Question about NEC Mitsubishi Diamond Pro 730 (White) 17" CRT Monitor
Hi, I'm not sure what is wrong with my monitor. When hooked up to my own PC it works fine (hence me being able to type this message out) but when its hooked up to my parents PC (an Evesham) there are problems. Today it started doing a thing where it will boot up as normal, the PC starts and the monitor automatically turns on from standby. It starts to loads up Windows, but just as it gets past the initial loading screen, the monitor shuts itself down again. If I turn it off and on, it just keeps shutting itself off. There is no problem when it's hooked up to a different PC, just the Evesham. Any ideas? Julie
You may have to go to safe mode to do this, if the the monitor is turning off to fast. Most have to hit the F8 key will the system is booting. That way everything will be set to default and you will be able to maneuver around and make the change.

But before doing that, Check the refresh rate that your parents Video is set to" Example: Your pc may be able to support 85khz refresh, but your parents may only be able to use 72khz max. This is located in SETTINGS>ADVANCED>MONITOR>REFRESH Select from dropdown box a lower rate. Though be leery of 60khz refresh rate(if you're in US) which may flicker under flourescent lighting. Maybe low as 50khz for Europe for flicker.

It sounds like the problem is with the computer's video adapter settings. It is very likely that the monitor cannot handle the settings. If you boot into safe mode, can you see everything? If so, then the normal mode settings are too high. Safe mode defaults to the lowest possible settings (thats why everything will look really big) Try turning down the resolution (Right click on the desktop, select properties, go to settings tab) to the lowest possible setting, and then slowly try turn them back up again until you can find the maximum setting the monitor can handle.

SOURCE: Monitor picture fades out.
I thought my problem was originally monitor related. However since I posted, the picture disappeared altogether, and my PC wouldn't even start to bootup. Fearing my mobo may have died I removed the hardware components, cleaned then re-assembled them. After all that, it turned out that my graphics card has a tendency to become slightly unseated. Once I was aware of this problem booting up resumed normally. It seems that the problem of the fading monitor picture seems to still occur, but soon after I use the machine after 'hibernation' state, and even then it doesn't always occur if I do use hibernation. I haven't used hibernation for a little while and so far the problem has not returned

Does the power light stay on? If so, you have an inverter problem. If the power light goes off, you have a power supply problem.
