Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Black Flat Screen, sometimes works for a second

\015 My LG flat screen has gone black. I double checked the connections at PC and screen. Can't find driver to reload. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

This is most likely the power inverter board in the monitor - this is\015\012common in many monitors. If it started taking longer and longer to\015\012display an image, and the power light is blinking on-and-off, that's\015\012most likely the problem.\015\012You can confirm that it's actually the monitor and not your computer\015\012or the cable by plugging in another monitor if you have one to try. If\015\012it's under warranty, send it back, if not, there are inverter boards\015\012for many common models of LCD monitors that are replaceable. The board\015\012can run anywhere from $50 on up. Depending on how old your monitor is,\015\012and how much you've invested into it, you may find it better to just\015\012replace it with a gently used one from ebay.

Hi. My computer is having a problem loading. Apparently, I went to work and then my wife decided that instead of turning it off the correct way just turned it off by hitting the power switch. Now when i try to turn it back on to reload, it powerrs up but the screen is black. Also I am not sure if there is a problem with the motor of my fan, because it is making a weird zzzzzzz noise. The fan is turning so the motor is working. As for the screen, I have held down the power button for 10 to 15 sec
