Monitor shuts off but green light stays on
I know that this is going to sound crazy because it sounded crazy to me...but my monitor was doing the exact same thing and it was really getting to me, so I came up with an idea...somewhere in my brain I decided that turning down the brightness would help...so I turned the brightness down to about 57, and I have not had a problem since. I know all of these problems were posted a long time ago...but I hope that this helps someone out and saves them some money. I have a Dell LCD monitor and it fixed the problem right away.

Hi, I've got a dell optiplex 390 i7 to which I added a gtx780 and a 650w power unit. First happened on a loading screen of the motogp19 game, the image froze with green shade pixelization. Rebooted by itself started the game again all ok. Few days later went to play again, wouldnt even go into the game, froze immediately with green character like pixels all over the screen. Reboot, after that wouldn't start windows as it froze with the green stuff at the win10 loading screen. Now wont even turn on the monitor. Tried with dedicated gpu and integrated same deal. Im thinking motherboard or cpu perhaps? surely integrated would have it behave correctly? thanks
First thing to do is make sure all the RAM and other connections are good and try again. IF the issue persists, take things out, remove everything but the monitor and see if you can see the POST screen, then power it off and put in the RAM and try again, then do the hard disk etc, You may be able to narrow it down that way.

Pavilion dv7 starts up then shuts down
This sounds like you have a bad DC jack on your motherboard.
This is one of the most common problems with laptops and can be caused by jarring the DC plug in or hitting it into something or simply from normal use. As a result the pins on the DC jack become loose and consequently do not provide a charge to the laptop and battery. Wiggling the plug can make the loose pins contact sometimes which would explain why it "sometimes" works when you unplug it and plug it back in. Of course if this is the case then your battery is mostly out of power and that is why it powers off after a couple seconds. This repair costs between $150-300 from a professional repair shop and I would not recommend trying it yourself unless you've had experience soldering DC jacks
Another issue could be the CPU fan/heat skin if this is failing or the CPU is overheating the laptop will power off.
