Monitor goes blank after random time sometimes

Monitor goes blank after random times sometimes short while sometimes hours. The computer is still running. Reset button will not restart. The only way to restore is to shut down computer by holding start button in and then restart. It will be OK for a while, again sometimes minutes sometimes hours. Could it be the graphics card?

No i guess itz not the graphics card..itz probably causing from faulty or defective ram or main/mother board..

however, proceed to verify with the below stated steps, only if u r a professional..

DO IT ONLY IF U R A PROFESSIONAL..
..plz do check the following as in order:..
the Hardware part:..
1) check mains/power supply..the fuse, switch, wiring n associated circuitry..

2) [in case of desktop] the smps itself may b defective/faulty..check the outputs of smps viz. 0v (black~ground); +12v(yellow); +5v (red, green~ps-on, violet~pg& grey~sb); -12v (blue);-5v(white); +3.3v(orange)..
check the battery n adapter [main power], in case of laptops..
replace with a standby n see..

3) unplug mains supply..pick open/remove the cmos battery..check (above +3v)..resit..

4) open the cpu n see if heat is generated..if not..replace the cpu n see..

5) open the CPU Heat-Sink with fan out of the socket..put some "Heat Sink Compound" (available in local electronics chip level spare market)between the cpu/processor and the CPU Heat Sink *** fan..resit/fit it tightly in position..

6) on main/mother board..see with a debug card for mb error..may b short..look for defective capacitors(espabove1000mfd)/mosfets..go through the mb's south bridge n the circuit lie around atx connector..the crystal clock generator (if cpu isn't heating up)..
replace with a standby n see..

7)see if the ram(s) is loose/faulty..open clean/remove carbon & or oxide formed on the teeth with an eraser n resit it..or replace with a standby n see..

8)remove/clean dust neatly..dust is non-uniform in nature n may cause jam/short circuitry/excess resistance n many more..resulting an increase in heat..

plz give priority to steps(2, 5 & 6)..

if u r not a professional, always better to seek advise from ur system admin/vendor....

Lg w1934-bn blank screen after start up, power light on . same problem occurs on different computers used.


Reason 1: Wetness The number one reason why computer monitors go blank is - wetness. Believe it or not, when your computer monitor is exposed to humid air, sometimes water can condense and accumulate in the monitor. This causes the monitor to malfunction and go blank. I've had this happen to my desktop PC at least three times before. What you need to do is to leave the monitor alone for some time and allow the water to evaporate. That usually solves the problem.

Reason 2: Faulty Graphics Card The next reason why your computer monitor goes black is due to a faulty graphics card. The best way to detect this kind of problem is to connect up a new monitor to your PC, then check if you have a blank screen. If you continue to have a blank screen, then it's likely your video card is faulty.

Reason 3: Faulty RAM This one is less obvious and less common, but it can happen. You might sometimes get bad RAM modules which prevent your PC from booting up even to the basic BIOS startup screen. To detect this kind of problem is more troublesome, you might need to remove those RAM modules and insert them into another computer.

Reason 4: Loose Connections Another reason why your monitor goes blank is due to loose connections. The connection from the monitor to the mains is usually a culprit, as is the connection between the monitor and the video card. Check those connections before you declare your computer monitor as faulty.

Reason 5: A Short Circuit In The Motherboard And the final reason why your computer monitor goes blank? It's possibly because of a short circuit in the motherboard. This is the most undesirable outcome of course, as you might have to replace your entire motherboard. However, it's possible that this can happen - so keep your fingers crossed and hope it doesn't happen to you.
i think this will help.
please rate my solution.
have a nice day.

Monitor goes blank after being on for a little bit.


A COMPONET INSIDE THE MONITOR IS SHORTING OUT TO THE FRAME OF THE MONITOR, OR YOU MAY HAVE A CAPICITOR GOING BAD INSIDE THE MONITOR, SO TO THE TV SHOP TO GET REPAIRED OR BUY A NEW ONE.

Blank screen


if this goes blank randomly, it could be that there's something wrong with the monitor or its starting to die on you. if there's a factory reset button on the monitor, you can try doing it and if that is still not going to resolve the problem then just get it replaced if its still under warranty and if not then get another one.
