The light of the monitor always stays on "orange" (stand-by mode)

Is this a bad video card or somthing else?  Thanks.

Hi mcrmg,

Could be a failing monitor, videocard or whatever, the easiest thing to find out if the monitor is faulty is trying to connect it to another computer. See if it works there. Same counts for the videocard, try another card and see if that one does work.

Greetings,

LucF

when you say light , i mean the lights for one of the buttons below the display ?

Other than that is your monitor working correctly or is it blank ?

Sunray, I think that is quite obvious => stays on "orange" (stand-by mode)

It is strange.  I thought it would be a bad monitor or bad video card as you guys said.  But it turned out it was the machine itself, when I ddid hard reboot for several times, the monitor would show a thing (blank with orange light ), if I left it for awhile then tuened it on again, it worked fine.......

mcrmg,

Hmm.. Not clear whether your problem is solved or not ..

Once you reboot your machine , orange light didnot glow and the monitor was fine (working).
Now if you left for sometime , orange light comes back again blinking and is there anything on monitor.. Why dont you disable standby and check if the same thing happens..


Thanks,
Sunray

really deoends on the monitor and grpahics card combo

have a client with some cheap PC's

if the monitor is not switched on before the PC powers on, the monitor wont pick up a signal. Either the graphics card doesnt initialize because it doesnt see a monitor, or the monitor is flacky

off thing to have
