Whenever we shut down we find there is a kind of backlight that remains on. Only way to get it off is to unplug. Monitor just changed because of it and the new one does the same. First one worked for a few months before doing this. Any ideas?

Shut pc down unplug power supply press and hold power button for 20 seconds to remove all remaning power.open case clean any dust find ram sticks remove them make sure there clean and re seat them back into there slots.your monitor could be the cause also unhook it while pc is unplugged. now put it all back together and turn it on..if it doesnt shut it down un hook monitor and fire up pc see if the pc boots by watching the lights.if so bad monitor does light turn blue on monitor when power on.
The cable leading from the source to the the monitor has given up this is usually the problem and is the most likely culprit. OR The Input setting has changed there is generally a button that changes the source near the power button or a menu button that allows you to change source.
You need to do two things. First, switch out your monitor input cord (the blue one) and get a new one. If you don't have a new one, then unplug both ends and make sure none of the pins are bent or broken. Then plug and screw in completly. If that doesnt work, google your monitors name and drivers, and redownload the drive for it. It should take you through a repair proccess which should fix it
Hold down the power button on your monitor, with the power on, for approx. 25-30 seconds and the monitor will shut down for good. When you will start it again, wait at least an hour, the message will be gone and the monitor will work as intended.
Try Unplugging the monitor and plugging back in again,,,you dont have to shut the PC down to do this,,,if it starts backup,,,then good... if it doesnt,,then you need another Monitor. An LCD monitor is better for your eyes anyway.
