My monitor keeps going black.. so I shut off the switch on the monitor; then turn it back on; then its ok.. but after sometimes just a few seconds it does it again... goes black again.. sometimes its...


Under display settings, it's best to use default theme like vista or xp theme. You can also go to screensaver, then power options and set how long it takes for monitor to shut off. I also recommend updating the video card drivers.

Screen goes black. the power light is on, but the picture goes out. if i turn the power off, then on again it comes back for about 5 seconds, then goes black again.


Check to see if this problem follows in safe mode. Reboot and when the Dell splash screen comes up tap F8 until you see the multiboot options. Scroll to "safe Mode with Networking" let the machine boot up and see if you have a screen. If you do, right click on the desktop and set the resolution to 800 X600 and reboot normally. Usually when a screen goes blank in normal mode but shows up in safe mode means you have an incompatible resolution for the monitor or graphics adapter. This may be a driver issue or hardware. If the screen boots up in normal mode at the lower resolution, then try and go to properties again and bump the resolution up a bit, if it blanks again, try to go online and update the driver for the graphics chip.

Monitor goes blank less than a second after turning on.


Monitor is bad for sure. Try another known good monitor on your computer and if the problem stops then you know for sure the original monitor is bad. Hope this helps.

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.

KDS monitor screen goes blank.when you shut it off & turn it back on it goes blank again within a few seconds.


make sure all the cables are secure... by unplugging and re-plugging them back in. Does the monitor feel very hot in the back or on top? If so unplug the monitor and tip it upside down to make sure nothing metal fell inside.
