With dvi monitor goes black for 2 second then comes back intermittently

Monitor goes black for 2 second then picture comes back

Ok what happens is as the title say my 20" monitor goes black for about 2 seconds then the picture comes back comes back, the monitor power light does not go out so i know its not the monitor going of and on. It happens while watching movies and just doing every day normal work on the systems. This is happening on 2 system which are being built for friends.

System 1

20" ACER AL2002W 1680 x 1050
Asus M2A - VM not the HDMI version
AMD Athlon 64 x2 4200+ (65W) Dual core socket AM2 2.2Ghz, 512 KB x2 L2 cache
System 1- OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 800mhz Platinum XTC Revision 2 2 x 1GB sticks
Seagate Barracuda 320GB SATA HD 7200rpm
LG GH20NS10 Black SATA DVD-Writer 20x
350 watt power supply 20/24pins Model number IP-S350AQ2-0 made by POWER MAN

System 2

20" ACER AL2002W LCD 1680 x 1050 60 Hz
Asus M2A - VM X1250 onboard graphics not the HDMI version
AMD Athlon 64 x2 4200+ (65W) Dual core socket AM2 2.2Ghz, 512 KB x2 L2 cache
Mushkin HP2-6400 DDR2-800 High Performance Series 2 x 1GB sticks
Seagate Barracuda 320GB SATA HD 7200rpm
Hauppauge WinTV GO-PLus NTSC 44981 REV E199 TV tuner (the one with the mushkin ram)
LG GH20NS10 Black SATA DVD-Writer 20x
350 watt power supply 20/24pins Model number IP-S350AQ2-0 made by POWER MAN

- Increased the voltage to the ram to 2.1 volts that solved the ram problems i had.
(would crash everytime i ran memtest86 or any memory test software)
- Replaced the motherboard on one system to eliminate a problem with the on board video or the dvi port.
- Used different ram on one system to make sure it wasn't the ocz ram which is why one has mushkin.
Changed to the vga cable to see if that solved the problem checking now by watch 2 movies one at a time.
Next thing i will do is change to a 19" to see if it happens there.

I want to have both dvi and vga working fine so my friend can use the dvi for the computer, and the vga for here laptop.

Any help would be appreciated

To what I understand. Dvi and vga is only applicable to a system or CPU. Sorry if I am wrong.

Could be a hardware issue, If the screen has a power light, does it change coulor (often green to orange) when the problem happens. If so its the screen inst getting any signal. It could be a connector or cable.

Screen goes black for 4-5 seconds then comes back on


Go into the Catalyst Control Center and check "reduce DVI frequency on high-res displays" and leave "Alternate DVI operational mode" checked. This should resolve it. It is because of your video card that this problem is occurring. Let me know if you need additional help or if this doesn't fix your problem. Good Luck.

Samsung monitor goes black


If the monitor works on the other computer than the first computer is not outputting a signal and the monitor is going to sleep. Alternately the monitor could have a power issue and it will just shut off after a few seconds. I've seen that happen.

When I first turn on the monitor I get a picture for about 1 second then it goes black. If I turn the monitor off then right back on I get the same 1 second pic then black. A different monitor works fine...


Make sure you are on the correct video setting on the monitor using the menu button.
If you are hooked up to dvi you need to make sure the monitor is on the dvi component. VGA same thing.


Hope this helps

Screen goes black after 2 seconds


This could be one of two problems, the light in your monitor has a loose cable, or the light is dying. I have seen cold cathode lights that are about 10-15$ to buy and many instructions on putting them in yourself.

Solution 2, your cable is loose on the back of the monitor. Make sure you have the screws tightened on either side of the vga or dvi cable, both on the back of your monitor and on the back of your computer or laptop.

Planar PE191M monitor display will not stay on


iv come across this before sometimes people can see that the monitor is actually working but the light has gone out id say bad capacitors that are breaking down. if you want to DIY it take it apart and find the light pcb usually built on the power supply pcb and look for bulging or swolen capacitors this happens alot in my opinion. if you can DIY it get the same caps or same value but better ones. I might be wrong but worth a look

Monitor blacking out intermittently


Monitor going black after a few seconds can be causd by a faulty power supply or inverter. Some monitors have both as one unit.
Sometimes it is basic failed capacitors, After that then I would look at transistors.
The average monitor from 17 to 20 and sometimes the 22s have usually 4 bulbs in them. One bad bulb will also cause the inverter to not fire up.
Bad bulbs usually show pinkish tint, or flickering or are dark at center top or bottom of the display.
