Question about Computer Monitors
Here is my solution:
Around the time it happened I did a few things to my computer.
I had been trying NOD, it ran out - so I removed the program. When I did that my McAfee was gone. So, I had to go through their web help to get it back. It didn't want to just download again through their site. I had put in a trial version of Microsoft Office 2007. After I got that all done my java wouldn't work for yahoo games. All this was within a few days of each other, even the darkening of the screen, over and over.
Tonight, I noticed on my newly added McAfee, has a registry cleaner. So I used it. I also went into my program file folders and saw that NOD was still in there - deleted it and a couple of other programs that I had tried once, but, thought they had been removed through the remove programs, in the control panel.
My Monitor screen works fine and I was going to spend 200 on a new monitor. Dell 3153FPC flat screen monitor. The screen turns on at start up then turns either off to a black screen or so dim that you can't see much but the power light stays green. It's connected to a Dell Dimension 2400 desktop to the onboard video. I've updated video drivers, reset every card and piece of hardware possible inside the desktop, switched out monitor connection chords to the power and pc as well. This started happening after getting a new verizon fios wireless modem but issue happens with that hardware disconnected as well. I've ran spybot, avg8 free and hijack this to no avail. This morning, my daughter goes to turn on the dumb thing and it's starting up like normal with a perfect screen. It's the first time in 2 days we've gotten a steady picture though without the monitor blacking out. Any help would be awesome. I'm done with this thing.
Try and find the LCD Screen diagram, there is a good chance that your capacitors are failing. The capacitors that will need to be replaced are the ones with either a bubbled top, you will notice these right away once you compare them to the rest. Or the ones where the LCD cable "from the monitor" meet the LCD circuit board. If this sounds to difficult its really not. you will a soldering gun and new capacitors. Radio Shack about .25Cents
