Answers :

Yeah, first try to reseat(unplug then replug the monitor signal data cord from the video card out port. Then if nothing a high probability of dirty contact on your memory card. Power down your unit then unplugged the chord from wall socket or UPS it will bite if you dont. Then clean the memory stick contact connector with soft gel eraser to clean it then replug it again. Power up, if not try to have a good working spare memory card to test.
