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.

L32W961 screen goes black then comes back on. later when video comes back sound does not


That is definitely a manufacturers error.
If it has been less than a year since you purchased it i would contact them.
They will send you to a service center. If it cant be fixed they will replace your tv.
It is all covered by them.
If it is past a year its honestly not worth fixing it,
You can find name brand 32 inch tv's for less than 250
while fixing it would cost around 150.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


Sounds like either there is a bad connection from the computer to the monitor, or the monitor has a faulty power regulator, causing the monitor to overheat prematurely, and shut off.

I am using a lenovo all in one ideacentre computer. The screen goes black for a few seconds then comes back


The screen goes black then comes back. When it comes back are you able to use the computer without any problems? When does this happen? Most times during the boot process the screen will fade in and out.

If this is not happening when you boot the system it's possible that your lcd screen might be going bad so keep an eye on it.

Monitor problem


You need to figure out if the monitor is faulty or if it is due to the power in your house (not likely) or the fault of the computer.
  1. Try the monitor on other power jacks.
  2. Try the computer on other monitors and see if you get the same response.
If it seems to just be the monitor then you will most likely have to have it serviced or replaced. Is it still under warranty?

My Sony comes on then both sound and picture goes black.


After being on a little while, the screen goes black (no audio as well) for 20 to 30 seconds. Green light stays on. Then, picture comes back on and takes a couple of seconds to get up to full brightness. About 5 seconds or so after the video comes back, the audio returns.

Until this morning, has only happened a couple of times a day, now happening more often. About 3 times in last 20 minutes.

KDF-E55A20 is about 3 years old.
