I'm having some issues with my second display.
The problem I have is that every now and then it turns off half.
With turns off half I mean that the screen goes black but the green light keeps burning green and is also still visible in the device manager. (normally the light is orange when not connected and off when its off)
If I proceed to turn the display off and then on again nothing happens but if I pull the plug it will work after reinserting it.
If I directly reinsert the plug the screen will only be on for less then a min but if I leave it unplugged for longer it generally stays on longer afterwards as well.
The problem occurs nearly every day, sometimes after just 5 min of turning it on sometimes after a few hour and sometimes it works without any issues.
I have already tried to replace the power cable but this had no results. I can not replace the VGA cable since this is one of those build in ones.
I have been having these problems for a few months now but the issue is occurring more often now and gets to a point where i can barely use the screen.
The screen i have is a Compaq FP7317
Can anyone tell me what the problem might be and if there is a solution or if the screen is just nearing the end of his life?
ps. Its a bit difficult to describe what the problem is, i hope i made myself clear, if not please don't hesitate to ask for more info!
