I've got a weird problem...

Occasionally, my monitor will just go off. (it won't power off). It goes blank, and a message saying "no signal" comes up.
Like it's been disconnected...

It's a fairly new 17" LCD monitor.
I've had it for probalby 4 months...

I've checked the cables 5 million times, and they are connected corectly and are tight.

Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be ??

Sometimes I've doing something very important, and when it happens, there's nothing I can do except restart...

Please help !!
btw, I'm using Windows 2000 SP4, and all the latest updates from Microsoft

"no signal" means there is no video signal getting to the monitor. It may be a video card problem. Try turning off your computer, pull the ac cord, remove the video cable, remove and reseat the video card. Connect everything up again, and power up the computer.

A lot of times reseating the vid card will fix the problem especially if the computer is a bit older in years.

good luck,

Remove the video card from your device manager and turn off your comp. Open up the box and take out your videocard and reseat it and turn on your comp again. Let windows find a driver for it and see if that works.
