Question about Computer Monitors

1 Answer

Screen becomes unviewable

I plugged it up, and when it turns on, the picture is fine, but after a few minutes the picture starts to distort, the picture starts to get blurry as everything on my desktop display starts to move as if it was rippling like motion in water, and then the display is not readable at all. I tried to adjust the contrast and the brightness and this does not stop the movement, or help at all.

Re: Screen becomes unviewable

Sounds like a problem with the graphics card or on board video. Please state which one you have and type. The last option is a bad monitor. Try Degaussing it first on the monitors menu selections. If you use a graphics card, you can disable it and try the on board one to see if it helps. If you need further assistance, please ask. I can guide you through all the steps.

No screen after 5 minutes


The picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few minutes and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

I would advice you replace the picture board on the monitor, this should cost you between $65 - $85.

Take care.

Monitor starts, about three minutes no picture but


It is the picture picture board on your monitor that is malfunctioning, since the power led or button is on, but the display screen goes blank after few seconds, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer within your vicinity or any service center to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

Asus Monitor boes blank and comes back after power recycle

1. You can see images on the screen for a few minutes. That means there is nothing wrong with your computer.

2. When your screen goes blank, if you disconnect and then reconnect the monitor, it shows fine again for a few minutes before going blank (or dim) again. That means the problem is not with you video card.

3. It always shows the image after reconnection for exactly a few minutes before going blank again. yes? this means that there is nothing wrong with your cable.

Conclusion: Sorry, but you do not have many options. I bleieve that the problem is with your monitor that's going bad. Its far cheaper to get it replaced than to repair it.

Screen becomes increasingly white

Your PC is overdriving the monitor and it is protecting itself from harm.
Start in SAFE mode (press F8 wile booting) and SAFE mode to see if it works in Windows DEFAULT setting. Then Reboot and readjust to something sensible (1280*1600, 32bit, 60Hz)

My guess is that MSoft pushed a patch or SP to your box and IT replaced the dll your monitor was using.

Goto mfg and DL and reinstall the correct drivers again

Good Luck!

Monitor picture is distorted

This is an indication your monitor is on the way to failure: You can do a "degauss' which is usually powering the monitor off and then pushing the degauss button in and holding it while powering the monitor back on.

Sporadic Discoloration & Distortion

Most of these monitors have a 3 year warrantly. Give them a ring and see if they will exchange it. No harm in trying!

Screen patch

Sometimes lcds will turn a yellow/brown/redish colour if they overheat. normally this will not cause long term damage to the screen but it is not good for it, try letting the monitor cool then using commpressed air to get rid of dust or attach a small fan to see if it helps. This may not fix the problem but should confirm if thats what it is.
