Computer screen is blue (not BSOD)

January 2, 2010 at 09:11:11
Specs: Windows XP

It is not the blue screen of death. The computer turns blue and I have to hit it to get rid of it. Sometimes it takes long to get it off. Is there anything I can do?

If you need to hit it, probably some component is not seated well, so it causes troubles !

Reseat the computer parts and see what happens....

It could be a problem with the monitor connection or the monitor itself if you're using a desktop. Possibly even the power being supplied to the monitor - a shortage could trigger a lapse.

Blank blue screens can also be tripped by deeper rooted problems with viruses and damaged registry files. I would suggest you run a full system scan for spyware and malware. Remove any threats you find - Malwarebytes is the best program for the job and much touted around here.

@KirstyN,

The problem goes away as soon as the OP hits the machine....it seems it isn`t malware-related problem....

Its is a desktop.

I have tried moving the plug that goes from the monitor to the CPU and so far no blue screens have come up. Let's see if this stays like this.

I have ran MalwareBytes before and there are no malware or viruses.

Thanks for all the responses

It's probably a dry joint inside the monitor. Gentle tapping or running a small paint brush over the soldered side of the board can be a crude but effective way of locating intermittent bad joints, assuming you are competent to deal with them when found.

BUT, dabbling around in CRT monitors is risky because they retain a high voltage charge for a very long time after switch off. The above "vibration testing" would be even more risky because it would need the power on. Not a good idea unless you have a fair amount of experience of this type of gear and know which parts to steer clear of.

Response #12 is the best way to go.

some other bloke...
