  1. PC will not automatically boot up. Message on monitor "Monitor locked in safe mode". Tried an alternative monitor but with same result.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Can you boot into safe mode?

    If so try lowering your resolution and refresh rates.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Are you saying that your computer wont post at all? I.E no beeps bios screen etc.

    If so then this is obviously some kind of hardware failure.

    Open up your computer, and check that all cables/card/connections are in place.

    Can you tell us when the problem first started, and what you were doing with the computer at the time.

    As much background info as possible will help us to help you.

    Your full system specs will also help. If you don`t know your full system specs. Just click on the first link in my signature.

    Regards Howard :)
