Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Monitor flashing colors, cannot see anything to fix anything.

\015 My Dell 19 inch monitor began displaying a light show. I turned off monitor and computer and restarted. The monitor came back. Since I was in Firefox when I turned computer off, I started Firefox back up with a ''new session.'' It opened to a Window which said I had a Dell driver problem, and could not be resolved. Then the monitor went out again...just showing flashing colors. I am at a friends and brought my monitor, plugged into another Dell and monitor worked fine.Problem...how can I resolve this if I can't see anything on the screen? I can't even get to Bios. I tried rebooting with Dell driver disc in CD, but nothing happens. Any help would be appreciated.\015

Monitor problem I have a Hanns-G HN199D 19" LCD monitor, have had it for about three years now, and never had a single problem yet. I've always turned my monitor off when I sleep at night, or go out somewhere. But just recently, one morning I got up and turned my monitor on. And the green power light would flash but the monitor would never come on. It took it about 10 minutes to finally come back on. It's done it three times, and I've kept the monitor turned on now to prevent it from not coming

My Samsung SyncMaster 2463UW no longer auto detects the video input. I normally use it with my MacBook Pro - I turn it on, it detects the digital output and Bob's your uncle.

However, I can actually see the correct output when it switches to ''digital'' mode - it just won't stay there.
