Resuming Windows - Blank Screen - Monitor No Signal


We have tried a half dozen times to turn on the windows 7, 64bit system without success. The resuming windows message appears then the screen goes blank then the screen goes to looking like there is no pc attached at all and reports no signal. We have been using the system regularly and almost daily, on shut down there are updates 1 of n to install. That happened the night before the crash and it was 1 of 1 and taking over 15 minutes so i turned off only the monitor so we could sleep.

No Signal With Acer Al2216 Monitor

I have used this acer monitor with 32 bit xp system and upgraded to windows 7  64 bit system. On initial hookup everything worked fine i then had to get data off the old computer and hooked it back up and the monitor then showed no signal. So i unhooked the old computer with xp and rehooked the new windows 7 computer and it shows no signal as well. Please advise how i can get signal back to monitor and if it is advisable to swap computers if i am going to have this issue. I still need to use the old one with the data that is on it.

Monitor Loses Signal In Media Center

Running windows 7 rc on a dell dimension e521. Runs great, except for the odd thing that has been happening lately. Randomly, while watching tv through windows media center, i'll hear the sound that usually plays when a usb cable is unplugged, and then my monitor will lose its signal. There is no way to get the signal back, as i've tried unplugging and replugging the monitor in, both power and dvi. Ive tried ctrl+alt+del. I usually have to hard restart, and then my monitor comes back on when the bios screen comes on. I want to say its a driver issue, but it happens so randomly, i just cant tell what it is. Any guesses?

Monitor Will Just Go Blank

I have an issue where my monitor will just go blank. The computer is running but no display. My first thought was that this is a display adapter/video driver issue but i not longer think so. Let me explain. My set up is a hp m9040n running windows 7 ultimate x64. I have a nvidia 9600 gso card that is less than 6 months old and use a samsung syncmaster t240 monitor.

This first started happening about one month ago right after i upgraded my video card driver to the latest version. I would be away from the computer for awhile and when i came back no amount of mouse shaking would bring the screen on. At that point a hard shut down and boot up would bring things back.

Thursday it got worse. Hard shut downs would not bring anything back but i would see the bios startup screen so obviously the monitor and display adapter has some output. I started in safe-mode and installed that latest driver from the nvidia website. No difference, in fact it appears to be the same driver that windows update put out.

My next step was to roll back my driver to the one that came with my video card. This kind of works. There are new symptoms now. Now what happens is that after working for awhile i would hear the usual kind of insert/disconnect sound (like plugging in a usb device) and then the screen resolution would change from 1920x1200 to 1024x768. For some reason the monitor according to the screen resolution control would go from my monitor to a generic. If i click on the detect button, the screen will blank out and once again i have to do a hard shut down. The hard shut down followed by a boot in safe mode and and reboot restores things to normal.

Media Center Causes Blank Monitor

I am using windows 7 as an htpc hooked up to a 42 inch plasma tv. I have media center set to open on start-up at which point everything works great. I will occasionally close or minimize media center in order to check email on the machine. When i try to go back into media center my screen goes completely blank about 70% of the time. Minimizing vs a full close/open of media center doesn't seem to matter. Ctrl-alt-del or alt-tab don't work either. My only solution is to do a hard reset. Is there anyone else out there with this same issue?

Screen Goes Blank

After i have updated my computer from xp to win7 i have been experiencing a strange thing. My screen goes blank after 60 seconds of inactivity.initially when it happened i saw that my graphic card driver (nvidia geoforce 8400gs) was not updated - which was also causing some blue screen errors. After i updated the drivers the blue screen error went away but the blank screen error sort of comes and goes. It stays for some time (a week or something) and then goes away for a month etc. Two reasons i could think of.

1. Power options - everything set to "never"
2. Graphics drivers - up to date

Any idea why i would be seeing this ?

Blank Screen After Upgrade

During the upgrade from vista ultimate to windows 7 ultimate the screen went blank so i am not even sure that win 7 installation was successful. As i could see nothing on the screen i waited 5 hours until my pc went absolutely quiet with no sign of installation activity. I then did a hard reboot. The pc powers up and powers down 3 times before staying on, but the screen remains blank as the monitor is in power saving mode. I have tried everything to get the monitor out of power saving mode but cannot change it.

This means that i cannot boot into any mode (safe mode included) as i have no monitor picture. I carried out the ~win advisor tests and removed all programs it suggested. The only thing i could not remove was the "ati catalyst control centre and install manager" each time i tried to remove them i got the message that setup.exe was not responding, so i could not remove them. How can i get my monitorto come on without being in power saving mode, and if not, is there any other way i can boot into safe mode which will switch the monitor on?

Video Driver Causes Blank Screen

Running w7 ult 64, just did complete install. Ati raedon 3200 chips integrated with motherboard. Have 3 3200 driver versions on computer (one from ms and two from ati) and have tried them all, when the 3200 drivers are installed the display goes to a solid - nothing showing- black screen. Have to disable ati drivers and use vga to get screen images. Have installed the v 9. 12 catalyst programs/drivers & the version which ati has for the motherboard.

This hardware was working in the vista home premium 64 version.

I'm out of ideas, any thoughts?

Blank Screen After Installing Win 7

I have been wrestling with windows 7 to get it to run on my new machine i just built, apparently i have the upgrade only version, so i had to install vista then windows 7, etc. Then when i got that running yesterday windows tells me my cd key, that i have physically in my hand, on the original box, is invalid. I check the error code online, find out that i need to call microsoft to activate it over the phone, because i have used it too many times in a certain time frame. All of these uses are re-formats by the way.

