Question about BenQ FP71E 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor goes blurry, colours/pixels start shaking across screen

This problem started about a month ago. It tends to happen when the monitor is idle for even a few minutes. The best way to describe it is "Monitor goes blurry with colours/pixels start shaking across screen". Best comparison is like when an old TV starts getting grainy when it loses signal. Monitor is only 18 months old. When this problem happens I have to restart my whole system. Any help would be appreciated! :) Thanks.

Do you have your screen saver enabled, i so turn it off and se if it still does it. Secondly boot your pc in safe mode(pressing F8) on boot up and select start windows in safe mode. See if the monitor still does it, if so a monitor fault or loose/faulty vga lead. If it is ok then your graphics driver may be corrupt and need re installing.

I have an HP L2208w monitor which has been ok for the last two years. Suddenly, it started to display patches of different colours. Also vertical and horizontal colours appear across some pf these patches....


hi steven_katas

Im thinking that this maybe a LCD panel problem (dead pixels) already. some LCD panels last for 2-3 years depending on usage. even if you haven't dropped it or anything the LCD panel's pixels ten to give way slowly or die down since these pixels are like bulbs. here's what you can do. Try connecting a different cable from your monitor to your computer if the issue is still the same, try connecting a different computer or maybe a laptop to your monitor just to eliminate the probability that it can be a cable or a video card problem.
If you have already connected a new computer say a laptop and it is still the same it might already be a hardware problem with your monitor and might need you to bring it to the service center for repair.

Hope this helps please let me know

Hi, 1997 monte carlo that idles, but cuts out when put in gear, or at times while driving. 3.1 engine. 184,000 mi.


I don't have an answer for you, but I do have a similar or maybe even the same issue with mine. It usually starts up fine, and idles and runs fine when first started, however a few blocks or a few miles down the road it starts to cut out on me, sometimes dying completely... throwing it into neutral and pumping the gas usually will keep it running. This has gone on for a couple of months. When it does die, It normally will restart after sitting for a few minutes. Then a couple of weeks ago it died on me (normally this happens when slowing down and coming to a stop,) and would not restart even after a 1/2 hr, I had to have it towed. I periodically attempted to start it for over a week, it would turn over, but nothing more...then someone suggested that I disconnect the auto start box...It started right up. However, it still continues to cut out when slowing or stopping unless thrown into neutral and pumping the gas. It seems to run better on the open highway, than it does in town with all the slower speed and stop n go. I bought this car used about 6 mos. ago, and considering it's age and the 135K miles on it, I don't want to put any more money into it. I just read there is a recall on this vehicle for the fuel pump and additionally the fuel assembly, I'm not sure if this would be the answer to the whole problem or not.

Gateway monitor pixels discolored on monitor


This happens when you keep a device close to monitor which uses wireless technology or signal(Cell phone, wireless router or modem). Also try to make distance between speakers and monitor, as speakers contains magnets and that causes such issues.

Screen goes pink and green starting with a few pixels


Best thing to do, try a different known working monitor to hook up to the computer. If the screen works and doesn't change colors then you know its the original monitor that is bad.

If you hook up the known working monitor and the same problem happens then you know its the video card that is bad and the video card would have to be replaced.
