS, and frankly I'd like to be able to see in case anything goes wrong, like a BSOD or Windows update etc. My new monitor is another Samsung, SyncMaster SA350.

So I bought a new monitor and I have it plugged in using HDMI, but a problem I get is that when both monitors are plugged in the HDMI has no display until it gets to Windows, so I cannot see the boot process of my PC, because my old monitor as explained above has problems turning on. Short of something like this, - BYTECC DVI-HM DVI Male to HDMI Female Cable Adaptor

not much as that is a function of the video card and nothing to do with Windows. Failing that if the old monitor is that bad, why use it? So how do I get my HDMI monitor to give me a picture when the other monitor is plugged in.

It's off warranty and for reference it's a Samsung SyncMaster 226BW.

My old monitor has problems turning on, I can leave it on for 30hrs before it decides to display a picture, or I can manipulate it by unplugging the DVI cable from the back, but sometimes even that takes a few tries.

Monitor doesn't display anything?

So we did that but to get to the battery i removed the Graphics Card. but it said No Signal - Digital. SO we tried to remove the battery out of the MB he said it would reset the memory or some crap. My bro is cominghome in 10 minutes ill ask him but if you reply quicker that will be great.

I also read on other sites that i should change some settings in the BIOS but how the **** do i do that if i can't see anything!!

It turned on alright no weird sounds but the moniter didn't diplay anything, the LED was amber so i turned the monitor off and on and the LED came up blue. ive taken out the GFX card and i have pressed it in firmly till it locked.

so i no it isnt the screen, btw we used the same cord and everything. we succesfully removed the battery and replaced it after 30 seconds. SO we tried a number of techniques I can't remeber from the internet and he did some crap that i coulnd't figure out as i said im technicly retarded when it comes to this stuff. My specs are 80gig HDD
8500GT nivedia GFX card
M2N-X Asus MB
5400+ that thingo with the fan ( as i said im retarded at that crap)
and a 550w Extreme Coolermaster PSU.

Ive tried taken out everything wireless card unpluggin the CDROM incase it wasn't getting enough power but that didn;t help . "You may also want to reseat your memory and any other PCI cards you have installed." What does that mean. I tried my screen on my bros pc and the scre...

My Monitor doesn't display red...

Try connecting it again. Then try disconnecting the monitor from the computer. First shut off the computer. If you still don't have any red, then the red gun inside the monitor is probably shot.

Look at the end of the cable. You'll have to replace the monitor.

Do you see any bent pins? Is there maybe a place I can go to download drivers that can fix the problem, or is my monitor blown?

I doubt it's a software problem.

Since my monitor doesn't display red, what all hope is there of me fixing it? Turn the computer on.

Fax monitor doesn't display

Appologies if you've thought of this already.
I haven't actually used the fax facilities on XP so the only thing I can ask is are you certain that you have installed the fax software from the XP disk, I remember reading that the fax part of windows isn't installed by default you have to choose to install it.
Despite checking all the boxes I can find the fax monitor refuses to display when sending faxes - I am running Windows XP.Any suggestions?

20" LCD monitor doesn't display right

The monitor is Technika 20 LCD - 106. Try running Windows Update, assuming you haven't already done so. The Catalyst Control Center shows all the details of my other flat screen monitors but the new one. Also, is the power supply up to the job?

I presume that I need the monitor drivers but cannot locate them anywhere. It conects up ok to the PC & displays the images ok (desktop, screensavers, etc) but the fonts are all broken up and are impossible to read. Upgraded all the graphics software without a positive result. Been through everything I can think off but no luck as yet.

Have done this numerous times but never encountered this, sods law it would happen on my own machine.

Monitor doesn't display when computer is on

I haven't updated or changed any setting on my computer before this happened. Green Light on motherboard is on. and sometimes (rarely) When monitor starts to display, it shows that my cpu is overclocked at the wrong speed (1100 instead of 2500). It's like 8 out of 10 times (that) my monitor won't display anything even though my cpu is on.

Its monitor won't display anything even though my computer is on.
(LED green light on the monitor is keep blinking, even though the comp is on)
Also, there is no beep sound when it happens. I also unseated and reseated graphic card. It wouldn't work. I tried reseating RAM.

It did work for a while then the problem came back. Here is a specification of my computer
PSU 300watt
Motherboard: ASUS A7N8X
CPU: AMD Athlon 2500+
Ram: 2 GB DDR
OS: WIndows XP SP2
Graphic Card: nVidia GeForce FX 5200 128 MB

Any one know how to solve this problem or having a similar problem? They're working fine. I have to either re-overclock or press restart button in order to get CPU running at the correct speed.

