Question about Dell P780 17" CRT Monitor
My 'Dell P780 17" CRT Monitor(3 yrs old)' fads away gradually and goes blank completely for about 1 minute and comes back. This is happening frequently. I cleaned up the nVIDIA GeForce Graphics Video card (w/ fan) that gets hot quickly. Is there anything to clean inside the monitor. Is this due to Monitor or Video Card or both?. Please advise.
That sounds like a monitor issue, not a video card. Gradual fading means components within the monitor are wearing out. However, I strongly advice against attempting repairs. CRT monitors hold a strong electrical charge. People have been injured and even killed by attempting to work on them without proper tools and training. A 17" CRT monitor is too cheap to be worth the risk (you can often get them used... I got mine for $20 at Goodwill).
