Sceptre X-24-wg LCD not bright dark
\015 I have a new 24'' monitor, and I bought a new computer for it. When I turn them on I do not see the boot sequence and then I look closely and I can make out the faint image of the ACER first time setup for Vista (this image does not fill the screen as well). I have adjusted the brightness on the monitor but it does not help. I have reverted to the manual to select f8 at start up and I am unable to see anything at all until I shine a flashlight at the monitor and I am able to make out the white letters on a black background.\015
If you can see the image in the monitor the light tubes are not firing and this is commonly caused by blown capacitors on the power board, the capacitors need to be replaced and the monitor should work fine.

My monitor only comes on for a few seconds and then goes very very dark, although the content is still there somewhere. But here's where I differ from the majority, if I can get to run System restore, the monitor will work perfectly fine again until the next morning when I need to switch it back on again. Unplugging the power lead from the back and utting it back in again will relight the screen for about two seconds before it all goes blank again.
