Hi all,am new to the forum. Hope someone can give me some help with my moniter at work (one man office).
When I got to work today I turned everything on, took care of some business, then returned to the computer, the screen was blank and the power button on the moniter was off. I pushed the button, nothing and I remember seeing the screen light up before I left my desk.
Keyboard lights on, light on the tower is lite, but no light on the moniter power button.
Next I unplugged the moniter power supply for a few seconds and plugged it back in and presto the screen lite up. Later in the day, blank screen. Same thing unplug, replug but now it will only stay on 60 seconds. Three times of this and I give up. It is quitting time.
Now I'm home,
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi and welcome go Geeks to Go. I would suspect the power supply is the cause. Component swapping would be a way to verify, such as try that power supply on another monitor (known to be working) or try another power supply (same thing, known to be workng) on that monitor. I know....hard to do in a one person office.
I have experienced a loose connector plug on a dc powered Dell flat screen. The monitor would stay on as long as I held the power connector in the plug a certain way. Almost as soon as I took my hand off, power went off. From what you describe, this is not the case.
