For Online Computer Support, Ask a Computer Technician
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer, I look forward to assisting you today. Do you see any startup information flash on the screen during startup or even see a flashing cursor?
You may disregard the Premium Service Offer for Remote Support. That is an automated popup initiated by the web site.
When you say the monitor is normal, what does that mean?
Okay so is the monitor operating normally then?
Okay I was just trying to understand what you were seeing, and you are right! That is not normal!! How old is your computer?
Okay, that is probably pretty close. Your monitor may be failing? Do you have another you can try to see if it does the same thing?
Well if it takes several times of cycling the power on and off to make the monitor display come on, that is never a good sign. You can check the video cable at the monitor and computer end to make sure it is tight. You can also make sure your computer's software is up to date. I can assist you with that but it would most likely require me connecting to your computer and that may not cure the problem.
I would be happy to stand by if you want to check the connection?
Okay. I think then we are probably back to the monitor failing? It is not uncommon for that to happen.
Please let me know if you need anything more and I would be happy to assist you!
