This point to problems with your either, drivers or video display card, nothing wrong with the monitor at this time (i hope).

1. go to this page and first follow they removal procedure (small program whihc will uninstall all ati drivers),
2. DO NOT YET INSTALL ANY DRIVERS, download ccleaner and run cleaner as well as registry cleaner
3. return to the page and install correct drivers and settings

this should solve your problem, if screen is still dimmed, fiddle bit with software (catalyst) and check if physical adjustments are ok on the monitor.

if everything else fail, check monitor against any other working computer, check another working monitor on your computer. that way you will pinpoint if your monitor or your videocard are at fault and act accordingly.

in my opinion it is just corrupted driver.

My 15" Powerbook G4 screen is half blank - it sometimes shows lines or has some blank spots but it's always gone away. This time it seems stuck. What to do?

Hi There,

If you can get your laptop connected to an external monitor it will do the main troubleshooting for you. With it connected and set to display on the monitor, the 2 options below are pretty solid;

1. If the monitor shows your nomal desktop display without any distortion or lines, etc, then you can be fairly certain your LCD screen panel on the laptop is just wearing out.

2. If the monitor shows exactly what the laptop does, i.e., same exact problems, then it means that the Video chip on the logic board is about to fail and you'll have todecide whether to repair or upgrade to a newer machine.

I wish you the best.

Monitor will not come online.

There are a few things I can think of that would cause this:
1) your monitor plug came loose from the motherboard
2) your backlight went out (they only have a certain life expectancy just like any lightbulb)
3) the inverter board powering the backlighting is bad.

Asus Monitor boes blank and comes back after power recycle

1. You can see images on the screen for a few minutes. That means there is nothing wrong with your computer.

2. When your screen goes blank, if you disconnect and then reconnect the monitor, it shows fine again for a few minutes before going blank (or dim) again. That means the problem is not with you video card.

3. It always shows the image after reconnection for exactly a few minutes before going blank again. yes? this means that there is nothing wrong with your cable.

Conclusion: Sorry, but you do not have many options. I bleieve that the problem is with your monitor that's going bad. Its far cheaper to get it replaced than to repair it.

My viewsonic vx2835wm has developed vertical pixilated lines

First thing you need to do is figure out where the problem is originating from. The monitor or computer?

When the lines appear, try the following:

1. Press the [1] on the monitor to bring up the menu. Do the lines appear on top of the menu?

2. Change the input. Do the lines appear on a different input?

If you answered "yes" to any of the question above, then your unit will need to be serviced.

If you answered "no" then test the monito on a different PC and verify if the problem follows the monitor. Also, try using a different video cable to rule out a bad cable.

Do the lines only appear when you are playing a game? Does it only appear on certain games? What resolution and refresh rate do you run the monitor at?

During use playing games the screen suddenly went black; i operate two monitors simultaneously and the cable works fine on the other monitor and both graphics cards are working, any ideas on how to fix it?

Hi, if you loose video on both monitors, that means there is a problem with the video cards. I guess you already tried to update the video drivers to the latest ones, so the only thing remaining is maybe an hardware problem with the video card. Try to play your game at a lower screen resolution and see what happens. Also, if you have a flatscreen monitor, try to lower the refresh rate at the default 65Hz or 70Hz. If after 30 min or so you still loose your image, make sure the monitors are still powered (usually the green light will turn orange awaiting a singal to open and turn green then) Some video cards got some issues with heat after a certain amount of time. Something about GNU but i'm not 100% positive. Anyway, in that case, you may have to replace your video card, god of waranty please be with us! good luck

Sumsung 930b goes dim,and flickers after about 3 min.

This sounds like the inverter has gone bad. If the bulb were bad only, you would see a faint image on the screen with a flashlight.

The problem is on this monitor, it will probably cost about $100 or so to take it to a shop to get it fixed, and that is nearing the cost of a new monitor.

If you are a little bit handy, and can disassemble the monitor, you can replace the inverter. The hardest thing about this, is getting the monitor faceplate open. Just use something firm and softer, such as a nylon spudger (this is something you can find online) or you can carefully use a thin scredriver. You just have to be careful, those cases are really tight.

Here is a good guide for general ideas on how it is done.

Samsung SyncMaster 17" LCD Blacks out

If you have a second monitor, you could use your computer until the monitor goes black... then plug in a replacement monitor. My guess is that one will display black too...

My gut feeling is that your VGA card is on the fritz... I'm not convinced it's your monitor. Do you have a replacement VGA card you can try? I'll bet that'll take care of the problem.
