Question about IBM P 202 21" CRT Monitor
Today, one of my HP L2045w screens (The one about 4 years old) just started flickering wildly and basically "vibrating up and down" and then turned off. I could not access the reset function since the monitor would not stay on.
I have eliminated the cords at the issue, both the monitor cords and the power cords since when I swap them out, the problems stays with that monitor and does not transfer to the other monitor.
I have UltraMon on the system to allow the use of two monitors and until today both HP monitors (both the same)were working perfectly. Nothing had been downloaded. I can still send an Excel or Word file across from the other monitor, and you can see it on the malfunctioning screen, but it just jumps up and down and turns off.
I had another monitor, and I swaped it out for the malfunctioning one, and it works well, but I much prefer the HP monitor. Any thoughts about how to "reset it" without having access to the on screen tools? If not, is it worth fixing?

This problem is most likely to be caused by a bent or broken pin on the CRT video cable at the VGA connector, OR, this could also be caused by a damaged VGA connector on the back of the laptop. If neither VGA connector is at fault, the problem could be caused a damaged (kinked) CRT data cable, or internal damage to the VGA connector on the back of the laptop, though I suspect the problem is more likely to be external, and you probably won't have to disassemble the laptop to locate the culprit...

This issue may occur if the signal from the video adapter exceeds the scan range of the monitor. The video adapter setting for updating the screen (the refresh rate) is incompatible with the monitor.
you should reinstall your video drivers in safe mode.
To restart in safe mode repeatedly press the F8 key during the computer startup. This will bring a menu where you'll be able to choose safe mode.

SOURCE: Many screens on one monitor!
Your monitor is malfunctioning and requires servicing. Unfortunately there is no software solution, and no monitor adjustment buttons will control this problem. Due to the high cost of replacement parts and service technicians, it may be more cost effective to buy a new LCD monitor. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news :(

This seems to be a common problem with these monitors. Have a look very closely and see if you can still see something there. From there, either send it to get repaired, or, if you are handy with a soldering iron, open it up and replace the 4 main capacitors (at least one of them will be "popped", but it is handy to replace them all.
In order to open the monitor, you will need to remove the stand, and make sure you get all of the screws out before attacking it with a screwdriver.
I have 5 IBM monitors at work with the same problem, and opening them up has shown the popped capacitors.
Again, only recommended if you know what you are doing. Screwing it up will leave you with nothing.
