Does your display work to start with when you turn your computer on (ie does it display the POST screen/Windows loading screen) and then go blank when the Windows login/desktop screen is displayed? If so it is likely that either the refresh or resolution rate has been pushed in excess of your monitor's capability. In which case you need to go into safe mode (pressing the F8 key several times when your first switch your computer on will bring up the loading menu where you can select Safe Mode) and change your display settings from there. If the monitor does not display at all during the loading sequence you may want to try it on another computer/try another monitor to see whether the problem lies with the monitor or the computer. Sometimes a problem can occur and appear to be linked to something else that has happened when it is simply co-incidence.

Lea Originally Answered: VGA or HDMI for my 1080p monitor?
Since you want to play back Blu-Ray discs, you need to use HDMI. Blu-ray Discs are copy-protected by something called HDCP, which is required if you want to play it at full 1080p HD. HDCP is High-bandwidth DIGITAL Content Protection, which by definition works only over a DIGITAL connection like HDMI. VGA is an ANALOG connection and does not support HDCP. Over a non-HDCP video link, Blu-Ray playback quality will be scaled down, and in some cases, won't even play back.
Lea Originally Answered: VGA or HDMI for my 1080p monitor?
VGA isn't a protected video path, so you will not be able to watch protected media, such as Blu Ray, unless the Blu Ray player is in the computer. As far as PC goes, I prefer VGA, but cannot really tell you pros/cons as I can't tell a difference. And seeing as how a computer can produce resolutions higher than *x1080, VGA is easily capable of HD video.

Is your video card appropriate on your computing gadget? If the computing gadget is previous you have some driving force conflicts. Ask on the shop if this is nice for you. provide them your computing gadget specifications. consistent with risk you have not got adequate RAM.

Garnet Originally Answered: Baby cards how to display them in creative way??
Another congratulations to you and your husband. If there is any way you can put them on your printer and reduce the size, make a montage of them and keep the originals in a place that nothing can get hold of them. By that I mean rodents or bugs as they will destroy a portion of the paper and maybe even have found a new home in the box. I hope that telling you that will not anger you I only want to let you know that they need protection. I don't know how many of the cards you do have but if you put them into a picture frame and hang them up you will have to find a way for it to fit into the decor of the room. What you can do is to find the most attractive card that was sent to you and put it at the top of the frame. Below that put the other cards over one another and just have the signatures showing. You will have to put something in writing at the top indicating all the signatures are for the ones that you received card from.