So I have to turn my computer on and off (also restart (reset button) many times. Heat sink and CPU fan is actively running. let us know!!!

Power supply is working.

Thank you

try a diff monitor if you can, or try a diff g-card? I also open my computer case, checking fan, heat sink, power supply.

Monitor Doesn't Display Correctly

Can anyone help me? I am on a network at work and running Windows 2000 Professional. I have Windows XP at home and it comes with a System Restore Program...and I restored my sisters Windows 98 operating system with command prompt. Even when I open Internet Explorer, the graphics are terrible, wrong colors, distorted.

Is there a way to restore the uninstalled program? HELP!!

I have a terrible problem!!

By mistake I uninstalled a VGA program from the add/remove programs in the control panel and now my monitor does not display my desktop correctly and some of my programs are acting funny.

Monitor decides it doesn't want to display?

Should I reinstall the driver? You can try updating/downgrading the drivers, or simply uninstall the nVidia drivers and test with the Windows drivers.

I don't think it's the monitor, as this monitor works fine, has worked fine for years, not to mention the brand new monitor I bought a week ago and had to return was doing the same thing before I realized it was broken (if my memory serves me correctly). This is the first and only driver I've downloaded, as well as the newest one released.

What do you guys think? I feel as if the monitor isn't receiving the signal from the video card quickly enough and for some reason doesn't continue to try to look for a signal.

I've just built this computer a few days ago, and occasionally the monitor doesn't seem to want to display anything.

I'm using a GeForce GTX 460 1GB with 280.26 driver. Just a thought. Should I maybe try an older driver? For instance, when you turn the PC on, you will see the motherboard manufacturer's logo, then it says "Starting Windows", then when it would normally switch to my login screen, it doesn't -- just darkness.

It only seems to happen when the monitor is "switching" to another mode (perhaps resolutions). This one isn't beta.

The first step would be verification with another monitor.

computer on, but monitor doesn't display anything.

Thank you. THe computer gradually started shutting down, then at startup when it said COMPAQ, all the pixels where weird and displaced in random locations and the monitor would display black (but ON nonetheless), so me and my dad assumed it was the PSU. PS: the computer also does not make that beeping sound at start up anymore, if that helps. Replaced DVI cables, same problem, swapped monitors same problem.

It all started when I put my faulty power supply from my other pc on this one. PSU: 550 watts, CPU: dual core 2ghz, 2gb ram, 160 gb HDD, ati 5550

Now the computer doesn't display anything on the monitor, the monitor acts as if there's no information being sent to it so it goes to standby mode.

Would someone please help me out? I have no idea what it is at this point. Bought a new power supply, still same problem. Thought it was the video car (8600gts nvidia), bought a new GPU (ati 5550 1gb ddr3).

Monitor doesn't display anyting

Since everything else seems to be running normal this is what to look at there. I've unplugged everything, restarted over and over -- nothing.

Hey all. A couple of days ago it did the same thing, but instead of coming back on it stayed black.

Sounds like the video card may be toast on you! The warning about the card was the hardware failure detection Dell apparently has inplace and why you were seeing that appear. The one way to find out if this is the case would be using another card. Please could someone help me!

I turned the power off, left it for a short while, and when I turned it back on everything was returned to normal. However, today the screen isn't returning. On custom builds in most cases a long beep followed by two short depending on bios is what you typically hear at post time when a card fails.

If still under warranty you would need to bring it back or send it in to be covered.

The screen is just displaying black. The PC is starting up fine (in that I can hear it), but there's no output on the screen. Thank you.

Around a week ago, while using my Dell Dimension 9200, the screen would go black for a couple of seconds and then come back, displaying an error in the bottom right of the screen about my graphics card (NVIDIA 7900). If the picture returns with the substitute or replacement card you've found the problem. Pressing a couple of buttons on the screen displays the following message:
2: Digital Input
In Power Save Mode...

New desktop, monitor doesn't display

but there is no display on the monitor. Have you already tried just running a vga cable to the monitor to see the card is otherwise working? Also, not sure if applicable, but just fyi.....

Once adapter replaced they could run off the DVI port

i connecting the monitor's cable to the graphic card by the DVI to VGA/D-sub Adapter that came with the card. At the first time i thought something might wrong with the power connectors so i tried to reorganize the power connectors but the result still the same. someone with similar problem with no monitor display indicated their issue was traced back to the DVI / VGA adapter.

