Hey I don't know how skilled you guys are at diagnosing problems via some video footage, but I thought I'd try. I start my computer and it seems like it will start ok, then it hiccups and video shifts upward about 10% then it blues out and says "no signal" on my tv. Anything thoughts as to the culprit? I had a lot of dust in there which i vaccuumed out, but it didn't help.

First off nice monitor.

I would suggest the issue is with the video card driver.

What happens if you go into safe mode (tap F8 right after the HP logo disappears)?

Please don't attempt this if you are not comfortable reinstalling drivers (i.e. locating and downloading drivers from the internet.)

If you can get into safe mode I would recommend deleting your video card from the Device manager.

1. click start then run.
2. type devmgmt.msc then click OK.
3. Click the plus next to Display Adapters.
4. Write down the name of each display adapter.
4. Right click every item shown inside Display adapters. then click uninstall.
5. Reboot your computer.

Your display should work now. However, the resolutions should be very bad.

you will now have to go to the computer manufacturer's web site (hp.com) and download the latest drivers for you display adapter (video card).

Let me know how this works.

Also, have you tried a different screen (preferably a computer monitor)? Did this just begin happening recently?
