white screen on monitor ?

  May$ 13:12 04 Sep 2003

Hi i was wondering if anyone could help me. A couple of days ago i booted up my computer as normal and waited for my monitor to come on. Instead it came up with a white screen with white lines across it. I know the PCs ok because i can shut it down from the keyboard but the monitor just keeps showing the white screen.The monitor power is ok and switches on fine.
Thanks for advice!

Can you try the monitor on another pc or another monitor on your pc.

I only have one PC so i can't try it. Good idea though. Do you reckon it could be because the tube blew inside?

some monitors if disconnected from the computer and switched on show a diagnostic red green blue test page.might be worth a try.if it does and it works ok then its the graphics card thats at fault.

I've tried it with the PC off but still get the white screen. The test page doesnt come up at all.

not all monitors have this means of testing.

the monitor needs to be physically unplugged from the grahics card/computer and switched on.
