    Assuming the system power comes up, does the monitor
    power come on? Most monitors have a status LED on the front bezel that should
    show green, orange, or blinking if the monitor is powered on. You can also
    hear most monitors power on with a gentle sound, though I can't describe
    it beyond saying it's the sound of a CRT tube warming up. Make sure the monitor
    is plugged into a good outlet by testing the outlet with a lamp or any other
    device that will prove beyond a doubt that the outlet is good. Make sure
    that the power cord is either permanently attached at the monitor end or
    that it is seated fully in the socket, since partial cord insertion is the
    most common failure for monitors with detachable cords.


    LCD displays don't make any sound when you turn them on, but they don't have
    a simple power cord, either. LCD monitors are usually powered by an external
    transformer, which in turn is powered from a regular AC outlet. If the LCD
    display doesn't show any signs of life, make sure that the cords into and
    out of the transformer are fully seated. Some transformers are equipped with
    a status LED to show when they are operating, though you can also check for
    live output with a DC voltmeter. The power connection to the LCD display
    is often awkward to inspect, recessed into the back of the display. The important
    thing is to make sure it is started correctly, then seated all the way.

    Few things related to computers are more embarrassing
    than taking your monitor for repair and finding out that the brightness was
    turned all the way down. This frequently happens with exposed dials when
    you pick up the computer monitor and move it, though a prankster might also
    turn down the settings when they're concealed behind a pop-out door right
    under the screen. Make sure that manual brightness and contrast controls
    on the monitor are set somewhere in the middle of their range, since it's
    not always obvious which way is maximum or minimum. If the monitor is alive,
    turning the brightness and contrast all the way up will often result in the
    screen lighting up a little. The easiest way to check if the monitor is good
    is to simply attach it to another working PC.

Please double check your physical connection first from monitor to the PC make sure they are tightly attached. Try to isolate the problem by using a different monitor if you have another desktop. If the same problem still persist, you have a defective monitor. Better claim your warranty to the store where you bought it since its still a couple of months old.

If you have a spare monitor try connecting that so we can check if this is really a problem with your monitor of the video card on your computer, Because if the other monitor works fien that's the time we can say that its a monitor problem and your monitor needs a replacement, But if you still have the same problem with the second monitor we can say that its a problem with your video card and that's the one that needs a replacement..

Hope that helps..........

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 monitor AOC 912Sw-4 does not turn on. Power button`s led is flashing all the time.At the beginning I waited some minutes and I could use it normally, but right now it is impossible see any image on it.


only choice is to give the monitor for service.
anyway read this, this help you.
is your CPU working properly? if that the case, your monitor is in need of a service.
reasons for why a monitor goes blank?
Reason 1: Wetness
The number one reason why computer monitors go blank is - wetness. Believe it or not, when your computer monitor is exposed to humid air, sometimes water can condense and accumulate in the monitor. This causes the monitor to malfunction and go blank. I've had this happen to my desktop PC at least three times before. What you need to do is to leave the monitor alone for some time and allow the water to evaporate. That usually solves the problem.

Reason 2: Faulty Graphics Card
The next reason why your computer monitor goes black is due to a faulty graphics card. The best way to detect this kind of problem is to connect up a new monitor to your PC, then check if you have a blank screen. If you continue to have a blank screen, then it's likely your video card is faulty.

Reason 3: Faulty RAM
This one is less obvious and less common, but it can happen. You might sometimes get bad RAM modules which prevent your PC from booting up even to the basic BIOS startup screen. To detect this kind of problem is more troublesome, you might need to remove those RAM modules and insert them into another computer.

Reason 4: Loose Connections
Another reason why your monitor goes blank is due to loose connections. The connection from the monitor to the mains is usually a culprit, as is the connection between the monitor and the video card. Check those connections before you declare your computer monitor as faulty.

Reason 5: A Short Circuit In The Motherboard
And the final reason why your computer monitor goes blank? It's possibly because of a short circuit in the motherboard. This is the most undesirable outcome of course, as you might have to replace your entire motherboard. However, it's possible that this can happen - so keep your fingers crossed and hope it doesn't happen to you.

have a nice day.

Acer AL1711 17" LCD Monitor goes blank without warning


The need to reboot your computer to get your monitor working places the blame totally in the computer. You have a virus, or the computer is overheating and shutting down for thermal reasons.

Screens works for 5 mins then goes blank!!!!!


It could also be that the video card is not compatible with this monitor. After the pc boots up, can you get into windows? Does the monitor always go out at a specific time on boot? Say for example; you boot the pc, windows startup splash screen comes on; screen does a quick flash and goes blank. Then it maybe the BIOS setting for the video. Try changing the IRQ setting. You could also try putting the video card in another slot. Do you have the manual for the motherboard? Ray
