Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

Monitor Blinking My LCD monitor has been blinking (2 sec blank - 1 sec on) for a couple of days now. I connected the monitor onto another computer and it still blinked. I also fixed another monitor to the same computer and it worked fine. I changed the power code and switched off speakers and no difference. Any suggestion fix would be appreciated. I think this is a software or OS issue I have a KVM switch with 2 CPU in one I have WVU and the other has WXP. In the Vista CPU, the monitor blinks

HI SrFixer -
Since you were able to attach another monitor to the computer and it worked, that would indicate that the problem is not a computer problem but a problem with either the monitor or the monitor cable (data). Try another monitor cable on the monitor that didn't work and see if that works. If it still does not work, then I am afraid that your monitor has gone bad and needs replacing.

Hope that helps
