Was watching a movie on my computer last night and all the sudden the screen started turning off and on with no picture when it was on. Has the monitor gone bad or is it a video card issue?

Try replacing your monitor, if doesn't work try to replace your video card.Maybe there's a Driver conflict related issues. try upgrading your video card driver also.

The simple way to check if this is a Monitor issue or not, you can unplug the monitor from the Computer and connect it only to the power outlet. If it gives you a "No signal" screen or goes through any sort of other Self test, Your monitor is fine. You can also check if the power led is blinking Amber or Green. A blinking Amber LED while the monitor is only connected to the Wall outlet indicates the monitor is faulty.

Unplug everything from the wall-outlets, and from other devices, and then reconnect all the wires.

Also, try a different TV (some newer computer-screens have "TV-input" and/or "HDMI-input" sockets).

I have a Denon receiver, had it for a couple years now and has worked perfectly. Last week I was watching a movie and all of a sudden my receiver shut off and it blinked a red ring of death. I let it rest...


Did you recently move any speakers around or any items near the speaker wire connections?
It sounds like you may have a speaker wire shorting which is causing the receiver to go into "auto protect" mode. Check all of the speaker wire connections on the back of the receiver and at all of the speakers to make sure the wires are not touching or close enough to possibly touch.