Also the graphic card fan run very loud and there are two red LED light on the back of the card. Please help....... :blackeye:

i assume there's a VGA port on your graphic's card as well. CPU fan also not running.

My DVI doesn't work - no display on the monitor

I need a DVI so that I can NVIDIA scale it cause VGA doesn't have NVidia Scaling.. I connect the two monitor on my one video card, the Acer X193HQ in DVI then I have another monitor Acer H193HQV in VGA... I turned off my computer then back on a single monitor the DVI-I on my X193HQ = no display (no signal) But when I plug my VGA to the monitor is has a dispay but when DVI it has no signal...

Hey, guys... After I turned it on my pc..

For test purposes try to get another DVI cable and see if it will work.

I'm just wondering if someone can help me here about my DVI.. Please help me..

Display doesn't reach edges of monitor.

I've tried using image adjustments on AMD VISION Engine Control Center, the display can't be moved anywhere near to the center of the monitor and there's no option to do overscanning. The monitor is my second of extended displays, the first being a LCD TV connected with a HD cable. Its drivers are fully updated, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, I've tried factory resetting my monitor and computer, I've tried using 3 different VGA cables. Have you tried using the auto adjust feature on the screen? (Might have skipped this when reading your post.)

I manage to get it perfectly lined up, but then the monitor has an input signal out of range error.ANY help would be greatly appreciated. I'm using an AMD Radeon HD 6570.

Display/resolution doesn't fit monitor borders

screen resolution does not match my screen monitor borders. Methods I've tried solving this so far:

- Deleting graphic drivers from windows device manger and let windows set it own drives
- Playing around with windows global scaling (doesn't help only the icons/apps gets bigger)
- Installing fresh updated drivers from Intel/Nvidia
- Playing around with all resolution sizes and options

any ideas on how to fix it? If you have current drivers and applications, there should be a console you can open to adjust it. What kind of graphics card are you using?

Resolution is currently set to 1920X1080 and I still have gaps of 1-2 cm from monitor borders, resolution doesn't fully fit my monitor as it use to in windows 8.1. Nvidia control panel is in the pane that opens when I right-click on the desktop and it allows resolutions that fit my screen, that are not necessarily 19x10.

LCD display doesn't work, external monitor does

Replaced the motherboard, the display still won't work. I'm stumped. I can hook up a 50" TV using the display port cable and see the desktop and use the computer, but the integrated display refuses to work. Any similar experiences or ideas to explore or check out?

The fuse is VERY fast burning and easy to blow. I replaced the display and the connecting cable.

W520 laptop display stopped working - acting like the backlight has died.

It is important to wear a grounding wrist strap when doing repairs that involve the screen or LCD cables.

No change.

Computer display (monitor) doesn't show anything

It is just a black screen. What do i do? I can't get out of safe mode because i just can't see anything at all. I wanted to put my new computer (which is a windows 8 hp desktop) into safe mode because i thought i had a virus and wanted to go into safe mode to see if i did.

So i select the option to go into safe mode in the computer (i did the msconfig option being that i just didn't know another way to boot it into safe mode).

I am typing this on my old computer. Get a paid version of Macrium Reflect. {for the boot time recovery environment}
Image your OS when things are running good. Sit back & relax since you can now reinstall your OS with very little effort & time.

Reinstall your OS. The light on the computer monitor is just flashing instead of staying solid like it usually does. The computer restarts and when it booted up again, my computer monitor is not showing anything at all.

Monitor doesn't display 1920x1080 resolution

I've installed the drivers for both the monitor and the video card.

When I try to select 1920x1080 it essentialy says "Format not supported" and reverts back. The monitor right now is at 1600x1200, which is terrible on my eyes.

Win7 recognizes second monitor - but it doesn't display

In fact, the monitor doesn't seem to recognize that it's connected, because the orange "power but no input" light is on rather than the green "power and input" light. That said, this is a new problem. This is a Windows 7 64-bit installation on a Dell Dimension E520. Any help you can give me is much appreciated - I want my productivity back!

Uninstall and reinstall the graphics driver.
My second (DVI) monitor is detected by Windows but doesn't display anything.

The computer I'm using is older (3+ years) and has frustrated me a few times, most notably in the past 2 months. Have you tried swapping the monitor on ports to see if the problem follows the monitor?

Do both monitors work if connected individually? In both the display settings and the NVIDIA control panel, I can see a second (Impression) monitor, but it's blank and I can't get it to show anything.
