Screen problems when booting or shutting down

  suburban train 00:00 26 Feb 2003

Ive got a packard bell PC imedia only had it for 1 year and im using Windows XP pro. And the monitor is powered by the PC unit

Just recently i have been having problems with the screen or it could be the monitor.

What happens is sometimes when swiching on the PC the PC itself appears start up and the monitor light ups but the screen remains blank

so what i have to do this take out the power plug from the PC unit and bang it back in then it starts no probs.

The same happens when restarting on occasions and sometimes when i come to shutdown the screen will go off but the PC still on

Any help?

I would try a new cable, but one with a three pin plug on the end, so that you can plug into a separate power supply.

I thought of that but do you think its power problems?

Ive never had this problem before.

Do you think theres something up the power supply on the PC, just recently it has slowed down

There may be, but the reason I suggested a new cable, is that your present one is probably not making a good contact and if your getting a new one, then it is better to go for the separate power supply.
