Question about BenQ FP731 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Screen blacks out.

Just recently, I've been using my computer as normal, and then all of a sudden while I'm doing something the screen randomly blacks out. I have to turn off the monitor, then turn it back on again and it displays at normal, but it keep blacking out. Any chance I could get some help on this issue?

Re: Screen blacks out.

I had a similar problem with a television. Basically when the element gets to hot it shuts itself down. I believe your monitor is overheating and I dont think there is much you can do besides have some of the guts replaced or pitch it....sorry.

Hello, my lg flat screen monitor appears to work at start of computer powerup, since I can the "dell..." etc. but then after 3 seconds fades to black. When I click on the buttons on the side...

Since the monitor is working, it sounds like the computer is not booting up. See if you can get it to boot up by pressing F8 during the DELL screen (before it fades to black) (you may have to press F8 repeatedbly)... this should take you to a screen for Windows startup options. Choose Safe Mode and see if you computer starts up completely. If it will start up into safe mode, then there is a driver or something that is preventing windows from starting normally. Have you added any software or hardware recently before this happened? If so, while in safe mode remove any software that you've recently added and see if you can start Windows normally after that. If not, right click on the My Computer icon (either on the desktop or in the Start menu) and choose Manage from the pop-up menu. Click on Event Viewer. Depending on whether you are using Windows XP or Vista or 7, the following will differ slightly.

Under Event viewer, look into the System and Application logs for errors to see what is causing the computer to stop loading. Let me know what you find so I can help you troubleshoot further.

Hello I wonder if you can help. When we switch

Had a similar problem like this several times. Try choosing safe mode. Safe mode will load the required drivers. After safe mode finishes the loading process, restart your computer and choose to start windows normally. The problem you mention usually happens when the computer is turned off without using normal shut down procedures. Also happens when you have a sudden power outage.
