Welcome to GeeksToGo,
My name is Cbarnard I hope I may be of some assistance to you.
Please keep in mind this is not our job and I'm not here 24\7.
It can take a little bit of time for me to reply back to you, if it has been more than 48hrs since a reply, please PM me and I will be with you as soon as possible.
With that said lets take a look and get this problem taken care of.
I've waited patiently, and I've got the feeling I'm on everyone's ignore list. sad.gif Either that, or there's nothing to suggest.
We try to help people that have older posts first, there aren't always people on that have the expertise to deal with certain issues. NO one is ignoring you.
Someone other than myself could be working on a reply right now. Some problems take a large amount of research to provide an appropriate response. We don't want to give you bad advice and harm your computer.
There are several things to suggest. There always is... It is just sometimes it isn't what people want suggested.
However, first thing this morning I loaded up my browser, and seconds later my monitor went blank. Shut off monitor, turned it on again, everything was fine for a few seconds. Repeated shut off/on a few times. After which, no problem my monitor may not go blank for the entire day. It's not predictable. I've no problem with how the display looks.
It sounds like your monitor is on the way out. You will probably have to purchase another soon.
Lets just check a few things maybe we will get lucky.
How long is the monitor staying blank?
Check the connection to and from the monitor from the rear I\O panel
Do you have a second type of connection you can try? (DVI, HDMI, D-sub)
Naturally, I'd rather not hear my monitor is on it's way out.
I don't think any one wants to hear that...
Lets test the monitor to see if it is the problem.
Do you have a second computer (anywhere) that you can test your monitor on.
Or a second monitor you can try on your computer
If either setup works then it is related to your motherboard.(MOBO)
Click (Windows button - Pause Break
) like you would Ctrl- Alt -Del
Now click on the hardware tab> device manager
Scroll down do you see any red or orange question marks or exclamation points?
If you do what are they?
Have you updated the drivers for your MOBO and other hardware?
Click here for the driver updates
for your computer.
You will just have to fill in some specific info.
Update the video on your computer for now. until we figure this out. After that you can update the rest of the drivers.
let me know how this works.
