Not sure I can tell you the exact nature of the problem with the info you have given. However, here are some trouble shooting tips. These are the things I would do to figure out what is causing the problem: 1. Hook up a monitor that works so that you can make some configuration changes to the graphics card. 2. Find out the native resolution of the LCD monitor that has the problem. Many 17 inch and 19 inch LCD's are 1280 X 1024 with a refresh rate of 60 Hertz. It is quite possible that your previous monitor settings are not compatable with your new LCD monitor. This is an easy fix. So go into your graphics control pannel and start by making sure that your refresh rate is set to 60 and the resolution to 1280 x 1024 or perhaps even lower like 800 x 600 but 1280 x 1024 is fairly standard with many LCD's. 3. With these new settings hook your LCD monitor up again and see if that works. 4. Still not working? ... Then there may be a problem with one of the hardware components in the monitor. When the monitor flashes are you for an instance seeing an actual picture? If so then the problem may be with your lamp controler. It's what controls the brightness etc. of your monitor. What you can try to do is lower the brightness. This sometimes restores the monitor to being useful. ie. you can use the monitor but only at a lower brightness. Setting the monitor to a lower brightenss may be a bit of problem if you can't see the brightness control which is often displayed on the screen itself through the menu function. If you are briefly seeing a picture as it goes through this 3-5 second cycle then hit the hardware menu button on your monitor. You should then see some sort of menu that you can control with the other buttons on your monitor. Find the brightness selection and lower it. You can lower it all the way to 0 and still have plenty of brightness to see a picture. NOte: you may have to make the change in brightness within one cycle of it going off and and on because each time it cycles it's quite possilbe that it resets itself. So in this case you would have to be really quick with the menu buttons on the monitor. It might take a couple of tries (or more) to get the squences of buttons you need to hit to get the brightness down. I had this problem once with a monitor and I was able to get the brightness down but only after many tries. I had to be supper fast with my menu selections. After that was done it worked flawlessly again. 5. Still not working? ... you are right you probably should have bought a new one LOL ... or next time when buying a used one make sure that you see it functioning correctly on a computer before buying it etc... Best of luck. Sincerely, Dean Dean Kenneth Robinson techinfo@ContinuousMix.com

i bought a new acer 19" . i will try to change the capacitors and see how it works. if not, i will try the power inverter option. but my new lcd itself cost me 100$ after rebate. so paying 70 pounds for an inverter is unwise. previous poster, I am sure it is problem with monitor and not the connector coz it doesn't do the self diagnosis. thanks for all the responses so far.

I assume the monitor is still plugged into the back of the system? If so, do you get any beeps which can denote error codes for the system? Put your ear to the monitor, any strange whinning noise?

You have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitorswill blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts calledcapacitors overheating in the confined space of he monitor. If you aregood at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix he problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htmYou can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictues and your monitor should workfine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and -connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one thesame way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.
