HP monitor requires manual restart

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hi All,

I owned a HP w1907 lcd monitor. It comes as a package with HP Slim line S3520d Desktop Computer.

I have been using this for the past 2 years, and all is working properly.

Except yesterday when it was running so weird. Normally, whenever I turned the computer off or turned it on again, I don't need to press the monitor's power button at the top of it because it will automatically open when I open my CPU. But since yesterday, I have to run this process again and again. I don't know if this has settings for the monitor, for all I know this is a plug and play hardware that doesn't need any software to run.

The monitor specs are:

Model: HP w1907

Size: 19"

Type: Widescreen LCD Monitor with built-in speakers

I searched on Hewlett Packard website, but there is no available software for this. I want to know how I can change it from my original settings. The CPU specs are:

Processor: Core 2 Duo E4700

Chipset: NVIDIA Geforce 7100

Motherboard: Irvine


Hard Drive: 320GB SATA

Operating System: Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3

Please help me. I am also experiencing a horizontal green lines appearing sometimes.

Then after doing a reboot, the lines will be gone.

Can anybody state the cause of this problem and what can I do to fix this?

Hello Kyleigh Fisher,


I'm afraid to tell you that this a hardware based problem and I can help you out a little bit. At first you have to check some things.


Check out you monitor power cable


Check your Monitor adapter (If Exists)


Check your VGA cable (very Important)


Though your monitor have the capability of plug and play, sometimes windows failed to adjust it, so you can install it.


If there remain problems, please contact to your provider.


This is all I can suggest
