  Monitor Shuts Down on Boot-Up 
 Date Written 
Raymond B Corob May 31, 2011, 05:14am EDT Report Abuse
On boot-up monitor comes on momentarily with tag "Analog", then shuts down. Sometimes I can activate it by pressing the off button on the monitor, then press again and it comes on bright and clear. Most of the time this does not work. I know this is a monitor problem, not a computer problem because I have connected the monitor to other computers and it does the same thing. Can I fix this or do I have to junk the monitor?

A few obvious items:

Have you tried a different cable?

If you're using an adapter with cables, have you tried a different adapter?

If the monitor has multiple input ports (e.g vga v. dvi v. hdmi v. component, etc) have you tried all the other inputs? Sometimes one input will be damaged while the others work fine. For example, I have a monitor where the HDMI port works fine with the HDMI output of a video card, but DVI (digital-only) input produces lines across the display when used with the DVI (digital only) output of a video card (tested with multiple display cards). VGA (analog) and component (analog) inputs also work fine.

Check for any connector damage/mis-alignments (both male and female connectors/pins).

have you tried hooking it up to a different monitor, to make sure the computer is actually booting up?

Also, will it let you into bios?

Boot into Safe Mode and run a system restore back to a point before the problem started.
