Having problems with your PC Desktops ?
It is on. Screen goes blank for no apparent reason. Has to be turned on again. Keep clicking the on/off switch. Will turn on. May stay on for minutes or even hours, but lately its becoming minutes or seconds. Very disruptive.
Is it possible that this is a software problem or a setting?
Or is it just time to buy a new monitor?
This is an old monitor.
