Check your video card connections. make sure that your monitor cable is attached firmly in place.Also make sure the video card is fully pushed into the slot on the motherboard. Sometimes because of heat the card can pop out of the slot. Sometime this is just enough to barely work and then stop.

My E19T6W 19" LCD monitor


Sorry, I have no solution, just thought you might like to know that I am having the exact same problem.
The only thing I can add is that it appeared after a night that my computer was set to do a weekly upload of Microsoft, anti-virus and anti-spyware updates. Also, that night we had some electrical storms. The menu pops up in the bottom right corner at very erratic intervals and sometimes just flashes, while other times stays on for minutes. It is driving me crazy!
I have tried updating the monitor driver and the video card using the "Device Manager" icon found in the "Control Panel". No luck. I have also ran anti-virus and anti-spyware scans and also used AVG to scan and fix registry errors. No luck.
I am open to suggestions.
Thanks

Monitor turns on for about ten seconds then the


something like this happened to my comp. once, and it was because my cpu wasn't properly cooled. the fan on the cpu had been disconnected from the power supply. if a cpu gets too heated it can cause a lock-up or reboot, and can eventually damage the cpu. so, that would be the first thing i would check. a virus is also a possibility. if you have virus software try booting from the virus software cd-rom. if you can get into your bios setup by pressing 'delete' during the boot process you can change the boot sequence under one of the options there. put the cd-rom as your first boot device. i use norton's anti-virus, and it allows a scan for viruses before going to the 'desktop'.
of course, if you already have a functional anti-virus program it probably would have caught it without doing any of those steps.
good luck. keep us up-to-date on your situation.

VIRUS : backdoor trojan


If you are saying that Norton cannot delete the virus, then you may need to take your computer in to a local computer repair shop.

If you are simply weary to delete the virus, I will quell your worry by saying; go ahead and delete the virus.

I hooked up my new acer p191w to my dell laptop 1525.HELP!


Not sure what the problem is, but I would suggest pressing the Fn+F5? There is a function key that toggles from dual screen, just the laptop screen or just the monitor. Hope that helps..

G'luck

Sounds like will need component-level electronic troubleshooting, probably in the power supply section.
