Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Monitor flickers sometimes when starting pc and won't come on.

\015 It also has to sit idle for about 10 to 15 minutes then if I turn it off and on it will finally start back up.\015

Answers :

If it is an older tube monitor - it seems it is at it's last breaths or the graphic adapter may be malfunctioning.

- please ensure all the cables( the internal ones, too) are attached properly,
-appropriate drivers fitting your OS are installed
- that there is no internal hardware conflict (IRQ conflict), please see: settings/hardware/device-manager for details

- try to hook up another monitor to double-check it is really the moni and not the graphics card!

if the issue occurs only in the original combinaton of old moni and PC, do consider to get a newer one.
another hint for an old moni is a slightly colour mismatch (maybe it has come to the red side?)
happy shopping
