2 days ago I turned off my computer and my monitor was working fine when I turned it off too. When I turned it on this morning half of my monitor was dim and the other was twice as dim as the other half. I have gone through sever computer resets and auto adjusts on the monitor as well as attemtping to fix it through control panel but have met with negative results.

Re: half a monitor
This could be a backlight problem- Dont know about a fix though I guess some one may repair them[new tube[s]] I guess what ever the labour plus parts will be well on the way to a new one. How old is it by the way - any warranty left?

The monitor can be repaired - by replacing one or both the fluorescent tube and inverter. You can have the work done for you - or you can attempt it yourself. Lamp prices vary based on size - but most hover in the $10 range. Inverters can vary in price too - but run more than lamps for the most part. There are numerous suppliers for these parts such as this and instructions about how to do it such as this.
first off check all the chords and make sure the monitor is turned on. as you have probably done this try to use a different monitor. borrow one for an hour or something. if the second monitor is black as well it is your video card in your PC and you will have to replace it. If it boots as normal that of coarse means that your Xerox monitor is broken and needs to be replaced/repaired. Hope your warranty is still good. Good Luck.
Yeah, I have this exact same problem, except my mom slammed my laptop shut in frustration around half an hour ago, so that's why it's like this. The right half of my screen is black with two colorful stripes (mostly white), but the left half is visible. I've researched a bit and found out that this is because the LCD in your monitor has burnt out, and since you don't have a monitor to attach, the only thing you can do is to go to where you bought the laptop and either get it fixed for free or return it for a brand new one (if your warranty still stands). If not, you might as well get a new laptop. I think my warranty has expired, so I'll get a new laptop, hopefully.
Have you tried any other monitor connected to your computer since your current problem? Check your connections, make sure your VGA cable/DVI cable are in good condition. If none of that works try to RMA it to sceptre if your still within the 1 year period.
If you know how to open it up and get to the power supply you will find three capacitors 2-820uf and 1-330 @ 25vdc 105o.they will have puffed up tops replace them. FYI the monitor has a 3 year warranty.
I'm not sure if this will solve the problem but it is worth a shot. I have a 19" Proview that does the same thing only in green. I finally chased the problem to the VGA cable. When I move the cable around at the back of the computer, it straightens out and works fine. If your monitor has a changeable VGA cable try that. If it is like mine where it has a fixed VGA cable, you might be able to have someone replace the cable. If that does not solve the problem, it is probably the inverter board or something inside the unit.
if the monitor works fine on your laptop, the problem definitely is at the computer, possibly with the video card (if it is using one). it could have loose connection, or parts might have damages. it seems the problem is intermittent so electronic component of the video card could have parts partially damages or leaky components. if your still using the motherboards built in video out put, try installing a new video card.
Same thing is happening with my emchine as well. Mine is a T6412 series machine. I boought this machine a year and a half ago. Suddenly one morning the monitor started flickering. At first I thought may be some problem with the cables. I tried with different cables. Same problem. then I thought maybe my monitor has gone bad. So I went and bought a new Samsung monitor. Even with this new monitor the problem remained. So, I am assumng now that the problem is with my computer and not the monitor. Can someone please help. I do not usually come to this site. Can you please email me your solutions and help directly to email@example.com. Thank you so much for your help.
