Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Computer monitor flashes on then turns off

\015 I have a Yakumo TFT 19 XF monitor that I am using with a very old Gateway computer. Within the last few days, the monitor's display turns off inexplicably (though the green power light is still on - and it is not a result of a screensaver or power-down function).\015\012\015\012When I restart the computer, the same thing happens. The monitor power light will go green, the screen will light up for a second then completely black out. If I turn the monitor off and on again by itself (without powering down the computer) the same thing happens - it lights up for about a second then goes black again.\015\012\015\012Originally I could restart the computer a few times and then the monitor would come up and stay up, but now it won't do it at all. I have tried unplugging everything and plugging it back in, checking for dust, etc. Not sure what to try next since there is clearly power, but not much flow....\015\012\015\012Thanks so much for your help! -Charlene\015

Answers :

Try the monitor with another computer. If it works, the video circuitry (whether it is on-board or a separate adapter) in the Gateway is the problem and needs to be replaced. Otherwise, the problem is with the monitor itself. From your description it is probably the Gateway's video that is the problem since the power light on the monitor remains green indicating that it is seeng a signal, but not something it can properly interpret, i.e., one or more of the control signals are shot.
