We have an Envision 9410e 19" LCD monitor which is about 4 years old. Recently it has started being very slow to start up, especially in the morning after the system is not in use all night. The screen stays black "too long," then it starts flashing, so that the user only sees the images for an instant, alternating with black. After a couple of minutes, the picture kicks in. Sometimes it will do this later during the day, after a break, but not always. / We tried switching the monitor with the o
