Question about Gateway EV910B Monitor
My 19" seven year old monitor has recently started having the following problem and it is getting progressivly more frequent. It will be working fine, then.....with a clicking sound, the screen expands and darkens a little. At this point I can still click on objects and move the screen. After about 30 seconds (which seems to be getting longer) the monitor turns off, then immediately turns back on and works normally again, often for the remainder of the day, but just as often it will repeat in the same manner. When the screen expands I have begun giving the top corner of the monitor a sharp smack with the palm of my hand and this will always made it work OK again. Other than that it's a great working monitor. Any help or sugestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Canslim, when one of the boards heats up inside it fails, the task is then handed to the backup chipset to get you through your session. The monitor is nicely letting you know its time is almost up. You could take it in to have the boards tested to see which one(s) is failing, but that would cost more than a new one. Probably not much different than you were thinking. Hope it helped. Tim
