I was just having that same exact problem, but then just read on this website somewhere to unplug the moniter from the wall for about 10 minutes then plug it back in.... worked for me.

Try booting into the safe mode (On boot, hold down F8). Your problem may not occur in this mode. Then switch back to normal mode. If you happen to have an S or yellow compositte video cable, try hooking up your computer TV-out to TV (any). If problems still remains your video card (or onboard video) or monitor cable are suspect.

If it gives you message about the resolution, set the computer to use native resolution of the monitor. You can change the resolution by right clicking on desktop and choosing "screen resolution".

I keep getting an ''Auto Config Please Wait'' sign popping up non stop in a grey box on the center of my screen. How do I stop it?????


once you are online, go to the website for the monitor, and download the latest drivers. if that doesn't help, go to computer makers site, and do same thing. Seems the driver you need is absent from operating system.

Looks like you have a burned lamp.
Most LCDs have a lamp that lights the screen's image.
If you see the image, but its too dark.....you need a lamp replacement.

Auto Config????


Auto Config should (in theory) reposition the viewing area of the screen dependant on the resolution. So it fires up when the resolution your monitor is working at is different than the native one (1280x1024), if it's working in windows - set the resolution to 1280x1024 and it should work ok. right click on desktop>properties>settings p.s. also set the refresh rate to 60 hertz.
