Make sure all the connections to power and video card are well sitted. Try to move the monitor to another computer and see if it works there.

i connected with my laptop, and the monitor seems to be fine without blinking. So i guess is the video card problem? If it is, since my video is built in to the mother board GeForce5200 is there anyway to fix it?

Could be the video card driver. Go to Device Manager in Control panel > System > hardware. Go to Display Adapter and uninstall the driver. Reboot the computer. It is very possible that windows will find the corect driver (if you have sp2 installed). Let us know what happens.

okay, i turned on my computer now. At the login part, after i click my account it went blank. And after a while it has blue screen, stating A problem has abeen detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

The problem seems to be caused by the following file: nv4_disp

The device drive got stuck in an infinte loop. THis usually indicataes problem with the device itself or wiwth the decie drive programming the hardware incorrectly.

i guess the driver problem.

How can i uninstall the driver when i cant login to the window.

thanks for helping :whistling:

Try to boot in safe mode. Press the power button and tap F8 repeatedly. That will take you to a menu from which you should choose safe mode.

i unistalled, and login to the window it works fine. Im installing the driver right now and during the half way it did the same thing again. Blink and shut down. So, what should i do?

----------------
I have uninstalled again, it works fine again but very thing is so big. I think is just the driver problem.

Please right down the specifications of the video card (make and model) and I'll look for a driver for you. If you don't know the details download Everest from my signature, run it, expand Display > pci/agp video. write down the details.

Use this link to download the driver. Click the "click here" note near the top of the page. Save it into a folder that you can easilly find. Switch off your internet connection. Disable the antivirus and any other antimalware program that run in the background. Install the driver.

Do you have another, onboard, video connection? If yes, move the monitor cable to the other connection.
