    It sounds like it... The graphics card could draw more current from the PSU and be killing the volts.



    When you say the desktop is running, are you turning the computer off/on or just the monitor?

It is likely your graphics card failing. If it is a plug-in type you can remove it and replace with another. However you may have an onboard video card as well as a plug in type, if so you could remove the plug-in card and that would automatically enable the onboard video. Look to see if you have two monitor ports on your computer to verify this. The onboard may have a blanking cap over it. Details in the picture.my desktop s running but - d0b59c4.jpg

Why does screen go black after a few seconds


Hope this helps.... Your monitor has an inverter issue. You know it's an inverter problem when:
1. Your monitor starts normally and displays the startup/desktop screen for a while.
2. Then it suddenly goes off, leaving a blank (black) screen or a very dim display.

To fix this black screen problem, change the inverter board (based on your monitor brand).

My AOC screen goes black after about a few seconds after booting.


Hello,

The picture board on your monitor is bad, since it goes off after few seconds and the power led or button is on, it means the picture board of your monitor has developed fault.

The best thing for you to do now is to take the monitor to a local repairer or service center within your vicinity to help with the replacement of the picture board because the fault is not something you can fix yourself, in order not to complicate issues.

Take care.

I have a Dell SE198WFP Flat Panel Monitor, screen goes black?


The LCd panel may be damaged and will cause this problem.

Another thing is overheating of the GPU.

The LCD signal receiver can be goign on you.

The is also the possibility of a faulty inverter.

Only thing to do is service or replace. Test the unit on another computer, if you don't get the issue there then you know its a problem with the PC.

Power is on but screen is black


Hi, you gave too little details & you did not tell us if there is any display of your desktop on the screen...I know how annoying it is but please try another RAM stick. I don't think it's a monitor problem.
HOWEVER if all parts are OK & still the problem is not solved, you need to replace cable connected to your Hard Disk.
Please let me know so that we can help you further send your feedback. thanks.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen


If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.

Emachines model 780 monitor comes on for one second then goes blank


CANNOT COMPUTE!!!! NEED MORE DATA! Is your monitor the problem or the computer? Try connecting the monitor to another computer. You can also try connecting a laptop with an external video adaptor to the monitor to test it.

RE:monitor goes black


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.
