Question about ViewSonic VX922 19" Monitor Flat Panel
Hi, i have a problem. Just turned my old computer which i left aside for a few months back due to a new computer i just rigged. When i turned it on, everything seems ok, bios beeps fine, first menu on screen ie: Detecting drives, Total ram calculations blablabla.. and then just a few seconds the screen went black and theres this one bright line (similar to looking under a magnifying glass under the sun kinda glow), bout an inch length on the bottom of the screen and it stays that way till i turned the whole pc off. When i did a cold boot, it runs again but this time with just a black screen. Normally on bootup, my monitor led will turn yellow and stays solid. But this time, the led keeps glowing yellow and then it dims and then glows bright again continuously like i suppose if you're watching superman the movie (the 80s version) and when the kryptonite glows bright and dim, sorta glow. No image on monitor though. Any solutions as to why this happens? My computer still runs normal but there just isnt any image on screen. Just that weird monitor led glow.
Looks like the Video card, or Video chip has bought the farm
Try hooking up to another monitor to confirm where the problem is.

Tips for a great answer:
Hi hope your monitor issue has resolved. I would suspect the
problem is a hardware issue then a software setting. Since the monitor is over
three and half years old, if your monitor is a LCD with CCFL back light and had
been used almost every day, there may be 3 possible hardware issues. First is
the internal power supply, that can go wrong due to heating problem within the
monitor, this problem usually cause the monitor to display poor quality picture
and may show interference lines on screen prior failure. Secondly, it may be
the inverter that drives the back light, which may fail due to the safety
circuit kicks in, because it involves with high voltages. Thirdly it may be the
backlight itself, which is like most compact CCFL energy saving lamps that
flickers or turn itself off when it reaches the end of its service life. This problem
usually caused the monitor to show redness or yellowness images prior failure.
All of these can be resolved by qualified electronic repairers, all the best.
