Is youyr monitor a "flat screen" i.e. LCD or is it a CRT. (Flat screens are about 2 - 3 inches thick (or deep), and CRT monitors are about 12 - 18" deep (front to back).

If it's a CRT chances are that there's plroblem with it, and it's shutting off BECAUSE of the problem. EITHER way there wouldn't be a setting to make the monitor shut off after 3 seconds... what would be the point?

Get back to me, but I think your monitor is the problem.

    Flatscreens will "turn off," afer a VERY short time is they don't signals from the computer. Have you checked to see that the connections are tight? Usually there a wire that plugs into the back of the flatscreen, goes to the computer and as plugged in to the computer. Either end of this cable needs to be fully and squarely plugged in.



    Again there would NOT be a setting on the flat screen that would cause this behavior, HOWEVER - and you could check THIS out: some flatscreens have MANY inputs and a button that will bring you to a sreen (or a buttoin that you repeatedly push) which will allow you to CHOOSE which input your useing.



    If your monitor is not set to "computer," as far as the flat screen is "concerned," it's not connected to ANYTHING, and probably will turn itself off.



    If the monitor DOES display computer info for the short time you mention, the flat screen probably has an internal problem and need to be repaired or replaced.

Hi we have a compaq 7550 screen that when turned on has a red sheen over the whole screen. Any solutions or is it ready to throw away. thanks


You may try messing with the settings on the monitor. The menu buttons are usually on the front. Try to find something that deals with the color tones of the monitor. If messing with these settings doesn't fix your problem, then unfortunately, it is probably time to throw it out.

My moniter says out of range.


Video Card has a resolution setting higher than the monitor supports. The below works with XP, may work for Vista as well

Start the PC
Start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see a menu
Choose Safe Mode (make sure not to pick safe mode command prompt)
Once you see the desktop, right click on an empty area on the desktop, then choose properties

Find the resolution property in this program and bring it down. 1024 x 768 should be ok

Click on OK til the window disappears

Reboot

Monitor blinks no image


first you need to isolate the problem to either the computer or the moniter. I would sugust that you hook a know good moniter to the compter and go from there. If the other moniter works then you have a moniter issue aif not chek the video card in the computer. good luck

My Acer LCD AL1711 went off after seconds of turning on.


This monitor has "back lights" that are essentially like flourescent lights. These are high voltage lights and can easily fail. since you are getting some light initially, I would suspect a defective part that heats up a bit right away and then fails. I would try to replace the entire backlight board. This is the small board on the side (usually).

My Monitor flickers when computer starts


If "messing" around with the CRT connection on the back of the monitor causes it to work then I suspect there is some physical damage to. Specifically what connection/connector did you mess with? I can give you more advice if you give me more to go on.