So, today when i tried to log into windows so i could get the error code window again, and make my phone call to microsoft my windows won't start. I get past the "windows is loading" screen, with the four floating balls that form the windows logo, and it loads my mouse pointer, and a black screen. And then, nothing. I let it sit for over an hour, still nothing, i try ctrl-alt-delete to get it working on something, maybe kick start the load, nothing. I loaded all fail safe settings in my bios and then ran it in safe mode, still the same result. I honestly have no idea where to go with this next.

Blank Screen On Restart With A Cursor Blinking

I have a inspiron 1545 and when i restart with a verizon wireless modem plugged in to a usb port & it gives me a blank screen with a cursor blinking in the top left corner. When i pull it out on restart it boots. However, when i start it with it plugged in it works fine. I know the problem is my computer because my wife has the same 1545 and no problem. I can work around by pulling it, on restart but it seems my computer has a problem.

Also, upon further testing it is not the verizon wireless modem only , that hanged up restart. It is the fact i have 2 modems plugged in. The other is a wireless logitech mouse. When i take either out restart works. So with both plugged in restart goes to a blank screen & when i only have one of them plugged in restart works. I have disabled the usb on boot sequence and it had no effect. Any ideas?

Blank Blue Screen - No Bios Error

I recently built myself a new computer. It's components are:-2 nvidia gtx470 connected via sli-core i7 930-3 3gb ddr3 ram sticks-asus p6x58d-e x58 r motherboard-antec|tp-750 750w rt power supply now, it's been running fine for the past 2 weeks. Perfectly, in fact. However my dad dragged me away on vacation to the dominican republic so i left the computer with my mom and grandma since they use it. Now, last night my mom told me that she got a problem. When she turned it on and tried to access her session she got a blank blue screen. No error messages, nothing.

I told her to hard restart it, and when she did it gave her the "windows shut down unexpectedly, start in safe mode or boot windows normally?" Message. When she told it to boot up normally, it was fine. I told her to restart it again to see if the bios would report any errors like it normally does when there's hardware failure but nothing came up. The more i think about it though, the less likely it seems like it'd be a hardware issue though, since this problem would've arisen much sooner since before i left i was playing alot of games, wouldn't it?

This morning when my grandmother turned on the computer again she got the same problem. I told her to hard reset it again, and once more it booted up normally after that. I had her run r-kill (which reported no malicious processes) and run malware bytes and microsoft security essentials. After that i'm going to have her insert the windows 7 disc to run a repair. What exactly is the problem though? Is there anything else that i should be doing?

Black Screen When Using A Monitor

I am on a windows 7 starter net book. I just got a new monitor that has a lower resolution than my old one, it no longer works. When trying to use just the monitor the screen goes black. When trying to start windows in low resolution it starts it in low resolution on the netbook screen and not the monitor screen. When it is being sent out of both the monitor and the netbook the resolution is just what my netbook is. Is there a way that i can modify the resolution of the monitor because right now it is basically useless.

Monitor Not Displaying On All The Screen

I have just completed the windows 7 home premium upgrade (from windows vista home premium) on my dell studio xps 16 laptop. Everything has gone smoothly except now, when i connect my laptop to my dell sw2409w 24" monitor (via hdmi), i'm having a small issue. While windows does indeed detect the monitor type correctly and sets the resolution to 1920x1080, it doesn't fill up the entire screen. There is a 1-2" black space all the way around the outside.

I initially went into the monitor settings (using the buttons on the monitor) to auto-adjust the screen settings, but they're all disabled in hdmi mode. The monitor works perfectly with my other computer, and the screen on the laptop is fine too. I've updated the monitor driver, as well as the driver for my video card (ati mobility radeon hd 4670).

Any suggestions?

Website Screen Is Filling Monitor

Website screen is filling monitor - instead of having access @ top & bottom of screen to other websites/programs. I've lost the screen i usually have - where you have a top & bottom showing all the websites you have open, and on the bottom, outlook, word, etc. None of that is showing up, i just have one big view of my one and only current website page that i'm viewing. How do i get my other setting back where i can access everything?

Monitor Shut Off After Boot Screen

Can't believe i have to ask this problem again, previously my problem is my screen gets lower resolution when windows supposed to shows login screen (honestly it's remain unsolved) now my monitor suddenly just turn off when windows supposed to shows login screen (even though i can clearly hear the login screen's sound. )

It works fine after i press the power button to power up my laptop, the monitor showing bios & windows boot screen, but after that my monitor just turn off. Even when i'm performing clean boot (disable all startup items and disable other than microsoft services via msconfig) this problems still remains.

The only thing i could do it's just press the power button to shut down my laptop improperly then press the power button again to power up, then the problem's gone. Why this problem come on my 1st boot, suddenly gone in 2nd boot and sometime happens again when i'm trying to restart or power up again after shutting down my laptop from my 2nd boot?

Need to upgrade my graphic driver? Already have the newest version 
15. 12. 75. 4. 1930 (8. 15. 10. 1930) from downloadcenter. Intel.com

My device manager shows no problem/conflict at all. Don't have any second monitor plugged in my laptop ever since i've installed windows 7.

Live Tv Shows No Signal But There Is

Windows media center tv hangs after re-installing windows 7, quite naturally i had to re-tune tv within windows media center. It appears to have download all the channels and schedules, but it states there is no tv signal when i know there is. In the past it has looked for a tv signal and just hung. At least i get a message now stating that there is no signal. All the channels are there complete with channel numbers and programs. I decided to re-tune, but how can i do that? Would a file delete be in order?
