Blinking monitor screen

I cannot shut off by computer because everytime I do (or if there a power outage) the computer comes on but the monitor just keeps blinking. I can see the desk top for a fraction of a second when it blinks, so I know the computer booted up ok. Usually it blinks for two or three days before it finally comes on. However, its been 4 days since a short power outage and it still won't work. Any idea whats going on?

This might be overly technical, but it sounds like the video card is on the blink (no pun intended). I'd power down the machine, open it up, pull the video card, re-seat it, and power the computer back on.
If it continues to do this, that card is probably toast.

Whenever there is a power outage, monitor wont power on, i have to wait for more than one hour. No LED light at all.


Your monitor probably detect a power surge when the power comes back and an internal protection is triggered to shut the power input. (breaker).

Try using a surge protector or a UPS.

Try a different video card or disconnect the one you have in your PC and use the VGA monitor connection on the motherboard. If it works your video card is gone.

My monitor screen is black and the yellow standby light is blinking. I can not get the light to stop blinking or get the monitor to show anything, but a black screen. What can I do to coerrect the problem?


mcdevito75 here, Press the SHIFT key, a screen should come up telling you too click on your user name, left lower side of screen. If this doesn"t work, press the yellow blinking light on the monitor see if picture comes back, then follow the directions. If this doesn"t work, shut computer down with switch on the computer itself. Hope this helps.

Monitor blinking after power outage


Check the power supply section first.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.
