Having problems with your Dell Dimension 8400 PC Desktop ?
Monitor blinks on and off.
\015 I have a Dell Dimension 8400 with a Sceptre monitor. The monitor will start blinking on and off at the most inopportune times. The only solution I've found is to re-boot. What should I be looking for to fix this?\015
Try this, open your computer case and look at the monitor connector thing. Is it plugged in correctly? If not, plug it in. If it is, buy a new monitor connector, they are somewhat cheap. You can install it by yourself, all you need is a screwdriver.

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
